Means your pump is blocked. Apperently there is no main filter according to the book .
It means you will have to open the machine and disconnect the hose from the pump and clean the pump. ( i presume the pump works?)
make sure you try to drain as much of the water by putting the drainhose low into a bucket or basin.
let me know what happened

My washer will not drain the water out their are still clothers in the machine


Sounds like maybe the water pump is messing up. make sure there is nothing in the pipe to the drain or in the drain under the washer tube. I once found a credit card had some how gotten under the tub and blocked the drain hole. it was hard to get out.

Washer does not completely drain to allow for spin


The most common cause for standing water in a washer is a clogged drain pump. Another possibility is a kink or clogged drain tube. Below is a youtube video with instructions on removing a drain pump on most front load washers including your Frigidaire model. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

I have a Roper washing machine and it will not drain the water?


Most common causes for a machine that won't drain are:

  1. Clogged drain tube
  2. Clogged drain hose
  3. Clogged drain pump
To diagnose, remove the drain hose from the drain tube and look for water in the tube. A clog will force water back into the machine. If this is clear, some debris could have worked it's way into the drain hose itself. Check this by removing the hose and inspect for a blockage. If both are fine, the problem is most likely in the drain pump. Many times, a piece of paper left in a pocket will work it's way into the drain pump and get lodged.

The washer leaves water remaining in drum after the entire wash cycle, it becomes stale and makes my clothes that I was smell. My father's front loader, GE, does not leave any water in the drum


Hello

Check the drain tube,it needs to be 30 inches above the floor.

Also if the drain tube from the washer is too far into the drain the washer will not drain completly.The drain tube should be 1 inch into the wall drain.

Also check for kinks or obstructions in the washer drain tube.

GE Profile Harmony Top Load Washer - Won't drain


After more thought, it dawned on me another possible reason. In my case, the washer is draining water, but it keeps cycling the pump on and off, thinking that the pump isn't working properly, and the washer doesn't go into its high-speed spin to eke the last bit of water out. It dawned on me that it could be that the pump is fine, but the sensor is lying, saying there is more water when there isn't.

I looked at the tube for the sensor, and noticed a small blockage of white soft stuff. I disconnected the sensor tube from the tub (in the back), managed to squeeze the blockage out, connected it back up, and now it all works fine (about 5 loads and I haven't seen the pump message)!

So if your pump is draining water successfully, but the washer keeps complaining and refuses to go into the high-speed spin, then perhaps this is your situation as well (or a bad sensor, etc.).

Note that I'm pretty sure the blockage is what ended up ruining my first pump. The blockage matches the color and consistency of the caulk/glue that was used to attach the sensor tube, so my suspicion is that too much was put on at the factory and ended up going into the tube, but not enough to cause problems initially. After several years of use and perhaps a bit of water mineral buildup, it finally became a full clog.

Finally, note that, as you may have guessed from the design of the machine, when you disconnect the hoses at the bottom, there's always a few cups or more of water in the two black hoses and the pump that it can't manage to push all the way to the drain.

My washer drains but then continues to fill with water.


There is a small piece that is inside where the water runs into the machine it is called a water inlet valve. I had the same problem a few months ago. I know the part is not that expensive but the labor was. When the repair man left I looked at the part and thought I should have tried to fix it myself. It was only a couple of screws.
Hope this helps.

Kenmore wacher drains but the allows drain water back in after cycle is done.


I think your problem could more of a plumbing or installation issue, rather than a problem with your washer. Please refer to the link below for advice on basic washer installation tips.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r389335-basic_washer_installation_tips

You may need to double check your drain line to ensure it is not too long, it is installed at the correct height, and that it has the required air gap to drain properly. Please post back if you have any further questions. I hope you find this information helpful.
