I cleaned out filter still would not drain n I still get f21?


Unfortunately, that usually means that the pump needs to be replaced. Open the washer again and look inside the pump area. Check if the impeller can move freely and is mounted on its shaft. If there is anything blocking the impeller, then remove the object and try again. Also check if the pressure switch tubing is clear. Remove the top of the washer and look near the back of the unit. You should see a tube attached to the switch. Remove the tube and blow through it. Check the ball valve for the drain for any foreign objects; this is just after the pump and before the drain hose. If there was anything blocking these parts, test the washer cycle again. Check the wiring for the pressure switch and the CCU.

If there were no blockages and the drain pump impeller moved freely, replace the drain pump.

I hope this helps.

make sure the drain filter is fully clear and clean
and the intake valves filters are clear
and also the driain waist system isnt slowed up and blocked
at any U bends etc.... if it is washes and drains will take longer
and the machine may detect this blockage as a bad pump etc...

Wont spin out


Generally indicates a blockage in the pump drain line or solid objects blocking the filter in the bowl, drum needs removing to clear filter if it is not a pump blockage.Drum removal should not be done with out good knowledge of machine workings.

Duets washer won't drain


Probably a blocked filter, outlet pipe or pump.
Take the drain hose and lay it flat and lower then the level of the drum and this will drain the machine providing the blockage is not solid. When machine is empty check filter , pipes and pump and remove any blockage found.
Replace drain hose and you should then be able to carry on with your wash or spin the clothes.

Machine had been giving E20 error code - filter cleared and it re-started ok. When wash was in progress - jammed at rinse stage and all lights came on (except spin speeds) and humming noise and nothing...


E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

Hi, I have an LG 1412RD washer dryer. I received the DE error message so opened the front to access the door lock and plugged in the electric socket which seemed loose. Now I am getting the OE message...


http://www.lg.com/au/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=WD-1412RD&matchedModelCode=NOT_MATCHED&searchEngineModelCode=WD-1412RD&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile#
Owners manual above. LG washing machine error code – OEThe LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn’t pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

My washer is stuck on drain and will not do anything


Possibly blocked or faulty pump? Maybe a faulty air switch.
You can check the filter, if it's clear, remove lid; you'll see a small rubber tube running up to a pressure switch, disconnect tube and see if cycle continues in normal fashion. If the fault goes, you have a faulty switch or a blockage somewhere.
Hope this helps
