My manchine won't fill with water.

Hi,

My washing manchine won't fill with water, it just squits water and stops when you open the lid. It squits about 5 - 10 times then starts to beep as if to say it's finished washing. i though that the hose might be blocked but I checked and it's not, I even unscrewed the top bit of the manchine but couldn't figure out why it won't fill with water.

Any suggestions???

    same problem exactly!
    I have had some luck turning it off at the wall for a few hours and then it works but now it is like this all the time.

Hi
it sounds like a faulty water valve, one way to check that is to connect the hot water hose to the cold tap and select hot water not cold and see if it fills if it does than it is the cold water valve faulty

Whirlpool washer won't wash or spin or dump water


usually a broken lid switch if it fills with water and then nothing,set the timer on spin and pull out the timer,open the lid and stick a screw driver into the hole where the plastic acuator on the lid goes into the hole and push down easily and see if washer will run this is where the lid switch is and it's only a safety switch so when the lid is open the washer won't run,if not push up and down on the switch and listen for a clicking sound,no click switch is bad part number 285671,watch video

What will the washing machine do if the timer is bad. My Roper fills up with water and won't do anything else at all, doesn't even make a humming sound. Had to drain with cup. The knob for


From the closed position lift the lid of the washer about 2'' and listen for a distinct click. Then set lid back down and should hear another click just before it closes. The wire form hinge on left side of lid actuates the lid switch. Is it broken? Let me know.

Lid Locks- Fills for 2 seconds and stops


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer lid won't lock the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer door won't lock the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Main Control Board If the washer door won't unlock the problem might be the main control board. This is not common. Normally the problem is with the lock mechanism.

Whirlpool Sm8525079 Rev fills up with water, but won't agitate.


Your lid switch has a fault, Sometimes the switch can bend which means that it won't always operate.

The washer turns on and fills up but then stops. If you bang the lid a few times it will usually continue on the cycle and be fine. You have to repeat the lid banging for every load though. The lid...


Sounds like the switch that the lid presses is either broken or has been knocked loose.

Or the little plastic or metal "switch actuator" (the little poker) that presses the switch has broken.

I believe the washer thinks the lid is open because it will fill up but wont't wash until it knows the lid is shut.

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.
