It sounds like you either have something caught in the drain pump reservoir, or the pump itself has failed. The following link explains how to access the drain pump to check it:

Helpful HINT: Using a wet/dry shop to drain the tub through the drain line is strongly recommended. Especially, if the wash tub is still full of water. Otherwise, you will have to mop up about 5 to 7 gallons of water from the drain pump.

Check the pump and drain lines for clogs and check the impeller (can be viewed with the strainer removed) for anything obstructing it from moving. If the pump is damaged and cannot pump at the correct volume, you will experience errors and/or the tub will not drain. If this occurs, the pump has to be replaced. The following link explains how:

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

Won't drain. Won't spin.


Sounds like there's a blockage in the drain hose, or the pump. There could be a coin jamming the pump impeller. If the clothes are wet it's got to be a drainage problem...Good luck....Nomess

Whirlpool duet ht, motor running but nothing happening, says 48 mins to go, cancel does not work. Have unplugged but will not reset. Left over night unplugged, stiil not reset. Cannot open door to even get...


Our Duet washer (5 years old) would not pump the water out, and would not spin. It displayed no error codes. Tried reset, would cancel but still not work. I started disassembly (found the Whirlpool maintenance/ repair manual on line to refer to); everything seemed to check OK. Cleaned filter, fortunately the washer sits on a pedestal drawer as the washer had at least 3 gallons of water in it I had to drain into a bucket. As I went through the diagnostic test sequence found in the repair manual it was apparent that although the pump had power and made noise, no water pumped out. I removed the pump assembly and found the remains of a small plastic baggy fouling the pump impeller. It was left in a clothes pocket and run through the washer. No idea why the filter basket didn't stop it. Pulled baggy out with needle-nosed pliers and presented it to my wife (her baggy). Reassembled and all works great. No cost, actually made 1 cent on the penny found in the filter basket. You need a Torx screwdriver to access most of the panels. Reason for not spinning was the massive weight of wet towels and water sitting in basket.

There is a block in your pump, you have to locate it, dismantle it & remove the block. Plug off the wall first.

My Duet washer doesn't run through the entire spin cycle on heavy duty setting. Clothes come out of washer, naturally,WET!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seems to spin out better on the normal cycle. spin cycle dosent...


If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are
turned off and “F/02” is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two
times to clear the display.
NOTE: After four minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed,
then four minutes later the “F/02” error code will be
displayed.



Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make
sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

Whirlpool Duet Sport not running it makes clicks and it grinds


A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.=======
It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
