Question about LG WM2688HWM TROMM SteamWasher

1 Answer

Water fills and will not drain

An area rug was washed.  The rubber backing came loose and is clogging the water outlet. We cleaned the tub drained water from the small hose near the filter(it drained very slowly only when keeping the line clear by blowing into it) and emptied the filter. On the second try the water filled (and continued to fill halfway up the window until we shut water off) We ran the wash cycle for a short time and drained water from the drum over night. The filter had nothing in it but on close observation with a flashlight under the stainless drum there is about 1/2" to 1 "of residue under the drum. How can this be cleaned out. We also called for a certified service tech but were told it would take 2 weeks to get one out to us. Not a very good response considering we live in a major city.

Washed a small bath rug in the machine. The piece of rug said it was washing machine safe. The rug broke apart as I was washing it and now the washing maching will not drain. I have to open the bottom...


This becomes a long drawn out process in which you have to remove the pump and the entire drain line and wash all the backing out of the machine also you have to remove the lines that go from the tub to the pump as well and even after you finish cleaning out the drain system you still will have more pieces stuck inside the tub area that you have to clean out as well. Easiest way take the machine outside or to an area you can use a hose on the unit where after you disassemble the entire pump area that you can wash the tub out of all the small pieces of the rug backing I had the unfortunate repair of doing this to someones rubber backed rug cept it took all the rubber off the back of the rug. It took about 3 hours with hooking and rehooking the drain lines and unclogging them over and over due to this unit I was working on was in a basement and no access to a hose If you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick
p.s do this repair yourself a repair technician would charge about 200 to repair the unit due to the amount of time

Tip

The washing machine spins but will not drain?


To trouble shoot this problem please check this possibilities:-- The first thing to check out in this problem is check the draining line in the washing machine. Check if the drain line is got clogged or its getting blocked by any metal or dust object in the pump. Also check in between the inner clothes tub and the outer tub which holds the water. If the blockage is between the tubs, then it may clog the drain hose which is connected to the pump. If you notice blockage in the pump, then remove the hoses from the pump and clear the blocking material by removing it out.
But if the pump is clean and clear and hoses are also seen clean then the other part to check is
outer tub part, for that you will need to open the washer's main access panel and remove the rubber material hose connecting the pump .the hose is exactly connected to the bottom area of the outer tub. If you notice any blockage/clogging in that area you can remove it with the help of pliers.
If you are not able to remove the clog or if you can see but its seen in very inner area then you need to take the agitator out, after removing the agitator remove the top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. You will require some special tools to do the job in this case.
But if inner tub, agitator and other parts looks clean and clear then you need to check the drain pump. it may be leaking or it may be worn out and got loose.
This is the basic checking and troubleshooting you can do it yourself to resolve this issue of not draining.

We have a GE front load washer WCVH6800. Recently we loaded some throw rugs into the washer. These rugs released a large amount of material. We cleaned the pump filter 3 times and it now seems clean. ...


The water inside the tub will drain out when the pump filter is removed from the pump housing and flood the base of the washer. If not, the tub drain hose is clogged preventing the water to drain into the pump housing then out.

The door is locked because the foam switch in the pressure switch is open due to the presence of water after the unsuccessful drain cycle.

Disconnect the washer from the power outlet. Remove the three screws holding the lower front access panel to the cabinet and pull the panel down to access the pump housing.

Squeeze the clamp that hold the tub drain hose to the pump housing and slide it back. Prepare a pan to catch the water to prevent flooding. The tub drain hose maybe difficult to remove and you may need to insert something under it to break the seal and pull it off.

Remove the tub drain hose from the tub by squeezing the securing clamp and pulling it off the tub drain outlet. Clear the hose and the tub drain outlet from any debris.

Reinstall the tub drain hose and manually unlock the door before reinstalling the access panel. Reach and pull the release ring behind and up the right side of the front panel, then open the door.

Hi..we washed a rubber backed rug and the rubber came off and the water will not fully drain. we washed several empty cycles since with no results


You will have to take the hoses off between the tub and pump, and the pump and weall drain. They are packed with rubber. Oh, don't forget to clean the inside of the pump too. Run clean water through all hoses and the pump before reinstalling and you should be fine. Don't wash rubber backed rugs in washers unless you go to the laundry mat. This should be put in the maintenance guide of your washer book, but I've yet to see it.

F-21 drainage problem. put a rubber backed rug in washer which came off in little pieces. I'm afraid they clog the pump or something else, the drainage hose is clear


"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely (as you may suspect) you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

For future reference, rugs that have a rubber backing may be a bad idea to put in these washers, because of the problem you just encountered, and because of the amount of dirt (especially sand) that they can hold. You may be better off washing rugs at a laundromat.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appar until the pump is replaced.

Washer won't drain -- clean the pump


First I would try to flush the pump, if the tub is still full of water. To flush the pump, take a garden hose sprayer and fit it tight into the drain hose. Give it a short shot of water, then stick the drain hose back into the drain. Put the washer on spin and see if any water comes out. You may have to do this more than once to clear the pump. If that does not work, siphon the water out of the washer and disconnect the hose from the pump to the drum. Clear the hose the best you can, pour a little water into the drum to check it. Check the pump too, take it apart if you have to.

Clogged pump on Affinity Washer


Exactly the same problem. Washed a small area rug that appeared to have pretty much disintegrated. Machine would not drain. Got the same e 20 code. Checked the drain hose, and it was fine. Reamed the house drain just to be sure. Drum appears to have drained, but now the motor runs, and no water enters the machine. Both water hoses are flowing. No further error codes. Nada.
