Question about Washing Machines
Have a Homemaker brand top load washing machine. Stopped working during a wash and gave an error code that means the outlet drain line was blocked. The water that was still in the machine drained easily when the drain hose was layed on the ground but i am wondering how to check for this 'blocked drain'. Has no centre piece on the inside of the bowl, just holes in the bottom for bubbles. There is a single screw in the centre of the bowls which is very tight & did not want to unscrew to check under the base of the bowl & i didnt want to force it & break something. I opened the back and disconnected the drain line & it appeared there was nothing blocking the small final pump from a visual inspection. Any suggestion would be appreciated, thanks.
Just repaired a Homemaker 5Kg version of this washing machine with exactly the same symptoms. Read many, many solutions all over the internet the same as above that did not solve the problem. Finally fathomed it was the "brake solenoid" not releasing the brake from the cogs at the bottom of the drum. I sourced the part from "spares.bigwarehouse.com.au" who added the part to their inventory list after enquiring if it was available.
It was an easy replacement/fix after receiving the part.
Another option to look at in repairing this problem.

This farking chinese systems are so unstable.. homemaker is a pure chinese breed and suddenly they have comeup with so many products from no where with no backgroud R&D team or history... possible typical chinese company who hacks into foreign network for R&D work and produces its products.. well god bless i hope u get ur things fixed...which i doubt... such chinese company has no network or supply parts gurantee...they solely reply on stolen R&D work... i bought a system from them and sweared that never to buy cheap chinese products...cant trust those commies well good luck..

Was it E2 error? I had similar however was just hairpin (my wifes, not a technical part of the washing machine) preventing spin cycle completing. In my HMWM8000 just need to drain, or cup out the water and unscrew the screw holding the bottom centre plate together (should be under plastic cover and could be pretty tough). Once undone pull up the plastic bottom and you may find a few hairpins stuck round the edge of the metal spin plate. Pull them out, piece machine back together and problem solved. I've now done this several times. Thanks Honey.

So there's no hope in fixing this problem without having to replace the brake solenoid? Mine is a 5kg HMXQB70-722 and won't spin dry at all, very frustrating.

Mines the same , its simply gets from 13 remaining on the machine time and goes up to 23 numerous time and will have to open it reshuffle the load and try again .it does work sometimes but the product is faulty will never buy this **** brand again .

Never found out sorry, and for that particular brand i was told from the supplier & from a local repairer that they are basically "throw-away" items and that parts can not be purchased for repairs. 'Coincidentally' it was just out of warranty or it would have been replaced. Always the way... If you can source a replacement pump and change it out that would be my best advice/guess.
