Hi there, Reaching out to the forums as I've put alot of work into fixing my washine machine but it is still not working. I don't want to be beaten yet so perhaps someone can help? This machine was new in May 2011. Last year the door lock burnt out the connecting cables so I replaced the lock and cables sucessfully. Eariler this year it started not draining and flashing all lights. It turned out to be a very blocked sink u-bend and after a good clean things were good again. (lesson learned about keeping that clean! However in the last month or so it keeps stopping at the first drain (between the wash and rinse). All lights flashing and the drain light on. I've tried loads but no improvement I have checked: * Pump filter at front of the machine, cleaned out. * Sump hose checked, removed 2p coin, cleaned. *Cleaned the detergent drawer and the jets with those little teeth flossing sticks... *Checked the motherboard at the bottom of the machine for enlarged transistor - everything fine transistor wise but there seems to be a bit of blackening on the board. Nothing seems damaged. *Loads of crud came out of the waste hose when manually draining so i've cleaned that out well *Checked the drain pump resistance with a multimeter (my own outlay at the moment, £15) and it checked out fine at 220. So wither it be a hot wash or a colder one, it stops when it first starts to drain, all lights flashing and only the drain light on, green. The machine will spin cycle fine, but not drain. When it tries to drain there is a clicking sound initally then a kind of hum from around the drain pump. Is it possible the drain pump has failed even though it checks out on the multimeter? Any help you can give will be really appreciated. I really would like to solve this myself - which of course some help. Kind Regards Simon
