Before I start properly, I just want to say that I have trawled the forum looking for a similar issue but although there are lots of 'draining problems' none really match the situation I have.
Here is the problem:
-During a full wash (about 135/145 minutes long) the cycle will stop at about 42 minutes and the Check Water light comes on.
-Opening the door, a pool of water is sitting in the bottom
This is what I have done:
-I have removed the water manually, removed the filters, cleaned them etc
-I have kept the machine switched on but with the door open just nudged the float thing up and the water drains away fine - there are no obstructions to the float (mushroom shaped) thing under the washer arm and the rubber seal thing under it seems ok.
Clearly the pipes are ok, drainage ok, impeller ok, pump ok, but the thing just sits there about 42 minutes left of a wash and cannot drain the water...
I have subsequently filled the bottom up with tubs and tubs of water and tried to get it to drain automatically and it just won't have it...
Any thoughts please, PLEASE!
