Smoke from washing machine

We had smoke from the washing machine at the end of the rinse cycle. I have not identified the source of the smoke. Any suggestions as to where to look first.

    I don't know the model, but it says "heavy duty - super capacity plus 2" on the front. It is a Whirlpool, roughly 10 years old.

Washer fills on wash won't fill on rinse. Does on old washer and new washer. Checked and plumber said not the plumbing. Help PLEASE


It seems that you are out of cycle; meaning you are washing on rinse phase and the you are not getting water on rinse because you are at the end of the cycle. Try this; set the washer to the end of the rinse cycle, let it spin and stop. then wait 1/2 hour then start a wash you will be at the beginning of a new wash cycle..

Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?


Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

Gets stock in rinse cycle


Rinse cycles are usually with cold water. If it cant fill with cold water, it wont go through the rinse cycle. Make sure it fills with cold on a normal wash. You may find its filling with hot only. Alternatively, the machine may not be pumping out properly, this will cause a similar fault. Check to see the machine is draining at the end of the wash. check the pump and the filters for blockages or lint etc clogging the hoses or pump.

Hi, The washing machine does the wash bit of the cycle, but on the rinse it just keeps filling with water and the water goes out of the waste pipe. Can you suggest what the probelm is please


Yes it is not measuring the water level or the valve is stuck. If it fills ok on the wash but not the rinse it must be one of the inlet valves. Identify which valve is for the rinse and check if it stuck open. If it is repalce it. The valves are at the end of the fill hoses. Hoe you have success. Thanks Tony

4E code keeps apearing


When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:

1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.
6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.


Also, please check the following:
• Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
• Check the water pressure.
