Hi i have a 9.5kg simpson washing machine error code PU31 what does that mean as my machine is not spinning out washing


Pump error. It means drain pump is either blocked or faulty. Water is not draining out or very slowly. Water has to all drain away before the machine will spin. Get the water out by lowering the drain hose down into a bucket. When machine is empty then remove and check the drain pump.

Whirlpool awm 1200/1


check the pump to see if anything is clogged in there or you could have a bad pump,open the door and look around the opening and you'll see the full model number.also if it stops at the rinse cycle does it fill with water and the water is in there but doesn't drain or are the clothes just sitting there wet,because when in rinse the machine just uses cold water and if the valve is clogged or filling slowly the washer will stop after like 6 minutes,does any error codes come up?you can try to start the washer just on cold water and see if the water fills slowly or if it comes in normally,if it comes in slow most likely that will be your problem,if it is the pump you can get a shop vac and suck out the water from the drain hose,get it as close to the floor as you can and it will work better,then remove the center part of the pump,the clean out and see if it's filled with stuff,turn it slowly,when water comes out vac it up with shop vac until it stops.hope this helps you out.

Washing comes out soaking wet


Drain pump clogged or not working. When in spin cycle check hose to see that water is draining. If water is draining slowly clean pump out. If no water draining, replace pump.

After water drains from drumand machine stop it slowly starts to leak from bottom . Pump is still full off water should it not be empty?


No the pump should and must have some water in it at all times if ALL water out the seal in it will burn up (water makes a excellent lubricant frreze it and it becomes very slippery)

Water pumping in very slowly and uneven flow


Hi,
The washer filling so slowly can get very irritating and frustrating..most of the time the fix is very simple. The hoses have a screen in them to catch any dirt that may come in the water and this screen plugs up.
Simply unhook the hoses at the washer and clean the screens.

This tip will explain this in more detail for you..

Water not pumping through, though steamer works and it makes noise.


You need to get the pump "primed" with water going through it.

If the machine is new or has not been used in a long time, the plastic feed tube(s) in the reservoir will be dry. You have to get the water to slowly creep up these tubes until it hits the pump inside, then the water/steam will come out the head and will keep coming out each time you use it until it dries out again.

I've had to re-prime my Via Veneto several times, and each time it seems like I'm doing it wrong and the machine is broken. But follow these steps and you'll get there.

1. Fill the reservoir with water and put the two tubes in it.
2. Turn on the boiler button (left-most of the two narrow ones)
3. Don't put the portafilter on, just leave the head bare.
4. Turn on the pump and let it run. Watch the water level in the plastic tubes. Understand that at this point, the pump is just pumping air, which it is not designed to do efficiently. As it pumps the air it slowly draws water up the tubes. Really slowly.
5. You can speed this up by putting a cup under the steam tube and opening the steam valve. This is while the brewing pump is still on. You will have hot water squirting out of the steam tube. You may see the water moving more quickly up the tubes.
6. The pump may have to run for several minutes. You'll get impatient and scared something is wrong, but just let it run. You'll see the water creep up the tube and go into the unit. Soon afterward pressurized water will start spraying out of the head.

Now, keep it primed for months by keeping water in the reservoir. If you use it only infrequently, run the pump and at least get some water moving every week or so.

I've tried silly things like holding the tubes upside down, trying to get water forced up into them, but in the end, just let the pump do the work and be patient.

WHIRLPOOL WASHING MACHINE AWO/D 5716 - CANNOT LOCATE PUMP


Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!
