There's water left inside the washer, won't spin it out

Today I found the laundry soaked "after" the machine turned off. First it beeped awhile then flashed F 02. When I opened the door water poured out and the load of wash was soaking wet with several inches of water in the tub.

I can't find the store receipt so I can't determine if I have a service contract still, I am desperate for an answer since it looks like I will have to fix it myself.

I do not know if the computer system is messed up, it worked fine the load before this one that I write about. I just hope that you can give me an answer to correct this unfortunate situation. I have had no problems with this machine until today, so I am totally surprised. Thanks

Re: there's water left inside the washer, won't spin it...

A common problem I have found is pieces of paper and plastic, as well as coins, collect in the pump. Remove the lower front panel (3 screws at bottom of panel). Make sure washer is unplugged. The pump is right in front. On the front of the pump is a cream/tan colored face. Grasp the finger grip portion of the face and unscrew, going counter clockwise. Check for and remove those pieces of paper and plastic, as well as coins. The paper and plastic plug up the drain side of the pump, causing the 02 code and poor draining. Reassemble and test.

I followed info on line and got an error code 61 - however I can't find out what error 61 is. My washer seems to be working ok - I have done several loads of laundry - but it keeps beeping and beeping!...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, you do not say the make and model of your particular machine BUT I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

We purchased our LG Washer and Dryer from HH Gregg in 2006. For about the last year of normal operation our washer will not completely drain all of the water out at the end of the rinse and spin cycle. ...

Either pump is bad or something is blocking it. Did you pull filter at bottom left corner and clean it out? Look inside make sure nothing is in there.

do NOT call the Blue guys from Sears,,,he told me it would cost more than $2000 to fix a machine that will wash but not spin or drain ( I could get it to do both by pushing certain buttons). It is now outside and I have a used $215 washer that is doing great.

Fron t Load washer will not unlock

Usually, the door will not unlock because there is water still inside the unit.  You will need to get the water out of the tub to get the door to open.  On the bottom left corner, there is a small door.  Inside the door is a small rubber drain hose.  This will empty out the water inside.  After awhile, the machine will unlock the door.

Fisher & Paykel GWL10 US won't spin

If the machine still has water in it, the drain pump is jammed or there may be an obstrution in one of the hoses. It is most likely the drain pump. Switch off the machine at the wall and unplug it. Tilt machine against a wall and look underneath. On the right you will see the drain pump. It looks upside down. Unplug the wiring harness to the pump and remove pump by turning it clockwise while at the same time releasing the little white clip that holds the pump in place. Clean thoroughly and replace pump.

My washer doesn't open...

The instruction manual suggests running the "drain & spin" cycle, because there is most likely water left in the machine.
