Stuck in cycle...

Hello My Washing machine will not pass the wash cycle and is full of water. It will not rinse or spin or respond when the dial indicates anything past an initial wash. Can I fix it myself or is it at all fixable? Thanks.

I have the same washing machine. I had the same problem you have. My problem was the timer. It just stops at that one position. If you can slowly move it yourself and it starts to do something after you turn it a little bit then your timer is burn up in that one position. You have to replace it. You cannot tear it apart and try to fix the timer. It is sealed by the factory. UNPLUG THE ELECTRICAL CORD. Take the back off of the panel at the top. Then you will see where the timer is bolted on. Remove the timer and take it to your nearest Kenmore dealer. Make sure you write down the serial and model number off of the back of the panel you removed. They will need it to get you the correct part. You can sometime find some small companies that carry household appliances. They can order it for you at a cheaper price.

I just found this page because I was having the same problem with a coin-op machine in my basement (thus no settings to change). I resolved the problem by opening the lid and grabbing the center piece and shaking it back and forth as hard as I could.

Problem solved for today.

The problem you described, is fixable and to my opinion, you can fix it by yourself. Check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely(frozen or stiff)replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you replace the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. In this case, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?

Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
