SOURCE: Simpson Esprit 750 washing machine timer?

Hi! My Simpson Esprit 750 washing machine won't click over to the next stage in the cycle. All of the stages work if you turn the dial manually so I am wondering if it may be the timer that needs replacing? I can't hear it in operation. Thanks.

Wires on motherboard, which way around do the blue and brown wires go to the water level switch? Simpson 22s750 washing machine

There are more than one model of the 22s750, you need to give the full model number. All of the 22s750 models I have seen have wires on plugs. The plug goes in to the water level switch and the other end has a plug that goes on to the circuit board. Do you have seperate wires or have you pulled them out of the plug. Give the full details if you want help.

Read your operating owners manual or if you don't have one then do a Google search for "Simpson SWT802 operating manual" The number of beeps and flashes tell you which fault it is.

Hi my simpson esprit 550 has suddenly stopped spinning,does everything else fine,any suggestions wod b much appreciated,thanku

Has it pumped out? It wont spin if still full of water. Check for blockages etc in hoses and the pump. If its pumping out, there could be a problem with the brake release or it may be the lid switch. It wont spin if the machine thinks the lid is open. Older 550,s had a switch that was operated by a lug that stuck out of the back of the lid, newer ones have a magnetic switch under the top of the machine.

Simpson ezi sensor 8.0 kg won't spin lid lock flashes and alarms

To solve the beeping and lid lock light flashing and the machine not doing a spin dry. Do the following.
I have a SIMPSON EZI SENSOR 8Kg top loader. This is what I did.
WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE. switch the power off and unplug the machine.
DO NOT do this if you are not familiar with working with high voltages.

To get access to the lid lock switch,
1. Remove 2 screws at the rear of the washer.
2. Remove 2 screws at the front of the machine located under the lid and covered by small round plastic plugs.
The top cover can now be raised gently from the front.
3. Remove the 2 screws that hold the lid switch.
4. Remove the clear plastic cover from the lid switch.
5. DANGER HIGH VOLTAGE ( Verify that power is off)
6. Find 2 blue wires these go to a magnetic reed switch (25mm long 3mm Diameter).
Cut the blue wires and discard the reed switch. insulate the ends of the blue wires and push them back into the track in different directions so there is no possibility that they can make contact with each other.
7. Find 2 white wires these go to a set of contacts that are mechanically closed by the solenoid.
8. Pull out the contacts and the 2 white wires.
9. Cut the white wires at the contacts, strip 5mm of plastic off the wires and twist them together, The wires will have corrosion, clean them with sand paper, they must make good contact. I recommend that you solder them together.
10. Insulate them and push them back into the track.
11.Reassemble starting with fitting the clear plastic cover.
Your good to go BUT BUT BUT,

The Lid safety protecting during the spin dry cycle will no longer function,
So don't do this if you need the safety of the lid closed during the spin cycle.

Remove 2 screws at the back of the machine

Simpson eziset 800 clothes tangle when washing

If you can use a lollipop stick to operate the lid switch while you leave the lid open, you will be able to observe if the agitator is going smoothly back and forth EVENLY or not. If it is tending to turn just one way....this will tangle the clothing like mad!
If this is the problem it could be the switching module or capacitor that needs replacing.
