Every so often, my washer stalls out. At first, it seemed to happen only at the end of a cycle. Now it can happen at any point. The time displayed won't change for as long as 45 minutes. When the load finally does stop, no error code comes up. Usually, the clothes are also still dripping wet because they didn't get a decent rinse and spin.
I had Sears out to check on it, but they couldn't get the machine to repeat the problem. It happens sporadically, so sometimes I can get all my laundry done, sometimes only one load before it acts up again. The repair guy said everything he saw looked fine.

Re: cycle running for hours
With the machine off using any button but power and cancel and press 2-5 seconds on then repeat 5 times, you will see 88 and if a code is stored it will flash or if F 2 comes on your panel is shot and cost 100 plus to change.

The electric valve (solnoid) is stuck partly open. Happens a lot with hard water. If that's the condition of your water, you can try turning off the hot and cold water, disconnect the hoses from the valve, leaving the other end connected to the washer. Drain the water out of the hoses and pour an ounce or two of CLR down the hose. Let it stand for a few hours or overnight. Hook up again and run at least a couple cycles on small load.
If it doesn't seem to fix it, you'll probably need to replace the valve.
Check you motor coupler by tilting machine back so you can get under. Look under machine, around where the center of the machine was. If you see a black powder, you most likely have a bad coupler. You may even find pieces of black rubber.

I've had the same experience with my Speed Queen washer. Approached the accredited Speed Queen agents for assistance, when tech support was deployed to diagnose the problem. In the end, I was told that the "timer" went bust. So the wash cycle seems to work 100%, but when it comes to rinse and spin the contacts on the timer don't make contact, and the motor waits in anticipation for it's next command, and that the high pitch noise heard.
Hi there, I've got a Hotpoint Aquarius washer / dryer and this has just started happening to me - it seems to get to the end of the cycle then repeat itself. However, I do not seem to be able to cancel the cycle, or am I able to switch it off. It's been going for about 4 hours now. Any ideas?
I have one of these things, too, an EZ 3612 CEE. I've replaced the pump on mine, but I am in no way an appliance technician. However, your problem seems like an electronics problem to me and the service people I've spoke to about this machine have told me that the main circuit boards in these machines fail regularly. That has yet to happen to me. I would suggest calling the equator service number. You'll be connected to some technician in India, almost certainly. But my experience with these guys has been great. They have VERY patiently talked me through a couple of different diagnostic procedures and solved some problems. Don't have the phone # just now but you can google equator appliance and get it.
