It appears your timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Beko WMP652W washing machine will start cycle but get stuck at end of wash, doesnt go onto rinse or spin any help please?


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
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.

VBXR1090B WASHER DOESNT SPIN BUT WILL PUT RINSE WATER INTO WASH TUB


if the machine basically stops after the wash cycle, but prior to the rinse/spin cycle and won't do anything, yet when you move the timer into the rinse cycle it will fill with water as per normal, and again when it hits spin it stops.. then you have a bad lid switch, the lid switch can be accessed by sliding a putty knife between the top and front of the unit about 2 or 3 inches in from the corners and pushing in, there are hidden spring releases there that will allow you to pull the top of the front panel out, then lift if off its supports on the bottom, the top of the unit that has the lid switch can be raised by removing several screws from the brackets of the top. the part number for the lid switch is WH12X1043 $16 - $29..
good luck, have fun.

It wont spin


Your washer has a lid switch.97a908d.jpg If the switch is broken the washer will not spin. The pump is mounted on the motor.c5ccc2f.jpg
In the wash cycle the pumps turns counterclockwise. In the spin cycle the pump turns clockwise, forcing the water out of the machine. So if that lidswitch is dead then she won't pump OR spin. This video shows how to get into your machine and the next one shows how to replace the lid switch

Fws445rf1 washer didnt stop filling and flooded my apt and it doesnt aggitate when it is washing,the whole thing just spins inside instead of moving back and forth,what are the most likely reasons for...


if it's a top-loader, then the water level sensor is probably failed! if an older machine- there's a plastic tube (which you can't see from the outside) that measures the column of water in the tub of your machine, and triggers the agitate and spin, and rinse cycles of your machine.
when it's in wash cycle the water level is lower, then it spins and drains and the rinse cycle pumps in more water (makes sense!), then drains & spins, then re-rinses at the same water level. your water level sensor is defective, probably. allowing it to over-fill.
it detects the water level as 'spin' and doesn't agitate!
my theory- no guaranty! if it's old get a new washer or a good used one! this is not a problem i've encountered, just a guess. good luck!

Try to Open the safety compartment using a screwdriver under the wash machine in the front.
Then open the big white knodb this will cause the wate to drain out which is fine.
Then clean this out. Usually you will find coins and stuff here from years of operations from pockets. clear these out and your problem maybe fixed. worked for us

Indesit Washing Machine not proceedding with the cycle programme after filling with water.


Cant understand how the machine will revolve on the 'spin cycle' & yet you can hear the motor on the 'wash cycle' but yet it doesnt revolve!!
Nomally if the water fills, & the tub revolves without the programmer advancing, its because the heater is not working. ie faulty thermostat, heat element, or maybe a wire burned off in the 'heater circuit'. Check if you have 240 volts at both ends of the heat element, with a meter or 240 volt bulb
                         !! BE CAREFUL OF 240VOLTS!!
