I would look at the water inlet valve solenoids. Also, make sure that the protective screens are clean and open in the inlet valve. Hope this helps you and best wishes.

The Calypso washers don't fill up with water where you can see it -- there's a reservoir under the plate at the bottom that fills up, then the machine pumps that water onto the top of the clothes while it swishes them around.

If you are not comfortable disconnecting the drained washer from power and water, and tipping it up so you can unscrew the bottom cover to do this, you can order Sears part # 3954702, which is the diagnostic paperwork that lets you run the washer through its paces one step at a time to help isolate problems.

However, the washer usually should have come with this paperwork, secreted in a plastic pouch up towards the top of the washer attached to the outer case way at the top (therefore hard to get to from the top without opening the top and sticking your arm to the inner surface of the outside case to find it).

Use a flashlight to look for it, and if you remove it be careful not to tear it up, and by all means do not lose it!

A basic diagnostic test is to Key Dance (press this sequence within 5 seconds total), to run the washer through its paces.

Prewash Options --> Wash Time --> Prewash Options --> Wash Time. The display will start at 99 and count down to 0 (seconds) and run all valves, motor and pump directions and functions, and water inlets.

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.

Washing machine won't fill. i filled it by hand with water, it won't agitate either, only spins.


The inlet solenoid is probably bad. And it won't agitate unless it fills and stops filling automatically.

Samsung Washing Machine won't start


Your program controller unit is working but it must be ensured that there is output on every cycle to the desired output controls. So the inlet valve must work and the motor must run when the water level is triggered by the level controller. So use a meter to check before we can suspect the controller.

We pulled our stacked washer out from the wall to service the cold water hose filter on the back of the unit. when we pushed it back into it's location the washer won't start, won't fill...


I know you don't want to hear this, but either you did something to the hose filter or you didn't get it plugged back in correctly.

If you banged the water inlet valve in moving it back, it might be damaged.

Suggest you unplug everything and start over.

Water fills in, but wash cycle won't start. spin cycle works, changed motor still won't work


Its either in the lid switch or timer. Examine the lid switch. Try starting the wash cycle and press in on lid switch to make sure it activates. If the lid switch is good and you dont hear the motor trying to activate during wash than its in the timer. Does the timer advance? Please comment me back If you need further assistance.
