If you are saying the water keeps on running but never fills then the water is siphoning or running out. There are a few things that can cause this.


The drain hose is connected solid to the drainpipe with tape or some know of airtight connection. This will cause the water to siphon out because it cannot get air. If this is the case you will have to install a siphoning break. This will allow the drain to be connected the drainpipe with an airtight connection and still get air. Note that the only reason for the airtight connection is so that water will not leak when the drain backs up. If the drain will drain well you don

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.

Washer just keeps filling and never advances on large and medium loads only


Your drain hose is pushed too far down into the drain so when you select the larger load sizes the water is being siphoned out as it goes in due to the pressure differential.

Du1100xtpq7 has had the touch pad replaced along with the circuit board that goes behind it and yet it just keeps repeating the wash cycle and goes for hours


i would guess that you are having a problem with the optical sensor inside the pump housing. it is suppose to sense when the water is clean or dirty and allow the unit to continue washing or advance to the next cycle.
i have seen these test good but be just out of calibration enough to cause long run times.
you can try to change it yourself or have the service company try that instead of a new board and panel.

It keeps getting stuck on rinse cycle a


Hi there,

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. 

It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Check it out....

Good Luck!!

thanks

Washer fills with water but does not advance to next cycle


If this is a rotary timer, nudge the timer slightly in it's normal direction of rotation. If the timer keeps going (it might hang up at the next point in the cycle, but nudge it again), I suspect the timer needs to be replaced. They get weak.

Frigidaire FTF530F won't advance


Possibly the timer. next time it wont stop filling turn off the washer. if it still fills you have a water valve issue. Hope for the valve. Timers are big bucks.

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
