Check the float bulb in the bottom of the tub and the switch below the tub. It may be stuck in the up position telling the computor that the water has filled. The timer is not supposed to advance to another process engagement until the water floats the bulb and changes the bottom switch position.

Check if your water valve filters are blocked or if water coils have failed,also small water level pipe could be blocked with powder,pressure switch must beat low level to fill,also there could be a problem with a voltage drop on the line or plug causing valve to stay closed and motor to hummm at spin,hope this helps

Bosch error E24 after 2 minutes into cycle, along with grinding noise.


Bearings or a belt have gone bad on the drum. After water fills and the agitator starts the drum begins to move and that's when you hear the grinding. error code stops the machine from further damage.

You start the washer and the water will fill up to where it is suppose to but will not start to aggitate.The water will drain but the drum won't spin,than it will fill up again and it won't agitate...


Your drain hose is maybe too low and therefore gravity is draining out the washer OR the drain hose is too tight in the drain and a siphoning effect is happening.

Top loading washer that won't aggitate, or rinse.


without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay

Washing machine continues to fill when starts


If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Me and my kids are going nuts because everytime we wash something, it goes off balance the clothes are wet and it flashes ue ''uneven'' even if it is only 1 piece of clothing . I have adjusted all the legs...


if the cycle does not gets complete then its --
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.

Washing machine agitates at beginning of cycle without filling


Chances are either:1) the water pressure switch has failed or 2) the hose that connects to the air bell has debris in it and it will not allow the switch to reset

GE washing machine does not run, gives humming noise


A washing machine is a simple product.

When trouble shooting anything you have to know what is supposed to do and what is it not doing.

At the begining of a washing machine cycle the machine fills with water until a switch is made telling the machine it is full and ready to agitate. Since it never fills it will stick in that part of the cycle.

When you start a cycle and no water enters the drum you have one of three problems:

1. The water supply is shut off.
2. The solenoid valve that supplies the water is not opening.
3. No power to the washing machine.

Since you are hearing a hum, the machine seems to be trying to activate that valve,
The humming noise comes from the electromagnetic field that activates the valve,
