Hi if you pull out the machine so you are faceing the back of it there is a flap at the bottom unscrew the 4 screws if you can lean the machine forward it makes it easier,then with a cross head screwdriver undo the big jubilee clip from the hose coming from the bottom of the machine you will find a plastic ball inside pull that out and then clean the filter replace in reverse order hope that helps.

Water fills up in the tub but won't drain from the washer.


Filter may be blocked. Be careful taking it out, you will get flooded. Make sure you have something to collect the water as it rushes out. Also check the main drain isn't blocked. If you know how, unplug the rubber waste pipe at the back of machine (not from the bottom of machine but from where it connects to main drain) and see if the machine empties by running spin cycle. If water comes out of pipe then it's the main drain....if not it's either the pump or filter.

My LG Tromm front loader has an OE error message and isn't spinning. First received the message during a full load of laundry. Had to drain the water from the hose at the bottom and finally got it unlocked...


OE is normally down to blocked drain pipes, mcalpine (connection under the sink) or a blocked front filter. empty the machine and unscrew the filter behind the flap at the bottom right hand side, check for any obstructions, icoins, hair grips etc are normally blocking here

My Estate TAWS800JQ washer Fills and agitates as expected but stops at the end of cycle failing to drain or spin. If knob is manually moved from drain cycle to rinse unit will agitate but not drain or...


Possible that the drain pipe is in a height where the water is struggling to lift.
If not id check for a block. I normally find a sock stuck in the drain hose which causes a problem similar to yours

Hotpoint aquarius wf100 has filled with water and wont drain. how do I drain water out of machine so can check filter etc?? Thanks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Following is my 'standard' word document, copied and pasted, which should assist you!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
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!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hi my zanussi zwf1432s stopped halfway through washing green light on start/pause button flashs wont do nothing else all lights will change when cyle chosen but will not start justs beeps then back to...


Hello Paula,
Do not know how many flashes but 1green/1red = 11 water pressure low.
2green/1red = 21 blocked filter or pump fault.
You would be best firstly checking the filter and make sure it is clean and pump turns.with water drained and filter out shine torch into filter put on spin/drain and see if pump blade spins if not then try and turn with long screwdriver to free out any debris then refit filter and check for leaks and try donnt fill fully until you are happy it can drain water.
Hope I was of some help.

Good Luck

Not spinning or draining


Remove the lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve your problem.
Please leave feedback.
Thankyou.

Spin cycle not draining


Hi-ya Brian
Probably blocked filter.
To locate and clean, remove rear panel altogether, locate large black hose at bottom of drum, remove from drum, and you will find the filter located inside the hose.
Check drain hose is not blocked also.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
