I had same issue OE error on my LG Tromm washer and the service manual was exactly what I needed.  I drained and emptied the filter about a dozen times and could not get the error to go away. I did find some junk in the filter after each of the first few times. I even powered down twice for 30 minutes. I tried the spin/soil test mode to get the drain pump going and it would not work. I ended up pulling the machine apart. I followed the service manual and I checked the resistance (ohms) across the pump motor and it was OK (it is easy to do with a simple multi-tester).  I even tested it to make sure it was OK with 120V power and it was.  However, when I removed the pump from the housing I did find some junk, wood sticks, in with the pump impeller that got past the filter.  I wondered if that could be the issue. I took the opportunity, since I removed the pump, to completely clean out the pump housing and the drain pipe.  I blew through the pipe several times and put water through it.  Lots of stench in the drain line.  Bleach took care of it.
I was disappointed that the pump was not bad since that was an easy $50 fix.  The next thing in the service manual was to check the computer board and that is expensive and hard to get.  I decided to check to see I got lucky before I messed with the computer board.  I got lucky!!! The washer works like new.  My wife immediately noticed that the clothes are coming out less wet like they did when we first got the machine a year ago.  Must have been the sticks in with the impeller.
Three loads later we are OK.  Other than this we have been very happy with the machine.  GK 4/1/08

Clean pump light appearing


Needs to be serviced as the machine is stating. if you are not a tech "guru" I would call a tech. But if you feel you can handle it. I suggest you contact a local parts supply store and they can sell you a book that will show you how to unassailable and reassemble it with ease and you will save some $$$ fixing it yourself. As this is something a my young child could fix. Nothing feels better than to fix something all by ones self. :)

Error codes on Kenmore Elite washer


F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears. Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right. Press this button until no-spin lights. Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display. Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08. If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.


while F09 is the water pump. It usually means something is clogging it. Take the front cover off of the washer and the water pump is located right in the middle front. Unscrew the cover to the pump and make sure there is nothing clogging it.

Leapster won't turn on


Had the same problem. I could randomly make it turn on by some bazzarre combination of pushing buttons. Now won't do anything. Call Leapster 800 #, and thought I was getting a bunch of b.s. from a "tech" person, however IT IMMEDIATELY RESOLVED THIS PROBLEM. Remove the battery pack and batteries. Take a pencil eraser and rub/clean the contact point where each battery goes in on the tray (except the coil sides). Reinstall the batt's back in the trey. Use the eraser to do the same thing to the outside contact points on the outside edge of the tray as well as on the Leapster itself where the tray goes. Finally reinstall the the battery tray, and BINGO ! Crazy....I would have lost a bet on this "fix".

Most likely the power supply, or the back-plane lamps, or the back-plane supply, or a defect on one of the processor boards is loading the supply too much, or any combinations of these are defective. You will have to have a source to try the boards to fix the monitor. I would suggest to find the authorized service rep for your monitor. They will have to service it for you. If the monitor is out of warranty, the fix will not be cheap!

Kenmore Elite Front Load Washer...F02 and SUD not draining!!!!


Probably something caught in pump. Remove lower panel if this one has it and you will see the pump. Loosen the round cover in middle to access clean-out.
