Question about Washing Machines
Yesterday I left a load washing with the rinse cycle on rinse hold. When I came back the dial had moved to "pump out". The water had drained but the washing was soaking wet and hadn't spun. I've checked the drain and it's not blocked. I've tried to run it empty on quick wash and the dial immediately clicked all the way through to "pump out". It's making an odd noise, like the motor isn't really working properly.

When this happens it is usually a problem with the timer. By replacing the timer/programmer you should be able to fix it.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

Turn timer to rinse cycle. let fill up and agitate. when it stops
agitating it should pause then start to pump water out. After about 2
minutes it should pause for 3-5 seconds then start again and spin. If
it starts the first time and never stops it will just continue to pump
but no spin. The 3-5 second pause allows the transmission to shift to
spin. If it does not do this the problem is your timer. You may need to
do this a few times to verify the problem.
If that is not the problem it is likely that you need a new clutch. You will need a technician to install a new clutch for you

Hi, You have taken out the strainer of the washer front and cleaned it regularly haven't you?? If that's clear, it's probably just the waste line blocked. Try removing the waste pipe where it joins under the sink, put it in a bucket and see if the washer drains. It's probably full of sh"te. If that doesn't work, then I'm probably full of sh"te and you might need a new pump.

The 03 error code is the drain. Disconnect the drain hoses
and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If
it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the
type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum
getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from
house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if
block is in your plumbing, and not in the machine. Assuming that your
filter is clean.
