Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washing machine is 18 months old. It just quit with an E5 error and a tub full of water that will not drain. We made sure the drain hose was not kinked. We again tried a basic rinse and spin cycle and cannot get the water from the rub. We manually emptied most of the water now. GE 9150

This is a slow drain error.
There may be something stuck in the pump impeller - the pump may be bad - or the coupling.

Something is causing the water not to pump out of the machine - and it's one of those.

    The pump has likely failed. What is the full model # please?

    Thanks!

    You must remove the hoses from the pump and physically inspect.

Samsung error E5


I don't know about a E5 error; are you sure it's not a 5E error? That means a drain error or "water not draining" error. Check the drain pump and drain hose for an obstruction. If that's okay, and the dishwasher drains water, then you probably have a bad ECS sensor.

Error e1. washing machine will not drain. The tub is full and between the wash and rinse.


Two problems. Step one check the drain pump motor, to see if it draining the water out. Next step if the drain pump working you have a clock in the hose between the drain from the tub to the pump. Messy job witht he machine being full of water. I suggest take a small bucket and empty try to empty it out as much as you can.

WASHER WILL NOT DRAIN WATER KENMORE WASHER APPROX 9 YRS OLD


Does the tub spin without draining?

This JUST happened to me last night. Opened washer after a load and still full of water. Fifteen spins later, still about an inch of water in tub...
RepairClinic.com suggests checking the hoses from the washer tub to the drain pump for anything clogged in it. (WARNING!!! As soon as you remove one end of the hose ANY water remaining in the tub will come RUSHING out if not clogged. I was prepared for water, but not a rush of water.)
If there is no clog in that hose, remove the drain pump and check for something in it.
(My pump was burning up because some how a plastic stick got into it. I am waiting on the new pump now.)
If there is nothing in the first hose or the pump, see if anything is in the hose leading to the drain.

If not, they suggested something either purchasing a new pump as it may have quit working or something may have gotten stuck in between the tubs. This requires tearing apart and sometimes special tools.

Tub fills only 1/2 full but water keeps running as if the tub is not full. If the water level is set to 1/2 or less, tub fills 1/2 full and begins to cycle. The water is running into the tub but not...


Check the drain hose to make sure you have a high loop, ie. make sure the drain hose loops above the height of the washer lid before going to the drain pipe.
Also make sure the drain hose is not going too far down into the drain pipe.
You may be getting a siphon effect.

Water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW1: Won't drain


The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.
