The agitator secures to the bottom of the tub by snapping over the drive bell in the bottom of the washtub. Some agitators have a bolt under the agitator cap, although many will not have a bolt. www.rubberfloorings.co.uk

F2 is a drain erro. Take the 3 screws off the botom panel in the middle, bottom you will see a large white plastic looking pump. this unscrews counter clock wise. have something ready to catch the rushing water. The trap is probably full of the rubber backing or strands of the rug. After you unscrew it, there is a trap there that can be cleaned. You may have to repeat this a couple of thimes to get all of it out.

The problem seems to lie in the rubber backed mat. If the rubber has begun to peel of the mat it often-times get stuck in the drain pump. The best thing to do at this point is to disconnect the electrical cord, open up the machine, drain out the water as best as possible disconnect the power cord to the drain and the hoses. Clean out the drain pump. reassemble. You should be good to go., Unless the drain pump is burned out (left running plugged up too long) if thats the case, replacement of the pump may be neccessary.... Hope this helps...Good luck!....

Read the owners manual. Many washers have 'self cleaning' filters that will get clogged with big stuff. The 'moldy odor' is caused by MOLD. Run a 'extra large' empty load of HOT water with normal detergent + 1 PINT of ordinary bleach. Add another shot (pint) of bleach to the rinse cycle. Sometimes a small article (sock?) will escape the clothes basket and get trapped in the tub--it can't get drained out and can't get back into the clothes basket. The bleach will kill the mold, but if it returns you will have to take the top off and fish the lost article out using a bent clothes hanger as a hook.

I have a 4 section folding shower bath screen and need a replacement down rubber between the 3rd and 4th door please


if you can , take a section of the rubber you require to a shop that sells rubber products ( mats ,pools , mattresses rubber mouldings etc) as they have a range of rubber mouldings that may be suitable
try plumber wholesalers that sell baths , showers and toilets as they may be the agent for the manufacturer of the doors
Lastly the doors may be made by a glass fitter shop and they may have the rubber to suit the aluminium surrounds of the glass

If your bath mat has a rubber backing, that would prevent the water from being centrifuged out of the mat. Even if you laid the mat in the drum with the wet side outwards, it would still only have a limited effect on removing the water.

We think we overloaded the machine with bath mats and since then the water did not drain and the machine does not work any more. All buttons are flashing.


your pump is totaly clogged with the math matt sand
you should be able to access the pump from the rear wall,
bring towels you will loose water

remove both hoses from the pump and ensure they are clear, wash the drain hose completly run water through it

make sure you pump is clean and free
to spin

reassemble and and plug back in

errors should clear

There is still some of the rubber in the tub blocking the pressure switch line. It will take a lot of tedious cleaning to get it all out. Had the pleasure several times in my career. Eric
