Customer Question

My creda excel 1200 w20vw is not spinning or emptying. The door locked & end programme light come on. I have left washer off all night & tried a final spin. To no avail. Any suggestions on how I can retrieve the items in the machine and empty it.

Could the model number be W120VW ?? Secondly if you take out all the washing will it spin any water out or does the water stay in the tub?

Sorry it is a w220vw. I'm visually impaired. I have put the washer on off & managed to drain some of the water by opening the door & putting in the bucket. I then put it on final spin. The drum is turning but it is not spinning or emptying

OK thats OK you have got a blockage somewhere between the washing machine drum and the drain, is this a new installation of your washer or has it been there awhile and are you happy to do some disassembly of the machine if needed?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It has been installed a while. I am unable to disassemble parts myself as I am visually mpaired & will have to get assistance. Will I be able to contact you for fur.ther assistance when I get someone to assist or will I have to repay or get a plumber?

I have emptied the machine . I turned it off for an hour. Opened the door with bucket underneath & then used the Charles Hoover to remove water from it. I have pulled the machine, out in plugged it . I've unscrewed every screw on the back to see if I could check for a blockage but I can't get access to see the inside. I have asked a friend to come & have a look. Tomorrow. I did try a final spin after the water was emptied manually but it still would not spin.
