That might be a problem if there is water build up on the bottom but if its shutting off I dont think it will do that unless it is a new model. You could have a component going out if its an older model. If the entire washer is going out it might be your dishwashers electrical circuitry. Hope this has helped, good luck

Why is it displaying f2 code and will not drain?


The F2 fault code indicates a problem with the washer's drain system, and you must troubleshoot the problem to determine how to fix the washer and clear the code.
Clogged Drain Hose The drain hose on a Kenmore washer should remain free of obstructions so the water drains from the washtub. the drain hose behind the washer can impede the flow of water from the washer. A drain hose inserted more than 4 1/2 inches into a floor or wall standpipe drain system can cause the water to siphon back into the washtub.
Stuck Water-Level Pressure Switch Your Kenmore washer uses a water-level pressure switch in the control panel to detect the level of water inside the washtub. You can find the pressure switch behind the control panel in top-load models or attached to the inside wall of front-load models. The round switch is approximately 3 inches in diameter with a clear or black plastic tube connected to the bottom or side of the switch. The tube runs from the pressure switch to the exterior washtub. As the water fills the washtub, it changes the air pressure inside the tube and lets the switch know when the water has reached a predetermined level. A stuck contact on the pressure switch can stop the advancement of the wash cycle and keep the water from draining. A few taps on the top of the switch with a screwdriver handle can release the contact and fix the problem causing the F2 error code.

My Front Load Affinity washer shuts off after a few minutes


Good Afternoon Lori - Thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. If you noticed a humming noise, then once again it could either be a clogged drainage hose or pump that needs to be cleaned, or it could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Trying to find pump.


Hi - I understand you will like to know where to find pump and check for clogs. Try the following steps below and hope it is helpful:

To completely clear any clogs in the washing machine drain you will use a pipe auger (snake). Start at the roof plumbing vent and drop cable to roughly 10 or 15 feet past the actual drain. If there is a clog present, the snake will bring up a chunk of debris. Remove it from the top of the vent and discard.

The drain hose is visible toward the bottom of this washing machine. It is held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws.

Remove the drain hose from the back of the washing machine. This is normally held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws. When a drain backup occurs, pieces of debris can lodge in the hose, causing clogs and odors.

Soak the hose in a bucket of warm bleach water.

Soak the drain hose in a bucket of warm water mixed with 1 cup of bleach. Look to see if the line is free of obstructions. Run a small length of clothes hanger through the hose to clear any hard debris.

Reattach drain hose and connect to drain pipe.

Reattach the drain hose using a screwdriver or pliers. Insert the hose into the washing machine drain. Be sure it is all the way into the drain opening.

Run the washer through a full cycle with 2 cups of bleach added.

Cycle the washer with warm water and 2 cups of bleach. The bleach will help remove any odor-causing particles in the machine and drain hose. Running the washing machine through a cycle will help flush away any remnants of the drain pipe clog.

Water will not drain, makes a noise when filling, pump does not seem to be froze up.


Three things to inspect are:
  1. Clogged drain hose - cause water to back up to the pump and shut down
  2. Clogged drain tube - usually occurs when the drain hose is attached to a drain tube that empties out into the homes sewer system. Just like a clogged drain, water will back up all the way through the drain hose into the pump and shut down.
  3. Clogged or bad drain pump - Many times, debris left in pockets will work it's way into the drain pump. Over time, enough debris (paper, coins etc) could lodge itself into the pump. When the machine tries to empty or spin out, the pump becomes overwhelmed and shuts down. Sometimes, you may even see a puddle of water appear under the washer due to a clogged pump. This can also happen if the pump itself is worn out and no longer working up to specifications.
Luckily, your drain pump is easily accessible. Placing a towel or blanket down, unplug the machine, disconnect the fill and drain hoses and gently turn the washer forward onto the towel or blanket. Only tools needed are a pair of pliers and a phillip head screwdriver. After removing the drain hose and the screw holding the pump in place, it should easily be removed so you can inspect for debris (a very common problem with F&P washers.
Best of luck with your repair.

I have a Kenmore N2. What would make my front load washer fill back up with some water after the drain and spin cycle is complete?? IF I let the washer go until it's done and go downstairs to take out,...


first, run a rinse,drain & spin cycle. after it finishes filling, shut the water supply (taps) off. If water enters the washer after the drain, it has to be sifoning back in from the DRAIN hose. Check to see if the drain hose is not going up above the washer more than a few inches

Water leaking from bottom, lots of suds.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. This may happen due one or more than one of these issues with your washer--
Probably there is something(coins, socks, dirt, debris, etc) stuck inside the drain filter of your washer. You'll need to check the drain filter. To access the drain filter. To check the drain pump follow these steps:





Unplug the washer to completely disconnect electrical power.Remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below.


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.


This issue can also be due to clogged drain pump or drain filter, due to which the hose have developed leak. This will cause suds


Please rate the solution if you find it useful and helpful.


Thanks

Drain problems.


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Won't shut off machine turns off after a few seconds


You may have a burnt motor. This is usually caused by a clog in the pump. Sometimes small items such as socks find its way to the pump. It could also be the timer itself. If there is a burning smell when that happend it is probably the motor.

There is water in built in dishwasher when cycle is done.when you open door it runs out and rest remains in bottom of dish washer about an inch and a half of water.


The drain hose is supposed to go from the garbage disposal to a high point under the sink in back to keep the water from gravity draining into the dishwasher when it shuts off. If you look you will see that the hose is laying on the bottom of the sink cabinet. Get a hook and wire it up so you're not washing dishes with water from the disposer. Be sure to run the disposer. if it is clogged with food the dishwasher will not drain, water will back up and drain back into the dishwasher. Also make sure that the pipe exiting the disposer isn't clogged and draining slowly. hhe best solution is to have an air gap that mounts on the sink. It goes between the washer and the disposer to keep this from happening.

Frigidaire front load washer - e10 and water hose shaking


E10 code indicates there is no water supply.This can be confirmed by :
  1. Shut off the faucet to stop water supply to the washer.
  2. Disconnect and pulling the supply hose off the washer to confirm the E10Code
    • Opening the faucet and watch for running water



E10 also means that your cold water is coming in too slow, disconnect the cold water hose and check to see if the screen on your washing machine is clogged. If the screen is clean and the hose has good pressure then you will need to replace the water valve on your machine--- this is the piece that the hoses directly connect to.
