The most common cause of this problem is the pressure switch not working.However it is unlikely that the switch itself is at fault,generally the tube from the drum to the switch is either damaged or disconnected.This can be checked by disconnecting the tube from the drum end and sucking and blowing through it, if the tube is ok you should be able to hear the switch clicking on and off. If you cannot hear the clicking then the tube will need replacing....

SOURCE: GE Front Load Washer

Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!

The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.

SOURCE: Kenmore washer overflows during rinse cycle.

SOME OF THESE MACHINES HAVE TWO PRESSURE SWITCHES IN THEM, ONE FOR THE MAIN WASH WATER LEVEL AND ONE FOR THE RINSE WATER LEVEL. CHECK FOR A PLUGGED AIR PRESSURE HOSE FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE PRESSURE SWITCHES.

SOURCE: Agitator Not Working

My Hotpoint VBXR1090B top loading washing machine quit spinning during the rinse cycle and also quit agitating. The water filled up and drained just fine --no leaks.
Here's how I fixed it in 5-minutes.
Tools: 

  1. Putty knife
  2. Nut driver - I used a multi-purpose screwdriver without any heads attached.
Procedure:
  1. Unplug washer from the electrical outlet for safety
  2. Release two spring clips holding the front panel on: Insert a putty knife 5" in from the side between the top and the front panel. Pull the front panel forwards.
  3. Unscrew 2 screws holding the top down.
  4. Lift top - it's somewhat hinged in the rear with three tabs inserted in control panel.
  5. The little red tab at the end of the lid switch should be between the lip of the opening and the top; not sitting on top of the lip as mine was.  It's thin enough steel to push it with your bare hands.
  6. Make sure when the lid closes it actually causes the switch to turn on. You should hear a click.
  7. Put everthing back together. Plug washer back in. Put your tools away.
  8. Voilà. Done. Easy.  Even a woman or a ****** could do it.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer won't agitate or spin . But it does drain the water.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...

SOURCE: the washer will fill up

I would check out your lid switch. You can look at the lid and see where the actuator pin would go down to depress the lid switch. See if your switch is broken off. You could also take a flat head screwdriver and manually depress the switch and see if you hear a click from it. It should run if your getting a click. Hope this helps _MJ_

Maytag washer (LAT7400AAV)shuts off during rinse cycle


The machine control board is programmed to allow a maximum continous fill time of six minutes
or an accumulated fill time of 8 minutes for each full wash cycle.
If the required fill time exceeds the time limit, the washer will shut down.
This is to prevent flooding in the event there is a loose hose clamp or damaged air dome hose.
Check the incoming water lines for a minimum pressure of 20 psi.
If lower, the customer can use smaller clothes loads and reduce the pressure to 10 psi.
An alternative solution would be to change the plastic inlet screens to metal screened washers
and remove the nozzle extender found in the water valve inlet hose near the dispener inlet."

The washer only fills halfway up during rinse cycle only, even on high water setting. it fill completely during the wash cycle.


Has it always done this or just recently? Some washers have lower rinse fills then spray the water on the clothes as it goes through its cycle.

During the fill cycle, the washer leaks water?


I've repaired leaks from bad rubber washers on the fill hoses as well as loose hose clamps on the back of the fill solenoids that run into the tub. Check closely.

Hot water running continously


If your FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW has water flowing water with the power off or water fill cycle has ended then your water valve is stuck open. I’m sure crud in the valve seats preventing the washer water valve from seating. The water valves are sealed units and need to be replaced. I Haven’t had to replace yet but I will post links to the SM and parts replacement link. See this post for possible issue with a new substitute 12002242 part replacement.

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse


while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!

Washer will not fill with cold water during cycle


it sounds like your mixture valve is faulty on the cold water side. that is the valve where you screw the hose ends on. it needs to be replaced you can purchase one at your local sears, be sure to take your make and model number with you
