Washing machine not draining water

Issue description:

Often the user himself is to blame for the fact that the water does not drain from the washing machine, and the equipment has nothing to do with it. For example, an incorrectly selected program, in which the machine does not drain the water, so as not to crumple the laundry. Before you suspect a breakdown, you should start small and re-read the instructions. If the incorrectly set program has been confirmed, then you should set the desired one and restart the wash cycle. There are frequent cases of kinking of the drain hose - this option is also worth checking out. The hose itself, the siphon or the sewage system may be clogged.

If the above problems are not confirmed, then there is a malfunction in the machine itself. The automatic machine may not drain the water due to:

clogging of the filter installed on the drain - pump failure - breakdown of the programmer, control module, program failure - breakdown of the water level sensor (pressure switch).
