Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?

Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

Washing Machine - Bowl is full of water, won't progress to spin cycle. PU error code displayed.

When all else fails its usually the computer. There's a circuit board that goes bad (mine did after 20+ yrs) and cost around $60. You can usu. see a bulging resistor, capacitor, etc and smells 'burnt' to tell. If you're getting an error code that made be computer declaring itself dead! Sorry. Those beasts are SUCH a pain some times!

Link is just for pics of circuit boards and some info. DON"T go by insane price seen! Not true. WASHING MACHINE CIRCUIT BOARDS

Maybe try Repair Clinic for a video. They MAY have a decent price on your board. Sears has its own site. LG Washing Machine Circuit Board Timer Parts

Is there a special code to direct water to pump, dump bucket or drain

That would be the "Pump" button on the control panel. When you press it, your dehumidifier display should indicate "PUMP", and the unit should start pumping water out that little port at the center rear of the dehumidifier.

Alternatively, you could stand the dehumidifier on a counter and direct your waste water out the larger hose connection into a sink.

I personally carry it (more than five gallons per day) upstairs to the laundry, because it's distilled water - the softest water you can get. Works GREAT in the washing machine. 8) 8) 8)

Does not drain, PU warning on display

Is there Bart Dryer? PU Indicates you have a blocked drain. This could be simple as by cleaning the screen filter. Or more involved. First check all your drainage hose(s) and the Bellows below the tub thru and thru the whole length. Be sure water can flow thru it. If it is still not draining then by Now you know if is the drainage pump is bad and needs to be replaced

My 2005 ford freestar has a high pitched "whistle"

I am having this same issue. I have changed my brakes and now I was going to change the front wheel bearing, but unsure to dump a lot of money out on an unsure fix.
Let me know if anyone has a fix?

The machine will not start. Digital display EF. Continual beep.

FE means overflow condition. That means sand or trash has gotten into the tube going from tub to water level switch. So find that hose and blow it out. Remove the standing water and retry.

Our simpson washing machine is not spoinning and the letters PU flash on the electronic display panel.


PU is pump fault. Usually caused by a blockage. Machine will not spin until all water is drained

Thank You

Fills with water then dumps water over & over seems that is all it does

Does seem like the anti flood system (polystireene float and micro switch at base of washer is triggered) this device automaticaly pumps water out when triggered due to water leak. The water leak could be from a small hole in pipe or a pipe clamp. The washer will only take in water and pump out water if the device is triggered. You must clear the water leak and dry the base of the washer before it works through the full cycle.
