    Washing machine not draining

    Had this problem a few months ago when first moved in, it gets to the drain and spin part then just doesnt start them up, I managed to get door open and got rid of almost all the water in drum and also squeeze water out of some clothes and still nothing, I then tried leaving it 30 minutes and it spun for like 10 seconds and stopped.

    Last time this happened I pulled out machine from wall and loosened pipes and checked under sink but dont know what may be wrong.

    I was going to but cant get the 2 screws at front off plus when I used to do that it flooded the kitchen when I had problems in past and its not the best thing to do at this time of night!

    EDIT : Opened filter and load of water came out as expected, took about 10 minutes to mop up and now its spinning but machine is making a humming/rattling sound, wonder if drum is unbalanced.

    Get it insured with domestic and genral £7 a month they come out n fix it, its worth it mate.... my moter went fixed it with in 3-4 days, put new 1 in buzzing....

    Cleaning the filter flooded the kitchen? I know some water comes out and it can be a quite a bit, but enough to cause a flood?

    If that's true, just buy a new washing machine. That one sounds ruined.

    Ours had a similar issue a while back - paid a man £25 to come and repair it - no problems since. If you're not confident doing it yourself, just get someone you trust to do the job well or who has good references.

    Well its in a rented flat but its not on the inventory for the very reason LL said they were getting stolen when people moving out or expensive repair costs so was told any repairs I had to do myself(but at same time its basically mine)

    Can you hear the pump running when it's meant to be pumping out?

    That sounds a bit dodgy. The landlord is meant to be liable for repairs to things he owns, and they should be on the inventory. If its on the inventory and someone steals it, it comes out of their deposit.

    Unless he's given it to you and wouldn't complain if you took it when you leave, I wouldn't put any of your own money into repairing it. Otherwise you're just repairing his machine for the next tenant. Also what if you or someone else repairs it, and it later floods the place out. Would you then be liable for any damage as it was you that did the repair?

    YEs this definitely! What a chancer your landlord is. Phone them first and see if they'll repair it. If they say no again, say "so if I do, I get to take the machine with me when i leave?" and see how they respond.

    If the machines faulty they would probably be grateful for you to take it!

    usual cause is bra underwires coming adrift and getting caught in the pump impeller,depending how diy savvy you are can be a kwik fix just a clip on a hose at bottom rear of machine.

    Mine did this and it was the pipe at the back was nipped so was not draining properly and not at all sometimes. That's if you have had the washer out make sure the drain out pipe is free and able to do so.

    Sounds same problem we had few weeks back the brushes were worn down we bought them from espares and now works fine.

    could be simply a sock or similar stuck in the drain out.
