Does not empty at end of wash cycle (not blocked or pump)

Machine goes through wash cycle normally but then it does not empty at the end of the wash cycle and three lights come on, wash, rinse & spin & final spin (ignoring door locked light obviously). It does rinse and spin if put on this program manually so is not blocked or dead pump). Any ideas please?

check that the outflow pipe is not blocked. Turn off power supply get a bucket ready, disconnect the outflow pipe from the u-bend under the sink and check that it is not blocked.

SOURCE: the water wont drain from my machine from the wash

What you need to do is check the pump is getting a feed to it
Select a spin cycle, and with a test meter, test for voltage across the pump terminals, if you are getting a feed, and the pump is working ok, then you obviously have a blockage beyond the pump.
If no voltage then could be a broken wire, or a faulty programmer/board.
Hope this helps.

Hi there Washing Machine model: WFA0877A My wash cycle was abruptly ended and all three indicator lights are switched on. How do I resolve this?

send your email get the user manual
all three lights on is blocked up drain
the pump not rotating {check for wires and coins}

i would empty the machine fully at the drain cycle and also at the pump filter
till its all empty
switch off and remove the water pipes and the mains plug
then pull out and lay the machine over on the side
opposite the soap drawer

then underneath you will see the pipe that goes from the drum
to the pump
take it off both ends and check its totally clear and any trap {a ball and also sometimes in a cage}
shine a light inside the drums and look around for socks or tights or plastic etc {have kids check for lego plastic toys etc etc }
clothing wires in the pump end

and check the drain
make sure the drain at the waste end is clean and flows well at the sink etc...

put it all back together
and try to hold in the program select or start stop button for a few seconds when you apply mains

then this resets the fault it detected

it should work aok
if not what part of the cycle did or does it stop at???
this will give more info that the three stuck lights

i can see the manual online for it
perhaps it has some details

Washing machine wont complete drainage at end of wash cycle

Look under the washer tub where the drain hose comes out and attaches to the pump. Your pump impeller is either clogged or worn out. Try removing the pump and checking from there.

Washing machine will not empty water on spin cycle?

Usually the pump goes bad on a washer first. I would check the drain hose and make sure it is all clear before you replace the pump. But I would be 95% sure its the pump. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Zanussi 1400 Front Loader: Machine washs clothes as per normal but does not drain the water and cannot go into the spin cycle. Sits there doing nothing then starts bleeping.

This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.

You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (You haven

My washing machine spins at end of its cycle, however, the clothes are still soaking wet. Will it be that the pump has gone as I've emptied the filter

Hotpoint WT640 - it's flashing f-05. I emptied the machine and put on another wash and it says the same thing halfway through the cycle?


F-05 normally relates to the pressure switch,which normally points to a blockage.Does the machine empty slowly if so I would check the drain pipe first and if that is ok then you need to look down at the drain pump which may have a blockage in the filter which is inside the sump pipe,this is the main hose from the base of the drum and goes to the pump.
Hope this helps.

Beko washing machine wont drain or spin water stays in drum

the pump itself could be blocked or broken check inside pump first for any obstructions

Fills washes rinses but wont spin properly or empty out washer, ends cycle half done, wont pump water out or spin out. i can hear the machine hum while trying to do so. Please any ideas. THanks

its likely the pump is blocked (hence the humming) with a coin or some foreign object. To check, lower the outlet hose to ground level to allow the water to empty. Tip machine back & lean against a wall, remove the pump & remove object if there is one! Reassemble & try machine again
