Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this just in case!)
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hello

Try running the washer through rinse/spin cycle,then normal cycle without any detergent.

SF is suds failure,or too much detergent or wrong type of detergent.You need to use H E type detergent.

This should clear the machine out.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

(no promises but it's worth carrying this out anyway!)

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.

Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
(If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi i have a 9.5kg simpson washing machine error code PU31 what does that mean as my machine is not spinning out washing


Pump error. It means drain pump is either blocked or faulty. Water is not draining out or very slowly. Water has to all drain away before the machine will spin. Get the water out by lowering the drain hose down into a bucket. When machine is empty then remove and check the drain pump.

Can you tell me what e6 on the display means as the machine wont work when this shows


Not sure of the make/model, but with Samsung washing machines that usually means 2 things. If you get it when entering the spin mode and the system stops and displays the code, the water heater is heating too quickly. Press the power button once to clear the code and finish the cycle before repair.

If you get the E6 during the spin cycle that can mean a problem with the main controller board.

You can keep resetting to get past that code but if you continue to get it during a spin cycle or part of the laundry where hot water isn't used, then usually that controller board is bad.

Good luck.

I have simpson eziset 7.5kg has trouble spinning throws clothes to one side of tub


check that the machine is level
check that the wash bowl is level as a support mount may be failing and the bowl is not level
when it happens redistribute the clothes to a better balance point and re-spin
if it still happens ,seek the services of a washer technician.

Hi I have a Simpson 8kg washing machine ezi sensor and it won't spin the red lid light beeps continually and flashes it's only 2 yrs old and never had any other trouble with it??


Those machines with a will of their own can be difficult to handle.
Ask the electician if there could be something wrong while spinning.
