Just fixed mine, only I did not have to take it all a part. Just tip it over and reached in thru the opening in the bottom. Took the clamp loose with a phillips screwdriver and pulled the rubber off that contains the filter. Stuck my hand in the opening and pushed up on the filter from the bottom on the rubber container. Out came the filter and I cleaned it and pushed back down inside until it was past the lip that held it in place. Works great, took about 10 mins., not bad for a woman, huh. Thanks for the info, could not have done without your diagram and information.

SOURCE: water constantly in pin trap

I had this problem and found out there was something stuck in the drain hose.  It also made my clothes smell sour.  Unhook your drain hose stretch it out straight, run water through and maybe snake it if need be.

HE-2 error what is it mean

Hi, on what I will assume is either a Kenmore or Maytag/Whirlpool washer, you have a drain fault,
To fix, you need to remove the lower panel on the front of the machine. Unplug the washer, pull away from the wall and tilt it backwards to the front of the washer is 4-5 inches up, and take out the 3 screws holding the panel on. Once removed you will see a drain pump. Get a bucket ready. On the side or front of the pump is a removable coin trap. Turn the trap handle counter clockwise to unlock and remove. Get your bucket under the opening as much water will come out. Check the coin trap for debris, coins, socks etc. If you find the trap is full of stuff, cleaning it out shoud solve the issue. IF is does not you may have a failed drain pump.

Error code 20

Is it an E20 error code? The E20 error code is usually something clogging the pump system follow these steps to check. From the bottom and back panel you can access the drain hose/pump/coin catch. With a pair of pliers you can remove the clamp holding smaller end of the rubber coin catch to the tub, with a Phillips screw driver you can remove the larger clamp of the rubber coin catch to the tub. From the back panel you again use your pliers to remove the clamp to the drain line, and finally with a Philips screw driver remove the two screws holding the pump to the bottom of the washer. Oh yes, do not forget to unplug the wire from the pump. Now pull the pump out with the black rubber boot still attached. Mark the orientation of the pump to the boot with a sharpie pen, and remove the last clamp. Now look inside the black rubber boot and gently remove the plastic basket inside and remove any thing that does not belong, reassemble ant test.

The drain pipe fills so fast that the water over flows. My last washer never did this

The drain pipe may be partially clogged with lint. The old washer pump may have been a little weaker and didn't fill the pipe so fast.

Maybe someone can use an awger on the drain ptpe ...have to clean down to the J trap at the floor.

Hope this helps

The problem is a clogged coin trap. The coin trap is located below the front loading door near the right front side. To gain access is the problem. It is in a bad location and this will take a couple of hours to fix at a minimum. Tools needed, a phillips screwdriver, short handled perfered. A large set of channel locks. A set of flush cutters. Purchase a couple of hose clamps to replace the cheap factory ones. Unplug the machine. Disconnect the hot and cold water lines. Remove all water from inside the washer. Turn the washer on its side. Looking at the bottom you will see a black rubber device, with a grey hose (the drain)running into it, a white device hung onto it, and the top of the corrigated black rubber device is attached to the bottom of the drum. Disconnect all connections. This is not fun. Remove the black unit. Look down inside the unit and you will see a clear cylinder (usually filled with coins and lint) In short the clog which is not allowing the machine to pump out its water. Clean the unit and keep the coins for your trouble. Reinstall the black unit.(coin trap). Make sure the green clamps are properly seated or better yet replace them with the hose clamps. If you are unsure about the sizes take the coin trap to the local car parts store and purchase a couple. Make sure the rubber parts are replaced flushly or the repair will leak and you will get to fix it again, after swimming in a bit of soapy water when you sit the unit up again. Reconnect the hoses and power plug. Run a short cycle and check for leaks, by removing the back of the machine and checking for water leaks. Good luck!!!

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.

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

Washer won't spin

Did you check that the door lock switch is working?
See this thread:

If it's not the door-lock switch, you need a new speed control board.

Front load washer not draining

If the water is not draining the firt thing to check is the pump. take the 2 screws off the front bottom panel and remove it. get a bunch of towels or a wet dry vac ready. the pump should be on the right attatched to the drain hose and the coin/debris cather(a black rubber bladder. Remove the drain hose (use pliers on the clamp and pull the hose off. A lot of water will come out as well. Remove the rubber bladder(coin catcher) clamp with a philips head screw driver and pull it off the pump.Un plug the pump remove the monting screws. Check the pump and the bladder for debris. Look in the pump and make sure the impeller is not damaged. spin the impeller and make sure it moves. if the impeller is damaged then the pump need to be replaced. Assuming everything seems ok reassemble and run an empty load with the dial set just before final spin. If the pump is working you should hear it, and possible feel water moving through the discharge hose.
