Machine stalls no action timer continues

Our machine seems to stall and whilst the timer is saying how much time is left there is no action going on.  It is intermittent.  We canceled the cycle and managed to get it going again.  What could be the problems

It seems to me that you have something blocking your outlet pump.Many machines have a designated time to pump out water and if this time is to long machine will stop all action.Clean your pump and outlet hose If no help in this you can change to new pump.If this dont help post again and tell me when machine is stopping

Washer stalls mid cycle


In top load washers, if the machine goes through the cycles and then just stops at the spin cycle and leaves you with no noise and a tub full of water more than likely the lid switch is bad and not completing the circuit for cycle to continue. This is a safety precaution to prevent injury by reaching in the machine while at high speed spin. If the machine is getting to the spin cycle and still turning slowly but not draining the water, the pump is probably the culprit, either being locked up or in most cases something like a sock, etc. is stuck in it preventing it from turning. This is usually indicated by a humming sound during the spin/drain section with no water draining.In top load washers, if the machine goes through the cycles and then just stops at the spin cycle and leaves you with no noise and a tub full of water more than likely the lid switch is bad and not completing the circuit for cycle to continue. This is a safety precaution to prevent injury by reaching in the machine while at high speed spin. You can usually look and visually see the spot where the switch should be and if damaged. How to repair :
Chances are the lid switch is bad. Sometimes you can see the switch located on the left or right side of the top where the lid closes but sometimes its located under the heading. In either case the lid switch is attached to the cabinet. To remove the cabinet
1) Unplug the machine. 2) At the head, or control panel, find the two screws that hold it to the case. Some are on the left and right front lower corners of the panel, and some are vertical facing s on the rear left and right side. Also on some models they are in the front but you have to pull the end caps off the sides of the control panel. Further more in some of the newer models you have to take a thin paint scraper and slide under the left and right normers to press the clips in to release. 3) Remove the 2 screws and then pull the panel from the lower part of it towards you and roll it backwards. 4) Disconnect the lid switch connection in the the middle where the two grey wires and the green wire block connects to the body of the machine, usually near the middle under the panel. 5) with a flathead screwdriver pop out the two brass retainer clips on the right and left side. 6) Open the lid slightly where you can grab the case, not the tub, just the case, and pull forward and surprise!!! You just took the complete top, sides and front of the machine off.
7) get a jumper wire and find the block that you disconnected that wasn't attached to the caseand place the jumper where in the holes where the is a wire other than green, which is ground. What your doing is bypassing the lid switch. Now with jumper wire in place, plug the machine in, turn to the spin cycle and turn it on. If it works you juist verified the lid switch is bad.

Problem with Hotpoint WD64 Washer Dryer


this possibly a bad contact on the panel board, thats why the system malfunction by itself. better to check on the every switch contact and clean for any moisture on the board.

My machine is LG intello washer 7.5kg WD-1025FB the machine can start work, but after few minutes, it stopped and only can hear motor making noise. i turn of the switch start again, same as before: work...


Sounds like you may need new timer. They have contacts in side that control all fuctions of you machine if those contacts start failing or get burnt the machine will hit a certain spot in the timing and then it will stop or stall.

Machine stops at drain and doesnt add fabric softener


When you say stops at drain(ing), do you mean just before, just after, or in the middle of ? And, does it pause and then continue but fails to add softener; just never advances to the final spin and end of cyccle ?
The problem could be in the timer control, or overload sensor (if so equiped). Sometimes the water levelsensor could do this. I assume that this happens every time. The first thing to do is to jump-out the wire connections to the timer that tell the motor to operate for spin/drain. if the machine works as it should, then you know the timer is at fault. If the machine still pauses or stalls, then you need to follow throught on the other control items. Goodluck, Macgivor

Ok, this is a basic control fault within the logic chip set. you will need to replace this faulty control board/timer in this case.the replacement of the control/timer will fix this issue.

Ultima WF840 won't go from wash to rinse cycle


the pump is blocked, so the sensor detects that the machine has not emptied in the allocated time, so this will reset the time.... the pause is because it knows there is a probblem getting rid of water.

location: bottom right near the motor. ensure you tip the washer as far forward as you can so you can get a bucket under in order to prevent flooding.


hope this helps

Washing a comforter and machine stalls. Code says Door is open..it isn't and will not let me open it. What now?


The only Reset is unplugging waiting a few mins and plug it back in. If not perhaps the lid locks have failed.
