I just moved my Danby portable washing machine down a flight of stairs.(We did so carefully!) It no longer advances through the cycles. Each cycle still works, (filling with H2o, spinning, draining, spinning) but I have to advance the knob to each new cycle myself. It doesn't work automatically. Is there a way I can re-adjust it to work properly?

Re: Washer won't advance from cycle to cycle
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
* It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
* It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

I actually found out (one of) the solution to this by accident. It could be the water source is not providing enough pressure
I purchased a Danby DDW1899W-1 and, using the connector screwed into my utility sink in the basement, I connected the water. When I tried to run a cycle, I had the same results (filled/emptied 4-5 times, beeped and went to dry cycle).
My alternate, long term plan was to put a Y-splitter (with shutoffs) on the hot water line for my washer, and have one hose go to the dishwasher when needed. I purchased a washer line hose from Home Depot and a 3/4" to Quick Connect fitting from Ace Hardware and then connected the dishwasher to this.
And, Voila! Problem solved!!!
To confirm this was the solution, after the first completed cycle, I connected back to the faucet and, once again had the fill/empty/beep/dry problem. Reverting to the split washer water feed, it was able to run the cycles properly (again!!!)
So you may just need a line that will supply more water pressure to the dishwasher.
Good luck and, hopefully, this solves the problem.
I realize the above question is almost 4 years old, but I am sure others are still having this problem. My Danby was behaving the same way: drying cycle light would flash like it was having a myocardial infarction, and the cycle would stop. I could only get the light to stop flashing by turning the unit off. What you didn\'t say above is what happens then: everything most likely returns to normal-- or at least, so it seems. I have now had this happen to me two times in a row with my Danby 1899WP. Each time the machine has started up just fine, drains water out, loads in fresh water, and begins the wash cycle, only to freeze up with that damn flashing red light on the dry cycle and the dishes not clean. I have owned it for about two months, and so far this is my only complaint. I am running it again right now, for the third time, and we shall see what that light does now.... Will report back afterward!
HELLO THERE The cycle doesn't advance or you are unable to use one of the cycles such as light or the normal wash cycle, your problem normally is caused by a bad
timer It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with
water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the
washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance.and if you set it to the normal cycle or light cycle and nothing happens Then you need to
replace the timer. ok? hope this is veery helpful for you Best regards Michael
There might be water in the overflow sensor. I unloaded the dishwasher and lifted the front so the dishwasher rested on its back. There's a narrow gray tube that runs down from the bottom right of the door. The tube runs into a white piece of plastic with some wires coming out of it. There is a rubber plug that covers a nipple on the plastic. Pull the rubber plug off. Mine was quite tight. Tip the dishwasher back onto its casters to drain the water from the overflow. Check to see if the dishwasher functions normally, then put the rubber plug back on.
Danby customer service told me that it was built into the machine. The machine would shut off for about 15 minutes after that loud noise occurs. Then would finish the cycle after that point? Got infants, buy one of these products! LOL
Hi, There is a water level switch in the d/w. located in front corner. You can move it up and down while listening for a clicking noise. Sometimes soap will gum them up so they don't move. when it is overflowing, will the water shut off if you turn the machine off or do you need to turn the water off at the faucet? Please let me know so that I can assist you further.
