QHow do I replace a motor pump in my washing machine2 Answers
I have a Tecnik washing machine model no TKL9060 which due to a short curcuit is now not working properly. An engineer said that it would be too costly to repair as it was a problem with the motor but if I replaced the motor pump would that solve the problem I wonder as all the programmes seem to be there on the control panel but it just makes a low whirring sound with no movement

OK,when an engineer talks about a motor he means the main motor NOT the pump.Main motors tend to be very expensive to replace.Replacing the pump will make no difference.
QHow do I remove a bottom filter from a Belling SGE 12 X.1 Answer
I have tried to remove the bottom filter from my washing machine as I want to clean it. I have given it a quarter turn left which has allowed the machine to drain and thought that I would be able to draw the filter out but no luck. I dont want to force it as this would probably wreck the thing. Any ideas ? Many thanks

Sounds like the filter on my Indesit. Make sure you get a spare from Espares first, as the problem may be a foreign body stuck between the filter and inlet hose. Use a pair of pliers and firmly work the filter clockwise and anticlockwise. With luck it will slowly yield anticlockwise and you can draw it out, beward some water will follow it !. Check for objects in the filter housing and actually at the pump impellor at the back, buttons, small coins or eve bits of wicker laundry basket, a avourite in ours. If you have the spare ready, then a broken filter is'nt a delay.

I fitted one myself recently and it does go stiff due to the magnet fitted.
