it is the drain pump, it is nt working due to lack of power entering its supply line or there is something stuck in the impeller,or its winding failed, u can check it by observing or wait till machine reach the drain cycle when you hear a humming sound during the drain cycle, you isolated already the supply to the drain pump it means the drain pump is working but there is something blocking the hose,impeller and or the pump motor is weak already. if so, call an authorized servicer or service fr the company to do the job, or if u want to fix it by yourslf, first lay down the hose of the machine at floor level, water will comes out, drain it,with that it means no problem with the water line from the tub of the machine to the drain hose, remove the back cover from there u can see the pump get a mechanical plier to remove the clamp,slide the pump or unscrew it if is installed that way then u can check now the pump physically, sometimes small pins is blocking the impeller if there is nothing and when you touch pump is so hot-it is electrically defective-the winding is weak or just what i have said earlier it is blocked or mechanically defective -replace the pump assy- u can order it -try www. repair clinic .com

How to operate the washing machines front load washer brandt bf850


Hi,
  • Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.

  • Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
  • Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
  • Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
  • Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
  • Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.

  • Please rate this solution. Regards.

    Hoover Zodiac 12 that won't spin.


    possible filter blockage, or the pump has failed/seized, machine CANNOT spin while it CONTAINS WATER, the door interlock will not open for the same reason,WATER in drum.
    manually drain excess water into a bowl now
    1 clean filter, 2 check pump for objects that prevent impeller working may still need pump if seized
