Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Were you able to check the operation of the pump motor whilst the filter was removed?
If not I would recommend following through to the bit of my guidance notes marked with *.
-------------------------------------
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain 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!

Good luck!

Hi, I am not able to open the door of my Whirlpool washer dryer AWZ 5140 E after it finishes the cycle. It shows up E13 with ticking noise. There is no water left at this stage and I am able to open the...


E13 is a dispenser error the appliance diagnostic believes the appliance is full of water so won't release the lock first thing to try is the drain filter bottom right hand corner at the front unscrew it clean and refit just be prepared it's likely u will get some water out it when u remove it.

Hotpoint WMA76 - been on a normal wash cycle but wont spin to drain water - cycle finished, drum full of water and cant empty. How do we empty it to open machine?


Remove drain outlet hose from point where it discharges into waste pipe, and lay the hose down into a bucket or bowl, this should let the water syphon out, enabling you to open the door.

Door will not open on my WM1480FHD after wash


Hi ii_goldie,What about the RINSE cycle... maybe the washer knows the "full cycle" is NOT finished.

The washer will display DONE... and make the door available to you. If not the cycle may not be finished. OR, turn it off, however, DON'T open the door if your machine has not drained all the water out, allow the system to finish.

Flashing F what is this


This is usually too much detergent or severely out of balance load. Unplug the washer, this will allow you to open the door to re-balance or eliminate very heavy items from the drum. Close door re-plug and restart machine. If this doesn't do the trick repeat the unplug and reset the dial to rinse/spin to clear excess detergent once finished restart normal wash cycle.

Wash doesn't go through full cycle


I have a Maytag model A490 clothes washer. It works fine up to the rinse cycle and then shuts down. When it reaches this point it has become necessary to manually advance the dial a short ways whereupon it will fill with water and complete the rinse and spin cycles. This happens on both the regular and the permanent press cycles. What needs to be done to fix this problem?

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!


hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Unit will not turn on at all. Power source definately works. Unsure if unit stopped during dry cycle or finished and never came back on, but clothes were dry, indicating it was finished with the wash...


To open the door. First kill the power supply. There is a vaccum switch as part of the door lock which has a small diameter pipe connecting from the lock to the a vaccum container mounted on or near the pump remove this pipe to allow air in to the switch. Whilst you are in the process clear the vaccum container, pump and all pipes leading to and from pump of debris (usually lime scale related). Then reconnect everything. Put a cup full of soda crystals in drum and wash on hottest temperature.
