Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, recently bought a bush a126q washing machine, worked perfectly fine after 2 washes. However, firstly the programme starter light doesn't stay on throughout the wash, is this a problem? Then the washing machine when set to a 40 degree wash some water does enter the dispenser however it does not fill the machine fully. The washing machine then stops trying and nothing else happens. What is wrong? Thank you!

Sometimes things can get out of sync. Try unplugging the machine for a few hours to rest the code on the board. It's like rebooting your computer. I did this to mine and it cleared up the problem.

SOURCE: Overflowing washing machine

check the pressure switch . its circluar in shape with 6/8 wires attached, and a small nipple with a 10mm pipe attached. as the water rises in the drum air is pushed up thru this pipe which when working ok , eventually pushes against a switch .hence its name. so, if there is damage to this pipe( maybe rubbing against the drum) the passage of air escapes before reaching the switch. if the pipe is ok then check the switch by blowing up the pipe (with the power off ) and u should hear a small click inside the switch. if not replace

SOURCE: Washing machine fills in the water but does not start the wash cycle

The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.

See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."

However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.

A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.

Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.

More likely you will have to replace the timer.

See again from Repairclinic:
"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."

  • You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

    Hi. I have a Bush A126q washing machine, which last night, suddenly stopped working on any programme and with the start/pause light blinking. I have checked the usual suspects, pump filter, too much...


    All Machines theses days are digitally controlled, which means they do a self diagnostic test just before they start. If a fault is found they usually just stop with the light blinking. To determine the exact fault the appropriate Engineer for the machine will come along with his laptop and do his test to find where the fault is. However the most likely cause of your problem if the machine is 3 or more years old is the motor brushes. Remove the motor from the machine then remove one of the carbon brushes, if its about 3ml long its worn out.
    make sure before removing the motor that the machine is disconnected from the Electrical and water supply, makes it a lot easier.

    Recently got a bush a126q washing machine. It now only fills partly with water then does nothing and then ends the cycle. What is wrong?


    If this is a top load washer then I would start with the
    door safety switch. Check with an ohm meter. Open
    would be infinite ohms. Closed would be a short.
    Next would be the water level pressure switch. I usually
    take the hose off of it and put another hose on. Then I
    blow into the hose and listen for a click. You can also
    use an ohm meter to see if you're making contact.
    Next would be a costly circuit board.

    Bush a126q / a146q pause light blinking programme won't start changed fuse Nd cleaned the filter what else could be wrong and what should I do?


    Check Power
    Check the outlet by plugging an appliance into the same outlet the washer was plugged into an running the appliance a hair dryer works good for this it will draw some amperage. If it works fine move on.

    Control
    To check the control remove the top panel and then remove the console to access the wiring to the control. Find the wire feeding the control from the main power cord. If you cannot visually see this refer to the tech sheet or service manual. Connect voltmeter to the 2 wires feeding the control if it is recieving power and it does not respond replace the control

    follow the steps and fix it.
    God bless you

    My bush washing model no:a126q will not start


    Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

    Check that the washer supply is OK using another item - a kettle for instance. If it's not check your breakers/fuses. Reset/replace if necessary and if the same thing happens, or if there was nothing wrong with the breakers/fuses in the first place, sorry but with such a fault it is impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what could be wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.

    I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.

    If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
    Thanks and good luck!

    Bush A126q washing machine manual download


    Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

    It still amazes me that new washing machines, other than those sold in the UK, seem not to have manuals placed inside the drum/tub! I think that purchasers should demand one from the vendor and threaten to go elsewhere if it doesn't supply the goods!

    Now- unfortunately FixYa cannot provide manuals direct - members of the forum are just people from all over the world, probably working from home, and not representing any particular manufacturer ;-0)

    Manual
    You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
    You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

    If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
    Thanks and good luck!

    How do I open the door to my Bush a126q washing machine after a quick wash?


    Reset it back to the spin cycle and try to empty some more water out of it. It should release the door when it knows it is empty.

    Bush A126Q White and the ''end of programme'' light is staying on


    Sorry Jo, I think I may have mis-understood your explanation - is there actually a problem with the machine functioning properly or is it simply that the end of cycle light will not turn off?

    If it is the latter then simply turn the dial back to 0 before opening the door from the previous wash, this action tells the washing machine to reset itself as the drum is about to be emptied.

    I have the exact machine however as it is graded, it didn't come with any manuals, at the end of the wash I just figured thta this was what I needed to do.

    Its almost as if you need to double-declutch the washing machine - return the macine to 0 before selecting another cycle.
