Question about Washing Machines

My washer is not draining

I was on a chat a moment ago and my son closed it while I was in the garage. I've opened the washer, verified that the drain hose is not clogged, the fan belt is in good shape, the "iimpeller" moves freely and the switch is working.

The symptoms that initiated my request are the the washer filled up fine and went through the initial wash cycle fine, spinning back and forth. However, when the wash cycle was over, it failed to drain and go into the spin.

Help!!

Oil is leaking from the drain plug. The plug is closed but why is it leaking?


Sounds like the drain plug is somehow staying open even though it is in the closed position. The cap is just to keep stuff from going in not coming out. I would either replace the drain valve or just get a brass plug and put that in it

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Sud error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

F02 Error Code on Kenmore Elite HE 3T front load washer. Cleaned filer. Pump not blocked. Drain hose coming out of back of washer clean. Even held hose to drain in utility sink to make sure eliminate...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your information posted I understand you have the Kenmore HE3t washer, correct ?


Reading your description and factoring in all you've done and inspected, it may in fact be a faulty pump...(the F02 ultimate worse case) even if it is draining slowly it does not rule it out, trust me I've seen many of them.

By reading your post I've gathered you are pretty thorough so I don't expect you missed it, but I must mention it or I wouldn't be thorough either, I think you can appreciate that, have you checked the back-flow/check ball ?


If not, here's how...

Pull the boot off if you have not and just see if anything has got in there to obstruct the "ball" from working correctly. It is shown here...(this is from the back, but you can do it from the front...just not as easily...in my opinion)

Undo the clamp and inspect inside...if you have not already.

It's amazing how often I find this ball "stuck" or the bellows clogged with debris of all sorts of items...definately worth looking into before declaring the pump has failed. Good luck. Let me know how you make out as I said and if I can help you in any manner going forward I will do whatever I can.

I've also included a more thorough link of my repair tip below

My roper washer does not spin. The lid switch was replaced several months ago because it was not draining or spinning. Now, it drains, but does not spin. Any suggestions as to what it could be?


Check the motor coupling. It sits right between the motor and transmission. The coupling transfers power fron the motor to transmission. It is made of plastic and often breaks. If irs broken, the machine will drain but would not spin. Also double check the lid switch. Open and close the lid and listen for the activation of the switch. you should here it click.

My Zanussi Jetsystem Timeline washer/dryer starts its wash cycle, but when it comes to draining, it wont drain and flashes E20.


Have you taken the filter out at the front of the washer and cleaned it. Mine wouldn't drain but once I did that it worked ok.

I have a Kenmore 80 series about 4 years old and it is leaking. Had a repair man over 3 months ago and it did not leak. However, I see my baseboard behind the washer pulling away and ran a small load...


check to make sure the drain hose is all the way in the drain pipe in your wall. there should be a strap, or tie wrap holding it in place to keep the water pressure from pushing the pipe out of the drain during the drain cycle. if not, the water pressure will cause the drain hose to rise up and allow water to leak down the wall. use a flashlight. you should be able to see a trail of water residue leaking down the wall. slide the washer out a bit and run it. see if the water is coming from the wall, or leaking out of the washer itself. let me know and we can go from there.
