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.

When my washer in in the rinse cycle the water flows out from the top of the hose. I have used drain opener to unclog the drain. This happens every time I use the washing machine. The washer is only a year...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France Tues afternoon 15:00,

Couple of questions -
does the outlet pipe from the washer go into the (house) drain pipe fairly high up, near the top of the washer or is it low down? It should be maybe 1 metre above the floor.
If it is at the correct height, are you absolutely certain that the u-tube in the house plumbing is clear?

If the outlet pipe is high and the u-tube is clear it is possible (you do not say what make and model it is) that the house plumbing pipe size is not sufficient for the speed and amount of water that this (new) machine delivers over your others.
I really would suspect a partially blocked u-tube because, without taking the u-tube to pieces to check, 'drain opener' will not necessarily clear absolutely everything- honest ;-0)

Good luck,

John C

Have an affintiy front loader that wont do its final spin. Passes all the diagnostic tests that comes with the machine but when timer goes from 6 min left it just shuts off and gives the end of cycle...

there may be something blocking the drain pump.if you have standing water in the tub use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water.
once you remove the water check the drain pump for obstruction the main drain boot the comes from the bottom of the tub to the pump make sure everything is clear.
If you do not find anything then there is a chance that the door lock mechanism is faulty

My samsung 7kg front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door

UE = Unbalance Error

Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.
If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

Beko WMA 765s washer, power works no display

If there is power and lights are showing, but the door will still not open, then it could be one of several things.
First and foremost the door lock could be faulty, or the door handle or latch mechanism could be faulty or broken, if the door lock is not getting power then it is probably the main cotrol unit at fault.
I feel you should get someone to look at it for you.

Door won't open on Samsung washer

This has happened to me twice. Both times I found the drain pump seized up with
1st time) The right rim from a pair of reading glasses
2nd time) A plastic toothpick
Both times the object was in the discharge port of the pump. You can see this by lifting the check valve with the pump removed. Removing the pump is simple. Unplug the washer. You have to remove the drain line from where its attached to the rear of the machine (one screw) to remove the rear access panel which slides into upper and lower slots. You will see the pump with an inlet and discharge line attached. The lines have simple squeeze clamps. When you remove the lines, you will drain the wash basin so have towels and a squeegie handy. Remove both lines and wait until the basin drains. When it stops draining remove the pumps electrical connector by squeezing the release catch on it while pulling it. The connector can only go on one way. Remove the 3 hold-down bolts on the pump baseplate. Remove the pump and lift open the discharge check valve and you'll find something there I guarantee it. Remove with needle nose pliers and re-assemble in reverse order.
This is actually a good design because the computer protects the pump by sensing a higher than normal current draw when foreign debris gets jammed in it. It will trigger the ND (No Drain) code and sometimes lock the door. Always check this first before you call the expensive repair man. If its not a jammed pump it will most likely be the control panel/processor. Good luck and always clean out pockets before loading the washer to prevent this,

Cant drain and cant open the door

You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.

Your door will not open if there is water still in the machine. Try "spin only". If this fails, get a bucket, remove your outlet tube from the wall drain, put into bucket. Wall plug off first. After all the water is drained try the door, do not force it.

Then check your outlet filter; the water does not go thru for there may be a block in your filter, or tube from the tub to drain area. Or finally in your pump. Dont forget to refix drain pipe in wall in exact position.

And rate me pl.

Indesit 123. Will not drain. Goes into spin cycle when set but no water comes out. Checked hose at front and rear.

You need to clean out your outlet filter;(which is accessible thru the front bottom right side of machine, small push door, or plastic screw) this needs to be done periodically - according to your usage. If this does not solve your problem check out your outlet pump. Plug off the wall first before you do the jobs. The machine will not drain water if the outlet is clogged. For the pump, tubes, etc you hav to open up behind the machine. Be prepared for water to come flowing out....... You need good pair of grip pliers for the tubes.
And rate me pl, if the solution has worked......
