Engine seems to run fine as long as the plug is not fouled however it smokes and leaks oil from the fuel pump. It seems as though there is too much crank case pressure

oil from the fuel pump may indicate a failure of the diaphragm of the fuel pump and petrol is getting into the sump
that will raise the oil level to a point where the oil ring can longer control the oil getting to the top of the piston
it is possible that the sump breather hose is blocked or if it has a small pvc valve that that is blocked

My vw polo classic 2000 model is burning out the fuel pump what can be the cause

It seems you have a blocked fuel line from the tank to the pump, the fuel pump is cooled by the fuel flowing through it. Check if your fuel filter isn't blocked

The water doesnt seem to be pumping away even though I can hear the sound of the pump

If water is not going away then it is likely the drain hose is blocked, the filter plate is blocked or the kitchen sink drain is blocked. check the garbage disposal unit if used in the kitchen sink has been operated and clear of rubbish before you operate dishwasher. Need make and model number of dishwasher to get a better idea.

My wf t1001tp wont drain...can anyone help?

sounds like a blocked drain hose or a faulty pump motor..If the machine can be drained by putting the drain hose lower than the water level then the hose is not blocked and it may be the pump...Make sure the hose leaves the machine from under the tub and not high on rear of washer. Obviously water won't flow uphill..If the pump has failed a new pump motor is much cheaper than buying a whole new pump....Nomess

My LG WM 1260FHD is displaying OE. I have cleaned out the filter (4times) and have manually had to drain it 5-6times. Ihave now tried it with out clothes in it & the water does not seem to drain from...


You either have something blocking the pump propellors or the pump itself has failed.

You need to get to the pump. I suggest laying the machine on its back. Disconnect the power and hoses before hand.

There is a cap on the pump, where it joins to the filter cavity. You need to unscrew that cap. I believe they are star shaped screws. Once you remove the cap, look to see if anything has gone through the filter and blocked the propellors. Alot of times it may be a hair pin or some small object. If there is nothing there, then I suggest replacing the pump. Make sure when you are putting the pump back on, that you have the O-ring sealer in place.

good luck

Pump outlet is blocked

it was difficult for me to access the pump; so i connected the outlet pipe to my vaccuum cleaner and it did manage to get water out, but the moment i took the vaccuum cleaner out the pump was ineffective on its own. so i repeated this about 10 times and then the pump blockage was cleared and it is able to work on its own again.
