    Kenmore Model #110 20842 990. It spins, drains, but is not filling with water on any cycle. I think I have isolated the problem to either the water control valve or the water level control/pressure switch.

  • maggies42 May 13, 2009

    It does not fill - period. Hot or cold. It does not hum. We have had both parts tested and appear to be in working order. I check the hose from the pressure switch to the tub - it is air tight. But, when I connect the hose to the tub (whatever that is on the outside of the tub that it connects to) I can blow air through the hose and also **** air through the hose. Is this supposed to be an airtight connection?

  • maggies42 May 13, 2009

    There is an electronic card under the panel, but there is no digital display - if that is what you are talking about. I had the pressure switch (load level) checked, and the water fill valve (solenoid) checked.

    If you have a volt meter set for ohm/continuity do the following.

    Unplug the washer from power.

    Set the water temperature switch for warm wash/cold rinse.

    Remove the brown/red wire and the yellow/red wire.

    Test the brown/red terminal and the brown terminal for continuity on the switch.

    Set the switch for hot wash/warm rinse and test the green/black and the brown/red for continuity.

    If that switch checks out too your timer will be the bad part.

    If the water valve and water level and water temoerature switches check out OK, that only leaves the timer contacts.

    You said you had 2 switches checked out. Which 2?



    P.S. There is no program board in this model.

    Yes it will be one of those two parts. Sometimes both.

    Does it fill if set to HOT water?

    Does it hum when set to fill?

I'm not familiar with roper washing machines so I'll ask the question does it have two fill hoses. Most European machines now only have one fill. If it has two then it sound like the machine takes the initial water from the one fill and the rinse cycle water from another. The humming sounds like the valve for the other fill needs replacing. These are quite inexpensive and easy to fit. Power off.. remove lid ....switch of water...take out valve when you establish which one is affected and replace

Beko WMP652W washing machine will start cycle but get stuck at end of wash, doesnt go onto rinse or spin any help please?


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
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.

Not getting enough water during rinse cycle


In the rinse cycle it will use cold only to rinse with.
You need to see how fast the water is going into the machine on rinse
Things that can effect slow fill, low water pressure, Faulty cold valve
water hose & valve filters clogged, Kinked hose

Moffatt washer is washing and draining but not spinning out the clothes

> Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water

Hi there,

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.

Good Luck!!
