Question about Smeg WM16AAA Front Load Washer

1 Answer


We have a Smeg WM16AAA TYPE 02046 nR 00342 01 03 WASHING MACHINE.
On last use, half way throught the cycle it stopped working. There is power to the unit, its not a blown fuse. The drum is free to spin, nothing has fallen off, the door interlock is not faulty. The timer is working machanically and completes the program cycle. In short it will not run/start.
Any help appreciated.
Kind regards.

Try turning power off, unscrewing the back panel of the machine and removing, reaching inside and giving the wheel which looks like a waterwheel (has 'fans') a couple of turns. This is the pump and sometimes small particles jam the wheel. Turn the power back on and if still in mid-cycle should resume and finish.

Hi my washing machine is only going throught half it's cycle 7 not pumping out water

It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Cleaning a pump:

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

Light coloured washing gets dark stains during washing, particularly towels. We have tried cleaning using specialist washing machine cleaners, we have put it through the hottest cycle. Any ideas?

I had a similar problem. In my case it was because I always used a low temperature '30' wash. There was a build up of gunge in the folds of the rubber door seal. I wiped this off and then put towels through on a high temperature wash which cured the problem. I repeat the high temperature wash occasionally and the problem has not reappeared. Hope the answer is a simple as this.

stick some neoprene-type patches on the inside of the body either side of the drum- you'll see where from the wear marks. Use super-glue to ensure lasting satisfaction.

This happened to us before and we had to actually reset the unit. I had to call the tech support and they walked me through the process.
