  1. Prepare the washer

    Unplug the washer from the electrical socket, and remove all cloth items from the washer. Wring the clothes over the washer tub, and place them in a basket. Position a bucket in front of the washer, and insert one end of the shake siphon in the bucket.

  2. Siphon the water out of the washer tub

    Insert the other end of the shake siphon hose that has a metal valve on it into the washer tub. Shake the hose through the water so that it sucks up the liquid. Ensure that the hose forms suction and the water flows through into the bucket.

  3. Drain the washer

    When the bucket becomes three-quarters full, remove the siphon, and pour out the water. Repeat the process until there is no water left in the washer, and dry the inside part of the washer using dry towels. Allow the interior to air dry by leaving the washer lid open before starting repairs.
