Re: wachine machine is only draining on K cycle

We have a Siemens A 08-16 front loader waching machine which doesnt appear to be emptying after its cycle. Any ideas about what the problem might be? Is it likly to be a blockage in the pipe?

Washer control humming

it's always worth replacing the brushes - pattern one's are cheap at around 20 quid so it's just about the cheapest thing to try and washing machines do all mannor of crazy things you wouldn't think were related - like not draining (the water does still drain out but when it hasn't spun properly the clothes are still full of water for instance) worn brushes have a differing effect on difrent washing cycles. the other thing to suspect is the controller -but these are so expensive you can nearly always buy a cheap washing machine for less

Cycle not working properly


When problem is in the spin part of the cycle it is usually because of either drain filter blockage, siphoning because of incorrect setting of the drain hose at the back, or because of a defective pressure switch.

Check the drain filter, check the setting of the drain hose at the back; clean the rubber hose attached to the pressure switch and eventually replace the pressure switch.

Most washers hide a copy of the service tech sheet inside the control panel assembly, tucked in a sealed envelope. If you retrieve the tech sheet you can also run the diagnostic cycle illustrated in the document.

My washing fills and drains properly, but will not agitate or run the spin cycle. I sounds like it is going through the cycle properly, but will not turn the drum (spin cycle) or agitator.

Try picking a different wash cycle, instead of your annual quick wash cycle opt for the longer wash cycle and then you may find that the spin cycle may kick-in, hope this works for you, good luck!

Wachine machine bangs when on spin cycle.

Unless your top loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

The reason why it aint spinning is because it is not draining. All new washing machines have what you call a pressure switch that can tell if water is present in the machine.. if present it will not spin.

your problem is either you have a blockage in your filter (5 min job) or you drain pump is not working properly

hope this helps merry christmas
