Hi, welcome to Just answer
Have you checked the drain pump assembly as well ? Is everything clean in there ?
yes and the drain hose is clear
OK, unplug the unit & can you pull it out and lay it to around 45 degrees so that there is no water in there...let me know if it comes out, I believe it is the pressure switch causing the drain pump to run continuously and thus, resulting in long cycle
also check the black sump hose and make sure that is clean as well
the bulbous drain pipe from the drum I partially removed but could not see in it, I could feel what seemed like a ball inside it felt clean and I refitted it .during the normal washing cycle the drain pump switches off and on at the appropriate times
OK, I understand however, from what you have described it seems that either there is some leak or water is in there which activates the water level sensor so it continues a long cycle...
if you pull it out and then take the rear off you can clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the hose connecting to the pump assembly..
yes I think you are pointing me in the right direction. its 9 o clock now so 2morrow I will take of the bulbous hose and connecting pipes off and I bet there is some water up the pipe which connects to the pressure sensor, ill make sure that the ball is also working properly in its housing. many thanks for your advice
Great, also make sure that the filter located at the bottom front is completely cleaned....also check for something jamming the pump....you can also test the pump with a multimeter for open circuit however, I believe after everything is cleaned the washer should start working fine

I took the whole drain system off , hose from the drum , pipe from the sensor , water pump also a small reservoir where the outside drain pipe enters the w/m frame,this reservoir has a 1/16 hole which bleeds to the drum via a small pipe , this hole was blocked. I washed clean all the parts, I also suspect that the small dia pipe going up to the pressure sensor switch had got water up it. reassembled it all and it appears to be shutting down o/k at the end of its cycle. thanks for your advice. jack
