Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently 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 even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my 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!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Home Comfort HCWP1201 Portable Washing Machine doesn't spin...


Sounds like the belt is either broken or slipped off,or the pulleys on the motor or basin are not turning. Most likely it will be the belt. If you can open the panel you should be able to see the problem. If it is the belt,you may find the part at any appliance shop and fix it yourself. If the pulleys are not turning the belt,there could be a few different reasons for this. You would have to look at them and find out why. They may be fixable but it would depend on the specific problem. If the machine is still under a warranty,it would be best to take it to the dealer.

GE washer wont drain or spin, lid switch has been replaced and so has the timer. At the start of cycle it fills and aggitates properly.


If the machine tries to spin for a few seconds and shuts down because the tub is full of water, then - The first thing I would do is check the pump. You may have something blocking the pump or the pump could have failed. Newer models built within the last 10 - 15 years must drain their water down first before they are able to spin.

My Frigidaire front load washer model no. GLTF2940E, is about 5 years old. It has always worked fine. Last week the spin cycle left some cloths wet and now when I start it, it only allow about 5 seconds...


Sounds like you have faulty water inlet valves. They may not be opening fully. You can test the power to the valves with a voltmeter to see if the power is quitting or if the valves are malfunctioning

Hotpoint WT761 washing machine - Error code F-10 The machine is filling with water, then signalling F-10, then pumping the water out. So the fill solenoid and the pump are working OK. If I set the machine...


Thats strange, F10 means no cold fill.
Ok back to basics, you can check the pressure switch by taking off the tube and gently blowing into it and I mean gently, you should hear a click if its ok - make sure the other end is'nt blocked, blow it out with a cycle pump near the drum end

Not draining all the time


I had this same problem with my washer a few years ago. I finally opened it up and found that there was a dime inside the pump blocking the outlet for the water. Sometimes the dime would not perfectly block the hole, so it would work fine, and then the next day it wouldn't work. No idea on how it got inside the pump, but I got it out finally. It could also be a problem with the timer......I would say you should at least call a service company and ask them first.

Both the intake and drain lights are flashing


There are several simple solutions, one is reading the instruction manual. Check Intake: is any water entering? is it slow? This machine filters debris from the supply water so check the water intake filter. It is inside the end of the intake hose end against the home. Rinse it clean.
Drain: The same fault appears if the drain is clogged. Check if the lint trap is perfectly clean. Check the impeller (a set of fan blades) behind it spins freely. If buttons or coins get in there they can break off the fan blades and you can't drain water. Check the end of the drain hose if it drains. put it into a bucket or tub basin to observe how strong it pumps. Call Miele if these tips don't work. Be at the machine with Model and Serial number ready.
