We just had the same problem and it made a horrible noise when the pump was trying to work, then it stopped altogether and nothing was happening. We were able to get the door open after several minutes, remove the washing, detach waste pipe to release water, remove the kick panel on front, remove the filter and release the rest of water. It turned out there were two hair grips stuck in the part that turns inside the front there. We removed them and turned it back on and it works great! Saved us at least £32!

hi there,
If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:


* If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt.
To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it
doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn,
replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


* If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin
and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the
door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the
switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


It pumps, but doesn't spin
If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

* The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside
the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top
or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


* The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small,
relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the
motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


* A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or
badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing
machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


* The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper
spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the
clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance
repair technician.


* The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation
the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to
burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace
the entire motor.


* The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a
transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the
unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem,
you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


* The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub
to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during
the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed
For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch
prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.



* Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the
water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the
fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so,
completely replace it.

Indesit WLA111 stuck on rinse cycle


There is a drain plug and filter under the drum. You access it from the front by taking the panel under the door off. Get ready for lots of water to come out when you take the drain plug off. Clean out the area of the filter and drain plug.

see this causes: and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump If the washer won't drain the pump belt might have broken or might have worn out. Check the belt and replace if it shows signs of excessive wear.

Drain Pump If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

Clogged Pump or Hose If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Drive Belt If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all.

Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Drain Hose If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions.

Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If you have cleaned the drain filter AND checked the operation of the drain motor, for Hotpoint (and the manufacturer Indesit) E5 states ' pressure switch jammed on full or pump blocked- check switch and module'. Sometimes there can be bad connections between plugs/cables/module (PCB). If you haven't done already please make sure that the pump does actually work by removing the filter, seeing the pump motor and putting the machine on spin. You should see it rotate! Otherwise it looks like a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

hi friend,
If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many
washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub
that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's
attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the
hoses
from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the
large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator,
top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might
be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be
turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably
has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the
pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen
or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your
washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the
washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck
in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

* If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


* If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
