  2. My LG WM1832CW washer is probably already over 10 years old. But I have been having a persistent problem for years. I cannot use the Delicates or Hand wash cycles, as whenever I do, water floods out from the bottom of the washer . I think this is coming from the center front underneath part of the machine, somewhere to the right of the drain filter on the left side of the machine. But water pours out during the wash cycle as well as the rinse and drain cycles. This doesn't happen wihen I wash clothes with the other cycles - normal heavy, extra time, etc. - just with delicates and handwash cycles. Any help would be appreciated!

  4. Thank you I will have a look. It only seems to do it on the first load after the machine has been sitting unused for a few days.....there after it seems to work okay.
  5. It sounds like there is a partial blockage somewhere so the water isn’t being pumped out properly. Try this article to see if you can find it https://www.whitegoodshelp.co.uk/cant-find-blockage-but-washing-machine-still-not-draining/
  6. Bosch Classixx 6 machine making banging noises but only on spin cycle at certain speeds. see video at: https://youtu.be/nBp3AMa9pkk I would like to know if anyone thinks it's the bearings, or something else.
  7. Anyone know how I can get into the diagnostic mode on Beko WME7267w? Thanks
  8. I have a 8.5 year old Beko that has started leaking soapy water back up through the soap drawer when spinning. I have changed the pump and the level sensor but it still happens. It also occasionally jumps back to an earlier point in a cycle. Any advice? Thanks

  11. We have just encountered exactly the same problem with a Samsung washing machine purchased in 2015, the only difference being is that we bought the machine directly from Currys with the so-called 5 year parts and labour warranty. Following many phone calls to Samsung agents reading from the same script we were fobbed off with "Do you have proof of the registration of the warranty" despite giving them the reference number and emailing them all the sale documents including receipt. We then went to the Currys store in Belmont Durham that we bought the machine from and waited in a long line of customers complaining about their warranties not being honoured. We gave all the documents to the staff person dealing with complaints and he said they would be in touch within 72 hours. On the final day we received a letter claiming that our machine was out of warranty but Currys were offering a £144.99 voucher to spend on a new washing machine in full and final settlement as it was uneconomical to repair. When we rang the number to speak to the senders of the letter it was explained that the only route they could offer was the "Out of warranty route" which was a voucher towards the purchase a new one. When I stated that we bought a 5 year parts and labour warranty and wanted it repaired they explained that Currys only cover the first 2 years then the next 3 are supposed to be covered by Samsung. This is a blatant case of mis-selling as none of this was explained at the point of sale and we only bought it because we thought we had 5 years cover. When we explained that the voucher was no good as we would never buy another thing from Currys they offered a direct payment by BACS into our account within a further 72 hours if we accepted it as full and final settlement. So to summarise there are 2 lessons learned here - 1. Currys mis-sell their products with impunity and are not to be trusted so don't buy anything from them and 2. Samsung provide products which do not last as long as advertised and do not honour any "warranties" that they allegedly provide and furthermore have pre-prepared scripts for agents to fend off long and many calls from people who have bought these warranties in good faith so don't buy Samsung products period. We have learned a costly lesson but like the person above hopefully our bad experience will help other consumers to make the right choice when shopping both in terms of who to buy from and which brands not to touch with a barge pole.

  12. Does it click once or twice when blown into? If it's once (once up and then once when pressure released) then there should normally be a live feed, then power passes between two contacts depending on if the switch is activated or not. So I'd expect continuity between 2 pins which switches to a different connector when the pressure switch is activated.
  13. Door switch fixed the problem.
  14. Sorry I just re-read your question. I didn't pick up on the timer counting down being a previous fault not this one. Yes the door lock is a common cause of a washing machine not working at all, but there are many others. Let us know if the new door lock fixes the fault. If not check my help article out Washing Machine Won’t Start
  15. Hi All! I can't find any relevant help, for this question, in any of the available recources on the site. They have been very useful up to this point though. I now have replacement components on order for my failed control board due to their help. I am thouroughly checking all parts on my Hoover Visiontech 6KG while waiting for them to turn up. All check out apart from the pressure switch - 41035075 70/50 -340, analogue, single click, doesn't seem to make sense when I get a meter on it. From left to right the terminals are 16, 11, 14, 12, but only three 16, 11, 14 are connected to PCB. I get open circuit between any combination of the 16, 11, 14 (first three) terminals when the diaphragm is not under pressure. When the diaphragm is under pressure only terminals 11 and 14 go closed. I don't see why three wires are used this being the case, provided this sensor is working correctly. Please can someone help? I am going loopy from searching for diagrams or pinout descriptions for this common component. I will send holistic good thoughts to anyone who can resolve this . I am so skint at the moment that I can't buy a pressure switch to compare/replace in case it isn't faulty. I would kick myself If the replacement behaved the same. Keep up the good work! Mick
  16. Think I have found the problem, the door switch is not being made, got a new one on order.
  17. Hello. If the timer is counting down isn't that a delayed start feature?
  18. I have been a happy user of this system except everything comes out wrinkled. Mostly cottons. Linens are a disaster. I am ironing more than i ever wanted. I have dried the garment and put it in the steamer but this is a 2 step process and doesn't always work. Miele says to set the washer drum on a slower setting, but then the clothes come out too wet and takes forever to dry. I thought about taking the wet garment from straight from the washer and and put it on the steamer setting. Does anyone have any solutions for wrinkle free clothing? thanks, Karen
  19. What usually happens in the machine calls for water, then it drains and it starts. but it’s not getting to this stage.
  20. Hi Chaps, Am new to the forum, I was wondering if you could give me some points on why my Beko WMB61431s won’t start. The display shows the time but does not start, I had a similar problem with the timer counting down and I replaced the bushes and this solved the problem. I have again replaced the bushes, but this time the problem still remains. Hope you can help. Regards David
  21. Hi, I've never had a washing machine before and I'm about to get a new one delivered and I just have one question that no one on the internet seems to be answering....I understand that I must connect the water pipe inlet connection to the tap and then turn the tap to the 'On' position, but when my washing machine is turned off and the washing machine stops water from entering, where does all that water go from the tap that is still in 'On' position? ( I know some people turn it off preventing leaks but I'm asking what stops that flow of water from the tap in 'On' position in the first instance - how does it work? What stops usage of water when the washing machine is off but tap is On, because when I turn the unconnected tap on, the water comes gushing out ? Where does all that gushing out water go, how does it stop my water bill from being astronomical? Does the washing machine somehow create pressure to send the water back up to Thames Water when the washing machine is off or how does it work? )

  23. Hello, I have brought a new washing machine for my new build house. I have installed it but it's not draining. I believe I have located the problem to the connection under my sink. The pump works because when I push the black piece that's inside the waste pipe in when it's draining water squirts out it's just not doing it on the connection I can't hear anything. Do any of you know how to resolve this ? Many thanks in advance
  24. Hi, I am having issues with my newly purchased ashing machine. 1 - The detergent draw always has leftover detergent no matter how little i put in. The machine just wets it and makes it clumpy. It also does not take the fabric conditioner 2 - Every programme I use will not move onto rinse / spin + drain automatically. The light for rinse just flashes until i press start, then it will rinse. For spin and drain I have to turn the machine off and then set it to rinse and drain. This is the intergrated unit, hopefully someone has experienced similar issues with a beko washer and can help.... Thanks
  25. If there is a restriction in the fan chamber such as build up of fluff it would hinder the airflow and could cause overheating. Check all the way through into the condenser chamber for blockages.
