Question about Washing Machines

Machine wont start

When I push the power button then the start button the machine wont start (does not fill with water). It seems to be an intermitent problem as the other day it did start filling so I paused it opened the machine, put my clothes in, but when pushing resume it didn't start again. My theory is that it thinks the lid is open so it wont go into cycle, but I cant find any machanical indicator for the the machine to know when the lid is open or closed. Any ideas?

    It is Fisher and paykel GW608. So if it isnt the lid actuator that is stopping the water from filling, any ideas of what could be? Web site said there is supposed to be a tech manual in the control panel but I can't find one.

    Thanks for the advice. There is no error lights indicated; the cycle either goes through the whole cycle without a hitch or it just wont start to begin with (although all the lights indicate it is ready to start). I'll have a look at the blalance switch as you suggest and see if I can find a problem there. I managed to do a successful load yesterday but that was more fluke than anything, 95% of the time it wont start. Thanks again for your advice.

    I have a wwwse3160aoww ge profile washing machine. I used it this morning and after it finished washing, I put a big comforter and tried to start it. It would not power on. I removed the comforted and started it again, it is the same problem. Changed the power outlet, but no response. Any ideas?

    model and manufacture???? your on the right track i believe, it wont work without lid actuator activated, wash or spin any way, should always at least fill with water though

Why does drain motor start when pushing the start button on the door before the door is closed?


It's almost certainly the float switch in the bottom of the machine. In the bottom is a polystyrene 'float' that is either active due to water in the bottom or is faulty. Tip your machine to the side and remove water and try again, bridge or replace switch is also an option

Washer will not fill with water when the start button is pushed.


Have you checked the water pump? I would say it is that or the button may be defective.

Fisher and paykel smart drive top loader , Wont fill properly .


Well where to start .....
This brand has a hell of a lot of quirks.
The first thing to try is this : With the power on at the wall and the machine off ,push and hold down the start button , then push and hold down the power button you may hear up to 3 beeps at this time (hold down the buttons for 5 seconds then release) turn machine off and turn it back on and just push start button.
What this does is re programes the computer ,then just leave machine to run cycle

As the solenoid should should remain power free and closed until the programmer tells the circuit board to switch on the power, it could conceivably be either or both of those things, though I feel the chances are greater the circuit board is at fault.

Washer powers down during wash cycles


It is most likely a very slow fill problem ,either the cold or hot water supply is restricted and the machine cannot sense the right water temp. and will shut down .

Machine cannot wash properly with a small amount of water.

Ckeck ,the screens in the water valve or at the hoses at the top where the faucets are ,clean them or replace them but never leave them out .
