SOURCE: I have a westinghouse washing

If water is not filling then it can be the failure of the inlet valve, if water fills but does not stop the error can be the water level sensor and if the motor does not work with voltage to the motor, it is failure of the motor.
However if there is no response at all then the control board is faulty.

SOURCE: indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing

Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

SOURCE: Washing machine fills in the water but does not start the wash cycle

The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.

See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."

However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.

A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.

Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.

More likely you will have to replace the timer.

See again from Repairclinic:
"When 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.


  • 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."

  • You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

    This might be Lid cover open protection. There is a small magnet at the edge of the lid cover, housed in some sort of a catch.
    If the plastic housing cracked, the magnet might have dropped into the washing drum. To overcome this, place a magnet on the position where the plastic catch will contact the washer when the lid is close.

    My washing machine will not turn on.


    I suggest you rapid reading of alarms.
    • Press the START/PAUSE button and the nearest option button simultaneously for at least 2 seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence indicating the last alarm.
    • To display the previous alarms, press the button to the left of the START/PAUSE button in sequence.
    • To return to the last alarm, press the START/PAUSE button.
    • The alarm continues to be displayed for the amount of time required, and then the display returns to its normal operation.
    • While the alarm is being displayed, the appliance continues to perform the cycle or, if in the programme selection phase, it maintains the previously selected options in memory.

    Hi, my Electrolux EWX12550w washing machine and dryer, working fine on was but when I'm drying it it starts at 13 minutes then keeps working but sticks on 10min also I get an err sign it's E10


    Family error code E10 is visible to customers and (could be E11,E12 and E13 only visible in service mode) means problem
    with filling water.

    I suggest rapid reading alarm code when appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. during the execution of the washing
    programme).
    Press and hold down START/PAUSE and the nearest option buttons for at least two seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence corresponding to the last alarm.
    The alarm sequence continues as long as the two buttons are held down.

    E11 - Problems with water fill for washing
    E12 - Problems with water fill for drying
    E13 - Water leakage

    I believe there are difficulties in water fill for drying.
    Water is necessary in the drying phase in order to cool down the steam entering in the drying condenser.
    Possible causes: Tap closed or water pressure too low; Drain tube improperly positioned; Water fill solenoid valve is faulty; Leaks from water circuit on pressure switch; Pressure switch faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty

    LG Turbodrum DD 8.5kg WT-R852 washing machine, will not completely fill with water to water, to initiate the wash cycle, wash process stops there.


    THE WASHER IS OBVIOUSLY HAVING A PROBLEM DETECTING THE WATER LEVEL? IT DETECTS AS FULL WHEN ITS NOT AND THEN GOES INTO DRAIN CYCLE? THE FILLS AGAIN? I would suspect the water pressure switch but if it was detecting a full cycle it would sent it into wash cycle? the water inlet valve only allows the amount of water it is told to send in and does not control the amount or drain cycle. Im not sure here but Im thinking maybe the water level switch may be flawed, the one that has low-medium and high? all these can be checked with a multimeter

    Possible there are errors in the program memory. Power off the washer for half an hour, press and hold down the start button , then switch on. Try also with another program. Also check if the inlet filter is clogged and the water flow is good, if not clean. Also check the water level pressure sensor.

    Would you know why a washing machine stop in the


    How much soap are you using? These newer models only use a small amount of water. You go adding a ton of detergent and that washer is gonna worry itself to death trying to get rid of excessive suds.
