Normally pump filter is the best place to start it could be jamed with a coin or hair clip if you take machine outside and empty it then lay it on its side you can access the pump take it off then stand up the machine and pour hot water into the soap draw check water should run out of bottom freely taking any fluff or bits with it now take apart the pump and clean it all out dry all components before reasembly if the machine still doesent wory could need a new pump

    at the bottom right front of the machine there is a 3 inch plastic cover , remove this cover to revial a 2 inch circular scew/disc . this is the filter unit , I removed this screw / filter (make sure you are outside or a place with good drainage as this will drain all the liquid from the washing machine) to find a piece of elastic which was impeeping the function of the draining impellar .I removed the elastis then poured water through the compartment for the washing powder to make sure there was no further objects . I replaced the cleaned filtrer unit . this seems to have fixed my problem. good luck

There is a magnet in the lid on the side that needs to connect to the sensor within the machine, it could be that your magnet has come away or dislodged, worst case is to puchase a strong enough magnet to glue on or to replace the lid.

I have a Hair Washing Machine, everytime I started my load it would beep and flash E2 in digital screen, I just played around with the lid, applying pressure on the right bottom side and it started to work - when I let go of the pressure it went back to beeping, so Im gathering it is the lid, so far I have something heavy sitting on the left hand side of lid - this will work until I can get it fixed.

Its a common error,
Error message:Drain error, water can be not drained fully within the required drain time
Reason 1. Pump filter is blocked.
Solution 1. Please open and clean the pump filter. (Filter access door is on the bottom right, at floor level of the washing machine)
Step 1.Push a flat blade screwdriver into the slot on the filter cover and pull it open ,do not use excessive force.(Fig 1).
Step 2.Remove the rubber hose from its clip and stand a suitable container under it, remove the bung to drain the water (Fig 2-3)
Step 3.Replace the bung and fit it back into its clip (Fig 4-5).
Step 4. Unscrew the filter and rinse it under running water, replace it and close the flap(Fig 6-7-8).
1. The filter must be in place during operation, ensure it is in place after cleaning to avoid leakage.
2.Place a container under the drain pump filter, to collect any excess water that may come out of the drain pump when the filter is removed.

Reason 2. Drain hose end is higher than 100cm above the floor level.
Solution 2. Please adjust the height of drain hose to 80-100cm above the floor.

Reason 3. Drain hose is blocked or twisted.
Solution 3. Please check and clean the drain hose for blockage.

Reason 4. Drain hose is too long, or water is back filling from waste water pipes.
Solution 4. Remove any extension to the original drain hose.
Ensure the highest part of the drain hose is nearest the washing machine.Check the waste water pipes in the building are clear of any obstructions and flow freely.

Haier HWM5TL error E2 is the lid not closed error.
switch in control panel and sensor near front in the top body frame is the problem. try pressing start and keep pressing it and do not stop pressing it. is machine does what it should while pressing the button then it's something to do with the lid not being told it's closed. pressing and holding the start button is a manual over ride to test the machine.

My washing machine toshiba aw-9760s Kept showing this "E2 -3" problem. Whenever i close the lid to start washing my cloths. Anyone here can help me? In need of answers A.S.A.P

I also have a Toshiba AW-9790S, and encountered similar problem. The E2-3 would occur sporadically and halt the washing programme. E2-3 error occurs when the washing machine detects that the lid is not properly seated and locked during the rinse or spin cycles. I took mine apart and resolved my problem by cleaning the contacts for the switches. There are 2 contact switches at the lower right side; 1 for sensing the lid is closed and 1 for sensing that the lid lock is engaged. Both the switches were slightly oxidized which prevented current flow and the sensors from working properly.

Washing machine XQB90-701CLPS KEEP COMING E2

The error code E2 points at a faulty lid switch. Check that the lid is well closed, check the lock mechanism. The lid switch can be tested by running a cycle with its contacts jumped.

E2 comes up once cycle is selected what and how do I fix this?

This machine is very problematic. I had the E2 Error as well. The problem, like dddd501 said, is with the spring in the left hinge of the top lid. It probably gets loose after some use. I solved this, after many trial and errors by wedging a piece of thick cardboard in the gap between the top lid and the surrounding machine in such a way as to PUSH the top lid BACKWARDS into the direction of the control panel. This, I presume, will force the spring into whatever sensor that detects the top lid is closed and removes the E2 message.

Hope helps.

My washer wont do anything and keeps flashing L5

The control should flash this error code if the following conditions occur: ? The control cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly. ? There is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch (the control should not allow the unit to run in this condition). ? The user presses the START key while the lid is open. ? The user presses the START key without opening thelid between cycles.  Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Power cuts off

The machine beeps E2 all the time. Actually E2 error code means washer door is not closed properly. However washer door does close properly, but the machine still beeps with showing E2 error code. Please help solve this problem.

Many thanks,

E2 error but I did close the door

I think there is a problem with the spring that is attached on the left hinge of the door. Try elevating the door for a couple of milimeters with some rubber object. that should help
