It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

SOURCE: Same problem...water won't shut off but drains in the spin cycle.

Hello my fellow Mountaineer. I think your problem is most likely being caused by a defective water level switch. This switch senses the water level in the tub and shuts off the water. It's usually a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases and when the pressure reaches a certain level it signals the switch to shut the water off and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. Clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the switch. Hope this helped. GO MOUNTAINEERS!

I would guess that your pump has gone south as the machine needs the full power of the pump to evacuate the water from the tub. It just could be that the pump has gotten stopped up by many strands of lint washed out of the clothes. Most likely your pressure filter that keeps these strands from going into your pump has clogged and no longer lets the water pass. You are going to have to either take the filter apart and clean it or replace it with a new one. Replacing it is probably the cheapest as far as time is concerned. If you turn the machine over on a side, then you can discover the filter is a round plastic container about 6in in dia. and two small hoses connect to it with tensioned ring clips. To take it apart, you have to remove 3 or 4 compression clips around the rim pointed in toward the center. It also could be made of one piece and you really have to replace. Test it to see if you can force water through it.

Why is my washer letting water escape at drain hose when filling but stops when it starts to agitate


highly normal for top loader model washers of the old age since it is relative to the level of water being placed into the wash basket of the washer and only drains as the drain pump is being used

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer fills but will not do anything else


1. Remove the drain hose from the drain and try to drain the water from the washer. To do this plug the washer back in and attempt another drain cycle. If water does not come out of the drain hose then you now know that the plumbing is in good working order. 2. Place the drain hose back into the drain and remove the washers cabinet.
3. You will now be able to see the pump and it should have two hoses attached to it.
4. Disconnect the hose coming from the basket. If water comes out you will know that nothing is clogging the basket.
5. If both of these tests come out good you now know that the problem is the pump.
6. Make sure you write down all relevant information such as the washing machine model and serial number.
7. Head to your local hardware store and buy a pump (they typically run about $15.00).
8. Remove the old pump and install the new one (make sure the washing machine is turned off and unplugged).
9. Test it. Let it run through a cycle to make sure everything is installed and working properly.
10. If it is still broken call a repairman or ask a handy friend to check it out for you.

Kenmore Mod 110 24632300 won't drain


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110+24632300

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

I'm assuming that it will spin.

See the section for the Pump, Motor and gearcase and the basket and tub assembly's

I'd pull the cabinet in order to get to the hoses going to and from the pump first.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131

If the hoses are fine, check the shaft from the motor to the pump and check inside the pump to make sure the inlet and outlet aren't blocked.

As an aside, see the following Whirlpool Service Manual for top load direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

The washer want drain


Hi, the problem is either your pump or your hoses. this an easy fix. all you need is a screwdriver and a bucket to catch water. 1st unplug the machine and remove the drain hose from the drain. then try to drain the water from the washer by plugging it back in and setting the washer to drain. if no water comes out of your drain hose then you know your plumbing is ok. next put the drain hose back in the drain and take the cabinet of your washer. you will see your pump with 2 hoses connecting to it. one hose connects to the basket and the other to the drain. disconnect the hose coming from the basket and if water comes out then you know the basket is not blocked with any article of clothing. if both check out ok your problem would be the pump. write down the model and serial number to your washer and buy a pump. Thanks! mannu_rakesh

New inglis washer expells water when fills


seems like no one wants to send you any love Richard. Well fear not, if you haven't figured this out yet, I'll do what I can. It seems to me that you have the drain hose lower than the top of the wash basket or a hole in that hose. If the drain hose is too low, the water will run out of the machine due to low center of gravity. Ideally, 6" above the level of the tub is sufficient. If there is a hole in that hose, replacement is pretty straight forward.

Maytag washer trouble


If water is going into basket and just not filling up, make sure the end of the drain hose is terminated higher than the basket or the water will run out just as fast as it fills.
If no water coming in at all, the inlet/mixing valve may be bad.
