You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.

SOURCE: Drain pump removal on Zanussi FJR1254 Washing Machine

not easy.suggest you disconnect pump and power up independently as an easy way to check if it runs
easiest way to remove pump - and its awkward - is to undo the 3 screws holding the pump to its housing

have you checked the filter behind the flap on the front of the machine, this could be blocked. if the machine is full of water though you will have to manually drain it by putting the grey outlet hose into a bucket or a washing up bowl. you will also need one or two towels to place on the floor because there wil still be a bit of water left in the ipes even though the drum is empty.

hope this helps

SOURCE: miele washing machine wont drain

hi friend,
If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many
washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub
that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's
attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the
hoses
from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the
large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator,
top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might
be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be
turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably
has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the
pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen
or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your
washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the
washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck
in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

* If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


* If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

SOURCE: miele W1712 washing machine drain fault

Just had the same problem, after Much patience and persistence I found the blockage at the y piece that joins the pump to the outlet hose air trap towards the top of the machine LHS with the top and cover off.

It was clogged solid therefore no back pressure on the top little ball valve (between the air trap and the outlet) therefore no seal therefore norain therefore a drain-fault that persists regardless of a cleaned pump filter.

Model EDI97170W code error E20 appear on the LCD panel.. is means for


An Electrolux?

The E20 fault code means there is a blockage in the drainage system of the machine.

Check the drain hose, the laundry sink tub and also the pump filter at the bottom right hand side of the washing machine on the front of the cabinet. Pry the door open, undo the filter bung and clean out the pump housing ok,

One of these is blocked and it is restricting the flow of water when the machine should be fully drained before spinning.

E21 error is showing on my electrolux EWF14811 washing machine. What does this mean and how do I clear it?


E21 means a problem with the water draining.
Could be defective: drain pump, pressure switch, wiring, current leak between heating element and ground and finally main board.
Also could be drain filter or drain tube (kinked or clogged) and leaks from water circuit on pressure switch.

Electrolux EWF1074 7kg washer stuck on drain cycle


The first thing I would check is the drain line, not for a blockage but to see if the drain line isn't pushed down in the drain so far that its below the level of the pump. If it is you'll have a siphon effect going and the machine will never advance past rinse

My front load Electrolux washer asks me "clean


You do not need to clean a drain pump. After you have washes so many loads of clothes, soap scum builds up in your tub and will shorten the life of your product. You just need to run it thru the "clean" cycle. You can use 1/2 cup of bleach and NO detergent or you can by a tub cleaner from most grocery stores or Walmart and use that. It'll just remove any soap scum and mineral build-up off your tub. It should be done each time you washer tells you to do it. Hope this helps. :)

Hi Ihave an electrolux EWD 1477 washer/ dryer. It keeps showing up an error 20 (E20) and starts beeping and stops working? Any ideas what it could be? Thanks kindly


Drainage problem. If it is a new installation the possible causes can be:
- The drainage hose is too deep in the drain (can only be max. 10 cm. in the drain, and the drain height may be a minimum of 30cm and a maximum of 80cm from the floor);
-
The drainage pump may be blocked (clean it);
- The drain is clogged.

Hi my washing machine is coming up with error E20,as i do not have the instruction book ,i dont no what ,or how to do it,thanx


E20 means Drain error in wash phase.

This could be a normal clogged Drain Filter or worse maybe a faulty drain motor.
Please do the following:
- Clean the filter, by removing the drain filter compartment Lid (Found Left lower area of the front of the Washing Machine), then draining any excess water, afterwards turn the cap anti-clockwise to remove it. You can then put your fingers in to feel if there is any obstructions or foreign objects that may be obstructing the drain pump impeller from moving freely. Re-fit the lid and test the machine.

If it did not help, you will need to replace the pump. I

My electrolux frontload washer seems to be stuck on the "drain" cycle. It is making a loud buzzing noise and will not drain or perform any function.


Hi

Loud buzzing sound is coming from drain pump. It is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
