The issue is within the pressure switch and it needs replacing to address it. The wash side circuit in the pressure switch is closed during the drain and spin increments after the main wash, first rinse, second rinse, and extra rinse increments. When the water level drains below the wash full level, the circuit will close and energize the pressure switch input. The machine control interprets this as a signal not to energize the water valve outputs to measure how quickly the washer is draining.

In your case, the water valve outputs are energized because the machine control did not detect the wash side circuit in the pressure switch close. Replace the pressure switch.

Remove the rear access panel to access and replace the pressure switch. It is mounted on the bracket molded as part of the pump assembly. Place a towel beneath the pump and remove the plastic bag covering the pressure switch.

Press in the locking tabs on the back of the pressure switch then pivot the pressure switch off the pump bracket.

Install the new pressure switch in reverse of the aforementioned steps and reposition the plastic bag onto the pressure switch.

My Kenmore 500 top loading washing machine wont work right. sometimes it will work and other times it wont. I will put a load in it and sometimes when it hits the rinse cycle it seems like it gets stuck...


for the top loading washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, if clog your drain pump of some hair pins,cotton buds or coins or any small item,that the cause of water stuck,and it will long time draining or totally not running the drain pump.and its cause of stop of cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time,because after washing the pump must be on to remove water before start the next cycle.and the unit top load have drain pump you must be up the drain hose up to 90cm from floor lever to make the water lever is make in normal,the water automatically goes out by drain pump.
and for unbalance most of all top loader have problem in unbalance, the main reason is overload or the type of cloth you wash.

I have LG fyzzy logic 6.5 kg WFS65AO1DCT and it keeps loading and draining water even when in spin


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
This happens on new installations usually. The drain hose must be higher than the highest fill height of the washer. If the drain hose is to low it will create a siphon effect and drain the machine. Next is the drain hose is to tight in the standpipe. The standpipe is your homes plumbing. If the drain hose does not have an air gap aroung it, it can cause a siphon effect and start draining your machine as it fills. If none of these are the problem and your drain pump is running at the same time it is filling you will need to replace the control. For top load machines follow this video and for front load machines follow the tutorial.

My whirl pool washing machine tries to fill up but never fills up


This means it is stuck between the spin and rinse cycle and the time piece in the housing unit might need replaced if the knob itself isnt stripped also make sure it is on small or large load..

Running water


Sounds like your stand-pipe has fell over,located behind machine that the drain hose goes into.This pipe must be vertical,and secure.The top of the washers drain hose loop that goes into the stand-pipe, should be as high as your soap dispenser.If this is not the problem then your water pump must be pumping the water out all the time.Can you hear the pump? If so, some faults can force the washing machine into a constant cycle of filling with cold water and pumping the water away if it thinks the washing machine is overheating (possible faulty thermistor).Hopefully its only your stand-pipe causing the loss of water.Lets know how you get on.Good luck.

Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts


Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.

F&P smart drive 601 washing machine will not advance from wash mode to rinse or spin mode


on those washers the waste water pump will get hair and **** wrapped around the shaft behind the pump fins. pull the washer forward and tip it back so you have access to under the front. on the right fron you will see a little pump. unplug the power clip and the ground wire. there will be a plastic tab you must bend a little so that you can twist the whole motor, not just the fin on the back, counter clockwise and remove. if you have water in the machine it will come pouring out. your machine will not rinse or spin if the waste water pump does not pump out enough water in its alloted time. when you have the motor out unscrew the pump fin cup thing and pull all the stuff off the pump. good luck.
