the best way to drain the machane is to lean the machine back prop something under it and then using a bucket take the drain hose out an bring it as low as you can to the floor. This will make it easer for you to open the front at the bottom an clean the drain trap ,it is possible that there will be a little water left in there good luck

Find the drain pump and check the sloppiness of the impeller, if it has sloppiness in the shaft it throws a code and some times it will work just enough to not throw a code but not pull the water enough at spin cycle...
They run around $150 online, fairly easy to replace.
The slowing of the machine may be a limp mode, so that you don't tear up the rest of the machine...good luck!

Why don't you simply find out what the FE code is alluding to? Go to web site or do a google search and then you can check for the issue further.

The problem would appear to be the water inlet solenoid valve.
The valve is not operating correctly for some reason allowing water into the machine even when switched off

Your washer is designed to purge the bleach dispenser between loads. For example, if changing from bleach to no bleach. The residue is normal.

Unscrew the bolt about halfway, then clean the exposed thread with a cloth to remove any oil or dirt. Apply Loctite thread locking compound to the exposed threads and then tighten the bolt securely.
Allow for the locking compound to dry overnight before using the machine again.

OE means the drain hose is clogged. UE means unbalanced or overloaded. This is decribed in the owner's manual page 31-32. Pull the hose from the back of machine and rinse it out. Then, check the lint filter on the bottom, front left side. Put drain hose back and close lint filter. Unplug the machine, press and hold the start button for 10 seconds to reset machine computer (not the on button...leave machine turned off and unplugged while resetting computer) plug back in, put on no spin and start the machine. It should drain.

Lift up the top of your washer and there will be a code and test sheet in there that will help lead you to fixing that problem, almost sounds like it went into the its own test mode.

Those washers are heavy! They have weights in them to prevent moving when spinning. Some use bolts through the bottom of the pedestal up through the washer and others use bolts down through the washer into the pedestal. Remove the bolts and lift the washer off the pedestal. You might need to get levelling bolts for the washer or check to see if the bolts are on the bottom of the pedestal. Make sure you get help to move the machine.

the drain pump does not effect the hot water intake that is or has to do with the water inlet valve , the coil may be bad or clogged try switch the hot and cold hoses and see what happens

some pumps do have an electrical connection? be sure to check for loose connection
other wise test with a meter

For the washer to spin, it must first drain the water out of the tub. Since you are hearing a rattling noise, and your washer will not drain, most likely the problem is the drain motor itself. The impeller wears out on the shaft, and start to wobble, and make a vibrating/rattling noise.

If the washer won't agitate the stator assembly at the back of the washer tub might be bad or damaged. The rotor is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the rotor fails or is damaged the washer might not spin or agitate. Check the rotor for damaged magnets or other defects.

If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump preventing the impeller from turning, or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

K this is a very complex job because it sounds like you may have coins (money) that has fallen between the gap. If this is the case, then the only way is to open up the back panel and look for it. However, I would not recommend doing it as the warranty will be void if you do. Now the stupid thing about this is a service tech will charge if it is coins lol. If it\'s the machine itself then it will be free provided it is still under warranty. Good luck!
