SOURCE: How to clean out drain hose

Believe it or not...I think it is fixed. I used a coat hanger to try to take out as much "gunk" as I could from the drain plug hose. I added warm water and then vinegar to the hose with a medicine dropper to help loosen the "gunk" I also forced air with the medicine dropper and I could hear it in the tub from the pump. Then I knew it was free of "gunk." I ran 3 hot cycles 2 with 1/2 gallon each of vinegar and one plain water cycle. Between each cycle I emptied the drain plug hose and drain pump filter. After the three cycles the water came out clean and not muddy. I also took a spray bottle of hot water and sprayed the "gunk" from around the seal to release it and out of the washer. I alternated with the spray bottle of water and vinegar applied with a small paint brush. I also noticed this "gunk on the stainless steel tub as well. I used the paint brush and painted vinegar on that and sprayed down with the hot water. I then did a load of towels and this morning my washer does not smell and is clean as can be...no more "gunk." what is that stuff anyway? Too much soap or softener? Anyone else have this problem? I was told by the service tech a few years ago that I didn't need to open that door because that is where they service the machine from.....wrong....I was to empty that drain hose from time to time. That was the first time I opened that door and the machine is 4 years old....

You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.

SOURCE: Washer still wont drain, even after cleaning drain pump line

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If you have managed to verify that the drain lines are clear from the tub - to the pump - the the wall, then this usually indicates that the pump has failed. It can be common for this pump to make noise and still not work.

Just to be sure: Is water running freely form the tub to the drain line when you drain the water? If not, make sure you double check the line from the tub to the pump. Is can be common for small articles of clothing (i.e., wash cloth or underwear) to get caught in this area and restrict water flow. Don't ask me how these items get between the wash tub and basket, but I have seen it happen.

The pump is usually sold as a complete unit and can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be listed under the "Pump & Motor" heading. It is listed as item #10 (part #8181684) and sells for about $71.00.

This is a fairly simple job that you can accomplish yourself if you feel inclined to do so. If you click on my profile and look under "Tips and Tricks", I have step-by-step instructions posted on how to replace a drain pump like yours. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please post back and I will assist you further. I hope this answers all your questions.

SOURCE: miele washing machine wont drain

hi friend,
If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many
washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub
that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's
attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the
hoses
from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the
large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator,
top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might
be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be
turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably
has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the
pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen
or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your
washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the
washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck
in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

* If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


* If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

My WA85V3 is having a 5E error(Drain error) . We have cleaned the Drain hose but still the problem persist


Hi shobha.
The drain error appears when the machine senses the water level is not lowering.
You've checked the hose, but there could still be something small jammed in the pump impeller. It may also be that the pump motor needs to be replaced (See below)
If you hear a humming noise when it should be draining it could be something like a coin or hairclip preventing the impeller (Paddles) from turning.

Good luck

Hello,
The 5E error mean:
Pump won’t empty - not draining
As usual with these error codes for not draining the first thing to do is check the pump filter but, on Samsung washing machines, the drain pump itself is often faulty. You can find how to fix this problem on youtube, just text it "Samsung washing machine 5E error".

What should I do?


Hi


Error OE means drain error, this occurs when the draining doesn't occur within 10 minutes. This happens due to clogging of drain hoses and drian filter. It can also occur when the drain pump is clogged. To check where the issue is you'll need to disassemble the washer and check for the drain pump, remove alll the hoses connected to it and clean all the debris. The pump is behind the filter screen on lower left front side of the washer. Also clean the drain filter and remove any possible clogs.

This error may also appear when the drain hose is not installed properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine. Please post back for any further assistance.

My washing machine showing an OE error before end of cycle


OE error is noyhing but an Outlet Error.. OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter. Check the hoses (drain hose) and the pump filter but if it didn't cure the problem then turn the thing upside down and strip the pump out of it check if anything is caught in the impellor.. if so remove it and everything will be fine..
