Re: wash cycle stops

Yes you have a blockage on.or you waste pump is not working..

To check for blockage undue the filter to check.

Another way is lower the waste pipe to ground leve so any water in the drum is drained away by gravity.. if water does come out then your pump is most likely faulty

hope this helps if you need any help dont hesitate to ask

Zanussi zwf 1221 will not turn drum, the end light flashes the water goes into the drum and drains out when a program is selected but the drum will not turn at all. You can turn it by hand and it moves...

you need to check the pressure switch inside the washing machine there a small hose connected with the pressure switch to sense that the level of water inside the drum is ok if this hose blocked the machine will not run

Program selected ie 40c and washing machine starts. Appears to stop after the wash cycle, machine does not have water in it. The time which had moved down to around 48mins returns to start time 125mins....

It seems there is not accepting cold water on wash . The solenoid for the wash is probably open circuit. Check the solenoids with a meter for continuity. I bet you will find one open circuit. Then you can go get a new one and replace it. Might also be the pressure sensor failure, but that is not consistent with a successful rinse cycle. Make and model would have helped ..... Cheers

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Aeg 72630 update will not rinse during rinse cycle

If the drain lines were plugged, there may have been enough pressure on the pump to fault out. Make sure the sewer line is completely open, as well as the lines at the pump.
