This is a issue with your pressure switch it is either at fault or the hose that comes off the pressure switch that plugs into the side of the tub has come off you can test your pressure switch by removing it and blowing air into one side of it if it is good it will make a sound like a slight crinkling of an aluminum can here is a video on how to test a pressure switch as well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZZ2bDMspj8 if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

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.

Washing machine sticking in middle of rinse and spin part of cycle


If your machine is stopping at the rise cycle, then you have a faulty cold water inlet valve/solenoid.

To verify this, turn off your hot water tap and only leave the cold water on. Put your machine on a cold water cycle. If the machine does not fill up, it means the valve/solenoide needs to be replaced.

Also note if you had water left in the tank prior to rise cycle commencing, then the drain pump is blocked.

Our machine works fine, but the water just trckles in when it adds water for the rinse cycles. It can take 20 minutes to fill the tub.


Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve. Replace the water valve with this part.

My ignis washing machine stops in the middle of the washing cycle and makes a sound, kind of blowing.


there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.

Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses.
The most common cause of a washing machine not taking any water in is either a kinked fill hose or the tap becoming faulty whereby you switch it on but the valve inside doesn't turn. Another common cause is the tap getting accidentally switched off and people not realising. Other causes can be wiring faults, water valve faults or programme control faults. This advice was originally written when most washing machines were hot and cold fill and didn't have error codes. It's now been updated to reflect the fact that these days the vast majority of washing machines are cold fill only and should give an error code if they can't take in water.
If your washing machine is stuck full of water the water needs to be drained out and this article gives tips on how to do this. If the entire washing machine has gone dead leaving the machine full of water it may be worth checking that it isn't something as simple as a blown fuse ( Washing machine is dead, wont start ) in which case if you get the washer going again it should pump the water out itself.

If the washing machine appears to be functioning normally but simply won't pump away the water then the possible causes (in the most likely order) are a blockage somewhere, a pump failure, or an electrical fault stopping the pump from running.

Blockages are the more likely explanation, but pumps can fail.

First became aware there was a problem when machine overfilled resulting inj flooding,cold water fill would stop when i turned on a tap ,suspected water pessure switch.new water pressure switch fitted...


If it works O.K. in a different wash cycle, then the timer could well be the issue.
Using that last cycle you described, will it perform a complete normal cycle ???

first if you drum is filling again after wash you may have a faulty hot or cold inlet valve turn water taps of after wash has finished if no water in drum the next day just a matter of isolating which valve it is
your second problem sounds like you have a blockage in the hose coming out of your drum to the water pump may be that missing sock you were looking for hope this helps let me know how you went

Washing machine won't complete cycle


If it is a hot and cold fill washer, yes, then it could be a hot water problem related to the valve, or the water supply., if it is cold fill only, then the problem is elsewhere.

My maytag neptune washer stop washing with 10 minutes left to go.


If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error. The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue. The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle.
Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only? I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket.
Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens. If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode. Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s. If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly. You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse


while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!

Avanti W797: Tub won't spin or water does not empty.


Had the same problem. The water pump is not working and since it cant drain water it wont spin. A easy fix. There's a magnet located on the water pump thats comes lose. Simply tie it back into place.
