It keeps spinning or you just hear noises and it doesn't end cycle ? Following your description regarding water in tub when you start a new cycle,check for : * Switch level - The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will remove the cabinet, you will find it easily. Clear first any obstruction in the tube,In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it doesn't react,you should replace it. * Pump and drain host - Check that pump works and that you have no blockage on your drain line. Good luck !! (courtesy dovi)

F20 on kenmore washer he2 plus , runs through the rinse program fine, only does it in the normal wash and other wash cycles and only when it goes to rinse cycle.


WASHER WILL NOT RINSE:
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle, the most likely cause is the water valve. What happens is the water valve will stop letting cold water into the washer; therefore, once the washer gets to rinse it will either stop or not do anything during the whole rinse cycle.
This is because when you selected your water temperature, you may have selected warm/cold or hot/cold. The hot water came in and you didn't notice any problems. When it got to rinse, the cold water the cold water won't come in. Therefore, the washer does nothing.
The item to check would be your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board. You can also do a live volt test to see if it is getting the full 120 current, but be sure to unplug unit before testing as this is a live test.
Another test u can do to check the water inlet valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.
If you still don't have good water pressure, the problem is in your house plumbing and you need to call a plumber. If you had good water pressure the first time you performed the test, the water valve is bad and needs replacing.
TIMER
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle the timer may be the problem. Sometimes the timer gets stuck in the middle of the cycle or won't turn at all. If the washer runs, but the timer doesn't turn, the timer is bad and needs replacing.
Do you have anti-flood hoses leading to the machine. If you do there is probably a loose tube in the back causing a small leak. When the hoses detect that water is still flowing after a certain amount of time due to the leak it shuts down and causes the machine to turn off during the rinse/spin cycle
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

My GE 15 cycle heavy duty plus washer the water keep running in the rinse cycle


Hum the water inlet valve may be going out or defective, have u noticed any water in tub at bottom when machine is not in use or after a day or so? check it with multimeter. Another suspect could be a bad timer sticking on rinse cycle, or a bad water pressure switch, which is suppose to shut water off at certain water level then start the agitation? In other words when in rinse and water is draining, the pressure switch continues to read low and opens to keep the water flowing to replace water that is lost? Need a multimeter test on all of them

Washer continues to run


Ok. So you are getting ZERO water in the washer or just in the rinse cycle?

My Washer stops at the rinse cycle and will not continue. Fast forward to spin and it works. What might the problem be?


Hello, The problem is going to be one of two related problems . All rinse cycles use only cold water and either the cold side of the water inlet valve is not opening and the cold rinse water is not filling the tub and the washer will sit and wait for ever till the tub is full so it can continue the rinse agaitate cycle. If yo do have a warm rinse try that or try filling on the start cycle with cold water wash and see if cold fills,if not the water inlet valve needs to be replaced. I have included a video showing you how to do that.The part number for that valve is 285805 it could be purchased at your local applaince store or online at; searspartsdirect.com apwagner.com appliancepartspros.com repairclinic.com apdepot.com The other potential problem is going to be the filter screen on the back of that valve is blocked and needs to cleaned. To check that turn off the water supply and disconnect the hose,pop out screen and see if its clogged.Also check for water flowing from the hose when disconnected from washer. Good luck,i hope this helps you to fix your washer.

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

The rinse cycle does not work, but everything else does


I don't know if the problem is solved but last night we ran the washer without any clothes in it and everything seemed to work fine. My wife was able to run a load of laundry and it seemed to work. I hope it was just too much clothes the first time it stopped or the washer was just acting up. Either way, I had nothing to do with the fix. Sorry I couldn't be any more help. Thank you for the link to assistance plan, it might come in handy in the future.

Thanks again,

Washer will not spin


I fixed it yesterday. After checking the continuity of my lid switch and pressure switch and finding them ok I removed the tubing from the pressure switch and applied air (blew into it). There was a clog and blowing on it removed it for now. Apparently the pressure switch was telling the machine that the tub was full of water and wouldn't let it start the spin cycle. I ran three loads last night and it worked perfect. I may have to remove the connection on the side of the tub and clean it properly if it clogs again.

The water won't shut off in my Neptune


davedun: Take a look at the [water load or water level] switch from the inside & u may see a rubber tube coming out and going to the bottom of the washer tub.The rubber tube should be connected to a VACUUM switch.This switch works by pressure from the weight of the tub when it is being filled up with water.When u set the water level switch on a "lite load" ,as the tub is being filled the diaphragm is pushed down causing a vacuum to pull down another switch which causes the water to stop, causing your machine to start washing, rinsing, etc. This vacuum switch could be of many configurations\shapes\sizes & will almost always be at the bottom of the tub to measure the weight of water going in.
The key is a rubber (clear-see through, or black) coming from the top of the control panel going to the switch.
2nd. electronics sensors on the side of the inner tub ( that catches the water ) to measure water weight. Hard to find, because they could look like anything. Even I have trouble finding them!!
P.S. TURN THE POWER OFF AND UNPLUG !!!!
P.S.S. get back to me if u need some more help.
