Hi, on what I will assume is either a Kenmore or Maytag/Whirlpool washer, you have a drain fault,
To fix, you need to remove the lower panel on the front of the machine. Unplug the washer, pull away from the wall and tilt it backwards to the front of the washer is 4-5 inches up, and take out the 3 screws holding the panel on. Once removed you will see a drain pump. Get a bucket ready. On the side or front of the pump is a removable coin trap. Turn the trap handle counter clockwise to unlock and remove. Get your bucket under the opening as much water will come out. Check the coin trap for debris, coins, socks etc. If you find the trap is full of stuff, cleaning it out shoud solve the issue. IF is does not you may have a failed drain pump.
Hello. I\'ve had 3 drain errors on 2 LG washers. 1 was a clogged filter. The other two were failed drain pumps. The drain filter is behind the little plastic door on the lower left corner of the front of the washer. Pop the door off with a flathead screwdriver, and unscrew the gray knob behind it. WARNING: All of the water in the tub WILL come gushing out when you do this. Have something ready to soak it up. Expect several gallons of smelly water and prepare accordingly. Once the knob is unscrewed you can pull the filter out. If you are lucky, you\'ll find it stuffed with the most disgusting detritus on earth. If you are unlucky, you need a new drain pump. Suspect this if your pump sounds like a box of broken rocks or if it makes no sound at all. The drain pump is located inside the washer near the place where you pulled the drain filter. For both of the failures I\'ve seen the plastic impeller on the pump has failed and spins freely on the shaft. I got the replacement parts from RepairClinic. To change the pump I pulled the (now drained) washer away from the wall and leaned it backwards so I could work from underneath. Don\'t drop it on your hands or brain. I seem to recall that the only tools required were a phillips head screwdriver, pliers for the hose clamps, and band-aids for the sharp metal edges. Best of luck.
I have a Splendid Washer/Dryer combo Model # WD802.
The water is not draining. I have taken the filter out, cleaned it, still does not drain. Gets to the drain cycle and does not go any further. Same in every cycle.
ok unplug the washer remove the three screws across the bottom front of machine if you have a pedistal willbe between the pedistal and the machine. remove the access panell you will see the drain pump it has a threaded cap faceing the front remove this cap and clean out the lint trap attached clean out and debree in the pump housing you can see. reinstall cap, front cover, plug in and test.
cant see what you tried to repair problem (dont see original post) but F02 is a long drain time. or innaddaquate drain. usually from a clogged, drain pump/button trap. ill assume you were told to remove the lower access panel, gain acess to the drain pump assy, clean the "button trap" of foreign derbis. if thats been done and your still having draining issues iehter theres something i nthe drain hose, or perhaps the drain pump impeller has been damaged preventing proper flow of water.
I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.
Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.
Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.
I have similar issues with my Asko W660. Once it was a key stuck between the inlet to the pin trap and the trap itself. I got it out by jiggling and poking into the trap area with a narrow strip of plastic. Mostly, though, it just requires a stronger grip on the door to the pin trap--the little handle is slippery, and hard to get a good grip on. Try making a grip out of a piece of duct tape, or grabbing the handle with pliers.
most times on the Lg washer the lint trap is clogged and something may be hitting the impeller on the pump and causing it not to drain. remove the plastic cover on the lower left bottom and unscrew the black lint filter at the pump. you will get water on the floor there is no way to avoid that. clean the trap and make sure there is nothing inside the housing to block the pump impeller. replace the trap and run a rince cycle to check for proper draining.
