Good luck.
There is a trap at the bottom of this machine you can get to it from the bottom.this is a very wet project if you take any hoses off there will be lots of water draining so be prepaired with a large towel or shopvac.check to see if anything other than the 2 white balls are in there, the white balls are sapose to be in there,sometimes a underwire gets in there and collects hair and lint.

A lot of water standing in washer. clothes are clean and spun, the water seems to increase each time.

You have have some debris in the drain boot. Remove the back access panel on the washer. Look on the bottom of the tub and you will see a hose (boot) the comes off the tub going to the pump. Remove the boot and clear any debris that may be hampering the draining. Also, while you have the boot off, stick a finger up into the tub to check if there may be a small article of clothing that may be blocking the drain hole.

My GE Front Load Washer appears to have a broken belt as it stopped in the middle of a wash cycle but the motor was still running. I turned the power button off and unplugged it but the motor stays running...

According to your wiring diagram, if you remove power from the machine for approximately 5 minutes, the door should unlock.
If you find the tub is still full of water, you may have a blockage in your drain pump or pre-filter. To access the pump pre-filter and pump, un-plug the washer and slide it forward so that you can tilt it back and lean it against the wall behind it.
Next remove the three screws located at the very bottom of the front of the washer that hold the lower access panel on. Allow the access panel to drop down and set it off to the side.
In the front right corner you will see the drain pump.
The hose that comes from the outer tub to the pump is designed to trap coins/debris in the base of it, you can remove the hose from the pump by using pliers to squeeze the clamp and slide it backwards.
Be sure to get ready for some water to come out if there is still water left in the tub. Hopefully you will find a sock or some coins in the base of this hose trap that are causing your issues, if not be sure to check the pump inlet where the hose connects to the pump, it is just about the right size for a quarter to become lodged inside stopping the flow of water to the pump.
Good luck with this!!

What does problem f2 mean


the drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

Take care.

Washer is not draining properly. Goes through the wash cycle but does not drain leaving a small puddle of water in the tub...along with wet clothes.

If repeating the drain/spin cycly reduces this problem, it's probable that the pump filter is partially blocked. Assuming the washer is front load type, the pump filter is accessed by a small door at floor level. Undo the filter cover and clean the filter of debris. Be careful, because any water in the machine will flow out at this point. Leaning the machine back can reduce this...Good luck....Nomess

How to clean pump filter on lg wm2688hwm

No, probably have a bad water pump, very common for this washer. I would pull the washer out, lean it against your wall, brace or block it up so you can crawl under it. You will see where the drain hose comes out of the bottom left of the drum and enters the drain filter. Remove the hoses and check for debris or clothes in the hoses or where the drum outlet is. If no restrictions then replace your water pump. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Clothes come out covered in lint and hairs.

If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here's the information you need to check the drain pump:


1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here's a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don't own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there's nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT - DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console - DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). "C00" will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.

NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

Water is not draining from my front load washer. Not sure of model number could be GBVH6260 through WHDVH626. I'd like a set of drawings to determine how to access the pump and dishcharge system.

Front load washers tend to collect debri in the drain path, particuraly thinks like coins, hair clips, etc. There is a large drain plug that has access to a filter. On this model, the lower front panel needs to be removed. You then see a large plastic valve that you can remove and get rid on debri. I need to clear mine every year. Warning, all remaining water in the tub will gush out, have towels ready.

Doesn't spin the clothes dry on the final spin but spins at high revolutions without a load of clothes

I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....
