My LSQ8243H filled up with water and stopped.

These are my last 3 questions:

My LSQ8243H filled up with water and stopped. The timer doesn't respond in any position. Is there a reset on this model. I've tried using a pen to activate the lid switch.

- Didn't help. I spliced the 2 black wires together and cut the green one flush. No luck. Anything else?

Nov 18, 2009
- I have now replaced the timer. I emptied the water and it filled back up with water then stopped. I even tried it with the lid switch back on. What next??? When then water stops filling, I don't hear the motor come on at all.

Stops rinse cycle

Sears washer dryer commbo model 417.94712400 didn't stop filling with water and water went everywhere


Generally you could have two problems. Number one may be a sticking water solonoid that doesn't want to close after the fill cycle has stopped. Number two, if the machine has not started to agitate the clothes that means the timer has not reached that part of the cycle and is stuck in the fill mode. My guess is number two would be more likley, the timers **** out nowand then. Hope that helps

Water keep filling til machine overflow and need to turn of water inlet valve


if you have to shut off the water supply valve of the residence (water keeps flowing after turning off the washing machine or unplugging the washer), the failed component is definitely a stuck open water inlet valve (fill valve) of the appliance. If the water stopped by pushing the timer or unplugging the machine, another internal electrical control related problem exists, such as a faulty timer assembly or controller board, or a pressure system failure (water level detection/monitoring system) - failed pressure switch (rare), clogged air hose or tub air dome (common in GE top-load washers), disconnected air hose (common in frigidaire top load washers & GE/Frigidaire/Kenmore stacked washer/dryer combo units).

While a simple repair can be done by yourself for a failed inlet valve, usually for $25-$50 in parts/shipping (go to searspartsdirect.com or appliancepartspros.com to look up a replacement fill-valve using your washing machine model number), the water damage potentially caused by the flooding is more important to address.

I recommend contacting your insurance company if there's a bunch of water that flooded your home - the water can cause delayed warping of flooring or cause mold to grow in/beneath your carpets and walls if the water was not immediately noticed and cleaned up (within first few minutes of flooding) - they send out water remediation specialists to dry (if possible), or to repair the damage to your home.

Maytag Model A511 Cold water will not fill for wash or rinse cycles. Water is on, hoses are straight, and filters are clean. Water valve checks out OK (110V across terminals on both solenoids, slight...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Your testing of the solenoid was good. My question is this... when the timer stops do you still get the magnetic attraction? If I interpet this correctly; the answer is no. So we are dealing with a power problem. Power comes from the timer straight to the COLD solenoid. (Blue wire)

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/sect/i/e/j/iejjijajjf.gif (wiring diagram)

Power comes in to the TIMER from the lid switch on the red wire of terminal 12. It is supposed to be then routed to Yellow wire terminal 3 and the internal contacts of the timer (buss 14) connect power to the BLUE wire 5B. If your not getting power at the timer 5B / Blue wire lid closed the problem is inside the timer. Just make sure the timer connections discussed above are correct ON the timer.

Maytag PN 2.5639 timer NEW price is around $147.00 for factoryoriginal Used Avg $35.00. Your choice if you need a timer.

LSQ8243H does not agitate and spin after water was filled, but pump the water out. What is wrong?


If you hear motor running, then probably bad coupler. Lately I have been seeing more and more bad transmissions in these.

My LSQ8243H filled up with water and stopped. The timer doesn't respond in any position. Is there a reset on this model. I've tried using a pen to activate the lid switch. It's full of water right now,...


Check your lid switch. If the washer fills and agitates, but stops at the rinse cycle, or, if the washer fills, then stops and will NOT drain, this is a common symptom of a lid switch malfunction. The following link explains how to access and/or replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug.

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The part number for the model you have listed is 3949247. The average price is about $20 - $30. Prices differ between these sites, so shop around for the best price.

This is a very simple repair, but if you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: You do not need to drain the washer to replace the switch. However, if you still want to drain the washer, you can by-pass the lid switch in the following way:

1. Unplug the washer and open the operator console. (Refer to the link I provided above).

2. With the console open, locate the lid switch plug that is connected to the timer and unplug it.

3. Remove the exterior washer case enough to allow access to the lid switch under the top panel.

4. Remove the lid switch.

5. With the lid switch in your hand, cut the connector plug off the end, leaving about two inches of wire.

6. Cut the green wire (center wire) flush and take the two remaining wires (black) and splice together. Use a wire lug or electrical tape to shield. You have now made yourself a by-pass plug.

7. Take this by-pass plug and plug it back into the timer. The lid switch is now by-passed.

8. Reinstall cabinet and console.

CAUTION: The lid switch is a designed safety feature that prevents the wash tub from turning with the lid open. With the switch by-passed, this creates a hazard to the consumer. This is NOT to be considered a permanent fix. Use as a temporary means to drain the washer and use while awaiting replacement parts. Since the washer will not shut off with the lid open, use the timer to stop the washer BEFORE opening the washer lid.

Soon as i set cycle and swich on door light flashes open


hi,
The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. 


It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Thanks for your question.
