    same problem!

    Same problem - on various cycles, stops and flashes spin speed 0 &100 which according to manual means drain problem (ie drain pump or pressure sensor or blocked drain).

    Previously removed pump when loud screeching noise occurred - found pins in filter-maybe held impeller?. Noise now stopped but maybe pump is faulty.

Yeah. This is a pump problem. Our machine first did this about 3 months ago. I took the filter plug out and removed about 10 coins from around the pump impeller area! I removed the pump and dismantled it. Unfortunately water was getting in past the seal on the pump spindle. I cleaned it all out and reassembled it. Worked fine till a couple of weeks ago. It has worn out the spindle "bearings" and because of the loose play it gets stuck, intermittently. If you are by the machine when the drain cycle starts , you can give the filter housing a few bangs(take off the circular cover) . The pump will start up .It makes a grumbly sound, as it is knackered. But once started will generally keep going.The answer however is a new pump. And probably a pact with everyone in your household to be more careful not to leave stuff in the clothes you put in the machine. Our washer has got through 2 mobile phones. a packet of bradding nails, a lot of cash, both coins and notes.Various other stuff that i wont mention! The pump gets very hot when it is trying to turn but cant because of debris on the impeller. This will lead to the pump failing after a time.

Same problem, flashing 0,100.
Simple solution:
disconnected the machine from the mains, water and waste.
raised the machine on blocks.
disconnected all of the rubber sump and drain hoses.
Cleaned out all the built up fluff and rubbish from the hoses.
reconnected everything
turned on
Sweet as a nut!

Hi

As originator of this problem, (Creina) my husband finally fixed problem by replacing pump motor. It now works perfectly every time.
The issue was the pump intermittently would not start mid cycle (always pumped at start but would not restart later -sometimes worked, sometimes didn't). Obtained a general purpose motor of similar design for 60% of genuine spare part. Starts 100% of time.

Could mean the washer is having trouble draining. Might be something stuck in the pipe to the filter/drain pump. Or something stuck in the filter or the pump. Or something blocking the drain pipe.

Mine was doing the same specially with towels over loaded too heavy. I took the little plug out of the bottom which seemed to release a pocket of air and now works.

Hoover hpe 236. water not draining, stops mid cycle, lights flash


Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Hope this is of some help to you.

My BWD 129 washer dryer is not spinning or draining


I have a similar problem - washer wouldn't spin or drain. The problem with my Kenmore 90 series is that the lid switch needs to be replaced. It's a safety feature. During normal operation when the washer is spinning or draining - and you open the lid - the lid switch sensor knows that the lid is opened and then "stops" the machine. A new lid switch needs to be installed. I have picked up the part, but am still trying to figure out "how" to get inside of the washer. The only difference between what you describe, and my problem, is that there is no "unusual" noise coming from the machine. Hope this helps lead you in a good direction. Another good site is Bob Villa's site.

Soon as i set cycle and swich on door light flashes open


hi,
The cycle doesn't advance
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.

Thanks for your question.

Whirlpool Washing Machine AWM 029 is not draining


Hi.
I assume you have checked to see if the pump is working,
Select drain and spin, if water does not go away, then you have a pump problem, which will stop the programme completing.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks

Whirlpool AWM8121 stops working mid cycle. Bottom two lights flashing on spin speeds.


Fault code 3 = Drain failure or not detecting empty drum.

Check pressure switch, blocked drain, drain pump.
