SOURCE: washer

The symptoms you describe are typical of a broken lid switch. The lid switch is located under the washer top on the right hand side. It is activated through a slot by a small plastic piece on the lid called a "lid strike". Make sure the lid strike is still installed and not broken. Make sure the lid switch itself is not loose, as well. There are two mounting screws along the washer tub opening that hold it in place. If the screws become loose the switch will not make contact with the lid strike when the lid is closed. If you need to replace the switch or lid strike, the parts are available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Top and Lid" heading on the next page. The lid switch is listed as item number 22 (part #3355806) and the lid strike is listed as item number 16 (part #358684). Both parts combined will cost you about $30. If you have further questions and/or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: the water wont drain or spin wf210 hotpoint

Hi I think your problem is that the filter is blocked, filter is located between drum and pump at the rear, clean that out and that should solve the problem.

SOURCE: Washing Machine is not draining in rinse cycle to go to spin cycl

you both seem to have bad lid switches. A bad lid switch will prevent draining and spinning.

SOURCE: Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

SOURCE: Whirlpool LSR6132EQ1 Washer - Doesn't Rinse

I'm having the same problem with mine, but it's staying hot instead of cold. I've been reading about it, and it could be a kink in one of the water hoses (simple fix). The filter where the water comes in at could be clogged. The water inlet valve could be bad (which I'm thinking this is what is wrong with mine). This post is old, but just in case someone else is looking for this info...

I have a Whirlpool LHA 5700 old school washer. It works great. It wash clothes with no problems. It just stop spinning the water out tub and clothes. The water drains as far as it can but that's it. W


Don't know the model but with the old basics with electric motor drive as a 1st step always check for broken wires to the motor as they flop around a fair bit and eventually break them or corrode them from water and washing detergents.

Washer stopped during spin cycle


Hello, try to checked the pump filter, and the pump is actually working. then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump works fine then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Thanks

Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.


that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:



I quote from : The cycle doesn't advance

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • Itmay be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills withwater, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinsewater. See There's no cold water.

    Does Not Rinse


    Check each temperature during initial wash fill. Set to hot water, is hot water coming out? Set to cold water, is cold water coming out? The rinse cycle is cold only. If cold water is not working machine will just stop at rinse.

    If cold water not working:
    Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still not working, replace valve.

    Washing machine stops at rinse cycle


    Sounds like a faulty lid switch. The switch will not allow this unit to drain/spin if the switch is faulty.
