At first the machine would start and you could here it starting to fill with water but then it would stop and the light would go out but if you turn the **** to spin you would here the water draining out so we pulled the back off and the belt was off , we bought another belt put it on and we tried to turn it manually but the belt keeps commining off

Ahhh..that is most likely due to the belt slipping off the pulley, due to the tensioner being mis aligned or sloppy..tip the unit back around 45 degrees, and see if the tensioner pulley is aligned, or loose?

check all the bolts down there while you're at it.

be careful to place something solid under neath the chassis when you get underneath.

Water won't cut off when filling... Hoover Galaxy A6834


Hi Steveb6723 ,Just read your posting.Now here is a little test I need you to preform so I can tell if the problem is your water valves or your pressure switch system.Now 1st turn it to a normal cycle and only select the cold fill.Pull the knob out so it starts to fill.Now turn the machine off at the power point,Does the water stop filling straight away?If it does select hot fill and pull the knob.When it starts filling on hot water turn the power off again and see if the water
stops straight away.Please reply and tell me if the hot or cold water continued to flow when the power was off.Looking forward to your reply.

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

F&P washing machine:GW709 doesn't cut out when filling


could b pressure switch tube is blocked or your control board with the pressure switch attached is faulty. empty water from machine, remove pressure switch hose from control board, blow thru tube to remove any blockages, refit tube. turn on cycle, select low water level, push start, after about 30sec"s push start again, that should stop it filling straight away. if the water stops push start again to continue filling. if it doesnt stop filling after restarting the cycle then it is your control module.if the water doesnt stop filling after the 30 sec stop it is the water valves. by the way what country do u live in because $120 seems to b alittle too expensive. please reply 4 more help.

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

Kenmore ht4 front load washer


this seems to be a control panel issue. if water valve switches, try hot /cold water combos to see if it will start filling
