    I had the same problem. Yes the small white tube was the problem. The tube was resting against the inside of machine casing and had worn through, so the vacum/air pressure wasn't working. There are sponge blocks on the tube to prevent the tube from touching the side but mine were in the wrong position. So to fix this I looked at removing the tube and finding a new one. Halfway into trying to remove the tube I realised it was going to take a while.
    So I cut the worn piece of tube out and replaced it with some retic tubing. The retic fitted nicely inside the white tubeing and I used 2 small zipties to secure in place.
    So my problem was slightly different to rhonddap but the same tube was involved.

    Hi, I have the same problem with the same machine ( manufactured around 2006). I bought it second hand 4 years ago in good order. I have checked the top part where the electronics are...everything seems in order including the white tube. All secure. So I took off the silver back. Again , all secure. I have checked the white tubing it seems all fine. Help. I have been taking all my washing to the laundromat which is expensive. I cannot afford a new second hand machine or a serviceperson. Any clues please.
    Everything else seems to be working except it doesnt recognise when to stop filling and just keeps filling. Therefore it doesnt start the wash cycle. I "managed" 2 loads by changing from the filling to the rinse and spin.It doesnt give the clothes a wash though.I swished it around in the wash bowl and then it drained and spun. Spins fine. Drains fine. Ive just paid over $100 for a new adjitator which I fitted myself three weeks ago.HELP

My Eziset Simpson 550 won't spin

either the motor brushes are badly worn
or the pump cant clear out the water

i would say check the brushes they should be quite long if they are shorter than 3/4 inch then replace them

Simpson eziset 550 wont power up the power point definitely works and I have tested the machine on off switch

There is a fuse on the circuit board for this model. It just pops out of its holder. They go all the time.

Replace with a 4Amp Slow blow fuse.

They cost about $10 from Simpson (Electrolux), or you\'ll get a box of 6 or so from Dick Smith for a couple of bucks

Eziset 550 Drains as it fills

Replace the fuse inside the control panel make sure you turn if off.
depending on where you are the fuse is more than likly a "4amp slow blow" fuse

Simpson eziset 550 stops at rinse cycle, light flashing

I had the same problem before, but removing the kink in drain hose does the trick. Maybe yours is more complicated but try it.
