My samsung sdc1a809 dryer always giving drain water. Althought the water tank is empty. Checked the draining pump working properly. Any ideas !??

The sensor or logic board could be defect, when the logic board thinks there is still water in the tank. I would look there.

Frigidaire Dryer model #LEQ1452KS0 beeps 3 times in sequence. It will dry but many times it beeps while doing so. What error code is it giving me?

Hey Del Richard, thank you for your post!

It sounds like a possible issue within the control panel or drain pump. I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional to properly diagnose your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

I'm guess here that you have had the unit for some time? If you leave it plugged in all the time you can actually damage the batteries. Any battery powered (rechargable) device should have the batteries drained periodically to condition them to last longer. My guess is the battery is not holding a charge properly and giving spikes. You can take to battery store and have it checked or if you have a ohm meter you can check for yourself.

Kenmore elite oasis model 110.27032600 LF error. had an issue with the washer cycling through all the lights, would turn it self on etc. Had the repair man come out and he replaced the computer board....

The LF error means Long Fill.

When you start a cycle the water should come into the dispensers. If you have a good flow through the dispenser the valves will be okay.

I recommend checking the inlet water screens on the back of the washer. The inlet screens are located on the water valve. To access the screens you will turn the water off and remove the inlet hoses. The screens prevent debris from entering the valve and sometimes over time mineral deposits build up on the screens. This can block the water or slow the water fills down to a trickle. You can pull the screens out and clean them if necessary. Flush the inlets thoroughly with water when replacing the screens. If debris gets past the screens, it can cause the valves to stick open and an overflow of water can result.

While you have the fill hoses disconnected, place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucets to check for proper water pressure and flow from both hoses.

A common reason for an L F (long fill) error on this washer is the drain hose being stuck to far down the drain standpipe.

If the drain hose is to far down the standpipe then a siphon can occur which causes the washer to fill and drain at the same time. This will cause a long fill error.

I have a Kenmore HE2t front load washer model #11047561604 serial # HLY1661717 I'm trying to wash a load of clothes and it's giving me a message F21 and it is flashing, I un- plug the washer and try to...

The F21 error code indicates a long drain. Here are some tips that should help you resolve this problem:
  • Check your washer drain to make sure that it is draining properly.
  • Check the drain hose for kinks and clogs. Make sure that it is installed properly per the instructions in your owner's manual. An improperly installed drain hose can prevent the washer from draining properly.
  • Check for excessive suds in the washer tub. Excessive suds can prevent the washer from draining properly and will result in the F21 code. Make sure that you are using the proper amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent to prevent excessive suds.
Remove any clothes and then use a wet/dry shop vac to drain any water out of the washer.

Arrange shallow pans and/or towel in front of the large item filter shown in the second image below to catch residual water when you remove this filter.Remove the large item filter as shown below. It is likely that you will find a clog in this area that is preventing your washer from draining.

If you do not find any clog or restriction in the large item filter and none of the other issues discussed above apply to your situation, then you could have a failed drain pump. If the pump is damaged and will not pump out water then it will need to be replaced.

The washer is giving a code of "F2" & not draining properly.. any idea?

This code indicates a pump issue. First, remove and clean the filter. Then you need to check out the pump.

Whirlpool F2 = Long Drain error code.
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and “F/02” is flashed.
Press, PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the "F2 error code" will be displayed.

Potential Causes:
(1) Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
(2) Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
(3) Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

I have a kenmore elite top load washing machine. It keeps giving a code of ld. Ceral number is SM 9711024

Hello, LD stands for long drain.
If all the water isn't out of the unit within a certain time, the ld will flash.
Could be 2 things.

1) There's lint stuck in the pump preventing the water to drain properly or

2) You're using too much soap causing lots of suds also preventing the pump from draining properly. If this is the case, what you need to do is run the washer on full load with no detergent and clothes. Let it go thru the cycle and get rid of eccess suds. This is most likely your problem.

Best of luck :)

Front drain leaking

Your drain filter is not seated in properly or the rubber seal is broken.  Pull the drain filter out and be sure the area is clean and free of any foreign debris.  Make sure the rubber seal on the filter is not damaged or missing.  If it still leaks, call a qualified LG technician to assist in getting the problem resolved.
