SOURCE: washing machine when on drain

Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

Things wear out! So is life!
Sounds like the coupling between the transmission and the agitator is the problem!
Only a hands on laundry tech can make the diagnoses
I were there hands on i could repair it.

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Bless You ngafm

SOURCE: drain

Check the hose from the pump to the outlet, sometimes it can get blocked.
Make sure you can hear the pump working, you should be able to hear it running.
Hope this helps.

Flashing pre-wash approx 1 hour into wash cycle instead of moving onto rinse and wash. Whats causing this? This is happening on the WMA50.

Hi! If the pre-wash light flashes it means you are not getting enough water in the machine, check the pressure chamber, pressure switch, fill hoses and valves. For a workshop manual on the WMA50 which includes fault finding, visit

Hoover Nextra HNF2127 washing machine. Lights flashing at finish


Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the base and also check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Machine stuck on F08 what is solution? Hotpoint WT965

Hi there,

F08 indicates "Heater Relay stuck or Pressure Switch stuck on full".
You'll need a multimeter to be able to carry out some checks.
Check the heater for continuity, you should get a reading of around 25 ohms.
Check the pressure switch connections on the main pcb, usually J3
Check the pressure switch wiring and connections.
Chek the wiring at the heater for internal breaks. (The wire looks ok but when pulled snaps easily).
Check the pressure tube and chamber.
Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.
Take the lid off and locate the pressure switch.
Take off the thin tube attached to it and blow down the tube to try and clear any restrictions in the pressure hose or chamber.
Refit the tube and try the machine again.
If everything checks out ok, it would suggest that the main pcb will require replacing and the software written to it.

Won't spin on last cycle

The pump is supposedly self cleaning.

There's a 'pre-chamber' behind a panel at the bottom on the front. The top of the panel should tilt forward & up. Turn the 'pre-chamber' anti clockwise, after putting a shallow tray under it to catch the small amount of water that may be there.

I think I have a pdf manual (found on web somewhere) on another computer, I'll have a look & send it to you if you can give me an email address.

Pump pre chamber lid wont open

I have a PWE8168 and assuming yours has a similar arrangement:
1) Switch off water and electricity feeds;
2) Pull the washing machine forward a sufficient distance to allow you to tip it back so that you can gain access to the area next to the pre chamber lid. I found my tool box was handly at propping up the front!
3) A torch is handy at this point. Lie on the floor, and use a pair of mole grip pliers to release the springs securing the pipe attached to the left of the pre chamber filter (looking from the front of the machine).
4) Note that if you have not been able to drain your machine already your should have some towels/cloths and (eg) a tuppaware container ready to collect all the water.
5) Slide the pipe off and you should be able to get your fingers into the pump pre chamber and fish out whatever is jamming both the pump and the lid. I got a 5p piece for my troubles!

I would not say that this is a particularly difficult procedure and apart from water collecting, should only take 20 minutes, including reconnecting the pipe.
