Question about Washing Machines
My washing machine has stopped draining the water out and therefore does not complete the cycle. The machine stops and the lights just flash. I have drained the water and checked for anything that might have caused any blockages in the front of the machine as per the instructions booklet but have found nothing. There is also a noise which I can only guess is coming from the pump. It almost sounds like something stuck in there but don't know how to get to the pump to take a look.
The pump is usually located under the unit, attached to the motor or belt driven. If not sure, it should have two 1 1/2 inch hoses attached to it. Something may be stuck in it or the bearings maybe wore out & it needs replaced. Pumps are not that expensive. Powder detergent will wear them out faster also!

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. The fault specified seems an over load or over current in the motor. So remove motor and check to confirm.Make sure there is no jamming of the aggitator or the drive, and too much of load. Power off and reset.
