    On short cycle it only lasts about five minutes.Actually it is only about five minutes on all cycles. Model number is CEH1642FSO. It was purchased brand new on May 5 2007. At start of cycle water comes in, no washing done and then pumps out and in and out and end of cycle.

    You are not even close to being right. What a waste of money.

  • dovetaildad2 May 03, 2010

    The problem is solved no thanks to you. What more information would you need?

  • dovetaildad2 May 03, 2010

    Your advice to me cost me x number of dollars and didn't help. Am I supposed to help you for free? Not likely since it cost me again to have the problem solved correctly.

The pressure switch is probably not tripping causing the control to activate pump to pump out the water to prevent flooding. The timer or control can also be bad depending on the model of the washer. Specify the model number of the washer for accurate troubleshooting. Further information can also help easily determine the source of the problem and necessary action can be advised.

We base our findings with the information given; therefore, limited information limits the chance of determining the source of the problem.

How long the cycle last?

    It is indeed a faulty pressure switch because when the water level reaches about 4.5 inches from the bottom of the spin basket, the contacts for the water inlet valves opens and the contacts providing power to the other components closes. Failure of the water inlet valve contacts to open will cause flooding and the pump is activated to prevent it. On the other hand, if the contacts for the other components fails to close, the washer will not go through the wash and the spin cycles.

    My apologies for that; we are just making the conclusion based on the information that the client give us. Limited information limits the chance of having the cause problem determined. It's been more than a week since the problem is posted and nothing came from you after the last communication and it is assumed the problem is resolved. But we are still willing to help you; we just need a good and a constant communication to keep track of the development. Just keep in touch and provide further details regarding the problem.

You're a moron. This unit washes and dries. That's the whole point of it. Perhaps you should do some research before answering the question. the most likely cause is the water lever sensor.

Side load washer spins cycle problem.

Clean your drain valve. The water is not pumping out. This puts a strain on the machine.
Remove the bottom front cover to access the drain valve.

Kenmore 2 Way Tumble Action Front Load Washer

no thats two different problems. The rubber piece (boot) forms a seal to prevent the water from leaking out, that should be replaced. Water might have leaked and ruined the pump. At the end of all cycles is there still water in the tub? If so your pump is either clogged or has gone bad, and thats why the washer wont go into extract.

Whirlpool lhw0050pq washer will not spin

Possible your belt is loose; you have to unscrew the back after disconnecting electrical connection from wall socket. If the belt "gives" more than half an inch, you have to loosen the motor bolts and push motor upwards, then tighten the bolts very well. Try spin only to check, before closing the behind. It shd spin very fast.
