    You will need to replace the timer control.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First you did not mention the manufacturers name and model no# for your washer for exact information. However, this occurs mainly due to things: water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet valve has gone bad it won’t be able to shut off even when the electricity has been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won’t tell the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that you’ll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment with the manufacturers name and model no# for your washer for further assistance.


Thanks

    To start with try to clean the lint. You can do it when its in spin lift up the lid and check for lint there. If still its not resolved and you hear a humm/buzz sound then its the motor that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


    Thanks

    I just tryed it again. I lower the hose to empty the tub. Then I rasied the hose and started a new cycle. Again filled with water and it doesn't start washing, what do you think?

    As I said earlier it can be the hose and/or the motor thats not running as the washer just fills and wont do anything else. Please do accept the solution
    if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.








    Thanks

Check the lid switch. Some units use a safety lock out. If it is not working then the unit will not drain or spin.
