There is a water pump in the machine which pumps the water out of the outer tub and into the drain, after the wash and rinse cycles.
It is possible that this pump isn't working properly. I think if it weren't working at all, you wouldn't be able to get beyond the wash cycle.

It has been my experience that small articles of clothing may get washed or spun out of the inner tub and into the area around the pump pick up, thus partially blocking the flow to the pump.
It's also possible that the drain hose from the pump to the drain may be partially clogged.
It is also possible that the pump doesn't run sufficiently long to get all of the water out because its' motor gets hot and shuts down or because of a problem in the control mechanism which manages the the starting and run time of the pump.

First, I would unplug the washer from the wall outlet and probe under the inner tub, or possibly remove the tub to see that there is no blockage from clothing.
It's also possible that things left in clothing pockets like paper clips, small plastic items, etc. can get into the pump and lock up the impeller.
If you're sure it isn't blocked you can then run a "short cycle", no load and water only, and watch to see how much water comes out of the discharge hose where it's hung on the drain pipe.
It should gush out, and tub should be free of standing water prior to the start of the first rinse cycle.
If it does not, then you'll have to access the pump and clear it of obstructions or replace it, if defective.

As it drains, it should start spinning slowly, then speed up as it drains; the final portion of the spin cycle is very fast.
Essentially, the spinning tub wrings out the clothes using centrifugal force.

With the water remaining in the bottom of the tub, it would appear that it is:
a) not spinning long enough, or
b) there is something preventing all the water from getting out in the time allotted by the timer to perform this task.


A fair handy man can get to pump either from the rear of the machine with back plate off, or by removing the cabinet cover from the frame, depending on the model of the the machine.

As always - before attempting any repair, UNPLUG THE UNIT!



When clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.
If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.

Spin cycle
If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning
If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve
Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

SOURCE: I have a kenmore front

The fancy control monitors the water right? It knows when it took too long to fill and to drain right?
I would remove the top and blow out the sediment in the tubing to see if that fixes it before ordering any expensive parts. themobilian_125.jpgremove that tubing from that pressure switch and blow it out. It don't hurt to try. themobilian_126.jpgthemobilian_127.jpgthemobilian_128.jpg Manual and more photos

Float Switch

The float switch may be hung up and this can cause the dishwasher to be stuck in a cycle. 87af5b68-272e-404a-951c-cd453d3cd7fe.jpg

Timer / Control

If your dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle first try shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem you will need to replace the timer/electronic control

Manua beko 5kg aa class 1000 rpm


most washers on a full wash cycle take about 60 minutes. It will take longer if you use a soak cycle with extra minutes because if you have a soak cycle and you set it for 30 minutes the total wash time will be around 1 hour and 30 minutes.

What does E27 on display mean


Bosch washers come with built-in sets of error codes used to diagnose and correct common problems. The E27 code isn't often listed in Bosch manuals but relates to the washer door lock

The E27 error flashes on the washer LCD screen and stops the current load. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and then plug it back in to reset the code.

Open and close the door two or three times to reset the sensor. Sometimes the door has been closed too hard and the sensor reading fails.

Mid-cycle, the washer stopped and started to beep repeatedly. on the screen flashed F, then H. I can not longer find my manual. can you help?


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code F/H means no water was detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. It can also happen if the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash. You?ll need to Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Dishwasher during normal cycle gets hung up and does not advance


HI. this is just a control fault. you can try to reset the core program by unplugging this unit for 5 minutes. this will drain all power and reset the core on the timer/control.

If you experience the same situation after this reset, simply replace the control/timer module.

Washer not working


Okay...try unplugging the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes. This will often cure momentary glitches with the washer computer. After the washer has been reset, attempt the start a load and let me know if it functions normally. If it doesn't, let me know what the front panel display reads.

Model 110.45962.400 code comes up f 06


The following link explains the "F06" error code on a Kenmore Elite:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

In a nutshell, the error is an indication of a Motor Speed problem. This means there is a communications problem between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Drive Motor or Motor Control Unit (MCU).

However, before assuming there is a problem, unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes. In some cases the washer can experience momentary computer glitches. The 30 minute interval is necessary to reset the computer. Sometimes this is all that is required to clear some error codes.
If the error code returns following a reset, follow the advice given in the link to determine the fault.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

LG Front Load Washer


This model automatically detects the load size and optimizes the washing time however I do not believe the it should get stuck as you say... try this.. load the washer and then using the control knob.. select Normal.. then push the Quick cycle button on the right.. select the soil level button until it displays 31 minutes.. and run that.. if after you run a wash load it continues to display or get hung up on a specific number such as 7.. your control board may be defective.. If its warranteed.insist they replace it.. Hope that helps...
