Hi

I hope I understood your question properly.

When you take off the drum drain pipe, you have a plastic ball and plastic ring inside the cup shaped hose which fits on the bottom of the drum.

When putting it back on, first put the plastic ring inside the cup-shaped hose. Then put the plastic ball on top of it.

Secure the hose to the bottom of the drum with the metal clamp. Make sure it is on correctly and will not pull off.

Also make sure there are no kinks in the hose leading to your drain filter.

Start a quick cycle and monitor the machine to make sure there are no leaks.

Best Regards
Ash

Model MTW5840TWO water will not drain on the spin cycle


Perhaps none. Have you checked to see if the lint filter is blocked? Usually, the lint filter can be accessed from the front bottom of the machine, often behind a small door. Open the door, open the filter (have a bucket available to catch water) and remove the blocking ball of lint.

Remove the bottom door to clean the drain screen


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

This is a general remedy for most Whirlpool made front-load machines, such as Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag, Amana etc. the info below should assist (If your machine is indeed the Duet GHW9150P as stated) in removing the panel and also cleaning the filter or "drain screen" as you referred to it.

**Turn off the breaker at the service panel or unplug the washer from the wall socket...safety first**

1) locate the screws in front at the very bottom of the panel below the door and pull the panel down and forward until it is off. They will be either 1/4" hex head or #20 torx head screws.

2) You will immediately see the drain pump in front of you with a large removable filter. ( **see image below...this is were a wet-dry shop vac and towels come in handy, also the use of the removed panel as a catch pan is beneficial...but you may still get wet )

3) Turn it counter-clockwise should allow you to remove it and inspect it and clean it out. Make a good thorough inspection inside the pump as well not just the removable filter.

4) Re-insert the filter and before placing the panel back run a test rinse/drain cycle to inspect for leaks and to verify the unit drains and spins now.

( If the problem still exist`s the Sd or "F2" or "F21" will re-appear. If so you`ll need to check the hose/rubber bellows from pump to tub...back-flow ball...for other obstructions ).

5) If all appears OK after your efforts, well your efforts paid off...pat yourself on the back. You just saved yourself potentially a couple hundred bucks !

Now You should be good to go. Re-attach the lower panel and you`re back in business.

**NOTE: if this still fails to remedy the Sd, F2, F21 or if it returns immediately during the next drain you may require a pump unfortunately...part # 280187 available at "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" etc.

**This however can also be caused by the back-flow ball inside the bellows which connects the tub to the pump. There is a large clamp which secures it to the tub, but if you remove it to clean out all the dirt built up inside, make sure you get it good and secure when putting it back.**

Hi! Our FEW 12 machine has not drained so I have manually drained it from the pipe at the back. I think there might be something blocked in the pump. How do I remove the plastic clips that hold it in?...


You don't need to remove the pump (Or you shouldn't have to anyway) Here's a copy of my standard advice for this problem (Most hotpoint machines without a filter access door are covered in paragraph 3)

The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. Your repeat of the rinse/spin cycle is giving it extra empty time and then the spin works OK.

You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not sure which with the model you mention) there is either a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) or, you will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine.

If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).

I have a Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machine. It is displaying an "F21" code, which might indicate a clogged drain hose. In order to try and un-clog the hose, I obviously have to detach it from...


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

The F2 error code explained below which can also manifest as F21, sd, or a Suds error applies to all washers manufactured by Whirlpool which include, many Kenmore, Maytag, and of course Whirlpool.

The F21 is an error code typically associated with an obstructed drain pump, pump filter or the back-flow ball in the sump bellows.

**Unplug the washer from the wall before performing any service suggested here at FixYa, unless otherwise stated...safety first**

While it is possible to be a blocked drain hose as you suggest, I wouldn't start there. Here's what to do first and check for and possible resolve it...

1) Remove the service panel at the bottom of your washer, i.e.

macmarkus_568.jpg
2) Once removed you'll be greeted by the pump with the removable filter...this is where most obstructions occur, i.e. (some differences may be obvious but same procedure apply)

macmarkus_569.jpg
If the washer hasn't drained and still has items in it or water, it may be a good time to have some towels close by or empty the machine with a wet-dry shop vac...unless you're fortunate to be close to a floor drain.

3) Turn the removable filter counter-clockwise to remove it and inspect it and clean it out. Make a good thorough inspection inside the pump as well not just the removable filter.

macmarkus_570.jpg

4) Re-insert the filter and before placing the panel back run a test rinse/drain cycle to inspect for leaks and to verify the unit drains and spins now.

5) If all appears OK after your efforts, well your efforts paid off...pat yourself on the back. You just saved yourself potentially a couple hundred bucks !

**NOTE: if this still fails to remedy the error code or if it returns immediately during the next drain you may require a pump or you'll need to check the hose/rubber bellows from pump to tub...back-flow ball...as I alluded to previously for other obstructions ).

To inspect the back-flow ball...there is a large clamp which secures it to the tub, but if you remove it to clean out all the dirt built up inside, make sure you get it good and secure when putting it back.**

macmarkus_571.jpg

Once the clamp is pulled back/loose you can pull the bellows from the tub to inspect for obstructions or "gunk" built up causing the ball to stick. i.e.

macmarkus_572.jpg


If a pump is required, you can check with your specific model number for available pumps at "searspartsdirect.com" or "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.

Duet error code F 02.


Just had this problem. Remove the kick plate in front of machine. The drain pump filter maybe clogged. Turn the white screw to remove filter, but be sure to have towels or a bucket handy. I clean mine out and now is working fine.
