Error e18


Could be a blockage in the hose...remove the filter cover and give a hefty blow down the end of the drain hose (give it a wipe first). If there is an obstruction along the length of the hose this should expel it. If this does not help then you may have a blockage between the drum and the pump, when the filter is out, poke your finger in the small opening in the pump housing at approx nine o'clock and see if you can feel anything. Hope this helps, good luck.

I have the Kenmore Elite HE3t and the control panel lets me change the settings but the door stays locked and the drain pump (off the filter) keeps going but there is no water to drain...cleaned drain out...


Hi

If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Please check this video for cleaning:


Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

My dryer continually bleeps and says empty container or filter. My m/c is hooked up at back so container never fills and filters are clean!


When you say the filters are clean, do you include the condenser box? (bottom left flap on front panel) If not, take this out, it can be cleaned under a tap or outside hose. The float device in the pump reservoir has to be activated to give the signal that the container is full, there are a few possiblities
1.the pump is broken or blocked and the water is collecting in the base.
2.the drain hoses are blocked, take the drain hose out of the standpipe and blow down it, if is is clear you should hear the collected water in the base gurgle.
3. the float switch is stuck due to fluff build up from waiting too long between flushes of the condenser.
if possible put a very damp teatowel in the machine, once you have checked the above, and check that water is actually being expelled by putting the hose in a bowl.
Hope this helps.

What does the nd Error Code mean on a Maytag Neptune frontloader??


ND== No Drain.
You likely need the drain pump cleaned. Unplug and pull the washer out. Remove cover in back. The pump is attached to the washer's floor. Pinch off the hose from tub to pump. There's going to be some water left in the pump and drain hose, so get a large towel ready. Remove screws attaching black piece (motor) to white piece (housing), pull out motor and clean the housing and motor impeller. Wear gloves, as it's always a nasty stuff what comes out. ;) Reverse steps to assemble the pump back together. If you don't hear pump running after completing all the cleaning, you may need to check the wiring and/or replace main control board located inside the console. If the pump seems to be running but no water is being drained - replace pump. for Maytag MAH5500B the part number is 25001052.

Good luck!

LG front load washer OE error. cleaned filter need


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. 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.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

My washing machine works went it wants to its not drawing water ive cleaned the filter but dont know what else to do,


99 out of 100 washers tend not to drain water out due to blockage inside either waste water pipe (also called waste hose, drain hose and etc.) or circulation hose (the one between pump and drum). To check this lay the machine down on one of the side walls, remove the back cover (2 or 4 screws), disconnect hoses from the pump and ensure all blockages are cleaned away, all coins, small socks and other stuff is removed. Also you might want to clean the pump itself as at this point you're more than half-way through.
1 out of 100 drain malfunctions appear due to pump motor or the main PWB, but I bet that you won't need to replace neither of those.

Please let me know if there's something more I can help you with

Good luck

Water flooding out


Hi KellyW,

 

The dishwasher drain hose may be clogged.  When the dishwashr starts up can you hear the water running into the Sink faucet drain. If not inspect the hose that attaches to the Sink Drain for restrictions.  Also in the bottom of the dishwasher you should have a filter.  If this filter is clogged you cannot expel water.  Clean the filter.

Won't drain


The humming could be coming from the drain pump which may be jammed. The machine will not spin unless all the water has been drained out. If there is still water in the drum, remove the drain hose from where it attatches under the sink or tub and lie it down. Let water drain into a bucket untill the machine is empty. Switch off the machine and unplug it from the wall. Remove the hose that connects the tub to the drain pump from the drain pump and see if there is any obvious obstruction. If you can see the pump impellar, try turning it with your finger. If impellar does not turn freely, replace drain pump.
