Check that it is actually heating the water in there. If the heating element has gone, then it will fill, then wait while it heats up the water needed - which it can't, so will just sit there full of water.

Usually involves taking the front off, which isn't easy.

Try it on a rinse and spin and see if it does anything, then you will know better what part is actually causing problems.

My LG front loading washer makes a train noise during the rinse cycle. What could be the cause?


if it is right after the drain cycle; it then goes into a spin. It then starts to fill with water for the rinse while the tub is still turning. The water entering the tub while the tub is spinning, cleans the tub of soap and the water going through the holes in the tub are causing the noise. It is normal if only in the rinse cycle.

Spin is not working in my lg washing machine


See if there is still some water left in the tub, which would indicate a drain issue. A front load WM will not go into high speed spin if it detects excess water in the tub. If there is water, there may be a small door at the bottom of the front that leads to a drain pump cleanout. You would not believe the things I have found that can block a drain pump. Have a wet vac and towels ready, because all the water remaining in the WM will have to be sucked out as you open the cleanout. If your problem is not excess water, it could be a control issue or a problem with the stator motor at the rear of the tub. You would probably need a service tech to check it out then.

Do Frigidaire Front Load Washers require H&E detergents?


The answer is YES. Nearly all front loader washers built for consumers are rated as high efficiency because of the small amount of water and electricity they use. This small amount of water, coupled with a wash tub that does not agitate continously, followed by a high speed final spin of 1200 rpms or higher, all equate to an overall energy savings as compared to a conventional top loader. Regular detergent is formulated to be used in a wash tub with a 35 gallon capacity. So, if you use that same detergent in a wash tub that uses 5 to 7 gallons of water (such as yours), you are in effect putting about 5 times the concentration in the washer. This can lead to soap scum build up which causes odors, soap deposits that remain in your clothing and can cause skin irritation, "SUDS" errors that stop the wash program due to too much suds in the wash tub, and premature wear on the drain pump motor and seals. In fact, most front loaders will have a disclaimer added in the owner';s manual that explains this. Most manufacturers will also void the warranty if it is discovered you are using improper detergent. Use HE detergent and pay attention to the label. Some of them are double (2X) and triple (3X) concentrated. I hope this helps you.

Maytag Neptune front loader won't rinse/spin


you have something clogging your pump
remove the back panel
clamp the tub to pump hose or deal with all the water when you remove the pump - three bolts
open the pump - three screws
remove the object blocking the impeller
check tub to pump hose and pump to drain hose thoroughly
reassemble
be careful of the machine opening once you remove the rear panel it is razor sharp !

Washer tub won't empty even thoufh whole cycle done


you need to get the drain hose out and lower it into a bucket and let gravity do the rest, all the hose has to be lower than the water level in the machine though, and get the drain pump and sump checked out for blockages after.

LG WM0642HW washer gives error during spin cycle and stops.


I have this problem and you can find the solution on this same web page by searching. It is likely the Hall Sensor that needs to be replaced (see proflevy posting on Jul 16, 2008). According to the postings, it is from soap build up on the sensor and replacing it costs $18 for the part and is easy (many responses on this). I am waiting for the part and will try to fix mine soon.

Neptune-is water supposed to remain, after wash is finished, between tub and outer shell


if you hear water when you spin the basket,that is the front tub balance ring.it is filled halfway with water in order to assist mach in balancing load.that is a normal sound.the mach may also leave some water between the basket and outer shell depending on lengh of drain hose.as long as the clothes do not come in contact with the water it is fine.

Will not fill


sure, might be as somple as your using hte wrong soap. you MUST use an HE detergent. regular detergent creates too much suds for these smachines and result in the control panel displaying "sud", or innadequate drain issues. if you are using hte correct soap then next thing to check would be the pump hosing for debris blocking pump assy.Humming sound" sounds like a pump thats trying to work but cant get past your debris
1. remove the lower acess panel with (3) torx 20 screws
2. the pump is located right in front you see ascrew type handle on fron of housing
3. unscrew the handle and clean debris from housing nad return the cover. check for spin now
4. if water remains in the tub after drain/spin, ther will be water in hte machine, so try tipping machine back, using hose pinch off pliers, or what i do is open a white trash bag in front of pump assy, so when i open the bag catched it all
