I have the same question....since I own a cabin with no basement floor drains. I have to pump my washer discharge to a main level drain.

To check the elevation needed, hook a garden hose to the discharge line and, after running the discharge end outside, raise or elevate the line using a line and tree branch to determine the height at which pump discharge quits. 33 feet equals appoximately 1 atmos or 14.7 psig.

My GE gfwh2400loww washer, the pump filter needs to be drained every 1 or 2 times a wash is done..otherwise water stays in, and when you drain it, it smells musty and horrible. I checked the manual,


You should not have to clean filter . Check your hose for clogs ,follow the hose all the way to where it drains into the sewer line. If your sewer line is very high up the pump may not be able to pump out all water efficiently. So some water will flow back down to the pump. If there is a clog up high, the clog will not allow draining. These pumps are strong ,but not that strong. Please let me know what you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Washer makes high pitched noise after draining


This is due to the fact that the draim pump is still running DRY and so makes the high pitch noise. Check the timer or reset to a low spin dry cycle. If not check the drain circuit power using a multimeter from the program controller unit.IF there is power and the motor makes noise then remove and check if the pump is clogged, clean and reset.

Water remains in machine. Machine stops after a minute or so and diplays F11.


F11 means Drainage fault.

Water present in appliance and is not being drained off. The display shows Drain fault F11. The buzzer is activated for 2 minutes.

Background information:
After each drain pump step, the circulation pump operates for 2 seconds and heater pressure switch B1/13 checks the water level. If it is too high (large quantity of residual water remaining in the cabinet), the drainage time is extended. If, after a further check, the water level is still too high, then the program is interrupted, the fault code is saved and the drain pump is activated. Fault code F11 is also registered if heater relay 1K1 is not activated after the fault code F51 register check; see Section 080-3.18. Drain hose kinked. Remedy: Check the drain hose for correct positioning.

Cause: Drain blocked.
Remedy:
1. Clean the on-site drain.
2. Check the sump drain.
3. Check the filters.
4. Check the heater pressure switch and replace it if necessary.

Cause: Ball in non-return valve in sump has not opened (e.g., jammed).
Remedy:
Clean the non-return valve in the sump or replace it if necessary. Cause: Foreign objects in the drain pump.

Remedy:
Clean the drain pump and its impeller.

Cause: Drain pump defective.
Remedy:
1. Check the voltage supply to the drain pump.
2. If correct voltage is present, check the drain pump motor winding.
3. Replace the drain pump, if necessary.

Cause: Foreign objects in heater pressure switch.
Remedy:
Check the heater pressure switch for blockages and correct switching point.

Cause: Heater relay defective. Heater relay (coil or contacts) becomes defective during the drainage step (after fault code F51 register check).
Remedy:
Replace the heater relay.


Hope this helps to solve it.

Lower height can be a violation, higher won't be. Pumps are only used to drain in a high volume environment. Many commercial clippers and washers don't have them.

Wont drain,, ive checked the spin thing inside the housing at the botom,, the water came out but it is still spinning


You need to access the drain pump, if the drain lines are all clean then it is likely a defective drain pump.

The drain pump must be tested before replacing it, by energizing it directly, this must be done by a technician, as there is high voltage in there.
