Clogged drain(?) LG WM2233H*

I believe I have a clogged drain on my WM2233H. I discivered water on the floor today after running a load. After some checking of all the usual suspects - the hose connections - I discovered water in the base section in the front left - just below the drain pump filter. I opened the drain plug to let out any water, which was barely a trickle, and then checked the drain pump filter and that was empty. From the was the water drained our of the drain plug, I am thinking there is something blocking that I cannot see. Any advice?

Check on the back of the unit just below where the 2 water lines come in. This is the location of the tub air vent. If you see evidence that water has trickled out of this vent then you probably had an oversudsing issue.

There is a mushroom valve inside the machine that seals off this vent when the machine is spinning out. Often, if oversudsing has occurred this mushroom valve will get soap residue on the shaft and keep it from shutting all the way. When water leaks out this vent on the back it tends to make its way under the machine and pools up right in front of the drain filter housing.

If this is your case, just make sure you are using an HE (high efficiency) detergent as it is low sudsing. Also make sure to only use 2-3 tablespoons per load.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution or ask additional questions if needed.

LG front load washing machine WM2233H Error code is FE


I found this information on the internet. I hope that it helps.
" Getting fe code on lg washer.
"This means that the washer is overflowing. This is a built in fault that turns on the drain pump so that the water doesn't get so high that it gets into the floor. If water is continually flowing into the washer you will get this problem. If this is the case the water valve is most likely the problem. To confirm unplug the washer and if the water doesn't stop flowing into the washer the water valve is the problem.

Thank you,
Shawn"

I have a GHW9100LQ front loading Whirlpool Duet washer that is 7 years old. It has recently been displaying error code F02. Today water leaked onto my floor. I read the suggestions on cleaning the drain...


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

My front loading GE washer WSSH300 will not drain.


Don't know if this will help or not, but your owners manual is available at http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher
Water won’t drain
Drain hose is kinked or •
Straighten drain hose and make sure washer is not improperly connected sitting on it. Top of drain outlet should be less than 8 ft. (2.5 m)
above floor. Household drain may • Check household plumbing. You may need to call be clogged a plumber. Plumbing this washer directly to a pipe is hard on the motor. Usually the drain hose elbow is inserted in a stand pipe, meaning the washer would drain water on the floor is the stand pipe is clogged.
Several items can cause the lack of draining.
If you can get to the drain hose, try lowering to a point that it will drain into a bucket. If it drains the system is not clogged. If you advance the timer and the washer drains this maybe the culprit. The motor can overheat and shut off. I would advance the timer to spin and listen for a hum in the motor and then quiet, a sign that the motor has overheated. If the water drains it sounds like the timer is at fault.
I would first make sure the drain hose is properly installed and not kinked somewhere. In earlier GE's the water drain pump could clog, your manual doesn't indicate that as a defect. Regardless timer, motor and pump are in the cycle to empty the washer water.

Water Leak


Yes all you have to do is take off the front cover of the washer or the back cover, it it usually the front on top load washers. I believe your water pump may be cracked, but am not sure. What you need to do is remove the cover and start your washer and let it fill. Get a flashlight and pay close attention to where the water is leaking from. Then all you have to do is replace the part and your done. Any part dealing with water leaking will not be hard to change.

Will not Drain


when the machine is full of water detach the waste pipe from wherever it is connected i.e under the sink or some other type of drainage ..

Lay the pipe on the floor (ground level ) if the water comes out then their is no blockage and you need a new drain pump.

easy to change with the slightest of mechanical knowlegde
