Normally the spraying is done with a timed sequence as it depends on the program choice. So if this is a hard wash the timing will be longer.
The pumping pressure will depend on the pressure pump and water input. If low you need to check for clogging of the pump. Also residual water in the machine is due to poor drain, fault in drain pump, dirt accumulation in drain filter. remove and clean.

SOURCE: Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.

Yes sir, a bad motor coupler could cause the machine not to spin. You did the right thing in checking out the lid switch and the pump first. It sounds as if the motor coupling is worn and may be slipping. I will attach a link to a video that may assist you. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Cycle has stopped 31 mins from end and has lit up check water. No blockage and this should be the drying cycle. Is this a repairable problem or not as it is old?


On many older machines, there was only one water pump. During the wash and rinse cycles, the pump would cause the water to spray the inside of the cabinet. At the end of the cycle a solenoid would open a valve and the pump would then cause the water to be sent to the drain. There are a couple of ways to check for this. Ordinarily, you would hear a knock or thump when the solenoid operates. Another way to tell is if you still have a lot of food particles during the rinse cycle - particles that should have been drained out at the end of the wash cycle.

Some solenoids were not particularly expensive and are fairly easy to replace. If you post your make and model number, I can get more information for you.

Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?


Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

How do you ascertain if its drain pump or faulty controller board causing a fault 37 on a gw612?


Read the answer in the link below first, but in your case it can also be a faulty or blocked diverter valve. If you are good with a multimeter check the resistance of the pump windings. It should read around 33 ohms. It is not uncommon for the pumps to cook themselves and you can smell and see the burned out motor. I hope this is of some help

Dish washer not washing dishes water coming in but the arms are not spinning am thinking the pump may be gone the model is omega dw501wa


Hello; this dishwasher has a pretty poor track record, but since you have it, I'd suggest the obvious solutions first. You only mention that the spray arms aren't spinning. If this is the ONLY problem, and the dishwasher empties properly, the problem has to lie in the spray arms, since the same pump that runs the sprays pumps the water out of the dishwasher.
If you have the manual for the machine, remove the sprays and check that they are clear of all debris (small pieces of bone, plastic, glass, food) that are usually removed when you rinse the dishes prior to putting them in the dishwasher. These small particles are blown into the spray holes when the sprays try to run, and block the holes. Often, they drop back into the spray arms when the pump is off, so they aren't visible on inspection. For this reason, smack the spray arm into the palm of your hand sharply, then shake the arm. If you hear rattling around inside the arm, it's debris. It's a little time consuming, but you need to get it out, and check for this problem regularly.
While the arms are off the fittings, close the dishwasher and start the cycle. Once it reaches the point where the sprays come on, if the pump IS working, and the debris screen on the food chopper is clear, you should hear the water gushing inside.
If you DON'T hear the water gushing, the next thing to check is the food chopper debris screen.
If all else fails, and the washer does NOT empty at the end of the cycles, you probably have a pump problem.
If that's the case, considering the history of these machines and the cost and labor involved in installing a new pump, you should consider getting a new, more reliable machine. Check Consumer Reports next time. (;<)....Good Luck!

Dishes are always dirty, maybe even dirtier after running dishwasher. has hot water, lower arm moves.


Check the outlet holes on both spray arms for clogs. If necessary, remove the spray arms, clean out the holes and empty out any debris inside the spray arms. Verify that the upper arm is turning also.

If the machine does not drain completely at the end of the cycle, the pump drain outlet is partially blocked and you are retaining dirty water for the next load.

You may have a chemistry problem - inferior soap, empty rinse agent dispenser, or extremely hard water.

Improper arrangement of the dishes can prevent some from being washed. Make sure no dish blocks the spray to another.

Intuitive eco Iw811 Rinse 1 no water coming thru!


the 1st rinse light is normally set to "spray rinse", this means the machine will pump out the water, spin at medium speed then pulse cold water into the machine, this occurs for about 2 mins, then the machine will spin out, and advance for the final rinse which is a deep rinse.

Dishwasher does not spray water


It sounds like your dishwasher is doing everything normal EXCEPT washing. The unit fills properly, the timer advances properly, the unit drains and goes through a rinse cycle, plus the water is heating. I would check your main wash pump for obstructions that may be clogging it, or if it is not running at all, you need to check the interconnecting wiring and/or something in the wash pump circuit that would prevent it from running. There should be a wiring diagram/tech sheet located behind the lower kick panel under the door. I hope this helps some. Good luck and let me know what you find.
