You have a clog some where
Drain pump triac failure
This error code is displayed when the main electronic controller fails to detect the triac that controls the outlet drain pump during the wash cycle.
Check pressure switch contacts and connectors
Failure of the pressure switch or level sensor can also give rise to this fault code
Run test program
If failure persists after test and verification of pressure switch, replace main controller
Make sure after the fill the water level pressure sensor switches the program to go forward.If the switch is erratic the program controller can work without the cycle completing.so make a voltage checkm on the level sensor the spin motor and the drain pump to evaluate if the controller by itself is faulty.
If it spins and drains after the wash cycle, but not after the rinse cycle, it's the timer, if it never drains start by checking the pump drive belt, BE SURE THE WASHER IS UNPLUGED BEFORE DOING ANYTHING. It's the one that runs across the front of the washer just behind the front cover, it (the cover) can be removed with the two phillips head screws near the bottom of the cover. The belt should be snug but not tight, with gentle finger pressure at the middle of the belt you should be able to squeeze it untill it allmost touches, there should be about a 1/2" gap.
While you have it open look at the pump, If the washer is filled with water before putting in the clothes it will then be over filled and small items can go over the top of the inner drum and plug the pump.
fill the washer with watertake your drain hose and get it lower then the washer see if water comes out freely if so your problem sounds like the drain pump, pending on the year of washer i have found small clothing items in the drain hose and pump not a common problem but has happened
Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
