Question about Washing Machines
Don't know if this is still a problem for you but if it is, then the solution can be fairly simple!
The blockage (congealed comfort I think) is most likely in the down tube at the back of the drawer enclosure. First raise the machine onto 2 pieces of 4x2 timber or similar and pull off the door of the pump hosing filter (bottom right as you see it) remove the filter and place a shallow vessel under the housing to catch the ****.
Pull out the soap draw completely by giving it a sharp tug when it doesn't want to come any further.
Clean out visible gunge, then using a suitable tool (I've found a long radiator paint roller handle ideal), ease the bent portion of the tool around the back left corner into the down tube. Moving it around should now dislodge some or all of the ****. Remove the tool and replace the draw up to the red arrow the, using a kettle, poor hot water fairly rapidly into the soap dispenser. The water and **** should be flushed through to the pump filter housing. Repeat as necessary until the water runs clean, then replace filter and drawer and remove wooden blocks. Repeat Annually to avoid future problems. Works for me!
