Front loader leaking underneath in the back corner on the left hand side


If its leaking during the fill cycle, its one of the water valves (solenoids) or associated hoses, loose clamps, etc. If its leaking during draining its the drain hoses, pump, clamps etc. Easiest way to tell. Pull it out, if you can remove the back, run it and look for the leak. Just don't touch anything while its running, you don't want to lose a finger or get electrocuted.

How do I fix a drain error on my LG front load washer?


Hello. I\'ve had 3 drain errors on 2 LG washers. 1 was a clogged filter. The other two were failed drain pumps. The drain filter is behind the little plastic door on the lower left corner of the front of the washer. Pop the door off with a flathead screwdriver, and unscrew the gray knob behind it. WARNING: All of the water in the tub WILL come gushing out when you do this. Have something ready to soak it up. Expect several gallons of smelly water and prepare accordingly. Once the knob is unscrewed you can pull the filter out. If you are lucky, you\'ll find it stuffed with the most disgusting detritus on earth. If you are unlucky, you need a new drain pump. Suspect this if your pump sounds like a box of broken rocks or if it makes no sound at all. The drain pump is located inside the washer near the place where you pulled the drain filter. For both of the failures I\'ve seen the plastic impeller on the pump has failed and spins freely on the shaft. I got the replacement parts from RepairClinic. To change the pump I pulled the (now drained) washer away from the wall and leaned it backwards so I could work from underneath. Don\'t drop it on your hands or brain. I seem to recall that the only tools required were a phillips head screwdriver, pliers for the hose clamps, and band-aids for the sharp metal edges. Best of luck.

My Hoover Ultracare 1300 washing machine has just stopped before the spin - full of water. I have tried several options but can't get it to move at all from that. It will rinse and move clothes around, but...


Yes. the pump may be blocked. look at the bottom of the washing machine front and you will see a flap undoo this and take out any bitts stuck in. Caution. Make sure the washing machine is un pluged and when you unscrew that plug. all of the water will come out of the machine. Best to do it outside. If that dose not work it means the pump has blown.

My Asko 6461 washing machine - F3 code


F3 problem, I had the issue on model W6461, however, judging by the amount of F3 issues posted this could work on other ASKO models If the coin trap in the drain is clear of debris, try this. Stages as follows:
1) Open drain pump door (bottom left of machine).
2) Remove black pipe and drain residual water.
3) Unscrew coin trap and remove, use a container to hold the water.
4) Leave the container underneath and make sure you have some towels ready (I didn't at the time)
5) Where the washing machine drain hose connects to the outlet in the wall or U bend connector remove this and expose the end.
6) Blow into the drain hose as hard as possible......hopefully the blockage will clear back through the coin trap.
7) Pour some water into the open end and blow this back through the drain as well.

Result:
A large lump of sludge, three of my 5 year olds small counter coins and about a litre of water (all over the floor, don't forget the towels!)

Just ran the machine now and fault cleared.


Good luck

E20 message I get on my washer machine


Below is for Whirlpool/Kenmore, u might find it helpful. Some machines have a small trap door on left front bottom, coin trap.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

I have a Hoover Washer HNF 1617 that is leaking water underneath.


You may have the threads for that strianer cap crossed or its just loose. First, try tightening it if it still leaks use teflon tape or pipe dope to seal it. there isn't much pressure there...so it is definitly repairable. At worst you may need to replace the drain pump.

Leaking on the floor on "small load" setting only


I have been selling and been doing factory authorized service on GE for nearly 30 years. I have sold many of this model. It's hard to imaging that a machine would leak water on small loads but not larger loads. In a case such as this, a servicer must remember to test the machine exactly as the home owner is using it. I would take pull the machine away from the wall and adjacent cabinets and dryer if hoses permit, (so that I could rule out water coming from somewhere other that the washer) remove the front panel, and have the home owner run the exact cycle with the exact settings and the same clothes load and soap used when the machine leaked. I suspect that some water is splashing over the wash tub. If you use a gentle cycle or a larger load you get less splashing. Even having a few more cloths items in the machine would reduce splashing. You might not expect a solution, but you do deserve an explanation. Some times the solution is strange, for example: I had a customer who said the washer leaked a lot of water onto the floor the first time it was used in the day, but worked great the rest of the day. I came out early the next day and tested the machine, and it did exactly that. What happened was the builder added on this new laundry room and the drain pipe went through the floor before the plumber added the trap. The builder then insulated the area but put the insulation on the room side of the trap, allowing cold air to freeze and plug the drain. After warm water pumped into the drain and most of the water overflowed the top of the pipe onto the floor, the rest of the water melted the ice in the trap and the machine worked fine until the next day after the water had a chance to form a later of ice in the trap again. The fix was simply to move the insulation to the other side of the trap. (OK, here in Minnesota we run into weird things like that, but my point is to test the machine exactly as it is used to find where the problem lies) I'd like you to post a comment when you find your solution.
