Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but with such a fault it is extremely difficult for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer.
It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB, water inlet control valves, door solenoid as primary suspects. Secondary suspects could be main motor, drain motor.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Whirlpool washer will occasionally be filling with water and pumping water out, problem will last until i turn timer knob to next action, after turning timer to "sweet spot" washing machine will...


These timers are normally sealed units (crimped and pressed sheet metal) and replaced as a unit.
If you could open one up, you'd find
that the contacts causing the intermittent problem are burnt from arcing. All washing machine timers
will eventually get this problem with enough use. As an electrician, you'll recognize that all switches
(washing machine timers are a series of switches oriented around a slow (timer) motor) are rated
for a given number of make/break cycles. Washing machine timer contacts are no different.
If you could actually "shine up" the offending pair of burnt contacts, another pair would soon
show the same symptoms, since all the contacts in your timer have endured the same number of
make/break cycles.

My lg washer was working and suddenly a burning smell came out of it and we dont know how to make it work again


Hi,

Try a small amount of soda crystals put it in the soap draw about half the amount you would normally use of regular soap powder and put it on the hottest wash it will break down any gunk or loose limescale which could be causing the smell.

Thank you

Why does my washing machine trip the electric


run the machine, after it trips, unplug and carefully touch the motor,it may have a bad capacitor, or dry bearings causing it to draw excessive current,if these 2 things are not it, then look for a bare wire that may be touching case during this part of the cycle,and if you can get an "Amprobe" it reads current and check machines current draw during the start to trip current
