not sure if pump runs as can't see it. M.C. goes through the cleaning cycle, indicator reads "O". E-Nr: SGS45C02
connected a meter across pump terminal, showed closed circuit. I read that as continuity and circuit o.k. E-Nr just taken again. Reads SGS45CO2GB/02
Thanks, but have already done all that earlier. Filters clean, pump can be turned manually. I then ran m/c but still not emptying.
Thanks; will check hose connection. How can I see if pump is running with the washer door closed. As soon as the door is opened the power cuts off. However, will try another programme to see if water drains. Programme takes some time. Will report a.s.a.p. Stand by.
Have selected "normal" programme for a test; running time: 140 mins. The difficulty with this model of hearing if the pump is running, or otherwise gaining access to it, is that access is from the bottom. This means that the m/c must be rotated through 180 deg.to allow any work to be carried out. This, of course, prevents the m/c from being run at the same time..
On the "normal" setting a warning of "check water" has come up at 50 mins. The drain pump is running but the water inside has not been drained.
I think that you have the wrong m/c model in mind. Access to the pump with my m/c is from the bottom and to work on the pump the m/c has to be turned over 180 deg .Last night I ran a "normal" programme which is 170 mins. the m/c stopped with 50 mins. remaining. I can hear pump running and a "check water" signal has come up. I have the impression now that there is blockage between the pump discharge side and the discharge hose. Is this likely and what to do?
O.K. Point taken. Every man to his own last. Metering tank is mt.
pressed start and m/c running. indicator light "check water" extinguished and metering tank drain ports full. R u speaking from the States?
the m/c has stopped after 10 mins, the "check water" light is on again, the drain pp. is running and the level in the two tubes has reached a blue mark which I suppose is the max level. Previously when I started the m/c, it filled and the water levels rose and fell. Everything is now static and the pp. is running. However, there was a little discharge from the outlet hose, now stopped.
yes, have checked drain hose is clear. The 1st and 2nd tubes are full and water level does not move when pp. running. How do I gain access to the chamber cover, please?
Thanks. I'll re-check the pp cover and the drain hose.
Good morning. Have checked the pp cver; is on tight and no sign of leakage. However, this time when I turned theimpeller it rotates jerkily and not smoothly. Disconnected the drain hose from the pp and it is clear, no blockage. The ran the m/c on a rinse programme and the two rear drain ports remained mt. You must be right, I need a new pp which I shall try to buy today. Many thanks for your patience and advice.
o.k. I understand. Is the drain pump the only one in the m/c? Does it perform a dual purpose, i.e. turn the rotating spray arms as well as drain the m/c at the end of the wash programme?
o.k. I can't think of anything else to ask you. I'll fit the new pp. when it arrives. Cheerio, out. Alf Robinson.
