20 Most Recent Tecnik TKL9260 Front Load Washer Questions & Answers


This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump 
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. 

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. 

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.

  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Be forewarned, your washer has a LOT of discontinued parts.

Good luck!

Your washing machine only has one belt. The reason for the two different part numbers is that the original part (1192J5) is no longer manufactured/available. 1185J5E is the replacement part number which is fully compatible with your machine. An appliance spares supplier should have been able to tell you this.

You can order using either part number - some suppliers will have the part listed under both numbers, others may still have stock of the original 1192J5 part.

I generally use UK Whitegoods for appliance spare parts as their prices are good, they deliver quickly and if you need any advice on ordering the correct part, you will get the right information:

My washer fills up with water and goes thru the wash cycle but when it's time to drain, it just sits there and clicks.

Possible that the dispenser drawer is out of alignment or is the suspect. You can remove and check the mountings
click on : Dispenser

Possible that the controller unit or the water level sensor is faulty. Switch on and check the inlet valve to load water into the drum. check if the water is stopped when the set level is reached or else it can be fault on the level sensor.

Generally I would think this would be caused by static electricity buildup. It happens to most electronics more then people realize. To discharge the static I usually just unplug the washer for a few minutes to an hour and when I plug it in it usually is fixed. Only one time did I have a code on my washer and there was actually a problem. I hope this helps
