Hi,

Get the washer laying on it's side and using the access hole on the bottom carefully remove the screw clamp holding the large hole of the rubber housing to the tub drain (it will be obvious all other clips are green compression clips).Carefully work the strainer out of this flexible rubber drain housing through the large hole.Clean it out and replace you will be good to go. Also remove all the hoses and check for a buildup of gunk. Hope this will fix your problem.


Thank you!!

The washing machine will start turn a few times add some water but then stops and the light flashes


Sounds like unbalanced now - try to rebalance the adjustable knobs under the washer - we have to rebalance every few months because our floor isn't the straightest. We always know when its time because the washer won't work right.

I washed a rug and the back fell apart clogging the washer somehow so the water wont drain what do i do?


You may need to do more than just a filter cleaning. Your sump and hoses are all probably clogged too. Looks like you will have to take the washer apart and give it a good flush out.

MY FISHER & PAYKEL WASHER STOPPED AFTER RINSE WHEN I WASHED BATH RUGS THAT FELL APART. IT WON'T DRAIN AND MAKES A WHINING NOISE WEN ADVANCED TO SPIN CYCLE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?


Your pump is blocked with the bits from your wash. A handyman may be able to service the pump, but it would be a quick job for a tech. The pump us accessed from under the machine and can be inclipped like a light bulb. Inspect carefully first. look for small latch clip before twisting. Make sure the machine has been bailed out first. lean the machine back againt the wall to give access and to keep what little water remains, away from the drain/pump hole. Good luck....Nomess

My washer will not drain . I washed bathroom rugs that fell apart leaving excess fibers that I beleive plugged up the holes that allows drainage. A few gallons of water is still sitting in my washer and...


If your washer does not drain you need to check this parts.
  1. Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the lid switch(some models)
  4. Inspect the water pump
  5. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  6. Inspect the motor coupler
If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

follow the discharge hose into the washer body --- the trap will be at the housing the hose connects to --- not a big job. be sure to unplug the machine and hand bail the standing water out of the basket. keep a sponge and rags with a pail for the water in the trap and hose. no special tools, but it will be metric

When the backs of the rugs fall apart, they tend to bunch up in the pump and form a pasty substance that keeps the motor from turning. Since the unit knows there is more water in there than what should be, it tries do keep draining even when the unit is turned off (the buzzing noise you're hearing) The first thing you need to do is remove the lower front panel (the screws are on the botom side of it. Once you take those out the panel (with a little wiggeling) will come down then out. On the bottom of your washer, you will see a white piece of plastic. This is your pump where the remanants of your rugs have ended up. I would recommend a large bowl, towels and a wet/ dry vaccume at the ready before the next step. On the front of the pump, there is a knob whcih you turn counter clock wise to open. I recommend putting the edge of the bowl under the pump while you SLOWLY turn the knob. DO NOT OPEN IT ALL OF THE WAY INITALLY! Drain water out a little at a time. Once your bowl is full, screw the knob back in, dump the water and repeat until all of the water is out. Once the water in not flowing anymore, then open the knob fully and pull it out. You will see a white clump of the rub backing.Once you dispose of it, fill then drain your washer again. More remanants of the rug will wash into your pump. Continue this fill, drain pump clean procedure unit the trap comes out fairly clean (it will take many loads to get the last bits out from everywhere inside your washer)

Clogged pump on Affinity Washer


Exactly the same problem. Washed a small area rug that appeared to have pretty much disintegrated. Machine would not drain. Got the same e 20 code. Checked the drain hose, and it was fine. Reamed the house drain just to be sure. Drum appears to have drained, but now the motor runs, and no water enters the machine. Both water hoses are flowing. No further error codes. Nada.
