  1. Hello, I’m looking for some advice regarding a 10 year old Miele w524 which has a flashing drain light, I have been through all the posts on here and tried all the things mentioned, the machine has been taken apart by hubby and all pipes and hoses and the white box at the back cleared of a lot of gunk everything is now clear , taken off pump, all clear, still have flashing drain light at the rinse cycle , it worked on the wool cycle but this morning on a easy iron cycle same problem , it’s possible it works only with a light load , we also live in a very hard water area, I have it draining in
  2. Hi, my washing machine is not triggering the spin cycle automatically. When I use Normal or Perm Press to start the machine... the timer moves as normal but when it reaches the spin cycle, it just keeps on agitating until the timer reaches off and stops. When I go back to the machine, the clothes are just sitting in dirty water. At this point, the only way to start the spin/drain cycle is by manually rotating the switch to that position and starting the machine. It then spins/drains like normal. So basically... the spin cycle won't trigger automatically but can be manually trigg
  3. This isn't so much a question as a repair report, hope that's appropriate. I've spent the last couple of days exploring this machine which was making a very rough buzzing noise. Having decided that the problem was the drain pump (smelly water, washing wetter than expected, development of noise) I consulted youtube and various discussions for advice. There are quite a few vids and threads giving detailed instructions but all seemed to be discussing a slightly different model to mine and the disassembly for mine turns out to be much easier than most advice would suggest. If like me you
  4. Hello! I'm in desperate need of some assistance. Many thanks in advance if you take the time to read/respond. I have an LG WM2010CW Washing Machine. It won't drain. With a small load and full of water, I unplugged it for a bit and then plugged it back in. I then ran the Rinse/Spin cycle. There was already water in the basin before I started this operation. The first thing it did was spin intermittently. Then, it fully drained. Then it spun for a while. It then filled back up and with 12min remaining on the display, it stopped. The small light next to high was blinking and the beeper/
  5. Fwx221as1 Frigidage washer: So my mothers washer is making a clicking sound when draining. It's not draining completely, but will drain with additional drain cycles. She also reported a burning smell, but I haven't replicated this. I took it apart, and there was no blockage, and the pump made the noise when it wasn't attached to any hoses and the housing off. I used a multimeter to confirm correct voltage(I'm bad with electric stuff so potentially did that wrong); I checked the pump electrical connection and the wire connected to the washer. I am assuming the pump is failing and wi
  6. I have a LG front load washer (#WM2016CW). I notice that after each wash cycle, a small puddle of water remains inside the tub. The clothes that sit on top are in perfect condition--they are almost dry, but the clothes that sit at the bottom are wet due to the water that has remained in the tub. My machine spins perfectly, makes no weird noises, and drains with full power. I replaced the drain pump thinking that it had gone bad, thus contributing to the water remaining after each cycle. But this didn't do any good--the water still remains. It is important to note that when I do a "rinse/
  7. Hi, I've got a Hoover DYN 9164DPG and today mid cycle it came up with an E03 message. Google says this is a drain problem? I opened the drain filter line and a fair bit of water came out but both the drain line and filter seem to be clear and the pump is turning ok. Even now with the machine fully drained it still won't go on to a spin cycle and the pump keeps running. I took the hose off the pressure switch and that seems clear too. Could the switch itself be broken? Many thanks, Rich.
  8. Hoover Vision HD - VHD 9143 ZD Washing Machine What Happened I put in a big heavy carpet rug that probably shouldnt have gone in, but it fit in so I did. After pulling it out, it was a complete mess and I binned it. I also noticed that it was covered in a lacquer kind of gluey substance that was also present on the inside of the main glass door. I did 2-3 empty full temperature washes hoping it would pass, in the end I scrubbed it off with a sponge because it stayed. Then on the next wash of normal cloths, it seemed fine, but the cloths were covered in this lacquer type gluey stuff.
  9. Hi, I have an intermittent drainage problem with my Candy GO482 2/80 machine which has recently been getting worse to the point where its no longer usable. The machine stops when it gets to the drain part of the cycle and displays the error code for not draining in the allowable time (3 flashes). The problem seems to be worse on colder and shorter washes although it may be my imagination... I've read all the help pages as well as a lot of googling and I've tried the following but still with no luck - any help would be appreciated! 1 - checked all hoses for blockages, all clear - drain it
