It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

I have a maytag neptune washerModel no# MAH5500AWW not draining and spring real slow?


when it is not draining the first thing to do is to check the drain itself. locate the pump it will be on the bottom of washer, there will be a hose that runs from it. follow the hose and it connects to a cleanout u may have to disconnect the hose to make sure it is not blocked. check the discharged hose as well. if everything is clear then u my have a bad pump. when u turn on washer do u hear the pump come on to try to pump out water? the reason it is spinning slow is because there is still water in the tub.

Front Load Washer will not drain. Frigidaire Gallexy Washer Model # GLTF2940FS0. Get Error Code "E20".


This is an error code for a slow drain or no drain at all problem. It can be due to a clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked drain filter/coin trap, or a broken drain pump. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code. In addition, replace the drain pump after having found no problem with the drain hose, cleaned the filter, and checked the drain pump impeller but the drain pump just hums or whirs.

Long spin cycle of my Samsung WF8590NHM Front Load Washer is always interrupted and throws this flashing "5d" error code.


Hi.

The error code is not 5D but SD, which means slow drain detected.

Check drain hose. Check drain filter attached to the pump. Check pump itself and pressure switch.

Regards.

Water is not draining, drains slow


Long Drain

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later

the F/02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is

running. • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

Will not drain. it does'nt look like its spinning very fast.


The washing machine not draining water.This problem is related to few possibilities. 1) The drain pump is got loose to the drain hose. check the connection from drain hose to drain pump. 2) The drain is blocked by any thing.Like cloth or any thing like metallic nails or coils etc etc. 3) The drain hose is got blocked./The drain hose is not letting the water to enter the drain pump. In most of the cases the drain pump has to be removed and checked for any kind of blockages.Also if the machine not draining can effect the spin cycle.But other possibilities for no spin or slow spin are faulty or broken motor coupler or weak spin motor.The motor coupler and motor both can be possible,if the drain pump and drain hose both checked ok.This will clear the fault. ----------- Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks,.

Have you checked the drain pump reservoir? This is a common point where debris collects and causes slow drain and no drain issues with this washer. The following link provides guidance on how to check:

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

If you have checked the drain pump, have you checked ALL the drain lines? The drain line that leads from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the wash pump is another common area where items get stuck. Its also an area that most consumers forget to check. I have found small articles of clothing such as wash cloths, underwear and socks, stuck in this hose causing slow drain problems. NOTE: It is recommended that you use garment bags for small items).

If you verify everything and still have the "F02" Long Drain error, it is recommended by the manufacturer that you replace the drain pump. If anything has been in the drain pump for any length of time, it could potentially damage the pump impeller and/or motor. The pump may be running, but it may not be pumping.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if I can assist you further.
