Question about Washing Machines
The drawer won't open. I think the conditioner filter is sticking. Is there anyway to get the drawer open without 1) breaking it or 2) having to call an engineer out? Thanks for any help

First of all, you need to confirm if the leak is from the filter or the pump.
You can replace the filter seperately to the pump.
If you replace the filter, and it still leaks, then you are going to have replace the pump.
I would suggest that that you check and clean if needed the outlet pipe where the water enters the outside waste pipe.
Make sure that you do a boil wash periodically, to ensure that the drum and other internal parts are clean.
Clean the door seal and dry after each wash, it helps to leave the door slightly open
Please leave any comments that may have as regards to my suggestions.

Hi Gary,It sounds to me that you have a blockage within the pressure systemas this is a classic sign. If you take the top off the machine you will see a round switch with a few wires going to it.This is the pressure switch. at the bottom of this switch is a thin pipe,normally black or clear. there is a small spring clip holding this pipe to the switch, If you remove this pipe and gently blow down it you will probably find it is blocked. You will then need to follow this pipe to the bottom of your machine. At the bottom of the machine where this pipe is fitted you will see there is a chamber and it is this chamber likly to be blocked.Some times you may clear this with a small piece of wire by removing the small pipe and poke wire through, but best way is to see how this chamber is removed and remove it for cleaning.Ensure machine is off at mains. this chamber fills with water and causes air pressure within the switch at the top of machine, which in turn tells programe when machine is full and also when empty. If this fails then machine will not turn off water supply as long as it is on. there fore when you reconnect parts ensure they are tight and clips back in place. Good luck and hope this works. Failing this working you may need to call an engineer to check switch and possible fault on board.

Completely remove the dispenser unit. look inside the recess you have just taken the dispenser drawer from and look up. You will find this is covered in muck. Clean it with an old toothbrush or something but do not use too mush pressure. This should solve your problem. If not then you will need to replace the dispenser unit completely

SOURCE: I don't know where the
Check the filter at the front of the machine at the base. There should be a small cover at front of machine at base. Open this cover and inside you will see a circular cap. This needs to be unscrewed anti clock wise, it can be stiff if not used before. remember you will have to catch the water that comes out and pull out any debris inside. It is possibly blocked or has debris inside. Remember you will have to catch the water be prepared. --- Please dont forget to vote if you liked my answer thanks ------

You first of all need to
check the pump filter. This is
located at the bottom front right of washer. Look for a drop down flap or cover, once
located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean. Of course be prepared for a lot of water and
junk. The pump itself is directly behind
the filter housing, check there to see if anything is stuck in the plastic blades. It should turn freely. Your washer door will not open if there is
water in the washer, just some kind of precaution, so don't force the door.
