Well here i am,back again.Same problem kind of.yesterday we took off and descaled all pipes/filter etc.It seemed to solve the problem as the first wash worked perfectly,then on the next wash.......F18

Have you tried a boil wash ?
Also check that the drain pipe has no kinks or sharp bends in it.
I know we managed to get the drain pipe cleared :-)
But the next step may be to check that the waste pipe you are connecting to is not also scaled up.
If you can take the drain pip off again, check and see if the pipework you are connecting to is also clear.
Other than that, this may actually be a failing drain pump.

Check the rest of your pipes are clear in the house (where the machine is plumbed into).
Then do a boil wash - hottest wash you can, NO SOAP and empty drum.
Hopefully that will let the machine clear everything else out.

Wixl123 does not drain after washing ?

Drainage problems can be caused by:
a) Blocked Filter chamber
b) Blocked Sump
c) Blocked Drain Pipe

d) Blocked waste pipe
e) Failed Pump

You can check the sump and drain pipe are not blocked by disconnecting the drain pipe from the undersink trap or waste pipe and lowering to a bowl on the floor. The water should drain out into this bowl under gravity if there are no blockages. Bear in mind if you have disconnected the drain pipe from an undersink pipe if youpour the drained water down the sink it will flood into your undersink cupboard. If this drains then you check the waste pipe or undersink trap is clear. You should also check the filter chamber if it is accessible on your washing machine (not all are). I would recommend you unplug the machine or take the fuse out of the switched socket before doing this. Drain the drum as above before doing this or you will get a gush of water coming out. You will usually have to remove a cover from the bottom of your machine to get to the filter chamber and twist it ant-clockwise to unscrew it. Check for any coins buttons etc trapped in there. If there is nothing there check the impeller will turn relatively easily by hand. If you still can't find the problem you might have a faield pump and I would recommend contacting an enginee

Hi there,
It sounds like the shaft seal on the pump itself is worne out, between the impeller and the electric motor. I have replaced a few in my time. If you are sure the filter is seating properly then I think its the pump. i hope this helps you.

Goes through washing cycle then will not pump out, just makes like a low humming noise,when you drain it out with pipe at front of machine starts to run again ,checked filter in front of machine, outlet...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Have you managed to check that the drain pump is functioning correctly? Here is the final bit of my guidance notes on checking filters AND motors ;-0)
Disconnect power
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!

My hoover soft wave wash and dryer spins normally but will not drain. the hose is clear, also the waste pipe?

If you have not checked the filter, then you must do so, it is usually located at the bottom front left of washer.
If it has a screw in the handle, then undo the screw first, then unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.
Please rate my solution.
