Check to see in the rinse and dry spin cycle if the pump is getting the said voltage to work . If not the fault can be from the controller unit. However if the power comes in then your pump and the drain valve is choked with dirt. Remove the pump from the hose mountings and clean it up . test from outside for perrformance, replace if bad.

You might have a loose connection to the pump or from the pump to the CCU Remove the top of the washer and make sure that the wire coming from the pump to the CCU is fully in and it's not loose

WL80T65C - error 245, can you please advise on this error?


The error 245 is a drain pump stall. Take the pump out from the bottom of the machine (2 screws) and clean it out. The resistance between the red and blue, blue and white, and red and white wires should be 16 ohms, if not, replace the pump.If the resistance is ok then clean the drain pump and drain hose to which the pump is connected.Clean it with normal tap water.Then refit it and check.In most of the cases cleaning the pump and hose helps.In some cases the pump has to be replaced/.----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

F2 message appearing on washer, what does that mean


Something clogging the pump or drain line. Clean out the drain pump catchment.

- Pull the suction boot off the drain pump, clean out any gookus.

- Blow through the drain hose starting from the connection at the pump.

- If all else checks out, replace the pump.

This is how to clean the drain pump catchment: Remove the bottom front panel to see a white plastic catch basin with a removable-by-hand, large facing forward lid (peanut butter container sized) Remove it and clean out.

Front load waher will not drain


Hi, your washer water pump, could be burnt out, or clogged up, but first check drain hose for kink, remove back of machine, locate water pump, device that your drain hose are connected to, remove all hoses, pump from washer, and clean, sometimes foreign objects get into it, and prevent pump impeller from spinning, also check water pump winding (coil) with ohm tester, place tester lead, one on each terminal on pump (motor) if you hear beep sound, pump motor o/k, if not, pump burnt out, replace it, but first remove pump, and clean it. after cleaning replace pump, try machine. you could put drain hose, close to floor, into buck, and water will empty by gravity, if water is not emptying, that's evidence your water pump is block, small object (handkerchief, coins etc.) gets into them, from time to time, first clean your water pump, `and check for kink, in drain hoses. . always disconnect power, before attempting any repairs. good luck.

The pump "stuck"


I think you do know that you did not properly flush and clean the pump after the last
time you used it......If it is a diaphragm pump, remove the inlet valve and make sure
the valve and spring are perfectly clean....Soak it in paint remover for a day or so
if needed.....Remove the retaining nut which is covering the outlet valve......Clean the
very, very small ball and spring....DO NOT LOSE....Replace all parts when clean....
Also check your hydraulic fluid in the pump's sump.......If it is a piston pump, remove
the inlet valve and make sure the ball is free and not stuck to its seat.....Tilt the pump
on its back and look up into it.....With a pencil see if the other small ball in the piston
is also free....Try to pump warm water through the cleaned pump....Without hose or gun......If it pumps fluid, replace hose and gun without spray tip....Test for flow again.
Then finally replace the spray tip......Chase out the water with the paint.....

I had a similar problem with the pump not working and the water flowing into the main drainage bucket instead. I had to disassemble the housing...not an easy project to reassemble...and found that the pump has its own smaller drainage tank with a float device, a pump pre-filter, the actual pump, then of course, more drainage tubes. The entire pump drainage system of components needed cleaned of accumulated, mucoid, slime! I cleaned the channel in which water flows into the pump's tank...located on the screen filter side of the dehumidifier. Then I moved to the other side of the dehumidifier and cleaned-out the entire pump drainage tank. Note that the pump's drainage tank only empties about 1/2 inch of water each time the pump activates. Thus, there is always alot of water in the pump's drainage tank. Thus, alot of time for slime to accumulate. Next, I cleaned off the float mechanism. I then cleaned-out the pump's pre-filter. Cleaning out the pump's pre-filter was paramount to the pump functioning properly and quietly! I checked that my pump was properly installed and NOT rubbing against its mounting so that it operated quietly. I added fresh water to the pump's tank several times to insure that the pump was working properly and that all slime was eliminated. Finally, I reassembled the housing...not an easy task! My pump now functions like new. All this work had to be done to insure proper function of the dehumidifier's pump system. My dehumidifier is only 11 months old. It is still covered by the one year warranty, but it is too expensive to ship the entire unit, as Delonghi requires you to do at your expense for them to fix it under warranty. You can be assured that I will check for future slime build-up to keep my dehumidifier functioning properly. The dehumidifier works great, it's just that it's high maintenance.

New cartridge-wont pump cleaner


The cleaning fluid "pump" is actually a small Mabuchi 6V DC motor that uses two small plastic spur gears in mesh to "pump" the fluid up a tube into the cleaning reservoir. Mine has died also and I cannot find a replacement motor. The cheapest I have found the base is here: http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_item_scc1_braun-syncro-clean-charge.htm Good luck, Lynn Livingston
