Simpson Aquarius washing machine 7kg: water overflowing from the sink on drain and spin cycles. Drainage hose from the washing machine goes straight to the drain under the sink. We have added 3x draino to sink and taken off the U- Tube - no blockage. If you turn the washing machine off during the drain and spin cycle the water (dirty) goes back into the washing machine.

Hi Erin just read your post,I have worked on these machines alot.Now I need you to manually drain the machine of all the water. Once drained i want you to select drain and spin cycle. Now push the start button,do you hear the pump working?If you do stop the machine and select normal cycle on small water level and push the start button.The machine will then fill.Once it stops filling stop the machine and select drain an spin cycle.Does the machine pump out?
