Hiya,
Has the machine stopped full or empty of water?

Thanks
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Its still full. Ive tried to re set and re start a few times but it keeps getting stuck at the drainage stage.

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, you need to manually remove the water from the machine.

Lower the drain hose to the floor, with the end in a bucket, and drain the water out.

Take the plastic cover below the front panel off.
Is there a screw cap there?

Thanks
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Phew!! ok doing that now... there is a black plastic screw on the right hand side.

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
Once the water is out of the machine, unscrew the filter cap and take the filter out.
Remove any debris in there.
Take the laundry out of the machine.
Put the drain hose back in place, put the machine on spin only.
Look into the open filter housing.
Is the X shaped item spinning?

Thanks
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi - all done.


 


The white plastic x is not spinning Cry


 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Done it!!! dug deeper and found a lace.


 


It is making a funny noise mind.


 


It is now spinning but doesnt sound too healthy....

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
OK, you need to try it with the filter back in and some water in it.

It should sound a bit better with water in it.

Let me know what you find.
Thanks
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Bingo!! All sorted.


 


Many thanks for your help.Laughing
