Hi You will need to remove the casing. It could well be your pump seals worn.

Not enough water supply F8E1 in a front load washer

Long fill error code if you have flood safe water hoses replace with regular hoses, this may sound stupid but I have seen this in the field make sure water is turned on, other possible reasons bad inlet valve or no power to valve from control, front load washers are notorious for rubbing a hole in the tube that goes to the pressure switch this switch is what tells the control to output power to the inlet valve also make sure the drain hose hasn't fallen to the floor. Quickest way to eliminate some things start with an empty washer after door locks unlocks and locks again the basket will rotate a few times then water should enter the machine fill to a level in the the basket that is barely above the bottom holes in the bottom then stop this eliminates control and inlet valve , if unit continues to fill and you get water half way up the door glass probably a hole in pressure switch tube I very seldom see a pressure switch go bad hopes this helps.

Miele Touchtronic W1213 Front Load Washer: The washer keeps adding and then draining water continuously. One time, the cycle ended and the machine continued to add water and drain endlessly....until I...

hi - If I remember correctly this particular series had a time related sequence built into the programme, whats happening is the timer has picked up the false readings when the pressure activates the switch.

Suggestions to look into - leave power off & turn water back on - does water run into the machine (faulty valve); turn power on initiate a cycle water runs, then turn power off - is water still running? (faulty valve)

From experiences on the field, theres a slim chance that the pressure tube has a hole in it from the vibrations over time. This effect will not create enough pressure in the tube to activate the pressure switch, the only other problem would be the pressure switch itself.

My washer is flashing f33 what do i do

F33 Leak. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Check your inlet valves for block, where the water comes to machine OR
If the control has turned the water valves on, and after 8 minutes, the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off, and the error code will flash.

Press 'pause' and 'cancel' twice to clear the display. Mains off the wall.
1. Check for crack or holes in the washer tub and pressure switch hose, which runs from the
bottom to the pressure switch.
2. Replace components if necessary.

Water is leaking out from the bottom of my Maytag top load washer Model A612, my floor is soaked! do I need a new washer or should I unplug it, tip it over & see what's wrong? thanks for yor help.

remove two screws from the front panel, tilt out and remove or there may be two clips under the front panel near the sides that need be depressed with a putty knife. Run a load and see where the water is coming from . The clamps that hold the hoses on the pump and tub rot off quite often.

Detergent remains at bottom of door and does not all come out of dispenser, excessive vibration during spin cycle. machine is level and solid

first i would check the water pressure.either too low to the machine or your house pressure.turn off water and remove the hoses.look inside the valves and there is a screen.if its dirty clean it.with the hoses off hold them above the sink and turn on do you have good pressure.if alls good i would think it your intake valve.good luck!

Why does the detergent compartment hold water after the cycle is complete?

It might be due to not having the washer properly leveled front to back and side to side, thus allowing some water to remain in the detergent dispenser. Check the washer for level with a good 3 foot or longer level and check across the front and back and then on each side and finally from each front corner to the opposite back corner. Level the washer by raising or lowering each leveling foot on each corner on the bottom of washer (or the pedestal units, if so installed) until the washer is properly leveled in all directions.

Once you've got the washer properly leveled, you shouldn't have much of a problem with residual water in the dispenser.

LG front load washer -- water leaks out the bottom of the door -- if I push on the door while its running, the water slows/stops leaking...

First, clean off the bottom of the door glass where it contacts the gray tub gasket when the door closes. Any hair or other build up can result in leakage. Second, if that does not completely solve your leak, you can move the location of the spring which holds the tub gasket from the very bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position). Third: Sometimes, the reason you get a leak is due to the installation. If the washer was pushed into place by applying pressure in the center front of the washer, the outer front panel can be slightly deformed (inwerd) resulting in leakage from the door. If that is the case, sometimes you can remove the outer clamp and outer part of the gray seal and pull out on the front panel to correct the situation if it is not too severe, rather than replacing the entire front panel.

No pressure in my power washer

the problem is that the pump is manufactured with a cheap plastic gear inside the pump which wears out relatively quickly because A: its cheap plastic riding against steel gears and B: they used a very thin oil instead of heavy grease to lubricate the gearbox. Soulution: get a new pump because this one is junk.
