Water is not draining or pumped out why ?

Do you have an HE or standard washing machine?
If its not draining on an HE machine you need to check the drainage port on it which is usually on the lower left hand side facing it. Beware there is water that will come out especially if there is water in the machine. There is probably a sock or some other items trapped in there making the drainage slow. The drainage filter on a standard machine varies depending on the brand. Usually they are on the back of your washing machine. I would check the drainage hose and the filter to see if there is any socks or other items stuck in them. That is usually the issue when the water isn't spinning out. Good luck

Wixl123 does not drain after washing ?

Drainage problems can be caused by:
a) Blocked Filter chamber
b) Blocked Sump
c) Blocked Drain Pipe

d) Blocked waste pipe
e) Failed Pump

You can check the sump and drain pipe are not blocked by disconnecting the drain pipe from the undersink trap or waste pipe and lowering to a bowl on the floor. The water should drain out into this bowl under gravity if there are no blockages. Bear in mind if you have disconnected the drain pipe from an undersink pipe if youpour the drained water down the sink it will flood into your undersink cupboard. If this drains then you check the waste pipe or undersink trap is clear. You should also check the filter chamber if it is accessible on your washing machine (not all are). I would recommend you unplug the machine or take the fuse out of the switched socket before doing this. Drain the drum as above before doing this or you will get a gush of water coming out. You will usually have to remove a cover from the bottom of your machine to get to the filter chamber and twist it ant-clockwise to unscrew it. Check for any coins buttons etc trapped in there. If there is nothing there check the impeller will turn relatively easily by hand. If you still can't find the problem you might have a faield pump and I would recommend contacting an enginee

Wasing machine fills with water during washing and wont pump out filling the drum...

1. Empty the drum via the filter / trap at the front (there is sometimes a drain pipe near the filter - otherwise be prepared to use lots of towels to soak up the water).
2. Check / clean the filter.
3. Ensure that the drainage pipe is not blocked.
4. Check that the pipe from the pump to the waste water pipe is not kinked / blocked.
5. Check that the pipe from the drum to the pump is not blocked.
6. Does the pump sound like it's trying to work? If not, it could be that the pump is dead. Pumps can often become blocked with fluff / slime from the machine.

Good luck!

The screen is flashing F3, what does this mean?

the drain pump of the washing machine is either got loose or its not working or the drain pump is blocked. Water outlet fault (Grey Hose) If F3 is flashing in the display, there is a problem with drainage. Check: • that no objects are stuck in the drainage hose outlet. • that the drainage pump is not blocked by foreign objects. Clean the pump (see the "CLEAN THE PUMP" chapter MENTIONED BELOW FOR MORE HELP). • that there are no kinks in the drainage hose. ------------------ CLEAN THE PUMP Checking the trap and drainage pump The washing machine has a trap, where coins, hairpins and the like can get caught. To clean the filter and drainage pump: 1. Make sure the machine is empty of water and that it is switched off at the mains. 2. Open the hatch for the drainage pump as shown in the illustration. 3. Drain out the water, into a bowl, for example, by unhooking the drainage hose from the pin inside the hatch. 4. Unscrew the cover anti-clockwise and remove. 5.

Screw on the cover, replace the drainage hose on the hatch pin and close the hatch.

make sure that when you replace your filter that there is no obstruction in the filter thread(small stone), i have had many problems with this,if the drain light keeps comming on then check the waste pipe stand.

Where is the filter?

To find the filter you need to do the following steps. Find your lint trap. Lint traps in washing machines can be in the agitator (the large plastic piece in the center of the tub), at the top of the washer on the rim of the tub, or attached to the washing machine's drainage hose. Pull out the agitator tube to check for the lint trap. Peel any loose lint from the filter. Scrub away lint that doesn't peel off easily with a heavy-duty paper towel or a wet sponge. Feel your way around the top rim of the washing machine's basin. If you locate a trap, pull it straight out of the machine. Peel away loose lint and follow up with a wet sponge or heavy-duty paper towel. Check your machine's drainage hose for an attached lint trap. Remove the trap and peel the top layer of lint off. Rinse the trap in low-pressure, warm water. Reattach to the drainage hose. Check for and remove any lint or debris that may have dropped into the washing machine basin during the cleaning.

W6342 displays F3 on the front panel, what do I do?

F3 is a drain problem, check that the drain hose on the back is not kinked, if not then you may have a restriction in the drain pump. Follow these instructions:

The washing machine has a trap, where
coins, hairpins and the like can get caught.
To clean the filter and drainage pump:
1. Make sure the machine is empty of water
and that it is switched off or better still unplugged,

2: Open the hatch on lower front of machine for the drainage pump,

3: Drain out the water, into a bowl, for
example, by unhooking the drainage hose
from the pin inside the hatch. You may have to remove plug in the end of hose, be careful, as water should flow real good from hose, if water does not flow from hose and you see water inside of tub area with door closed then stop here and call a tech for repair, if water flows then allow water to fully drain out, then

4: Unscrew the cover anti-clockwise and
remove. You should then be able to see what is inside trap. More than likely you washed a rug and it came apart and blocked drain pump.

5: re-install in the reverse order and then try machine. In some cases you have to do this two or three times in a row to get it all out.

I am finding water in my machine when I go to use it. I leave the door open as well as the soap tray. Water is not present after washing, just the next time I go to use the machine.

Check for a faulty water inlet valve solenoid. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. A faulty solenoid can permit some water to leak through when the washer is idle. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
