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 !!

F21 code still flashes after i've unclogged line - reset?


if you cleaned out the pump by removing the center part of it and it still shows f21,either you didn't clear everything out of the pump,after you pull out the center piece stick your finger inside where the impellar is to see if you feel anything rapped around it,if it's clear and still won't drain then you need to buy a new pump and remove the old pump and install the new pump part number 280187 and it's around 120 dollars http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-MFW9700SB1/3048/0153200/W0705107/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Amana front load washer error code "nd". Door is


Hello there and welcome to fixya
From what you're describing it sounds like the drain pump is blocked. The nd error code indicates "no drain". If the unit can't drain it won't spin. You're going to have to slide the washer out far enough to remove the rear panel; be careful not to damage the floor. Once you get the rear panel off you will see the pump. Be sure to have plenty of towels & a small container to catch water. I am sending you instructions from the service manual to remove and replace the pump. Another possibility is the drain line is blocked or something is stuck in the tub to pump hose.

Water will not drain the fo2 code is on which I know it means its clogged but how do I get it unclogged?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display sud and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I keep getting a code F21 how do I unclog the washer


There is a strainer on the drain pump that is clogged. The manual does not mention this at all, it merely states the drain hose is kinked or clogged.

Under the front door there is a panel that is the width of the machine and is held in place by two screws, one on either side.

When you remove that you will see the pump and the the strainer attached to it. Unscrew the strainer (put a small pan under it to catch excess water) and remove to remove the junk accumulated.

-or- you'll need to replace the pump.

Also, attached to the panel is another manual that refers to the error codes you are seeing.

Error code 20


I searched other similar models because mine was not shown. I found a similar problem with the solution provided - took off the front bottom panel, detatched the pump and hose and pulled out the small sock that was blocking the pump.

I have a front loader. Have had it for 3 years always worked just fine never a problem. It stopped when I was washing a front door mat and has yet to work since. It won't let any water in to fill and...


If the problem is just the pump being clogged,,, its very simple. Remove the back panel, or the front bottom panel (if your model has one) and locate the pump. Make sure ALL power is disconnected, and all electrical parts are covered because once you disconnect the tubing from the drum, and pump, all the water will be let out. If there is nothing clogging the tubing, you'll have to remove the drain pump and take a look inside.

My Whirlpool duet ht flashes F 20


"F20" is a No Water Detect error code. Some of these error codes can be erroneous, however. The first step in troubleshooting any error code on these washers is to, first, unplug the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the CCU. If the error code returns after a reset, then you know you have a real problem. The following link explains the error code:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1491905-f20_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

This is one of the more involved error codes to try to resolve because there are so many causes. I suggest you start with the simple things first. Make sure the water inlet hoses are unclogged and water flows freely through them. You can determine this by turning off the water and removing each hose from the back of the washer. Place them in a bucket or position the washer where you can place them inside the wash tub and turn the water back on. Both hoses should have free unobstructed water flow. It is common for the sediment screens at the end of the hoses to become clogged if you live in an area the uses well water, or if you have hard water.

Next, Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. This is causes by placing the drain hose too far down in the standpipe. This creates a vacuum and the washer constantly drains as it tries to fill. If you pull up on the drain hose and hear a sucking noise, you have the drain line positioned too far in the standpipe. You need to keep an air gap in order to allow proper drainage.

Then, check the drain pump for obstructions. There is a clean out reservoir that you can remove the access the pump interior. Use the instructions I provide to perform these steps.

These are the simple items that you can easily rule out, first. Follow the remaining tips I provided you and if you still have questions, let me know before rating the solution. I hope this helps you.

Error 20


E20 is not an exact error code. It's indicating a possible pump out problem. Here is a few possible causes of an E20 error code:

1. Restriction in the drain pump

2. Failed pump

3. Water not pumping out fast enough (crimped drain hose)

4. Too many suds ( too much detergent or wrong kind)

5. Pressure switch (not communicating with control board)

6. Loose wire at pressure switch

7. Loose wire at pump or control board

8. Failed control board

My kenmore he2 plus washer is showing f21


"F21" is a Long Drain error. This occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. You will need to remove the bottom panel under the door by removing the two screws at the bottom edge of the panel. First, check the electrical connections to the drain pump and make sure the pump is running. Check the drain pump filter to make sure it is not clogged with debris. This is a very common problem. HINT: Before removing the drain pump filter, pull the drain hoses from the standpipe at the wall and use a shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain hose to get rid of all residual water from the pump and drain lines. This is also a good way to get rid of minor clogs. If you do not own a shop vac, be prepared to lay down some old towels and soak up some water. There's quite a bit of residual water in the wash tub and lines (this is normal). In addition, check your drain hoses to make sure they are not clogged or kinked. If you check everything and still have the error code, replace the drain pump. Replacement parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com and repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number in the search menu. I hope this helps you. If you require further assistance, please let me know.
