Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer

HotPoint Top Loader model # WLW1500B

Washing Machine will not switch cycles. Will continue to run same cycle continuously. I found this out by accident when it stayed on the same cycle overnite. I can manually switch to next cyle, however, it will not move on to next cycle on it's own. I have never had a problem with this washing machine, if it is an easy economical fix would like to fix it. I have unplugged, turned knob thru complete cylce and replugged in several times, does not fix the problem. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

If you hear clicks then I'd have to say it was a mechanical timer. the timer has a small motor on it. a complete timer including its motor will run you about $120 but a replacement timer motor will be about $35.00

The washing machine starts ok and fills with water. However, it quickly begins to intermittently cut in and out whilst filling with water. It does this for a while before stopping completely. I've tried...

you did not mention the type of machine but for top loader the most probable cause of your issue is the door /lid switch that is in need of adjustment as most top loaders will fill with the lid open but cycle cant start or continue when the wash thinks the door is open this is a safety feature

How do i fix my washing machine interlock hotpoint hvf 344

The door should have a pin on it that pushes and closes the interlock switch. Check to see that the switch is inadjust ment to trip by turning off the water door open and with a plastic rod or a pencil push thru' the hole in the chasis where the door pin goes through and start the machine. If it starts quickly pull out the pencil, unplug the machine and adjust the switch. Plug it back in. It may continue on with the cycle you just started if not better! If not close the door aand start a short cold wash cycle. If it sounds like it wants to start, turn on the water and let it run thru' the complete cycle.

How does a top loader work?

You lift the lid and load your washing into it. They you select the wash cycle, select the type of fabrics you're washing and the temperature and then start the wash cycle.

Then's all kinds of variation, but generally, there's a timer and a thermostat that control a lot of the cycle behaviour like washing times and water temperatur, if their outside the thermostat calibration, the washing machine may not continue to the next cycle until the calibrated temperature registers on the thermostat.

Was there anything else you wanted to know about top loaders?

Kenmore Series 70 Top loader won't spin

it is a problem with the lid switch. check for continuity. if the lid is close , it should have continuity, if you open the lid, it should be open also.

Stuck in wash cycle

check if heating by putting on as hot wash and feeling the door. if no heat, check continuity thro the heater - modern heaters have a non-resettable cut-out in them which can cause problems. no heat then no program advance
