hi kevin, 2 mins b4 cycle finished f 105 has come on again,i tried to pump out the water but it wont pump

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

ive,tried it on a fast spin now and it has pumped out

Hi, OK so it works fine now or just works on fast spin ? If it works only on fast spin then check the drain pump again and let me know if you hear a hum like sound...Thanks
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

not working now f05 is up again,and flashing, no hum sound. tried it on pump out and its humming now

OK, if the filter is already cleaned and the impeller at the back isn't jammed then it is time to buy a new drain pump.
