Question about Hoover Washing Machines
Symptomatic of a blocked drain pipe, blocked filter, or a failed drain pump, drain pump with a broken impeller.
Remove the filter cover and check for obstructions. Attach a hose pipe to the drain hose, wrap it with a towel, hold the two hoses over a bucket and get someone to turn the hose on until you can't hold the pipes any longer, usually about 15 seconds. This clears obstructions in the pipe into the machine drum and filter. After checking the filter and behind it, put it on for a rinse and spin.
If the pump has failed, you can drain the machine by lowering the drain hose into a bucket or floor drain.
There are videos online on how to change out a faulty drain pump.

Testimonial: "Thank you will give this a go and let u know how it works"

I have this problem frequetly - it's an easy one to fix! Just press the programme button which changes the programme setting you want (on my built-in GSX4756 it's the last button on the right) and keep it pressed in until the beeping stops. Then start it again (will probably be on the rinse programme if it's like mine).

It sounds like the timer is bad. Try another cycle like delicate, or normal, or heavy duty. If everything works on another cycle then it is probably your timer. If it doesn't work and you have the same problem, then it is probably an expensive fix. Best of luck

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. This is a general remedy for most Whirlpool made front-load machines, such as Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag, Amana etc. The "Sd" or "F2" is the same as F21 on most Whirlpool washer's and indicates the machine has detected too much soap or a obstruction in the drain process. Chances are the pump itself is being obstructed by debris or some other foreign object as opposed to being faulty, although the faulty pump can`t be ruled out...yet. **This is also the reason for the "suds" message if applicable** Here`s how to check it and clean it... Though it being full of water may make it messy. A wet-dry shop vac is handy in this situation. **Turn off the breaker at the service panel or unplug the washer from the wall socket...safety first** 1) locate the screws in front at the very bottom of the panel below the door and pull the panel down and forward until it is off. They will be either 1/4" hex head or #20 torx head screws. 2) You will immediately see the drain pump in front of you with a large removable filter. ( **this is were a wet-dry shop vac and towels come in handy, also the use of the removed panel as a catch pan is beneficial...but you may still get wet** ) 3) Turn it counter-clockwise should allow you to remove it and inspect it and clean it out. Make a good thorough inspection inside the pump as well not just the removable filter. 4) Re-insert the filter and before placing the panel back run a test rinse/drain cycle to inspect for leaks and to verify the unit drains and spins now. ( If the problem still exist`s the Sd or "F2" or "F21" will re-appear. If so you`ll need to check the hose/rubber bellows from pump to tub...back-flow ball...for other obstructions ). 5) If all appears OK after your efforts, well your efforts paid off...pat yourself on the back. You just saved yourself potentially a couple hundred bucks ! Now You should be good to go. Re-attach the lower panel and you`re back in business. **NOTE: if this still fails to remedy the Sd, F2, F21 or if it returns immediately during the next drain you may require a pump unfortunately...part # 280187 available at "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" etc. **This however can also be caused by the back-flow ball inside the bellows which connects the tub to the pump. There is a large clamp which secures it to the tub, but if you remove it to clean out all the dirt built up inside, make sure you get it good and secure when putting it back.** Let me know how it goes and if you require further assistance.
