    All hoses were removed and checked before the posting, the drum fills with water as per usual but doesn't even try to drain when it's supposed to. Think this may be an electrical fault.

Your machine is still under it's parts warrenty, if you call the company who made it you only have to pay them the call out charge and not for parts which would be cheaper than a new machine!

Most likely cause is there is something blocking the hose which exits the drum. Socks is the normal cause. You will need to remove the clip which attaches the hose to the underside of the drum. On some machines the pipes which form part of the pump housing can get coins jammed so check that too.

    check the voltage to the pump using a voltmeter. Set the meter for 240v ac range remove the wires from the pump and push the probes of the meter into the connectors on the cables. Set the machine to drain and see if your getting 240 to the pump, if your not check the continuity of the cable, if thats ok it must be the programmer. If you are gettin 240 volts change the pump.

Hotpoint aquarius 1300 wma56 not draining. I've taken out the filter and cleaned. Put all back together, did spin cycle - all good. ran a full wash. Now stuck with water in not draining or spinning.

The motor is not reversing direction when it is supposed to pump out the water from the machine. The timer may be the problem or the motor itself.

Hi our washing machine wont drain cleaned filter

if you can hear the pump pumping then there has to be a blockage in the drain hose or the sump hose (the hose that takes the water from the drum to the pump)..

LG washing machine. Fabric softener not being taken by dispenser drawer. It has been washed and the drain pump and filter also cleaned out. Problem remains so why is the conditioner not being taken?

Please remove power of the unit and this will reset the unit. Now select a program that is different from the earlier one and see if this works. Also check once again on the filter and check the dispenser drawer to be in place. Set the water level once again.Hope this helps.

My zanussi FJS1025W washing machine is showing the error code E20 and it wont let me spin or drain the water away. I have cleaned all the filter but still it wont do anything other than take in the water...

E20 is a draining error.
Check the filter.You need to take the filter out, empty it of all lint and replace it. It may have water trapped in already, so get a cloth ready to soak up excess liquid! Also, make sure when you put it back in you have tightened it enough to avoid leaking but not too much that you cannot get it back out.

If still the problem persists then the problem is with the draining pump.The pump is not pumping out the water.Check the pump impeller it may got stuck due to some obstacles.Replace it and this wont come again.

Thank You

It wont drain the water away after a wash we

sounds like your pump may be gone, or could be pipe blocked. to check pipe fill machine take outlet pipe at rear of machine and lay this into a bowl. If water flows ok then all pipes are clear. As water is coming through just put machine onto spin cycle and raise hose to see if water will then pump out.

My servis washing machine wont take in softner

Try a "good quality" name brand liquid softener. Some softeners out there are real thick and settle out to be paste. This problem was encountered by me and since I changed to a real liquid, it went away.

Have a Servis 1500 Easilogic washing machine. Decided last night that it won't do the spin cycle. Any ideas? Many thanks! Peter.

i used to deliver servis machines and exchange faulty ones, the most common problem was the regulator (the wash selection dial) they are not very sturdy and frequently break down. have you tried just a spin, without a wash.

Whirlpool front loader washing machine (AWO3361) WONT DRAIN

Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.
