    My washer has the same problem the door stays locked and it stops working

    I have watched the machine try and retry the spin cycle. It appears that if the load is too far out of balance it will never go into high speed. I find the only way around this is to open the unit a "unwind" the towels then try again. Most of the time this allows for a high speed spin. I have found this washer to be a lemon during the first year I have owned it. Have had GE out here at least six times. They even replaced the motor and drum shaft bearing due to a squealing noise in the spin cycle. They will be here again Monday because of the poor spinning situation. Will let you know if they find a fix.

    Does it ever get into a real good spin? Mine will sort of rinse but won't ever get a good spin cycle going and will finally try to fill and rinse while staying at 1 min. Never finished the cycle.

I had the same problem and here is what solved the issue.
In the front of the machine under the door is a panel. Take off the 3 screws holding panel on. You will see a white looking plug, this is your drain trap. Unscew it 3 or 4 times then pull it out and clean it. If the washer is not draining properly it will not go into a high spin or appear to not work properly. You may want to get something to catch the water that will come out when you open the drain trap.
Good Luck!

How can I clear locking mechanism?


Hi,

Only fix is to enter service mode and when you exit it should remove the stored code and allow you to restart unit. If not and you are certified you can call the Tech Line for more assistance. 1-800-662-3587. They will ask you for there account number before helping you. First enter service mode, allow auto test as it will test door locks, fill, drain, and spin functions. When you exit after this test it should allow you to restart the unit as normal. Good Luck

Washer stops during normal wash cycle for a minute or more, and then continues. Would replacing the timer fix it?


If it actually goes on and finishes the cycle and that really bothers you replace it. If not leave it alone and allow a little more time to complete its cycle. The lid switch only keeps the spin cycle from going with the top open.

Washer heavy duty cycle issue


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 model # 110.244222300, Won't automatically complete wash


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Following is a Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Initial thoughts are that the Timer is worn / broken.

Here is a description of how to gain access to the console on these washers where you may be able to test the timer. (See the Whirlpool service manual for testing)

Maytag neptune MLG2000AWW does not turn off at end of spin cycle


d sounds as if your having a timer issue here. not recognizing the end of cycle and entering a new one ( bad timer).. as far as time of unlocking this is normal, theres a wax motor holding the door shut for i believe 3 min's.. and the water sloshing sounds is also normal they use a "water filled" balance ring around the perimeter of tub to help with the overall balance of machine

This error code indicates that the door is not locking.
Is the washer door firmly shut?
The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it.
Were you washing a large load?
Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed.
fl_doorseal.jpg To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.

Kenmore Elite top load washer timer will not rotate by itself through the wash/rinse/spin cycles


Gkar06,
Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


You said, Each portion of the wash/rinse/spin cycle work correctly, but you have to manually move the timer to each cycle.

This tells us the timer is bad and needs service to replace it!
You will be fine, it is not a big job!

If you like you can try this first!

Like with an error code.
This can reset the system if it is electronic!
Unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breakerto cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
let me know how it works out.

How old is the appliance?

Let me know!
Please remember to enter a rating before you leave.
Thank You
