Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

I don't think the washer is working properly because after the initial fill up no water is coming out of the holes on the paddles. It just rotates one direction, stops and then does it again during the wash cycle. How can rolling wet clothes around get them clean?

GE Washer WBB2090F1WW will not fill and will not spin. Where do I start to troubleshoot as these seem like unrelated problems? Thank you for any assistance.


Both are initiated by the programmer unit? Is the water supply getting to the machine, has a tap/valve inadvertently been closed. i If water is getting to it then if the programmer is working correctly the pump should trandport the water? If water is not being introduced the machine will not rotate.
I think the issues are both associated with a faulty programmer probably

Sw56app with DE message


On your Samsung washer, the "dE" error code typically occurs just after the rinse cycle. This will leave your machine filled with water as it does not drain because the washer thinks that the lid is open. Reset the cycle to properly drain the water then stop it before it fills up again.
Check to make sure nothing is preventing the lid switch from letting the cycle continue. Debris, such as lint or paper, could have fallen into the switch hole. Rust or an object could also block the hinges on the back of the lid. Clear anything off of the washer that may interfere with the lid switch then try to run the cycle again.

I have an Kenmore Elite HE5t, that is giving me an F-20, note after starting any cycle. I can not locate the owners manual. What should I do next?


The F20 code indicates that the control board is not detecting water entering the machine. If this is happening in the middle of the cycle even though the washer initially fills properly, then you could have a siphon problem through your drain hose. Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed. Check to see if the end of the hose is stuck way down the stand pipe. If it is, then the hose will need to be pulled out. Only about 6" to 8" should protrude down the stand pipe.

Check your fill hoses. Make sure that they are not kinked or clogged. If you are using FloodSafe supply hoses as shown in the image below, this could be causing your problem. This type of fill hose will not work on your washer.

Check the water pressure coming from your fill hoses.

I have a model lse7806ace maytag stackable washer/dryer unit. Initially, the washer would not do anything. I replaced the lid switch and it then filled and agitated at the same time... but when it went...


Ok , when you pull out the washer knob to start it the water fills . Can you stop the filling by pushing the knob in? if so the water valve is ok.
There is a sensing tube from the tub which connects to the pressure switch. This is what causes the water level pressure switch to shut off at the correct level. I would suspect this as they replaced the pressure switch and it keeps filling. If this is the case there is a small hole which will cause the pressure switch not to turn off the fill valves.

You can check this by removing the tube and submerging it in some water then blow in the tube while blocking the other end , if you see bubbles it is leaking and needs replacing.Hope this helps

When starting the washer, it occasionally will not fill


Check the drain hose. The open end of the pipe the hose drains into must be higher than the top of the washer's tub (usually 30 inches or so off the floor, minimum) or the water can siphon right out. The drain hose should not be a sealed connection to the drain pipe. Try to extend the drain pipe up to about 36 inches off the floor level.
