Sounds like the capacitor in the motor may be bad and you should replace the motor assm.

Sometimes water won't flow on certain timer settings. And sometimes starts, then stops.


i would go heavy on the deoxit D5

i think your timer control switch
has carbonized contacts...

so perhaps the contactors are blasted a bit

either this or look for a new program control

Washing machine makes clicking noise after filling up and wont spin. Kepps on clicking until i force shutdown, which then drains the water away.


hi, the problem you have is the motor carbons (brushes) have worn down ( which is natural if machine is used every day ). the machine fills up with water but there is no motor action. the clicking noise you are hearing is the relay on the pcb sending a signal to the motor to turn, but with the carbons worn, there is no motor action. Easy enough to replace them. UNPLUG machine before any repairs are carried out.

Whirlpool washer will occasionally be filling with water and pumping water out, problem will last until i turn timer knob to next action, after turning timer to "sweet spot" washing machine will...


These timers are normally sealed units (crimped and pressed sheet metal) and replaced as a unit.
If you could open one up, you'd find
that the contacts causing the intermittent problem are burnt from arcing. All washing machine timers
will eventually get this problem with enough use. As an electrician, you'll recognize that all switches
(washing machine timers are a series of switches oriented around a slow (timer) motor) are rated
for a given number of make/break cycles. Washing machine timer contacts are no different.
If you could actually "shine up" the offending pair of burnt contacts, another pair would soon
show the same symptoms, since all the contacts in your timer have endured the same number of
make/break cycles.

2 problems 1st is the washer continues to fill with water when i put in a new load second is it wont spin


If the water keeps filling without cutting off, you either have a faulty inlet solenoide or your pressure hose and or pressure switch needs checking.

To isolate the acutal problem, start the machine on a new cycle. Change the water level to minimum or low before you start. Let the machine fill up. Keep checking the water intake as it fill up. Once the water level goes over the half way mark in your tank, if the machine starts its wash action then your pressure hose and switch are o.k. as they have signalled to the timer that the water level selected, has been reached.

However if the machine keeps filling up even though the wash action has started, then you have a faulty inlet solenoide/valve. Turn off water at the tap and get the valve replaced.

My frigidaire top loader fills with water at the beginning of the wash...then nothing. it just sits there full of water.


Hi, could be your timer motor, timer or water level switch, first push timer knob in and manually advance to wash or spin cycle (program) then pull knob, see if machine operates, let me know, then i can tell you exactly what's problem.also advance timer, to spin cycle (program) machine should pump out water, or you can lower drain hose into bucket and empty machine, you should empty machine and try again, let me know what happened, we can solved this together. good luck.

FILLS WTANK WITH WATER AND DRAINS BUT DOES NOT AGITATE NOR SPINS


Hi. your timer assembly is faulty. it is not initiating the spin and proper wash cycle due to this malfunction. the timer is responsible for the actions and commands. if its defective, it will not carry out the initiations correctly.

Problem with a indest wil143s


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.

If your washer fills but the timer cycle doesn't advance-replace the timer. If your washer fills the time cycle advance, and still not agitating your agitator is at fault.
