Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Our SHARP ES-S601X Washing Machine is 8 years old already. We were still able to use it until recently when it began to show an Error "C2" and then automatically shuts off. Is there an online site where I cold check on what that Error "C2" means? Or probably you could provide me those information so I could get addiditional assistance from any SHARP Service Center nearby. Thank you!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises but try this!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My Sharp Washing Machine ES-6515TS still drains even if the drain control is already closed and sometimes water goes out to the spinners tub.


PROBABLY THERE ARE THINGS THAT BLOCKING THE DRAIN, IT MIGHT BE COINS, PARTS OF CLOTHES, PANTY OR HANKY. SIMPLY OPEN THE BACKSIDE OF YOUR WASHING MACHINE, UNSCREW THE DRAIN LINE COUNTER CLOCK WISE TO OPEN THE VALVE FOR DRAIN. YOU'LL BE AMAZED OF THINGS PRESENT INSIDE THE DRAIN VALVE. AFTER THAT IT WILL BE OK FOR YEARS. I BROKE MY SPIN DRY MOTOR AND RUBBER BELOUSE, FUSE 3X. SHARP TECHNICIAN CAN'T FIND THE PROBLEM WHICH I DID AFTER 5 YEARS. I HOPE IT WILL BE HELPFUL TO YOU.---ROMMEL OF MANILA PHILIPPINES.---rtlagasac@hotmail.com
