sounds like the pump has packed in...have you a setting to just extract the water (I have on my Bosch) if so try turning the machine off and back on with it set to that setting...worth a try??

a setting for pump and spin, rinse etc dont think i can just extract the water, i had to let turn a tap at the front to release the water out of the drum after it had filled up, god i hope its not the pump :(

well I've only had one experience of that and it was the pump....whatever try and get an engineer that does not charge a call out charge..hard to find but there are some around who will give a free estimate.

Could be the pump (£££ sorry) , but have you checked there's nothing blocked in the drain pump (which traps buttons etc) & is where water from the drum enters the outflow tube. In my bosch you have to unscrew a plug on the front, but check your servis manual to see where it's located on your machine. This is an owner accessible area, & it happened to my mum - engineer told her to check it before she paid him a call-out & in her case that was the problem.

Good luck, & hope it's just a bit of sock stuck in the pipe or something ;-)

A pump is very inexpensive and very easy to fit.

Two wires, ususally and two hoses plus a bracket (2-3 bolts)

It is at the bottom of the machine just before the exit hose.

They don't often pack up IME they usually get a bra support jammed in the impeller which prevents it from rotating.

Pull off the large inlet hose clip and poke your digit inside the pump to see if it is free.

DO UNPLUG THE MACHINE FIRST!!!

Incidentally, you can often get to it by pulling the machine forward and leaning it backwards against the wall. Put something sturdy under the front to stop it falling forward.

If it is completely disconnected (hose(s) and mains lead, then it is perfectly ok to lay it on it's side to get underneath it. Use a couple of towels to lay it on.

Good luck.

this would be my first choice - this was the cause when our machine did the same thing as yours.
