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.

If it fills with water but won't wash, is it the timer


hi mary,i just wrote and asked you for the model number,if this is a regular top load washer it could be the timer as long as you don't hear the motor running,if you do hear the motor running you could have a broken motor coupling because the drain pump is on the motor shaft so it will drain,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K1KHEogf3c
if you don't hear the motor it could be the timer,when it should agitate try tapping on the timer and see if it works,it has points in it and they can get stuck together or burn out and have no contact like you're saying but it's just a guess without seeing it but if the timer is advancing through with no agitation it could be the timer,did you try any other cycles

It wont complete cycle and empty the water just hums for a while and then turns its self off


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, 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.

When the water has reached it's proper level, the hot water turns off, but the cold water keeps filling until the water overflows the basket


Try this. With the wash tub empty, start to fill with water. Without turning washer off, unplug the washer from wall.

If water filling stops (hot and cold), then you are looking at a bad timer assembly. Replacement isn't that hard, parts can be difficult to find though.

If water continues to fill, your valve body / solenoid assembly is likely full of lime-scale. Easily replaced.

> Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water

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.

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.
