Question about Washing Machines
The machine went thru a full cycle and finished its cycle still full of water, I can hear the pump but the water stagnates in the drum. Is there a filter blockage somewhere? Thanks

The first question you need to ask yourself is, "is the drain pump running?" If you can hear the drain pump running when it tries to drain, then more than likely you have a clogged drain pump, or drain line. Here's how you can determine which one: You can check the drain line by seeing if it collapses when the pump starts to run. If it does, then you know you have a clogged line somewhere BEFORE the pump. This usually means an article of clothing has gotten between the wash basket and outer tub and is stuck in the line. If the line is full of water and doesn't seem to be going anywhere, hook up a wet/dry shop vac to the drain hose in the rear of the machine to see if you can pull water from the tub, through lines, and through the pump. If you can't, you know you probably have a clogged pump, or drain line AFTER the pump. If the drain pump does not come on, you may have a pump failure. In either case, you need to drain the water from the tub. A wet/dry shop vac does a great job at pulling water from the tub, so you don't have to bail. Let me know if this helps.

Hiya Barry, I have the same machine and for the last 3 days have had the exact same problem...mini load and reduced crease as well as power light flash right when it comes to drain...?
I have scratched my head and done lots and lots of research, reckon I could design and build my own washer now lol, anyway, I fitted a new pump and ran it, thinking this is it sorted, went out and got a call from our lass...doing it again.
Right, gonna have to get me hands dirty...I removed the drain hose (Ignore the pump for a second, I'm talking about the grey hose that goes from the pump to the sink) from the sink and poked my fingers as far as they would go...debris, I then removed it from the other end (Pump) so I had a long hose in my hands, not attached to anything at either end....cleared it and again, loads of debris (Fluff, plastic etc) and put it all back together...turned the old fella back on and running a wash right now as we speak...happily spinning round at 1400rpm and throwing gallons of water down the sink...I would consider it fixed.
So I can most definately tell you that you have a blockage somewhere mate, I'd get your hands in the toolbox and pull that pipe off, doesn't require any level of experience, just the ability to put things back as you found them...
Hope that helps

I have a fairly new Hotpoint Aquarius machine (out of guarantee).
When it is switched on, all of the red lights flash and it will not operate.
Can you help please ??

You need to clean the filter.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well
Hope this helps with your problem
