Washing powder should go in the right hand side compartment, if it is not going down, then check that water is coming into washer.
Conditioner should go in the smallest of the compartments.
Please rate my solution.

This ball is a non return device to stop the dirty water in the sump of the machine from mixing with the clean water of the rest of the wash.It should be a tight fit into the rubber lip inside the Sump hose.The ball now stuck in the drum may already be damaged if it stopped the drum and snapped the belt.The best thing to do if you suspect the ball is damaged is to cut it out and if you can get a replacement from your supplier all the good.If not the machine can run without it until you get a new one.
Hope this helped.

Testimonial: "I did manage to get hold of a tech at defy who suggested the same but also suggested the ball had little or no use and at the same time mentioned it contributed to the majority of faults in the machines that were sent in for repair. thank you for your help. I will definately use this service again."

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump 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 complete and general 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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
