You don't reveal full model number. It's not likely that a coin is blocking the water. The pump (part of the motor assembly) may be partially blocked inside or a garment (sock, u-shirt, etc.) may be blocking the water inlet to the pump. It's too early to remove the agitator.

    Sorry I originally had model number written down wrong. The number I just posted I got off the back of my machine. Thank you so much in advance for any advice you can give me. I love my machine and I'm just sick about it draining slow.

    I think you mean Wslp1100D0WW. Remove the panel and disconnect the 2 hoses going into and out of the pump. Blow with force thru both hoses to make sure they are clear (or pour water into the tub to check the 1 hose from the tub; use a bucket to collect the water. If clear, inspect/replace the pump. Go tohttp://lookup.bellparts.com/lookup/20420... for part numbers and drawings.

    Hi Mark, I just want to give you a heart felt "Thank you" for all of your advice. This is a little embarrassing but might help someone else so here I go. My son took the back off at the pump and found an underwire from one of my bras lodged inside the pump. He removed it and checked all the other hoses under there to make sure they were clear. He sealed the hose with high temperature glue and I waited the 24 hours for it to cure. I did a load and the washer seemed to be draining much faster than it was before. I watched it every time it went on drain cycle and noticed the spray was starting to spray off in all directions. I knew something had to be causing the spray to split and splatter everywhere so I watched real close and saw some lint kinda hanging from the spout. I pulled out a fair size chunk and noticed now the water was just split in two. I started to squeeze the top part of the hose around the clamp and then I felt inside the spout . I felt something dividing the passageway into two and knew something was lodged in there . I used a small end of a spoon and managed to hook something. When I pulled an old rusty paper clip covered in lint came out!!!!!! Gush !!!!!! Holy NIAGARA FALLS!!!! Nice straight water spout with good pressure behind it. I know I'll have to replace the pump probably sooner than I should because of all the trauma to it, but for now I am a happy girl. Thanks again. Tammy Sider

SOURCE: My GE front loading washer will not drain the water

Try cleaning the filter, too.  The bottom front panel on your washer should come off by removing 3 screws.  We found a bunch of junk (it was full of lint, change, and other gross stuff).  Make sure to check back up in the hose if you can, too.  Our filter was so full, the lint and junk was backing up into the hose.  That worked for us and saved us a service call.  Hope this helps.  There is another problem, similar to yours, posted on this website with a lot more information and a bunch of testimonials (mine included).  You might want to search for that one to get more info.

SOURCE: GE Profile Harmony Top Load Washer - Won't drain

After more thought, it dawned on me another possible reason. In my case, the washer is draining water, but it keeps cycling the pump on and off, thinking that the pump isn't working properly, and the washer doesn't go into its high-speed spin to eke the last bit of water out. It dawned on me that it could be that the pump is fine, but the sensor is lying, saying there is more water when there isn't.

I looked at the tube for the sensor, and noticed a small blockage of white soft stuff. I disconnected the sensor tube from the tub (in the back), managed to squeeze the blockage out, connected it back up, and now it all works fine (about 5 loads and I haven't seen the pump message)!

So if your pump is draining water successfully, but the washer keeps complaining and refuses to go into the high-speed spin, then perhaps this is your situation as well (or a bad sensor, etc.).

Note that I'm pretty sure the blockage is what ended up ruining my first pump. The blockage matches the color and consistency of the caulk/glue that was used to attach the sensor tube, so my suspicion is that too much was put on at the factory and ended up going into the tube, but not enough to cause problems initially. After several years of use and perhaps a bit of water mineral buildup, it finally became a full clog.

Finally, note that, as you may have guessed from the design of the machine, when you disconnect the hoses at the bottom, there's always a few cups or more of water in the two black hoses and the pump that it can't manage to push all the way to the drain.

SOURCE: GE washer GNSR2140A0WW wont spin/agitate but fills and drains

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!

Hi

Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while draining. The dishwasher is not draining properly. Please check for air gap on the dishwasher is not clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining properly and sometimes the drain flow is restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized (or stuck) drain pump. Keep handy large bowls and towels to soak the water out. Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to the dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections and switch it on. If the error still appears then turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs to cancel the error message. Switch the appliance off and then back on again. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Water is draining very slowly out of the washer and if it takes to long it gives a code of DR


Hi

It seems that something is stuck and you'll have to remove the agitator to clean it. I f this is an old style washer, then it should have a bolt under the cap that must be removed to remove the agitator, then grab hold of the agitator and lift up. If it's a not too old then the agitator just pulls out, remove cap, if no bolt, just grab hold and lift up hard...picture. You can also clean the drain hose as that might be clogged if the agitator is fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi... I had the same problem. Instead of trying to figure out the faucet/adapter issue (was too pissed off) :) I took my old washer hose and just used that. Connect the washer hose to your sink and the washer just like it would be if you used that adapter hose. You will want to make sure it is tighten good or it will leak a little...and make sure that the adapter hose end is in your sink because that is where the used water empties out from.
Hope this helps.

GE washing macine stops during the wash cycle


This is exactly what my machine was doing, as well. I fixed it by cleaning out the filter in front of the water pump.

Searching here, I found that you can remove the lower front panel (three screws along the bottom edge is all it takes) to get to the filter. With the panel removed, you'll see a round white plastic cover (about 3-4 inches diameter) that screws out. Get a bucket under the cover to catch the water that's in it (could be 2 quarts or more) and unscrew the cover.

The cover pulls out, revealing that is actually a screw-in plastic strainer. I found tons of coins, broken pens, paper clips, etc. in mine when I did this. A lot will be deep inside the black rubber hose that connects this filter housing to the washer drum. You can rake the stuff out with a bent wire clothes hanger. Shaking the black hose will help hurry the junk along and out of your machine. Screw the cover back on after the clean out and your machine should go back to normal.

Thinking about it, front loaders will have lots of small items flushed into the pump compared to top loaders. Coins you alway found in the bottom of the drum in a top loader, they all wind up in the filter of a front loader. And once it slow the drainage to a crawl the machine will shut down multiple times when it can't drain the water out completely, and it will never step up to it's max spin speed with all that water still in the drum.

F21 code on every load. cleaned out drain hose


"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases, this means you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

You may have something getting caught in the pump impeller and slowing it down. Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

NOTE: The "SUDS" error can also commonly occur with the F21 error code as this is can be generated when air is sensed in the drainage system.
If the door won't open it could be jammed due to the program being interrupted.

If you have questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My whirlpool front loader washer is about 7 years old and when I run it, it beeps and flashes F02. What does this mean and how do I fix it?


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases this means there is a clog in the drain pump and it needs to be cleaned. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

Water not draining from drawer


Could be the little non return valve mounted underneath the top drawer. Lie down on the floor under the top drawer, remove the main plastic pannel covering the bottom to expose the black drainage hose (you may need to cut away a cable tie). Remove the drainage hose from bottom of the drawer - at the start of the drainage hose there will be a small rubber type flap - if it looks broken or worn out, it will need replacing - call F & P for a replacement, approx $5 + postage for a pair (one for the top drawer and one for the bottom)
Hope this helps
