Washing machine is backing up ...

+2 votes

Went to put a wash in and found knuckle-deep cold water in the machine.  That presumably means there is a blockage somewhere, but how on earth do I get at the washing machine drain to put drain unblocker into it? 

Never open doors if you don't dare to walk on through ...

There is usually a drainage compartment on the front of the washing machine. Try that, it collects stuff that can eventually stop water getting out. The first thing to try as you don't have easy access to the drain is doing a cycle that uses the hottest setting which is normally 90. That may do the job. To get at the drain one normally has to just pull the washing machine out by hand. Have a bucket or something to catch water as it could get messy.

That thing you did. Do it again.

Why don't you just buy a brand new functional and working washing machine if your current one is faulty?

That can save you a lot of hassle and inconvenience!


Just do it - Nike.
