SOURCE: Whirlpool washer f30 code

Hi there.
We just bought a brand new washer and had the same thing just happen to us. Found out after taking the lid off that the top had pinched down on the mechanism that turns and allows the water to flow in. We were stacking out laundry baskets on top of the washer which did this. After taking the top lid off and touch it it began to move and is working properly now.
Have you tried this?
Hope it helps someone out there in the future if not you now.

SOURCE: Loud grinding motor protesting humming w/no spinning or agitating

The drum/agitator bearings are bad I believe, or the gearbox has been damaged. This is an expensive repair. I would strongly consider buying a new washer. This is a great time to buy appliances since the stores are really competing, and the prices are at their lowest.

SOURCE: Asko Washer/Dryer (WCAM 1812); Dryer not working.

Update: The dry cycle is now working! Apparently the automatic overload/shut off on the heating element got tripped. We had a technician out this morning. He unplugged the machine, removed the top of the unit, and simply pushed a little red/orange button that was on top of the heating element. When we plugged it back in the heating element worked again. The technician was able to troubleshoot this by checking the amps while running the dry cycle. But the proof was really when we did a load and the machine heated up (just like it used to) during the dry cycle. This was actually a relatively simply fix - though could be dangerous as you have to open up the electrical area. The reset button is rather inconspicuous and located on top of the heating element, which is long (runs front to back in the center part of the top of the machine - which you can get to by removing the lid/top outer housing) and silver - wrapped in insulation. It's pretty obvious. The button is in a little metal fixture on top of the heating element. The technician told us that the rest can get tripped when the unit overheats. (We think this happened when the laundry tub overfilled and the hose was totally submerged - the machine was working overtime to pump out the water.) The technician also warned that this can happen if the machine gets turned off suddenly mid-cycle - especially during the drying cycle. He said that the heating element gets so hot, it needs to have a gentle cool down period, which is marked on the dryer dial for the last 20 minutes of the cycle. I hope this helps others!

SOURCE: washer drum doesn't spin, no draining of liquid

If you have got rid of all the water, and it still will not spin, then the odds are it is the brushes in the motor that need replacing.
Quite a common problem

Frigidaire washer leaking from underneath


Hello greschina - You would need to clean out the coin or filter trap to see if debris has clogged the drain lines.

1. Unplug the washer

2. Pull the washer out to tilt it back so you can reach the screws below the front panel and remove it. (You will need something to catch the water once the hose is removed from the bottom of washer).

3. Loosen the bolt with the sliver clamp on the bottom of the washer. The water will begin to come out while your loosening the clamp. (Do not remove any GREEN clamps).

4. Once the water is out, you can stick your hand inside the hose to clean it out.

Coins in drain pump on washing machine. Coins can be seen through plastic drum of washer, how do i get them out/


Without your model number this is a stab in the dark.. for a front loading HE machine. Look at the lower panel of the washer. It should have 2 tabs that you can relase with a putty or butter knife. Open the panel... then locate the white or black flat faced filter. Rotate the filter 90 Deg CCW.... knowing full well this is going to make a water mess. Be prepaired.... cake pan works great! Then pull the filter out and remove the coins. Make sure your reach back inside with your fingers to ensure there is noting on the pump impeller blades. Once clean... reinstall the filter by pressing it straight in.. then thruning it 90 deg clockwise to LOCK it in place. Leak test!!!!!! Close panel and use normally.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Washer does not drain, at that point in the cycle the machine makes a clicking noise.


You may have a blocked or jammed drain pump filter.
Check the drain filter as described in the manual. Access is via the small hatch at floor level. Make sure the machine has as little water as possible, because it will empty via the pump when you check the filter. Lean the machine back against the wall to help contain what water is in the machine.
Unscrew the pump filter, check and clean. Also check that the impeller is not jammed by a coin or a hairclip or similar. (That could be the clicking noise.) Replace filter and test. Sometimes the impeller comes off the pumpshaft. In this case the pump motor would need to be replaced by a serviceman...
Good luck....Nomess

What does problem f2 mean


Hello,

the drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

Take care.

Water outlet fault. The door wouldn't open, so I drained the unit and then the door opened. I cleaned some coins out of filter and tried again. Same fault, water outlet fault.


