Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Water would not shut off and flooded garage? When do you know if your dial to start machine is broke?

I purchased my washer and dryer in 2000. I have never had any problems until a couple days ago. I started a load and went inside. When I came out later, my garage was flooded. I wasn't sure if it was my washer or water heater. When I looked inside my washer, it was still full of water. I tried to put it on another cycle, but that did not work either. You could not hear the clicking on the dial and it wasn't moving? Please help. Thank you. Gale

Possible that the program timer controller has failed . Also the inlet valve or the seal was faulty to release water to overflow due to faulty action of the timer. Check cost of timer with cost of new machine and decide.

Does the water stop when you push the timer in or are you having to shut the spigots off?? If it stops when the timer is pushed in then you have a problem with the pressure switch. There are quite a few tricks to axcessing your machine's components but if you are handy ill attemt to help.

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine makes grinding noise

Hello Friend, Your solution is a real quick fix. The problem you are having is very common, your motor coupling has broken and that is what's making the grinding sound, also in this condition it will always pump out the water. Go to your local appliance parts store and purchase a new motor coupler, your cost should be under $25. It's very simple to remove old and install new coupler. First remove two screws from control panel and tilt control panel backwords exposing area under panel. You will see a metal clip on each side of cabinet under panel. Remove these clips, and unplug wires from plug in on cabinet. Remove cabinet by lifting up in back and tilting forward. Once removed you will see the innerworkings of your washer. Lay washer on it's back and remove the two spring clips that hold water pump in place and remove water pump. Leave water pump hooked up just move to side out of your way. Then you will remove the two screws that hold the motor clips in place and just snap the motor clips off. Be sure to unplug the wire harness plug from the motor. Just simply lift the motor straight up and off of the transmission. There you will see the motor coupler broken and to replace, just pry old one off transmission and motor with large flat head screwdriver. You will notice that one half of coupler is attached to the motor and the other to transmission. In the coupler kit you will receive both pieces and the rubber center connector. Just replace all the old with all the new and your problem will be solved. Happy to help, Tim.

Water leak at the front door


It sounds like either some debris has gotten under one of the diaphragms of the water valve, or one of the diaphragms is hanging up. It is best to replace the water valve to avoid a possible flooding situation. I always recommend to my clients that they shut off the taps when they are finished for the day and release the pressure on the hoses by starting the machine on a warm fill for a couple of seconds. This will protect your home from a flood due to a burst hose while you are away.

Water not shutting off to begin wash cycle flooded room


Probably one of the water cut off solenoids not shutting off.
Do you use both hot AND cold water?
Try using only cold water first. If that works, maybe hot water solenoid is faulty.
Next, connect cold water to the HOT inlet, and try it again. This means you have now tried each of the solenoids, and maybe identified which one is faulty (assuming thats the problem!). If water wont cut off after trying this, the problem will be with whatever level sensing device it has, but I am not familiar with the model you have, so cant help there. Good luck.

OVERFILLED AND FLOODED HOUSE


1 of two problems happened.
1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating.
2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.

Kenmore 80 series overflow


Ok, it sounds either your hose from the water level pressure switch has come off or broke, or the pressure switch itself is bad.

Check the pressure switch hose first.

My tubing came loose and I just duct taped it back on and it works perfectly.

You would need to open your console as shown here:

Pull forward and up on the console and you can hinge it open and hanging from the hinges.

Here is your water level pressure switch:
