I had a similar problem with my Kenmore washing machine. What I had to do is remove the Timer and clean/blow it out with compressed air and then I re-installed it and it worked good again. The timer is the dial that you turn to set the washer cycles(clicks). It seems the dust gets into the timer assembly and causes it to short out. Now if your waher has digital controls than that is a different story. If it is a mechanical timer try this out before calling a serviceman. A new timer is around $200.

Fisher and Paykel 7.5 washing machine keeps powering off during rinse and spin cycles


The pump has a thermal safety cut out on it.
If the pump gets too hot it cut out.
Just put a new pump in and your all going again.

Won't switch from wash to spin...


You have a bad motor. Your motor turns in one direction to wash and the other to spin. One directions windings are bad. This is why it is drawing currant so bad. Sorry, seems I'm always the bearer of bad news.

Will not spin on any rinse cycle


Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Freezer before Rinse


you hav'nt said if it drains. the problem just may be that you have plumbed drain hose onto a spigot on the sink drain and spigot is blanked off
