Make sure and remove both the hose on the pump to look for clog and also right inside the drain hose where it meets the pump.

F&P MW511 HELP beeping and not draining


You have a blockage in the drain hose or pump,
Try to drain all the water out before you remove the pump

Error Code 37,
37. (00100101) Phase 1 to 6 - Pump Blocked Error ( No change in the water
level)
While draining, the water level reading from the pressure sensor has not changed
for over 3 minutes. There are three likely reasons for this fault. One is that the
drain hose or the pressure switch hose has been squashed or kinked and the pump
out rate has been dramatically reduced. The second possibility is that the pump is
partially or fully blocked. The third is that the pump is not operating due to Motor
Controller module, wiring or pump failure. This fault could also appear if the
machine is pumping to an unusually high head of drain hose or into an extended
length of drain hose. The Fourth possibility is a diverter valve fault or blockage,
water level is not altering as the diverter is stuck in the recirculation mode, giving
the module the appearance the pump is not lowering the water level.
Primary Source: Pump System.
Action:
1) Check that the drain hose has not been kinked.
2) Check the length of the drain hose and try to reduce the length if excessively
long. A 1 metre extension hose of the same diameter fitted to the existing
drain hose is the maximum allowable length.
3) Check for open circuit windings in the pump. (Note: Pumps are fitted with a
thermal cut-out which will reset on cooling.)
4) If the bowl is empty of water, remove the pump from the pump housing and
check that it is not blocked. Also check the drain hose is not blocked.
5) If the bowl contains water, then service the pump from the top of the machine
by removing the top deck and inner bowl. Bail out the water, remove the
pump cap and hood and clear the restriction.
Secondary Source: Wiring.
Action:
1) Check the pump harness is connected correctly to the pump.
2) Check continuity of the pump harness.
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
Action:
Activate the pump by operating the machine in spin mode. Check the pump
is rotating. If it is not operating, and Primary and Secondary checks have
been performed, then replace the Motor Controller module.
Note: Consider fitting Pump Hood Kit (WM013). If 5kg Smartdrive fit splash guard to
pump.

Sounds like an object is stuck in the pump. Does the pump activate? Does it try to pump out water. Please let me know.

Whirlpool duet won t spin continues to beep and


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW will not drain all the water out.


If you are saying that after the washer has finished you are left with wet cloths and water left standing in the tub ,then your pump is broken or as was my case I opened the back and removed the pump only to find a small piece of wicker that had come off my laundry basket . It was keeping the pump from turning .I removed it put everything back in place and saved over $380.00 . I hope this helps good luck .
