Hi, thank you for contacting Justanswer. I would like to try to help you. I am an expert from Germany. Work with language translators. Please understand. I am always online from 18 - 23 o'clock. I'm afraid I can't use the phone. If you want to call an expert please tell me.

Please clean the bottom of the pump first. It must not be blocked. The impeller at the bottom of the pump must be rotatable with your finger.#

Then only start and test the Spin program.

I wait for the feedback.

Best regards, Erdal

Thank you. It did complete a final spin programme this morning on the clothes that had been stuck inside but now I've attempted another load this morning its not working again. I will see if I can work out how to clean the pump.

There's a stakeout downstairs opening up. Then they see a round lid rotating. There is the pump. Caution water can come out.

Ive tried that it was very clogged up even been out and bought a new filter as it broke when I removed it for cleaning. Thought that would have fixed it seeing what was in there but I've switched it on and the door is locking I hear it click but the door locked light isn't switching on & the cycle isn't starting.
Do you have anything else I can try? Many thanks!

Door locked light now flashing

Okay, the plane starts?

Okay, the washing machine starts?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No its not starting, the wash light comes on as if its about to start, there is a clicking noise which is the door locking but the door locked light isn't on and nothing happens.
Then after a few minutes the door locked light is blinking but the cycle isn't starting.

Okay, check the bottom of the washing machine. Has water escaped??? If so, the Aquastop is switched...

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
no water I've had the whole machine pulled out the only water is the water I let out when changing and cleaning the pump

Okay, then there's a fault in the pump. If the door lock reacts then the pump must be running. I don't think the pump is running, so it won't start.
