Romove the drain hose from the machine. Take it outside and use a garden water hose to clean it out.

SOURCE: bosch frontload washer will not drain

Hello Mamma5, It sounds like the drain pump is either seized or jammed. The drain pump has an anti jam device in it. Since you have figured out how to get into the drain pump, try turning the inpeller in the back. It will be a little hard to turn as the magnets in the motor will fight you on this. Look close in case there is anykind of thread wrapped around the inpeller. If so, then you can free the pump. If you cannot free it to run, advise the repairman what you found so he can bring a drain pump with him.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer will not drain - F-21 error

Perfect! Yes, they aer 1/4" 6pt screws. I didn't have to lift my washer, but the previous tech had put in 1 screw crooked, so that was FUN! I had cut out an opening on an old cracked tote and was able to hold all the water as long as I transferred some to a bunch of tupperware. Make sure you line up the upper mark on the white drain plug before putting back in. The tote was getting overloaded and I didn't notice the alignment marks until after having some water overflow. Just a heads-up if anyone has an emergency and HAS to get the plug back in in a hurry.

I found:
Wife's Victoria's Secret panties
2 dimes
4 pennies
some legos
a metal nut
pencil eraser

SOURCE: F02 Error on Maytag Epic.

I just wanted to confirm stopgo's solution. A few notes/elaborations:

  1. Open the front door of the washer, and run your hand behind the big, gray rubber gasket. You might feel/see small items stuck there.
  2. If you kneel in front of the washer and look along the very bottom edge, you'll see 3 screws in a row. They are of the "torx" type. Unscrew them and then jiggle out the bottom panel. Inside you'll see a large plastic (off-white color) drain, and you can unscrew the 3-inch diameter cap off it and pull it out. The backside of the cap is a filter. Clear it out and put it back in. (We found a baby sock there).
Note also that when you pull out the bottom panel and look inside the cavity of the machine, there is a special manual for service technicians, stuck on the inside wall. I pulled that out -- there were some interesting/helpful information on that sheet telling you how to troubleshoot problems, including checking the drain filter.

Funny that the instructions for checking the drain filter cannot be accessed until you open the bottom panel to check the drain filter!

SOURCE: Door won't open on Samsung washer

This has happened to me twice. Both times I found the drain pump seized up with
1st time) The right rim from a pair of reading glasses
2nd time) A plastic toothpick
Both times the object was in the discharge port of the pump. You can see this by lifting the check valve with the pump removed. Removing the pump is simple. Unplug the washer. You have to remove the drain line from where its attached to the rear of the machine (one screw) to remove the rear access panel which slides into upper and lower slots. You will see the pump with an inlet and discharge line attached. The lines have simple squeeze clamps. When you remove the lines, you will drain the wash basin so have towels and a squeegie handy. Remove both lines and wait until the basin drains. When it stops draining remove the pumps electrical connector by squeezing the release catch on it while pulling it. The connector can only go on one way. Remove the 3 hold-down bolts on the pump baseplate. Remove the pump and lift open the discharge check valve and you'll find something there I guarantee it. Remove with needle nose pliers and re-assemble in reverse order.
This is actually a good design because the computer protects the pump by sensing a higher than normal current draw when foreign debris gets jammed in it. It will trigger the ND (No Drain) code and sometimes lock the door. Always check this first before you call the expensive repair man. If its not a jammed pump it will most likely be the control panel/processor. Good luck and always clean out pockets before loading the washer to prevent this,

Error meaasage 0E Drain Error what to do?


This OE error or fault code indicates that the machine is not draining properly. Check to be sure the drain hose isn't clogged or kinked. If that checks out, check to see if the drain pump or drain pump filter are clogged. Finally, if the drain line is clear and the pump seems to be clear, you may need to replace the drain pump assembly.

WHAT DOES IT NEED DONE WHEN ERROR MESSAGE SAYS 0E


An OE error code indicates that the washer was unable to drain the water. The main causes for this error code are a kinked drain hose, a clogged drain pump filter, or a problem with the drain pump itself.

Error code 0E on LG WM1290 FHB ?


The error code 0E stands for obstruction error, meaning that the drain line is obstructed. This is why the spin fails as all the water is not being drained. Check the drain hose for kinks and clean the drain filter. If they are not the problem, there could still be an obstruction in the drain hose in or about the drain pump.

F 20 displaying on front load machine


The F20 error deals with the water coming into the tub. The F20 code indicates the control didn't see any water enter the tub.
You say water comes in and fills up to the bottom of the door before the error appears.
There is a flow meter that tells the control water is coming into the washer. If the flow meter is faulty the error usually happens quickly.
There is a pressure switch and the clear plastic hose may be kinked or even have a small hole in it. One thing to try is to remove the top of the washer and then pull the hose off the pressure switch and blow through it towards the tub to check for obstructions in the air dome.
The drain hose should not be stuck down the standpipe to far. If the drain hose is stuck down the standpipe a siphon action ca occur. This means the water would fill and drain at the same time which might lead to the F20 error.
Check the drain line first and then remove the top of the washer to access the pressure switch and pressure hose. With the washer empty remove the hose from the pressure switch located on the right side of the washer and blow through it to clear any debris blocking the pressure hose or air trap.
Post the results along with your complete model number.

Intermittant 0E error


I believe the OE error is generated if it takes too long for the washing machine to drain. If the drain is blocked or the pump is is not functioning well, the error will show up intermittently. I believe we experienced a similar error a couple of years back. After verifying the drain was clear, I replaced the drain motor, I believe the washing machine was about 5 years old at that time.

I have an lg wd12650tp and it has stopped full of water with the code OE showing. I've tried emptying the filter at the front but it still wont drain? Any suggestions? btw apparently the code means...


Hi.

Error 0E is drain error.

Access the drain pump, located behind the service door at the base of the machine, in the front side, right below the washer door.

Disconnect power before starting the procedure.

Open the door and undo the pump attachment. Have a container ready to collect a good amount of water.

If that does not fix the problem, then there may be a fault. Further blockage, faulty pressure switch and faulty drain pump are the faults that can trigger error code 0E.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models using the link below:

Hi my washing mashine wont spin, and code 0E comes up on sreen and start button starts flashing PLEASE HELP THANKS


That is actually DE. (Drain Error) Open the small access door at the bottom left corner of the front panel. Use the small hose to drain the remaining water out of machine. Unscrew the big knob and pull it out to clean out filter. (If filter was clear, replace pump motor.)

De error code on samsung topo loader stops working


0E - OVER-FLOW ERROR

Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.

Thank you for your advice. I have a kenmore he2 plus washer


Try unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the CCU. In some cases this will clear any minor glitches that can be generating erroneous error codes. If it does not clear, you more than likely have a component failure.

Now...it does not take much to damage these drain pumps. If anything has been left in the pump reservoir for a significant period of time, the drain pump motor and/or impeller may have been damaged. The result: a drain pump that "appears" to be running, but may not actually be pumping anything. I would recommend replacing the pump if it is not draining any longer.

Another thing to try before we assume the pump is dead is to check the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump. I have found small items such as socks and wash cloths that have managed to work their way into this hose and clog the line. If you have already checked this area, then proceed with a pump replacement.

Although a CCU could possibly cause erroneous error codes, the likelihood that it is causing this error is not common. I doubt that you have a CCU problem, and it is a more expensive option than the drain pump.

I hope this answers your questions. Let me know if you require further assistance.
