Question about Washing Machines
My Asko W6424 is not draining completely during the spin. The drainage pump seems to be working as it is being emptied, but it is not draining completely when spinning. I can hear the pump run and water is draining, the impeller is spinning and the coin trap is empty.

SOURCE: Water doesn't drain
you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Here is an extract of my guidance notes on checking filter and motor. Try the last paragraph in particular-
POWER OFF FIRST
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore HE3: error code 02
When the drain system is OK the problem is usually the pressure switch. Moreover the SUDS error points in direction of the switch. Detergent in excess may clog the pressure hose connected to the switch. The pressure sensor integrated with the switch will not work properly and you get the drain problem.
The pressure switch detects the water level and among other things determines when to start/stop the drain pump. The pressure switch looks like a plastic disk with 4 contacts (3 depending on model). The switch is connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. The part is located in the control panel.
The first maintenance consists in cleaning the hose attached to the switch that can be clogged with suds (detergent).
If that does not work and the drain system is OK, the switch is usually replaced, as the part is difficult to test. The switch can be tested reading impedance across its contacts with tub empty and full. The switch must close two of the 4 contacts depending on what condition is met. Test must be done with power off.
Before replacing the switch make sure that the drain hose height and settings are correct or the problem will be siphoning rather than a defective pressure switch. Clean the switch hose before replacing the part.
If the pressure switch and drain lines are OK the parts that may be responsible are the electronic control board or the drain pump itself.
Since there was a SUDS code the problem is likely the switch.
Here a service manual for Duet, which is the Whirlpool model corresponding to Kenmore HE3 (Whirlpool built your He3, Kenmore only put the name on it).
