  • Anonymous I have an Asko W660 front loading washer. I cleaned the pin trap of any debris but the washer does not drain the water. I get an error message on the display indicating a "water outlet fault". I hear the pump running but the water will not drain. How do I clear out the drain if it is clogged?

Answer # 1

You need to clean out your outlet filter; this needs to be done periodically - according to your usage. If this does not solve your problem check out your outlet pump. Plug off the wall first before you do the jobs. The machine will not drain water if the outlet is clogged. And rate me pl, if the solution has worked......

  • prem mathew What does your manual say about cleaning filters? There are machines without filters. The thing you found, is it removable to be cleaned, you shd check these things out...........

  • prem mathew Look for the kick panel in front below, 3 screws beneath. On opening you will find drain hose & filter cap. Be prepared for lots of water. Open out and clean well. Also check out your exit hose.

You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.
