Siemens 1433 Washer - Aquastop

I have a 1433 Siemens washer and the pump was blocked so I cleaned the trap, but now the aquastop is stopping the washer. How do I reset the aquastop feature or is it something else?

Re: Siemens 1433 Washer - Aquastop

I had the "pump blocked" message, and we had the pump replaced after the technician took a look. He said the washer had been overused (we had run it 4 times a day for 8 months).

Model Wm2496HSM will not spin and drain

Jodie, the OE fault is a drain problem. First thing to look at is the pump coin trap on the bottom of the washer behind the little door. If the washer has water in it, pull out the little hose, remove the stopped at the end and drain into a shallow bucket. When the water stops, removed the trap by twisting the trap handle counter clock wise. If it is full of "stuff" clean it and reinstall it. If it is clean, then you either have a bad pump or something stopping the pump.

Have a Whirpool washer when put on light Aqustopcomes on washer will not work

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Whirlpool's 'Aquastop' is used to show that there is a leak into the bottom pan of the washer (where there is a sensor to check if water is indeed leaking!).

The first thing to do is to have the leak investigated by somebody there as we could only offer a list of guesses ;-0)
Once it is empty and carefully lifted onto its side, it should be possible to inspect the hoses and clips and hopefully identify the culprit. In some cases it might even be possible to affect at least a temporary fix whilst obtaining the necessary spare.
Sorry we could be only of limited help in this instance- it's very difficult diagnosing this sort of problem remotely ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My Siemens WFXD8400UC won't drain; I have checked the hose and nothing is blocked as far as I can tell. Any suggestions?

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

You mentioned you checked the hose, yet based on your description it sounds like a pump isse.

I would start by checking the pump for lint or other debris which may prevent it from draining properly.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker at your service first**

Here`s how...Start by removing the bottom front panel which provides access to the drain pump and manual door lock release.

1) Carefully lift and block (up with a 2x4 or egual block of some type) front of washer to provide access to screws along the bottom which are angled slightly.

2) Remove three (3) screws, then carefully slide panel down and away from washer.

3) You should now see the pump access filter to your right, as such...

4) The pump has a small tub connected to it which will allow you to try and drain the water from it before removing the filter.

5) The filter will unscrew counter clockwise...careful it likely has water in it. This is where a wet-dry shop-vac comes in handy....or a nearby floor drain.

6) Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.

7) After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.

8) Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access panel off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.
Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "fixya" and good luck.

Awm8143 FA code

Service manual say FA is "aquastop failure- check aquastop switch", (aquastop switch is flood switch located in base of machine), however looking at the parts view of this machine, it doesn't seem to have a flood switch-odd.
F9 is an overflow problem- manual says to check pressure switch.
Both faults seem to indicate either a leak or overflow problem- remove rear panel and check base for any water, which would indicate a leak.
If OK, next step would be to remove front panel (remove wire and spring from around door seal, remove 2 screws holding door lock, remove 3 screws along base- front panel comes off by pulling down and out towards you-can be a bit tight)
Pressure switch is located just above door lock-it has the black tube going to it- remove tube and blow into switch-you should hear it click.
Also check the chamber that the other end of the tube connects to on the bottom front of tub- this chamber can get blocked up and cause overfill problems.
Please note- always disconnect from power supply before attempting any repairs. If in any doubt, best to leave for an expert.
Good luck!!

Front load machine getting F 02 flashing on screen machine has stopped working??? Help

That code means the aquastop has activated. This means that you have a leak on the machine which is filling the tray underneath with water and stopping the machine from working. Probably a job for an engineer.
