Repeating cycles When the timer on my washer reaches about 39 min, it will get down to 36 min and then go back to 39 min. It does this anywhere between 3 - 6 times. Is this normal?

Re: repeating cycles

I had a technician come to see my washer today and I was told this is normal, these machines have many sensors and if they are not balanced to spin they stop and redistribute the load to it can spin balanced. It is also normal for a load to take up to 2 hours to complete if the load if big with larger items such as towels, jeans etc.

Its stops when it reaches in 39 minute the function set on cottons what is the problem

Try resetting the mainboard by removing the wall plug overnight. May also be a faulty lid switch if it is a top loader.

    Mah9700 gets stuck at 8 min unless we run a very small load

    It is possible that when the load is more the drive pulley slips and does not get to the set RPM. This can be due to many reasons and so it can be related to no drain of water and thus making the timer to count down. Check the drive by removing the bottom plate, roll it with your hands to check for friction.

    Kenmore series 80 washer won't drain after wash cycle

    Try the 'drain' portion of a few of the other cycles (heavy, perm. press, delicates) and see if it will drain/spin there. You can also try advancing the timer slowly through the 'spin' portion to see if it kicks in anywhere.

    If it will rinse and spin in the other cycles, you most likely have a bad timer.

    Hope this helps.

    Maytag neptune MLG2000AWW does not turn off at end of spin cycle

    d sounds as if your having a timer issue here. not recognizing the end of cycle and entering a new one ( bad timer).. as far as time of unlocking this is normal, theres a wax motor holding the door shut for i believe 3 min's.. and the water sloshing sounds is also normal they use a "water filled" balance ring around the perimeter of tub to help with the overall balance of machine
