Had the engineer out a few weeks ago for this problem and he removed one of the blue bars from inside the drum and removed what was blocking it ( a doggy poo bag!!!!) got a feeling this might have happened again, anyone know how i remove these bars myself so i can avoid another £90 call out!!! there doesnt seem to be any obvious way but he must have done it some how
Any suggestions please
Many thanks in anticipation
Fantastic. I also had had the washer a couple of years ago when it started leaking everywhere. I removed the blue paddles by sliding and lifting. This let me see the drainage pipe at the middle in the back. With the help of a torch - lo and behold - there was one of my partners g-strings blocking the outlet (!).

Depends on which clip is fitted, if it's the metal type with loops on the ends then you squeeze the 2 together with pliers or mole grips but if it's the plastic type they are like teeth inside and you have to push the middle section outfrom the outer in opposite directions. Can be done with a flat blade screwdriver but be careful of you fingers.
There is no adjustment provided for tensioning belt as it is a stretch belt.
Best way to do it is to remove the rear panel, tilt the weaher forwards, get someone to hold it for you.
Put belt round motor pulley first, then slowiy feed it round the drum pulley, turning the drum pulley at the same time, it will be very tight, so watch your fingers, just keep going until belt is on, if it comes off, just start over
You can line it up properly in the motor pulley grooves once you have got the belt on.
Please rate my solution.
If you cannot here it catching, then leave well alone, if it is still catching, then you could to try to locate it by removing the lower rear cover of washer, remove the large black hose on bottom of drum, and see if you can locate it from the bottom of the drum.
Hope this helps.
You nead to check the filter.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose on bottom of drum
Remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Hope this helps.
if the drum is tight to turn ,then the main bearings have probably seized, or their could be something fast in the drum. Remove belt, and try to turn the drum by hand , it shuold be free with no resitance.
If it is noisy or feels rough, then the bearings have gone.
