    i have a maytag neptune top load washer.  it will not finish draining the water.  the error code is nd.  i have already turned it off and tried to start a new wash cycle; i think i hear the water running, but then the machine just stops.  in the manual it says to check for a plug in the stand pipe.  how do i do this?

    I have the same problem i have had the pump out and all pipes are clean and unblocked. put it all back together and put it on drain and nothing happens! just a click then a minute later the knob turns round and round.



    Do you think i need a new pump? i would rather spend 25 quid on a new pump than 250 quid ona new machine!



    Please help

Plug off the wall first. The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; be prepared for a flood of water. If the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub. Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
You can also drain water from the tub thru the rear hose in the wall. Keep bucket handy. The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground. Do not push the pipe too much down the stand pipe.

Fixing the filter at the front bottom worked for me! It was clogged up with coins and junks. See this thread too.

    Same Ariston Margherita AL88 model which wouldn't spin. Only the dial kept spinning with an uninspiring click. I had all the water which was stuck in the machine drained and saw that the motor blades weren't working. Gave a light push at the blades with a stick

SOURCE: Ariston A1635 Margherita Control knob spinning

According to the instruction book - it appears the machine has been stopped mid cycle then re-started.
Switch machine off, turn control knob to a solid circle symbol (they are after every set cycle). Switch machine back on and lights will flash and program is reset. You can then select wash cycle as normal.

* Within 5 seconds of wake up, turn the selector knob to the far left cycle and press and hold Cancel and far left

7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The door lock will activate and the washer will fill then
tumble. Once tumbling has started, the boost heater will turn on.
8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The drain pump will activate draining out any water in the
tub and the washer will operate in high spin.
9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. This is a free position.

HI,

Unplug your washer and open up behind, you will see a thin tube coming down from the control panel (pressure switch to be precise) to the waste area below. Disconnect this carefully from the top, blow into it, air should pass through it should not be clogged; refit carefully. Before refitting, fit a similar tube to the pressure switch & blow - you should hear a click; if not there should be a problem with your pressure switch. Anyway refit your old tube & try the machine.

Wd2000 washer dryer combo timer advances around timer


If the program selector knob keeps turning, the machine needs to be reset.
Wait a few minutes for the drain pump to empty the tub, switch the washer-dryer OFF. Select one
of the Reset positions on the knob, then switch it back ON.
The link below will take you to the manual.
Hopes this helps.

My Zanussi Electrolux Essential 1200 washing machine ZWF12070W1


Most times unplugging a washer for 5 min or so will reset to factory. Some units just a quick unplug works too. But I'm not totally familiar with yours.
If it's going to be hard to unplug just turn off the breaker to it.
Hope this helps

Hi i have an indesit w 123s washing machine, that set to any program it doesnt move on it just does that setting,then if you turn the machine off and set it to end program you can reset to rinse and the...


hello try restting it before you bin it
  1. Turn the washing machine off with the on off button.
  2. Turn the selector knob to a dot, or any off position
  3. Turn the washing machine back on and watch for rapid flashing on the neon light
  4. Turn the washing machine off and select the new program (or maybe spin)
  5. Turn it back on and the new program should start
NOTE: Resetting the timer selector knob as shown above may stop the clicking round, but if your washing machine has a fault, the clicking round may return when your washing machine encounters the fault again. If your washing machine's program selector knob is clicking round on its own, then read the section above Washing machine stops with lights flashing hope it helps

Hi there....looking at the programe selector knob....you should see at three positions on the panel a black dot.....ok.......(1) close the door of the machine and switch on the power....(2) turn the programe knob to any one of the dot positions....(2) push the start button....a red indicator lamp should flash 3times and then remain steady indicating the program has been cancelled....(3) Now select a new wash program and push the start button....machine should operate ok....If not check the drain pump to ensure it is not blocked...or wiring loose ...or burned out....if this is ok...then your most likley looking at a module failure...

How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer


I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.
