Not sure about the drawer leak, but have some ideas about the refusal to empty. Have a look at the section in your instruction manual (copy here: about cleaning the filter (pages 20-21). Check the filter isn't completely choked. Expect quite a lot of water to come out when you remove the filter. While you've got the filter out, have a look in the hole it came out of. At the back of the cavity you should see the pump impeller (looks like a four-bladed fan). With the power off(!) give this a spin with your fingertip. It should be free to turn (although it's normal for the movement to be very notchy). If it won't turn, see if you can find anything jammed up in it. Keep looking in the same cavity. Somewhere about halfway back, usually on the top wall, you should find a large hole (this is how the dirty water gets into the pump). Slip your finger as far into this as you can without getting it stuck, and just check nothing is blocking it (20p coins are favourite problems here). If you've still drawn a blank, then without replacing the filter turn the power back on, set the machine going on a spin cycle, and look to see if the pump impeller is whizzing round. Don't be tempted to touch it, as it can rap your knuckles very hard. If it won't turn, you probably need a new pump. Replacing a pump is a pretty low-stress affair. It's more or less obvious where everything is meant to go. You can get a new pump from one of the internet parts suppliers for about £35 (it's worth shopping around, as prices very wildly). Hope this helps a bit. A.

Hi I actually have an EDW 1477 washer/ dryer. I keep getting an E20 message, the machine then beeps and stops! Any idea what the error is and what I should do? Thanks

This is a problem associated with the drum not emptying water - usually a blocked empty pump filter. Electrolux have an excellent support site. Go to:

Kenmore front Loader washer leaking from bottom

I want you to run an empty load, pour 3-4 cups of white vinager into the soap dispencer, this will flush out detergent buildup, it sounds like the unit has a buildup of soap and is oversudsing, the vinager wash will stop it from happening, if this stops the problem cut the amount of soap you are using in 1/2. If it does not let me know, good luck
