Found 2nd May 2009
Bloody thing.

Just did 2 loads of washing and everytime I open after the wash, the drum has a fair bit of water left in, the clothes are just soaked.

Any idea what the problem could be please?

Will leave rep

If anyone feels the need to be sarcastic and want a response, I wont rise to it, really not in the mood.

Have 2 small children to wash for and although you may find it funny to joke about, its not good!!

At the bottom of the machine should be some form of filter, that must be blocked. Ours was the same last week till i cleared it out. Works fine now. Give it a go..http://smallrepairs.50

awww hon, it's not draining properly.. there might be a child's sock or something small caught in the drain pipe near the base of the machine...

we're probably thinking of the same place.. look for a little flap near the base of the machine.. you should be able to open it and clean out all the gunk ( it will be yukky ) and to pull out any tiny pieces of clothing....

If you can't see the flap at the front of the machine, it could be at the rear. You will have to take the back of the machine and if it's anything like my old Hoover washer/dryer it will be in the bottom left hand corner. Go knows why they put it there but if you can't find it on the front that's probably be where you may find it.

thats exactly what i do hon lol

i tell him i only married him cos he has long fingers *cough*

I had a similar problem a little while back, after checking the filter bit I found the problem was in the pipe itself, coming from under the sink, it was blocked at that end with gunk... ewwww..

So if the filter is clear, check through the length of the pipes. A wire hanger will be handy!

Thanks all will let you know how he gets on, I am no way attempting it lol

It's very simple to do,also make sure you put something on the floor as sometimes a bit of water comes out.

this happened to my washing machine mine was the filter at the bottom of machine mine had money (1p and a couple of 5p), a sock and lots of fluff
