Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
As you do not say what the make and model is I am having to guess- sorry, no promises!
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 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!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

I have a 2007 golf r32 last weekend the car started and then immediately stopped with immobiliser active reading on the dashboard the battery is fully charged and both keys have new batteries.


Sounds like the tiny transponder in your keys has failed.or dropped.out while your changed /checked batteries. Small glass bead about 2mm diameter and 8mm long. Check where you drooped it ?
Or reset the keys. Driver door open, Key in the ignition, and press.and hold all buttons u.til tiny red light on keys ( pin hole youve probably not noticed before) lights up and flashed to pair after 5seconds press open door. Then close and open again keep driver door open. Repeat with second keys.
Should fix it.

Alarm won't turn off


the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled

Key fob would not open 1995 discovery ,used key in door then alarm went off ,after a few seconds alarm ceased then put key in to start engine and got nothing now cant lock doors with key but red light is...


The red light means the Immobiliser has not been turned off, the deactivator in the key must not be working correctly, visit your local land rover dealer who will be able to make sure the key is paired to the car correctly, otherwise you may need a new key.
