    Unfortunately I do not have access to the service manuals of Baumatic Dishwashers. If you can hear the pump motor sound then it is likely the impeller has worn out. The pump appears to be at the base and as mentioned by me previously, you should be able to access it by laying it out on the side.The part looks like the item on this sitehttp://www.espares.co.uk/parts/dishwashe...

You will have to provide the make and the model number of the dishwasher. Generally the pumps are at the base. You will have to disconnect the unit and drag it out on the floor. The access to the pump can be obtained by laying the dishwasher on the side. make sure there are few towels around to avoid flooding the kitchen floor.

SOURCE: Water will not drain away at end of wash programee

METHODS TO REMOVE COVERS ON EACH MODELS ARE DIFFERENT. BASICALLY, REMOVE THE LID FIRST THEN CHOOSE WHICH COVER(S) YOU WISH TO REMOVE. FOLLOW THE PERRIMETER OF THE COVER AND REMOVE ALL THE SCREWS SECURING IT. ONCE SCREWS ARE REMOVED, SLIDE COVER OFF AND INSPECT FAULTY COMPONENT.IF YOU CANT SEEM TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE DESIRED AREA, I SUGGEST A TECH. BECAUSE THE BASE WOULD HAVE TO BE SEPERATED FROM THE BODY CAUSING CAUSING FLOAT SWITCHES ETC TO FALL OUT. NOT FUN IF NEW TO IT.

SOURCE: Water will not drain.

This problem is often due to a blockage in the impeller blades which are located under the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher. Remove the filter and you should be able to get to the impeller by undoing a couple of torx screws. If the impeller has been blocked (this could be by something as small as a grain of uncooked rice), remove the obstruction so the impeller turns freely.

SOURCE: will not empty water, and stops before end of cycle

most common faults with dishwashers is a drain fault. Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage. Also check the non return valve under the filter and make sure the drain pump can turn freely.
Hope this helps.

Maytag front loading washer will not drain...


there could be a few issues, either the evacuation pump is not working or getting power to pump the water out. or the drainage pipe is blocked.
there is also a filter in the bottom of the machine that could be blocked
check the filter is clear, if you remove it be prepaired for a lot of water coming out. check the drainage hose to ensure it is not folded or blocked.

I hope this was useful.

Wixl123 does not drain after washing ?


Drainage problems can be caused by:
a) Blocked Filter chamber
b) Blocked Sump
c) Blocked Drain Pipe

d) Blocked waste pipe
e) Failed Pump

You can check the sump and drain pipe are not blocked by disconnecting the drain pipe from the undersink trap or waste pipe and lowering to a bowl on the floor. The water should drain out into this bowl under gravity if there are no blockages. Bear in mind if you have disconnected the drain pipe from an undersink pipe if youpour the drained water down the sink it will flood into your undersink cupboard. If this drains then you check the waste pipe or undersink trap is clear. You should also check the filter chamber if it is accessible on your washing machine (not all are). I would recommend you unplug the machine or take the fuse out of the switched socket before doing this. Drain the drum as above before doing this or you will get a gush of water coming out. You will usually have to remove a cover from the bottom of your machine to get to the filter chamber and twist it ant-clockwise to unscrew it. Check for any coins buttons etc trapped in there. If there is nothing there check the impeller will turn relatively easily by hand. If you still can't find the problem you might have a faield pump and I would recommend contacting an enginee

Wasing machine fills with water during washing and wont pump out filling the drum...


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.

Good luck!

Rinse fault f18


F-18 means the pump is blocked. When the machine fails, there may be an "electrical" smell as the motor has laboured. This is normal. Clean on bottom right corner and you should be fine. Drain pipe clogged. Follow insrtuctions that came with machine to drain using the little pipe bottom right. Then unscrew & clean rotor. pull out wahing machine and check drainage pipe at back is not blocked. Unscrew the drainage pipe from the sink waste and clear out. Also enaure pipe is kept high off floor and is not too long. This will help drainage and prevent pump trying to pump waste water upwards. If the pump is too old or worn out then it needs to be replaced. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

Bosch Nexxt 700 won't drain water after washing cycle. Switched to Spin mode, only hear humming noise. Drainage pipe is clear.


Do the following.

  1. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
  2. Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
3. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
4. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
5. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
6. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
8. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
10. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
11. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
12. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

Have hotpoint wd860 washer/dryer. Message fy05 appears, any ideas - won't spin


This code relates to a drainage problem and will probably be a blocked filter. Check behind the kick plate at bottom of machine for screw off type filter, if not there it will be in the large pipe from drum to pump at the drum end.
Thankyou for using Fixya.

Message: drainage blocked


scgawlik,
Happy to assist you,


You said,
The pipe in the back is not clogged, it is wide open. When we removed the cover for the pump in the front and open the valve, the water obviously drains out. However, when you put it back together and try to run it, it will go through a cycle and when it gets near the end of the cycle that when the message appears drainage blocked and won't drain.


The electronic type washers , can be unplugged and after 5 minutes restarted and the system is then rebooted. This resets the system and clears the codes !

If the drain is not blocked then you have a faulty sensor or a bad pump

Hotpoint ultima 1200


Kirsty - There could be an item like a hair clip Jamming the pump impeller. Or then it can be only a blockage in the filter or in the waste pipe or if the waste is connected to your sink drain check that the blockage is not there - either in the end of the pipe or in the sink connection.

Try disconnecting at the sink, holding the waste pipe into a bucket see if it will pump out then. If it does then the problem lies in the sink plumbing - if not then it lies in the machine.

If the pump and filter and hoses are definitely clear you could have a Pump, PCB or wiring fault. Hope this helps.
