Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is no pump for pumping water into a washer; filling is done by the pressure of the supply and controlled by valves, one valve for just cold water fill and two independant valves for hot and cold fill.
Are you sure that the water supply hoses are not kinked or squashed? If they are not and yours is just cold fill then the valve is possibly malfunctioning, the control PCB is faulty or there could be a wiring fault.
If it is hot and cold and neither are filling, it could be the control PCB is faulty or there could be a wiring fault again.
Once you have confirmed that the water supply IS actually available (turn off the taps, unscrew the hoses from the washer then turn each tap on a little and gently until some water comes out. If it does screw them back. If it doesn't find out why!) you will need to call a service engineer ;-0(
Sorry cannot be of more assistance.

My salton sdw12 wont go to next stage after it fill with water. had do swich by hand but the didnt want to drain

Some faults cause the program to abort and the machine to go to a dead phase - a faulty wash motor or water heater fault may well be one of those. Also sounds like a problem with your water drain pump or drain tube blockage as in the event of a program aborting they usually pump empty. Sort the water drain problem, ie clear tube or filter, or replace the pump if seized, then try again.

How to check for blockage when washing machine wont pump water out

To determine if your pipes are blocked on your washing machine, when it will not pump out the water you can carry out a simple test. 1st remove the drain hose from your waste pipe or if connected to u bend on sink remove connection. Hold the pipe into a bowl as low to the ground as possible. If water flows from the pipe then your pipes on the machine are not blocked. If your connection is onto a u bend below your sink then before replacing pipe check u benb for blockage.If this fails then your problem is more sinnister and could be a number of reasons as to why your water cannot pump out.

My washing machine wont wash or spin proprly

the water is not pumping out because you have a blockage in the filter unit which is located at the bottom of your machine or possibly a weak pump. the reason that your machine smells is because the water is not discharging. check the filter first for any blockages, i.e coins, bra wires etc. if that doesn't sort it you may need a new pump

My washing machine has two flashing lights and it want drain the water it just stops half way through i think my water pump is broken

machine wont spin while it has water in my advice is to lay the drain pipe level with the floor (outside of your house) so it can drain if it doesn't drain then you have a blockage anywhere from the drum outlet into the pump to the water pipe if it does drian then take the pump apart and check it turns freely

Water is not completely pumped out of machine, I can hear it sloshing under the bowl. Have taken back off and tipped machine and some water has come out but not all of it. It is making the house smell...

sounds like you may have some blockage between the tub and pump or pump to stand pipe where water goes down the drain,check all these areas for blockage or kinked hoses

Washer won't drain.

My washer fills up with water and goes thru the wash cycle but when it's time to drain, it just sits there and clicks.

Wont pump water

If it did not pump at all I would say you had a bad pump. Try removing hoses and check for plug up. If there is no plug up, I would manually try to adjust the timer to see where in the cycle it does not pump. It could be a bad cycle timer.
