Re: washing machine not working
This normally indicates one of two problems.
1), the overflow pipe that goes into the sump is blocked and needs unblocking. (make sure that you have a bucket and towels at hand)
2) the carbon brushes in the motor have worn down. If the motor is on top of the machine which I believe it is on this model they are fairly cheap and easy to replace. Most washine machine repair shops sell these as spare parts.

Seems like a blockage or maybe pump worn out. Fill machine and take grey outlet pipe on rear of machine. Place this pipe as low as possible into a bowl. If water flows free from this pipe then your pipes are not blocked and most likely you will need to change your pump. Before you try this just put machine onto spin and ensure this will work when machine is almost empty
if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever
check the drain pipe is not blocked, to empty the machine manualy get a bowl on the floor and lower the drain pipe into it and fill to stop water flow lift pipe up in air and lower to start draining again when empty if pipe not blocked i would suggest a new pump located under the drum and easy to fit
The sensor you are referring to could posslbly be the water level switch which controlls the level of water,and also. is a factor as to wether the washer will spin or not, it also is part of the heater circuit, so it has numerous functions.
I t can be found at the top right front of the washer, and is about 3" in diameter, and has a thin plastic tube going to it.
it could be sticking, there is no sure fire way of testing it properly, but you could try tapping it and blowing down the tube, it may solve the prob.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution.
Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly. In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.
Hi- if the water does not drain from the m/c, then it will not spin.Check to see if the pump is working.
Select drain or empty and the water should pump out.
If it does not, then you have a draining problem.
Hope this helps.
ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
