How to receive the best washing machine repair help on FixYa


There are a couple of things that you should include in your washer repair question so you receive the quickest and most accurate answers.


1. Model Number

The model number can be located on the model/serial number tag that is located on the washer.

Make sure you get the full model number from this tag and not the model number from the owners manual.

The model number from the owners manual only includes the first few digits of the full model number because they include that owners manual with many similar models of washers.

With the full model number I'm able to look up factory service manuals, tech sheets, wiring diagrams, factory service pointers and so much more.


2. Detailed description of the problem

At the very least give a brief description of the problem you are having with your washer.

Descriptions like 'My washer don't work' is not very helpful.

Describe what is not working. For example is the washer not filling with water? Maybe the washer is full of water but it will not pump the water out?

The more details you can give the better. Instead of saying 'The washer will not pump the water out' you could go into more detail and say something like...

"My washer filled up with water and started agitating. When I went to take the laundry out of the washer the timer had advance to the end of the cycle, but the washer was still full of water. I advance the timer around to the drain cycle again to try and drain the water out of the washer, but all the washer does is make a humming sound."

Following these couple tips can help you get a faster and more accurate reply to your washer repair question.

Err2. Water not draining. Can I do anything


Their are only a few things that would keep your water from draining. The two most common are a clogged drain filter inside the washer or a faulty pump/motor. With any luck it is just a clogged filter. Refer to your Owner's Manual if you still have it to see about the steps in cleaning the drain filter. If you do not have your manual you will need to gain access inside your washer's cabinet. There you should see a drain filter ensamble where you can remove it, empty the filter out and replace it. WARNING! Be sure to bail out the water in your tub b efore removing the drain so the water does not come out when you remove the drain filter or you will get a big mess. Some models may have a water shut off next to the drain filter, if so, you can simply turn off the valve rather than hand bailing the water out.

I have a Kenmore HE2t front load washer model #11047561604 serial # HLY1661717 I'm trying to wash a load of clothes and it's giving me a message F21 and it is flashing, I un- plug the washer and try to...


The F21 error code indicates a long drain. Here are some tips that should help you resolve this problem:
  • Check your washer drain to make sure that it is draining properly.
  • Check the drain hose for kinks and clogs. Make sure that it is installed properly per the instructions in your owner's manual. An improperly installed drain hose can prevent the washer from draining properly.
  • Check for excessive suds in the washer tub. Excessive suds can prevent the washer from draining properly and will result in the F21 code. Make sure that you are using the proper amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent to prevent excessive suds.
Remove any clothes and then use a wet/dry shop vac to drain any water out of the washer.

Arrange shallow pans and/or towel in front of the large item filter shown in the second image below to catch residual water when you remove this filter.Remove the large item filter as shown below. It is likely that you will find a clog in this area that is preventing your washer from draining.

If you do not find any clog or restriction in the large item filter and none of the other issues discussed above apply to your situation, then you could have a failed drain pump. If the pump is damaged and will not pump out water then it will need to be replaced.

Will not spin. fills up with water but takes a long time to drain. this seems consistent through all modes of operation


The most likely cause of this problem is due to the filter basket being clogged and preventing the water from draining properly. You will need to check the filter basket which is located underneath the washer for obstructions. Don't be surprised if you find lots of change and other foreign objects. To check, remove the bottom panel from the front of the washer with a philips head screwdriver (there are 3 screws). Once you have the panel off, you will find a cap on your right hand side. Don't worry, it's quite easy to spot. Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove. Make sure you have small container on hand as a few pints of water will drain out. Pull the filter basket out and clean. Wipe off the gasket on the filter and receptacle with a clean rag and replace. Thereafter, do this every 6-9 months as a preventative and more often if the problem repeats. You won't find this procedure mentioned anwhere in your owners manual, but it certainly should have been and has been addressed for the newer GE frontloaders. In fact, the new washers have an access panel to make getting to the basket filter easy.

Where is the pump filter on a front loading ge washing machine Model # WCVH6260FWW


The filter (or clean out trap) is located on the drain pump. To access, just follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.

2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.

3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).

4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.

5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.

6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.

7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.

8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe.

For reference, you can view some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer at appliancepartspros.com. If you have any questions about this procedure, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

probably a bad door switch, if you can take the door or top off and find the wires running to the switch take the wires off theswitch and plug them together by wrapping electrical tape around them and then try the washer. If that dont work may be a bad control board

Not draining properly and stopping in middle of cycle


Take off the front panel, place a cookie sheet or something under the washer to catch water and unscrew the knob on the right. This will allow you to clean the filter leading to the drain. This worked on ours.
