Have you checked the filter for blockage? When you're at it check the pump turbine for blockage and make sure it rotates freely. If nothing is blocked than very likely pump is dead or wires powering it have fallen off or corroded. If you hear pump humming than there must be a blockage for sure. Unplug the machine before doing anything!

My 17kg whirlpool x-pert is not spin drying


Is it emptying the water quickly enough? A blockage, or partial blockage on drain will prevent the spin starting quickly, and you only have a limited time on spin before the program stops.
Carefully remove and clean any filters if fitted on the drain - you must do this and don't assume they are clear. If ok, check the connections at the waste hose on the sink or plumbing, and in the waste hosepipe. Can you hear the drain pump running on the drain only cycle? a glug glug glug noise.... if you cant hear the pump it may be seized or jammed with a coin or button or pin or bra wire or zip etc etc.
If no waste water is flowing, try lowering the waste pipe on to the floor completely flat - water should flow out under gravity. If it doesn't, there may be a blockage in the machine sump hose - a sock or pants, etc.
Check all the basics first - water fill, water drain, filter clear, drain water flowing etc.... if all ok, may be motor or control card.

Something has clogged the drain hose or pump & caused the internal drain hose to split by replacing the hose you will clear the blockage the pump also may need to be replaced also.

Washer machine erroe code oe


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter.

Not draining It hyas on OE coming up and the book says blockage. I can't find any blockage anywhere in the hose where i can see it


Check for blockages in the air gap vent at the top of the sink. You'll have to disconnect the hoses and remove the small cap inside the vent cap. This item can prevent water from flowing over to the hose that allows the water to empty into the garbage disposal or drain pipe.

E20 error on Kenmore front loader. The water is


E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

WATER WILL NOT DRAIN OUT


Sounds like either you have a blockage in the drain pump or the drain hose is blocked.
The washing machine will run the drain pump for about 2 to 3 minutes to empty water from the drum then stop automatically.
If the pump is blocked or the drain hose blocked or kinked then water will be left in the drum.
Blockages are usually caused by buttons, bra wires or metal objects from pockets eg coins.
The pump can be popped open using simple tools ie screwdriver and any obstruction removed easily. The drain hose can be detached and a metal object eg knife dropped through to test for a blockage.hope this helps

Try making sure the tube that came with the dehumidifier has no blockage. Some Dehumidifiers have the hose screw into the side of the bucket and drain from there. Most newer ones have a plastic tube that comes with them that attaches where the condensate water drains. Good luck - Tech101
