You have a sock in the pump. If no noise in spin you have a bad lid switch.

Roper washing machine does not fill for rinse cycle. Goes directly to rinse agitate without water.

Without Model number I am only guessing but I suspect you have a blocked sensing tube that travels from the Level selector switch to the side of the tub somewhere. It is possible for this plastic tube to become partially clogged and not allow trapped air to vent when tub is drained of water. Usually this problem manifests itself as an overflow of the tub. Check the full length of this clear hose and see if the end nearest the tub looks like it may have debris or dirty detergent clogging it.

This hose is pushed onto a nipple mounted to a reservoir on the side of the tub. Push a thin copper wire 4-5 inches into the those after removing from nipple and also down into the nipple an inch or two before reinstalling the hose to the nipple. You MIGHT even blow into the hose while you have it off and you SHOULD hear a clicking sound coming from the level selector switch body.

Good Luck. Come back with Model number under lid if that doesn't help.

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.

Just had the exact same issue with my F&P it would stay in the drain cycle(without draining). It would show 2 minutes left in the cycle, dropping to 1 minute, but would never complete the cycle.
For some reason the machine would not drain the water from the drum and would continually remain in the drain cycle, spinning the load(back & forth), but not draining the water.
This is how I sorted the machine: -
1. I turned off & unplugged the machine.
2. I drained the machine manually. Opening the manual drain compartment located at the bottom right of the machine.
a). Firstly drained the majority of the water using the small black hose into a plastic container(ice cream container will be fine). Took a little while as the machine was quite full and I also didn't want to flood the laundry.
b). Once I had drained most of the water I undid the filter plug to drain the remainder of the water, which wasn't too much & was able to mop up with a towel. I gave the filter a good clean, removing as much build up in there(which in actuality was very little lint, gunk, etc. Though I did find a small button & a collar stay wedged in there).
3). I blew very hard into the washing machine drain hose a few times(read this on another forum so thought I'd give it a try!). Use a plastic bag, etc. to cover the hose etc. for hygiene purposes :)
4). I then plugged & turned on the machine. The machine went straight back into the 2 minute drain cycle. It attempted to drain/pump remaining water, however this time machine successfully went through the 2 minute drain cycle. Machine stopped, counted down, click and I was able to open the door.
I put the washing through a rinse setting to see whether the machine would complete cycle. I can happily report that the machine completed the rinse cycle on the washing with no issues. I also put through another load to see if it would complete a full wash cycle, which I can report it happily did so.
This may have just saved me a grand$ :)
Good luck.

I have a Miele W1918 washer which has worked perfectly for a decade. Now there is not enough water to fill the tub during the first 'rinse' phase of normal cycles or the 'separate rinse' cycle. The machine...

I have exactly the same problem. I am currently getting around the issue by letting the machine do the washing then at the end of that cycle do a manual rinse cycle.

What is the best way to winterize a standard large capacity washing machine?

If the product will be exposed to sub-freezing temperatures, turn off the water supply to washer, disconnect fill hoses, drain them and reconnect. Remove the drain hose from the standpipe in the wall and place it into a shallow pan at floor level untill the water floe stops. Unplug unit and you are good to go.

If no sub-freezing temps are expected, turn off water supply. Turn on washer for a warm wash cycle for a few seconds to relieve the pressure in the hoses. Turn off machine and unplug it.
