    did this
    Hi my wma12 has a filter. Turn all electrics off. Take off the back
    panel at bottom left is a black bendy pipe with a clip on it. Obviously
    drain all water via the hose lower than the washer first. remove the
    clip from the black pipe that connect to the washer this is the filter
    it has a plastic ball inside. Remove all debris inside replace ball and
    reconnect to the washer drum with clip. Hope this works. If not it
    sounds as if your drain pump has died. These are around £16 to replace
    it is the part the outlet hose connects to it is helf on with plastic
    clips and should be easy to replace. Thanks


    definate not just the filter

You need to check the pump filter which is accessed by removing lower rear panel of washer.
On the right you will see a large black hose, ondo securing clip and remove hose, be careful because there will still be water in it.
Better still , lay hose down into a bowl or similar to drain any remaining water in m/c.
Inside you will see the plastic filter, remove and clean, refit filter and hose, make sure you get it on properly
Test it for leaks, and that should be it.
If it still does not drain then you need to check the pump is o/k.
You can do this by listening or feeling if you can hear the pump going.
BE CAREFUL

Any more info , let me know.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.

My Kenmore 500 top loading washing machine wont work right. sometimes it will work and other times it wont. I will put a load in it and sometimes when it hits the rinse cycle it seems like it gets stuck...


for the top loading washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, if clog your drain pump of some hair pins,cotton buds or coins or any small item,that the cause of water stuck,and it will long time draining or totally not running the drain pump.and its cause of stop of cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time,because after washing the pump must be on to remove water before start the next cycle.and the unit top load have drain pump you must be up the drain hose up to 90cm from floor lever to make the water lever is make in normal,the water automatically goes out by drain pump.
and for unbalance most of all top loader have problem in unbalance, the main reason is overload or the type of cloth you wash.

The wash cycle is not working. It doesn't agitate. Then the water drains and starts the rinse cycle. Then the spin. The spin cycle doesn't get all of the water out of the washing machine. Laundry...


If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Wont adavace after wash cycle like its stuck replying back


Hi just read your posting. The problem appears to be your drain pump is either blocked or faulty.If you would like I can guide you throe the removal of the pump. The reason it does not reach full spin speed is there is still water under the bowl slowing it down.It is impossible to drain the machine by hand completely.Please reply If you require extra help on the pump removal.

I have just run a wash cycle and when it had finished the clothes were still very wet and water was laying in the bottom of the drum. I have tried to do a repeat wash but the machine will not work but...


You have most likely selected by mistake the no spin option coupled with extra rinse  - press again the rinse button to unselect that and put the spin speed at max.

Kenmore elite washer problem


sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there
