My dishwasher is having trouble draining, how do i fix this?

Natalie, there are two major causes of this condition: first look at and clean all filters. Too much particulate matter clogs screens.

Also, check that the drain hose is not kinked.

How to clean drain hose

Drain hose very rarely plug up. you can remove the hose and check it but I would bet the relay that opens the drain on the washer is not working correctly. If you have have a bit of tool skills they are relatively easy to replace but check the hose first.

My lg washer and dryer wm3431hs isn't draining. I took of the hoses in the back, cleaned the filters and still nothing please help!


If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, 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...

I have "nd" displayed

You need to check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Look for anything clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken/missing blades and that the impeller spins freely. If any blades are missing/broken or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged pump. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

F02 code - won't spin

You you probably need a pump, but try this first.  Remove the pump filter again and put you finger into the hole going to the pump and see if there is anything in it and see if you can turn the pump impeller. If this checks ok, Put filter back in and put washer into drain/spin. It should spin since you have drained the tub. If so replace the pump. 

If it still doesn't spin remove the top of the washer and find the pressure switch. It will have a rubber hose going from it down to the bottom rear of the tub. Remove the hose from the switch and make sure you can blow through it. Hook hose back to switch and try drain/spin again. If washer does not spin now, you will need to do some trouble shooting with a volt/ohm meter or have a tech come out.

Post back to let me know what you find out.
