Question about Hotpoint Ultima WD72 Front Load Washer/Dryer

Washine Machine pump

Water is drained from the machine and pumped away yet the pump runs and runs until the machine errors with a code suggesting "Water is not being pumped out". I know the water has drained and there are no blockages having cleaned everyhing through.

As a test I left the pipes diconnected and started a spin cycle (which kicks of a drain first) and the pump works fine but just does not go off. I suspect it must be a circuit issue which should tell the pump to stop after a set time?

    You my friend are a genius. Took me a while to locate the tube (Comes of the bottom of a white and black circular switch located at front of machine just behind the control panel on right hand side as you look at it) Anyway disconnected and blew through it and hey presto the bloody thing works. "Apprentice" my foot - Washing machine God! Thank you, I have clean underwear for tomorrow!

Sounds like a pressure switch tube may be blocked or switch may be faulty. Is there a switch on your machine? If so try pulling the tube off at the bottom of the switch and blowing through it to clear the blockage. (If you take the top lid off you should see a diaphram operated switch with a small bore plastic tube going from it to the bottom of the machine)

check in the manual for the error code most of washing machine if the error code is in users manual its means its only minor problem,but if the error code is not in users manual its means you need to call an service technician to not waste your money or time if you do by your self.

417 44152400 21 code reads e63 and machine not draining properly


Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

check in the manual for the error code most of washing machine if the error code is in users manual its means its only minor problem,but if the error code is not in users manual its means you need to call an service technician to not waste your money or time if you do by your self.

How do I unlock my washine machine? It indicates F 02. We rtried unplugging it, changing cycles, the pause and cancel. Nothing seems to wok.


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Keep getting F 02 Message


If this is a newer model Maytag (such as the Epic), "F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is usually an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, this means there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608545-f02_error_code

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to access and check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct the problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

Washine Machine not draining


Check the following to combat this issue.

Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).


If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Check water "forreign object trap". It's under the lid at the bottom of the machine. First drain water by pulling out the hose and pull out the plug. Then unscrew the trap. Have had this E20 error twice. First it was two coins there, next it was a big paperclip. Have worked fine ever since.11_20_2011_8_57_27_am.jpg
