this clicking of the timer tells you there is a fault somewhere, this could be anything, you have to check things i would do them in this order check the heater element, most common fault second the pump but you said that works then check the motor that drives the drum belt look at the motor control board for any signs of burning etc, this could indicate a motor fault you have not given much info, but with a fault like this thats all you can say, i have given you a brief starting point what and where to look, so happy hunting if i can be of further help get back to me

SOURCE: kenmore top load (model # 110 82370120) drain problem

Good AM. I see here that you have a fairly old belt drive Kenmore washer. The real problem with these is that the parts for them are so very expensive anymore to get. A timer (which you may be needing) will run you around $100.00 to $175.00 depending on where you live. Very expensive repairs on these, but if you want to go for it, here are some hints to help. Sounds like you have one of three problems. First off PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE BEFORE WORKING ON IT. Your timer may have lost or has a stuck contact inside (unrepairable in most cases) which is making it do something is shouldnt be doing in that area of the timer. This would probably be the most expensive of your repair. The next thing is it could be the water level switch could be going bad. This one is highly doubtful since it fills and stops filling, but I have heard (but never have seen) that they can short out sometimes and cause wacky operation. Both these issues can be fixed by remove the console rear panel and front knobs to remove both. The next item could be a defective wig-wag in the bottom of the unit. One of the positioning solinoids maybe going bad and sending bad signals back to the timer.

None of these problems are really hard to fix. And truthfully (even though some of these guys will be mad) you can sometimes find these parts on ebay for a halfway good price. Part numbers for each are:

Timer: 381860
Water Level Switch: 359712
Wig-Wag: 89814

Good luck with this one, and if you know how to use one, try to run resistance with an ohm-meter on your wig-wag to be sure your getting power flow through the soilnoids (you will have 2, be sure to unplug the solinoids before testing to be sure its a true test) before replacing.

SOURCE: indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing

Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

SOURCE: Filling With Water

I recently had the same problem. I checked the end of the air hose coming from the tub. It had a tear in it right at the connection. I just cut off the hose at the tear and placed the hose back on the connection.

SOURCE: fill will not stop

you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.

try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.

if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Washing Machine at the start of cycle starts to fill with water for about 5 seconds and then drains starts to fill again and drains as before,after about 10 Mins Machine cycle ends.


Two things to check, maybe the fill hoses are clogged taking too long to fill therefore it begins to drain or you have the drain hose down nthe drain toon far creating a siphon effect!

Washing machine will agitate on spin cycle instead of spinning. All cycles work fine, fill, wash/agitate, drain, fill, rinse, drain, but anytime it should be spinning it is agitating instead. Is it the...


Could be, Try any of the online appliance parts stores, Mfg, model possibly year. There is a possibility depending on age that a "reversing switch" is not working properly or connections from or to it are bad. Or possibly the drive motor is not "accepting" the switch's instruction.

Samsung washing machines water drains continously


The drain hose is too low, you need to lift the height of the drain hose as it is siphoning and won't be able to fill to the required level.

Kicking out water during wash cycle - spin instead of agitation


Hi,
Try these

  1. Check the drain hose, it should be at least as high as the top of the wash tub, about 38 inches.
  2. The drain hose must sit loosely in the house drain. Do not seal the air gap around the drain hose or a siphon will occur.
  3. Check the drain control lever
  4. Test the drain control coils
  5. Check the cam bar
pls rate my suggestion..

Fills but does not wash


Hi!
That happens when for some reason any of the two drain/spin cycles are interrupted. Try this:
have the washer empty, then set the machine to run the last cycle to the end of it, when you usually
lift the cover to take out the clothes, that ought to do it, I had the same problem when diagnosing a
timer problem.

Washer fills, drains instead of agitating, fills, etc


ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
