Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Remove drawer and thoroughly clean, you must have a blockage in it for the water to remain.
Make sure that you clean every piece of it, taking all the components out.

SOURCE: water running out when washing machine is filling?

Hi jojolevaokah

8b08830.jpg
Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.

SOURCE: my washing machine makes a loud banging noise wen

Form the front of washer, spin drum by hand, and if it fees rough, or is rumbling, then the main drum bearings are worn.
If no noise from drum, then could be worn shockers, or the washer is not properly levelled, or concrete balance weight, I'm afraid it is a process of elmination.
Hope this helps.

troubleshooting advice.
Washing-machine-repairs - The washing-machine fills with water but does not start the washing cycle

1. The water level sensor or float switch may be faulty. If the unit does not sense that the water is at the right level nothing will happen.

2. When the water filling rate appears very slow, the inlet water filters may be clogged. Although not that common the inlet solenoid valve can jam and only partially lift.
3. The cycle timer or program circuit board may be faulty


http://www.washingmachinerepair.info/the_enquiry.html
Shows how it should operate.
There is a thermal switch inside the pump and this corrodes even after a year. If the filter is blocked the the pump has to work harder and so heats up (a lot). This switch is prone to staying open once it trips out.

SOLUTION
Isolate machine from mains and water supply.
Empty machine with drain hose and bucket at floor level.
Clean Filter out.
Turn machine on its side.
Remove electrical connections from pump.
Remove 3 screws holding pump (small leakage so get a towel).
Remove PUMP from machine. (be observant now)
Remove plastic cover over coil on pump.(its easy)
Thermal switch is soldered between 2 of the now 3 visible terminals. about 7mm x 15mm x 2mm in size
Remove small insulating cover and bend switch up about 30 degrees then flick with fingernail and blow out the dust or rust.
This resets the switch (horray)
Replace insulation on switch and bend back into position gently.
Replace cover over the coil.
Turn pump by hand (resistance should be like pushing 2 small/ medium size magnets together the wrong way)

Return pump to machine and reconnect pumps electrical connections. 2
Reconnect machine to mains (water and electric and waste)
Turn on machine while holding START and SKIP BUTTONS at the SAME TIME.
Leave it off for five mins then turn off and turn on again.
If it does not work straight away RESET again and Repeat as above.
SELECT PROGRAM AND WASH ALL YOUR TROUBLES AWAY.

One piece agitator wraps cloths


When loading the machine, load towels, sheets or jeans with an accordion fold instead of putting the laundry in a circle around the agitator. It helps to put the clothes in at the twelve o'clock position, then six o'clock, then nine o'clock and then three o'clock. Repeat this sequence until the washer is full.
The laundry can circulate much better and get cleaner too.

1E = WATER INLET ERROR
• Correct water level (2 level) is not reached within 8 minutes after water is supplied or it does not reach the preset water level within 25 minutes.
Check water line strainers for any blockage Check that the water supply lines are opened all the way. Replace water inlet valve if above conditions are met.

I have an LG F1256QD machine that keeps stopping half way through the cycle with the message 1E displaying. I've lost the manual! Any idea how to solve the problem please?


1E = WATER INLET ERROR
• Correct water level (2 level) is not reached within 8 minutes after water is supplied or it does not reach the preset water level within 25 minutes.
Check to see that your water valves are open all the way. Check the strainer in the water hose for any buildup or blockage.
Here is the "Service Manual" for your machine.

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.

Washer fills up only half way but water keeps trying to fill tub


That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.

The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model.
On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.
