Firstly, without knowing the Model or make of your specific washing machine, I will need to give you a solution blindly...

Follow these directions:

Hope it helps :-)

Washer not draining


Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.

I need to find the reset button. It will not drain. This has happened before but I can't remember where the reset button is.


Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.First, check the drain hose to determine if it is kinked, twisted, or bent. If the drain hose is bent, straighten it out. In addition, remove the drain hose and check it for obstructions. If the drain hose has any obstructions, try to remove them. If necessary, replace the drain hose.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer Model#LSB6300LW0 that would not completely dry the clothes on the spin cycle. I'm not sure if the unit was spinning fast enough. I replaced the lid switch and...


It sounds like your Drain pump has either become clogged, or has burned out.
  1. First, disconnect the power to the machine.
  2. The drain pump is located at the bottom of the machine. You will have to remove the panel to access the drain pump, or you can access the drain pump from the bottom of the machine after you have removed the water from inside the machine.
  3. The drain pump has 2 hoses connected to it, and a wiring harness.
  4. Disconnect the hoses and wiring harness and remove the drain pump.
  5. Check the impeller inside the drain pump for coins, socks, etc. and clean it out if you can. Make sure it turns with ease, and isn't worn out, or rocking back in forth. If it is worn out, replace the drain pump.
  6. If after clearing the drain pump and reassembling, and the machine still fails to drain, replace the drain pump.

My Whirlpool Imperial Series washing machine will not drain. It was recently moved from another home. Where and what should I start checking first.... ?


  1. Check the voltage going to the drain pump, and replace the drain pump if it is found to be bad.
  2. If you are getting no voltage to the drain pump, your control board or drain pump wiring may have been damaged.
  3. If the machine fills up with water, but doesn't drain, this is usually fixed by replacing the drain pump, un-kinking and clearing out the drain hose, or cleaning the drain pump and hoses out.

Washer will not drain water frigidaire


Hi
If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Please revert for any further assistance.
Hope this helps...

Stops in cycle and says f 02


F02 error is related to drain pump block.If the drain pump gets blocked or the drain hose is blocked the error comes up,this is indication of cleaning the drain pump and drain hose.If the drain pump and drain hose checked ok then its faulty drain pump,its not draining the water so the error f-02 is showing up. error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Remove the wide tapering pipe from the drum to the pump. Inside there is a non return ball valve. Clean this and see if that helps. Take the front bottom panel off and open the drain trap,and see if there is any thing got stuck up,like coins,nails,socks or any small cloth etc etc.--------------While removing the drain pump and drain hose for cleaning,please keep thick towel with you.As you disconnect the drain pump from its connection,lot of water will flow towards you,if your machine is filled with water.So keeping this towel with you will help to control this water flow towards you.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Drain pump won't pump


Check on voltage to the drain pump and if present during the rinse and after wash cycle but failing to drain out, then the drain pump is faulty.
Remove the drain pump and check coils , if open then replace pump.
Other wise clean the pump and reset.
