Samsung Washer model WF448AAP/XAA fills up with water but will not start cycle


That could be the lid switch is open or not engaging.
Check the continuity of the lid switch

Lid is not locking properly, washer sensor is overfilling, and the washer wont spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

Maytag_lse7804ace: washer won't fill with water. If I fill it by hand, the cycle works fine (until it gets to the rinse cycle, when it won't fill again).


Hello John,
The most probable reason the washer is not filling is because of a blown fuse that is part of the lid switch asm. By UNPLUGGING THE WASHER and removing the 2 INNER screws on the the control panel and the control panel can be rotated down to see the fuse in the lid switch asm. Here is where the fuse is on the switch asm. its circled in red 11_4_2011_1_39_54_am.jpg

Washer fills with water. agitates, does'nt finish cycle. still full of water.


The most common reason for this problem is the Lid Switch. If the lid is not closed, washer will not go into extract (drain) & then spin cycles. Check the lid to see if the plastic piece that pushes the switch down is broken off. You can simulate "Lid Down" condition by depressing switch with a screwdriver. It's located on the right side of the wash drum / tub. There is an oval slot there & you should hear & feel a click when pressed down. Look directly above that slot on the lid bottom for the plastic piece that is commonly broken off.
If it is, you can apply a temporary fix by wedging something in the slot to depress switch while you order a replacement part.

*****WARNING*****

Operating washer with this interlock defeated can cause severe injury!
Washer will continue to spin with the lid up!

You should use this technique for troubleshooting purposes ONLY!
Please reply if this is NOT your problem and I'll post other causes & solutions for you.

Washer stopped at the drain cycle Model LSR8233JQ1


Could be either a bad lid switch or a bad water valve.
Set the timer dial to SPIN and turn the machine on.
If it spins the lid switch is OK. If it does not spin the lid switch must be replaced.
Next,set the timer dial on a wash cycle and set the water temperature knob to COLD water. If it fills,the lid switch is bad. If it does not fill the water valve is bad or the cold screen filter is clogged.
If the COLD does not fill,turn off the cold water faucet. Remove the cold water hose from the machine water valve and check for a clooged screen.
If it does not fill with COLD water and the screen is clear,replace the water valve.

Will not agitate


If your washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle or drain, the problem is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

probably just a bad lid switch or best case loose hinge screws if lid switch is located on right side of lid opening try pressing it down with a pencil or small screw driver if works replaced lid switch by removing console screws under end caps or if newer modes switch located under rear hinge area remove console by pressing clips at lower edge each end of console ..remove brass colored clips on older model and pull cabinet or newer model switch is mounted to top of cabinet under console
