Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Maytag 2000 front load washer still not draining after clearing the coin trap. What else can I do? How can I tell if the drain pump needs replacing?

I'm in a rental unit, landlord won't fix washer. I've only run about 6 loads - worked fine previously. Also getting Sd error, along with F9 E1. Pulled some coins and nails from the trap, but the problem persists.

Some coins or nails could be in the pump impeller stopping it from turning or the pump may have failed
if the machine belongs to the landlord , he has a responsibility to repair /replace the machine
If you do something and it has to be repaired , he will claim that the problem is your fault and will want you to replace it at your expense

It is not likely the drain pump is the problem, it more likely the circuit board that controls the cycles is defective.

HE-2 error what is it mean


Hi, on what I will assume is either a Kenmore or Maytag/Whirlpool washer, you have a drain fault,
To fix, you need to remove the lower panel on the front of the machine. Unplug the washer, pull away from the wall and tilt it backwards to the front of the washer is 4-5 inches up, and take out the 3 screws holding the panel on. Once removed you will see a drain pump. Get a bucket ready. On the side or front of the pump is a removable coin trap. Turn the trap handle counter clockwise to unlock and remove. Get your bucket under the opening as much water will come out. Check the coin trap for debris, coins, socks etc. If you find the trap is full of stuff, cleaning it out shoud solve the issue. IF is does not you may have a failed drain pump.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump If the washer won't drain the pump belt might have broken or might have worn out. Check the belt and replace if it shows signs of excessive wear.

Drain Pump If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

Clogged Pump or Hose If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Drive Belt If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all.

Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Drain Hose If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions.

Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out.

Will not empty of water


If it's a front load washer the coin trap may be clogged up with a sock I have found dollar bills, baby socks,bra wires, you name it in them.It could also be a door switch.If it does not drain or spin then I would check the door switch.Coin trap is usually the problem with a front load washer.
If a top load then either drain pump or clogged line I have found garments in the drain pump but it is rare.Check to make sure the pump is getting electricity if not a direct drive pump.

Won't drain


Check your drain hoses and drain pump. You'll also need to tilt the unit backwards and access the drain pump and clear out the coin trap.

When washer turns on there is a horrible buzzing sound, e 20 error message was on before


This is a blocked drain error code (E20) which can be due to a clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked drain filter/coin trap, or a broken drain pump. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code. In addition, replace the drain pump after having found no problem with the drain hose, cleaned the filter, and checked the drain pump impeller but the drain pump just hums, buzzes or whirs.

LG Wash-Dry WD14700RD pump or solenoid noise


this is indicative of a bad impeller in the drain pump motor, it will most likely need replaced.

Make sure you check the drain filter for any loose coins or articles that may have been trapped and hitting against the drain pump impeller. If it is clear then the motor is indeed bad. Hope this helps, please rate my solution.
