My salton sdw12 wont go to next stage after it fill with water. had do swich by hand but the didnt want to drain


Some faults cause the program to abort and the machine to go to a dead phase - a faulty wash motor or water heater fault may well be one of those. Also sounds like a problem with your water drain pump or drain tube blockage as in the event of a program aborting they usually pump empty. Sort the water drain problem, ie clear tube or filter, or replace the pump if seized, then try again.

Tip

Check the drain pump


One for the books: Kenmore HE3t starting throwing an FH. Did the normal things. Popped the top, pulled the solenoids body, the flow switch, and the pressure switch w/ the hose. I happen to have a Fluke, so I checked the water solenoids for shorts but they were good. Spun the flow switch, but got continuity (though it 'stall' a few times and the sound makes me think the wheel's bearings is probably going). Blew into the pressure switch, but it engaged at both pressures w/ good continuity. I even dunked the pressure switches hose in water to check for leaks w/ a blow test, but still good. So, I rinsed the flow switch in hot water and put it back together. No joy. I even started checking all of the connections into the boards. My wife asked what I thought was happening when the soap tray's lobe gear engaged, but no water flowed, and I happened to say, "I think the program checks to see if the drain pump is OK before it will pump water, so as to avoid flooding." Then it hit me. In the past I had an F2, pulled the drain pump, and found a baby sock in it. So, I pulled the bottom cover, and low and behold, the drain pump's Molex connector had wiggled its way out. Plugged it in, started it up, all is good.

Basically, it is a simple program. On starting a wash cycle, the program goes through several self-checks to ensure the machine can make all the way through the wash process. Just listen to all clicks gurrgles, and whishes. Among things like spin the main motor slowly, test the water solenoids, and verify the pressure switch can hit the 1st trip point, the drain pump must also 'respond' to a run command to ensure the unit does not flood.

Electrolux front loader EFLW417SIW that will fill & run for 3 minutes then the time remaining goes to 1 min. And turns off. I have power cycled / unplugged the machine.


Heater problems abort the wash cycle and end the program. May be faulty heater. Does machine drain and spin on spin only cycle? check pump if not - or motor.

GE profile wpre6150k2wt washer never fills up, water runs in and immediately drains and the cycle never stops. Status timer on front just has spinning lights


Washer fills with water then drains:

The critical question is. Is the water is just running down the drain but the pump isn't running. If it is being pumped out, and you can hear the pump running just the same as when it's emptying prior to spin then it could be aborting the wash because it is, or it thinks it's overheating. ( due to defective water temperature switch)

If the pump is failing to shut off then there is something wrong with the electronics. If your washer is a mechanical timer controlled device then you may have a sticking switch (which may explain if switching cycles does something for you). But if you have an electronic timer then you may be experiencing a board failure, where a cycle is being commanded when it is not intended to by design.


If water isn't being pumped out, but just draining away all the time, the washer will keep detecting there isn't enough water inside and top up with more.
Modern washing machines should be sophisticated enough to realize something's wrong and abort with an error, but if not, it may continue washing or rinsing for a short while before losing enough water to trigger more coming in again. It can get stuck on this cycle indefinitely and it's called siphoning.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine.
Try raising the hose and see what happens.
Also the drain hose should have some type of air gap where it fits into the stand pipe. It should not have an air tight fit.

Again Either it's siphoning down the drain due to an issue with the plumbing, it's overfilling, or also if it ( THE WATER) overheats then in some machines the software will employ a fill and drain tactic to cool down the water. The important thing is to work out which of these different faults is causing the problem by careful observation.


Other switch's to check would be the water inlet valve and the water pressure switch with a multi meter for continuity or OHMS.

And in some modern washers that come with THERMISTORS:
One symptom of a washing machine that thinks it's overheating and thus fills and drains at same time ( possibly because of a faulty thermistor) is if it's filling with cold water and pumping out at the same time. This is covered in this articleWashing machine fills and drains at same timealthough the same symptom can be caused by other faults.

By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!
