    Please reply the make and model number of this washer.

    Make sure the drain hose is not kinked, and that there is an air gap between the drain hose and the drain pipe at the wall.

If your washing is "not draining the water ad mid or end of the (rinse/spin cycle)", the typical problem for this complaint is your lid/door switch (most likely) or the water pump (likely).

In general, lid-switches run about $15 and the typical "working lid-switch" should have a "clicking" sound when opening and closing the door (not all models). The water pump can also be the problem, but from what you've described, I would look into your lid-switch first. Timers are very rare and relatively expensive in comparison to other washer components. Who told you the problem was the timer?

My washer isn't going through the cycles like it should by itself it jus keeps on dumping water into the tub until u go change it over to where it starts to wash the clothes and then when it gets to rinse...

If it has a mechanical timer that clicks when you turn it--it sounds like the timer is bad. They have a little clock type motor that makes them turn. If its a digital type display--the control board will probably need replaced. Make sure both hot and cold water works on fill because if it doesn't fill all the way it will never finish a cycle.

Water won't drain from to change pump.everything else works fine. nothing pluged.

Does water drain when washer goes from wash to rinse or is it just at the end after rinse. It could be a switch on the cycle timer not working if it doesn't pump out at all. If it doesn't pump out at only the end maybe one of the cams on the timer that makes the switch to dump water is loose or broke.

Whirlpool washer won't wash or spin or dump water

usually a broken lid switch if it fills with water and then nothing,set the timer on spin and pull out the timer,open the lid and stick a screw driver into the hole where the plastic acuator on the lid goes into the hole and push down easily and see if washer will run this is where the lid switch is and it's only a safety switch so when the lid is open the washer won't run,if not push up and down on the switch and listen for a clicking sound,no click switch is bad part number 285671,watch video

I have a frigidaire front load washer. When I start a new load it starts with a couple of seconds of water then stops. Does not go into a wash mode, the timer shows it's going thru the cycles but

Hello - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.

Washer immediately goes into wash cycle when filling with water on initial start.At the end of the spin cycle ,washer dumps water back in to drum.Also,it's not getting the detergent out of clothes. Maytag...

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. 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.
