If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pump It pumps, but the water returns It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Reads F 02 when it gets to spin cycle


Hello, welcome to FixYa. Based on your post I understand you have a F02 error problem with a Maytag washer

Likely the most common error code associated with frontload washers is due to drain blockages, oversudsing etc. These are no exception.

The F2 error code explained below which can also manifest as F21, sd, or a Suds error applies to all washers manufactured by Whirlpool which include, many Kenmore, Maytag, and of course Whirlpool.

The error codes mentioned typically associated with an obstructed drain pump, pump filter or the back-flow ball in the sump bellows.


These can also result from too much detergent or wrong detergent type. Only use "HE" detergent in frontload washers, they will have the symbol shown here.
macmarkus_7.jpg

Now for the remedy or investigation....

**Unplug the washer from the wall before performing any service suggested here at FixYa, unless otherwise stated...safety first**

Here's what to do and check to resolve it...

1) Remove the service panel at the bottom of your washer, i.e.
macmarkus_8.jpg

2) Once removed you'll be greeted by the pump with the removable filter...this is where most obstructions occur, i.e. (some differences may be obvious but same procedure apply)
macmarkus_9.jpg

If the washer hasn't drained and still has items in it or water, it may be a good time to have some towels close by or empty the machine with a wet-dry shop vac...unless you're fortunate to be close to a floor drain.

3) Turn the removable filter counter-clockwise to remove it and inspect it and clean it out. Make a good thorough inspection inside the pump as well not just the removable filter.
macmarkus_10.jpg

4) Re-insert the filter and before placing the panel back run a test rinse/drain cycle to inspect for leaks and to verify the unit drains and spins now.


Now if all appears OK after your efforts, well your efforts paid off...pat yourself on the back. You just saved yourself potentially a couple hundred bucks !

**NOTE: if this still fails to remedy the error code or if it returns immediately during the next drain you may require a pump or you'll need to check the hose/rubber bellows from pump to tub...back-flow ball...as I alluded to previously for other obstructions ).

To inspect the back-flow ball...there is a large clamp which secures it to the tub, but if you remove it to clean out all the dirt built up inside, make sure you get it good and secure when putting it back.**
macmarkus_11.jpg

Once the clamp is pulled back/loose you can pull the bellows from the tub to inspect for obstructions or "gunk" built up causing the ball to stick. i.e.
macmarkus_12.jpg

**If a pump is required, you can check with your specific model number for available pumps at "searspartsdirect.com" or "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.**

Have an f21 code everything shuts dow


"F21" is a Drain Problem error. This can occur if the drain pump or hoses have become clogged, the drain hose is kinked, or if the drain pump is too long. If you haven't had any problems until now, I would bet you have an obstruction in your drain pump. The check the pump, follow these steps:

  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 start a normal wash cycle.
  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 cycle by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump should energize and the washer will begin to drain.
  12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall panel and tighten screws.
If you check the pump and the problem still persists, replace the drain pump. You can find the necessary parts for your washer at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your complete model number (located around the door opening) and follow the links. If the pump is not available there, I would also recommend repairclinic.com and pcappliancerepair.com. I hope you find this information helpful.

Hi there, our dishwasher hasn't drained. we are assuming that it may have something to do with the pump. Is there anyway that we can see if it's the pump before we call someone in to look at it? Or...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Without your model number this is a very GENERIC response. With a MAKE & Model number I could pass exact steps as to how to go about troubleshooting. Having said that here goes. You did not mention if the drain pump was running and it was not draining so for the mopment I have to assume the motor is running but the unit is not draining. Do the following steps:
1. Remove the drain hse from the sink connection and check the drain port for a clog. This is usually a garbage disposal connection but it can be a direct connection. Re-connect the drain hose after checking / clearing the drain port.
2. If you have an Air-Gap on the back of your sink or near the dishwasher, lift the cover up and off of the Air-Gap. In the very top of the Air-Gap there is a plastic threaded nut you must unscrew to gain access to the the drain plumbing in the top of the Air Gap. NOTE the installed position of the cap as it will only install one way. Remove any debris in this area. Use a wire coat hanger and a flashlight if necessary to clean the port that exits to the sink connection. The open plastic tube you will see is the connetion from the dishwasher. This should also be clear. Reassemble the Air-Gap in the same manner as dis-assembly. Reconnect any hoses if you removed any to clear drain ports.
3. Make sure power to the dishwasher is secured and remove the lower kick panel. Remove the drain hose from the pump housing and check for debris in the pump and pump port. Clear out any debris in this area.
4. Here is where not having the model number comes into focus. Without that model number the procedures for checking the tub sump and impeller are drastically different. The bottom line is the lower wash arm and support are removed.. any sump covers are removed and the screens / fins in the sump area are to be cleared of debris. Dome units the impeller is in the sump... other units the impeller is in the motor pump assembly that has a macerator before the pump inlet. If the inlet to the pump / motor is clogged it must be cleared. On units that have the motor pump assembly directly in the bottom of the unit there can be 2 levels of water flow. Upper for dishwashing and lower for draining. All passages in this area must be cleared.

Steps 1 and 2 above fix about 80% of the drainage problems. Test for drain function after steps one and two.

Kelly

Leaking Washing machine


I would recommend you inspect the washer with the exterior cover removed, so you can actually see where the leak may be coming from. The following link explains how to replace a drain pump on a Kenmore. I submit this to you, because it not only explains how to remove the exterior case of the washer, but in the event that the pump is leaking, it gives you the necessary steps required to install a new one. The pumps are sealed units and not servicebale. If they leak, they need to be replaced:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397094-replacing_water_pump

When you remove the exterior case, the washer will not operate without the lid switch by-passed. You will need to do this in order to fill the wash tub to see where the leak may be coming from. To by-pass the switch, you will need to unplug the washer and jumper the two black wires together at the lid switch connector on the timer. Use aligator clips on the connector pins to do this. With the lid switch by-passed, you can plug the washer back in and start a cycle.

Look for signs of leaking around the drain pump (located in the front under the wash tub) and all hoses. Also inspect the entire perimeter of the wash tub for any possible leaks. Generally, if you have a leak in the front of the washer, its a drain pump or drain hose connection. If you have a leak under the tub you may have a worn tub seal or cracked tub.

I hope you find this information helpful. Hopefully, you will not need any repair parts. If you have any questions, please let me know.

PS Use caution when operating the washer with the case removed. There are exposed electrical components and moving parts.
