Check for low water pressure. Clear screens in inlet valve. Do-not remove screens. This unit will turn off if not filled in specified time.

SOURCE: aeg 72630 update will not rinse during rinse cycle

If the drain lines were plugged, there may have been enough pressure on the pump to fault out. Make sure the sewer line is completely open, as well as the lines at the pump.

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.

    I have the same problem. I do not think this has a micro switch to activate the wash cycle or spin. I have looked carefully.

    I have a gut feeling that this works on a sensor similar to that of a sonic car alarm. It may have gone out of sync and needs to be retuned.

    I have tried to find the software but it is not commercially available.

    Where can I get a lint filter for a tech magic 9kg washing machine. who makes these. I have noticed that I have a small amount of water sitting under the drum in the machine. . Thank you

    It may be that your pump is not functioning efficiently ?
    Usually what happens here is that the pump to expel the water is not functioning, the normal problem here is a coin or hair grip gets lodged in the pump and stops the impeller from turning, generally the pump can be removed and opened up to remove the offending article and allow the impeller to operate again, once cleared of obstruction reassemble the pump and refit it. ( be aware, as the machine is still full of water, when you remove the pump the water will flood out so you need plenty of towels so soak up the water that spills.

    E3 water drainng error

    Some drain problems come from the washer drain hose not being high enough to allow for the water to fill in the dishwasher. Make sure the hose is held as high as the washer top as possible before it drains into the sink drain pipe. A good example is your cloths wash machine the drain hose comes from the bottom of the machine then it goes up to the drain that is higher than the basket. This keeps the water level high enough to wash clothes. The dishwasher works the same way. The drain hose must be slightly higher or as high as the needed level in the machine to work. In most cases as high as the dishwasher top or close to it. Simple raise the drain hose.

    After main washing, stops and can't spin. Gives error E3.

    The "E3" error indicates that a Samsung washer's motor is not running properly. The cycle can usually be restarted by pressing the "Start/Pause" button. However, if the error code appears again, you should contact an authorized service technician.

    My NEC NFL855 E3 error

    E3 error is discharging water problem. ie 1.the pump not working (under bra wire will stop it spinning) or 2. the discharge hose blocked or most likely 3. the pump inlet hose from the drum is blocked (with small article of cloth or coins or similar).
    To Fix:
    1. Open the pump filter and check if spinning during empty/spin cycle, make sure nothing jamming or twisted around impellor.
    2. Check discharge hose is not crushed or kinked.
    3. Lay machine on its side, access pump and remove inlet hose assembly and remove any blockage.
