Remove the hoses and check it out. Many times the obstruction can be cleared.

SOURCE: Hi guys... I've a Simpson eziset 450 top load

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
As far as I am aware most washers have a filter, top loaders tend to be at the back, bad design in my opinion!

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

Simpson eziset still eont dtain aftet nee pump installed


You need to confirm that power is getting to the pump, these machines can get broken wires between the control panel and the pump, usually half way up the inside of the cabinet.

My Simpson eziset 950 keeps coming up with error HC.


No water flowing in to machine. Check taps are fully open & filters on end of hoses are clean & not blocked. If all good then you probably have a faulty inlet valve.

I have a Simpson Eziset 550 washing machine and it does not fill with water at the start of a wash - instead it will start to fill then stop and all three lights on the water temp gauge light up and start...


When mine had all 3 water temp lights blinking, it was a blocked pump, I emptied the washer, tilted it back, disconnected the hose from the pump (you will need towels) and clear out the pump, then put the hose back on.

Simpson eziset 450


It sounds like the drum is so away from level that water is not flowing to the drain line, hence the pump running out of water. I would make sure the machine is level and the drum is resting level if it's the type that pivots around inside the machine. Failing that I would open up the machine and check the hoses to make sure they're not blocked. I would also check the drain hose to make sure it's not placed too high or in a way that will obstruct water flow.
