CHeck the impeller underneath the machine is not blokced by a sock, clothes peg or dust bunnies - reach underneath and you will feel a 6 bladed fan about the size of a bathplug. This is what drives the pump that empties the machine. Give it a little spin with your fingers and it should start to empty out again

Check the drain hose (water outlet) to see that it is not kinked to stop up the flow.

SOURCE: washing machine not spinning or draining water

I have the same washer, WT-R801. Does the machine stop all together when the spin cycle arrives?, if so check the pump on the drain. Mine was burnt out. Its available for $61.00 delivered from Adelaide. Steve.

SOURCE: washing machine problem

it could be that the carbon brushes need changing on the motor. you can drain the machine if there is water in it by disconnecting the outflow pipe from the u-bend under the sink and lowering it into a bucket. This will empty any water in the machine (most of it any way), at the same time you can check for blockages in the outflow pipe while it is disconnected. If the machine is at least five years old then the carbon brushes are easy enough to change yourself, they are seated each side of the motor which will be on top of the machine. Simply carfully disconnect the electric cables on each carbon brush, gently slide them out and replace them by carefully sliding the new ones back into place and then connecting the electric cables again. The carbon brushes for hotpoints were universal for the older models 5 years old or more, but the newer version have cleverly put the motors on the bottom and are hard if not impossible to get to. You will then need to call out an engineer. Always make sure that you disconnet from the mains before touching anything within the machine, and if you are not confident in what you are doing the don't do it, call an engineer.

SOURCE: Bosch WFF1201 Washing Machine, wont drain

To access the pump filter, remove lower plastic panel at front of washer, there you will see the filter, unscrew filter cover anti clockwise, remove and clean filter.
You will probably find that whatever was causing the clicking noise is something in the filter.
If you can't see anything in it , then have a look inside the pump housing before you replace filter.
Plz rate my solution .
Thanks.

SOURCE: Washing machine will not drain all the water. If

there is always a little water left in the drum assembly when done pumping. however it is usually well below the level of the clothes basket/drum so that there is none contacting the clothes when at rest.
if you can actually visibly see water within the clothes basket/drum when the cycle is complete, then check below.
have you lengthened the drain hose beyond the standard length to reach to your taller than normal sewer/drain inlet??? if so then you're getting more water returning to the unit when the pump shuts off and if the extra hose is long enough then theres enough water returning to your tub so that the basket sits in water at rest..
if so you'll need to install a check valve to keep the additional water from going backwards into your unit. some of these units have one built into the drain hose where it connects to the pump.. i tried looking yours up via the model # listed on the 1st page but got nowhere with that number.

you could also have a restriction in your pump or drain assembly that may be slowing things down some.. can't be of more help without proper model # though..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

E5 error on Onida washing machine Need solution


5E. This means the washing machine has a "water drain error". It's basically timed out on empty, it's tried draining out the water for 10 minutes and the water level still hasn't fallen below a specified level (or at least it thinks it hasn't). This error should be reset by pressing the Start/Pause button though if there is a fault it will need fixing or the error will just return.
A washing machine not emptying the water can have various causes as can a washing machine thinking it hasn't drained the water because it's possible that the signal telling the machine that the water has gone can sometimes not be triggered if a fault in the pressure system prevents it.
To troubleshoot this problem the first thing to check is the pump filter, which could be blocked. I have extensive advice on diagnosing pump faults here Washing machine won't drain water (stuck full of water) ' Faults on pressure system

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.


Either your pressure in the main line bringing water to your machine is insufficient; or your intake water valve is defective; which you can replace easily.

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.


You have an open solenoid on your water valve where the fill hoses connect. Change the water valve and you should be good.
