    To each of you who responded to my plight, I thank you so very much! I went through what each of you had said to do and can only surmise it was a blockage of soap powder, as when I put machine back together ready for a technician (I gave up) to come in and do it, it worked!!! Yay, I am so grateful... Again, I thank you so very much. Cheers... Sapph (",) P.S. Girls can do anything hehehe

This is a problem with the pressure system usually caused by a build up of powder residue but can be caused by other blockages. Remove machine lid and locate pipe which is about 6mm in diameter. follow pipe down which will lead to pressure bottle. Clean out and replace and should be ok. If bottle is clear check pipes for other blockages and check preesure pipe for damage.

SOURCE: he2 leaking from detergent dispensor

We had the same problem, It was a pair of sock stuck behind the seal in the drum blocking the water inlet to the drum. Like others we managed to get our fingers between the metal of the drum and the rubber seal near the detergent dispensor to remove the sock.

Yes the system is cloghed. Pull the detergent drawer out and clean the drawers housing. try using some bleach. It allways helps.

BE ADVICED: after using bleach run quick wash cycle on without any load, it's just to get rid of all bleech remains and not to damage your clothes

Update me about your progress

SOURCE: Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen

This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

SOURCE: machine will not stop filling with water

Does machine stop filling if you discnnect from power? If it does, the problem lies with timer/control unit, or fault in pressure switch/ tube. Check pressure tube (thin rubber pipe that goes from water level selctor switch to side of outer bowl) for holes- replace if faulty. You can test pressure switch by remove pressure tube from outer bowl and blowing thru tube- you should hear the water level switch click when you blow, and then click again when you release pressure.   If it keeps filling even with power off, you have a faulty inlet valve. If you remove top panel (3 screws along top rear-power off first!!), you will see the inlet valves- one for hot, one for cold. The valve is the thing the inlet hoses screw onto. New valves availble from any good spare parts supplier, relatively inexpensive part. Good luck!!

Simpson enviro 080 doesnt spin


water backing up in the machine indicates a blockage. Two places to look are the filter and the hoses. If it is a well used machine there is a possibility of clothing in the pump. Usually something small like a sock. Hope this helps.

Simpson Ezi Sensor Front Loader keeps pausing during washes, doesn't put through the detergent.


you might be putting the detergent in the wrong part of the dispenser,or you might have the hose on the wrong way,or the water valve has failed. Read up on your user manual to see what happens on this part of the cycle,does the w/m empty ,then try and bring in more water?? The main give away to this fault is,detergent still in the dispenser.Check all your filters on your inlet hose and water valves.
You have to ask yourself what has changed,cheers.

Timer turns off during cycle


Yes. The timer needs replaced. Either the motor inside is getting too weak to turn, or the gears are stripping out on it.

Whirlpool front loader WF665/1 spilling water during cycle. Water is leaking from where the powder is deposited into the machine during the filling stage of the washing cycle. The machine will continue its...


that means that the water is leaking from the hows at the back of the detergent drawer.

This is not a difficult fix, however the washing machine must be taken apart to access the detergent hose and find the leak.

Always better to call a technician.
