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 and many machines will not go to spin or release the door lock if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general pre-typed (!) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain pump/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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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!

I have a 2001 holden astra 1.8 Having fuel pump probs weak light on testing wires to the pump cant find fuse or relay to it??


Hi Lonnie I'm assuming that when the test light was used that the pump wiring was disconnected, if not the light would show dim. If the pump is faulty as soon as the ignition was switched on the pump would draw a heavy load inturn giving a weak light. There should be a fuse for the pump but i don't recall a relay on that year Astra. However it would be unusual to have an issue with the supply. Do you have a hand book for this vehicle this would be the best place to look for the fuse number. Make sure the pump is disconnected and use a test light between power and earth if light is good then sounds like a pump issue. If you have a no start issue whilst turning the key to crank get a second person to give the bottom of the tank a few solid thumps with the side of a closed fist sometimes this is enough to get the vehicle started if this works then you can be sure at least 90% sure your looking at a pump issue. Please be careful you are dealing with petrol and electricity not a good combination so before carrying out any tests i would strongly advise a qualified person to carry out any tests.Good Luck.

I have a 2002 XL7 and today the ABS and the hand break light came on. Any idea what can cause this.Also what is the fix.


verify the brake fluid level, if its low, it may be time for brake service. If the level is OK, then the ABS will need to be scanned for codes.

Replaced windshield washer pump, lines are clear, but won't work.


check fuses and/or wiring harness attached to pump. Use a continuity light (10-15 dollars at any auto store) and check to see the pump is getting electricity by having a friend turning on the washer pump and placing the continuity light probe on the electrical connector to the pump and the fues. if you have no light come on when you place the continuity light to the wiring harness then its a ground wire or the fuse.

Transmission light is on in the bmw 528i


add transmission fluid. DOT 4 is reverse compatible with DOT 3. the car must be at running temp to do this. the car must be running to add fluid. the car must be level to do this. The new fluid must be pumped in. That being said......the local quick lube place is the best place to go. Too many people crush themselves under a running car to safely do it themselves.

Removal and installation of diffuser and impeller kit


All jucuzzi pumps are some of the most difficult to repair.Pump front should seperate from body(volute) of pump by means of screws, or some kind of band. Diffuser should have ss screws, or
be held in plsce by notches or both. Impellor spins counter clockwise to come off. Can only remove impellor with impellor wrench, or very strong hand. Rear of motor must be held in place with normally a 7-16 wrench, allen head wrench or screwdriver. Depends on manufacturer of motor. Then impellor can be removed!
Should replace shaft seal under impellor. Can seperate body of pump from motor by turning four outer bolts on back of motor. Must mark rear cover of motor so lines up exact for reassebly. Ussually 1/4 inch socket wrench.Seal can be pushed out from back to front with the corrrect size socket and a very light hammer.
Try to factory Jacuzzi seal, they are better than aftermarket.
Coat rubber on seal with light silicone, and press back into place without touching or marring seal face. Best way is use other half of seal (spring piece) to gently but firmly reseat seal. Examine body from rear to make sure seal seats. Reassemble as taken apart, or just take to a qualified service tech at a well established pool/spa place. Kirk
