Hi, welcome to Just answer

Customer:

How old is it approx ?

JACUSTOMER-k835c9qt- :

2003 from the makers stamp

Customer:

OK, as it fills and then drain but will not start the problem is with the motor that is bad and needs replacement

Customer:

have you already tried cleaning the drain pump ?

JACUSTOMER-k835c9qt- :

no, have not tried that . would that make a difference ?

Customer:

You can pull it out and try to clean the drain pump assembly...if the problem is still there after this is done then the motor has to be replaced, a new one will cost around £155

Customer:

cleaning might help sometimes...however, as it drains fine so it is likely a bad motor..sorry about the bad news

JACUSTOMER-k835c9qt- :

ok ,thanks. the machine did go on a wash cycle ,without me looking at the pump, would the drain pump affect the washing?. I can look at that tomorrow if needed
