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!

Hoover 600MB not spinning. Help please


NOTE: A 600 is not a fast spinner. towles and jeans etc do not come out very dry.
Helpful information prior to diagnose
Have you checked to see if the pump filter is blocked so that all the water can drain away.
Does the machine just stop with all it's water still in it.
Does the machine finish it's cycle.
Does all the water pump out, do you hear a sucking noise (means no water left) or a humming noise( means pump jammed)

How do you fix Error Code OE on defy laundromaid electrologic 1300 ? Machine washes, but when it should start to spin, nothing happens - it's just making a noise for a while, no water releases and then...


If draining is not completed in a specified time limit the fault code OE will be displayed.
Check the drain hose is free (not kinked or deformed) and check there is no dirt in the drain filter.
The filter is located behind a cover on the kick-panel at the front of the machine.

My Electrolux washer will not drain water or fill water, it will spin. It is also making a humming noise


You need to check for the Humming noise as this can be the indicator to the problem, if this comes from the motor then the capacitor is faulty. Failure to switch on the INLET and the DRAIN pump can be related to fault in the control panel or this can also be due to faulty electric line voltage on the outlet.. So please check this out.
Also check the inlet and drain filters for clogging as a clogged drain pump can also hum.

My defy laundromaid electrologic 1300 suddenly stops spinning and gives a ue error


I had the same problem: E9 error when switching the machine on. This indicates something is wrong with the pressure switch. (or connection to the pressure switch). When you open the top cover at the back of the machine it will be in the right hand corner (when looking from the back of the machine). This is a round device with a clear tube coming in at its bottom and a three wire connecting plug at its side. When unplugging I found one of the pins corroded (green tarnish). After cleaning it off with some steel wool the problem became intermittent - indicating the connection is not too sound. Just bending the pin slightly did the trick causing it to soundly make contact inside the plug. Problem solved!!

The wash cycle clicks on and a small amount of water enters the drum, as normal, but then there is just a humming noise and the drum does not move. When I put it on the rinse and spin cycle (there is...


I removed the bottom panel under the door and drained the the tub. There is a white filter housing that unscrews, but you need to have towels handy to catch the water that comes out. The machine appeared to work after that but it would'nt drain and it turns out that the humming noise was coming from the drain pump connected to the filter. I ordered a new drain pump assembly, which should be easy to replace since it is located at the front of the washing machine.

Turns on makes weird humming noise


The noise is most likely your drain pump trying to clear water from the sump area. If you remove the bottom screws holding the lower access panel in place, look for the drain pump and a block rubber hose connected to it. I suspect there is something preventing the pump from draining all the water. Remove the clamp holding the hose to the pump (have towels handy as there will be water) and clean out the sump, then put it back together and give the washer another try.

My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer is making a knocking and squeaking noise during the whole spin cycle. It sounds like it's coming from the drum mounts - what should we do?


My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer will not drain. I changed the lint filter, and insured that the drainage hose was free of debris. I removed all the wet clothes, wrung out the excess water, and redistributed the clothes. Still, no draining or spinning. Initially there was a humming sound, but now there is no sound at all when I try to restart the drain or spin cycles. All the lights are appropriately "on".
