Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Supra washer/dryer combo leaking significantly


In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

I have an LG washer dryer combo model No. wd-1481rd, it will not drain on the display panel it has "OE" diplayed when put onto drain cycle i have tried to go through complete other cycles and...


Check for clogged/kinked drain hose then open the small door at the lower left of the machine. Located behind the small door is the drain filter and the emergency drain hose. Remove the drain plug and drain the water into a container that's enough to hold such. You may need to drain the water by gravity by placing the drain hose (main) over a container. Position the container as low as possible to extract as much water. Once fully drained, remove the drain filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Place a piece of the towel under the filter to catch residual water. Clean the filter and try to reach in the pump impeller and check it for restriction or damage. Replace the drain pump if the impeller is damaged or restricted and cannot be freed, or if it just whirs but water doesn't drain.

1) 1st check the filter under the machine (it unscrews behind the access panel 2) open front door and pull back the rubber membrane to see metal and clean out the debris blocking drain holes 3) remove the drain hose from the machine (spring clip) and try and run water thru it and keep blowing out the junk and re-attach 4) run the machine thru 2 cleaning cycles w/bleach and without bleach 5) start using less detergent

I have a Splendide 2000 s vented washer and dryer. I started a load and there was water leaking all over my floor from the washer, so I immediately turned it off. Now I'm trying to get those clothes out...


Unplug it. Door latch has thermal delay. Unplug, let cool 3 minutes, open door.
After door is open, you can kill the delay: with door open remove rubber boot to access gap between door & drum, remove door catch from cabinet, glue, break or unwire delay parts & replace all. Do this with safety glasses, the spring holding rubber boot can be a bit jumpy.
Your leak I know nothing of.

AEG Washer dryer will not complete cycle


I ended up trying the machine on a few different cycles all of which failed to complete. Finally tried a 'Drying' only cycle and it emptied out quite alot of water which was odd. It now seems fine. guessing it was a blockage and a certain amount of water was backed up in the machine??? any clarity welcome.

WD12 Indesit washer/dryer


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: Timer- If your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. Water supply problem- If water doesn't enter the machine when you start the process- check water entrance pipe, myaybe it was bend (if you have there a tap - see it is open). Check that water entrance valve works (it is an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it doesn't get power, it seems that the problem is with the timer unit. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve.
