Is it normal for 2 inches of water to remain in space where filter container is positioned...whenever filter is removed water is in the compartment where filter rests


In my experience the lowest section of the washer has always retained some water about a cup or two. If the one way valve(check valve) in the drain hose has failed or residue trapped in it more water will drain back at the end of cycle. You can see from the image the volume of additional water that would be trapped in the hose that if the one way valve leaks; the water in the hose would leak back into the tub.

the drain hose is required to go above the drain connection to prevent back flow into the washer. the one way valve in the drain hose is required to prevent back flow into the tub in the event of a blocked drain.

I hope that this helps.

Check Valve Replacement part 8268375 Whirlpool Dishwasher Repair

In some washers the check valve is critical because the pump reverses during the normal cycle. The attached video is an example of the check valve replacement in a Whirlpool. I have found all washers are similar.

You can usually hear when the pump has emptied the tub by a change of pitch from the motor. If you quickly open the door and observe the remaining water level that is as low as I would expect.

Why is it displaying f2 code and will not drain?


The F2 fault code indicates a problem with the washer's drain system, and you must troubleshoot the problem to determine how to fix the washer and clear the code.
Clogged Drain Hose The drain hose on a Kenmore washer should remain free of obstructions so the water drains from the washtub. the drain hose behind the washer can impede the flow of water from the washer. A drain hose inserted more than 4 1/2 inches into a floor or wall standpipe drain system can cause the water to siphon back into the washtub.
Stuck Water-Level Pressure Switch Your Kenmore washer uses a water-level pressure switch in the control panel to detect the level of water inside the washtub. You can find the pressure switch behind the control panel in top-load models or attached to the inside wall of front-load models. The round switch is approximately 3 inches in diameter with a clear or black plastic tube connected to the bottom or side of the switch. The tube runs from the pressure switch to the exterior washtub. As the water fills the washtub, it changes the air pressure inside the tube and lets the switch know when the water has reached a predetermined level. A stuck contact on the pressure switch can stop the advancement of the wash cycle and keep the water from draining. A few taps on the top of the switch with a screwdriver handle can release the contact and fix the problem causing the F2 error code.

Won't drain or spin


Hi jm irons - most washer will not spin as long as the water remains inside, first thing is to check why the drain pump has not operated, water levels are controlled by the pressure switch or laymans term water level control, when water drains it closes a built in switch and enables the spin cycle circuit and machine advances to next stage of program.

The door wont open . I have tried to put it on for a cycle and you can here the the water for around 5 seconds then it stops and does nothing.


Check and make sure your pump or filter is not clogged, then next I would suspect you have a faulty door lock mechanism
More common issues with the door lock.
Is water hooked up to the washer?

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?

If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?

If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?

If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!

Found water underneath washer, clothes seem to have more water in them, washer doesn't seem to be draining properly


Can be due to clogging in the drain pump/valve which is not draining off due to the dirt accumulation. remove and clean- back flush to see if this works.
Also make sure that the level of the washer is tilted to the drain side valve as no water must remain but drain in gravity. use a spirit level to set.

Lg wahser wm1832cw flashes oe on readout. nothing in drain


Hi,


If you are getting this code it is because your washing machine has tried for at least ten minutes to drain the water out of the machine. The most likely cause of this problem is that you have a plugged pump filter or you have something stuck in the pump filter.Make sure that you unplug your washing machine.To clean out the pump filter you must empty the washing machine water. The best way to do this is to manually drain the water into a low bucket or basin. Then lay a towel down to catch to remaining small amount of water. Remove the pump filter, clean out any debris, and wash out the filter. Then plug your washer back in and restart the washing machine.Check that your machine is properly leveled. A washer that is too far out of level may not drain properly. Make sure that you are level front to back as well as side to side.This solution will solve your problem


Thank You !!

OE code keeps flashing ; door remains locked


Hello, an OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confirm that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

Thanks

Laundry comes out very wet


Hello tcburns07,
If possible, can you cycle a very small load of wash ( perhaps a towel or two) on the lowest setting to validate that : the washer is spiining up to normal speeds while draining water and that the water being drained is complete? Chancves are you have a either a blocked filter that limits water from completely draining, something in the drain pump or a restriction in your drain system. You could also have a worn belt that drives the pump. The test I suggested will at least determine if your washer is capable of draining all of the water from even a small wash load. Try that and let me know the results.
Regards,
Rick
