Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

Lg model wm3987h machine will not drain after rinse cycle. I have checked be sure the drain line is not plugged, I have checked to be sure that the drain filter is not plugged. The pump sounds louder that it did when it was working fine, and it has very little pressure when it is running. Could the pump be plugged if so how do I get to it and if not how could I replace it?

SOURCE: Maytag Performa washer won't drain

there may be a object in one of the hoses going to and from the pump. be sure have you taken the front panel off yet??? If not it has two clips on the bottom on the two sides than the panels swings towards you to unhinge from top. The pump has a clear body and you can visually see an obstruction. Sometimes i find that a metal object coin, etc can actually chew the fins off the impeller. That would be the only reason for it not to pump anymore. Also release the tension on the belt. Maytag wants some slack for the motor to slide on the motor plate proper.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool front load washing machine model WFW8300SW00

Hay Crab.
what I have found is that the washer thinks it is not pumping out .. if your drain pump is clearly removing the all the water in a good time... then the problem is your pressure switch...it is telling the computer that it still has water in the machine...

replace the pressure switch and it will solve your f21 error.

It is a round unit on the right hand side on top...with a tube and wires going to it...let me know if it helps

Hi deppgirl,
I checked the lint filter at the front bottom left hand side and it was full of junk.  Once emptied it worked a treat.  Pull the flap down and turn the large knob anti-clockwise and pull to remove.  Good luck.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite HE3 F02 error

If you checked the drain pump reservoir and the problem still persists, you may have a pump with a damaged motor/impeller, or something lodged in one of the drain lines. In particular, the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump.

I recommend you remove the inlet hose, first and inspect for clogs. In is common for small garments to become lodged in this area and restrict water flow to the drain pump. Check the output drain line for obstructions as well.

It does not take much to damage this small drain pumps. The error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes. So...if the impeller or motor become damaged, and the pump does not pull water at the correct volume, you may still experience the drain error. In this case, you will have to replace the pump in order to get the error to clear. The following link explains how:

Replacements can be purchased at any of the following websites:

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

After completing the wash & rinse cycle the dishwasher won't drain


In my experience, in this case it is likely that your dishwasher is not draining at any time throughout the wash or rinse cycles. The overflow float is preventing your machine from overflowing.

Here are a few things to check:
  1. If this is a new install, or the disposal has just been replaced, make sure the plug in the disposal has been removed. The nipple where the drain line from your dishwasher attaches has a plug on the inner wall of the grind chamber from the factory.
  2. Listen to the sound of the drain motor by starting a cycle and then canceling after a few seconds. Make sure the drain pump is actually running and not just making a loud humming noise as if it is seized, or something is binding it.
  3. Finally, check your drain line from your dishwasher to your disposal (most common drain connection), or where ever your drain line connects. Slight kinks and sharp bends have a tendancy to collect debris and create a plug-up. If this is the case, simply take the drain line loose from the drain pump and from the disposal and take it an outside water faucet. Place the disposal end against the faucet and slowly turn on the water. It will usually blow the plug right out.

I have an LG washer/dryer combo wm3987h. I had the OE error which I followed instructions on how to fix now my machine comes on but it does nothing despite me picking a cycle. It does not wash, dry or...


OE = Drain error. Cause: not fully drained within 10 minutes
Check there isn't a kink in your drain hose, ensure the filter is clean, the drain hose can become clogged with sludge, sometimes a hot wash with 1/2 a cup of vinegar will remove this sludge.

Lg washing machine gets stuck on the rinse cycle and will not complete the cycle. have to restart on rinse and spin. It is a front load. don't remember the model number.


Check and make sure the washer is draining properly, there is a drain catch at the bottom front of machine, twist and remove cap and clean out any debris you find. Also check and make sure your getting enough cold water to the unit. Also make sure your using HE detergent....If that fails you may have a bad control board.

hi
  • If there is no water in the unit:
    1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3. Check inlet valve operation
  • If there is water in the unit:
    1. Check Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Check there is not a siphon problem
  • Check wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Check pressure switch operation
  • Check flow meter operation

Aeg 72630 update will not rinse during rinse cycle


If the drain lines were plugged, there may have been enough pressure on the pump to fault out. Make sure the sewer line is completely open, as well as the lines at the pump.
