SOURCE: Water keeps going and going and going!

the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.

From the closed position lift the lid of the washer about 2'' and listen for a distinct click. Then set lid back down and should hear another click just before it closes. The wire form hinge on left side of lid actuates the lid switch. Is it broken? Let me know.

Washer stops during rinse cycle and beeps at me


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly 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
Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly 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.
Water Inlet Valve 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.

Main Control Board If 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.

Timer If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.

Kenmore Elite Washer Stopped mid-cycle. Only hums when turning on


You will have to drain it, those units use a belt to drive the transmission. It may have come off the pulleys or broken in half. If you can get a large wet and dry vacuum, that would make it easier to drain. Hook the vacuum to the drain hose and remove the water.

Washing machine stops on rinse on all cycles


this could be a timer problem, or the cold water may be shut off.....if it is advancing to the rinse point but not filling, then there may be a problem with the fill valve also. You may want to check the lid switch too, just to be sure it is making contact.From what you are describing it sounds like the problem with your washer could either be the lid switch or no cold water. However there are a number of other possibilities. I would recommend checking the lid switch first. Open the lid & you should see the lid switch actuator mounted on the lid. This is the probe that pushes in on the lid switch as you close the washer lid. Next you can check the lid switch. The lid switch is hidden under the top of the washer. You will see a small opening where the plunger comes down at & activates the lid switch. You should hear the switch click as the lid is being closed. You can also use a small non-metallic probe to push in on the lid switch. If the lid switch is not responding, you will need to replace the lid switch.Next you will need to check & make sure the cold water is turned on. You may want to turn the water off & take the cold water fill hose off of the back of the washer. Use a bucket & turn the water back on to check the incoming water pressure. If the water pressure checks good & the washer is not filling for rinse, you will need to replace the water valve.If you have good cold water supply & the lid switch checks okay you will need to access the inside of the machine to make more checks. Be sure to disconnect electrical power before attempting any repairs. Please resubmit your question if you need further assistance.Good Luck

Good Morning Macmarkus, I was told you posted a solution to my problem on 08 SEP 2011, I did not see it. Here is my problem: My original question has not been answered, I have a GE top load washer,...


Hi Ron,

Just happened tocome accross this post randomly...I did indeed reply to your post on a previous day. Are you not able to continue with thast post ? I'm not clear on the reason, though it doesn't matter, just pick up from there.

The issue with your washer has all the symptoms of a faulty lid switch is what I had posted previously, but I wasn't sure at what stage you had reached in diagnosis.

Here's the explaination in the teardown/service manual...If the lid switch Is open, agitation and spin will not occur, but the washer will continue to count down, fill with water and drain at the appropriate times in the cycle...sounds like a perfect summary of your symptoms.

I realize the type of lid switch these units use or as you called it a magnetic sensor (sometimes referred to as a "reid switch" aka fancy word for magnet) as shown here...

macmarkus_966.jpg
If you do not have motor action present at anytime no matter where the cycle is, I'd be suspicious of the lid switch. The other component failing which can manifest in this manner is the 10 amp fuse on the neutral line...example:

macmarkus_967.jpg
As you can see there are a couple possible scenario's that may prevent the motor from operating, but I'd start with the fuse and lid switch...my money is on the fuse (I shouldn't gamble...I see too many lid switches too, lol)

Let me know what results and that will at least get us moving forward again. Good luck. I also have the service manual as I mentioned. If you post your email address when you reply Ron, I'll fire it off to you.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

P.S.

Maybe check your other post as I will add this info there as well to see if it is working. I know there have been some "glitches" here recently at FixYa. I apologoze for that.

The washer turns on and fills up but then stops. If you bang the lid a few times it will usually continue on the cycle and be fine. You have to repeat the lid banging for every load though. The lid...


Sounds like the switch that the lid presses is either broken or has been knocked loose.

Or the little plastic or metal "switch actuator" (the little poker) that presses the switch has broken.

I believe the washer thinks the lid is open because it will fill up but wont't wash until it knows the lid is shut.

When it gets to Spin cycle, stops and does not pump out water


This switch is a safety switch and needs to be working properly.

The condition that you describe sounds like the switch is not indicating the lid is closed...so no spin.

Also, check that both hot and cold fill hoses are on, <<Be sure.

Kenmore Washing Machine fills with water then just stops


The symptoms you describe are typical of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually located on the right hand side under the cabinet. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the right side of the wash tub opening. Make sure the lid strike is still on the lid and intact, first. Then, check the mounting screws that hold the lid switch in place (two screws along the tub rim on the right hand side). Often all that is required is to tighten up the mounting screws and this will realign the lid switch where it can be properly activated by the lid strike. If the lid switch is broken, you can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Top and Cabinet" heading for item number 11 for the lid switch and item number 20 for the lid strike (if needed). If you do not wish to order online, take the part numbers provided by Sears and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. These are common parts that most will carry in their store inventory. The following link explains how to replace the switch:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

This is a very inexpensive repair that you can easily accomplish on your own. I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

PS This is a common problem experienced by this line of washing machines. To prevent future failures, do not slam the washer lid or place anything heavy on the lid. Repeatedly slamming the lid to get it to work, or manipulating the timer can also cause more potential problems.
