Probably the pump impellor is jammed. it behind the rear cover, disconnect the pump, its only small, and clean all the pipes. check the little impellor turns freely.

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.

Steam coming out of dishwasher


Sounds like the drain hose is partially plugged restricting the water to completely pump out.

Kenmore 80 didn't drain during the spin cycle and leak underneath machine. Makes buzzing noise in the wash cycles.


The pump is likely damaged if it was leaking. Look for a ring of melted plastic on the face side of the pump. Check to make sure the hole is not rounded where the motor shaft enters the pump.
I'd replace the pump just to make sure the washer doesn't flood some time in the future even if the pump turn out to be ok now.

Heard a beeping warning half way through cycle. Went in and Ld was message flashing. Tried to stop and restart, then machine started making buzzing noise. Cannot get machine to do anythind but lock lid...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Ld means long drain and is displayed when it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water to a point where the pressure switch resets. To solve this problem make sure that the drain filter pump assembly located inside the bottom front panel is clean and after cleaning if the error returns then the pressure switch needs to be tested and if bad then it needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Makes buzzing noise and won't spin or drain


Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump.  If nothing is stuck in the pump replace the pump.  It won't spin until it drains, so fixing the drain problem will fix the spin.  You can get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel.

How do you clean pump on whirlpool. 6th sense


Hi

On the bottom right corner of the machine you will have a drain filter.

Flip open the door. It opens vertically from top down.

Please note if your pump is blocked there will be water in the machine which has not drained out. When you twist open the filter anti-clock wise, all the water will gush out. Be prepared for this with towls and mopps. Also open the filter dial, slightly at first and only allow the water to trickle out at first. Once the water is all out, open and pull out the filter. Clean out the flilter and the cavity. Look into the cavity with a torch and make sure everything is clear.
Put back the filter.
Start your machine on the "Drain" cycle only. Check to see if you can hear the water pump working. If there is no noise, then the pump needs further investigation. It may even be faulty.

Will not drain or spin


There is another posted problem similar to this one if you look at GE front-loading washers.  I can tell you right now, though, that we just cleaned the filter (had the same problem as you) and everything is working perfectly now.  The bottom panel (on the front) of your washer comes off by removing 3 screws.  Our filter was full of lint, change, barrettes, etc.  I would highly recommend looking for that other post (has more information) or trying to clean the filter.  Hope this helps!
