Re: Machine stuck mid cycle

Just had this problem whilst trying to get kids off to school you know the deal, suit on reddie brek in your ear, wife shouts back as you scream help me get the bowl!!!!!!!
This is a pump siezed inication.  Well thats what mine was.  Switch it off at the wall, remove bottom whit cover by the screws, mind there are some hidden.  On the right at the bottom the pump has a plastic splash cover on it.  flick that off and slide the pump towards the cylinder it is held in by 2 lugs on a top heavy eight figure and then it lifts out.  Remove power lead dont worry it only goes back in one way.  The 2 clips holding the black pipe from the machine (this will have 2 bowls full of water so have one standing by and within reach, also make sure the wife is behind you and keeps quiet!! the white that is the drain are both ratchet style.  with a bit of persuasion they will slide off each other if you get a twist on them with a screwdriver.  (the teeth go across each other a lot easier than trying to pull against whats they are designed not to do).  once you have the pump in your hand look in both ends for obstructions, mine was a party balloon which was well and truly wedged.  Try it for free movement if not then maybe a new pump, get the part number off its id plate.  Further tests if your careful plug it back in and cycle the machine and see if it spins up.  If not then you may be in another world of components and relays.  i have had my machine for 7 years and am amazed how well its doing, now its becoming an old friend as i am getting to know its inner workings more and more.  Good luck, i am on email if you need.

My washing machine washed a load on the medium cycle but when it is time for it to drain the water it just stop the only thing it is doing is fulling back up with water and not doing anything else on

Not sure what you are saying, I assume the water is not pumping out at the end of the wash cycle. Is the water draining out at the end of each cycle? Is it spinning at all? Is the exhaust tubing clogged? Is the pump burned out or are you trying to pump it uphill too much. If it's stopping mid wash, try advancing it manually past where it's stuck and see if it continues. I have that problem, the tank fills with water and it gets stuck at the 6 minute changeover. It will run stuck at this point indefinitely if I let it. We just set a timer for the fill time, then manually advance it past this stopping point.

Hja8703 will not drain

before doing any of the below please try not to get any electric wires wet and make sure the plug is off oor better still unpluged....good luck.....tip be carefull not to pull any little wires might have somethink stuck in the pump causing the machine not to empty the water (the pump is normaly found under the bottom of the washing machine) if you do undo the pipe going to the pump watch out because there is water in there most of the time.......also check the filter because somethink could be stuck in there (these are normaly found on the front of the washing machine under the bottom front cover) careful because a little bit of water comes out...

Error on Hotpoint WD420

Try syphoning the water out by laying the hose down into a bucket or similar, once the water is out, try it again, hopefully this will clear the prob
If there is a reset button, try this once the washer is empty.
Hope this helps.

Hoover hpe 236. water not draining, stops mid cycle, lights flash

Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Hope this is of some help to you.

Stop in mid cycle

HD= No drain.

HI, check the following to address this issue.

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.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

On and off light and energy save and reduces creases lights flash

Hi Snarey, it sound like your door lock has passed away, you will need to make sure the appliance is unpluged, empty the water out of the drum, and check the vacuum switch which opperates the lock.

Washing machine keeps stopping mid cycle

If you found coins and such in the drain filter then there is a possiblility that the impeller in the drain pump motor was damaged and you are not getting good water flow thru it. The machine will error out and stop mid cycle if it detects it has not drained in a set amount of time. OE indicated a drain error. I suspect you need to have the drain pump motor assembly replaced.
