    Thank you for this, is this the selector switch. It is a W113UK, the switch is easily accessible and I have found the parts available for about £20. Thank you again

You need to replace your timer, it controls the wash cycle. Depending on make and model they are relatively easy to replace and not to terribly expensive.

    Yes, the component that needs to be replaced sits inside the control console behind your cycle selector knob. You typically push it in or pull it out to start or stop the washer. Please be sure to unplug your washer before you start the replacement...not trying to insult your intelligence, you'd be surprised how common this mistake is...a truly "shocking" experience. :)

WASHING MACHINE stopped in mid-cycle


if it stops at the drain and spin cycle check the lid switch,open the lid,set the washer to spin cycle and pull out the timer knob,stick a screw driver into the hole where the strike from the lid goes into and push down,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push down on the switch in the hole then you have a bad lid switch but if your machine does run sometime it sounds like the switch will work if you push down on it,could be cracked where the screws go into it.

Kenmore 80 series top load washer. In the permanent press mode the machine will stop when it moves to the rinse mode. I can manually move the time past the midpoint of the cycle it will run for a minute...


So it will spin and drain when put in the spin cycle right? More than likely it is your timer if you have to keep manually setting. I would check on timer prices and go from there.

Hoover 700LB Stops at the wash during the wash cycle keeps clicking then starts again at the spin cycle


It sounds like the timer is bad. Try another cycle like delicate, or normal, or heavy duty. If everything works on another cycle then it is probably your timer. If it doesn't work and you have the same problem, then it is probably an expensive fix. Best of luck

hiya
these machines will do this if the timer dial has been moved during a cycle, they have a memory chip on the main circuit board.

they also do this if the machine has a fault with the exception that they dont stop, the doorlock light flashes and the timer just keeps clicking.

try setting the timer to a dot on the settings then switching the power on, the doorlock light will flash a few times, turn off again select program then switch back on, machine should now be reset and work ok, if not then count the flashes of the doorlock light as this indicates a fault code.

hope this helps


please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

Have an Admiral AAV8000 that does not stop


Sounds like you have a mechanical failure and the timer keeps advancing because the cam contact for the timer motor has to be manually shut down. Your timer is part 21001929

Timer clicks arround and arround


My Belling integrated washing machine will not stop at the end of the cycle. My partner had accidently moved the dial during mid-cycle. We have tried to reset the machine by turning it off and then moving the dial around to the stop section of the dial. However when we turn it back on it waits for a while and then continues to click around with starting any cycle. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Indesit W123 s UK water overflows from the detergent draw


My machine clicked round, although I did not have the water overflow. I managed to unlock the pump filter, on the front of the machine under the lower panel. This was fiddly. I removed a coin. The machine worked again, but two cycles later starting clicking round the timer. I called an engineer - it worked when he was here, he checked the element and pump and said it was OK. When he had gone, it clicked round the timer again! He came again, and once again it worked perfectly when he was here. Eventually I checked the pump filter again, and removed another two coins. At the moment - it is working!
