I have Samsung 10kg top loader. Pretty sure it has a drain pump, as according to the installation instructions, the drain hose should be connected to a drain pipe 60-90cm above the ground.

Do you happen to know the model # of your Samsung? The 7kg MCA linked to appears to only be available in Hong Kong; at least I couldnt find it online at a Philippine reseller.

HondaGuy I made several attempts online also to find a washing machine with a pump drain and no luck... I also read several comments on some of the machines and many if not all the top loaders seem to be draining from the bottom.

I was convinced that my LG top loader 9 kilo washing machine had a pump in it from all the video's I watched on YouTube and so I chiseled out an upper hole between 60 - 90 cm and ha haa after reading the manual, the manual shows two different drain hoses the hose with the HOOK has the drain pump but all other's with the straight hose are hooked to the bottom... so... I had to chisel some more the lower area to make room for the much larger drain hose.

Contacting these stores would be a wasted effort also because they don't even know their own products recent example:

- I purchased a two year extended warranty and the store rep couldn't find the S/N while in the store and jotted down the wrong S/N he called us and said he had the wrong S/N but I found it and gave it to him and updated my documents.

- I asked sales rep in the store are the bottom pegs adjustable... he said no, but it turned out they were and good! when I got home.

The only way to verify that the top loader has a drain pump would be to check the floor models for that hook drain hose... your family members located here would check for this.

I hear you Mark, we have a wash trough next to the washing machine and sadly like you had to bang a hole through the wall at ground level, attached a 32mm hose 6 metres long and we water the garden with it so while we remember the plants within 6/8M get watered and have prospered even with detergent. As said a little like buying a fridge here with a L/H opening door. We improvise and move on.

BTW I also made several attempts to find something with a drain pump and nada.

Cheers, Steve.

I dont know if I can really blame the salespeople in the stores; I would guess 80% of the manuals I downloaded didnt say if the washer had a drain pump or not. I had to look for the installation instructions and if it said not to raise the drain hose more than 2" off the ground, I went ahead and assumed no drain pump.

That's exactly my plan; I'm going to wait until I can get there and then go store to store looking at the top loaders on display and see how the drain hoses are routed and if any have that little door to clean the drain pump filter.

I cannot see any specific mention of a drain pump however.

hogrider, thanks!
I downloaded the manual for your Samsung and it looks like it covers models both with and without the drain pump.
The one way I've been able to tell if a particular model has a drain pump or not is if there is a door or plug to clean the pump filter. In the manual for yours, on page 32 it shows the pump filter. If your model has that, it should have a drain pump. If it doesnt, then it probably doesnt have the pump.

Well supplied Dave, good on you. I am stuck with the Samsung 12 kg """no pump""" model, hole through the wall and will eventually plumb it into the kitchen waste that goes into its own pit seperate to the septic which is better for the bacteria so not all was lost.

How are you settling in with your new house and environs? Take care.

Cheers, Steve.

FYI to anyone interested....

S&R Dau has more American brand full size washers & dryers now. Sorry, don't remember all the prices. All washers were top loads.

Speed Queen, matching washer and gas dryer, around 50 k each, I think

Maytag - Matching washer and gas dryer, I think, in the 40's?

Whirlpool - Matching washer and electric dryer. The dryer is only 32 k.

There was also a Whirlpool industrial looking washer like you would have at a laundry. 48 k I think.

I will stick to doing laundry by hand for now. Since all I usually wear is a pair of gym shorts, only put on a shirt on grocery shopping days, it is pretty easy to wash them in a bucket when I shower, hang to dry and ready to go next day.
