First, unplug the washer for safety. Then remove the three 7 millimeter or t15 torque screws from the front lowest part of your washer - which will allow you to remove the lower front panel. It will be easier if you prop the front of your washer up on a couple pieces of wood or bricks first, so you can get to those screws more easily. Be prepared for a few cups to a half gallon of water to come rushing at you for this next part: unscrew the white capped plug you see in front of you. This is your drain pump filter - and where you'll probably find a sock, pencil, who knows...(check this regularly for debris in the future too.)

Can I get to the drain pump or does the washer need to be torn apart? I cleaned out the drain plug- full of sand, filter clean, but I can't see the actual drain pump to see if something might be


Hi.

You can get to the drain filter without need for disassembling.The filter access is located behind the protective trim at the lower front side of the machine. Remove the trim and rotate the filter cap anticlockwise. Be prepared to collect the water that will flow through the filter. After cleaning the filter perform operations in reverse order to reassemble. Disconnect power before starting.
The pump is located at the bottom of the machine, behind the filter. Accessing the pump requires disassembling.

Stops in cycle, not sure if its when rinsing? I notice it stops and an error code of OE ?


This error code OE means the tub is not fully drained 10 minutes after the drain pump is turned on.This is possibly due to a clogged/kinked drain hose or the drain filter is blocked. Make sure the drain hose is clear then open the filter door located at the bottom left front of the machine. Drain the remaining water from the tub through the emergency drain hose located in the filter door area. Once completely drained, turn the knob counterclockwise then pull out and clean the filter. Reach in the pump impeller area and turn it with your finger. Replace the drain pump if the filter is clear and the impeller is broken or restricted and cannot be freed.

What is code F 02


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects(Actual drain filter location and procedure below)
• If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump



How to Check your drain pump filter for foreign objects:

Most likely, this issue will be the cause of a clogged drain filter. Use my procedure below to help locate and clean this filter.

First, you will need to unplug your unit and shut off the rear water faucets that feed the unit.The pump has a clean out filter located at the front, behind the lower section of the front panel, that allows for the removal of large objects that may have passed from the basket. You will need to remove the front panel to access this large object filter device. Now, Once you have located the drain filter cap; Push twits and pull out the filter cap that is visible. Clear out any debris and wipe the filter and the surrounding area with a mild detergent. If needed, wear gloves and use vinegar or bleach to remove odors, mold and mildew. Rinse the parts completely, if possible. Next; Remove the drain hose and clean it with a mild detergent or warm water. If necessary, again use vinegar or bleach to remove odors and mildew. Completely purge this hose. Once the drain hose has been purged, Reconnect the drain hose and filter. Next; Place the front panel back on the unit. Reconnect the inlet hoses and plug in the unit and turn it back on for a test run. If the cleansing dose not produce positive results, replace the drain pump.


Click here to access service manual for your unit. The actual component access procedures dealing with this issue will be on page 3-10 in the manual provided under the title"PUMP MOTOR". Front door and panel removal procedures are also described in this manual. This will start on page 4-1. Foucuse on pages 4-3 and 4-4 for front panel removal to access the drain pump and filter assembly.

I have a Fisher & Paykel dish drawer model number DD603 and it is not draining. Any tricks?


Hi

Dishwasher not pumping issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you’ll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

Please check the parts manual for your dishwasher, check the drain pump & drain filter's location from the link---

Fisher and Paykel Dishwasher DD603 Parts Manual

Please note that dishwashers don’t pump out the complete water such that heating element doesn’t overheat. Please post back for any further assistance.

MY AMANA WASHER WILL NOT DRAIN


HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
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).

2. Water Pump
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.

3. Drain Filter
Check the drain filter for clogs as well. This filter can become clogged overtime, preventing the free flow to exit the drain tube. It is located inside the unit, mounted on the pump housing.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line


NOTE-If the hoses filter,and pump check out ok, this will confirm that there is a serious within the actual control sector(Timer module or control board). It should be replaced i this case.
