You will have to check and see if you are getting power down to the motor.

If it will not spin in any cycle it is like the motor or the wiring to the motor

Here is a link to your washer model wvsr1060a0ww.

Hello flomom,

There are a couple of things that may be wrong:

  1. It could be that the water fill/inlet valve may be damaged and needs to be replaced.
  2. The water level control switch may have taken a permanent vacation and will need to be replaced.

In my opininon, I would check the water inlet valve first. Hoever, if you are not used o this kind of repairs, I would recommend you get a qualified professional to repair this.

If you like to try a do-it-yourself, then you may need the schematic diagram of parts for your machine.

You may want to invest in floodcontrol to prevent this from happening in the future. And while you’re at it, I suggest replacing the rubber fill hoses on your washer to the steel braided hoses.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further as best I can. I am here at your service.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

    It looks like a problem with the pressure/fill switch. I would recommend you get a qualified technician to do this, if you are unfamiliar with assembly/disassembly of electrical goods.

Sounds like the water valve sensor is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced

    If
    your washer won't stop filling up with water and overflows the tub,
    check for one of these problems:

    1)
    Turn off the electricity to the washer. If the water *stopped* filling
    when power was disconnected, the problem would usually be in the
    control system of the machine. If the water still continues, then
    the plunger in the water valve is either stuck open or slow to close.
    Try turning the water faucets off an on a few times. This small
    jolt might unstick the water valve. If not, it will need replacing.

    2)
    There could be a problem with the water level switch. Call in a
    repairman if you are unable to check it yourself

    3)
    There is a pressure switch hose that is attached to an air dome.
    This switch tells the washer that there is water in the tub and
    allows the agitator to start.

    - Remove the control panel and you will notice a small hose. See
    if it popped off of the air dome. If it did, secure it with a zip
    tie.

    alright, try the machine a few times and see if it starts to work from empty. It most likely is just a sensor that will need to be replaced if the problem continues, if it seems to be working after multiple tries, then leave it be and if it starts acting up, contact me directly on here and I will help you with getting a new sensor, thanks

Water fills at a trickle during rinse cycle and NEVER fills up.

Cold water won't stop before rinse cycle


if it fails to stop running only at the rinse part of the cycle it is probably in the timer as the solenoid valve has to cut the water off when the washer fills for the wash cycle too. fills for wash cycle and cuts off water, washes and drains, refills for rinse cycle and water just keeps running? does this every time you run it? that's in the timer. bad solenoid (water inlet valve) would keep running even on wash fill up. hope this helps.

Will fill but not wash or spin


Does the motor run?  Does the water get pumped out at the end of wash cycle or during the rinse cycle or when you turn the dial by hand to the end of a cycle?  If the water gets pumped out then the motor is OK but the clutch is not working.  If the motor is not running then that is the problem.  If the water fills and then nothing happens (the dial does not turn by itself) the timer is bad.  If the timer is bad but you turn it by hand the other actions (wash, rinse, etc. should work indicating no problems with motor and clutch).

GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.


try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

GE washer model WHDSR209


On some models, the drive motor is universal meaning the drive turns clockwise in wash mode and turns counter clockwise in spin mode.
Possibly the motor windings is defective for the wash mode and thus the entire drive motor will require replacing.
Hope this helps..

Possibly rinsing with cold water, washing with hot.
Check inlet valves for leaks, especially cold (rinse)
Lift the top panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then top will hinge backwards.
You can see the valves at the rear behind the drum..
You can run the machine with top lifted to see any more leaks.
Also remove front panel via 2 small screws to gain better view.

LG washer uses so little water, clothes aren't even damp and not clean


You will need to have a qualified LG technician come out and see what the problem is.  You may have a water level switch issue.
