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: http://www.serviceforce.co.uk/pdfs/U23119.pdf) 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.

waht u need to do is get a bucket now take the outlet hose and place it into it low to the ground if water comes out then it will be that your pump is faulty and needs replacing but if it doesnt the only way to do it is towels on the floor and with a low pan place this under the sump hose which should be in the middle of your drum which then leads to the pump pull slowly but not enough for the water to push the hose of do this until empty the only other way is to take it outside and pull the outlet hose of this is the quicker and dryiest out of them all but do do the first part to c if the pump is faulty m8

Should be two screws on each side of the bottom of the front panel. Takes those out and push the panel up and out. (There are two "tabs?" in the middle of the front panel that lock into the side panels, so you have to push up and then pull out.)

you will have to remove the rear panel in order to remove the front panel. The bolt and clamp are inside the front panel.

SOURCE: Water doesn't drain
you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.

Tips for a great answer:
possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors
due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program
controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN
pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from
the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the
water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the
voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no
voltage from the controller. This means
the controller is a suspect.
water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the
inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the
inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL
SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level
to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is
most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must
be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for
rinse and wash.

link to replace the inlet valve:
after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come
in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated
so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check
the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the
valve or motor or pump.
