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.

    Hello,
    It would seem to me that the heating element needs replacing from the information you have supplied especially as it performs most of the other functions like filling and spin and drain.
    Good luck

    Hi Rachel from retired Englishman in SW France,

    Methinks the answer is that you could do with a manual for your washer- for now and probably later!
    Manual
    You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
    You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

    If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
    Thanks and good luck!

    I have just moved into an Apartment with a Gorenje wi 62112 Washing machine, I have no manual Can anyone tell me what the numbers on the Dial mean What should I choose for a general wash.


    Gorenje has some documentation for their washers here: http://www.gorenje.com/simplicity/en/washing_machines/simple_manual_for_washing . The numbers indicate the water temperature (in Celsius) for a given cycle. The common choices are a cottons load in hot water (60 degrees). This is great for towels and other whites. The mixed load is for permanent press that can be in warm water (40 degrees). Then there is a cold water cycle for delicates (30 degrees). However, you should check the fabric care label before choosing the cycle.

    I hope this helps.

    this sounds like the motor controller cant start the motor. I would be looking at the motor controller itself.
    when it's filling with water, does the bowl go around slowly?

    Spin cycle is the only that works


    Check for water supply for proper fill. Then other timer circuits.If wter gets filled, fault may be with the water level sensor/wire.
