Customer: Machine starts off on it's cycle gets to spin and starts making this loud noise, all lights on are. The machine is about a quarter full of water - so it won't drain out the water then can not spin, makes continuous noise, I have turned machine off and on again progressed to the spin cycle still nothing is happening
JA: Is there anything else the Appliance Technician should be aware of?

HiHave you checked the filter at the bottom of the washing machine as this is usually the problem it gets blocked up and stops the water draining out.What you need to do is remove the plastic trim on the front at the bottom and behind there you will see the filter. Place a shallow tray under the filter and slacken it so the water can slowly drain out. Once the water is out you can fully remove the filter from there clear out any Debris you can see in there. Look inside the chamber where the filter goes on at the back you will see the pump impeller. Check there is nothing jammed up in their stopping it from turning.Once that is all clear we fit the filter and try the wash machine again on a rinse and spin and hopefully that sorted the fault out.Try that and see how it goes and let me know.Regards
