Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washes one load without a problem, but during the next load after washing, and draining it stops. After 3 or 4 hours it will start the next step as if it hadn't stopped. Then it might stop again after filling for the rinse cycle and the same thing happens. Takes all day to wash one load. HELP! This washer is less than 3 years old. Huey

Is it normal for the washing machine to start and stop the spinning while the machine is in each cycle? Should it take over an hour to run one wash cycle?


Yes...they use less water...so they start, tumble, then cycle again adding more water. I use the fastest setting on all my clothes which is 1/2 hour. It also does start and stop during spinning to tumble the clothes. It speeds up as it goes thru each stop till it spins real fast. All my clothes wash perfectly on fastest cycle.

Hoover H160E - stops with lights flashing 4 times (cyclic)... suaully before aspin cycle... appears to be incomplete drain (drains until no water viisble in drum - but still significant water at drain.....


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would definitely change the pump motor judging from your clear symptoms and observations!
It's probable that the motor isn't running efficiently, just enough when helped by the 'gravity' of the full drum but struggles once that is minimum.

Go for it ;-0)

GE GSLS1100 Spacemaker won't spin or drain. Washes fine then makes a rattleling noise during spincycle.


When I first started using my washer when I hooked up the water it would fill the hose and then stop until I started the machine. Now when I hook up the washer to the faucet water starts to fill the machine before I close the lid and before I start the washing process....? The last time I used the machine it didnt drain and I had a flood, is there a problem with it now???

Water keeps draining LG WF-561SPP top loader


If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Washer continuously fills but drains at the same time during rinse cycle.


you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain

also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain

you have a syphoning effect
