    I have looked at other posts and have now opened the base of the washing machine and taken out the pump to clear the blockage up the black flexi hose. I am running a cycle through it now to see if it has solved the problem.

    so, that was not the problem. It washes and drains and spins until the final cycle (I guess the fabric conditioner part), then I get the error E-06. Help, any ideas what the problem could be?

My Kenmore washer will not drain or spin makes a buzzing sound what do I need to do to fix this problem. Trying bypassing lid switch that didn't work did not do anything at all drained gravity way


From the information you have given, I suspect that the drain pump is either blocked, or has a foreign object trapped in it which is preventing the pump from spinning and pumping out the water.
If you have drained the water out of the machine, disconnect the machine from mains power and remove the drain pump from the machine, check the inside of the pump housing for foreign objects such as hair clips, wires from underwire Bra's, jewelry,etc.
Also, take this opportunity to ensure that there are no other objects in any of the connecting hoses.
Before re-connecting the the hoses to the pump, ensure that the pump spins freely, reassemble the machine, and connect the drain hose to the domestic plumbing

Re-connect the machine to the mains electricity and test for correct operation.

I hope this information helps?

Washing machine-water wont drain


If your washer won't drain, check these:
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.
Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.
If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.
It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.
It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:
If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.
If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Smeg WM 16 AAA WASHING MACHINE


Try turning power off, unscrewing the back panel of the machine and removing, reaching inside and giving the wheel which looks like a waterwheel (has 'fans') a couple of turns. This is the pump and sometimes small particles jam the wheel. Turn the power back on and if still in mid-cycle should resume and finish.

Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump, maybe a sock. Remove the front panel by sticking a small screwdriver or putty knife just above the front panel to release 2 clips. Drain pump is located bottom right with 2 hoses connected to it. Drain the machine and remove the hoses. Check for obstructions.
