Question about Whirlpool AWM6120 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

There is still water in the drum even though I have opened and emptied thru the drain plug in the front. The machine gives error message "drainage fault" as the two bottom LEDs are blinking.

    Would have been more helpful to explain that it is not uncommon that the hose from the drum to the pump can get clogged even though it is a relatively large hose. It is accessable from underneath the washer as the machine is open underneath and can be accessed by pulling the machine out approx 0,5 meters and then tilting the machine. The hose is fixated to the drum by a hose clamp and with a pair of plyers it is possible to open the hose clamp and remove the hose to clean it.

What does E20 mean


The E20 error code indicates a problem with water drainage. Inspect the drainage hose for kinks that could impede the drainage flow. This frequently occurs when the machine is pushed up against the wall without allowing room for the hoses. If there are no kinks, the hose is probably clogged. Carefully detach the hose from the machine, and use a garden hose to force water through it. If the water doesn't pass through, use a plumber's snake to clear the clog. If there is no clog, inspect the drain pump for clogs. Unplug the machine, and open the small rectangular door towards the bottom of the front of the machine. Drain the pump through the emptying hose into a container until the water flow stops, and rotate the pump impeller to clear any foreign objects. Close the pump and restart the cycle. If the problem persists, contact a service center.

Machine had been giving E20 error code - filter cleared and it re-started ok. When wash was in progress - jammed at rinse stage and all lights came on (except spin speeds) and humming noise and nothing...


E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

My old front load whirlpool isn't draining. Someone suggested opening a plug on the bottom left of the machine front that may have gotten clogged but we were unable to open it. any suggestions?


hello,

the solution giving to you i also a way of draining the water from the washer ,

But i will like to draw back your attention back to the drain pipe inside the drum of the washer..... what you need to do to fix up (solve)the problem of the drainage from here is that you have to bale out the waste water in the drum of the washer to see the cloth or dirty that have form up to block the pipe of the water out flow, remove any form of dirty around the pipe that have stop the water flowing as is expected to, with this the problem of blockage is solve.

please note this important information PUT OFF ALL FORMS OF POWER SUPPLY CONNECTED TO THE WASHER.

Thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Hi, I have an LG 1412RD washer dryer. I received the DE error message so opened the front to access the door lock and plugged in the electric socket which seemed loose. Now I am getting the OE message...

Owners manual above. LG washing machine error code – OEThe LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn’t pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

Hoover easy logic error message number 3 model is a EL 160


E3 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.



Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.



Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain program.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.
