Timer won't count down

My calypso washer acts just fine except the time counts up and down on all cycles it will get to 12 minutes left and jump back to 13 minutes and down to 11 minutes and back up to 13 again. Other wise it performs all functions except the actual time.

Re: timer won't count down

Service bulletin says the washer times can do that as the washer senses variables changing and all times are estimations and its normal .if the washer detects failure it will set a trouble code hope that helps

Electrolux washer playing up!

Remove the top panel, there should only be 2 or 3 screws on the back of the panel, then slide the top panel back about 1/4 inch and it should lift off. Look to see if the belt has come off. Post your results back.

Washer won't do spin cycle....and won't start any cycle

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the washer fills but does not agitate or spin then you can check if the lid switch is fine. You can jump start the lid switch by connecting both the wires with each other or use the third wire to act as jumper between the two. After this if the problem is solved then replacing lid switch is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Spin Cycle

I just replaced my second motor control board because of the same problem. Mine starts to spin but never reaches speed and stops, then it repeats. It can do this for hours. I think we are overloading the machine washing area rugs. The fuses are OK on both failed boards and nothing is burned and all caps look normal. At $150 a pop, I would rather replace some components if I knew which ones. For a quick fix, the new board worked for me.

LG WD-324RHD stops at 6 minutes left in drying

Your timer has gone bad and you need to replace the time. Best bet is to get a Technician out there but you can do it yoursel. It is behind the face plate where it counts down the time

Ultima WF840 won't go from wash to rinse cycle

the pump is blocked, so the sensor detects that the machine has not emptied in the allocated time, so this will reset the time.... the pause is because it knows there is a probblem getting rid of water.

location: bottom right near the motor. ensure you tip the washer as far forward as you can so you can get a bucket under in order to prevent flooding.

hope this helps
