I just had a similar problem with my GE washer, mod # WPRB9110D1WW.  I had 2 different GE service men come out - the 1st  one was no help, said to unplug the washer for 5 minutes to reset the electronic controls - worked 1 time doing this.  The 2nd service man came out, told him it would stick in the rinse cycle and not spin, also had short fills of water.  He immediately popped off the front of the washer (insert a putty knife in 2 locations at the top), and showed me there was a plugged up pressure switch tube (clear plastic) located on the lower left side of the tub; he pulled the tube off the connector to the switch, cleaned it out with a small screw driver, reattached it, and it has worked fine ever since then.  It took all of 5 minutes to fix it.  He suggested washing some rags with bleach every month or so, said the bleach kills the bacteria build up that causes the stopped up tube.  This service man told me, a lot off people replace the electronic control panel needlessly for this problem, and waste their money.  I don't know that this is you fix for your proble, but it's something easy to do.  Hope this helps!

    I have this exact GE model and the same issue occured. I followed your instructions ( cleaning out the pressure switch tube which was clogged) and it fixed my machine perfectly! This saved me probably ~ $200.00. 5 minute job maximum. Great posting and many thanks!!!!

I was having problems with overflow so I went to this web site to figure out how to open up my washer to look around inside it. I read the article above and it was very helpful.I unplugged the washer and then, I figured out how to open it up. I looked at that tube and it was clogged. That is an air pressure tube, from what i could figure out. The pressure of the water in the tank forces air through the tube to a switch which tells the pump to stop pumping water. If the tube is clogged the air cant get thru and the water overflows the washing machine to the floor. I took a skewer and ran it through the tube careful not to penetrate the tube, and then a bread tie through the other end that attaches to the tank. Always disconnect your power cord from the outlet box before fooling with any of this, you want to be able to say you fixed it.
Thanks cost 1954

My Kenmore he front load washer stopped at the rinse and spin cycle. I don't know the model but it only a few years old. It made a load noise before stopping. I attempted to get it going again wit


Kenmore front loader. stopped at rinse. First ck to see if you washer works at different settings if so its very possible its your timmer or what called the wig wag or solonoid this switches the machine to spin & rinse. A basic service call should resolve your problem.

Wash doesn't go through full cycle


I have a Maytag model A490 clothes washer. It works fine up to the rinse cycle and then shuts down. When it reaches this point it has become necessary to manually advance the dial a short ways whereupon it will fill with water and complete the rinse and spin cycles. This happens on both the regular and the permanent press cycles. What needs to be done to fix this problem?

Manually move the timer to the SPIN mode and turn it on.
If nothing happens, replace the lid switch.
With a model number I could be more specific.
