Re: continues pumping

Sounds like it needs a new timer. The timer is the brain and tells the machine what to to.

How to stop the water?

Not knowing what brand / model you have makes it difficult however, the basic symptoms of a water problem are; If the water keeps coming into the machine with the power off and the tap on, it will be a valve fault. If the water keeps coming in with power on and on a wash cycle, its likely to be a fault with the pressure switch, pressure tube (Split or hanging off) or an electronic failure of the control board.Lastly, check the drain hose. If the end of the hose is lower than the water level of the machine, it is possible for the machine to start syphoning itself. Espe3cially just after the first pump out (Start of Rinse cycle) Make sure the machine is actually pumping water out. If it cant pump out, the machine may try to refill but it is already still full from last wash , causing the error code to flash. Check for pump jamming up with foreign objects, or hoses blocked with a sock, lint etc.. Sorry but cant help much more than this.

Ge washer tl1103pbwn

The washer uses a green light, which is the "Start" button, to indicate problems, and the flash pattern is a code to the type of problem. Two flashes means the washer's drain pump must be cleaned. Clumpy or poor-quality detergents can clog the drain pump. The user can attempt to fix the pump, but, If the problem continues, he must contact the GE customericon1.png service line for professional service.

I have a fischer and paykel top loading washing machine for the last few years that that given use excellent service. In the last month when a programme is run the machince gets stuck at the rinse cycle...

Hi dude - is this a replica of the lights - where I put 0 theres no light, 1 is a light ok you follow? on the top is 8 lights from left - right the first 5 is always green, next 2 is orange & last is red! so I will try and see if we are on the same track...

Here goes - 0010 0101 is this what you have? - if yes then the pump is either overheating of severely blocked - more likely to be overheated.

This is how the washer works. it fills, washes then rinses - now pump starts up as machne joggles and agitates to set up for a spin, then final rinse - as it goes to end it does the same as in rinse.

Therefore I tend to think we would be looking at the same lights on your machine - to my illustration -

Keep the chin up - if you need to replace the pump then look up other F&P request or look up my solutions to help you.

Hello Paula,
Do not know how many flashes but 1green/1red = 11 water pressure low.
2green/1red = 21 blocked filter or pump fault.
You would be best firstly checking the filter and make sure it is clean and pump turns.with water drained and filter out shine torch into filter put on spin/drain and see if pump blade spins if not then try and turn with long screwdriver to free out any debris then refit filter and check for leaks and try donnt fill fully until you are happy it can drain water.
Hope I was of some help.

Good Luck

Whirlpool front loader washing machine (AWO3361) WONT DRAIN

Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.
