SOURCE: drain

Check the hose from the pump to the outlet, sometimes it can get blocked.
Make sure you can hear the pump working, you should be able to hear it running.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: pump pre chamber lid wont open

I have a PWE8168 and assuming yours has a similar arrangement:
1) Switch off water and electricity feeds;
2) Pull the washing machine forward a sufficient distance to allow you to tip it back so that you can gain access to the area next to the pre chamber lid. I found my tool box was handly at propping up the front!
3) A torch is handy at this point. Lie on the floor, and use a pair of mole grip pliers to release the springs securing the pipe attached to the left of the pre chamber filter (looking from the front of the machine).
4) Note that if you have not been able to drain your machine already your should have some towels/cloths and (eg) a tuppaware container ready to collect all the water.
5) Slide the pipe off and you should be able to get your fingers into the pump pre chamber and fish out whatever is jamming both the pump and the lid. I got a 5p piece for my troubles!

I would not say that this is a particularly difficult procedure and apart from water collecting, should only take 20 minutes, including reconnecting the pipe.

Honda Accord 1993 EX is stuck on Park. It doesn't budge if I start the car and it doesn't budge if i try to shift to N,P,D4,D3


Use your ignition key and stick it straight down into the slot marked shift lock, next to the shifter. That will allow you to shift it into neutral. Leave it there, remove the key from that slot and start the car. You will then be able to shift into drive, from neutral, and be on your way.

Won't spin on last cycle


The pump is supposedly self cleaning.

There's a 'pre-chamber' behind a panel at the bottom on the front. The top of the panel should tilt forward & up. Turn the 'pre-chamber' anti clockwise, after putting a shallow tray under it to catch the small amount of water that may be there.

I think I have a pdf manual (found on web somewhere) on another computer, I'll have a look & send it to you if you can give me an email address.

Getting to water pump


To gain access to the pump, remove lower plastic cover at front by prising down with a screwdriver, and remove same.
You will see the pump pre-chamber cover, unscrew it anticlockwise,and check for anything in there .
Refit cover and refit plastic panel.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

Indesit widl 102 extra rinse button always on!


Check that the button isn't stuck it if not remove top lid and check the PCB and see if the switch hasn't collapsed causing it to be on all the time. Also if you hold in the go button for about 5 seconds this resets the program try this.

Thanks J
