Question about Washing Machines
The washing machine fills water and then empty without running a washcycle. The timer initially shows two hours something and then afteraround 5 minutes it empty the water and the small screen shows ''end''.
Any help would be appreciated
Without more info, brand, model, age, etc. I will still try and help you. If you wish to provide more details than I can give you a better help description. With the info you have provided I can only give you the most common oprobable causes.
The machine will fill and discharge but the drum won't turn.
Most motors on washing machines today are fitted with carbon brushes. The carbon brush is the most common reason for failure of motor action. Check carbon brush for wear and replace if necessary. The drive belt may have come off the pulley. Check and if necessary replace. The bearings may have gone out in the drum - causing the belt to have come off. Check and replace bearings. Component failure in order:- 1. Belt 2.carbon brushes. 3. motor. 4. timer. 5. lid switch, selector switch, module. (depends on age and brand),
Finally, Perhaps something is caught in the trap at the bottom. There may be a plug. If not than removal is the only option. Check for lodged clothing items, or excessive lint build up. One thing I would do before removing the trap is make sure that all the water has drained from the machine - It you don't it will flood the floor. Check for lodged clothing or excessive lint build up.
