Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I just recently purchased a G.E. front load washer and dryer. My washer would run a cycle then sit with 1 min remaining on the display. I know this is an estimated time but it would sit like that for a couple of hours. One day I got frustrated and unplugged the washer when it was sitting like that, thinking it may reset itself. Did I ruin my washer or is there a way to fix this problem?

No you didnt ruin your washer, in fact that is the only way to reset the electronics. Just like the computer you are on, they sometimes glitch and lock up. Unplugging a washer doesnt harm it. It doesnt have a hard drive. If the washer continues to do this you will need to replace either the main computer or the display board.

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 Zanussi ZWD 1470W won't fill up with water. I

Story could be lengthly so in brief, check to see if drain pump is not blocked and if door latch is functioning correctly.(use a multimeter if you can). If it all measures out as good, then your control is faulty. Does the water fill up to the correct level when you start the cycle? Does the motor hum when trying to run. If so check the capacitor.

1 min remaining time takes 30 mins

The timer given a approximation of time left and because of balance the machine is fluffing the clothes to achieve a balance.

And for the guest it looks like you have junk in the pump. Need to access the panel below the door by removing the screws and getting a bucket, removing the large screw to the left of the pump and checking for debris in the filter, in the boot,behind the pump and look in the hole when the filter is out for damaged impeller or coins.

Mildew/Stagnant water smell in washer

you know, this does happen.

run it on a full cycle, warm, with either of these in solution.

baking soda, at 1/10 concentration

non chlorine bleach, at 1/6 concentration

you most likely need to do this more than once, until your nose is happy.

Also, consider doing this at least once every 200 wash cycles.

essential oils have same effect, and do a nice anti microbial as well.

we did this in commercial laundries all the time, as part of standard health code compliance issues.

Time remaining stays at 1 min for 20 min

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.

Check to see if any water remains in the machine . SOME MACHINES IF They DO NOT DRAIN OUT ALL THE WATER WILL CONTINUE TO run until all water is drained. Also check for suds in machine if machine senses suds it will try to re rinse the clothes.If your machine has a filter at the bottom clean it out .
