Wont drain?


Check the pump filter which could be blocked or something like a nail has jammed the pump impeller. this may cause a mess as the water needs to be drained to access the removable cover to gain access to the filter/impeller.
Also check the drain pipe is not blocked. this can also be used to drain the machine into a bucket manually.

Indesit wie 147 washing machine wont empty water it dose every think else but it got stuck and had an error of 5 with water stuck in drain some as looking at the preasure pipe blew down the pipe an no...


It really does sound like you have a blockage somewhere even if you cant feel it. You may need to remove the pump and the pipes to be certain. Try laying the drain pipe on floor level. If it drains then there is definately something in there that needs to be removed. Let me know if you need any more help.

Cant get my belt bak on really tight fit help


They have to be stretched tight, so it will appear a little small. Put the belt over the motor spindle first, now guide it onto the large drive wheel of the drum, hold the belt in the correct place on the large wheel as you slowly spin it to draw it onto the wheel and it will fit. Easy.

Now then, the nasty nasty bit and I hope I'm completely wrong here!

I have once and only once ever come across a washing machine that needed a belt replaced because the belt was faulty. 99 times in a hundred, if the belt has "fallen off" and "keeps falling off" it's because of another problem. They can't simply fall off because they have nowhere to go except on the track they are set on. If your belt has fallen off, I would put good money on there being an underlying problem with the main bearings in the drum failing, allowing the inner drum to "flop about". and allowing sufficient latteral movement in the the large drive wheel for the wheel to wobble and allow the belt to slip off.

To test your bearings, open the door of the machine and by putting a little lifting pressure on the top of the inner drum, attempt to rock the stainless steel inner drum up and down.

The outer drum is mounted on springs and shock absorbers, so it will rock about (and it should do this) but the inner drum should not move up and down in relation to the outer drum. There should be ABSOLUTELY NO PLAY between the 2 drums, even the tiniest amount will mean the bearings have failed.

If the bearings are bad enough then other symptoms will typically include:

A clonking noise as you lift and release the inner drum (this is the inner drum rattling on its bearings and/or hitting the outer drum)

You will have become aware of the spin cycle becoming far noisier recently and possibly even a grinding crunching noise when the machine spins.

The drum may feel like something is crunching or stopping you turning it when you spin it by hand with the door open.

A leak from under the machine, which you will probably be able to trace to the back of the machine, coming from the centre of the drum. This is a result of the failing bearing allowing water to escape through the seal at the rear.

This is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machine and removing the drum from the chassis, splitting it, removing pressed in bearings and then sourcing and re-fitting new bearings.

To be frank, the cost of a bearing set (if they are replaceable, and most are) will be about £20 ($30) or so. But it's a long and horrible job if you haven't done it before. I know professionals who claim they can do a bearing change in under an hour, I've done a few and it takes me about 2 hours by the time I've ripped the machine apart and reassembled it after the bearing swap. A local repairer will probably attend and swap out your defective drum for a refurbished one and then take yours away so he can refurbish it and put it back in his stock. Sadly, this will take the price up to the point where you need to question if the expense is worth it or do you get a new machine instead.

Feel free to drop a comment back on this thread if I can provide more help.

Washing Machine wont drain as well as other problems!


Either the drain, filter, or screen is clogged somewhere. Check belts, pulley, agitator and tub bearings. Refere to this site for more info:

Hi i had my washing machine repaired last week as the bearings had gone and it needed a new drum (luckily it is under warranty). Now 6 days later there is water coming from the bottom and the washing...


to find the leak take your lid off + the access panel on the back now turn it on if u still cant find the leak tip it backwards and have another look but it could be a fault theyve done by not sealing the 2 halves of the outer drum if thats the case they should come out to it straight away or get in touch with the trading standards because it has only just been done and it must be something theyve done if it wasnt leaking before

Front loader washing machine = black streaks on clothing


I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,
