Some times if you wash large and small items the washer cannot get the clothes balanced enough to go into high spin. The washer being out of level can also cause this problem. Another issue that can cause this is the drain fluff/filter is plugged a bit and wont let enough water to the drain pump fast enough and when the timer sees that there is still water in the drum it adds more time to allow for the water to be removed. front bottom access panel will get you into the fluff/filter to clean it out. Make sure to get all the threads clean of sand and debris and use light oil to replace the cap or you will break it trying to reseal it.
Try out followings see if it helps.(if you know what you are doing.).
1-Unplug machine from power.Remove the fluff filter. Pour some water in to drum and monitor how quickly comes out amount of water poured in to drum. If it's slow there is a blockage between tub to fluff filter hose.
2- There is a non return valve on the machine. When you remove top cover, it's located back LHS. Remove the part but careful not the drop tiny ball inside of it. Check for blockage. Another hose comes from front to middle of LHS panel and joins Y shape attachment. Check that hose also for blockage. Try to blow air in it while keeping fluff filter open. If its blocked, needs properly cleaning.
I hope that helps. Thanks.
Check the pump filter which could be blocked or something like a nail has jammed the pump impeller. this may cause a mess as the water needs to be drained to access the removable cover to gain access to the filter/impeller.
Also check the drain pipe is not blocked. this can also be used to drain the machine into a bucket manually.
something has blocked the pump I susspect, turn off the machine!!! there should be a small cover or door at the base of the machine, have a baking tray and large towel ready to collect the water, open the pump cover place the tray as close as possible and if you have a small tube inside then remove the plug and drain the water to the tray.if its just the screw cap then unscrew the cap behind the cover anti clockwise, water may begin to empty so be ready to either screw the cap back in or replace the stopper as the water in the machine will fill the tray several times, when all the water is empty check the pump is clear by looking into the hole the water flowed from, remove any obstrustion ( if you have the tube you will also have a screw cap to access the pump filter) when obstuction is cleared, screw caps back in and put stopper in, switch the machine on and select a spin cycle,let it finish and end, this should sort it out.
1. Empty the drum via the filter / trap at the front (there is sometimes a drain pipe near the filter - otherwise be prepared to use lots of towels to soak up the water).
2. Check / clean the filter.
3. Ensure that the drainage pipe is not blocked.
4. Check that the pipe from the pump to the waste water pipe is not kinked / blocked.
5. Check that the pipe from the drum to the pump is not blocked.
6. Does the pump sound like it's trying to work? If not, it could be that the pump is dead. Pumps can often become blocked with fluff / slime from the machine.
the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the
washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose
there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained
by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and
remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and
water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something
shd be blocking your pump, check this out
It sounds like the water outlet is blocked. Same happened to me. Unplug machine from mains. Remove panel located on the rear near the base of machine. In the bottom right corner you will see the outlet pipe and the pump. Remove grey outlet pipe to get better access. Undo the large jubilee clip where the black pipe joins the drum outlet. Inside this pipe is a white plastic cage filter. Check to see if anything is blocking it.
Hi the likely problem is a blocked drain filter or a bad pump. Their will either be a small door at the front right or a removable panel under the door. gain access to the pump and beside the pump there will be what looks like a gas cap on a car. unscrew it and clean the filter. If you don't see too much that would block the filter then your problem is the pump replace it. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike
Hi, It sounds like the pump is plugged up. Remove the front lower panel and locate the pump. The pump has an access cap that you wil need to remove. You will need to lower the drain hose into a bucket or try and remove the water with a wet/dry vacc before removing the pump cap. (You will get wet)
Once you can remove the pump access cap, clean the filter out and check inside the impeller opening to see if it has any lint plugging it.
Please let me know if I have helped you at all or if I can assist you further,
First of all lay the drain hose into a bowl or bucket to drain off.
Then take off the plate at the back of your machine and you will see a pipe running from pump to drum.
Where it meets the drum there is a filter inside which you can check for debris. also take off at the pump and check inside pipe & pump.
Happy to help further if required.
