Dial not turning

I have replaced the cold water inlet vlave so water is now coming in However the dial / cycle does not turn automatically We have to manually click through each sequence? If you listen close enough you can hear the machine clicking as if it trying to turn the dial This has become apparent since the front dial was removed from the machine, Could this have adjusted the setting???

In process of dial removal, the dial was somehow jarred to cause some disassembly of the dial...look at the dial body clasps carefully

Hoover six 1100 stops at certain points during the cycle until i turn the dial to skip to next part of cycle?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.
f the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.
If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.
If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

I have an ariston a1435 - when i turn the cycle dial on to any wash cycle nothing is happening - the start light is on and the door lock light is on - but nothing else


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Cold water is not filling machine when place on cold washer cycle


Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally. If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following. Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on. Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct. Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.

Won't Rinsing


Check for a cold water supply problem, since cold water is what is used in the rinse cycle. Check the water inlet valve (pay special attention to the cold water side). Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the water supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need replaced. Very sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

The machine works fine until it reaches the rinse cycle.


The buzzing sound is the cold water inlet valve is getting power but water is not able to enter. You need to have the valve replaced or make sure the cold water is turned on at the sink. Hope that helps, let me know.

No water going to feed machine


There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:

  • Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

There's no water at allIf there's no water at all, make these checks:

  • Is there water getting to the machine?


  • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?


  • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?


  • Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
