My guess is heating element, if its broke it wont heat water and because the thermostat does not detect hot water the machine does not move onto next step. i suspect you will not be able to do a prewash.
Part cost ££20 to £30
My machine has same problem but im struggling to pull out the eliment.
I'm unsure how the normal operation was restored. I attempted to correct it by setting the machine to SOAK+PREWASH overnight to assure that the SOAK timer had run out. Then My wife (who never uses SOAK or PREWASH options) made a clockwise trip around the TIMER control stopping at each of the "detents" (I did not witness this) one of the spin entry points worked to empty the washwater and the NORMAL wash cycle resumed normal function.
I'm not confident that my description above contains all the essential information needed to correct this problem and am disappointed that
I cannot find SUPPORTING LITERATURE that shows how to use these alternate cycles and combinations without another hang-up like these two that I have experienced. That which is supplied with the washer is pathetically inadequate and the Sears site has little else to offer. Document #8566913 was not delivered with the machine but I did find it somewhare on the INTERNET printed parts of it for additional help. *ALERT* #1: Just now I discovered that it does cover the Model series 110.2692* of which my machine is part ... and it ALONE warns of the 20 minute mandatory wait when two controls are set to obtain SOAK+PREWASH function.
*ALERT* #2: Last nite I discovered that the lid switch makes NO SOUND when the lid is lowered normally but can be made to click by pressing on the left rear of the lid. Feeling under the lid, I found no switchpad (?) on the operating arm as shown in diagrams found elsewhere.
FINAL QUESTIONS: 1) could failure to FULLY operate the lid switch allow partial function of this machine, e.g. to fill, agitate, rinse and spin normally but not to soak or prewash? 2) can anyone direct me to a place where I can obtain breakdown diagrams repair directions for this machine?
Unfortunately you will need to have the main board replaced on the unit. Something has happened to the software settings on the main board for that particular cycle/spin speed. The only solution at this point is to replace the entire main board. Hope this helps. Please rate my solution.
I realised that the washer was not filling properly with water! So I pulled it out from the wall and noticed the cold water fill pipe had been squashed and had a kink in it so not enough water was getting through. I remedied this by pulling the pipes through the under sink cupboard and securing them with gaffer tape, Hey presto the machine now works again! Hooray :D
sounds the pressure switch is not sensing the water level, so the machine thinks it's still filling. check the pressure switch and pressure switch cable. it's most likely just the cable itself. the pressure switch is located behind the drum and accessible through the back panel.
Hi You need to higher your outlet pipe on the back of the machine there is usually a clip to hold the pipe in place 3/4 of the way up the machine so it looks like a u upside down its should stop the machine from emptying straight away
Their is a small bowl connected by a see trough plastic pipe leading up to the preshour switch, that you will have to clean out the bowl and disconect the pipe from the presure switch and blow trough this to clean out any droplets of water. Replace then try the machine again, it may fill up again, dont dispair, empty the machine and re-blow trough the hose again with it disconected from the preshure switch. To empty the machine of water place the outlet hose into a bucket 3 or 4 times.
