    washing machine problem

    my washer has just given up the ghost,its 7 yrs old, it fills up with water to get ready to wash then just as the cycle begins the machine just makes a clicking sound and the drum will not go round at all,i then have to drain the water out which it allows me to do,does anybody have any ideas what the problem is thanks

    indeed ashley



    I'm a mechanical genius!!!!!

    I had the exact same problem with mine a couple of weeks ago, got someone out to look at it and it turned out to be the pump that's all. Haven't had the bill yet but it doesn't sound too costly to fix, if it is indeed the same problem.

    this was happening to my machine turned out that i needed to clean filter

    in my filter i had a sock all chewed up, 27p and lots of fluff and yes it smelt bad lol mine was hard to undo but i had not checked it for years i didnt know it was there lol oh used a tool on it to grip it then turned it sorry make sure you have something on floor to mop up water loads poured out of mine even though machine was empty good luck

    i just removed £1.21, LOTS of hair, dog i assume, 4 fingernails (false) 2 buttons, 1 ice pole wrapper from my machine.

    Also tore a ligament in my knee in the process. the joy.
