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.

SOURCE: error on Westinghouse mastermind 708 front loader washing machine

This happend to me once, and it was in relation to a blocked intake filter.

- Check that the intake houses are not cloged and the small filter under neath is clean (Use an old tooth brash)
- Also check the opening on the front bottom left of the machine. (Open with a flat head screw driver)
. My one had coins in it. Note: drain with the small pipe into a backet so when you open it you don't have watter everywere.

SOURCE: Bosch Maxx 1000 front loader starts but stops

Have one of these machines and when on the drying cycle the drum started pushing the machine around the kitchen and making a very bad sound so we stopped it before it blew up. On looking at the internal workings we can see a screw and part of the plastic housing that held it in place fell to the floor. It appears to be part of a frame that holds a metal brace in place that holds the drum in place and ensure that it joins the door to the machine. To me it looks as thought the machie is capable of washing but if we use it to dry it will damage itself and breakdown. Anyone else had this problem and any solutions.

Hi,

Remove the three screws on the lower front panel. The panel will slide down and out of the way. Next twist the filter handle and pull the filter out of position. Clean the filter and run a test cycle. That should fix your washer friend, good luck.

Unplug your unit and take the panel back off and check to see if any wiring came unplugged.

Water did not drain


see the causes and fix it. God bless you
If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pump It pumps, but the water returns It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Washer stoped flashing code f21


you have something stuck in the pump or a bad pump,remove the bottom cover,look at the pump and you'll see that the center has a grove in it so you can grab it and turn it counterclockwise to remove it but first with a shop vac vac out all the water in the tub then set up the vac down near the pump,turn the center of the pump until water start to leak out,vac it up until it's drained and then remove the center piece,clean it out,also stick your finger into the pump and feelaround to make sure nothing is in there or in the impellar,check the rubber boot of the hose,you can stick the vac in there to see if anything gets vacced out,put the piece back in tightly,add some water,put it on drain,if it drains you're done,if it doesn't check the pump again,if it's clear you need a new pump,those pumps are hard to kill so most likely your gonna find some lovely stuff in there,also the water stinks from the detergent so get ready for the stink,it's always like that.hope this helps,if your washer doesn't have the pump that the center part can be removed just pull off the hoses and clean out the pump and check the hoses for any junk cought up in there.good luck with your washer

Washer won't agitate or spin


Hello there and welcome to fixya
there are several things that you will need to check first ok please verrify the following
It doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
It pumps, but doesn't spin
If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

I have a kemore elite he 3t front load washer it won't drain and its giving me a F02 error message. what does this mean? Help!


it's a long drain error code,most likely the pump is blocked with all kinds of good stuff,coins, screws,and who knows what else,vac out all the water with a shop vac, and next time open the door,look around the opening where you put the clothes into the washer and you'll see a tag with the model and serial numbers,just need the model number,remove the bottom panel,look at the pump,if the center part can be removed,turn it slowly counter clockwise until the water starts to leak out and stop and vac up the water as it leaks out,do this until it's empty and then remove the center catch piece of the pump and clean it out,stick your finger in the pump and make sure nothing is stuck in the impellar,also check the rubber boot part of the hose,sometimes stuff is still in there,if the center of the pump doesn't come out,pull off the hoses to the pump and check them for junk in them and check the pump,reconnect the hoses,fill with some water and put in a spin cycle,if the water still doesn't drain out most likely you'll have to change out the pump.

My Maytag washer is showing F21, so I took the bottom panel off and was going to try opening the drain pump to clean the filter. But the top to turn counter clockwise seems to be sealed by a blue area on...


send the model number so i can look up the pump.the part you turn isn't on top of the pump,it's in the front of the pump.on some models the pump doesn't come apart,you remove the hoses and clear out whatever is in the impellar.this is a different machine but if the middle of your pump can be removed it will look like this pump,copy and paste,this is a G.E. but the pump looks the same.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7rJkWE0nN0

Have a Vizio VX37L that when it is turned the


HERE'S THE FIX: I just went through this with my Vizio VX37L. TV is stuck in RGB input. This is the fix.... TV is stuck in RGB input.
(option 1) Power on TV, and press the INPUT button repeatedly and rapidly until you can change to a different input, such as AV.
If that doesn't work, try:
(option 2) With the TV off, press and hold the INPUT button on the side of the TV for about 5 seconds. The TV should power on and the input list will appear. The TV will no longer be locked, and the INPUT button should function properly after that.

Option 2 worked for me!
