    Machine will drain but only a dribble is coming out the waste pipe.

    I have checked the pipe that goes to the pump and that seems clear and if i blow into the pipe the water in the drum bubbles up so i think the pipe is clear upto the black rubber pipe from drum to pump.

    I feel the blockage could be from the drup to the pipe that gose to the pump.

    Does this sound right?

    Please help!!

I had same problem twice, the first time there was a sock in the filter at the front adjoining the pump, the second time a sock had got in the pipe under the drum which is more awkward to get to but is possible if you have the tools to remove the back plate and are ok at diy, there is a spring tension clip on the pipe which comes off quite easily with a pair of pliers.

Duets washer won't drain


Probably a blocked filter, outlet pipe or pump.
Take the drain hose and lay it flat and lower then the level of the drum and this will drain the machine providing the blockage is not solid. When machine is empty check filter , pipes and pump and remove any blockage found.
Replace drain hose and you should then be able to carry on with your wash or spin the clothes.

The filter area permanantly holds water, this is correct,suggest that you have a faulty inlet valve. Regards Engineer
