Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.

SOURCE: pump makes noise and water runs out of bottom of machine error ob

HI. 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.

A broken impeller will wobble inside the pump housing, causing loud noises during operation. This is a strong indicator of pump failure. This will, also, cause leakage as well. the integrity of the pump housing will be compromised, leading to this leakage.

SOURCE: check hose error on electrolux wave touch washing machine

I'm sure nojallo1 has already fixed his but I just ran into the same problem and didn't find anything in my searches for a solution. The problem I had was the test cycle wasn't long enough to get hot water through my water lines so it could verify the hot and cold hoses were in the proper places. Solution: Turn the hot water on in all the sinks in your house until they have hot water running through them. This will prime your hot water line so it is full of hot water instead of cold water. Then run the install cycle again and it should be fine.

SOURCE: my washing machine won't drain. It will either

You probably need a pump or to clear the pump or drain hose just past the pump.

To access this you need to peel back the front emblem on the top of the front panel, there is a screw in the center take it out pull forward on the top and raise it, then remove the front panel (will see three screws), tip back and take the bottom panel off, pump is on bottom back right

ld is long drain, to my knowledge the pump is only sold as a assembly with the motor, which makes it a fairly expensive part, would pull the pump and see if anything is stuck in it first(have some towels and a pan when you do this)And unplug it.

How to fix a errow ob on maytag washing machine


OB is an out of balance load error, try re-distributing the clothing and see if it helps, also make sure the machine is level, if this doesn't help there may be a fault with the out of balance switch or lever.

There is water leaking out of a piece of plastic in the back of the washing machine it will not go any further than 23 minutes we keep getting the message ld and ob


The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control.
One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.

The OB error code is short for out of balance. There are two fixes that you can try: One is to move the clothing around in the tub. or Two the machine isn't level and is causing it to falsely error as out of balance.

OB MEANS OFF BALANCE if the motor controller detects an unrecoverable off-blance condition, the machine controller will shut down and display ob. the lid switch must be opened at least once before restarting the cycle if this condition occurs. opening the lid will allow you to view and redistribute the load. press stop/cancel to clear the display. hope this helps.
