Could be that the heater element is not working, therby prolonging the wash programme, if it works o/k on a 30 or 40 degree wash, then it is more than likely to be the j heater.
There could be other factors that could cause your prob.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks.

My moms washer is taking 3 hours to complete a 40 degree wash, what could be causing this


it sounds like the program/timer is on its way out ( it should click down the minuets then stop ) try another setting that you know will only take 30 mins or so and see if it takes longer. if it dose then program/timer is the problem ( the board behind the settings dile )

F1247td is taking much longer than suggested wash time, over double in some cases


Sounds like a heater issue, holding up the timer due to not getting to temperature. Could also be timer, or even pressure switch. Difficult to diagnose without testing individual wash cycles.

The washing machine is taking longer time


You can check that pump filter which is behind the base plinth, also check that the water entering the machine is at a reasonable pressure. If the machine is taking a longer time to wash and both inlet and the outlet of water is ok, it is more than likely a wash side heater fault. Basically, you set, for example. a 40 degree cycle, the heater does not operate and the water never reaches the required temp, the machine ventually times out on the heat phase and then moves on to the rinses or aborts to the end of the cycle.

Washing machine 11 years old is jumping on the wash cycles. EG instead of taking 25 mins its taking 10 mins to complete -clothes coming out wet unless manually turn to spin again


It is possible that the program is not running to the designed settings and so the program seems to skip the cycle.
The clothes come out wet because the spin cycle is not activated in the set program. Hence the program controller needs a check.

Stops mid cycle. Light flashes, cant get it to move on so have to start all over again


Hi there.
I have the same problem with my machine. Whatever program I select, the machine runs fine until it reaches 54 mins of the cycle remaining. To overcome the problem just to select a cycle that will not stop mid cycle, select a program which is less than 54 mins. I think the 40 degrees and quick wash select is the one to run with. The cycle is 45 mins, obviously less that 54 mins. The LED timer will display the cycle time. No problems with this cycle whatsoever. Not the total solution, but at least you're able to complete a cycle. After it's completed, I also run the spin program at 1200rpm. I hope this helps.
Regards, Ian.

My Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW top load washer only runs for the first few minutes of the cycle, it will not spin..it just stops..we've tried two cycles, the quick wash...it starts at 33 mins and then stops...


I'm and owner and will try to help. Are you handy and do you want to try a DIY fix?

From the wash times is sounds like the washer is agitating the wash load (tumblers are rotating the wash basket load) is that correct?

If so see if the machine will complete a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Set the Spin setting to Spin/Hang dry seting and start the cycle. It should take about 10 min complete. Does the Spin Only cycle complete with no clothes in the wash basket?

Some handy links if you are going to DIY.........Service Manual for reference.

Washing cycle on a 40degree op. takes more than


Don't forget that the reason you bought a front loading washer is for the efficiency of the washing. In other words, front loaders use less water and get clothes cleaner without all the harsh beating that the older agitator units do.

If you're using any of the pre-programmed wash cycles, you might want to tgry another cycle to see how it does for getting your clothes clean with a shorter cycle.

If you check your owners manual, it should provide the cycle times for the various wash and water temp settings. The colder the water you use, the longer the wash cycle typically is, since it takes more agitation and time to get clothes clean, especially with front loading machines. Hope this helps.

Time remaining stays at 1 min for 20 min


Hi,
This may happen if using the Super-eco program.

It is designed to extend the washing time / cycle, but is less intesive in rotations. It's more a long gentle soak than a quick scrubbing action.

Thank you for using Fixya! If this provided a solution, please rate as such. Thanks.
