Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

The washing machine is under filling water?

This problem is due to fault in the Water-level switch in washing machine.
The Water-level switch is the part in the washing machine that senses the filling water in the tub. When the water reaches to its required quantity the Water-level switch sends the command to stop the water supply. But if the Water-level switch is faulty. It will sense the wrong quantity of water in the machine. And makes the water supply stop bit early then required. So washer does not fills with required water .The Water-level switch is located at the bottom of the outer tub in the washing machine. Many a times removing and reconnecting the switch makes it proper. in other cases it needs to be replaced.
These will help. Thanks

My washer keeps saying err bush hw60_1460d


Oh boy I hope you're in the UK cuz that is a British unit here are the error code explanations
Error 1
Washing machine door lock has failed to operate or respond
The washing machine has detected an error with the door safety lock or interlock preventing operation.
Check door is closed and latched correctly
Check wiring
Check door lock
Error 2
Water drain time out or failure
The washing machine has failed to drain the water in a reasonable time, nominally in six minutes.
Check that filter is not blocked or obstructed
Check drain hose is clear of any blockage or obstruction
Check wiring to drain pump
Check drain pump is not defective
Check level sensor or switch
Check wiring to level sensor
Error 3
Not drained in time allowed - washing machine fails to drain water
Check that filter is not blocked or obstructed
Check drain hose is clear of any blockage or obstruction
Check wiring to drain pump
Check drain pump is not defective
Check level sensor or switch
Check wiring to level sensor
Error 4
Washing machine has detected problem with the wash heater
For this error code you need to check both the water heater or element and thermistor, the washing machine is reporting a fault on the heating circuit with this fault code but it is not capable of identifying exactly where the fault actually lies.
Check water heating element
Check heater for contunuity
Check thermistor or temperature sensor
Check the thermistor resistance
Check wiring to water heating element
Check connections to water heating element and temperature sensor
Error 5
Not drained in time allowed - washing machine fails to drain water
Check water supply is on, clear and not frozen
Check the air chamber and pressure sensor hose for blockages
Check water inlet valve
Check wiring to water inlet valve
Check connections to water inlet valve
Check the main control PCB
Error 6
Motor heat protector error or failure
The washing machine has detected an error on the washing machine's main drive motor circuit in relation to teh overheat protector within the motor itself.
Check motor connector block
Check motor carbon brushes where fitted
Check wiring
Check tacho connections
Check motor
Error 7
Motor error or failure
The washing machine has detected an error on the washing machine's main drive motor circuit but, like other errors cannot pimpoint he exact location or nature of the fault.
Check motor connector block
Check motor carbon brushes where fitted
Check wiring
Check tacho connections
Check motor
Error 8
Washing machine has detected an overfill situation
This error code can be caused by overfoaming which is a result of overloading (see this article) or by overdosing or, incorrect detergent as the pressure sensor will falsely read that there is too much water in the washing machine.
Also check the pressure sensor and that the machine has not actually overfilled with water.
Check for overfoaming or over soaping
Check the air chamber and the pressure switch hose
Check water level sensor
Check wiring to water pressure sensor
Check connections to water level sensor
Check main electronic controller
UNb
Washing machine has detected an out of balance situation
This error code is caused by an imbalanced of incorrect load in the washing machine
Check for overfoaming or over soaping
Check the air chamber and the pressure switch hose
Check water level sensor
Check wiring to water pressure sensor
Check connections to water level sensor
Check main electronic controller

Samsung model wa 7584C1. has 1E error code have changed pressure switch and tub hose still shows the same error please help


IE - Water level sensor fault This fault code is fairly self-explanatory and tells you that the washing machine has detected an error with the pressure sensor or pressure switch
  • Check water level sensor
  • Check wiring to water pressure sensor
  • Check connections to water level sensor
  • Check main electronic controller

    doesn't fill


    Possible that the water level sensor is faulty as it tends to indicate before the level has reached thereby starting the rinse cycle.
    Usually this can be due to faulty level settings or fault in the pressure switch as it can be acting too fast. It will be best to clean the inlet valve and check the flow , test the water level sensor and see if this works by blowing into the diaphragm.

    why does the washer start moving before the water is filled? Before the water would fill before it starts? Its only a year old.


    It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle with the water level sensor working to the preset level. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor.In this case it seems that the level sensor is triggered to come on before as there is a false setting or fault on the sensor which can be the suspect.

    Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
