    I do beleive all the water is being pumped out,it just seems like it rinses drains and spins over and over with out the time remaining display going down for example the machine may run for 30 min. but only 3 or 4 min. will run down on the time remaining display.

May seem that the pump had problems, but since you already replace it then that means that it wasn't the pump at all. You might me experiencing a fault into the programing of the timer itself being that it takes to much time to cycle trough all the steps. Better to have it reprogrammed or get a replacement for this issue, not very common issue what happened to you. Good luck!

The motor may not be spinning enough or fast enough for the cycles. so the sensor that say there is still water in the tub make it spin longer. watch your washer and let me know if it still spins as fast as it used to or not. you may need to replace your motor

Although you replace the drain pump is the water draining properly??? perhaps there is an obstruction in the drain hose itself, or even an issue with your drain pipe(standpipe drain hnose is in),if the machine os having an issue cycling past the rinse, it might be an unbalanced load, if hte machine cant properly balance the load it will never acheive high speed spin, it will however try to balance itself by changing rotation of wash, trying to repositon clothing, to get a better balance( internal sensors are determining bal)instead og shoutting off to bother you to do manually soits quite possible that there is no issue buit the machine is doing what it needs to. errors with this machihne will come back to you in a "f Code",

Well, 1-1/2 hrs is normal for your washer. All front load washers take a long time. They wash a lot better than top loaders....

 If it takes more time for drain or something , than it might be a concern............


However, to be on a safer side :) Lets troubleshoot
I would start by removing the hose off the pump that goes to the back wall of the washer and blow through it to make sure there are no obstructions. Also check the other hose from the tub to the pump. If there is, find and clear it. If not, read on. We need to make sure the transmission is working properly before going any further. When operating properly, this washer should drain all excess water (full load setting) in less than 180 seconds. That is the maximum neutral drain time for this particular washer. If you start the machine on a normal cycle with a 10 minute minimum agitate time, the transmission should not spin when it begins to drain. It is very important that you not disrupt the machine during this test, so use a small screwdriver to "trick" the lid switch, so you can have the lid open to see if it spins. If it doesn't spin while draining, then the transmission is okay. If it does begin spinning and draining at the same time, immediately reset for another 10 minutes of agitate and try again. You may have to run this test 1-5 times for an accurate neutral drain test. The most common failure of these transmissions is neutral drain failure. As I stated before, if the unit is spinning and draining at the same time, it won't be able to get rid of the water in time because the resistance of the tub trying to spin will slow down the motor which, in turn, slows down the pump. If the transmission doesn't spin while draining, see how long it takes to expell all the water; it should be less than 180 seconds. If it takes longer than that, there is some kind of restriction in the drain system. Anything from a kinked hose to a sock in the hose, or even a restricted house drain when the washer drain hose is sealed to the standpipe. If your washer drains to a floor drain, there should also be a siphon break in the drain line that may be bad or plugged. Let me know if you have further questions.


Thanks.

The cycle's are controlled by a timer, The knob u turn to start the cycle, that timer is defective, there is no other part that can cause the problem you describe.

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.

Noise and movement when spinning


Could be more than 1 problem by sounds of this. !st may be that heater is not working and so machine will not advance to rince. As for banging this could be caused by pump failing to take water away. Or on a more seriouse note could be drum or bearings. Normally if bearings have gone then it will sound like a plane going over. I think it is likely heater, or /and pumping failure.

F&P washer lights on and beeps


Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.

I am getting a F21 message and the washer does not seem to complete the spin cycle.


Unplug power cord. Take off the front panel (3ea -1/4"hex headscrews on bottom of panel). Get a shallow pan to catch the water and slowly unscrew the pump filter until the water fills up the pan. Repeat until all water is out of the washer tub. Unscrew filter and clean out foreign objects. Put all back together and run rinse spin cycle. If it works, cool...If not you will have to replace the pump.

Won't spin after wash cycle or rinse cycle


CHECK THE FOLLOWING---


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

During short spin cycles between rinses it doesn't pump water out


Try looking to see if the little motor is spinning the drain pump. It is in the bottom right. Occasionally I get a small metal shard which locks the pump and therefore-no draining. You can undo everything and check the pump for blockage. Then if need be, replace the mechanisim. The parts are all on line, as is the manual. or call 800 776-3538

Miele washing machine model W713 front load - issues


If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump
