Lg intellowasher wd-8015c won't drain?

The washing machine won't drain the water. I've put it on a few different washes now and it still won't drain. I've opened the p-trap at the bottom on the front of the machine and drained the water (dirty) and also 2 coins came out. I have put it on a wash since this happened to see if it will drain but nothing is happening? Can I fix this myself or do I have to get someone in? Thanks

Most probably pump is blocked or the hose is blocked. Put drain hose lower or the blades are broken. It is not that hard to check if you know where the pump is and you can take it off without requiring special tools.

SOURCE: bosch washing machine won't drain and the door won't open.

Sounds like you have a blocked pump.To empty the machine manually lower the drain hose into a bowl or bucket.Once emptied the door should open.On most modern machines there will be a filter behind the kick plate at bottom front of machine, Check this for any foreign objects then try a spin before putting on again.If problem persists come for further options.

AEG Lavamat 16830 won't drain


The simplest way is to lay the washing machine on the right side so that you filter closer to the floor and from bottom of the washing machine is accessible drain pump. It can be fixed by three screws
or just turn pump counter clockwise and pull out.

Washing machine not draining


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
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.

Remove power for a while and allow the machine to reset. Now it is important that the drain pump be removed and checked to see if there is any dirt trapped and causing the pump to overload. Also check the inlet flow , if low it must be removed and backflushed to improve the flow. The door swithch must be checked as also the water level switch. Make sure that after removing the panel that the connections to the program module is intact. Finally check the motor drive , check for free movement of the agitator, if not check this assembly , the belt, bearings and the shaft.

I had a cockroach scare and closed off the opening where the drain pipe of my washing machine drains into another pipe. Would this cause the washing machine to flood water out the bottom of the washing...


Unfortunately a lot of us have the straight pipe for a drain that you describe. With no trap it is a source of entry for bugs from the sewer and vent pipe. I have the drain from my washer in the pipe with the rest of the opening covered over with duct tape, As long as you don't block or kink the drain pipe you should have no problem closing the area around the drain pipe. I've been running mine that way for over 20 years now! Thanks for using fixya!

My Miele Touchtronic W1119 shows the error message Drain/Intake Fault. The intake and filters are fine. What's going on?There is no water standing in the drum. How can I reset this?


Hello Buvamo,
You may want to check the water valve and make sure it is all the way up where the intake line is.
The other area to check for water not draining is the lint trap. While the intake/drain fault is on the door will not open for the lint trap.
There is a release lever at the bottom of the machine (Orange in color) that is below and behind the trap door. Just pull down on the lever and that will open the trap door. You may want to put a towel under there as it will leak once the door is opened. inspect and clean the trap and try running cycle again

My Asko 6461 washing machine - F3 code


F3 problem, I had the issue on model W6461, however, judging by the amount of F3 issues posted this could work on other ASKO models If the coin trap in the drain is clear of debris, try this. Stages as follows:
1) Open drain pump door (bottom left of machine).
2) Remove black pipe and drain residual water.
3) Unscrew coin trap and remove, use a container to hold the water.
4) Leave the container underneath and make sure you have some towels ready (I didn't at the time)
5) Where the washing machine drain hose connects to the outlet in the wall or U bend connector remove this and expose the end.
6) Blow into the drain hose as hard as possible......hopefully the blockage will clear back through the coin trap.
7) Pour some water into the open end and blow this back through the drain as well.

Result:
A large lump of sludge, three of my 5 year olds small counter coins and about a litre of water (all over the floor, don't forget the towels!)

Just ran the machine now and fault cleared.


Good luck
