Washing machine trouble

Our washer stops about 15 minutes into the cycle. The little tube from the drain pump is clogged, but I cleaned the drain pump filter. The washer worked for a couple of days, then reverted back to the old problem. If i restart on a rinse/spin cycle, it seems to run through to the end.

Re: Washing machine trouble

Very important that the thin tube is clog free, disconnect from top to blow into it, clear if any block, refit. This is connected to the pressure switch, controls water level.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Important: height of drain hose is abt 3 feet from ground level.

Error code e21 on frigidaire affinity washer cleaned pumped and ran a rinse cycle it did fine put clothes in to wash it ran for 10 min. then stopped.

Hello Deena,
Error Code e21
means the water is not pumping out fast enough.The most likely reason is because the washer drain filter is clogged.
Here is a solution:
  1. Pull the machine out from the wall.
  2. Then take the panel out in the rear. Once the panel is off you will see the drain pump.
  3. Disconnect the drain Tube between the Tub and the Pump.
  4. Look inside the pipe you will find the Drain Filter.
  5. Clean the filter out ( you will be surprised of "things" found in the filter) then put the machine back together
  6. Try a full cycle.
That should end your problem.
Best of Luck!

My Zanussi WJD 1257 washer/dryer's drying cycle has started finishing early. No error codes. The wash cycle works fine but the drying cycle is simply stopping prematurely. You can set it to dry for 45...

Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

The washer will not drain after the rinse cycle

Three main causes for water not draining are listed below:
  1. Clogged drain tube - exhaust or relief tube the hose empties into (does not apply if hose empties into a sink)
  2. Clogged drain hose - occasionally, debris from the wash will find it's way into the hose and clog, backing water up into the machine
  3. Clogged drain pump - like the drain hose, debris gets jammed into the pump. It may take a while for the pump to accumulate enough debris before it clogs. Disconnecting the hose under the washer will occasionally leave enough room to dig out any clogs in the pump. If not, the pump may need to be removed to clear the obstruction.

F 2 Flashing. cleaned the hoses to pump which were clogged. Still F 2 error. Can stop or cancel load, wait 15 minutes and start drain spin cycle which does fine. Can I reset the board in some way?

did you remove the lower panel and unscrew the pump clean out? if you did that and the code is still present...check that the pump is getting 120 volts... if its not you have a bad control board if it is you have a bad pump... if you dont know how to check for voltage with a multimeter then you should call for service on the machine

What should I do?


Error OE means drain error, this occurs when the draining doesn't occur within 10 minutes. This happens due to clogging of drain hoses and drian filter. It can also occur when the drain pump is clogged. To check where the issue is you'll need to disassemble the washer and check for the drain pump, remove alll the hoses connected to it and clean all the debris. The pump is behind the filter screen on lower left front side of the washer. Also clean the drain filter and remove any possible clogs.

This error may also appear when the drain hose is not installed properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine. Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi , I have an elctrolux washing machine, and it stops half way through the cycle 'saying' E20. Does anyone know waht I have to do Thanks RN

E20 is difficulties in draining for washing. which can be drain tube kinked or blocked, drain filter clogged or dirty or the pump impeller behind filter is getting jammed by a coin or cotton or anything wrapped around it, remove filter and look at back of hole and see if impeller will turn use a long screwdriver to turn it, obviously with the power off

Machine stops with SE code

That code (5E, not SE) means the drainage is clogged. The code appears after 15 minutes of trying to drain the tube (not sure that´s the word, may be turbine, barrel...). check the lateral filter (a big plastic twist-off cap) for any solid that may be clogging the drainage

Kenmore Front loader clogged up

open the back panel to access the hoses. look for the largest-diameter round hose and disconnect it. this should be the drain hose. it also should lead to a vertical-rising pipe or hose that then dumps downward (U-tube at top) into your house piping outside the washer. My hunch is the clog is somewhere before the area where you disconnected and may need to remove all hoses from the pump and also clean pump's impeller.
