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.

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?

Asko 620 washer won't drain well with heavy load


Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

Belt, Water Pump If the washer won't drain the pump belt might have broken or might have worn out. Check the belt and replace if it shows signs of excessive wear.

Clogged Pump or Hose If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Drive Belt If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all.

Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Drain Hose If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions.

Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out.

Washer won't drain


the drain hose is on the back. it's generally the biggest hose on a washing machine and in most cases black. it could be kinked or clogged. once you locate the hose it's held on with a clamp. undo the clamp and it pulls right off. if no clog or kink there follow the hose to the drain usually on the wall and look there. I doubt it would be or else you would have water all over the floor so my guess is it's not even leaving the washing machine. Also something to keep in mind is that it could be the pump that draws the water out.

Where do I find the MCU on my Kenmore h2plus washer?


  • 1 Check for any error codes in the Estimated Time Remaining display. The code "F20" indicates a water inlet problem. Press the Stop button twice to end the cycle and check that the faucets are turned on fully. Take a look at the inlet hoses. Close the valves and unscrew them. Look for any clogging on the screen and clear it.

  • 2 "F21" indicates a draining problem. Again, press the Stop button twice and take a look at the drain hose. Make sure it's not kinked, frozen or clogged.
  • 3 "SD" on the display indicates the machine has gone into its Suds Routine. The Suds Routine removes excess suds so that the garments rinse properly. It's not a problem, but can be an indication you've used a non-high-efficiency powder. Just let the SD routine complete and the draining will continue.

  • 4 Make sure the washer is level if it gets noisy or vibrates too much. Use the leveling feet to adjust the level. They screw and unscrew for adjustment. Make sure the shipping bolts were removed from the back of the machine if the machine gets too noisy. See the "Removing Transport System" section in the instruction manual.
  • 5 Check that you are using HE detergent if you spot leaks. Check that the fill hoses are tight and that the drain hose is secured to the drain pipe. Check that the drain isn't clogged.
  • 6 Make sure the load is balanced if the washer won't drain or spin--or if water remains in the washer. Redistribute the load.
  • Buy Custom Car parts.

    Usually when you have a washer that will not drain, first check if the drain hose is kinked or too high above the washer (8 ft is the limit of the washer pump). Next check if there is a blockage in your drain (often a stand pipe) or if the air can't get into the stand pipe. The final thing to check is for foreign objects in the pump to drain hose area that block the drain. (This requires getting into the pump and disconnecting the hose. Keep a bucket ready to catch the water that will pour out of the washer.)

    GE has the manuals for many of their appliances on their support site: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Enter the model number and click submit. The direct link to the manual for the WSXH208V1WW is http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90256.pdf .

    I hope this helps.

    (at least my washer won't spin if the water can't pump out. On a few washers (non-high efficiency) the solenoid has failed to open for the pump to drain the water.)

    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.

    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.
