Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer keeps stopping and often won't empty

It fills, then stops. I either turn it on and off or move the dial forward a little and then it starts again. I keep doing that  and occasionally it eventually finishes. But lately it won't start again to empty. If I empty the machine (via the filter opening at the bottom, right corner) it will usually start again by itself. I can't really afford a new washer, but then is it worth having it repaired? Is there anything I (unskilled in these matters) can do. Thanks in advance

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

The washer turns on, fills with water and starts to agitate...then never stops. It just keeps agitating till I turn off switch. The switch/dial never seems to move.


Its seems to be the complaint of the board. You can locate it beneath the unit but those things are so complicated and can be repaired only by a professional. Sometimes it may be needed to replace it, but in that case, it will be expensive.

Will not turn on . started filled with water then shut off and will not power up now. it still has water in machine this washer is a little over one year old .


Sounds like the timer motor didnt engage. Soon as the fill switch activates, when its full, the timer motor advances forward and starts the cycle. Since the water stops when full. Then part of the switch is working. The one that is nc at same time the one that is no engages. Try advancing the dial couple clicks into the cyckle then pull back out.

Washing machine won't complete cycle


If it is a hot and cold fill washer, yes, then it could be a hot water problem related to the valve, or the water supply., if it is cold fill only, then the problem is elsewhere.

Timer clicks arround and arround


My Belling integrated washing machine will not stop at the end of the cycle. My partner had accidently moved the dial during mid-cycle. We have tried to reset the machine by turning it off and then moving the dial around to the stop section of the dial. However when we turn it back on it waits for a while and then continues to click around with starting any cycle. Can anyone help? Thanks.
