My Kenmore front loader stops spinning and shuts off with 3 minutes to go leaving the clothes too damp for the dryer. I can hear water draining out before it stops. Any suggestions?


There might be something stuck in the pump.( Sock, ragg, etcetera.)
If there is a filter on this machine it could be plugged.
If it's not either of those then it's probably a electrical panel thats went bad.
Good luck.

My front loader washer had a sock inside the hose and the water backed up , and water was everywhere. is this common


It happens with many brands. Coins are commonly found in the pump traps in most washers. I don't know if LG washers are more prone to eating socks, but if you try Google with 'lg washer sock', you will see that you are definitely not alone.

I hope it doesn't happen again.

Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.

Hello there:
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

I don't quite understand exactly what you mean in this but my guess is that something is stuck in your pump if water is going everywhere. With front load washers you have to make sure that you remove everything from your pockets and in between each load make sure you run your hand between the front door boot. (That's the black rubber thing that is between the basket and the door.) Socks and under ware like to get stuck in there and that is what leads to your pump. These front load washers have a common problem with things getting sucked down into the pump if not properly taken care of. If the pump is clogged with something it won't drain and water will go everywhere sometimes. You will need to remove the front panel that is below the door. You will find you screws between the door and the panel that you need to remove. Once off the pump is right there. Make sure you clamp it off with hose clamps or you will have water everywhere. Then remove it and check for anything stuck in there. If there is a sock or something don't get to surprised, it happens all the time. Just remove the obstruction and put it back together. Make sure though that you check that boot every time you use it or soon it will damage your pump and you will need to get a new one. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck.

Kenmore 44092/spin cycle


It turns out that there was a sock stuck within the pump in the washing machine. I removed the back cover and removed all the excess water, because once the sock was removed, the water was free to escape. I just removed the hose that connects to the pump and felt the sock, and was able to remove it. Once I hooked everything back up, the washing machine ran great.

F02 code on duet/ht washer


We had this problem after our baby's socks started going missing in the wash cycle. We found them in two places: 1. Underneath the rubber gasket of the front-loading drum, and, 2. In the drain line, but not in the hose that comes out of the back of the machine. The manual and website make no mention of the three torx screws on the front, lower panel that can be removed, exposing a drain that can then be unscrewed (be prepared for A LOT of water to come out of here if you haven't been able to get it to drain). Inside here we found the culprit baby socks, removed them, ran a fan on the exposed electronics over night to dry them out, and put it back together. Problem solved. It's unbelievable that this information is not in the manual but had to be googled from sites like this. Hope this helps someone else and prevents an expensive service call. Maytag, you s u c k!

Washer won't fast spin or drain


The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a small sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump. To remove it from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub and try to remove the clothing through the port. Good luck
