Hi George, the pump works fine and I've checked the impeller while the pump is running and it's not slipping or broken. The outlet hose has been removed and flushed through. The only thing that happened immediately before this problem was that the inlet tray was cleaned
Hi George, its a Hotpoint Aqualtis AQxxl 29 pm, about 7 years old, I've not checked the hose from dispenser to drum, I guess this could be the way that the drum gets it 's air replacement?
I'll get on to it tomorrow, thanks for your help.
I've looked at the hose from the dispenser to the drum and it's clear. I put a wash on and stayed with the machine all the way through. The pump works perfectly well on the rinse cycles. All the water is pumped out quickly during the washing process., but still on the final pump out although the pump runs, it doesn't empty the drum, also laying the hose out also doesn't empty the drum. Everything points to a blocked hose, but I've taken the hose off again and it's clear. I'm ready to throw the thing off a cliff!!
Don't worry George, I've found the problem. Old credit card in the inner drum, floating around until the water level drops and it sits just nicely above the hose to the pump. Only taken about 6 hours to sort,
Cheers ***** ***** help and patience,
