    My machine does not advance automatically thru the cycle, needs to be manually advanced. The selector knob almost seems stripped but has been this way since new. Machine is three years old. Any similar problems or solutions?

Why does it take 2 hours to wash a load of clothes when timer show 53 minutes to wash it? It has taken me 6 hours to wash 3 loads of clothes. They are regular size loads not extra large loads.


Leiloni, is this a new machine with built in sensors that detects when clothes are clean, when soap suds are still present and all that fancy stuff, or is a plain Jayne washer with a bad timer.

It is possible that poor water flow may be the culprit. Most washers operate on a water level system. The water levels have to be reached before the next cycle begins . If the water flow is slow this can extend the run time. To remedy this shut water off to unit disconnect hoses at unit. There usually are screens inside each hose connection on washer gently remove these and clean them.reinstall in washer. Before reattaching hoses put the unattached ends in a pail and turn the water on to flush out the hoses. Then reattach them and see if this solves the problem. Hope this helps.

My kenmore stacked washer/dryer has a wash cycle that can last for 12 hours. it will ultimately finish and clothes will be cleaned properly but it takes long breaks during the cycle.


The time it takes to do a cycle is determined by the washing machine timer. That is driven by a clock motor. This is an older machine so what is happening is that the motor on the timer is stopping and starting. A replacement timer is sold only as a complete assembly. I'm fairly sure you washing machine does the best job in the world in cleaning cloths.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

Washing cycle on a 40degree op. takes more than


Don't forget that the reason you bought a front loading washer is for the efficiency of the washing. In other words, front loaders use less water and get clothes cleaner without all the harsh beating that the older agitator units do.

If you're using any of the pre-programmed wash cycles, you might want to tgry another cycle to see how it does for getting your clothes clean with a shorter cycle.

If you check your owners manual, it should provide the cycle times for the various wash and water temp settings. The colder the water you use, the longer the wash cycle typically is, since it takes more agitation and time to get clothes clean, especially with front loading machines. Hope this helps.

Takes almost 2 hours to complete a wash cycle


Have you ever cleaned it out? Its likely due to a plugged drain, not allowing the system to drain fast enough for the normal cycle. Check out my solution on

This is joyce
It is according to what cycle you have it set on and what kind of detergent you are using. if you use something other than HE detergent you may have a very long cycle, its trying to get all the suds out of your clothes, and yes the cycles do range that high.

Fisher pakel washer taking too long to wash clothes


How long does it take to fill the tub? if the water, on warm stteting, isn't blasting out fast or if, when set to cold, it's trickling out, your cold water valve is shot. I can help with this problem 'cause I had the same experiences you listed.

I could not find a definite answer for you, but I know that the wash tub holds roughly 35 gallons on a full load. You can calculate the time it takes the washer to completely empty a full load to see how long it takes. If it takes 1 minute for the wash tub to empty on a full load, then you know the GPM for the drain pump is about 35 gallons per minute. If it takes a minute and a half, the rate is about 23 gallons per minute. If it takes 2 minutes, then the rate drops to about 17.5 gallons per minute. Get the idea? I hope this gives you the information you were looking for. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Miele washing machine model W713 front load - issues


If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump
