Question about Hotpoint WMA46 Front Load Washer
Hi, the machine run through it's cycle but does is no longer able to drain the water. I believe the hoses are clear of bockages.
Thanks for the suggeston, after further investigation I found the drain pump impeller to be siezed due to pieces of material wrapped around it, also the particle filter from the drum was clogged up. All cleared and now machine is working correctly.

When the machine is full of water detach the waste pipe from wherever it is connected i.e under the sink or some other type of drainage ..
Lay the pipe on the floor (ground level ) if the water comes out then their is no blockage and you need a new drain pump.
easy to change with the slightest of mechanical knowlegde

Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I understand that your Electrolux washer is not draining properly. Some possibilities for your washer not draining could be an issue with the drain pump or control panel. You should additionally check the drain hose to make sure there are no restrictions. If your washer continues to not drain properly you should seek assistance from a professional to repair the appliance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Hi - I understand you will like to know where to find pump and check for clogs. Try the following steps below and hope it is helpful:
To completely clear any clogs in the washing machine drain you will use a pipe auger (snake). Start at the roof plumbing vent and drop cable to roughly 10 or 15 feet past the actual drain. If there is a clog present, the snake will bring up a chunk of debris. Remove it from the top of the vent and discard.
The drain hose is visible toward the bottom of this washing machine. It is held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws.
Remove the drain hose from the back of the washing machine. This is normally held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws. When a drain backup occurs, pieces of debris can lodge in the hose, causing clogs and odors.
Soak the hose in a bucket of warm bleach water.
Soak the drain hose in a bucket of warm water mixed with 1 cup of bleach. Look to see if the line is free of obstructions. Run a small length of clothes hanger through the hose to clear any hard debris.
Reattach drain hose and connect to drain pipe.
Reattach the drain hose using a screwdriver or pliers. Insert the hose into the washing machine drain. Be sure it is all the way into the drain opening.
Run the washer through a full cycle with 2 cups of bleach added.
Cycle the washer with warm water and 2 cups of bleach. The bleach will help remove any odor-causing particles in the machine and drain hose. Running the washing machine through a cycle will help flush away any remnants of the drain pipe clog.

For the LD error please check for the following:
Note: Do NOT add any additional detergent. This will remove much of the remaining detergent held in the fabric. This step may have to be repeated to remove all the detergent.
