Question about Washing Machines

Washing machine not filling with water not washing but will empty and will spin

At the start of washing cycle nothing happens at all.Machine does not fill with water and when you manually advance dial to further into wash mode machine starts to spin.It does not rinse in (rinse /spin) cycle but spins only and of course when dial advances to spin mode it does that effecively with pump operating. I have checked taps on wall and tubes to machine all clear and working.I have checked connections to machine where hose filters are for hot and cold and they are clear.Also looked at both inlet valves they are closed to allowing water in.How does unit tell them to open?Checked tube to pressure chamber seemed clear.When i blew air thru tube to to pressure switch I saw it click etc.Can you please help.Do not know what to do next?Replace inlet valves?Pressure swith? or use machine as anchor for my boat!.

    It's a Hoover top loading washing machine. Water isn't filling. One probable cause was>>>>"Hose filter was plugged"....what does this mean????...and where i am suppose to locate this plugged hose filter...

    will not fill with cold water but hot does work. whirlpool washer. took hoses off, it seems clear. Does whirlpool have soleniods?

    I had this same problem, and after fiddling and reasearching i assumed it wa sthe solenoid as the guy below said.. however, in our defeat after putting the machine back together, it worked. Apparently one of the connectors was loose!

    i had the same problem and after taking everything apart and putting it back together it worked.. apparently the connectors were a little loose!

    Thanks, it was the water valves/solenoids at the top of the machine where the tap hoses screw onto the machine.

Like the anchor idea?, no sorry, this does sound like the water is not getting to the machine, so, when you turn the machine on does it make a slight buzzing noise, if so the fault is no water in the pipes to the machine (from the house), if no buzzing check the solenoids with a multimeter for open circuit (removing the 2 wires first) oh and the plug obviously / replace solenoid if needed, i am sure this will cure your problem, if so rate me please, thank you

Washer will not cycle


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Kenmore washer 110.16112503 works in wash & spin cycle but not rinse. After wash cycle finished I hear a humming sound and the machine does nothing until I manually start spin cycle. Broken timer?

My frigidaire top loader fills with water at the beginning of the wash...then nothing. it just sits there full of water.


Hi, could be your timer motor, timer or water level switch, first push timer knob in and manually advance to wash or spin cycle (program) then pull knob, see if machine operates, let me know, then i can tell you exactly what's problem.also advance timer, to spin cycle (program) machine should pump out water, or you can lower drain hose into bucket and empty machine, you should empty machine and try again, let me know what happened, we can solved this together. good luck.

Drum will not spin


Hi,
I am the new owner of a used Asko Cylinda 10504.
The last owner briefly demonstrated the washer starting a wash cycle and entering the agitation cycle of the wash before stopping and pumping the water out and spinning in a final end cycle. I bought it. I had the machine installed turned it on and cannot get it to go through the wash cycle. After starting at #1 it goes through a perpetual spin cycle of sorts--water and soap soaking the drum and laundry but not enough water to fill up half way or less. It stops at number 4 on the program knob sits on a red dot (next to the #4) and does nothing. I then manually move it to the next cycle and it repeats the spin cycle again until I have advanced the program to the end. No wash cycle no rinse cycle. Nothing. When it advances to the red dot I wait for at least 5 minutes before manually advancing the knob. The instructions say that I should get the water pumped out by turning the program knob to #7 or #9 but in both cases it just spins and does no empty or finish in the end spin cycle of several (9?) minutes. Nothing but banging and spinning. The water seems to get into the drum as well as the detergent but nothing else is happening.
No mater where I start the program it spins and sloshes soapy water, pumping almost nothing out.
Any suggestions short of putting it on the curb or paying a kings ransom to fly a tech out to look at it?

MY GUESS.
It seems that it is repeating the same brief cycle over and over. During the move to my house the electronics re set(??!?!?) and now need to be set to the normal mode after being re connected?
Can you help?
Blessings,
Douglas

The machine works fine until it reaches the rinse cycle.


The buzzing sound is the cold water inlet valve is getting power but water is not able to enter. You need to have the valve replaced or make sure the cold water is turned on at the sink. Hope that helps, let me know.
