Re: Washing machine it shuts down water filling cycle

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

My Simpson eziload 750 will not shut off the water during cycles when supposed to

Start machine as normal. After a few seconds of filling, press the pause button. Water coming in should stop immediately. If it hesitates then stops or does not stop at all you have a faulty inlet valve. Change it.

GE washer wont drain or spin, lid switch has been replaced and so has the timer. At the start of cycle it fills and aggitates properly.

If the machine tries to spin for a few seconds and shuts down because the tub is full of water, then - The first thing I would do is check the pump. You may have something blocking the pump or the pump could have failed. Newer models built within the last 10 - 15 years must drain their water down first before they are able to spin.

Does it operate properly if you or something holds the switch down? If yes, then extend the end of the lid switch with hot glue, epoxy, or silicon glue to allow the switch to be pressed sown further. You can also build up the contact area under the lid if you choose--same result.

Maytag neptune,shuts down within 10 seconds after start button is pushed

If it has worked for a year and your able to choose different cycles with the same result. It seems to functions with one common element failing. If the control unit cant detect how full the machine is with water it will shut down. Sounds like a water problem steming from your pressure switch. Not sure which model you have but usually it will sit on the water pump or under the console with a clear hose if under the console. If so a quick test of attaching an ohm meter set on continuity then blowing lightly to see if under pressure the switch reacts by closing if it doesnt then the switch is bad.

Shutting down on rinse cycle

Hi this could means that you may need to replace the washing machine bearings. Once the bearings are bad, the motor overheats and it will automatically shut down after the first rinse.

Washing machine it shuts down water filling cycle

First thing to check is the filter,
open the bottom pane (3 screws on bottom front lip)
in the cent is a large removable filter ,
set a pan or rags under it ,there will be water.
clean out any debris an be sure the pump impellers move freely.
let me know if that fixes it.

re original issue, see if R11 is burned. if so, need to change R11 resistor and associated triac, and probably wax motor so it won't do it again. temporary fix just cut out R11, door won't lock. if your model won't spin that way, depress actuator for microswitch from door wax motor. instructions on web.

Neptune MAH3000AWW will start to fill when start is pressed, but stops seconds later

either a faulty pressure switch / pot or faulty controller - either way you will need to call someone in.
