Question about Washing Machines

Drain all clear

I did all that and the little propellers seem to be free. I tried to pit it on spin and it seems that the drum is not moving, could that be the problem, it is draining, but the drum won't move.

During the wash cycle it seems to hang up and will not advance. At this point there is a growl in the machine. After a little time passes 5d showed up on the timer

the drain pump has failed & needs to be replaced. the propeller on the drain pump breaks off but stays loosely on the shaft while it is still spinning smashing into the filter and this is your noise as well as a coin or two or nail or hair clip one of these kind of things would have come out of someones pocket in the wash made its way down to the pump and broke the flimsy plastic propeller.

We think we overloaded the machine with bath mats and since then the water did not drain and the machine does not work any more. All buttons are flashing.

your pump is totaly clogged with the math matt sand
you should be able to access the pump from the rear wall,
bring towels you will loose water

remove both hoses from the pump and ensure they are clear, wash the drain hose completly run water through it

make sure you pump is clean and free
to spin

reassemble and and plug back in

errors should clear

I have an equator PLS600 and I can't seem to get it to work. I have tried the WikiFix to help a stalled dishwasher, by adding water and vinegar. When I put on the wash cycle it does not run. Even with the...

Give the spray arm a spin to make sure it rotates. It should spin freely. If not, remove plastic spray arm clip, flip it over, replace it, and try again. Make sure holes in the spray arm are clear of debris. Spray arm must be clean for it to spin. If spray arm does spin freely, remove spray arm clip, spray arm and the post assy (the thing the spray arm attaches to). Try your WikiFix again. This time add baking soda to the hole the post assy came from. Top it off with white vinegar. Leave it overnight. In the morning, stick your finger down the hole where the spray arm assy sat. You should feel a plastic thing. This is a propeller attached to the recirculation pump. You need to free it up. Get that thing moving with your pinky or a chopstick or whatever. Try the machine without the spray arm. You should get water blasting up from the hole. Reassemble the spray arm.
