We had the same problem on a Premier 500 and solved it by tilting the machine forward. Some more water ran out and the lights went off.

The pump is at the lower left of the front of the machine covered by a white plate. Use a bowl to catch any remaining water when opening the screw thread inside and then clean and replace. If it is truely beyond repair then a new filter pump can be bought from ebay for £3 or thereabouts.

I have just drained mine manually in this way and am going to run it empty with soda crystals to glean a few more days use whilst the new pump arrives.

Good luck :)

SOURCE: the water wont drain or spin wf210 hotpoint

Hi I think your problem is that the filter is blocked, filter is located between drum and pump at the rear, clean that out and that should solve the problem.

SOURCE: Asko D3530 water inlet fault code, water valve is

Hello,

It is common for these valves to "appear" to be ok, meaning they begin to allow water into the unit, but then one of the two coils or plungers inside fail, or are clogged with mineral deposit from the water or other debris.

Change the valve and you should be fine. part #1164471, you can find it at select parts depots or on-line retailers like repairclinic.com etc.

** Hire a pro or make sure to use a good replacement clamp on the fill line to the tub when you replace the valve, as well as some plumbers puddy/tape on the inlet fitting. Those little buggers have alot of water pressure going thru them when they open and I've seen them come off or leak due to insufficient fastening/loose clamps, then your machine goes into "flood mode".**

Asko seems to be repeating their past. On the earlier DW95 series (mid 90's to around 2000ish) they had a dual valve inlet which had a single valve rework issued to repair the faulty dual valves, now it looks like they're doing it again. Go figure.

Hope that helps, let me know.

Good Luck :)

My Indesit 7105 has flashing H20 lights, have checked but no blockages. It fills and drains fine, It wont agitate though, any ideas?


The machine does not fill with water or 'H20' flashes in the display.
The water inlet hose is kinked. • The water inlet hose is not connected to the water supply. • The water pressure is too low. • The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine. • There is no water supply to the house. • The inlet valve filter is blocked. • The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.

Faulty pressure switch machine thinks there is no water in the machine.

Miele Touchtronic w1203 , the intake and drain fault indicator lights are both flashing at the same time


Seems that the inlet valve or water flow is low , check the inlet flow or check for clogged filter.
Also check the lint filter and the cache filter. remove and clean drain pump. This must solve the issue.

My omega washer dryer owd6000wa won't start start light not flashing


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

My whirlpool front loading washing machine keeps stopping before the rinse cycle. I've cleaned the filter and the drain hose as well as all the inlet hoses. It stops and all the lights flash and it wont...


While it stops to rinse , does it drain off? if not there is block on the drain valve and so there is an error on the board because the water level sensor has to switch OFF and then ON to confirm that water has come in for rinsing.
So if the cycle is absent the possible fault can be the program controller. So you need to check the actions when the fault occurs, check for drain,.then after drain the inlet valve must open to allow water and then the water flow must cut off to start the motor.
If there is no action and output then the controller can be defective.

I have a Zanussi DX6453 dishwasher. Water will


Hello,
Try tipping the dishwasher back to see if any water drains out from below if there is water present then the anti-flood device is energised and stopping water coming into the unit.If it works now after resetting then there is a leak under the machine that needs investigating.You can try going into the diagnostics to read the alarms.If you hold in the first and third button from the left on programmer,whilst holding in then press the on/off button then when the lights start racing release these 2 buttons.You should now be in the diagnostics,now press the first button once and count the flashes of the end of cycle LED.If this button is pressed 2 more times it will give the previous alarms.1 flash could indicate fault on inlet water and valve.2 flashes drain circuit blocked.3 flashes anti-flood device.8 flashes faulty circuit board.Make sure after reading alarms to switch off unit then on then off to reset.Then go back into the diagnostics as before to reset alarms but this time press button 2 from left all LEDS will flash after exit as before.

Hope this helps.

Dishwasher adp 4601 when switched on the pump activates.and after 2 mins start lamp bliks and pump goes off


The number of flashes indicates the fault. Reset machine by holding down the start button for 3 secs, then start a new cycle. If fault reoccurs, the number of flashes indicates fault eg 3 flashes, stop, 3 flashes stop, indicates F3 fault.
Faults listed below- advice on repair depends on which fault your machine is indicating, but may give you an idea of what to look for
1flash=NTC (temperature sensor) break- NTC outside normal range.
2flash=water leakage-float switch in base activated.
3flash=heating fault(check element.NTC,control board).
4flash=drain error-blockage in pump or drain system,or faulty water indicator switch.
6flash=water inlet fault-check inlet valve, check inlet hose not kinked
7flash=flow meter failure (flow meter measures water intake volume-large plastic weir located on left hand side of machine-reomve side panel to access)
These a most common faults, but further advice on repair requires counting flashes when fault occurs.

Start light flashing wont start cycle, what does it mean


count the number of flashes- this indicates fault ie will flash 4 times stop, flash 4 times stop. To clear fault, hold start button for 3 secs. Try running another fast cycle- if fault reoccurs count flashes: Number of flashes:1=NTC fault, 2=Flood switch activated, 3=Heating fault, 4=drain fault, 6=water inlet fault, 7=flow meter fault, 8=water level fault

What should I do when the automatic safety system detects a malfunction?
The programme is interrupted, an audible tone sound and various indicators (if available) point to the
source of the fault.
