Question about Washing Machines
When the machine is finished with the rinse cycle sometimes it will get stuck. All the water will be gone from the tub but it continues to run and drain out of the machine into the drain, which if left unattended can be a huge waste of water. But if you advance the timer just slightly it will go into the spin cycle as it should. Could the timer be bad? Please help. I have a problem like that my machine gets stuck and continues to ad water and drain half way firstname.lastname@example.org
It appears your timer/controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
