Bush - Doesn't drain but does when "drain" program selected

Recommended Posts


Have a Bush washing machine that doesn't want to to drain in the process of a selected wash cycle. However...when the dial is turned to the just "drain" option, it will happily do so. 

To me this implies that the filter is clear and drain pump works fine Could it be the PCB? Grateful for your thoughts in advance.

Hello. If it definitely drains OK on drain and spin cycles but not during wash cycles that seems very strange. One possible explanation might be if a different fault is stopping it moving onto the drain cycle. What's it like on a rinse and spin cycle?
