    Thank you very much for your help, I recently had the door gasket replaced by a service company, I complained after the repair was complete that the door was not in alignment and it had to be physically lifted up to close the door. The repairman told me that this was due to the new gasket was not molded to the door like in the factory, and it would be a year before it closed properly. Is it possible that this miss alignment caused the door control to fail. I made an error in my model number it is WFXD5201UC , Thank you for all your help

You may need to Clean out the pump catch to do this you need to remove the drain pump access cover, insert a pointed object (or tool) into the hole, Bottom right front of the unit push in to release the latch and rotate the cover clockwise.

E04 problem you dont need a tech. If your gasket ever ripped while doing a load probably a piece on clothing got in and found its way to the pump that drains. This could be a few years down the line that this will block the water from exiting.So heres what you need to do to get it out.There is a round cover on lower right corner in the front of the machine. turn the cover to align with the 3 latches that keep the cover on or just pry it with a screw driver. Inside there will be a black cover that you need to turn by hand to unscrew it. Yes this water is the drain water and it doesnt smell great. Water will start coming out when you start turn this black cover so have towels around. Once its open stick you hand in and you should find some clothing that is blocking. Thats it make sure nother is left behind like a little cloth that got ripped from the turning pump and it in the turning part of the pump. Know you just save the service diagnostic charge and what other bs they would have said.

We have a Siemen's front loader washer. Today, it showed an E04 error. In the past, when this was the result of too much soap, it could be cleared by adding some fabric softener mixed with water into the soap dispenser and starting the washer over again.
However, this time, the washer wouldn't drain or spin. We tried clearing the drain hose from the washer to main drain and that didn't help. After reading some helpful posts, including the one above, we decided to check the pump filter.
owever, since there was still a lot of water in the washer and we couldn't open the door to drain it, we had to try a few things. First---we unplugged the washer.
We removed the round cap on the front lower part of the front of the washer (it twists off) and found the black pump filter cover. We used a flexible plastic funnel (with a notch cut out so we could get our hand in) and slowly turned the filter cover. The funnel helped to direct the water into a bucket. (Our washer is on a pedestal, which helped.) There was A LOT of water to drain (3 buckets, 3/4 full). When draining was complete, we removed the filter and found a few things that were likely the cuprits. We put the filter unit back in snuggly and the washer again worked.
Good luck!

Nd code, water left in tub with the nd error code. What could be the problem?


sounds like your fill tube has been flooded, there is a plastic tubing that detects water pressure of the water sounds like it has been removed and now has water in it, which is not letting it drain all the way because the vacuum is picking up it is empty when the spin cycle stops and why it stops open the machine if you havent already and look for it the hose and a float valve work together to stop water when full and shut off the pump when empty this seems to be your problem. this fill valve and if it has the fill tube make sure there is no fluid in it also.

My front loading Crosley washing machine is showing error code 21. What does that code mean?


Can't remember the exact error code, but my crosley front loader would not spin. I found out this was because all the water was not being pumped out. I wash a lot of dog blankets and found out the drain basket was completely blocked. I was able to remove and clean from the back and this fixed my problem. I guess it could be the pump but check this basket first. The way I did it from the back was hard so I suspect there is a better way to access the basket.

Machine stopped in mid cycle with the drain/unlocking light on. No error codes. Machine goes directly to the drain/unlocking position after start. Will not fill, spin, operate. Any ideas?


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.

check in the manual for the error code most of washing machine if the error code is in users manual its means its only minor problem,but if the error code is not in users manual its means you need to call an service technician to not waste your money or time if you do by your self.

Are you saying it is draining the water properly? Because it sounds as though the pump is faulty. Every now and then you get pup motor that don't short out or stop completely they just don't drain we'll anymore. The drain period on your machine is timed so a slow drain may cause the error. So even though everything is clear and 'working' the pump needs replacing. Another cause would be a false reading from the pressure switch(level switch) but you would normally have problems with fill etc also, so unlikely.

When my cycle is done my washing machine read sd


Hello, W/D here.

Sd is the error code for suds lock. If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the
drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again. The SD code indicates the possibility of too much detergent being used. Run a rinse and spin cycle to remove detergent residue. Then run a normal cycle without detergent.
Items to check if it is occurring at the end of the cycle would be to check the drain line and waste outlet for plugging or kinks and check the wiring harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch and CCU (Central Control Unit). It may be necessary to check and clean the drain pump filter.
Best regards, --W/D--
