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 both the filter and the motor ;-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 most are 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!

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA58 washes, spins but won't drain water away !


I would check the filter assembly and the drain line to see if there is an obstruction visible or twist in the line that you could smooth out. The drain solenoid valve could be faulty and just isn't opening any longer. It's an electrically operated valve that makes a rather loud "click" when it energizes to open the drain and let the water flow out.

Water will not drain


just wait until summer because it's the time of the year that evaporation is faster, because of that, the water inside your washing machine will evaporate asap!

How make the door open automatically when finish the laundry


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa,

These model of Asko ( based on the number listed ) do not have such an option. On these models the Program Control knob must be at the end of a program (at the 12:00 or zero position) to open the glass door.

If you need to stop or interrupt a program after you start the machine, turn the Program Control knob

to 10 (Drain). Any water in the machine will be pumped out and you can then press the Door Open

button ( ) to open the door. To restart the washer, close the door and turn the controls to the desired
settings.

On the electronic control models, if you need to open the glass door during a wash or rinse cycle, press and hold the Door Open button for three seconds. The machine will stop and automatically drain enough water so the door can be opened safely. The program will resume when you close the door. The inlet valve will come on to

ensure the proper water level.


In case of mechanical failure, you can use the Emergency Door Opener located by the drain pump. To use the Emergency Door Opener, remove the screw holding the cord handle (loop) and pull the cord down.


Hope this answers your question even if it isn't necessarily the answer you wanted. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.


Regards,


Macmarkus :)

I have an Electrolux EW 548 F Washing machine. It stopped while in a cycle and it won't continue or let me open the door to get the clothes out.


Hello,
It sounds as if something has got stuck in the filter jamming the drain pump,try draining the water out either through the filter but beware of the amount of water.Or take the drain pipe at rear and try to drain iinto a container or through the nearest door to an outside drain.Once the water is out you should be able to open the door.Then you will have to find out if some object is stuck in the filter(located at bottom right hand side).

Try the following.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to the bottom of the drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside the hose.
Remove the black hose onto the pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here and in the pump.
Hopefully, this will solve your problem.
Good luck.

Door wont open


The door switch could have stuck closed. there is a way to open it up manually.
if you can just access the water pump filter cover, and at the back part of the door switch you will find a plastic ring attached to the door switch, pull it down to open the door.

drain first the water if there is water left in the unit by slowly opening the water drain filter cover and drain the water slowly.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Under filling


Check your drain hose. It should be at the same height as the top of your machine. If not high enough, make a loop that is high enough. The water could be syphoning out of machine as it fills.

Inside of Washer Smells


often in washing machines there is a drain trap which needs cleaning out from time to time, (usually accessible from the front behind a removable facia) The manual should tell you how to clean this. you need to drain the water first (as there is often a little water still in the system). if you look on the program dial there is often an item that has an arrow pointing down, this should be the drain program, after this is done you can remove the draining cover and clean the workings inside, hopefullt this will solve your problem :)
