The washer is saying LE what does this mean. I had it on delicate cycle and now there is water in the machine and it needs to spin out. Help.


Apparently "LE" can mean a million different things - everything from "your drain motor is burned out" to "your drain filter is clogged" to "you used too much soap". I have found that usually it is the latter. I gather that what "LE" really means is that the drain flow rate is not high enough. Here's the quick fix that you hope will work, and that has always worked for me (knock on wood):
1. Get a 5-gallon bucket (or a little less)
2. Open the little door on the bottom left of the front (pry it open with a quarter, like it says in the owner's manual)
3. There is a drain hose with a plug in it. Pull out the plug and let the water drain into the bucket
4. There is a gross trap/filter in that same door. After draining, unscrew that filter, remove and clean out, then screw it back in place.
5. Replace the plug in the drain hose, and close the door back.
6. Try running the washer again, but don't add any soap. If it was the filter that was clogged, the washer will run to completion, everything is fixed, and you can start your free happy dance.
7. If it stops again and gives the "LE" again (likely), then drain the water into the bucket again, replace the plug, and start the washer at the beginning again without adding any soap. Usually by the third time I do this, the washer will run to completion and I can commence the free happy dance, followed by the gentle reminder to my lovely spouse not to use too much soap, that the washer actually cleans better with the right amount of soap, even on those extra dirty clothes.
Hope this helps!

Water is in the drum after a complete washing cycle, you can't see the water but you can here it slushing around and leaves a foul order when not used for several days.


Make sure that the outlet hose is not blocked and the filter is clear.

If this is OK then the following from Maytag may be helpful. If not call a repair man for service.

Is the Delicate or Hand Wash cycle selected?
Spin speeds can vary by the cycle that is selected. Your washer is designed so that in certain cycles, such as the Delicate or Hand Wash cycles, the spin speeds are slower. In these cycles, more water is retained in the load at the end of the cycle to protect the delicate fabrics from shrinking and wrinkling. Select the appropriate cycle based on the fabric being washed.
Was Max Extract selected?
Ideal for heavy loads such as towels and bedding, Max Extract removes more water from loads during spin.

Were you washing one bulky item, such as a rug or large blanket?
Consider adding more items to help balance the load during spin. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only cycle and restart the washer. Your washer is designed to detect an unbalanced load and automatically lower the spin speed. Unbalanced conditions are more likely to occur with a single, bulky item.
Are excessive suds present?
Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Using non-HE detergent or more than the manufacturer's recommended amount of detergent can cause excessive suds. The excess suds can cause the washer to run at a reduced spin speed, which will result in very wet loads.
See also: Why HE High Efficiency detergent is required

Is the drain hose kinked or is the drain clogged?
Make sure the drain hose is not kinked. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form or hose retainer on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose. See the Installation Instructions for details.

Is the end of the drain hose more than 96" (244 cm) above the floor?
The drainpipe (standpipe) height requirements are: 96" (244 cm) maximum and 30" (76.2 cm) minimum. Your washer will not be able to adequately pump the water out of the washer if the drainpipe (standpipe) exceeds 96" (244 cm). In this case, the water may flow back into the washer. See the Installation Instructions for details; find them by entering your model number in the Manuals and Literature search below.

Is your outlet voltage low?
Check the electrical source or call an electrician.

Washer tub won't empty even thoufh whole cycle done


you need to get the drain hose out and lower it into a bucket and let gravity do the rest, all the hose has to be lower than the water level in the machine though, and get the drain pump and sump checked out for blockages after.

Washer quits during cycle


That is a SUDS LOCK. Open the front panel to access the drain pump filter. Clean it out. Run several cycles without any detergent to clear out the soap being retained in the washer. If you are not using H.E. soap, switch to it. Use the amount of detergent specified on the package. Front load machines will not work correctly with excessive soap and the laundry gets no cleaner with more soap.Also use high water levels not medium or low. Use hot water whenever possible to reduce the suds residue.

What does "IE" mean when it attempts spin cycle?


is it IE or LE please confirm it. if it is LE code the fixing procedure is given below This usually happens if you're washing on a delicate setting with a moderate load of clothes. Apparently, delicate also means very few items to wash. To clear the LE code - no need to unload the clothes:
1. Press the power button to turn the washer off.
2. Press the power button to turn the washer back on.
3. Cycle the spin cycle selection to 'no spin'.
4. Press start.
The washer should set to one minute, lock the doors, then drain out the excess water.
Once the 'End' cycle comes up, unplug the machine for several minutes.
Plug the washer back in, press the power button, then set the washer to 'normal' with 'low' spin setting.
Note that the only difference between the normal setting and delicate is the wash time and spin cycle speed. If you have a moderate to large load of delicates, use the normal setting on low spin cycle. The clothes really don't care. Also, make sure you're using 'HE' detergent - low suds. Regular degergent in a front load is not recommended.

Leaks on Delicate but not on Normal.


Appears to have been the drain holes below the rubber drum flange. My wife cleaned in there for the first time after our speaking to a lowes sales person who owns one as well. When I monitored the next "delicate" load with the front panel off and after cleaning, there was no sign of water anywhere. Hope this was the solution. My wife also mentioned the loads (on delicate) came out damper than the norm but this time it was much drier. Wonder if delicate cycle may fill the washer higher than the normal cycle.

As a footnote we mentioned an occasional musty smell would occur and the same sales person said to not only leave the front door ajar but also open the soap drawer. When I checked the service manual I noticed the unit has a vent hose which vents into the soap drawer. All makes sense when you consider a front load is much tighter sealed than a top load.

I would check the water hoses for twisting, make sure the water faucets are turned on all the way, and check the filters at the washer end of the hoses to make sure they are clean. I would also check the drain system to make sure it is clean and the machine is draining well.

Elastic eating front load washer


Check the inside drum vanes. Sometimes the vanes may crack and grab certain items.Next check the front of the drum and tub for any loose items like wires from bras or curtains sometimes these may get stuck in the drum or vane and cause this problem.Also check your soap make sure there is not alot of suds this is my number one problem with these machines.H.E. soap is best but watch liquid tide it's been sudsing alot.
