Trap ans screen are only on the outside, access further down to the propeller and the rotor. Take it out to clean all debris. Pay attention to the marks.Parts are all made by plastic. By forcing it in a place incorrectly may cause them broken. When those debris are out of the in-port, the propeller can drain all water out.

My Fisher & Paykel double dishwasher won't drain completely


It may be a blocked hose. First point to check is under the sink where the thin corrugated drain hose joins the sink drain. If it is a double dish drawer there will be two hoses, one black and one white. The black hose is usually from the top drawer. They are held on by spring clamps.
If this is not the problem, post again.

Asko 12505 fills with water, doesn't rotate, doesn't spin or drain.


Hello.


If your washer is indeed a WFL2066, than the not spinning is directly relatedto the unit not draining.

These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.

Here is the first step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drainpump/filter to clean it.

To reach the filter and clean it...

**Unplug the washer from the dryer or wall, or turn off the 30amp breakerat the home service panel...safety first**

1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of thewasher.

2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where awet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works aswell.

3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out.Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or yourwasher detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreignobjects/obstructions.

4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight. Beforeclosing up the small access door, run a short rinse spin cycle to check forleaks.

Let me know how you make out, or if you require further assistance.

Thanks.

Front loading washer, kenmore 417.42052100 won't completely drain and leaves a tub full of water. Has been getting worse over the last week and now won't drain at all. Took off front panel to try...


The drain filter/coin trap is blocked or the pump is no longer working. The filter/trap is located inside the big black hose that runs from the bottom of the tub to the pump and hence the name tub-to-pump hose. Clean the filter and inspect the pump impeller for damage or restriction.

Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off. Once the panel is off, you can now loosen the clamps securing the tub-to-pump hose to the bottom of the tub and the pump's inlet then take the hose out and clean the filter/trap.

You should find foreign objects such as coins, toothpicks, hairpins and the likes blocking the filter. Clear the filter from the foreign objects and inspect the pump impeller by turning it with your finger. The impeller may be restricted or damaged resulting in the water not being pumped out properly or none at all. Replace the pump if the impeller is broken or restricted and doesn't turn freely or if the pump is no longer operational. You can tell the pump is no longer operational if all are clean and the impeller is in good shape and turning freely. Reassemble the machine by following the steps above in reverse order.

When installing the filter in the coin trap, the top ring of the filter MUST be seated in the 3rd convolution from the bottom.

Water not drainiNg after completion of cycle


Hi,
Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage. Also check the non return valve under the filter and make sure the drain pump can turn freely. This should solve the draining issue.
As for the dishes not being cleaned on the top drawer check the holes on the top spray arm. If the holes are blocked up with food you will get poor wash results. Best way to clean the spray arm is to remove it by unscrewing it and giving it a good clean under the tap and poking the holes to clear any blockages.
Hope this helps

Water won't drain, error message: E20


error code E20 means that the coin trap/drain pump hose needs cleaned out.It can be done by the owner with a friend helping.

1. Unplug the unit.
2. Tilt the unit up to where the front feet are in the air and the back feet are still on the ground. Please make sure the unit is propped up safely.Or you can lay the unit on its back side.
3. Now that the unit is propped up look inside the hole on the bottom of the unit - on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
4. Clean the drum out with as much water as possible and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out.
5. At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.
5. Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.
6. Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards

Of course, if your washer is setting on top a drawer/pedestal then you will need to take out the screws that connect the two and then you can lay the washer down on its back onto the pedestal

My fisher paykel DD S03SS dishwasher leaks from the top, & drain


The drawers should not leak unless there is a problem with the vacuum seal. Try cleaning the edges of the doors and operate. You should feel the vacuum is holding the doors. The seals could be faulty or vacuum system may be faulty.

About not draining completely - a possibility is the common drain hose after the U adapter being clogged. Remove the clamp and pass a flexible wire coat hanger towards the main drain pipe. If both drawers are not draining then it is unlikely the drain hose between the U clamp and the dishwasher is clogged. Also make sure the height of inlet water pipe and drain outlet is as specified in the installation manual

I have an error code of 5UD or SUD and the water is not draining 


If you are getting an F2 error message or a SUD error message, and are observing some water in the tub that is not draining at end of cycle, and your washi cycle is taking a lot longer that normal to complete,then here is what to do. 

This solution is easy, and will take no more that 15 minutes, from start to finish, and most of that time is in the --prep-- (getting tools, towels, etc.). This WILL save you a expensive service call.

There are 3 small 9/32 hex head screws that hold the front panel on. The front panel I'm speaking of is --below-- the washer window. 
These screws can be found::

a. if you have the optional washer storage drawer unit,, they can be found by opening the drawer, and observing the 3 screws (left, middle, and right side, that hold the front panel on. 
or 
b. if you DONT have the optional drawer assembly, then they are found on the front, bottom, of the washer, again holding the front panel on the washer.

1. unscrew the 3 hex head screws (9/32 socket or nut driver size) 
2. lower/remove the front panel, and set it asisde on some towels, so as not to scratch the front panel.
3. get something now to soak up at least a gallon of water that WILL empty onto the floor.
4. observe large WHITE drain cap, at front center of washer.
5. unscew white drain cap --WARNING-- lots of water WILL drain out when you loosen the white cap. Once all the water is out, remove and take out the filter trap. 
6. clean out the front and bottom of the filter trap. I'm sure lint, and gosh knows what else have cloged some of the holes 
7. wipe out the inside of the housing for the filter trap (observe lots of -gunk- there too).
8 put back in filter trap, tighten white cap, and put front panel on washer with same 9/32 screws you took off earlier.

Now I ran a test --express wash-- cycle, just to be sure all was OK,, and it was.

DETERGENT DISPENSER NOT EMPTYING ON DD603SS


Hi- It sounds like the solenoid on the dispenser is not changing the water diverter to the wash portion (cup) of the dispenser. You most likely need a new dispenser. Probably best to have a Tech out to change it.

All programmes stop before last rinse & spin.


I would suggest you check the filter.
Remove rear panel completely, locate and remove large black hose fastened to bottom of tub.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside hose,, check drain hose for partial obstruction, refit filter and hose.
Make sure drain hose is not kinked or trapped, and make sure outlet is not obstructed.
Refit rear panel, and test.
Please leave a fixya rating for my suggested solution.
Thanks.
