My Washer will not drain after the normal cycle. I have confirmed the hose is not kinked and is less that 6 feet from the floor. At the end of a cycle the process stops and I am left with a washer full of water.

SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin

this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

My F09 and my E01 codes keep coming on in mid cycle and shutting down the cycle


F09/E01 are related codes.

LONG DRAIN: If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes without reaching reset level in pressure sensor, the valves are turned off and the drain pump will stop running. NOTE: Suds can cause delays in draining. Washer drains for 4 minutes, pauses 5 minutes, then tries again for 4 additional minutes of draining. F9E1 will display if washer does not drain. (Normal drain takes less than 2 minutes)

Possible Causes:
Verify that the drain hose is not blocked or kinked.
Make sure drain hose is not sealed into drain pipe.
Make sure the drain hose height does not exceed 96" (2.4 m).
Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
Check connections from tub to air trap, air trap to pressure hose, and pressure hose to pressure sensor.
See TEST #8 (Drain Pump) on page 19. Is pressure hose pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?Is pressure hose pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?Is pressure hose pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?

Washer does not drain, how do i fix it?


Good Morning Friend,

I see that your Frigidaire washer, model# FEX831CS, is not draining. Here are a couple of suggestions that you can try.

    1)Check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that the drain hose is only 6-8 inches down in the drain pipe. If the drain hose gets backed up with water this error can occur.

    2)Make sure that the actual drain pipe, where the drain hose goes into, is only a maximum height of 8 feet. If it is longer than 8 feet, you will need to cut some of the pipe off.

    3)Make sure that your homes drain pipes are not clogged. If they are, you will need to unclog them. Call a plumber if necessary.

    After checking the above suggestions, reset your washer by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. If you are still having trouble with your washer draining, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why your appliance will not drain. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best regards-

Kitchenaid dishwasher wont drain


1
Allow the current cycle to complete. Draining will occur at the end of the cycle.
2
Close and latch the door. The dishwasher will not drain if the door is not properly secured.
Press the "Cancel/Drain" button on the dishwasher to start a two-minute drain cycle.
4
Remove the knockout plug in the disposer outlet of the garbage disposal if the dishwasher drains into the disposal. Turn off the water supply and remove the drain hose from the disposal. Place the tip of a screwdriver on the plug and tap it lightly with a hammer to remove it. Replace the drain hose and turn the water supply on.
Clogged Drain
5
Run the garbage disposal to empty it and clear the drain if the dishwasher drains into the disposal.
6
Remove the cover on the air gap on the sink or countertop. Turn the plastic cap counterclockwise to remove it. Remove soil from the inside of the air gap. Replace the plastic cap and cover.
7
Check the sink. Dishwashers connected to a sink will not drain if the sink drain is clogged. Unclog the sink. Contact a plumber, if needed.
Issues With the Drain Hose
8
Check to see if there is a loop in the drain hose. The loop cannot be more than 20 inches above the floor. Disconnect the hose and loop it just above the floor. Reconnect the drain hose.
9
Remove kinks in the drain hose. Always use the new drain hose included with the dishwasher. Do not reuse old hoses.
10
Check the length of the drain hose. The hose should be less than 12 feet long. Replace with a shorter hose, if needed.

MY WASHER WON`T DRAIN


  • Wait to see if the water will drain on its own since there may be delays of up to three minutes between cycles.

  • Unplug the washing machine to avoid risk of electric shock.

  • Confirm that the drain hose is not "kinked," or trying to drain from a height of more than 8 feet from the floor.

  • Remove the front service panel at the bottom of the washing machine by unscrewing the three small screws using a screwdriver.

  • Drain the tub by opening the drain plug, which is located under the washer door adjacent to the pump. Use a bucket or large plastic bag to contain the water.

  • Clean any lint, coins, pens, screws, clothing or other items out of the drain.

  • Blow into the drain hose to determine if there is anything clogging it.

  • Feel the pump. If it is hot, it may also be clogged. Remove the pump, open the tension clips and remove any debris from inside the pump.

  • Reassemble the pump. You may need to replace the factory-supplied tension clips with metal screw clamps.

    Ld signal won't drain


    For the LD error please check for the following:


    • Check for kinked or clogged Drain Hose: Remove any obstructions in the drain hose / stand pipe / utility sink. Straighten the hose to remove any kinks. If the washer is unable to drain due to a kinked or restricted drain hose, the washer may not spin.
    • Check for Standpipe higher than 8 feet above the floor:The pump is not powerful enough to pump water to heights greater than 8ft. The water will remain in the basket.
    • Check for excessive suds in the washer: Drain pumps cannot drain suds out of the washer.
    To clear the suds condition: Check the drain hose and make sure the hose is not plugged or kinked Press pause/cancel twice to clear the display Run the machine through a Rinse/Spin cycle using cold water, then a Normal cycle using cold water.

    Note: Do NOT add any additional detergent. This will remove much of the remaining detergent held in the fabric. This step may have to be repeated to remove all the detergent.

This will remove much of the remaining detergent held in the fabric. This step may have to be repeated to remove all the detergent. If the appliance does not accept inputs from the control panel, follow the Hard Reset steps below to reset the control:
    • Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
    • Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
    • Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
    • Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.
    Note: If the Hard Reset does not work, there may be an internal failure with the appliance, that requires service.The SD error code is caused by using the wrong detergent or excessive amounts of detergent.
    To correct the issue: Make sure to use HE detergent. Note: Using Non - HE Detergent will cause oversudsing and can damage the washer. Do not use too much detergent.
    Note: If using HE 2x - 5x concentrate detergent, reduce the amount being used. The washer will try to run a mini-clean out cycle using cold water and a 5 minute pause to clear the suds. If this cycle does not clear the display and complete the cycle the clothing may need to be rinsed by hand and then rewashed without detergent.
    I have included a list of all the error codes and what they indicate below this includes the F50 error code. I recommend scheduling a service repair so a technician can properly diagnose and repair your washe

    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.

    Washer will not drain on regular cycle


    The problem is certainly related to drain hose and or outlet connection.
    Make sure it is not trapped or kinked behind the washer.
    Changing the position of the washer could esily have caused the hose to twist and restrict the outflow of water.
    Plz rate my solution.
    Thanks,
