The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.

you both seem to have bad lid switches. A bad lid switch will prevent draining and spinning.

SOURCE: kenmore top load (model # 110 82370120) drain problem

Good AM. I see here that you have a fairly old belt drive Kenmore washer. The real problem with these is that the parts for them are so very expensive anymore to get. A timer (which you may be needing) will run you around $100.00 to $175.00 depending on where you live. Very expensive repairs on these, but if you want to go for it, here are some hints to help. Sounds like you have one of three problems. First off PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE BEFORE WORKING ON IT. Your timer may have lost or has a stuck contact inside (unrepairable in most cases) which is making it do something is shouldnt be doing in that area of the timer. This would probably be the most expensive of your repair. The next thing is it could be the water level switch could be going bad. This one is highly doubtful since it fills and stops filling, but I have heard (but never have seen) that they can short out sometimes and cause wacky operation. Both these issues can be fixed by remove the console rear panel and front knobs to remove both. The next item could be a defective wig-wag in the bottom of the unit. One of the positioning solinoids maybe going bad and sending bad signals back to the timer.

None of these problems are really hard to fix. And truthfully (even though some of these guys will be mad) you can sometimes find these parts on ebay for a halfway good price. Part numbers for each are:

Timer: 381860
Water Level Switch: 359712
Wig-Wag: 89814

Good luck with this one, and if you know how to use one, try to run resistance with an ohm-meter on your wig-wag to be sure your getting power flow through the soilnoids (you will have 2, be sure to unplug the solinoids before testing to be sure its a true test) before replacing.

SOURCE: Washing machine stops mid-cycle, water doesn't drain

Sounds like you have a bad lid switch, or the plastic plunger on the lid that engages the lid switch is broke. if the plunger is broke, it is cheap, and only 2 screws to remove and put new one on. if that is not broke, check the lid switch. This model is a lid switch, and lid lock in one. You can test it before replacing it if you have a meter. you need to hinge the lid up to check and replace the lid switch. use a putty knife, on each side between the top and top of the front panel. slide the putty knife in one side, it will hit a bracket if your in the right spot. press in, and lift on that side of the top. do the same on other side, just don't let go of the first side or it will latch again. then swing the top back, the back side is on hinges. the lid switch is on the right side attached to the top. unplug washer, remove the 2 wires on the switch and check continuity. there should be continuity, or "open" when the lid is closed, and no continuity, or "closed" when you open the lid. if it is "closed" even when lid is closed, replace the lid switch. let me know if you have any further questions, shane.

Hi newbie here with no real knowledge of washing machines I have a Bush a126Q washing machine that just won't work help!!!! The start button an action button flash as shown below in pic. This has been...


Hi,
Because it doesn't have an LCD screen it has 'flash codes' instead of fault codes.

But,
before you do anything else, turn the machine off & unplug it or switch-off the socket switch.
Leave it for an hour, before plugging-in & switching on again.
Whilst it's turned-off, take out the filter again & see if there is anything stopping the water pump from turning. It is usually located directly behind where the filter is.

Because you've cleaned the filter, it might be enough to re-set the machine.

If it doesn't, you'll need to count the flashes.
There's a short space between a sequence of flashes.
Once you know how many times it's flashing, you google;
Bush A126Q flash codes
That should tell you where the washer thinks it's problem lies.?

Best of luck

Sometimes things can get out of sync. Try unplugging the machine for a few hours to rest the code on the board. It's like rebooting your computer. I did this to mine and it cleared up the problem.

How do I open the door to my Bush a126q washing machine after a quick wash?


Reset it back to the spin cycle and try to empty some more water out of it. It should release the door when it knows it is empty.

Bush A126Q White and the ''end of programme'' light is staying on


Sorry Jo, I think I may have mis-understood your explanation - is there actually a problem with the machine functioning properly or is it simply that the end of cycle light will not turn off?

If it is the latter then simply turn the dial back to 0 before opening the door from the previous wash, this action tells the washing machine to reset itself as the drum is about to be emptied.

I have the exact machine however as it is graded, it didn't come with any manuals, at the end of the wash I just figured thta this was what I needed to do.

Its almost as if you need to double-declutch the washing machine - return the macine to 0 before selecting another cycle.
