Skipping wash cycle


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Lid Switch Assembly

If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly

Water Inlet Valve

If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

Main Control Board

If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.

My mastermind 708 dosen't spin after wash cycle.It spins fine in the wash cycle but dosen't drain water or spin in the spin cycle.Pease help


Your empty pump filter is blocked with debris. If it can't evacuate all the water then it wont allow the spin cycle to start. Locate the filter (probably behind a little door at the botton of the front of the machine). Remove, clean and remove the debris, re-fit and all will be well
