Draining a NEFF Washing Machine
July 2, 2011
Posted by on
The NEFF Washing Machine gets halfway through a cycle then starts rapid beeps. The two lights (“rinsing” and “spin”) are orange or flashing orange.
Time to drain out the machine before putting on a pump cycle and trying again.
First you need a bucket.
You Need a Bucket
Next, pull out the black tube from the bottom of the front of the washing machine.
Grab The Black Tube
Position the tube inside the bucket, because after the next step water will flow out of the tube…
Position The Tube Inside The Bucket
Pull out the white bung from the end of the tube, but make sure the tube is positioned inside the bucket, because water will begin to flow out immediately.
Pull Out The White Bung
Let the water flow out into the bucket. If your bucket fills up then re-insert the bung, pour out your bucket into the sink/bath/toilet, and repeat until no more water flows out of the black tube. You may observe bits of gunk coming out in the water, or perhaps very soapy or smelly water. That could be why the machine wasn’t draining in the first place.
Let The Drain Water Flow
Re-insert the white bung firmly once you have finished and put the tube back under the washing machine where you found it.
Now, select the “pump” cycle from the washing machine, and press the “start” button to let the machine finish the drain normally.
Select the Pump Cycle
After that, if you hear three long beeps, everything is okay and you can try doing a normal cycle (or a rinse – option 4).
