Question about Westinghouse Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Westinghouse LT959S Direct Drive Sensor Wash machine. When I add a load of washing it starts to fill with water then it stops filling. It generally sits on auto but recently I have had to change it to suit the load. But now it starts to fill then stops and when I change the setting it seems to do nothing and then the alarm sets off. What can I do now? My machine is about 4 years old and is still in excellent condition. Thank you Paulette

Hi, Paulette well, I think that this sounds like your Load Sensor or Water Level sensor, is faulting? I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but this is a job for a professional.
To achieve the cheapest repair with the least amount of time and headache, please contact Westinghouse either a local, or even the head office, and ask for a referral on to an authorised service and repair center. Now when you make contact with them, first ask them to call and give a "Quote" as to the cost and type of repairs that need to be made. Then you can make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace. Now, I say this as often a repair can quickly escalate in costs, and a seemingly small problem, can end up being very expensive, often my customers tell me they then would prefer to put any monies, that would have been spent on the repair, be put towards a NEW unit, complete with a full warranty.

Check to see if the water is hot when it's pumped out, if it's not then your heater element may need replaced, if it is then the temp sensor may be the fault. :)

After working well for six months, my washer now expels water at random points during the wash and rinse cycles.


Check inside the fill hose for debris. There is a screen designed to block debris from getting inside the machine valve. If the screen builds up with debris the water slows down. Sounds like the water is filling too slow. Also the unit and/or the load may not be balanced causing it to stop and drain out. If it's okay then see what lights are blinking when these events occur and post here.

Water doesnt stop when filling washing machine


There should be a "fill control" on the panel of the achine that lets you set the fill limit for wash loads ranging from small to large. Obviously, your fill control is not working

I put a fairly large load in washer. As the washing started I needed to add an item. I was surprised that the machine had very little water in it. Is there a way to add more water. Also when soaking I had...


The Series 10 and 11 machines have three level fill points the Series 12 and above have two level fill points.

I know Bulky Items wash selection will give you a High water fill which is only 7 inches or so of water in the wash basket. 3.5 inches of water for a medium fill.

You can turn on/open the water inlet valves in Service Mode but I would not recommend that. A manual fill as you did is the only safe way to set the additional water level IMOP.

Hi…

If I get you correct, the hot water is not coming into the machine or it is not working at all.

Stops in the middle of wash cycle


Hi!

If 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.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Fill will not stop


you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.

try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.

if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.

tnx 4 using fixya,
