Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(The filter should be just inside the tube behind the 'thing' you unscrew! You should not need to get behind that area as the drain motor is immediately behind the filter and can be checked for debris- see my guidance notes!)

Here are my complete and general pre-typed (!) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Indicates a fault with the heater or the thermistor (temp. sensor). Both located at the bottom rear of the drum.

Check the brushes in the motor, replace if less than 3 or 4 mm long.
If prob still persists, then the control board is probably faulty.

However

  • If your washer spins but does not pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that is attached to the pump or even into the pump itself. It it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
  • To remove the item from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Using a needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the stuck item through the port.
  • Check your washer for a frozen pulley. Remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely, it's frozen, replace it.
  • If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back after the spin cycle, your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub.
  • Also check for these problems:
  1. If the drain hose reaches more than 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut the excess.
  2. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Hi,

I lost a user manual, then found this site called find my manual. They emailed it to me in about 2 hours and it only cost about £3, which i thought was very reasonable.

Hope this helps.

sounds like the spier that holds the drum in place has failed

Most washing machines have a pump filter to protect the pump from obstructions such as coins. The pump filter should be at the front of the washing machine at the bottom left or right. It should be obvious (a square or round flap) but sometimes the filter is hidden behind the front kickstrip panel. A good washing machine filter should have retractable pipe at the side so that you can drain the water into a bowl. In any event, please go to this link above, this is all explained again, and there is even more direct information you need to know, the list is large.

It has a timer circuit that locks the door with a selenoid. It has a sprig that pulls the safety latch back off of the latch. Either it isn't turning the power off or the spring is broken or too dirty with soap and wont work right. Try pulling the power and see if that works. If not got to take front cover off and check it out.

Just watch under the tray. Slowly pull & see which part is preventing this. there may be a small lever catch . Release it though a screw driver gently. Plastic tend to break if more presure applied.
