Here's a solution I've gotten from one of the experts..

"Clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!"

Hope this helps.. Good luck! :)

Both the motors for my Defy Twinmaid 920 is not working,the replacement motors has black,green and red wires while the original motor has black,blue and white wires,how do I match the wires?


Black is universal. I would substitute the green and red wires for blue and white. Also notice the location that the original wires are coming from and then match the location up with that on the new motor wires.

My defy laundromaid electrologic 1300 suddenly stops spinning and gives a ue error


I had the same problem: E9 error when switching the machine on. This indicates something is wrong with the pressure switch. (or connection to the pressure switch). When you open the top cover at the back of the machine it will be in the right hand corner (when looking from the back of the machine). This is a round device with a clear tube coming in at its bottom and a three wire connecting plug at its side. When unplugging I found one of the pins corroded (green tarnish). After cleaning it off with some steel wool the problem became intermittent - indicating the connection is not too sound. Just bending the pin slightly did the trick causing it to soundly make contact inside the plug. Problem solved!!

How can i remove the spinner drum from a defy twinmaid 920 (twin tub)? please help?


1)You have to tip the machine on it's back and remove all the screws from the bottom grey cover.
2)There are 4 screws securing the drain plug at the back. Remove these as well. Gently pry off the bottom of the machine.
3)The spin motor sits on four spring mounts. Undo the 4 screws from the top of the mounting plate.The motor shaft is not screwed to the drum. Slide the motor out of the drum shaft.
4) Once free, there are 2 X 10 mm bolts that lock in 2 grub screws on the shaft. Loosen these an remove the grub screws and remove this coupling off the drum shaft.
The drum is now free to come out the top of the machine.

Hope this helps

Defy Laundromaid 1300 has a serious leak. I've checked the filter, and there is nothing in it to cause it to leak. We had a Defy techinician come out and he also cannot find the leak. Please advise...


water pump is not functioning properly, when in spin cycle water in drum pushes up and over the top, symptom is water leaking out the bottom which indicates a leak but its actually the water pump not pumping out all the water. Gets air trapped in the pump which results in air lock and no head for the pump to function properly. Fix is to lower your drain pipe to same level as pump when in spin cycle so that the water runs out freely this will not solve the problem but will allow you to continue washing until you have the problem sorted.
