Sounds like you may have a small article of clothing between the inner perforated drum and the outer drum. If your proficient in taking something like this apart, you can fish between the two drums with a piece of coat hanger wire with a small hook bent on one end. To access, it usually means getting the top panel off to get access to the 2 drums... reply if you need help..

Maytag Centennial Top Load Washer drains as it fills.


The water is probably siphoning out of the tub. Your drain pipe is either too low or the drain hose is down too far into the pipe. Take the drain hose out of the pipe and lift it high. I'll bet your problem goes away

My LG intellowasher 7,5kg WD- 8016c is flashing the letters OE Can you please tell me what this means




An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes. However, the OE error code does not always mean that the washer requires a service call. If periodic maintenance has not been performed on the washer, there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.

Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a LEVEL on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confrim that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.


If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.
NOTE: Perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

Wash cycle timing is way off.


Well, 1-1/2 hrs is normal for your washer. All front load washers take a long time. They wash a lot better than top loaders....

 If it takes more time for drain or something , than it might be a concern............


However, to be on a safer side :) Lets troubleshoot
I would start by removing the hose off the pump that goes to the back wall of the washer and blow through it to make sure there are no obstructions. Also check the other hose from the tub to the pump. If there is, find and clear it. If not, read on. We need to make sure the transmission is working properly before going any further. When operating properly, this washer should drain all excess water (full load setting) in less than 180 seconds. That is the maximum neutral drain time for this particular washer. If you start the machine on a normal cycle with a 10 minute minimum agitate time, the transmission should not spin when it begins to drain. It is very important that you not disrupt the machine during this test, so use a small screwdriver to "trick" the lid switch, so you can have the lid open to see if it spins. If it doesn't spin while draining, then the transmission is okay. If it does begin spinning and draining at the same time, immediately reset for another 10 minutes of agitate and try again. You may have to run this test 1-5 times for an accurate neutral drain test. The most common failure of these transmissions is neutral drain failure. As I stated before, if the unit is spinning and draining at the same time, it won't be able to get rid of the water in time because the resistance of the tub trying to spin will slow down the motor which, in turn, slows down the pump. If the transmission doesn't spin while draining, see how long it takes to expell all the water; it should be less than 180 seconds. If it takes longer than that, there is some kind of restriction in the drain system. Anything from a kinked hose to a sock in the hose, or even a restricted house drain when the washer drain hose is sealed to the standpipe. If your washer drains to a floor drain, there should also be a siphon break in the drain line that may be bad or plugged. Let me know if you have further questions.


Thanks.

Washer won't drain


right take your drain hose from under the sink and place into a bucket low to the ground if water starts to drain out then do this until nothing else comes out the door will open after a short time in which you can get your clothes out if it doesnt than you will need to take the washer outside and disconnect the drain hose from your pump you need to take it out because once you full off the hose from the pump you will not be able to stop the flow of water and there will be alot if water comes out then your pump is faulty

you have a blockage somewhere probably. if the drain hose plumbed in under the sink, check there is no blockage in this area. also check the drain hose for blockages. if all clear, the fault is probably the drain pump itself
