SOURCE: check drain light. machine won't open

You probably have a bad drain pump and the door lock wont release because of it. You're gonna need to replace the drain pump and if there's water in the machine, it's going to be a messy repair. I'd recommend a repair man on this job. If not order the drain pump for that model off the internet, take the top off, take the soap dispenser out, take the screw out, take the display board off carefully. Then take the front off, unscrew the door switch. on the door seal, use a flat head to take the ring out. If you got a drain at the bottom, take those screws out. Remove the door. There's going to be water everywhere if you didn't drain it out the front (if it's an option.) Replace the drain pump. (Kind of a little puzzle on every model.) Put it back together.

Cycle has finished water not drained "check drain" light flashing. I have checked drain outlet all clear.


This could be a problem internal to the machine. If there is a sock or some other piece of debris clogging the drain pump or drain line you will get this message. You may have to open the unit and inspect the drain lines from the drum through the pump to the outlet drain hose to find the obstruction. It could also be a failed drain pump.

Door will not open have wash cycle


Switch off, put in spin/drain cycle and switch back on; check water is fully drained and then check filter. If not all drained, lower hose to ground level and drain to a bowl.

Wash cycle stops and light on the extra dirty symbol lights up


This is might be the drain filter. When the drain filter is clogged, the machine won't empty itself of water.

Candy has a troubleshooting webpage that lists many possible problems/solutions:

http://service.candy-domestic.co.uk/fault-finder/FaultFinder.aspx?Section=11

If you do try to check the filter, keep in mind that opening the drain filter will yield gallons of water on your floor, especially if your machine does not have the drain hose next to the filter opening. You'll need to have some way of transferring the water ready before opening the filter.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

When i turn the dishwasher on it start but when it whant's to wash the two red lights goes on and machine beep and stop washing.


After the intital cycle of the water inlet vavle opening the program shifts to the next mode But since there is errors on the controller the machine shuts off with an alarm.
Now check the front door opening switches, check the washer pumps, check the drain cycle/pump.
remove and check the door switch contacts, the pump and the drain.

My Asko W6021 won't start and the door won't open when buttons are pressed, although the power appears to be on (the red light comes on after power button has been pressed)..


Open the drain hatch at the bottom left of the machine. Open drain pump and check to make sure tat there are no foreign objects in drain pump. Object in the drain pump will prevent the unit from operating properly. If there is water still in the unit, you can use the drain hose to drain the washing machine. If you would like to open the door manually, disconnect power, remove screws holding red plastic handle in place. pull handle.

Indesit widl 126 s washer/dryer wont drain


Ive fixed my problem by turning it on, and after it does the standard pumping part pull out the power plug. Then when you plug it in again it will completely drain and its all reset again.
