My washer wont rinse or spin and when its finished washing it gets to rinse cycle and beeps and error code e4 comes up i emptied clothes and it still wont work

No make or model came through with your question... so the FIRST GUESS... is ... THIS IS A NEW RELATIONSHIP with a "HE" (HIGH EFFIEIENCY) washing machine.

You can CONTAMINATE your machine quite badly by not using THE RECOMMENDED "HE" rated detergents... & CLEANERS.

These new machines will rapidly deteriorate in performance... if the APPROPRIATE (HE) detergents ARE NOT USED.

Sensors sample the detergent/dirt in the water to enable the wash cycle to adjust wash time & water levels...

By NOT FOLLOWING the INSTRUCTIONS you are risking PERMANANT DAMAGE to these sensors...

Read your OWNERS MANUAL... There-in (I believe you will find
HE cleaners (not cheap) are recommended to ATTEMPT to restore performance...

Else you are looking at an EXPENSIVE SERVICE CALL on a NEW MACHINE.. Who knows... MAYBE it will be covered under your WARRANTY... Stranger things have happened (these days).

Good luck with that.

My Whirlpool Duet ht Washer starts washing fine, it drains then it starts flashing FH and wont take in water for the rinse cycle. It does this for every cycle, it will wash fine but after it drains and is...

The first thing I would check is shut off the cold water valve at the wall and remove the hose at the washer.carefully pry out the little screen in the inlet and clean well,reconnect hose and turn water back on FH is a water inlet issue I am hoping that what is happening is that when the washer starts its wash cycle it is probably filling with warm (hot) and cold water at the same time even though it might be mostly hot,but when it comes time to rinse (cold water ) there is not enough to make the computer happy and you get your FH error.. Hope this Helps,,If not your probley looking at a new fill valve assy

Hotpoint Aquarious WF630 error code H20. It will fill and wash with both hot and cold water but when it gets to rinse and spin the error code flashes. It will however spin if i manually change the...

H20 does in fact indicate a problem with the incoming water supply.
Check the inlet hoses/s to make sure they are not kinked or restricted in anyway, more so when the washer is pushed back.#
Make sure tap/s are fully turned on, make sure you have good water pressure.
It would also be a good idea to check the gauze filters in the inlet to the valve/s.

Our Smart Drive 601 wont rinse or spin properly and keeps changing its own settings and pauses

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean (ref manual). 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 (4 to 6 inches maximum) Of course some direct the hose into sink, fine. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your problem will be back for someone else to solve.
