yes, just the same. It didn't appear to be badly clogged.
Yes, I can do that. I asume that access is through the bottom of the machine?
1. Remove the 3 screws at the rear of the base.2. Protect the flooring and disconnect the machine from the plumbing, if required.3. Carefully lay the machine on its back.There may be a small spillage of water.4. Remove the 3 screws from the front edge of the base tray.5. Carefully pull away the front of the tray allowing access to remove the wiring from the float microswitch.6. Remove the tray7. Remove the drain hose from the drain pump.8. Remove the screw from the front of the pump, securing the pump body to the sump.9. Disconnect the wiring connections.10. Twist the pump body in an anti-clockwise direction to release the 3 fixing lugs, being careful notto lose the 'O' ring seal.NOTE: - When refitting, be careful when fitting the 'O' ring seal and also that all 3 lugs are located in the sump moulding before twisting in place.
Let me know how you get on..
Thanks George. I've now done all that. The pump was more or less empty, nothing significant. The impeller turns easily (with some "cogging" so it isn't just turning on the shaft). Motor windings look ok as far as I can see, with no burning signs or melted plastic. I've not tried to run it independently (I don't think I could get a safe enough connection onto the lugs), but did try the machine again after - still the same. :(
204 ohms (this is UK 230v 50Hz)
The indication is the same. Just light 2, not flashing.
I think that might have fixed it as there were definite signs of life. :) I'll finish putting it back together. Would it be an idea to try the rinse cycle as that's only short?
That seems to have done it. The water emptied as expected. :)
