Why will my dishwasher not drain ? Motor runs, fill is good washes good.

sounds like the pump has a blockage in the machine or if there is separate pump to drain as opposed to the one that pressurizes and washes your dishes it may be faulty some machines ( not sure about this one ) have two a high pressure pump for washing and a low pressure one for emptying . Some machines have a system that switches the pump from wash to outlet and this is a usually a relay to an electr'o mechanical tap ( it directs water to jets or out to drain ) all of these systems are controlled by the Programmer and should this go faulty many problems can occur. I suggest you seek help from your local repairman, this type of fault will probably be very familiar to him

Spins but will not drain

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer, model# FAFW4011L, spinning but 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-

Why does my washer do every thing but spin dry could a pressure swicth be bad on door?

Good Afternoon Dale,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000ES, not spinning your clothes dry. First, if the drum is not spinning at all, I suggest resetting your appliance by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. Once power is restored run a spin only cycle. If it starts spinning and the clothes are still coming out damp, try one of the following:

    1)Try changing the spin speed to a higher speed.
    2)Make sure that you have not overloaded your washer.
    3)Make sure that the wash load is not too small. If you are only washing a couple of items, try adding 1 or 2 similar items to balance the load.
    4)Try rearranging the load to allow proper spinning.
    5)Check the drain hose for any kinks. If it is kinked, straighten it.
    If you are still having trouble with your washer spin drying, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

    -Best Regards-

Hi Kimberly, this is AP. Thank you for your post.

I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire front load washer, model LTF2940FE, not draining or spinning. There are a few possibilities that could be causing this to happen.

Overuse of detergent can result in oversudsing then restricting the tub from turning properly and not spinning out. You can attempt running a cold water rinse cycle to get rid of suds if this is case.

Another possibility could be that the drain hose is too long or restricted. If the drain pump makes a humming noise there could be a restriction in the drain line. Confirm that your standpipe (located in the rear of the washer) height is not higher than 96" and not below 24". Lastly, if the drain pump does not make a humming noise once the washer is in the spin cycle a defective timer or drain pump could be the cause of your washer not draining or spinning

If you can determine that oversudsing, a too long or clogged drain hose is not the root of the problem I would recommend contacting an authorized technician. Contacting an authorized technician can ensure no troubleshooting step has been missed. Parts can be costly and if the problem is precisely diagnosed, it can save you a lot of time and funds. I have provided a link below that will assist you in locating and authorized technician in your area if needed. I hope this information proves helpful for you.

The whirlpool duet is one of the machines that have a main computer control that operate and monitor the functions of the machine,

This control is usually mounted behind the front panel,sometimes at the back or to the side, it also has a speed control board that is mounted on the bottom usually at the right side.

Whenever a problem accur there is a fault code displayed on the machine, there is a technician sheet with the fault codes on the machine, the technician can use this guide to go directly to the problem,

This f02 code mean there is a problem with the drain, there is a drain filter that sometimes get clogged with lint and other things,

Removing the kick plate and removing the drain access on the pump will reveal the drain filter, use a small bucket, and towels to catch the water that will be in the pump, after cleaning and re assemble the washing machine should work ok.

Does it wash ....I assume it does because you didnt say so. Just not spinning could mean
1.....the water has not drained away
check the drain pump for a blockage or burn out
2.....water drained out but machine sensing an unbalanced load
take out all the load and check if it spins with no load.If so the unbalance mechanism may need professional ajustments.
3.....programmer fault
call for a technician
4.....An item of clothing has become jammed between the outer and inned bowls.
Cal for a technician to remove the inner bowl to clear the problem.
Good luck.

Spin cycle starts, speeds up, then stops spinning

This fault often occurs when something (like a small coin or a paper tissue) has blocked the drain pump!
The only way to fix this would be to get a service engineer to remove the pump and check for a blockage, unless of course you are an experienced electrician or technician and don't mind doing it yourself.
