Lg top loader model wt5101hw will not drain checked drain line its good can i acess pump without taking machine apart? Anything else I can do is it possible to check pump to see if its clogged or damaged.


Exact model, same problem here. Purchased March 2011. I was also getting error code "OE". Sears repair came today, and the water pump impeller was jammed.

He took the drain hose off the back (Watch out, water drained all over from water outlet) and stuck his finger in the water outlet. By spinning the impeller backwards and then forwards, he was able to dislodge whatever was clogging it.

Repair would have been around $170.00 if it wasn't warranty repair.

Hope this helps.

When switching on the washing machine the water doesnt enter. it gives an 1E error as well

E1 : washing machine has exceeded a check time for fill, heat or empty.

Common causes for this are fill and empty problems, heater fault (or the wiring
to it broken), water pump open circuit (although that would stop the water draining too) Pressure chamber blocked or pressure tubing pipe looped below the pressure bottle, or a sticking eco ball in the sump hose (sludge and grease build up) I WOULD FIRST CHECK THE PUMP AND SEE IF IT IS CLOGGED AND IF THE FILTER IS CLOGGED THEN CHECK OUT THE PRESSURE LINES THEY ARE LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE MACHINE AND BEHIND THE BACK PANEL

E-13 error code is a drain timeout code. This means the pump has run a certian amount of time without fully draining itself. This could be anything from a clogged drainline in your home to a clogged drainline in the machine, your pump is clogged, pump is burned up, no power to the pumpetc. Most of the time its either something jammed in the pump, or its burned up (from something being jammed in it). If your model has a filter on the front of the machine, put down plenty of towels and slowly undo the filter. Water will come out. Check to see if its blocked or if the outlet hose is blocked.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Fridgidaire front load will not empty fabric

Hello, W/D here.

There are a couple of reasons why the fabric softener will not dispense. If everything else dispenses properly (detergent and bleach), then I would suspect a bit of plugging. If the softener remains in the dispenser, the water valve above the tray may be sticking. You'll have to get the top up to check it. If there is water in the tray, or some water/softener, then you'll need to look at the overflow cap. Here's how that works: Your dispensing trays for bleach and softener have a raised tube built into them, and each is covered with a loose fitting cap. When water is let into the tray, the level rises under the cap until it overflows, creating a syphon. The softener is literally pulled from the tray, and chased by the water. When the water stops, the tray level continues to drop, until air gets into the cap, breaking the syphon. The cap can be removed and cleaned. Sometimes the tray has to be removed first. Theres a catch towards the rear of the tray.
Best regards, W/D

Same thing happened to us. The problem is a clogged drain filter, and it is very easy to fix. It involves removing 3 screws, and about 1/2 hour to fix the problem. I've outlined the steps below. 269ae44.jpg355ce5c.jpgbcbc7d8.jpg7762d05.jpgfdc1390.jpg8092ed9.jpg6abec1e.jpg

Reverse the steps to put everything back together, and you'll be back in business!
