My washing machine stops half way through the cycle, and makes a ringing noise, I think it stops just before the spin cycle as it is full when it stops.


Possible that the drain pump is faulty and it is clogged with fabric dirt and so as it tries to spin and drain you hear the noise but since the water does not drain the controller unit shuts down as a an error.
So manually lift the drain and clear the water, then remove the drain pump assmebly and open to clear the dirt , refit and check.
Check this link for some tips:

Stops in cycle, not sure if its when rinsing? I notice it stops and an error code of OE ?


This error code OE means the tub is not fully drained 10 minutes after the drain pump is turned on.This is possibly due to a clogged/kinked drain hose or the drain filter is blocked. Make sure the drain hose is clear then open the filter door located at the bottom left front of the machine. Drain the remaining water from the tub through the emergency drain hose located in the filter door area. Once completely drained, turn the knob counterclockwise then pull out and clean the filter. Reach in the pump impeller area and turn it with your finger. Replace the drain pump if the filter is clear and the impeller is broken or restricted and cannot be freed.

Water won't drain


Hi,


Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

* Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.

* Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.

* Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

* If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.


Thank you !!

Cycle stops and won't drain or spin. The 'end' light flashes and it makes a whirring noise, won't go onto the rinse cycle.


Have you checked the pump and filter are clear? bottom right flap on front panel to expose pump. Check the hoses are clear, particularly if it is connected under the sink, via a spigot connection. If the machine has good motor action, but not spinning effectively, it will more than likely be a drainage problem.

The washer stops mid cycle and says Ob. I


The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control.
One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.

Fisher & Paykel GW712 error code 37


Ultimatly replaced the new pump with a "genuine" pump from F&P which fixed the problem permenantly. Interesting is that all the id tag details of the pump manufacturer were exactly the same on both "new" pumps. The only noticable difference was the impleller design which could have possibly been overloading the "generic" pump, causing it to cut out. One final note; it takes eight complete load cycles to be completed after a fault code has been repaired before the code resets.

Meile G638 I Plus dishwasher


Problem solved, the dishwasher starts its wash cycle with a drain sequence, the pan did not drain in time for the wash cycle to continue , thererfor locking it out on inlet/drain alarm. I removed the drain hose from the S trap, then the non-return valve from the filter basket, made sure the drain pump impelar was free, blew down the drain hose back into dishwasher to clear any waste in the pipe,then found a block in the S trap orifis, after clearing that, reasembled and test run on cold pre wash cycle this runs for aprox 10 min.customer was very happy.
