Question about Kenmore Elite 21082

1 Answer

Pump won't empty machine

The pump won't empty the machine after washing. All lines are clear. Drain opening is clear. The punp used to start, then stop, start, then stop, etc. Replaced the old pump with a new "improved" style! Worked for two loads! It now does the same thing - pump, stop, pump, stop! We rechecked all hoses and the inlet in bottom of tub - all clear! Is there a control board that could cause this? Could second pump be bad? Anyone know?? IS this why there was a class action lawsuit against the manufacturer??

I had this problem once...either its the timer u turn manualy or the bottom of the big round thing that spins it is not spinning..the spin cycle is a whirlpool effect that pushes the the water up a tube and out....also lay the draintube on the ground...if water comes out slow ...something is weak.

Speed Queen, cleared clog in pump, still won't drain


The clog may have moved from the pump to the drain line. If the pump overflows, it would make sense to check the drain line to determine whether it is restricted. The drain line is usually clamped onto the pump outlet and can be disconnected by removing the clamp. You can insert a piece of wire or a drain auger and confirm the state of the line. Doing this may prevent an unneeded pump replacement

Machine had been giving E20 error code - filter cleared and it re-started ok. When wash was in progress - jammed at rinse stage and all lights came on (except spin speeds) and humming noise and nothing...


E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

My daughters washing machine of 3 yrs old keeps stopping and flashes F 18


F-18 means the pump is blocked. When the machine fails, there may be an "electrical" smell as the motor has laboured. This is normal. Clean on bottom right corner and you should be fine..


Open flap at the bottom righthand flap.

Keep big bucket handy for water.

Remove clear plastic attached to black tube (slowly)
This will empty water from washing machine.
Once empty - no water coming out from washing machine then open big opener next to tube and remove any objects inside( coins, buttons and such)

Put back clear plastic filler firmly inside as before.
Close big opener next to tube.
close flap

Turn machine programe knob to DRAIN.
Start washing machine.

Should do the trick....

Good luck

Hi, I have an LG 1412RD washer dryer. I received the DE error message so opened the front to access the door lock and plugged in the electric socket which seemed loose. Now I am getting the OE message...


http://www.lg.com/au/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=WD-1412RD&matchedModelCode=NOT_MATCHED&searchEngineModelCode=WD-1412RD&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile#
Owners manual above. LG washing machine error code – OEThe LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn’t pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

Zanussi ZWF1437W E23


E23 indicates Drain pump faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty.

The service information also says it should stop with the door open.



Unplug the appliance and manually remove the water via the filter or front drain point if it's fitted.

Drain it into a shallow dish, tighten the filter when you need to stop the water (or plug the hose if draining via a hose) while you empty the container.



Once empty, try the door again.

Take the filter out and clean out any debris in it.

Plug the appliance in and put the machine on a drain programe.

Listen/look at the open filter to check that the drain pump is running.

Aeg 72630 update will not rinse during rinse cycle


If the drain lines were plugged, there may have been enough pressure on the pump to fault out. Make sure the sewer line is completely open, as well as the lines at the pump.
