SOURCE: Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.

SOURCE: kenmore 90 series washer will not drain

This is the symptom of a defective lid switch. If you do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound when opening or closing the washer lid, more than likely the switch is broken or not making contact. Depending on what type of switch you have depends on how it is activated. Most washers have a switch located on the right-hand side of the lid with a slot. A plunger on the lid activates the switch when it closes. Make sure the switch is not loose (two mounting screws on the rim of the lid opening) or the plunger is not broken off. On some models, the lid switch is located on the left-hand side in the rear under the rim of the lid. It is activated by a rod on the lid hinge. Sometimes this rod can be adjusted by bending it slightly. If you check everything and determine the switch is bad, it can be replaced by performing the following steps:

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up.

Or, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console.

I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments. A new lid switch should cost about $35.

SOURCE: miele W1712 washing machine drain fault

Just had the same problem, after Much patience and persistence I found the blockage at the y piece that joins the pump to the outlet hose air trap towards the top of the machine LHS with the top and cover off.

It was clogged solid therefore no back pressure on the top little ball valve (between the air trap and the outlet) therefore no seal therefore norain therefore a drain-fault that persists regardless of a cleaned pump filter.

you have a plugged or partial plugged drain pump for sure. maybe there is a 20 stuck in it this time! easy to find just follow the drain hose back and you will find your pump.
also could be the cycle your using has a bad area in timing cct. check a different cycle like the delicate cycle and that will confirm pump or cycle

What are some reasons why my GE stacked washer stops after spin cycle?


Katary, first it sounds like it is a bad drain pump. to access drain pump you need to remove the front panel, to remove the front panel there are 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel near each corner. Once removed the bottom pulls out and the panel will lift up 90 degrees before being able to be removed from the top "hinge" point. Once removed you will see 2 large rubber hoses, 1 short and 1 long, in between the two is your electric drain pump. It should be on and "humming" during the spin cycle. appliancepartspros.com have that pump for $106.00

Washer won't go into spin cycle, stops after final rinse. When I try drain &rinse it still will not spin.


If the unit does not spin correctly, this is usually an indication that the unit can also not drain. The unit will not spin if it senses a blockage or issue with the drain lines and/or pump. Try to check the drain lines in the back of the unit for any issue, and then see if you have an access panel to get to the coin trap or drain pump itself. Often socks and debris will clog up in this area and cause your problems.

My whirlpool machine does not spin properly and there is always water left after the spin cycle, when its turned on it will stop after spin cycle like its finished but there is still a lot of water left in...


hi, it sounds like one of two possibilties, will try and help out. The first thing to check is whether the water/drain pump is actually working fine, i think it blocked. Secondly the pump may also be overheating and malfunctioning during the cyle, run it without clothes and check the flow of the drain during the drain/spin cycle and take it from there.

The water runs during the spin cycle. The clothes


Does the water run through the ENTIRE spin cycle? There is a period where the water will run during the spin; This is called, the "Final Rinse". But it usually only runs for about 10 seconds then stops.

No drum movement during wash/spin cycle, although it fills/drains


brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.
