Otherwise has to drain manually, - meaning pushing the run cycle and then stopping it after five seconds. A few times doing this makes it drain completely.
Now it seems the expansion of the plastic on running the cycle so often has made the innermost spike which feeds water to the upper level come out!
Any way of getting it back in again? How does that lower spinner come out? (when I get it out, I will clean out that lousily designed hidden lower basket where the cutter-impeller which substitutes for a filter resides: Reasonably sure copper drain pipe isn't blocked)
