"Dr" error code

My washer keeps stoping just before it is able to completely drain. The "dr" shows up and then to keep it going i have to press the start button again and then it adds more time on the cycle and keeps draining. This usally happens once or twice per load. I always empty the lint traps and i don't over fill it. What am i missing?

    I have the exact same problem. It makes a horrible crunching noise and displays "dr" and won't drain

    The machine goes through a normal wash cycle
    from 53 minutes to 28 minutes. At 28 minutes the machine starts to drain for
    about 5-6 minutes, but the timer stays at 28 minutes. At which time a
    "dr" code appears, the machine beeps and the machine stops.


    If the machine is reset, it starts at 22 minutes
    and goes through the 2nd wash cycle. The machine works fine from 22 minutes to
    13 minutes, then it repeats the above process.


    When I manually set the machine for the Rinse
    cycle, it starts at 13 minutes and drains for 3 minutes, then stop at 10


    If I set the machine for Spin, it starts at 13
    minutes and the timer stops at 10 minutes, but the water continues tickling out
    for another 5-6 minutes before the "dr" code appears and the machine


    As a test, I manually set the machine on Spin about 20 times. Once ALL
    the water is drained the machine will spin, and spin and spin; Until a new load
    is started..

Your pump is either bound up with something in the chamber, or there is something in your discharge hose blocking the water from escaping.
Look on the back of the washer, and unscrew the circular port in the bottom right corner. (Keep an 8x13 baking pan underneath, water will escape once you open the chamber). Check if there is anything in the chamber that is binding the impeller. If not, remove the metal back and check that all three of the hose connections to your pump are open and have no debris/ change, etc. If there is nothing binding your pump in any of those locations, your pump motor may be failing. I would suggest calling someone out to assist you.

    Glad we found this site. Mine was doing the same thing and we tried this suggestion and then for good measure emptied the lint trap inside and it worked like a charm. Thanks Chris for putting this on here.

It was the kink in my hose.
i just moved my washer to a different location in my apartment, and suddenly started to get the "dr" message, and as others have described, it would get to 13 mins and then stop. i came here to find out what "dr" meant, then upon reexamining the back, i found that there was a big old kink in the base of the hose where it met the machine. i finally figured out what the hooks on the upper back were for. i unkinked the hose, inserted it into one of the hooks to keep it straight, and suddenly the drain which had been a trickle turned into a blast. problem solved. (for me that is.) my washer is now happily on its way to the end of the cycle.

Washer isn't draining properly. Cleaned out filter but keeps flashing numbers.

My duet is also doing that. The error code that I get is F02. If you press the cancel button twice, it will cancel the error code. Then press and hold the start button until the door locks again. It should continue on the cycle. If not, press cancel once and put the dial on 'drain and spin' to complete the cycle. I think the problem is probably the computer control module, but I am hesitant to spend the money on the part which is about $150 without labor, because my washer is 7 1/2 years old. Replacing the part does not look hard to do. There is a You-Tube video that shows how to take your duet apart and put it back together which shows the computer control module.

I started a wash cycle, needed to add more laundry, press the pause/cancel buttom twice, now I can't start it again. When I press the start buttom everything goes blank, all lights go off

Remove the power plug and keep aside. Keep the sart button pressed on to discharge. After 15 minutes switch on the washer while holding the pause/cancel button.
If the set does not come back to life it iis possible that the main board has encountered some errors.
Repeat the procedure after some time.

Maytag top loadind washer. Won't stop filling up.

Make sure your drain hose to the drain pipe is higher than the water in the tub if not it will keep running and going out the drain.
Also try taking the hose off the level switch and blow in it to be sure it's not stoped up. If is it won't let the level sw cut off. air should go through it. Good luck
When you unpluged the power and it ddn't keep runing the water valve should be ok.
