First, eliminate the timer control by advancing the knob slowly a few clicks to see if the drain pump will engage . Do this right after the wash cycle ends, (the agitator will stop rotating back and forth ) and within a few seconds , 5-45 seconds , the drain pump turns on . Also,check to be sure the drain hose is not kinked anywhere from your washer to the drain. Then proceed .... As I don't know how old the washer is , I will cover the electronic style control system as well . If it is electronic , the rinse light is what you will be looking for . The same thing happens , in that the drain pump should start up to drain the water out . In either case, listen closely at that point for a mechanical or electrical humming noise at the base of the washer . Sometimes, a hairpin, bobbypin, toothpick , or some other stiff object will make its way through the drain holes in your tub and lodge in the pump cavity keeping the pump impeller from spinning . If this is the case , you can gain access to the pump and remove the inlet hose (the hose between the tub base and pump) from the pump itself to look inside the pump cavity and use tweezers or a set of hemostats to remove the object. It will be pretty easy to see if something is there . If nothing is there , go ahead and remove the outlet hose from the pump after disconnecting the power of course , disconnect the electrical connector from the pump and remove the two screws or nuts that mount the pump. Replace it with a new one.

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

Ge super capacity plus washer. Mod wlse3150a0ww. no matter what setting it always starts on rinse then goes to spin.It also will not drain.


If the washer is stopped mid cycle it will default to rinse and spin. It will then get stuck in a loop. It is necessary to reset the electronics. Unplug the electrical cord from the unit. Wait 30 seconds. Turn the cycle selector all the way around clockwise. Turn it again and set it on any setting accept rinse or spin. Plug the unit in. It should begin a new cycle and be working normally.

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!

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