Hello and welcome to Fixya. With the Asko washer it is possible to have some coins and debris up in the hose which goes from the tub to the pump as well as downstream of the pump in the drain hose, it is a pretty small diameter and quarters, nickles, dimes and pennies can block it up entirely. It will require a very thorough check. You may in fact have a damaged pump as well. If you watch the pump impeller it should spin freely, if it just sits there with the impeller moving slightly back and forth it is faulty. In any event you'll need to either phone in a pro or remove the pump and hoses ( which are held by one-time clamps ) which will require installing new hose clamps and removing the lower service/access panel. Depending on the actual model of Asko washer you have the process of doing this will vary. Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance. Thanks for visitng fixya, please rate this info accordingly or please let me know how I can help additionally. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

A coin fell into the basket and rolled into the gap at the edge of the wash plate. I took the plate out but the coin was not there. It must have fallen into the larger slots beneath the wash plates. If I...


The coin will not drain out nor be fed back into the tub by the recirculation pump but it will block the filter or eventually block the impeller of the drain pump and break it. You'll then experience a draining problem and need to replace the drain pump.

What you have to do is remove the basket to get the coin out then take the opportunity to clean the filter vanes. The coin is most probably still in the filter.

Tape the lid to the top of the washer then disconnect power to the washer.

The top of the washer is held to the front of the cabinet by two locks located about six-and-a-half inches away from the outer edges of the washer. Use a putty knife blade or similar tool to press and unlock the top locks.

Insert the blade of a putty knife into the seam between the top of the washer and the cabinet at the given distance from the outer edges of the washer. Press the locks then lift the top of the washer.

Remove the impeller (wash plate) cap by inserting the blade of a flat-bladed screwdriver or similar tool into the slot in the impeller cap, and then pry the cap off.

Remove the 7/16" hex-head bolt from the impeller (wash plate), then lift and remove the impeller from the basket.

Pull the recirculation hose off the tub ring by compressing the spring clamp holding it in place. Remove the tub ring by prying and unsnapping its tabs from the tub.

Lift the basket out of the washer to access and clean the filter. Remove the two screws holding the filter to the tub. Take the filter off and clean it.

Reinstall the filter, the basket, and the wash plate. Secure the wash plate with the 7/16" hex-head bolt then snap the impeller cap in.

Put the tub ring in place aligning the tabs then snap the tabs back into position. Reinsert the recirculation hose into the tub ring and secure it with the spring clamp. Push and lock down the top of the washer to the cabinet.


In case the coin is no longer in the tub or in the filter, turn off the water supply to the washer. Disconnect the fill hoses from the rear the washer and remove the end of the drain hose from the laundry tub or stand pipe.

Place padding or cushion on the floor fronting the washer, and then carefully lay the washer on its front panel to access the drain pump at the bottom of the washer.

With the washer facing down and you facing its bottom, the drain pump is on the left while on the right is the recirculation pump. You can actually see the drain hose connected to the drain pump.

Using a pair of pliers, compress the spring clamps holding the drain pump inlet and outlet hoses. Move the clamps away from the pump then remove the hoses.

Remove the three 5/16" hex-head drain pump mounting screws. Open the wire cover on the pump then disconnect the wires from the terminals of the pump, and then remove the pump from the washer.

Check the pump impeller for any debris and clean it. Reinstall the pump after cleaning and secure it with the three 5/16" mounting screws. Reinsert the inlet and outlet hoses then secure it with the spring clamps. Make sure the tab on the outlet hose connector fits into the slot in the outlet hose.

Reconnect the wires to the pump terminals then close the wire cover.

My Asko 6022 front load washer makes a horrible grinding sound when the water exits the drum during the washing cycle. Any idea what might be wrong? Can I fix this myself or is a repairman in order?


Figured this one out on my own. Had to check compartment in bottom left of machine that catches any small items that get loose in the wash (coins, paperclips, etc). We had several items in there that were blocking the impeller from spinning correctly. See manual for instructions on opening this compartment.

Frigidaire affinity not draining


The problem is that on the infeed side of the pump there is a catch/filter in the Hose/boot that will catch lint and coins (LOTS OF COINS) and will not allow the water to flow through to the pump. This will stop the cycle and prevent the tub from spinning and the basin will not drain.
to fix this turn your washer over and access the pump from the bottom. the boot can be disconnected from the wash basin with a phillips screwdriver, reach in the boot and pull out the plastic catch and empty the debri, reinstall the the catch after cleaning it and put the boot back on. Set your machine back upright and conncet all the hoses and plug it in. It should work. This is a easy job but it will take an hour or so.
