Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Simpson Espirit 750 washer works intermittently. It fills up OK and stops if you turn the water level switch to reset and back it sometimes starts agitatating. It may start after 2 resets, sometimes 5 or more. You may have to pump out some of the water and refill and then reset. It is very unpredictable If you rotate the switch while pulled up it sometimes starts agitating. Any clues??

    Hi, Thanks for the response. I have already checked over the wiring etc. It all looks in V good condition and solid. I have an electronics background but not in washers! I agree that intermittents are usually associated with loose contacts but this is strange. Any other thoughts??

It has something to do with the electrical wiring or the relay inside your washing machine. You have to take off the plastic panel where the switches are located and check if there's any loose wire that is about to detach. Check also the relay that is connected to the wires.

You may need to contact a repair tech to assist you.

Have a great day!

    The only thing that I could think of is the washer's control board. It has NOTHING to do with the motor or agitator since it works (but intermittently.) Meaning, the one who's controlling the motor (control board) could be the one that has a problem.

    You may need to consult the manufacturer for the second opinion to see if you need to replace the control board. Or maybe by simply drying up or cleaning the board might help.

    Good luck!

Washing machine, Simpson Espirit 500, won't start at all. Power is on and water, cold turned on as well.

Possibly the door switch isn't working or is maladjusted so the machine's brain thinks the door is still open.

Start machine as normal. After a few seconds of filling, press the pause button. Water coming in should stop immediately. If it hesitates then stops or does not stop at all you have a faulty inlet valve. Change it.

Water level

Probable causes:
Faulty water inlet valve - unplug washer, if water continues to fill
replace the valve.
Water level switch, hose or dome faulty - service the assembly.
Timer faulty - unplug washer, if water stops filling test timer.

Simpson espirit 750 won't turn on

Hi, This may sound obvious, but have you checked the fuse? if the machine is completly dead this may be the problem or the ON/OFF switch is faulty. If there is life in the machine the problem could be the door switch. If the fuse has blown then there could be a fault such as heater element blown, is the most common to blow a fuse.

Hi i have a simpson esprit and I can't stop the

If the water continuously keeps filling the tub of the washer this would be due to either you have a bad pressure switch or the hose that is connected to the pressure switch that goes down the side of the unit and connects to the tub has either comes off its connection point or has sediment or debris inside the hose itself which would cause the same issue here is also a basic video of how the pressure switch test is done click this link if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank this opinion when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future.

Water sometimes does not shut off. flooded twice. happens intermittently.

If when the machine is flooding if you turn off power to the machine and it continues to fill: replace water inlet valve. If flooding water stops filling when power is interupted: clean out the end of the water level switch tube where it connects to the outer wash tub.
