Re: Water won't drain

As suspected, it is most likely the drain pump.

For one that works intermittently, the impeller is probably slipping on the motor shaft. Sometimes it grips, other times it doesn't, causing the water to not be removed, which the machine senses and shuts down.

If this occurs during the wash cycle itself, there may also be a problem with the wash pump. That usually displays an E1 error.
