My FEW12 won't drain!- Help!!!

My W/M won't drain. It seems stuck. The water level is as it should be just before it's due to drain and other than that it works fine if I try other programs. The program will end but the water is still there. This hasn't happened before. It just hums/buzzes and does nothing. Any aqdvice will be greatly appreciated as my baby needs her clothes!!! Thanks x

Possibly a blockage in the pump or pipes to the pump as small items can sometimes slip between the 2 drums and block the outlet pipe from the outer drum to the pump.

For Miele Dishwasher G2470SCVI Need help with remaining water in the bottom. Model# G2470 SCV1 SF Type-HG03. Runs through the entire cycle,long,short ect..everything is clean and dishes look great but


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable.
Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Drain Hose If the dishwasher won't drain the drain hose might be clogged. Remove the drain hose from both the dishwasher and the sink drain to clean it out. The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher
Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

My hotpoint few12 is emptying through top where you put powder But it is spinging ,Whats wrong with it


I think what was meant is that the water seems to overflow from the top side and so washes off the powder. This can be due to a improper setting or fault on the water level controller unit as it fails to detect and stop the water flows at a lower level.

My Hoover First Edition keeps filling with water to the point of it pouring out of the door. It seems to be draining fine, but just keeps letting in short bursts of water, which don't seem to stop. ...


This seems quite likely to be a fault of the WATER LEVEL SENSOR. So since the pressure activated switch is not working even when the set water level is reached the water overflows.
Drain the water out of the washer and remove the level sensor which is located on the rim of the drum which has a tube feeding water to a pressure activated switch- the diaphragm could have punctured or failed on the switch.
You can bypass the switch by shorting to see if the machine starts and works , if so change the switch.

Found water underneath washer, clothes seem to have more water in them, washer doesn't seem to be draining properly


Can be due to clogging in the drain pump/valve which is not draining off due to the dirt accumulation. remove and clean- back flush to see if this works.
Also make sure that the level of the washer is tilted to the drain side valve as no water must remain but drain in gravity. use a spirit level to set.

My filter!!


First of all,lay the drain hose down to floor level and let the water run into a bucket or similar, this will empty the washer of water.
the filter is inside the large black hose on bottom of drum.
Undo hose, remove and clean filter
Refit filter and hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve your problem.
Good luck.

Few12 will not spin after washing, any ideas


Had the same problem. Removed the kick plate at front and unscrewed filter. In the filter recess I found a cotton wool bud. Appeared to have stopped the blade like fan spinning which appears to push the water into the drain hose. Works perfectly now.

Hotpoint wma12 not draining help please my work clothes are stuck


You need to check the pump filter which is accessed by removing lower rear panel of washer.
On the right you will see a large black hose, ondo securing clip and remove hose, be careful because there will still be water in it.
Better still , lay hose down into a bowl or similar to drain any remaining water in m/c.
Inside you will see the plastic filter, remove and clean, refit filter and hose, make sure you get it on properly
Test it for leaks, and that should be it.
If it still does not drain then you need to check the pump is o/k.
You can do this by listening or feeling if you can hear the pump going.
BE CAREFUL

Any more info , let me know.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

The 3 buttons


button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!

As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.

Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.

Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Copied from my Hotpoint FEW12 user instruction sheet.
Hope it helps.
