THE WASHING MACHINE WASHES THE CLOTHES BUT WHEN IT COMES TO "SPIN"THE MACHINE STOPS. SPIN ICON KEEPS ON BLINKING.


Check your drain pump. It is on the front lower side of the machine. There is a small door which opens to it. Unscrew the filter and the pump cover. Be careful when you do this. There is a small drain hose next to it. Use this hose to drain to a pan before opening the filter lid.

Washed a small bath rug in the machine. The piece of rug said it was washing machine safe. The rug broke apart as I was washing it and now the washing maching will not drain. I have to open the bottom...


This becomes a long drawn out process in which you have to remove the pump and the entire drain line and wash all the backing out of the machine also you have to remove the lines that go from the tub to the pump as well and even after you finish cleaning out the drain system you still will have more pieces stuck inside the tub area that you have to clean out as well. Easiest way take the machine outside or to an area you can use a hose on the unit where after you disassemble the entire pump area that you can wash the tub out of all the small pieces of the rug backing I had the unfortunate repair of doing this to someones rubber backed rug cept it took all the rubber off the back of the rug. It took about 3 hours with hooking and rehooking the drain lines and unclogging them over and over due to this unit I was working on was in a basement and no access to a hose If you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick
p.s do this repair yourself a repair technician would charge about 200 to repair the unit due to the amount of time

F02 error code


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

Washer not draining


sorry about this problem,we get this alot your drain pump is clogged,so try this take cloths out and see if you can scoop out water.Now put rooto-roter drain opener in drum and let it sit for about 1-2hrs.Now run on heavy-duty by itself it may have to go through 2 cycles,to clear out clogg.See the drain pump is real small,so dog hair,strings,or pieces of rubber from throw rugs well clog pump.So first try this.

Small rug washing in front end loader washer


its problably not able to balenbace the load of rugs, if the machine cant balance itwont go to high speed spin. in actuallity your probalby better off bringing the rugs to the laundry mats, especially if the are rubber backed, the rubber backing will come off clogging your pump assy, then your looking at replacing hte pump for a few hundred dollars, for a clean set of $30 bath rugs.

Maytag mah4000 washer


My machine (Maytag MAH4000aww) failed to drain because of a bobby-pin that was lodged in the drain pump impeller. Because of the added weight of the wet clothes, and the undrained water; the machine would not spin. The Wax motor worked as the door did lock properly, but the machine would "ramp up" trying to spin, but would stop the process when it sensed that the load was grossly unbalanced. Check the drain pump to see that it is not clogged or that the impeller is not impeded by a foreign object before spending money on imbalance switches! I will now cancel the service man, who surely would have charged me for a new pump, plus the cost of the visit, and now I can stop swearing! My wife is glad she married me!!!!

C1 Fault


code CL.(C1) This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem. Calypo washers do have a history of break downs within the drive system.
