The sensor may have failed, resulting in infinite fill time.

SOURCE: will not wash, spin or drain out water

Use a plastic container that will fit in the machine and bail the water out into a bucket, only takes a few minutes.
If it has a removable panel at the front take it off and that will expose all the pumpout hose,the pump and the undercarriage of the machine.
You can drain the remaining water from the machine by removing the large rubber pump-out hose from under the plastic bowl, use a bucket to catch the water.
Check under the washing machine for a belt that may have broken or just come off.
hope this helps you

SOURCE: Wash cycle not filling with water

Does the washed show an error?

Check all hoses in back. Remove them from washer and ensure water is coming from lines (drain into bucket).

Unplug washer for several minutes, then try again.

SOURCE: when starting washer it automatically

The water level is control from a pressure sensor located internaly on the of the washer and is connected to the drum cy a water plastic hose.
As the water levlel enter in the drum and start rising the same hapen also to hose. By rising in the hose is plessing up the air that was trap in it and as it resiing the pressure rising too. That is how the water level pressure sensor works.
So the posible problems are:
1.The water hose is goccled by something so the pressure sensor switch is stay on always. So you need to clean the hose entry, first you can try to make a wash by adding manual water and select a program at the very hot so by this their is very good chance that the dirt will be desolved and the hose will be open again.
2. If the baove does not work the you need to open the top of the washer and by finding the other hose end secured on pressure swuich remove it and blow air in it so it will be open.
3. If do this and sill have the problem the check the pressure switch which probably is stcuck on and need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Maytag Auto Load-Sensing Washer does not fill

Did you ever get an answer - all I see are ads :-(

We have the same problem. Not enough water to rinse - even with extra rinse selected. Even our laundry comes out the color of the laundry detergent. I'm sure this is a result of government regulations to reduce water usage. We'll contact Maytag tomorrow.

SOURCE: H2low whirlpool top load washer turns on, fills with water for a second and stops...keeps making a sound on the sensing mode but does not get to wash mode to continue washing.

if the washer is only one month old contact whirlpool and they will give you a service company in your area to contact and it the repair will be free of charge as long as the problem is with the washer and not something that you are doing wrong or something wrong with the way that it is installed, the unit is under mfg. warrnty for one year from date of purchase.
things to check before calling would be, water connections correct? hot to hot cold to cold. are both the hot and cold water turned on?
kinked lines?
i would call a whirlpool certified repair company, they will send a guy out and if its broken they will fix it for free.

My fisher and faykel washer model wa37t26gw2 does not fill, and will not drain. diagnostic says plugged drain hose, but it is clear from pump to diverter

Your question does not make sense. You say it does not fill but then you say it will agitate. How can it agitate if no water has filled? Does it beep and give an error code/ If so what is the error?

Front load washer, try to spin, but stops altogether and want wash it fills up but want wash

Make sure that you don't over load the washer. As it starts to spin back and forth it is sensing the load balance as the clothes fall back and forth. If it doesn't sense a balanced load because the clothes can't fall back and forth it will not start the wash process. Refuse your load and try again.

My washing machine fills up with water but does not continue the wash cycle. Sometimes when you slam the lid the washer will continue the wash cycle to the end. Other times the washer stays filled up...

Sounds like the lid safety switch is either out of adjustment, or needs replacement.

Most washers will fill with the lid open, but no continue a cycle where the drum or agitator spin, unless it senses the lid is closed.

Amana washer stuck on sensing

What is the model number of the unit?

Washer will not stop filling and overflows.

A possibility is the pressure switch that senses water level is bad or the tube that connects it to the outer tub is split or loose and leaking air. If this is a timed-fill rather than a level-sensed fill, the timer may be in trouble. The washer top needs to be raised up to look for the level switch.
Remove the agitator and watch the plastic hub at the top of the shaft to see if it moves when the washer is set to wash. If it does, remove the plastic hub and see if it is cracked or the interior splines have been torn--if so, replace the hub.

Washer is rinsing with hot wateer nomatter what temp. setting is used. I have tried to switch hoses twice now, no difference in rinse but now on correct wash temp.

The MAH5500 series washers have automatic temperature control functions so the washer can control water temp regardless of water heater settings and other factors. I would say either your definition of "hot" is not truly "hot" (over 110 degrees), or the washer's ability to sense has failed (which would also affect fill temp on "wash" fills also). If someone has worked on the washer recently, maybe they reversed the wiring to the water valves inside the machine? ATC temps are as follows: Cold 70-90, warm 90-110, and hot is unregulated at 110 degrees and up. These are normal temp ranges for ATC controlled machines, and are completely safe for fabrics.
