Front Load Washing machine won't spin, drain or rinse

I have an electrolux Front load machine and it stopped working in the middle of the cylce. Water is in the machine, the drain, rinse and spinning buttons won't, all its does is make a strange noise. I turned it off and tried to open the door to let the water out but door won't open...any ideas on what I could do??? By the way, I live in Europe! Thanks, Megan

    My 1 1/2 year old front loading Frigidaire Affinity was washing fine. With 17 minutes left, it just started making a strange noise (like when it rinses but not right). The clothes were soaking wet and had some water in the bottom. I stopped it and tried restarting it....still making the strange noise. I tried just spinning it.....still, just the strange noise. No matter what setting I put it on, it just makes that strange noise and does nothing.

If you have a shop vac this is time to vacuum the water of the tub and all the way down the drain hole for the next stage usally i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water out of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case. Now remove the two screws on the front lower panel and pull the panel
in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take a piece of water hose with one end cut off and run it down the pump to drain end of the drain and reassemble the unit

    Take out your exit hose from behind the machine, try to drain at floor level. Be prepared for a lot of water. Then switch on the machine and press "end of cycle"; try the door after a lapse of 2 minutes.



    Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Washing Machine is not draining in rinse cycle to go to spin cycl


you both seem to have bad lid switches. A bad lid switch will prevent draining and spinning.
