    Thanks for trying. Outputpipe cleaned, even draining into bucket works fine. Also cleaned intake, no problem there either. However, the issue remains: At the end of the drain cycle the dishwasher stops with the Intake/Drain light illuminated, and no further program step runs.

    Same problem. I checked the filter, snap on drain cover, and the hoses. There is no blockage. It always drains normally if I restart and sometimes runs to completion, or sometimes stops with drain light. Called a service tech out for $100. He did not do anything except look at a manual and press some buttons. He said not to use the tablet detergent, and use less powder. He said add some white vinegar. This all fixed the problem for a while. Now problem is back.

I own a lg turbo deluxe wf t7517te machine After the machine has washed the clothes it doesnt drain it Please fix my problem asap


you need to check the filter maybe something inside thum_cleaning02.jpg
Sometimes lint and other debris can collect in your drain pump filter. Keep things running smoothly by cleaning your drain pump filter occasionally.
  1. Open the drain pump filter cover by pressing on the center tab.
  2. Pull out the manual drain hose to the left of the filter cap and use a small bowl or pan to drain out any residual water (approximately 2 cups) that is remaining in the drain pump.
  3. Place a towel down on the floor to catch any left over water and remove the drain pump filter, by turning it counterclockwise.
  4. Remove any lint or items trapped in the filter by tapping it out into the wastebasket, and rinse it thoroughly with warm water.
  5. Replace the plug at the end of the manual drain hose and place it back into the holder. Then reinsert the filter into the drain pump opening and turn it clockwise to secure it back in place.

Whirlpool washing machine AWM 5100 has stopped going thru the full cycle.


My machine did a similar thing and in my case, it was debris in the filter. It took several clear-outs before the object appeared.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

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.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
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!)
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.
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!

Hi

Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while draining. The dishwasher is not draining properly. Please check for air gap on the dishwasher is not clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining properly and sometimes the drain flow is restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized (or stuck) drain pump. Keep handy large bowls and towels to soak the water out. Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to the dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections and switch it on. If the error still appears then turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs to cancel the error message. Switch the appliance off and then back on again. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

What is the F21 error code for?


Here is what the manufacture says about that error, my comments will follow.

LONG DRAIN If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, F21 will be displayed, the water valves will turn off, and the pump will stop running.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL to drain the machine. The display will be cleared and the machine will turn off after a maximum of eight minutes. Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects, and also make sure the hose from the tub to the pump is not plugged or kinked.
4. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
5. Plug in2_bing.gif washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.

Phil's comments -----> This error is usually due to something getting stuck in the drain pump or drain hose, typically after washing a rug with a rubber backing that has come off or small articles like baby socks that were not put into a garment bag prior to washing. To check the drain pump filter you will need to do the following: Unplug the washer, remove the 3 screws that hold the lower panel on the washer, they are on the bottom lip of the toe panel facing forward. Pull down and out on the panel to remove. You will see a white handle on a round container in the center near the front. Lay out several towels as you will make a mess with out them. Unscrew the cap (left, or counterclockwise) and pull out, the water will run out of the tub, up to a couple gallons depending on what was in there. Clean out the trap in your hand and anything you see inside the filter housing. Put the filter back in and screw in place. If you were able to remove something you may have fixed the problem, if not most likely the drain pump will need replaced. The drain pump is the black component right next to the filter you just removed and cleaned.

What does F7 mean on a whirlpool 6th sense washing machine?


Hi,
F7 in whirlpools means "Clean the filter”.
The following troubleshooting steps would help fix it. Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill. Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a program this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it. My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filters clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine.
