SOURCE: Wash starts it fills with water then stops and wont wash

problem may just be that drum is not turning so you think program is stopped. try cancelling and select spin program and see if you get spin

SOURCE: fills washes rinses but wont spin properly or empty out

its likely the pump is blocked (hence the humming) with a coin or some foreign object. To check, lower the outlet hose to ground level to allow the water to empty. Tip machine back & lean against a wall, remove the pump & remove object if there is one! Reassemble & try machine again

SOURCE: "Test" displays no washing done!

Your test mode is on, maybe accidently. Press "start", "cancel", "on" & "off" together for 10 secs, you will see d/off come on the display. Do the same & the test mode comes on again.

SOURCE: does not spin and rinse properly

Sounds like motor is not coming up to spin speed. May be overheating, in which case you would need a new motor.

SOURCE: Water wont drain from Machine or go onto spin cycle

either the level control switch has become blocked or faulty or the drain pump has become stuck.

disconnect from the mains and gain access to the rear look for a circular unit with two or three electrical connections and a plastic tube. this is the level control.follow the tube to its start and you will find a plastic connection that goes into the wash drum, remove the plastic tube from the switch end and blow into it. if there is no restistance then the system is OK at the drum end. next reconnect the tube to the switch and remove the opposite end, very gently blow down the tube and you should hear the switch operate. Test wether the switch is working by putting a meter across the switch and blow into the tube. if all of this is OK then the drain pump is at fault. locate the drain pump. it is connected to the outlet tube, try turning by hand. if it does not rotate smoothly remove the clips holding the pump body together and clear the obstruction.

Kenmore washer not draining,spin drying


if you can hear the motor running with a loud ticking noise you probably need a drive coupler. if it stops dead and nothing happens you probably need a lid switch.

EuroTech EWC177 washer/dryer combo reset


tinaheinleHello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, ..well this is a solution.....
my roommate unplugged the machine while it was drying. the start and spin lights were both flashing. I called the company and they told me to reset it, but the weren't sure how, lol.
I unplugged it and waiting, nothing. I flipped the breaker, nothing. I finally turned it to a setting, and turned on nob on the dry, and it started clicking.
I turned off the dry, and hit the start button, and it started right up...


If the next time you use it and it's fine then you did succeed in resetting the system and will be alright!
Let me know that we were successful!

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you

Some magic happened today!

I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!

Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...

The way to get it to dry :
-----------------------------------
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"

It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!

Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...

Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)


For "spin only" from machine being off:
-------------------------------------------------------
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.


Things I don't know:
----------------------------
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons

...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.

Hope that helps.
Will
