Ask Your Own Appliance Question

If you're getting a grinding noise when the washer is draining, you'll want to remove the drain catch and see if there is any debris inside you need to remove. There is a drain catch inside the washer that you will want to access and clean if you're getting this drain error. To access the drain catch, tip the machine backwards and lean it against the wall at a 45 degree angle or so. Remove the 3 screws along the bottom of the lower front panel. The lower front panel will then pull down and off. There is a 3" diameter plastic twist cap directly under the tub mounted to the floor. This is your drain cap. Unscrew the cap and clear any debris inside the drain catch. If you find nothing and the drain hose is clear, replace your drain pump. The pump is usually about $100 or so. Below is a link to the drain pump for your model.
