Drain Hose: What Kind do I Need?

My wife and I purchased a Whirlpool duet ht front loader. It was sold to us as a scratch and dent model. It did not come with a drain hose. Can we purchase a drain hose at a local home improvement store? The store has one on backorder for us, but they said that it would take several weeks to get it. Many Thanks, Gary Nebeker

    Great, our old machine died. So, we need the part right away. Lowe's or Home Depot sound like a good start. Will we need to purchase a model-specific hose, or are there universal hoses available that will work on a variety of machines?

Go to Sears Parts Direct on the internet, and order from there. Or find a different hardware store (Lowe's, Home Depot, Meijer). Anywhere that sells washing machines.

Depending on where you live, there may also be a Sears Parts depot that you can go to. You can find them on the Sears Parts Direct website.

    Well,

    You need to know what the connection point of the hose looks like, which direction it points, what diameter it is, and if it's just a straight smooth pipe or is it barbed (ridges around it), or threaded or what. It's most likely barbed.

    Make sure you get a hose that will not be kinked when you hook it to the pipe, which is why it's important to know which direction it points. The new hose will easily kink if not shaped properly to handle the pipe direction. The person at the hardware store should be able to offer advice. Whatever you do, don't let that hose kink or you'll never pump the water out!

F21 Error Code on Whirlpool Duet & Kenmore Elite Front Loader Washers


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “F21” error code.

“F21” 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 displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

  1. First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
  2. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
  3. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
  4. 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.

Duet Sport HT WFW8400TE Washer: Whirlpool Duet Sport HT front loader is stopping b...


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Unresponsive control panel- Whirlpool duet dryer 4 years old


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

I have a Whirlpool duet HT front loading automatic washer, it's not draining & last time it did this a repair man came and showed me how to get underneath and drain it, but I don't remember how


The following link explains how to access the drain pump on a Whirlpool Duet front loader to clean out the trap:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

If you are experiencing drainage issues and cleaning the pump does not work, you may have to replace the drain pump. You will usually experience an "F2", "SUD" or "F21" error code (depending on model number) for a drain blockage problem. Since this error code occurs when the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump motor or impeller becomes damaged, the pump will not pump at the required volume and the error code will continue to occur. Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.

NOTE: Make sure you also check the drain hose and the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the drain pump. Small articles of clothing can commonly get lodged in this area.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
