Good Morning Friend,

I see that your Frigidaire washer, model# FEX831CS, is not draining. Here are a couple of suggestions that you can try.

    1)Check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that the drain hose is only 6-8 inches down in the drain pipe. If the drain hose gets backed up with water this error can occur.

    2)Make sure that the actual drain pipe, where the drain hose goes into, is only a maximum height of 8 feet. If it is longer than 8 feet, you will need to cut some of the pipe off.

    3)Make sure that your homes drain pipes are not clogged. If they are, you will need to unclog them. Call a plumber if necessary.

    After checking the above suggestions, reset your washer by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. If you are still having trouble with your washer draining, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why your appliance will not drain. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best regards-

I have a Kenmore 80 series washer it will not stop filling with water so it wont go into agitate cycle, help


Has your drain for your washer backed up recently? Or is the drain hose from the washer sealed into the drain pipe, meaning that you can't just lift the hose out anymore? There needs to be air around the drain hose or it will cause the washer to allow water to be siphened threw the drain by not closing the filling valve. This can also happen if your drain is backed up. Rooter the drain out and make sure that the drain hose is not sealed up to the drain pipe and see if that fixes your problem.

I have A WhirlPool Cabrio.. when i start a load.. it flashes "FL' and beeps excessively.. how can i fix and prevent that?


Fl code indicates an overfill condition. If the washer is empty, then you likely have a problem with the water level pressure switch. If the washer is full of water and will not drain, you likely have a problem with the drain pump or the washer drain line.

If the washer is full of water, make sure that the washer drain is clear and working properly. Check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. If you find no problems with these issues, I recommend that you manually drain the washer using a wet/dry shop vacuum. Check the drain pump and connecting hoses for problems. You may need to replace the drain pump of water will drain out of the washer properly but the pump will not work properly. A clog in the check ball assembly at the bottom of the tub can also prevent the washer from draining properly.

SD code and washer leaking


Sd excessive suds are detected by the washer during the drain or spin phases of the cycle.
The washer will stop and fill with water and then wait for 5 minutes to allow the suds eliminated so that the washer cycle can continue, After the suds dissipate, you can normally drain the washer and spin out the clothes using a RINSE/DRAIN & SPIN cycle. Make sure that you are using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the appropriate amounts to prevent excessive suds in the washer. This should prevent the washer from going into this routine.
  1. Also check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.
you can clean with affresh or vingar..let me know..

You may have a plugged drain hose. Or possibly your household drains are running slowly. To check the hose, pull the washer out. Turn it off and unplug it. Disconnect the drain hose (the 2" black hose) and see if you can clear it of any clogs. You will need some towels and a container for catching any water.

Leave the washer unplugged for a time (don't get the plug wet) while you check other drains in the house, especially the garbage disposal and toilets.

Plug the washer back in and turn it on and try a cycle.

This is the most common problem for what is happening with your washer. If this does not fix your problem, you may need to call a serviceman, or if you do have slow drains elsewhere, a plumber.


Thank you for uisng fix ya! I would appreciate a rating on this solution.
