I have a maytag washer that doesn't seem to be draining

I have a maytag washer that doesn't seem to be draining after the rinse cycle. I noticed this after I interrupted the wash by unlocking the washer during it's wash or rinse cycle. My unit does not have a "cancel" button so I can't do the start wash/cancel to force drainage.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: It's at least 15 years old.JA: What are all the symptoms of the problem (error codes, flashing lights, etc.)?Customer: Model number is *****JA: What happened just before this problem started? What troubleshooting have you tried?Customer: I had to force stop the dishwasher as I had an issue with the waste disposal [it fell from the bracket and the rinse water from the dishwasher was gushing out]. As there is no cancel button on my unit, I opened the latch to stop the unit in the midst of the rinse cycle.JA: Anything else you want the appliance expert to know before I connect you?Customer: I haven't been able to reset the washer nor have unplugged/plugged the unit.

We have a food waste disposer "InSinkerator" Model 17-86. It used to work perfectly, however, somebody to whom we lended our house put something it it that totally jammed it. At first it would not let the water through so I took a lot of food (like fruit and nuts and pits) out of it; now the water flows but the machine still makes a stuck sound when we start it and does not goes on grinding.I reseted it using the underneath button.I doubt something is till stuck that prevents the machine from starting correctly, but I have no idea how I can fix this.Thanks!

I have a Homark waste disposal unit which must be about twenty

I have a Homark waste disposal unit which must be about twenty years old. It works perfectly except that sometimes, if I accidentally put in too much or too tough i.e. artichoke leaves, it back up and takes several goes to clear. I think it might need a service but where do I get a service engineer and roughly how much should a callout charge be? I live in central Croydon, Liz Malarkey

So when I moved to a new house, I bought a new 777ss from the web again.But I suffered a stupid problem when I try to install it: the sink drain is too big than the sink flange of 777ss!I want to know if there is any suitable adapter or bigger sink flange for 777ss? Or I must to drill a new drain hole on the sink?Thanks.
