Re: Drainage

More then likely that your pump or the drain hose has a slight blockedge you can kill 2 birds with 1stone here you can get rid of the water and see if the pipe is blocked by taking the pipe and placing it low to the ground into a bucket if the water comes out slow then you will have a blockedge and your pump will be ok now make sure you pull the plug out pull the asher out now tip it backwards just enough so you can see the pump at the back undue the clip which holds the pipe onto your pump now there will be some water that will leak out once pipe is free you can pure water down it by putting it onto the tap if it comes out fast then the block is in the pump

We have a Miele W701. We just finished a load of laundry and the door won't click open. The electricity is on and I cannot see any other problem with the machine.

The most common cause for this problem, is the Electro Magnetic Door lock, itself. The part may cost about $170, new. However, you can open the door manually, from the bottom side of the washer. Other causes may be a defective "push button switch," or drainage problem. In a drainage problem, water sitting inside washer, won't allow the user to open washer door, until the water is manually drained out. Good Luck.

Drain pump not working i have a new drain pump voltage to it is around 70v ac

recently the water would not drain from my indesit WIDL 126S machine, I have done all the obvious checks, everything looks as it should be. after doing a little research somethings pointed to the pump maybe being past its life span. so i have replaced it, and still its not working.
when machine is in cycle alams 2 and 4 flash, when drainage is required then machine stops what it is doing.
when machine is selected for drainage only, door locks and few minutes later door unlocks with water still in machine.
the machine is about 5 yrs old, is it time for a new one? or is there something else that may be worth checking?

Where is the filter onwma56

If your Hotpoint washer is a similar design to mine, you'll not have a user-accessible pump filter, so - presuming you're happy doing it and the machine is unplugged from the electricity of course - I rectified by the following:

1. Switched the machine to 'pump-out' and got rid of as much water as possible.
2. Unplugged and disconnected the pump-out pipe from the house drainage and drained off as much additional water as possible into a bowl by gravity.
3. Removed the panel at the bottom of the back of the washer to expose the pump, the bottom of the drum and the main washer motor.
4. On the right-hand side, you'll see the pump with the grey (in my case) drain pipe and a wide black rubber pipe connected directly to the bottom of the drum by an adjustable metal clip
5. The wide black pipe attached to the drum contains a ball-filter and is probably the source of your problems - undo the clip (watching for water of course; though none was spilt when I did it) - and lower it slightly to reveal the filter and - hopefully - the odd sock or so!
6. Clear the filter of the obstructions (the plastic ball can be lifted out by the way to aid doing this)
7. Make sure the ball is back in place and connect the wide black pipe back up to the bottom of the drum - ensure the clip is secure
8. Replace the machines back panel
9. Connect the drain pipe back up to the house drainage
10. Do a test wash !

Hope that helps - in practice it took about 10 minutes all together and is pretty easy.

Water remains in the drum (Maytag washer).

NO, there is a small blockage within the drainage system. check the following to combat this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
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).

2. Water Pump
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. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
