I am not sure what the problem is... one passibillity :It can be something blocking the pressostat (pressostat ... is the thing regulating the water... when the water is rising... ear pressure will increase in a small pipe leading up to the pressostat.) What can it be?...

if you have lime in your water it can block the intrance to the pressostat after som years. test if this is the problem..

if this is the problem . you chould also clean you machine with acid. Do a wash with asid on 95 degrees (ask for this in a washingmachine shop).. ..

Dirt: take out the small thin pipe(of gum) and clean it.. (the dirt blockin is always nearby drum)

How do I fix washing machine to finish emptying during rinse and spin cycle?

Long shot, but does it fill the same as when new? I would check the atmospheric switch which is a hollow tube that runs down the inside of the drum(not in the wash cage) when the water fills, It pushes air up to stop the fill. It may have gotten clogged. Or partially clogged.

I have an Energy Star front loaded washer GFWN110LoWW. It does not fill with water and makes clicking sounds for a very long time. The drum does not move.

Hello emg27

The machine has water inlet solenoids that are plastic cast into one part where you connect your hoses, H and C. If water does not enter the tub the level sensor will not close contacts sending a signal to start washing. So check water to this valve first, then you can remove the hoses from this solenoid and view the screen washers for build up of contaminates that may be preventing the water from entering, or the valve itself maybe malfuntioned. The solenoid is just a magnetic coil pickup that lifts a stopper internal of the valve. The unit is sold as a complete on piece w/both coils for H and C. The noise you hear may be the magnetic coil energized.
Good luck I hope this helps.

Keeps filling with water when turned on

A lot of wahing machines use a bunch of micro-switches to turn the various solenoids on and off. If your washer has that type of switch, it could be sticking, subsequently sending an "on" signal to the fill solenoid.

GE washing machine does not run, gives humming noise

A washing machine is a simple product.

When trouble shooting anything you have to know what is supposed to do and what is it not doing.

At the begining of a washing machine cycle the machine fills with water until a switch is made telling the machine it is full and ready to agitate. Since it never fills it will stick in that part of the cycle.

When you start a cycle and no water enters the drum you have one of three problems:

1. The water supply is shut off.
2. The solenoid valve that supplies the water is not opening.
3. No power to the washing machine.

Since you are hearing a hum, the machine seems to be trying to activate that valve,
The humming noise comes from the electromagnetic field that activates the valve,

Hotpoint WF321 during rinse and spin, will not go into full spin as machine keeps filling with water.

My F&P 6.5 kg top load washing machine will not fill with water. The wash cycle seems to start okay but no hot or cold water enters. The solenoids seem to be okay

ok. the most comon problem is the inlet filter in the machine. This is located where the hose connect. Disconnect hose and clean out the filters.
If this does not work check the pressure switch which is connected to the drum with a little hose. disconnect that hose and see if it will fill then. Check for current over your water inlet valve.
That are the things which can prevent you from starting the machine

Overflowing washing machine

check the pressure switch . its circluar in shape with 6/8 wires attached, and a small nipple with a 10mm pipe attached. as the water rises in the drum air is pushed up thru this pipe which when working ok , eventually pushes against a switch .hence its name. so, if there is damage to this pipe( maybe rubbing against the drum) the passage of air escapes before reaching the switch. if the pipe is ok then check the switch by blowing up the pipe (with the power off ) and u should hear a small click inside the switch. if not replace

Washer will not stop taking on water although off.

If the machine is takin on water when it is off aswell as on then its the solenoid at the back these are what the hot and cold water pipe are connected to. its will one of them not both.

IF its only takin water in on the wash then its the presurre switch.. most commonly what happends is that a small tube comes up from the bottom of the drum and goes up along the side of the drum and is attached to an electrical pressure switch. when a machine is filling it traps air in that tube and the pressure increases upon that air which force the switch to open and cut of the water

so its either the solenoid or faulty pressure switch or the little pipe is either disconnected or damaged.

hope that helps
