SOURCE: Washing machine fills in the water but does not start the wash cycle

The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.

See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."

However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.

A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.

Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.

More likely you will have to replace the timer.

See again from Repairclinic:
"When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

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

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

  • You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

    Many thanks.

    SOURCE: miele 842 washing machine fault finding.

    The same has just happened to our machine. My good lady inadvertently put too much into the machine, which is a Miele Novo, and then she tried to spin the thing to drain the water.

    The upshot is:

    The machine fails to spin or turn even during a wash cycle.
    The Rinse light flashes.
    All other operations work, it drains, pumps water etc.

    psminkley sorry for hijacking your thread although this seems to be the same drama you are having.

    I have checked the belt, motor and brushes all appear to be ok although i will bow to your superior knowledge should you know what is wrong.

    Thanking you in anticipation

    SOURCE: my washing machine showing an OE error before end of cycle

    OE error is noyhing but an Outlet Error.. OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter. Check the hoses (drain hose) and the pump filter but if it didn't cure the problem then turn the thing upside down and strip the pump out of it check if anything is caught in the impellor.. if so remove it and everything will be fine..

    SOURCE: what does error 5 mean


    Error 5 means that there is a water inlet problem.

    Move the appliance, ensure that the water hose is not kinked or blocked, and check filter in water hose if installed.

    Check connected faucet and water pressure.

    If the inlet hose and pressure is OK, then the inlet valve and water pressure switch must be tested as one of the two parts is likely giving the error.

    How do i remove the top of a bush a146cdw

    Before calling an engineer, there could be too much water pressure causing the water to splash over the sides of the draw. Try and remove the draw and give the channels a clean out., there is usualy a clip that needs to be pressed either under the draw or inside it.

    Cant get Bush WM-1260TVEME washing machine to start a cycle off the button

    Check to see if the power is getting to the machine. If it ismake sure the door is closed firmly, there is a safety switch on the door. If none of these things work, you have adoor switch problem or a panel fuse out or a broken panel circuit. If you have the skills to open and troubleshoot than those are the things to look for.

    How do I open the door to my Bush a126q washing machine after a quick wash?

    Reset it back to the spin cycle and try to empty some more water out of it. It should release the door when it knows it is empty.

    Bush A126Q White and the ''end of programme'' light is staying on

    Sorry Jo, I think I may have mis-understood your explanation - is there actually a problem with the machine functioning properly or is it simply that the end of cycle light will not turn off?

    If it is the latter then simply turn the dial back to 0 before opening the door from the previous wash, this action tells the washing machine to reset itself as the drum is about to be emptied.

    I have the exact machine however as it is graded, it didn't come with any manuals, at the end of the wash I just figured thta this was what I needed to do.

    Its almost as if you need to double-declutch the washing machine - return the macine to 0 before selecting another cycle.
