Fault Indication - "Over Flow"

Yesterday I was running high temp water through my empty machine - I find this keeps the drain hose clear. However, after 20 minutes the machine display flashed "Fault Indication - Over Flow" and water leaked from the bottom of the machine. I have checked the pin trap and cleaned out the soap dispenser. The machine won't move on from here. Any ideas what to do or what can be wrong?

Re: Fault Indication - "Over Flow"

Does manual say to clear drain by running high temp water to clear drain; i dont think so. Now you have to unscrew the back to see where the leak comes from - by pouring plain water into the machine (where u put clothes). Unplug all electrical connections, ie disconnect the machine from the wall socket. Pl post back

GWL11 washer not draining

That fault code is 37.
Disconnect from power & Bail out all the water you can before removing pump.
Here is some info on fault 37
37. (00100101) Pump Blocked Error (No change in the water level)
While draining, the water level reading from the pressure sensor has not changed for over 3
minutes. There are three likely reasons for this fault. One is that the drain hose or the
pressure switch hose has been squashed or kinked and the pump out rate has been
dramatically reduced. The second possibility is that the pump is partially or fully blocked.
The third is that the pump is not operating due to Motor Control Module, wiring or pump
failure. This fault could also appear if the machine is pumping to an unusually high head of
drain hose or into an extended length of drain hose. The fourth possibility is a diverter
valve fault or blockage, water level is not altering as the diverter is stuck in the recirculation
mode, giving the module the appearance the pump is not lowering the water level.
Primary Source: Pump System.
Action: 1) Check that the drain hose has not been kinked.
2) Check the length of the drain hose and try to reduce the length if
excessively long. A 1-metre extension hose of the same diameter
fitted to the existing drain hose is the maximum allowable length.
3) Check for open circuit windings in the pump. (Note: Pumps are
fitted with a thermal cut-out, which will reset on cooling.)
4) If the bowl is empty of water, remove the pump from the pump
housing and check that it is not blocked. Also check the drain
hose is not blocked.
5) If the bowl contains water, then service the pump from the top of
the machine by removing the top deck and inner bowl. Bail out the
water, remove the pump cap and hood and clear the restriction.
Secondary Source: Wiring.
Action: 1) Check the pump harness is connected correctly to the pump.
2) Check continuity of the pump harness.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Activate the pump by operating the machine in spin mode. Check the
pump is rotating. If it is not operating, and Primary and Secondary
checks have been performed, then replace the Motor Control Module.

What does E20 mean

The E20 error code indicates a problem with water drainage. Inspect the drainage hose for kinks that could impede the drainage flow. This frequently occurs when the machine is pushed up against the wall without allowing room for the hoses. If there are no kinks, the hose is probably clogged. Carefully detach the hose from the machine, and use a garden hose to force water through it. If the water doesn't pass through, use a plumber's snake to clear the clog. If there is no clog, inspect the drain pump for clogs. Unplug the machine, and open the small rectangular door towards the bottom of the front of the machine. Drain the pump through the emptying hose into a container until the water flow stops, and rotate the pump impeller to clear any foreign objects. Close the pump and restart the cycle. If the problem persists, contact a service center.

Stops in cycle and says f 02

F02 error is related to drain pump block.If the drain pump gets blocked or the drain hose is blocked the error comes up,this is indication of cleaning the drain pump and drain hose.If the drain pump and drain hose checked ok then its faulty drain pump,its not draining the water so the error f-02 is showing up. error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Remove the wide tapering pipe from the drum to the pump. Inside there is a non return ball valve. Clean this and see if that helps. Take the front bottom panel off and open the drain trap,and see if there is any thing got stuck up,like coins,nails,socks or any small cloth etc etc.--------------While removing the drain pump and drain hose for cleaning,please keep thick towel with you.As you disconnect the drain pump from its connection,lot of water will flow towards you,if your machine is filled with water.So keeping this towel with you will help to control this water flow towards you.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Load not draining properly. have to run spin cycle multiple times.

Check drain hoses to be sure they are clear and not stoped up. You can probably tip the washer back to get to it underneath. If you have to, unhook them and run water through them. Check the water pump be sure it is turning. It may have something in it or be stripped and won't turn Take hose that goes from tub to water pump & be sure it is clear & don't have something in it like a sock to stop water flow. Check drain to sewer for water going out ok. Be sure drain hose is not too high unlikely. Best way is to remove cabinet so you can get to everything and see the water pump. Hope this helps.

Zanussi ZWF1437W E23

E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.

Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.

Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.

W640 - Water Outlet Fault

I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.

Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.

Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.

Fault Indication - "Over Flow"

problem may be to with using very hot water which has dislodged sludge. fault may cure top of machine is a usually round device with 3 to 7 wires to it depending on type used. also connected is a small diameter hose. trace this hose to bottom of machine and it is connected into an air chamber. check air chamber is not clogged with sludge and if it is, clean it. remove small diameter hose and check not clogged as well and that there are no splits with it. there is really no need to clean appliance at all unless you are using liquid detergent which over time leaves a smell like drains. if you are, recommmend using powder

Water flowing back into washer after wash

There is a back flow valve attached to the outlet port of the drain pump. It is just a small rubber flap. This sometimes comes loose or remains open due to debris and allows the water in the drain hose to flow back into the machine after the drain pump shuts off. It can be checked by removing the drain hose from the pump inside of the machine. You will lose all of the water in your machine (about 1/2 gallon)when you do this so be prepared with a bunch of towels.
