If it is out of balance it will automatically return to a wash cycle to try and redistribute the clothes more evenly. Maybe the out of balance switch is faulty. More likely though is a faulty control board. If that then get a new washing machine. That model is over 20 years old. Not worth spending money on it.

  • Plug your washing machine back in, and after 30 seconds, push the "Pause/Cancel/Stop" button two times. Choose a wash cycle.

  • Press the "Start" button until the wash cycle begins to ensure that the washing machine is functioning properly

    When the WP model WTW6600SW0 completes the wash cycle the clothes are still soaking wet. We have been running the clothes through another spin cycle, sometimes a second spin cycle to try to get the water...

    You need to access your fault codes...pick any button but start or cancel and do the diagnostic test.
    Press and hold for 4 seconds/release for 4 seconds and repeat this sequence till all the lights come on.
    Press that same button to toggle thru the 5 most recent faults.
    Post the fault codes back to me here.

    My hoover galaxy washing machine stops when clothes are not balanced properly.i have to even out the clothes then start the machine.if the clothes are balanced it finishes its cycle.if not the machine...


    It is normal for the drum to sway excessively and hit the balance switch if the load is not evenly distributed around the drum or if you have excess cloths.

    Once the balance switch is trigerred, you can reset by openning and closing the door. It is a safety mechanism which stops the spin cycle if the drum sways excessively.

    If this tends to happen often, then you need to make sure the machine is properly balanced and not leaning too much to the back.

    Also the drum suspension rods do tend to wear out over time and loose their firmness, causing the drum to sway excessively. You can check this by opening the lid. Pushing down and from side to side onto the agitator, and seeing if their is a firm bound on the drum. Also making sure the drum returns to centre position. If the suspension springs feel loose and wayward, then they will need replacement.

    The "PF" error code indicates a power failure to the dryer. To clear the error code, press Stop/Cancel.
    If the Stop/Cancel button does not clear the problem you will need to replace the control board on the dryer. The part number for the control board is 3976611, in case you need it.

    Ob code = out off balance

    cl code =
    If the door is securely closed & the CL error code appears, I would recommend checking the door lock switch & wiring harness to the door lock switch. Other possibility; control board.
