I have godrej gda 902 water is not getting drain after its first cycle of process can any one tell me what might be the problem

The drainage pipe is blocked up. this is a common problem amongst washing machines. People forget to check the pockets before a wash and dirt and fibers start to get stuck inside of the pipes and soon it is blocked and will not drain or drains very slowly.
Solution is to take the machine outside and unhook the drainage pipe. most of the time the blockage is there and is easily removed.
If not, hook the machine up outside and when the drainage cycle is suppose to start try to see if the blockage can be removed by spraying high pressure water up where the pipe has been disconnected. The resulting push of water from both sides may be enough to breakup the materials blocking the pipe.

Rinse fault f18

F-18 means the pump is blocked. When the machine fails, there may be an "electrical" smell as the motor has laboured. This is normal. Clean on bottom right corner and you should be fine. Drain pipe clogged. Follow insrtuctions that came with machine to drain using the little pipe bottom right. Then unscrew & clean rotor. pull out wahing machine and check drainage pipe at back is not blocked. Unscrew the drainage pipe from the sink waste and clear out. Also enaure pipe is kept high off floor and is not too long. This will help drainage and prevent pump trying to pump waste water upwards. If the pump is too old or worn out then it needs to be replaced. You can get required parts from

Error code 20 Frigidare front washer won't spin water all over floor

error code 20 is a drainage issue,check the drainage pipe at the back of the machine if its kinked or blocked,also check the pump filter behind the front panel underneath the drum at the front of the machine if its clogged,unclogge. if after you unblock the drain pipe and clean the pump the problem still persists then the pump is bad,if you cant do it your self you can get a tech to clean it for you.hope this helps

Leaking out of the bottom

The water drainage pipe is probably tampered. You need to replace it. Take apart the washing mashine and find the drainge pipe. If it is not tampered, some pipe is loose or broken in the washine mashine. If all this is too hard, call a repair man to fix it.

Message: drainage blocked

Happy to assist you,

You said,
The pipe in the back is not clogged, it is wide open. When we removed the cover for the pump in the front and open the valve, the water obviously drains out. However, when you put it back together and try to run it, it will go through a cycle and when it gets near the end of the cycle that when the message appears drainage blocked and won't drain.

The electronic type washers , can be unplugged and after 5 minutes restarted and the system is then rebooted. This resets the system and clears the codes !

If the drain is not blocked then you have a faulty sensor or a bad pump

Will not drain

It sounds like the drainage may be blocked to prove this ;
1. Switch of the Washer
2. check youve switched off.
3. have a bucket handy.
4. Pull unit forward so you can access the pipes behind.
5. Locate the grey waste corrigated pipe connected to the waste plumbing. (Not the thin water pipe)
6. Remove corrigated (thicker) pipe and hold over the bucket.
5. switch unit back on. (Holding pipe over bucket)
6. Set the unit to final spin and start - this should empty the machine completely.

If the machine empties then your plumbing may need attention because the washer cannot push its waste water out through it.
You should get a full bucket load maybe more - so be ready to empty the bucket down the sink and reposition it.

If not then the drain pump motor may be faulty. This costs £19.99 + delviery from hotpoint - see : You will have to fit this yourself - or get a friend/engineer. I have never fitted one but anyone handy and safe with tools should be able to fit. I would guess no more than one hour to do.


If you have warranty (machine is less than 1 year old) or paid for extended cover then call hotpoint to see if they can be booked in urgently...This should be free.

If you don't have warranty (your machine is older than 1 year) then its still worth calling Hotpoint - you will be charged £90 callout but parts are free for machines less than 5 years old + its warranted for 30days. This is what I recommend - especially if you have kids at home over easter!!! (then get the Extended Cover afterwards)
Call hotpoint service on 08704422510

Water coming out of the drawer

Sorry I do not have an answer for you...I have got a similar problem. Just before spinning water pours out of the dispenser drawer. Checked water pressure, drain holes etc seems ok. If you do get an answer would appreciate you letting me know. Thanks
