Mine had the exact same problem! After looking around here, I determined it was the lid switch. When you open/close the lid, it should activate a little switch to let the machine know the lid is closed. It should make a distinctive CLICK sound, even when the machine is unplugged. If it doesn't that means the machine thinks the lid is still open and won't go any further as a safety precaution. On mine, I followed directions on this site to bypass the lid switch until I got a replacement part. It is now working fine.

However, after I disconnected it, I realized that I could have fixed the switch itself without having to get a new one. The glue holding the whole switch together was simply not working any more. If I held the switch together, it clicked again. I could have fixed the whole thing with a strong rubber band and saved my self the $35 part and hassle of having to go back and replace it. Oh well, too late now since I already disconnected it from the wires.

Look for Replacing a Lid Switch for great directions on this fix. If the lid switch isn't the problem, by the way, the other solutions seem to be with the pump being clogged. But the way you described the problem sounds like exactly happened to mine. Good luck!

Cold water won't stop before rinse cycle


if it fails to stop running only at the rinse part of the cycle it is probably in the timer as the solenoid valve has to cut the water off when the washer fills for the wash cycle too. fills for wash cycle and cuts off water, washes and drains, refills for rinse cycle and water just keeps running? does this every time you run it? that's in the timer. bad solenoid (water inlet valve) would keep running even on wash fill up. hope this helps.

Beko WMP652W washing machine will start cycle but get stuck at end of wash, doesnt go onto rinse or spin any help please?


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
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.

My GE SpaceSaver Washer/dryer will wash, but when it's time to rinse and spin the machine stops. It will not drain, riinse , or spin.


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Spin/drain cycle won't start


If the timer gets to the rinse cycle and stops,
Check the lid switch for continuity. If no continuity replace the lid switch.
If the timer continues through rinse and spin without doing either, replace the timer.

Amana washer only works on delicate cycle


Open the control panel. Unplug the timer and then plug it back in good and firm.
If it does not work correctly after that,
Replace your timer.

Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.


that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:



I quote from : The cycle doesn't advance

  • It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
