Question about Haier HLP21E Top Load Washer

2 Answers

My friend has this washing machine and has to turn the water off and on

With every cycle. It seems not possible that they would make something like that. Is that the way it is suppose to be? Should it stop accepting water, but not allow the water to leak. Then accept more water for the rinse? Anyone have this same model? Do you have to get up to turn the water off when its ready to wash.

Re: My friend has this washing machine and has to turn...

To both of your problems... yes, this washer is electronic, and won't even continue the cycle until it's full. It has a pressure switch just like a normal washing machine, and it sounds like yours are faulty (seems to be a common problem with the HLP21E). You can try tearing it apart and recalibrating the switch yourself, but if you're not familiar with that, just call Haier. As of today you should still be under the full replacement warranty if it was new when you posted this ;)

This is my Model # WTW57ESVW1 In the normal wash cycle, the timing seems off. When you first turn it you can hear the water but it also seems the agitator is already going and at the end of the cycle when...

Seems possible that the program controller is not working in order of the sequence that is required of the program.
So you must check the connection contacts, clean and try if this helps or else a new controller might be necessary as many of them develop bad contacts on usage..
Check cost , if possible swap and confirm before you buy one to fix.

Asko 12605 overheating the wash water

(even not taking in hot water when filling before the wash stage which seems good)

The washer fills with cold water then heats it up 3 degrees a min. Your problem does sound like a faulty thermostat. Especailly if the glass door does get hot even if it is on 85f.

Shut off power and the valve on wall. Unscrew the hose from the wall faucet & check for blocks in the small screens, and on machine water entry valve also. Could be just some dirt or something; the screens are important. If possible also check the dispenser area.
