Question about Washing Machines
The washing machine isn't draining the water, I have opened the p-trap at the bottom of the machine and rinsed out the water (dirty) also 2 coins came out too but have tried it on a wash again and it still won't drain the water? What can I do to try and fix this? thanks

Sounds like your stand-pipe has fell over,located behind machine that the drain hose goes into.This pipe must be vertical,and secure.The top of the washers drain hose loop that goes into the stand-pipe, should be as high as your soap dispenser.If this is not the problem then your water pump must be pumping the water out all the time.Can you hear the pump? If so, some faults can force the washing machine into a constant cycle of filling with cold water and pumping the water away if it thinks the washing machine is overheating (possible faulty thermistor).Hopefully its only your stand-pipe causing the loss of water.Lets know how you get on.Good luck.

If you've waited the normal time for the interlock to allow the door to open and it's still locked, the interlock switch itself is probably faulty. Tricky job. Best to find a repair technician........Nomess

Did you try it in other cycles (delicate, permanent press, etc.)? The more symptoms - what works and doesn't allows better advice. Because right now it could be the control board, the timer, the drain pump and more.
Also you need to give us the model number off the id tag in your unit since that once keeps coming back as invalid.

its your drain pump if you can hear it humming but no water is draining it is blocked or jammed by a foriegn object (most probably a 20 cent coin or bobby pin/s), if you can hear it working as normal but still no water it may have a blockage sumwhere along the drain pipe either that or the impellor has snapped off the shaft and is ratteling around and not actually turning, and with the spin that is directly related to yor drain pump issue as the washer will not even attempt to spin if water remains in the tub, incredibly easy to do hit me back if you want detailed instructions
