Question about Washing Machines
I would take the back off and look for a small 5mm pipe leading upwards from the base of the drum and take it off and blow gently into it you should hear a click and one when you release the air if so then the place where you took the pipe from is blocked clean it out with a pipe cleaner or metal rod and replace the pipe as sometimes this pipe gets blocked with soap goo preventing the water sensor from doing its job eric

Hi Paul, Assuming it is pumping out ok, Unplug the machine tip it back at an angle, underneath you will see a black hose that is attached to the bottom of the drum, remove this, take out the ball and discard it and remove anything that may be in the filter, replace the hose and try the machine.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter
is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind.
Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too
deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Solved the unbalanced problem - open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches). Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you. Now, look around - see all that rust? The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles. Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod. Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it. Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball. Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around. Now, shake your head in disgust that after only 2 years there is so much rust that you wonder if it will make it another year before falling apart, close the lid, and try another load. That totally solved my off-balance problem where even a single handkerchief would give the UL error. It is still a finicky machine, but at least once again works like it did when new.

i have just had this problem and as in the other solution he is correct. once you have the motor in your hand the brushes can be changed simply by removing the spade connection then slide the brass locator along and this will disengage the brush and release the spring which holds it in place. make sure you note which way the diagonal part of the brush is facing and be sure that you replace facing the same way the brushes only cost me £15 for the pair
