Question about Washing Machines
Hi reposting as problem not been solved or answered properly.
The machine should be entering a spin cycle however water continues to enter the drum and drain, the spin will not advance because there is water in the drum still. When no power applied there is no water leaking through the water valve. The pressure switch has been replaced. Why is the machine sending a signal to the water valve solenoid when it should be closed? I understand solenoids are energized open, so where is the voltage coming from to open the water valve at the wrong time?
The water fills the drum, pressure then activates the pressure switch to de-energise the water valve solenoid closing it and stopping water from entering the drum.
If there was a leak in the rubber tube from the drum to pressure switch the drum would overfill.
Hi, my machine will not complete the rinse & spin cycle, it appears to just keep repeating the cycle every time it should be going into a fast spin.
I have checked & cleaned pump and attaching hoses, tried different loads.
I have found if I disconnect the rubber tube from the pressure switch it spins OK.
I have blown down the tube and all seems clear (there is no resistance). II have also changed the pressure switch.
If left over night the first wash is OK, but after that it just keeps repeating the above cycle.
I have also checked the motor brushes which are fine.
Is there a vibration balance sensor somewhere that could prevent it from spinning?
I have noticed when I blocked the rubber tube to the pressure switch it reaches full spin speed, whereas previously before the above fault started it was not at full speed?

You should check your pressure switch hose for a pin hole or better still just replace the hose and it should sort your problem out good luck hamstel
