Indesit WDG1295W. Why doesn't it drain?


The pump and connecting lines could be choked with debris the filter didn't catch.

Smeg Dishwasher not circulating water


Sound like the thermostat doesn't know what the water temperature is set at.

It could be the wash pump. Check to see that the float on the bottom of the DW is unstuck by gently picking it up and setting it down { It is shaped like a mushroom and controls the water level in the bottom of the DW }. Did it move freely?

Indesit iwb5113 keeps filling up


The water level in your, and most other, washing and dishwashing machines is controlled by an air pressure switch that senses water level by the rising air pressure compressed in the pressure, (level), switch body itself. This air pressure is usually transmitted by a thin rubber tube on the bottom of the washing machine drum, or sump hose. As the water gets higher in the drum, air is compressed in the level switch until it operates, and turns the fill valves off. The pressure switch is always mounted at the top of the washing machine cabinet - look for a circular switch with the thin rubber or plastic tube fitted into the bottom. What can happen is if the rubber tube rubs against moving parts in the washer, it can get a hole worn in it - so the air does not compress and the water doesn't turn off.. You will have to examine the tube very carefully to find holes like this. Alternatively, the tube could have come off, or blocked with limescale at the bottom end - try removing the tube at the pressure switch end and blowing through it - any blockage must be removed. A last, rare, possibility is the rubber diaphragm in the pressure switch is leaking - but very very rare. Most modern machines have an electronic backup that measures fill time in case the pressure switch fails. If your machine floods, it doesn't have this.

Washing machine not draining water


Hi.

Disconnect power, then move the machine forward and check the drain hose at the back of the machine. Check if the hose is kinked or blocked and check that the hose height setting is as from manual. If the hose elbow is set at incorrect height the water will be siphoned back inside the tub.

Access the drain pump filter (this is located behind front-bottom access trim or door ). If there is blockage in there the water will not be drain completely. Remove trim, unscrew the cap and be prepared to collect water. Ensure that power is off. Remove any blockage in there.

lean or replace the pressure switch and the rubber hose connected to the pressure switch. This device detects water level and stops drain when there is no more water.

If all that does not help, then the drain pump itself must be tested. In some rare case the main control module may be defective. Test all the rest first.

The problem is usually given by blockage, drain hose or by pressure switch.

Regards.

Machine not draining water will spin but water left in machine clothes not washed keeps cutting out on cycle


Hi.

Move the machine and check the drain hose. If the hose elbow is set at incorrect height the water will be siphoned back inside the tub.
Access the drain pump filter (front-bottom access door or trim on most front-loader, underneath for top-loader). If there is blockage in there the water will not be drain completely.
Clean or replace the pressure switch and the rubber hose connected to the pressure switch. This device detects water level and stops drain when there is no more water.
In some rare case the main control module may be defective. Test all the rest first.

My Hoover Ultracare 1300 washing machine has just stopped before the spin - full of water. I have tried several options but can't get it to move at all from that. It will rinse and move clothes around, but...


Yes. the pump may be blocked. look at the bottom of the washing machine front and you will see a flap undoo this and take out any bitts stuck in. Caution. Make sure the washing machine is un pluged and when you unscrew that plug. all of the water will come out of the machine. Best to do it outside. If that dose not work it means the pump has blown.

The water will not drain out of the wash tub


The water drains out of the washing machine but the other day when I moved the washer I noticed that I could feel water sloshing around in the bottom of the drum but nothing is leaking on the floor.

F18 Error


the error is caused by a blockage in the pump you need to drain the washer using the black tube near the pump drain or by unscrewing the pump cover next to it on excel 8kg washer these are at bottom right of machine. when all water out remove pump cover that you loosened to get water out then check for blockages inside. the pump has a device inside that should move round freely remove all debris replace and try to drain using drain cycle this will finish and hey presto back to normal!!

Repair of samsung (karisma ) washing machine


Hi,

Water draining is indicative that the drain valve is left open allowing water to escape even during regular/wash cycle and not only on drain/wash cycle completion. this could be brought about by:
1. laundry material, debris, safety pin, clips or some other foreign material has lodged itself prohibiting the drain valve in closing properly; or
2. the mechanism (solenoid) closing the valve is jammed in the open position.

Corrective measure calls for inspection and possibly cleaning or solenoid/control mechanism repair or replacement. Often these can be found at the bottom or near bottom of the machine below the tub.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
