Re: washing machine

This is most likely a problem with the supply.. Esepcially if you have self cutting taps ...They do clog yo...... Check to see if the water pressure in the pipes is good
dissconnect form the back of the machine and let it run in to a bucket......

Washer won t fill water

pipes maybe clear but is your area wher you live prone to limescaling? where the water pipe/pipes go into the machine there is a switch to shut on/off the flow of water during whatever cycle you want.this might be blocked or sticking. first try to select different cycles and see if any of those fills the machine with water. if no water comes its one of two things. that switch is faulty or communication between the switch and the front consule is at fault.
contact your supplier after trying to go thru a few different cycles.

Possible there are errors in the program memory. Power off the washer for half an hour, press and hold down the start button , then switch on. Try also with another program. Also check if the inlet filter is clogged and the water flow is good, if not clean. Also check the water level pressure sensor.

Washer fills up than starts draining while in wash cycle

Hello , here is the fix-your drain hose is placed to low in the drain line in the wall, it can not be placed in water or it will siphon the water out of your washer into the drain pipe and it wont stop until it hits air. try pulling your drain hose up and out of the drain and get a zip tie or cable and tie it to one of the water valves by the drain pipe placing the end of the drain hose about 5-6 inches inside the drain pipe. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck it will work.

Machine filling and then immediately draining

Hi You need to higher your outlet pipe on the back of the machine there is usually a clip to hold the pipe in place 3/4 of the way up the machine so it looks like a u upside down its should stop the machine from emptying straight away

this may sound silly but check the waste outlet pump electrically, some models are wired up so if the pump fails the water will not enter the machine, this works on the theory that if it fills up it can not empty also check the solenoids for open circuit electrically, double check the water supply to the machine, it may have been fine but you could have kinked the pipe placing the machine back where it should go?

Wash Machine Drainage problem

i am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, slowing down the flow of water from any electrical washing appliances can be dangerous and will cause extensive damage to the appliance in question, at the very least it will stop half way through the cycle every time the only way to remedy this is to rectify the drain, or at least sort out another waste water outlet sorry

Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.
