Is there water still in the appliance?
What do you mean? I have not asked you to make a call
If there is still water in the appliance the door will not open..
Unhook the drain hose from its drainage point and hold it over a bowl to drain out the water.. Then once the water is out, open the filter housing to check that it is not blocked..
Let me know what you find..
Out of interest, why did you mention not wanting to make a call?
Ok.. I will ask what that means... Even I'm not sure on that one..
Let me know how you get on...
What model is the appliance?
Ok, so Hotpoint WF250..
yes, Unhook the drain hose from its drainage point under the sink (or wherever) and hold it over a bowl to drain out the water.. Then once the water is out, open the filter housing to check that it is not blocked.. The filter housing is behind the kick-panel at the front of the machine
Ok.. Check to make sure the impeller of the pump will turn... If you now put the appliance on a Spin program, does it spin?
I'm not going anywhere.. take your time
Ok.. The drum is spinning yes?
Is the impeller of the pump rotating?
Just checking that model as there are two types
When you run this and it does not pump out... are there any lights on at the front panel?
The pump on the WF250 is at the rear
1. Remove the lower rear access panel.2. Detach the sump hose from the pump using a suitable container to catch any water.3. Disconnect the drain hose from the pump and unplug the wiring connection block.4. Lift plastic the locking tab and slide the pump inwards and lift clear.
Check the pump is not blocked..
Check that it is operating.
If you numbered the 5 buttons 12345 from the top to the bottom.. Which buttons were flashing?
Did you check the pump?
Also, at the base of the tub, and attached to the pump, is the sump to pump hose.. The hose end that is attached to the tub contains a filter.. undo it and check the filter basket.
The lights that you have reported as flashing are not registered as a fault code.
Pressure switch jammed on full or pumpblocked: check pump & switch
Check the pump again and then check that the hose for the pressure switch is not blocked
Take off the lid.. On the right side there is a pressure switch with a thin hose coming from it. Take the hose off, then blow down the hose towards the tank to ensure the hose is clear, then try the appliance again.
Do you have a multimeter?
Then you are unfortunately going to need to call for the services of an appliance engineer to test the pump and the pressure switch for you..
Essentially, one or the other of those two have a fault; however we can not determine which of the two without the tests having taken place.
Would you like me to find you an appliance engineer local to you? (If so, please supply your postcode)
