How do I fix washing machine to finish emptying during rinse and spin cycle?

Long shot, but does it fill the same as when new? I would check the atmospheric switch which is a hollow tube that runs down the inside of the drum(not in the wash cage) when the water fills, It pushes air up to stop the fill. It may have gotten clogged. Or partially clogged.

My machine a Bosch excel vario keeps displaying E18 and flashes and keeps pipping I canot get the door open tried two washes

E18 indicates a time out draining.

I'm assuming it's stopped full of water.
Put the machine on spin only and see if it empties and spins.

After that you'll need to check it over.

It's very likely there is a blockage preventing the machine draining.

It can also be a faulty pump or control board but this is less likely.

It's a lot of work but try the following.
Check the drain hose where it connects to the house drains.
If onto a connection, take the hose off and check both for a blockage.

This is normally under the sink.

If ok, you'll need to manually remove the remaining water from the machine.

Put a shallow dish in front of the filter/pump cover. (Bottom front of the machine)

Slacken the cap a little to drain the water.

If there is a draining tube, use that to empty the water.
Tighten the cap to stop the water when you need to empty the container.
(If you pull the machine out and tilt it rearward, you can get a larger container in place for a while).

Once the machine is empty of water, take the cap off.
Clean out any debris in there.

Once cleaned out, take the laundry out of the machine.
With the cap off, put the machine on spin only. (If it resets).

Listen at the open filter to see if the pump is running.
(You should see the pump impellor rotating)
If the pump isn't running, let me know.

If the pump is running, refit the cap and try the machine again.
Good Luck

I have a kenmore oasis # 110.27087603 the machine stopped working. i emptied the water and it begun working until it stopped at 21mins into the wash cycle. i emptied the machine and it did the same thing....

most likely a drain pump issue or the main board is not telling the pump to run. board is pricey for a test but the pump could be stopped. if you do not hear the drain pump running, try replacing it, if the pump hums but no water moves, you need to check intake . pump is underneath washer on the right. the left is a recirc pump and is not interchangable.

My dishwasher is sticks in between washing cycles

These mechanical timer machines have to follow a series of logical steps to complete the program - ie, empty. fill to level 1. wash. heat to temp. etc etc
My guess is the machine is not heating, as you say it works for part of the program - or possibly it is not emptying correctly? check water heating element and drain pump.
Program 4 eco is a separate program from 3, using low temperature washing - the machine does stop between 3 and 4 normally and doesnt carry on through.

The wash liquid does not empty after the wash is finished

hi, it sound like your waste outletis obstructed or the pump is not working, to empty the machine pull the easte pipe out of the stand pipe ,get a bowl, keep the pipe above the level of the drum! slowly lower pipe into bowl the water should run from the machine to stop the flow lift the pipe above the drum level, continue until machine empty! if the MACHINE EMPTIES THIS WAY THERE WILL NOT BE A BLOCKAGE AND YOU SHOULD CHANGE THE PUMP, hope this helps you

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Neff S5555 - empties water but stuck in draining mode.

if this machine uses an electrical-mechanical timer with cam switches, the try oiling the shaft bushings both for the timer motor and cams-the timer may be getting stuck because of dry or corroded bushings

The Washing Machine fills and then empties with not running a wash cycle

possible a pressure stat fault. some pressure stats have a too high water detector which turns on pump
