I have a IE washer continue to fill and drain at the same time


most likely your drain hose is lower than the water level. check for correct hight of fitting the hose. Also the water can syphon out if there is no "air- break" between the hose and the stand pipe

My Whirlpool washer (model # GHW9200LW, serial #CSM 4604196) is blinking "F02," which means there is a drain problem. My husband disconnected the drain hose and cleaned it. The washer continues to blink...


Hi,


Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.


* Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.

* Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.

* Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

* If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.



Thank you !!

Electrolux dishwasher won't drain. Not a clog in the outlet hose or drain pipe.


The drain hose on a washing machinemag-glass_10x10.gif connects the drain pump to a stand pipe, a U-pipe under the sink, or another place for draining dirty water into the sewer. If your washer won't drain properly, the problem is sometimes an object blocking the drain hose, like a pair of underpants, a child's sock, or pieces of something that broke up in the washer.
  1. Unplug the washer and put the plug on top of the machine to keep it out of any spilled water.
  2. Step 2 Take any wet clothes out of the washer and bail the water out of the drum with the bucket. The washer may be too heavy to move if it's full of water and wet clothing.
  3. Step 3 Pull the washer out from the wall enough for you to get behind it.
  4. Step 4 Remove the plate from the back of the washer by taking out all the screws. Different brands and models of washers vary in how many screws hold on the back plate, and not all models require removing the plate to get to the pump where the hose is attached.
  5. Step 5 Locate the drain hose. Of the three hoses coming out of the back of the washer, the drain hose is the largest in diameter and is attached to a drain pipe instead of a faucet.
  6. Step 6 Check the drain hose for kinks and bends. These are often the cause of a blocked or slow-running drain hose.
  7. Step 7 Remove the drain hose from the washer by detaching it from the drain pump. You will need a screwdriver or a slide-lock wrench to open the clasp that holds the hose to the pump, depending on what type of clasp it is.
  8. Step 8 Keep the bucket nearby to catch any water that comes out of the drain pump when you remove the hose.
  9. Step 9 Remove the other end of the house from the pipe it drains into.
  10. Step 10 Bend the clothes hanger open so you can use it to poke inside the hose. Push or pull out the material that's causing the blockage.
  11. Step 11 Replace the hose and run the washer to check if it's clear.

A box of tooth picks made it into the washer and went though the water draining holes. Now it's really loud when draining. How can I clean it out??? HELP!!


You probably have toothpicks caught in the drain pump impeller. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you will need to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door and locate the drain pump. Remove the panel by loosening the screws holding it in place along the bottom edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. The pump will be located to the lower right hand side of the wash tub. In order to clean out this type of pump, you will need to remove the larger rubber inlet hose. Check the impeller area of the drain pump and clean all debris from the hose. Make sure you locate all the toothpicks, or the problem may result in a damaged pump. If you continue to have problems, you may have damaged the pump beyond repair. It does not take much to damage the small impeller and/or motor of these drain pumps and if they do not pump at the required volume, you will continue to have drain problems unless you replace it. Hopefully, it won't come to that.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than what you have listed, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My washer is not draining during the spin cycle


not draining your washer at all, pump may be bad or no power to pump, take the drain hose out of the "stand-pipe" where water enters the sewer drain, and lower to floor and see if water drains by gravity if only slowly your pump or hose may have a slug of crud in it blocking drainage to sewer pipe
