    Water seems to be staying in the washer "somewhere", tub is dry and clothes are not wet ....we tried to drain it but nothing came out...inherited the machine as part of a home we bought in FLA, no info on it at all.



    We are not at the home everyday and don't think it's good to have water sitting in the machime for so long. This is not a new machime but it seems to work well...any ideas....thanks

Noises - the original pump was a 40 watt pump, it often made a "howling" like noise. Replace the pump...the newer 80 watt pump has been more reliable.
Not draining - Front load washers are very bad for getting "junk" into the pumps...buttons, nails, zippers, bra wires....remove power and the front panel to access the drain pump assembly.
Remove power first! The pump is very easy to remove, ( unlocks from the base ) take the pump apart and check for foreign objects inside the pump assy. The power wires pull off and matters not which way they go back on. Also check the hoses to and from the drain pump for any  foreign objects. The pump is usually at the back right side ( looking at the washer from the front ).

ERROR CODE E20 FIDGFIDAIRE (ATF7000EGO) FRONT LOAD WASHER


You are experiencing a water pump issue. . Check the drain hose for restrictions. Restriction, correct problem. No restriction, go to step (2). 2. Start the washer and check for 120VAC at the drain pump. Zero, replace the Main Control Board. 120VAC, remove the pump and check it for blockage. If blocked, remove the restriction, if not, replace the pump.

We just got a new lg tromm digital front load,washer the light after my first load is blinking OE, what does this mean and clothes are still wet


That's actually DE (Drain Error) and I would never expect that on a first load unless use washed a rubber backed rug, pillow, or other item which might have given off a lot of stuff that could block up the filter, preventing pump out. (washer will not spin if water is not pumped out) Check the filter, located behind the access door on the front left bottom corner of the washer after using the small hose there to drain the remaining water out of the machine. If there was no obstruction in the filter, check for electrical problem,.... wire not connected to pump, etc. Wm2077 is an older model already. If it is new, call for warranty service and give servicer provider a copy of your sales slip to file with warranty claim.

My Samsung WF218ANW/XAA front load washer will not drain & the display reads "nd". I have already drained the water through the front panel tube & have cleaned that filter, washer still...


lefever352, I am currently trying to solve this same issue on the identical model. I removed , cleaned, and re-assembled all the water tubes and the entire pump assembly. The pump works but for some reason it is not priming into the drain tube. The pump assembly appears to have a diaphram over the outlet opening and it it looks like this might be the problem. I am still hunting the solution, BUT so far the above actions have to resolve our issue. I hope perhaps Fixya can help.

Water will not drain, does not spin. It's not the timer, changed it already. I believe it is the agitator clutch?

My classixx has stopped spinning and draining water.I have already checked the pump.Its clear.


If it is not draining the water, then either the pump is faulty, or there is a blockage in the outlet hose from the pump, or possibly a blockage in the hose from the drum to the pump.

Kenmore HE2 does not drain after first load.


  1. Unplug the washer to completely disconnect electrical power.
  2. Remove the bottom front service panel.
  3. Carefully reach up through the bottom opening and pull the release tab on the bottom of the door lock assembly until it clicks. NOTE: Internal metal edges in the washer can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended for this procedure.
By pulling the manual release tab on the door lock assembly, you should be able to get the washer door open. After opening the door and removing the clothes, I recommend emptying any remaining water in the tub with a wet/dry vacuum (or bail it out). Since you already have the bottom front service panel off and the washer unplugged, you can arrange shallow pans and towels to catch any remaining water and pull the large item filter out of the drain pump assembly as shown in the second image below. You may find a clog in this area that is preventing your washer from draining properly. Clear any clog or debris from this area and reassemble the washer. Check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.

My front load Kenmore washer has a f03 code on the screen. It is not draining the water and it is not doing a max spin. What do you think I need to do?


F03 error code means that there is either fill problem, a drain problem or a water level pressure switch failure .

First ensure the machine is filling.
When the drain system is causing the F03 error do the following.

Ensure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged.

If the drain hose is OK check the drain pump.

Start unplugging washer from main and remove the service panel at the bottom.

Follow the instructions on manual to remove panel.

Access the water pump and remove the hoses, clear any blockage in there.

Use a container to collect the water, be prepared. If machine has lot of water inside, remove some water with a sponge before undoing the pump.

Water is not draining out


Check that the drain hose is not clogged.
Access to the drain pump and check the drain pump intake, that is probably filled with debris.
Ensure that the drain pump is working, the pump should be energized directly by a technician to test it.

If the drain pump is fine , and you already tested water level switch, then it is either a bad control board, or a lose contact on the drain pump wiring harness to control.
