SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Lower washing machine function inoperative in Maytag stackable

This is very odd, and probably isn't going to be any help,,,, but i know that most top loading washers have motors that spin in 2 directions. 1 direction engages the transmission/gearbox which than makes the agitator go back and forth while also turning the water pump in a direction that actually sucks in air, or water. When the motor spins in the other direction the transmission/gearbox engages so that only the drum spins and the water pump now does its job and pumps out any water in the drum before and while its spinning. With this in mind, and the fact that you say the washer only spins,,,, its possible that the motor is only spinning in one direction allowing the washer to drain and spin,,,, but not agitate.

SOURCE: Water pours out the bottom of machine during cycle

Don't get rid of that machine. Those can last 30 years easily, and the stuff you get today cannot compare. You got a bad seal going from the basket to the outside tub. If left go, the motor eventually will short out. You will need to remove the adgitator first, by pulling up hard on it. Then grease the spline before you put it back. A 13mm metric socket (12 point) to take out the bolts holding down the basket. That rubber boot you will see in there is about 12" inches across at the bottom, and about 8" at the top, and looks like that funny hat Goober used to wear on Andy Griffith. The bottom band goes to the tub bottom, and the top goes up against the transmission. The clamps are reuseable, and the boot should be less than $30.00.

SOURCE: GE Profile washing machine not finishing cycles

the OL error is for over load.that is when you over load the clothes in the washing machine. If your washer doesn't spin or agitate on either the delicate or regular cycle, check these:

Selector switch
Clutch assembly
Drive motor
Selector switch If your washer has a selector switch on the control panel, make sure the button for your selection is pressed all the way in, or set properly.

Clutch assembly Many GE®/Hotpoint® washers use a clutch and an automatic shift lever. This assembly is quite complicated. If there's a problem with it, you probably should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washing machines have multiple-speed drive motors. Though it's uncommon, the drive motor may work fine on one speed but not on another. If the drive motor has failed on one speed, you need to replace the entire motor.

You need to remove top cover to get to inlet valve (part where hoses attach). Be careful while testing parts for 120 volts. The inlet valve usually has 2 electric coils on it, some have 3 coils. While the machine is in fill cycle, check for 120 volts across each set of terminals on each coil (round plastic part with 2 terminals at each end). 1 coil is hot water--one is cold water (in some 3 coil valves 3rd coil is warm). If 120 volt is present depending on if machine is on hot or cold, the electronic boards and controls are good. Problem will be with the inlet valve itself and will need replaced. If no voltage, problem may be with control board or wiring.

Have an older geneal elecrtric top loading washer that won't wash clothes on gentle cycle.


more times than not it would be your setting dial or switch is bad. You can still use it for regular loads but you might start looking for a different washer. It would cost to much to replace.

Your washer may be doing this because you use far too much detergent or non HE detergent. To solve, use 1 eyedropperfull of liquid HE detergent, or one half teaspoon of powdered HE detergent dissolved in extremely hot water. Try running a Basketclean cycle with vinegar to remove the extra suds which can STILL be lurking in your drums and lengthening your rinsing time.

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin the cycle selector dial


The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

for model: WHDSR316G1WW General Electric Washing Machine

Unplug the machine at least 30 seconds
Turn the dial to the spin cycle, but do NOT pull it out yet.
Plug the machine back in and then lift and close the lid 11 times within 15 seconds and finally pull the knob to start the washer on spin cycle.

This should clear the error code.

How do I turn off the beepers on my Bosch washer


To turn the beep off (or volume down) on the Exxcel 7 (BOSCH WAE24468GB you do the following:
1. Turn setting dial to off. 2. Turn dial one step clockwise (wait for panel to light) 3. Keep finger on 'RPM' button and turn dial another step clockwise and release finger. 4. The default setting of '2' should appear on the display, this represents the Button Signal Volume 5. Pressing 'Ready in' button cycles through the volume settings from 0 (off) to 4 (very loud!). 6. Turn dial another step clockwise to set the 'Information Signal Volume', which is also set to '2' by default. This is the one that annoys everyone at the end of the cycle!
All the manuals are on the Bosch website, if you know the model code.
