    Hello jjpc67
    How old is your washer?
    What is the error code???

    Check the pressure switch -the system that determines correct water
    level in the drum. Its a round item about 3 inches across with several
    wires connected, it sits under the top cover. Its an air operated
    switch which tells the machine water has reached the correct level.
    Disconnect the thin rubber pipe from the switch and blow down through
    it to clear any blockage. Switch itself may be faulty but its more
    likely the pipe is blocked.

    Also check the filter - generally located behind a panel at the foot of
    the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are
    hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is
    removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic
    fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some Hotpoint, Indesit and Ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the
    one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump).
    Remove the back cover, locate hose, remove the tensioner clip by
    squeezing the tabs together, remove the hose, take out filter and clean.


    After 18 months
    my WD12X Indesit washing machine gave up the ghost, a repairman came,
    took one look at it, and said, it's an Indesit, they're always going
    wrong, it's not worth repairing. Searching on the web rapidly confirmed
    that indeed Indesit washing machines are always going wrong. To add
    insult to injury, my Indesit cooker (also 18 months old) went wrong the
    same week, which cost £60 to repair, and my Indesit
    diswasher is giving me cause for concern too. Indesit offered the usual
    fob off excuses you would expect, and in short showed no concern for
    the fact their machines break down so shortly after the guarantee
    expires. My advice, avoid Indesit like the bubonic plague, their
    machines are a waste of money.

WFL 2260 Fills hot, fills cold, no wash action, move control to drain, empties, move control to spin, no spin but goes thro. cycle ends program door unlatches, any suggestions?

Motor brushes, worse case scenario motor complete. Run the following motor test.
1. Put main dial to off
2. Press and hold start button whilst turning dial one click to left (easycare 30).
3. When display show 8.88 or two of the progress light come on, release the start button
4. Turn dial anticlockwise to 60 cotton (take the long way, NOT thru OFF or you'll have to start over)
5. Press start

6. Motor should rotate in both directions, pump runs, motor kicks up to full spin.
7. No motor action and two lights flashing on progress lights (separated by a light that's not on) indicates a motor fault.
As suggested brushes or complete motor.
Hope this helps

You said it does not progress...meaning the dial does not eventually move? it may be waiting on a water level sensor to be tripped. The dishwasher is just not filling. The water valve solenoid may be stuck or defective. or a wire may have come off the valve solenoid.

The machine continually goes through the cycle and then starts from the begining again by filling with water

The controller (big round button in the middle) is stuck. If you can't force it to end the cycle (tap on it, move it thru different positions and start the machine for each), then it must be replaced.

Washer does not progress through cycle

it might be the pressure switch which in part controls the cycles eg when water enters drum air pressure builds up through a tube connected to pressure switch which has electrical is round in shape and if is the fault, it has to be replaced. regards

Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.

that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:

I quote from : The cycle doesn't advance

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • Itmay be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills withwater, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinsewater. See There's no cold water.
