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.

    SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Quiet Wash - Wash Cycle not holding water

    Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

    This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

    The water no longer gets cold . What do I check ? Thanks !!


    On a washing machine?

    You have a hot fill inlet, you have a cold fill inlet. The controller dictates how much hot water and cold water to get the right temperature for the wash you have chosen. This is tested by the thermostat in base of the drum. The heater then warms the water to the correct temperature for the full wash.

    Some washers are cold fill only and the heater in the washing machine does all the work. The wash cycles take a lot longer.

    If you are in fact talking about a water cooler not getting cold, check the air filters and for dust on the compressor fins.

    NOT Filling with Water


    The filter at the back of the inlet valve may need cleaning. The inlet valve may no longer work.

    Samsung Washing Machine won't start


    Your program controller unit is working but it must be ensured that there is output on every cycle to the desired output controls. So the inlet valve must work and the motor must run when the water level is triggered by the level controller. So use a meter to check before we can suspect the controller.

    Washing machine displays an LF error code. Started last week during whitest whites cycle in rinse. I cancelled and just did rinse to finish my load. All other cycles worked and yesterday all started...


    LF = Long Fill

    LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
    Is water supply connected and turned on?
    Are hose screens plugged?
    Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.

    E4 error after attempting to fill and get to temp


    This is what I found for the E4 code...hope this helps...and thanks for rating my effort...The Fang.


    Machine won't fill or won't fill high enough(LX18, LX30 display shows "E0," "E2," "E3," or "E4")

    1.Low water pressure — check for clogged hose strainer; check that site water pressure meets minimum flow pressures.
    2.Make sure probes are clean.
    3.No water pressure — main water supply valves may not be working.
    4.Drain valve open - turn machine off to drain machine, then on. Repeat twice (this assists in clearing any drain valve obstructions). Wait for machine to reach READY mode and press WASH. Slowly open door several seconds later and note water level. Close door; 30 seconds later, open door slowly and check that water level is the same as it was. If not, repeat the
    OFF-ON procedure.
    5. Delime machine.

    Washer won't advance from cycle to cycle


    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.

    Fault code 01


    this is actually a fault code error code 1 not one minute check your manual as codes different on some machines from memory i think 1 is a filling fault this machine uses fuzzy logic if water fill takes longer than 4 mins (low pressure) machine stops can be restarted by pressing start button.
    see if machine will complete just a rinse cycle.

    good luck
