Hi,
Remove the cover of the washer so you can see the internal workings of the machine.
All washers drain from the large hose coming out of the bottom of the tank. The hose goes directly to the pump input and then goes output into drain hose. Remove the clamp holding the drain hose on the input side of the pump and pull the hose off. Visually inspect inside of pump for any foreign matter.

Got F21 on the washer...what do I do?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F21 error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dishwasher will not drain out. Is it a clogged drain, bad pump or something else. Model # DU1015XTXS2, Serial # F05301668 and the Type # 575-1. Where is the drain plug located? I have not used this...


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi, my washing machine is LENCO LWM-2651BJ my problem on my machine is when he reach to drain it go off and he cant drain the water, i bought this machine in israel and i send it to philippines and i dont...


Possible that the drain valve/pump is faulty.Now this can be failure of the pump/valve or the pump is clogged with dirt and so does not work. You need to first check the voltages on the drain pump at the time of drain, if not present the program controller is faulty but if present the valve/pump is faulty. remove from the drain outlet hose fittings , remove the pump and clean or back-flush with jet water, test outside for the pump to work freely , if not the pump is faulty and must be replaced.

Kenmore 80 series Model # 110.23832100\r\nthe washer fills up agitates, when finished washing it stops pauses a while then starts to spin, you can hear the water going out put it is like it can't pick up...


Hi

If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump, drain filter or a kinked drain hose. Clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. Also check the connection to the drain pump and make sure wiring is fine. Check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Got an OE error, now it will not finish rinse and spin, sounds like it is grinding in the spin cycle and the timer is stopped at 27 minutes remaining. What is wrong?


The problem is in the drain system as what error code OE stands for.The grinding noise is coming from the drain pump. Loose change, hair pins and the likes can get into the pump filter and sometimes into the pump impeller causing a grinding noise during the spin cycle because the pump works while the machine is spinning. The pump impeller may also be broken causing the grinding noise.

Disconnect power then open the filter door on the bottom left of the cabinet.

Remove the drain plug and drain the water out completely into a shallow basin or the likes. Once drained, lay a piece of towel under the filter then turn the filter knob counterclockwise and remove it. Clean the filter and reach in the pump impeller to check it if blocked or broken. If cleaning the filter does not solve the problem, you need to access the drain pump assembly and check the pump particularly the impeller thoroughly.

Machine won't rinse stops at 21. took hose off pump and seems to work ,will drain if lower hose.will then stop at 11 min mark please help lost manual.


send the model number next time.the pump is blocked.if your model has the removable filter in the middle of it you have to remove it and clean it out.with a shop vac vac out all the water in the tub,then turn the filter counter clockwise and when the water starts coming out slowly vac it up until all the water is drained,remove the filter and clean it out.add some water and set it to drain and see if the pump works,if it does then you're all set,if it doesn't remove the filter again and make sure nothing is stuck in the pump,if it's clear you probably damaged the impeelar on the pump and need a new pump but they are pretty hard to brake,if it doesn't have the filter pull off the hose and vac out the pump then stick your finger in there or a screw driver and make sure the pump is clear,also check the hose to make sure that's clear,if it doesn't drain most likely you'll have to replace the pump.if you need more help let me know and send the model number,open the door and look around the opening of the dryer not on the door and you'll see the model number

Really bad sound, pump dry or something


hi,
if some shuttered/debris **** inside of the pump it stuck on your impeller balde inside pump,its not easy to open pump assembly,
To reach the water pump, remove the sprayer arm and screen and then the pump housing. Remove the bolt, and the pump components can be disassembled.

On some dishwashers, the lower impeller serves as a drain pump. This type of system usually has a reversible motor; machines with nonreversible motors have drain valves, as detailed previously. If your machine possesses this impeller pump system, and the water will not drain from the dishwasher, clean the lower pump impeller. This may solve the problem. Otherwise, call a professional service person.have a nice day rate my solution if your satisfied,thanks

Dryer stops and won't start again


hi
Step 1: Remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on.

Step 2: Remove the sprayer arm, the screen, the pump housing, a bolt, the upper impeller, the food disposer blade, a spacer plate, the impeller hood, a flat plate, an O-ring, and the lower impeller. Lay the parts out in order as you disassemble them so that you'll be able to reassemble them properly.

Step 3: Clean the parts thoroughly with a mild detergent solution. If any parts are worn, replace them with new ones made for the dishwasher.

Step 4: Replace any seals, such as the O-ring or other washers, with new ones.

Step 5: Reassemble the pump, keeping the parts in order.

To reach the water pump, remove the sprayer arm and screen and then the pump housing. Remove the bolt, and the pump components can be disassembled.

On some dishwashers, the lower impeller serves as a drain pump. This type of system usually has a reversible motor; machines with nonreversible motors have drain valves, as detailed previously.
