Question about Siemens WXL142 Front Load Washer
Siemens XLS 140 worked fine for 2 years. Moved to a new address and now it will not move off the wash cycle automatically. All functions appear to work if I move the control knob onto a new setting eg rinse, pump, spin. Switch on a wash cycle and the machine fills normally. Auto load balancing occurs. A target time is set. But then it just keeps washing! If I move it to spin, it says "machine too full". Move it to drain, and all the water is removed. I have not detected any problems in the fill hoses. The drain filter seems to be clean, although I have not looked other than at "ground level" behind the trap door. The pressure switch works if I blow into it, but presumably the other pressure sensor is used to detect the level by varying its output voltage, so cannot easily be checked (although I could try). I cannot see any loose wires, but I have not removed the front panel.

If washer does not fill.
If water is not getting into the machine, check the following:
To start cut power to the applianc3e for five minutes, this can fix a jammed timer control.
Check if the hot and cold water faucets are connected, and have good pressure.
If that does not work you may need to call a repairman to test the following:
The inlet valve must be tested by energizing it , testing valve solenoid, and reading voltages to identify a fault in wiring (contact).
If the inlet valve is fine when tested, worth having a look at the water level switch, if it is stuck on overfill position , it will prevent water from getting into the machine.
Lastly,the timer control board should be tested, to ensure that the problem is not a faulty timer keeping the inlet valve on close position.

I have the same problem since yesterday. I've seen that probably it doesn't warm up the water. If I change washing temperature to "cold" everything works normally. I think that heater is broken.
Have You resolved your problem? Have You called service?
