Filling with water over night? Two problems here, either your control panel is ghosting or you could have low water pressure or not fully on. The fill valves need 20 pounds to keep them shut and there is a small issue of soft touch buttons sticking or closing from error. A error code of F2- is water issue, ok on a HE4 and 5 having power off press drain/spin then select no spin for drain speed and press prewash until C :00 is in display. A little different for HE 5. The tech manual is in the kick panel just in case attached at the right side frame if not at the panel, the screws are 1/4 or a 9/32 for the torx head screws.

I had this same problem with my washer a few years ago. I finally opened it up and found that there was a dime inside the pump blocking the outlet for the water. Sometimes the dime would not perfectly block the hole, so it would work fine, and then the next day it wouldn't work. No idea on how it got inside the pump, but I got it out finally. It could also be a problem with the timer......I would say you should at least call a service company and ask them first.

Downy goes first than soap


I fill the washer with water first

Then open the lid put in the soap
3/4 cap full,then then 2/3 cap downy

(Both together-bleach as well- if a white load)

I add only to clear water after it fills

Then allow the water to mix the soap

Then add the cloths a few at a time

NEVER put the cloths in & add soap
on them with no water or use the silly
places on the top they say to add stuff

You only add soap etc to plain water &
no cloths & mix first,then cloths go in

Common Sense as to what is taking place

The part about the softener was just silly

It is in the water mixed with soap etc & all goes out
at one time

It is a one step deal

Water,Soap,Downy,then Cloths your done

My Kenmore 500 top loading washing machine wont work right. sometimes it will work and other times it wont. I will put a load in it and sometimes when it hits the rinse cycle it seems like it gets stuck...


for the top loading washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, if clog your drain pump of some hair pins,cotton buds or coins or any small item,that the cause of water stuck,and it will long time draining or totally not running the drain pump.and its cause of stop of cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time,because after washing the pump must be on to remove water before start the next cycle.and the unit top load have drain pump you must be up the drain hose up to 90cm from floor lever to make the water lever is make in normal,the water automatically goes out by drain pump.
and for unbalance most of all top loader have problem in unbalance, the main reason is overload or the type of cloth you wash.

I want to keep the water in my Roper top load washer overnight so it will soak the load of whites I have started but the machine drains.


You should be able to select a soak cycle without having to turn off the water supply, but it may time out eventually and drain the tub. This p[events oversoaking the clothes

Frigidaire Affinity Washer making clicking sounds after power outage.


Sounds like either the control board or the timer is faulty at this point. Contact a professional so they can diagnose the unit fully and repair where needed.

The washer will fill up with water but won't complete the cycle or drain. This has happened before, and I would spin the knob a few times and switch the load size selection. It always randomly started


it sounds like a bad timer there....! if after you selected a different load it drained......!

if it didnt drain at all on any mode I would say a bad lid swtich.
