    I did not notice. I washed one load with a pint of vinegar thinking that perhaps the drain was clogged since I found a banana in my granddaughters pocket (whew) after the washing with most of the banana gone only parts of the peel left. ...... The vinegar was so far has solved the problem. Don't know how to clean the drain but if it occurs again I will add another comment with the code.... THANK YOU for your help.

Simpson ezi 950 9.5 will not empty, rinse, spin dry.


That sounds like the pump is jammed. Have you checked for hair slides or similar? Once the pump is free to operate, your Simpson should resume normal service.

Front loader will only spin small loads


The 7 beeps you are hearing should relate to a chart in your manual. This will help you narrow down the issue. Let me know what you find.

This problem will often occur with a light load of clothes. The beeping is usually the unbalanced load alarm. Often, redistributing the clothes around the agitator and moving the agitator manually up and down and side to side to center it again will fix the problem. You may need to advance a new cycle to where it spins out to empty the washer and run the laundry again.

058 model does not fill up continuously, water in and stops starts and stops does that a few times and stop completely and beeps all lights stays on. Please help. Thanks


I have the same problem, just checked the switch and its all ok. But the machuine also stops and starts when its trying to empty after the last rinse cycle to start the spin cycle. Starts to drain then stops and repeats, it does empty some without stopping but starts to go silling when its nearly empty?

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

The machine will start a cycle normally, but after the timer reaches a certain point it stops counting down and the machine will continue to agitate until you force it to stop.


Thank you for verifying the model type so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A questions in this forum machine specific topic area.

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

You will need the Service Manual for support. I’m an owner like you with a solid repair skills on the machine and will try to help you DIY the repair if we can ID the issue through troubleshooting.

Do you have this condition in all wash cycles? Will a Quick Wash cycle complete? Do you see the Cycle Status LED ever indicate the machine has moved to the Spin Cycle during the wash cycle? This could be a Control Board failure but we need to troubleshoot.

I want to make sure the Wash basket will spin up with a Spin Only cycle selection. Can you select a Spin Only cycle with a empty wash basket. I would release the washer top so you can observe this test. I want to rule out a broken Clutch large wrap spring.

Page 33 of the Service Manual will show you how to release the washer top from the base. In Spin Only cycle raise the top just enough to make sure the wash basket is rotating Counter Clock Wise – CCW with the Spin Only cycle selected and operated.

If the above test doesn’t indicate an issue I would like you to try the Quick Service Cycle test on page 15 of the Service Manual and see if your FAV6800A will pass that test with no clothes in the washer. When you put the machine in Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys until the machine beeps and the LED display reads 00. Then press Wash/Rinse Temp to start Quick Service Cycle test. Did the test complete with a PA indication in the display? It will only display the PA code for a few seconds. End of cycle will beep washer will unlock and Cycle Status LED will indicate complete.

Waiting for your reply….Rich

Washer spin cycle not working


As a blind guess, because I don't know this machine specifically, I would suggest it's more likely that the beep is a warning that the empty cycle has not managed to clear out all the water and so the spin cycle can't start. If this is the case, you probably have a filter on the drain pump somewhere (Either behind a door on the front at the bottom or under the machine, built into a bulge in a rubber hose near the empty pump). If there is a blockage here, or less likely, but still possible, if the empty pipe is blocked or obstructed, what you are describing is very likely. If it is the filter and you find it and clean it, you need to remember that these filters should be checked every month or so and cleaned.

Extend or reduce the checking periods depending on the debris you find in the filter and how much washing you do.

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
