hi Michael, the pump seems to run for 10 mins or longer and does not advance. I will try it again tonight and time it. The machine does not have an old fashion time clock that clicks around that you can see where the position is. Its like digital, you set the type of wash and temp and press start.
hi, just put the machine on to do a wash, it started and done the first part of the wash taking in the power etc, it went to drain so the pump started and the water emptied. the pump has now been going for 1 hour and has not gone passed this stage.. It then shut down after about 1 hour and 20 min. when i looked at the control panel the start/pause button was flashing and the extra rinse light was on along with 40 deg. I checked the user manual and it said problem with drainage.
just checked the filter and it was clean, pulled the pump out to see if any thing had got trapped, no.
took the outlet pipe off the machine and pasted water through it and its not blocked.
i put a bucket full off water in the drum and had the outlet pipe over the sink and it drained and still did not go any further. (checking to make sure my house drain was not blocked).
I also tried the machine on a spin only cycle. the pump ran then stopped after a short while. paused then pump ran again then stopped again. started again after a while then stopped, and then the waning lights came up as before on the front panel. hope this helps?
