If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump

SOURCE: Need to set the washing machine for hot cycle, cold rinse

In owner's manual, go to Machine Information/Care and Cleaning/Cleaning the Inside of Your Ecosmart for a total hot water wash fill:

Press POWER button
Press and hold Favorite button for a few seconds until you hear two quick beeps.
Select Permanent Press cycle.
Select HOT wash. (Yes, you can do this in this mode.)
Press Favorite again to store the selections.

It really works!

SOURCE: Rinse cycle, water won't work

It sounds like you either use warm or hot water for the wash cycle. If this is the case, you probably have a cold water solenoid problem on your water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve on some washers). Most people use warm or hot water on the wash cycle. The water inlet valve has two solenoids. One for hot and one for cold. It uses a combination of the hot and cold solenoids to make warm water. The rinse cycle on most washers is a cold water rinse only, however. This would explain why the water appears to flow normally when it fills during the wash, and only trickles when it rinses. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, these valves commonly clog with sediment. You can shut off the water, remove the hoses, and attempt to clean the sediment screens to see if the water flow improves. If it doesn't, you will need to replace the valve. The following link epxlains how:

I know the link says this is for a Kenmore or Whirlpool, but also applies to a Roper. A replacement valve can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number and the part you need is located under the "Controls and Rear Panel" heading as item number 18 (part #285805). This is a very simple and inexpensive fix if you wish to perform the repairs youself. Not to mention, you can potentially will save hundreds by avoiding the labor charges of a service call. I hope this helps you. If you require additional assistance, please let me know. Hopefully, a good cleaning will do and you won't require parts.

Why does it take so long to wash cloths I have done everything 1 hour and half still washing


Hi Robin,

Many washers have different wash settings and rinses in addition to temperature options and water levels (or load size). The temperatures wont affect the wash times (but hot and warm water washes will cost you more for the expense of making the hot water), so choose whichever you think you need. The water level makes a small impact each time it needs to be filled (wash, rinse, etc.). A warm wash will fill in half the time as either a cold or hot wash - as both hot and cold water are combined to make a "warm" water cycle.

A "Normal" or "Regular" wash without a pre-soak or pre-wash cycle and a single rinse is usually sufficient for *most* laundry needs - especially if you're using dryer sheets. Otherwise, you may find fabric softener is not rinsed out enough to your liking (or not - it's a personal choice).

If your machine offers a "Max Extract" or longer spin setting - it is worth running it to reduce the amount of time they're in the expensive-to-use dryer.

If you need more help - provide your washer brand and model.

Whirlpool washing machine WFS1273AW manual


I have a whirlpool WFS 1273 AW front loader that gets stuck in the spin cycle. The timer counts down from 18 minutes to 17 minutes and starts to spin but before it gets to full speed the control panel lights all flash, go blank, and the. The timer resets to 18 minutes. I have cleaned he drain pump, removed the clothes and tried it when empty and it does the same thing. It does not appear out of balance.

I have an ASKO W6021 Quattro 1200 RPM. It does not complete the wash cycle. If I turn the know to rinse, it does rinse and completes. I tried it without any clothes in it and it does the same thing. I also...


Check that the cold water is turned on. The washing machine uses cold water to rinse, and if the cold water is not on, unit will end without completing cycle.

NO WATER INTAKE WHILE RINSE OPTION IS ON


It sound like the cold water inlet valve is faulty, the rinse cycle uses only cold water, and the water in the 'wash' cycle is probably hot.You need a new inlet valve, which on your machine is probably a double hot/cold unit.If you can't get a new inlet valve, a handyman/electrician may be able to change the wiring to use the 'hot' inlet valve for cold water which will allow the machine to wash, and rinse, using cold water through the hot valve..Tikka?...Good luck...Nomess

My Washer is only filling with hot water and cannot complete the rinse cycle because hot water is not an option.


You may have a defective cold water solenoid on the water inlet valve. There is a separate solenoid for hot and for cold. Since nearly all washers use cold water only during the rinse cycles, you are correct, the washer will not complete a full cycle. You will need to replace the inlet valve. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r600647-replacing_water_inlet_valve_kenmore

This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The average cost is about $30-$35. A replacement can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

If you need further assistance, please post back with your complete model number (located under the wash lid along the tub rim), so that I may be able to provide you with better service. I hope this helps you.

Machine will fill but not complete any cycle. suspect timer


If the washer will fill on all cycles except rinse, it indicates a cold water supply problem. (Cold water is what is used in the rinse cycle). This normally would be caused by a faulty solenoid on the water inlet valve. Here is a picture. The solenoid can be checked with an ohm meter or multimeter. If the solenoid reads zero ohms, it is stuck open and the inlet valve must be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.
