how do you manually pump water out of Frigidaire front load washer model # XXXXX

Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Is this not pumping the water out by itself? What exactly is this doing? Did she get to the rinse cycle and stop full of water?

was in the wash mode whenit started making a noise that sounded like a pump running dry or not getting proper prime. she shut it down removed clothes and dipped out the water that she could.

Okay it sounds like you may have something stuck in the pump or one of the hoses coming from the drum to the pump this could be a small sock or handkerchief or anything for that matter, these drain pumps are easily blocked, sometimes even a coin if it gets through can turn sideways and block the water from draining, I have actually had this happen to me in my own washer, click this blue link for a video on how to remove the pump. clear it and put it back in. if it still doesn't drain you need to replace the pump, hope this helps, thanks, Bryan

So, how do you go about removing the water in the machine with out making a large mess?

That's the difficult part, what I usually do is tip the machine back in leaning against the wall, get as much water out as possible. Leaving it leaned against the wall and opening the hose clamp slowly you can sop up what's left in the hose so you don't make so much of a mess, unfortunately this is a pain but it's the best way to do it and if you keep it leaned against the wall what little bit of water will be left in their will stay in the back of the XXXXX XXXXX of them come out. Do not let the machine down until you have the pump back in though. Hopefully all you find is something in the pump assembly and you could put it back together after this is cleared out . Thanks, Bryan
