The drain pump may be bound by a foreign object preventing it from removing the water. I recommend removing it from the washer and making sure the impeller is not bound.

Why does it still display on LED screen out of order code F21 I have tried unplugging and waiting 1 minutes and plug in same problem. Could it be a flow sensor or meter inside?

my book tells me that fault code specifically says drain time is taking to long , this is an indication of either a clogged drain hose (or vent) or in some cases can be a worn down pump impeller (on heavy use machines) or in extreme cases your idea could be correct and the water level sensor is not showing a m/t basket so it gives this fault , a sure divider to this way of thinking is to watch machine (no soap or clothes) for moment it gets that fault , if theres water in drum then sensor is right and u need to took better at pump and drain hoses , if its M/T then sensor is wrong

My LG front loader will not drain. I took the drain hose off, no clogs. Cleaned the filter, still won't drain. ???

if you can hear a humming noise when put on drain, this means the drain pump moter is ok but might have an object stuck around the blades! to check this you have to take off the drain moter which is behind the filter which in most models the base is open, so you have to take plug off from mains and lift the machine up and get to it from the bottom! it has 3 screws on it and its the moter which has the drain hose attached near it not the one without as most LGs have two moters one for drain one for circulation! take this moter out and check whats around it! it could be even string of some sort! make sure you put the screws in the exact place otherwise wrong hole would make it leak! take care! my advise would be to call local engineer which wont cost more than 40 to 50 pounds to fix! make sure you dont get ripped off by them saying the pump moter has gone as these pump moters very very rarely goes! im an engineer and i do this every day so i know! good luck!

Won't drain

the problem is either your pump or your hoses. this an easy fix. all you need is a screwdriver and a bucket to catch water. 1st unplug the machine and remove the drain hose from the drain. then try to drain the water from the washer by plugging it back in and setting the washer to drain. if no water comes out of your drain hose then you know your plumbing is ok. next put the drain hose back in the drain and take the cabinet of your washer. you will see your pump with 2 hoses connecting to it. one hose connects to the basket and the other to the drain. disconnect the hose coming from the basket and if water comes out then you know the basket is not blocked with any article of clothing. if both check out ok your problem would be the pump. write down the model and serial number to your washer and buy a pump. they are only about 15.00. remove the old and install the new. having a repairman like me install would cost about 150.00, so i advise you to do it yourself or have a friend help.

Kenmore Elite flashing codes.

ob means out of balance and ld means lid not closed. so i would guess that you have a washer that is not draining or just needs the clothes moved around.
if you have a plugged pump it will do the same thing. make sure the pump will drain properly and then try it again. if it still goes out then try it with no clothes. that way you know its not hte clothes causing the problem.
recheck the pump and hoses. be sure it will drain the full tub or it wont work right.

E20 error when starting tumble dry cycle

E20 on your machine means some sort of Drain problem. If it actually goes through the Spin cycle o.k. then there is most likely some water still not drained out at the time of the tumble dry. Check the drain to make sure it isn't clogged. also the drain hose.

Washer will not leave the drain cycle

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display then
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

It's because of a Long Drain condition. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off the code is flashed.
But Note: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error is usually displayed, then 4 minutes later the error code is displayed.
