see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:It's
the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins
agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin
cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It
may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with
water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse
water. See There's no cold water.
It is most likely that you have a faulty water inlet valve. Some machines have a seperate valve for rinse to flush in a fabric softener I suspect that your detergent flushing valve is faulty.....Good luck Nomess
inlet valves working correctly are you getting hot and cold water entering the tub ?start the machine and switch from hot to cold and make suire there is both temps available there is a thermister on some washers that read the temp of water cold is required for most machines to rinse ..the therms are mostly located on the inlet water valve inside the machine.
this can be two issues. One could be the control knob. there could be a malfunction here. secondly, you may have a faulty water valve assembly. the relay or solenoid may need to be replaced. i would start with the control knob.
Had a repair man here for the same issue. Learned two things:
1. Too much detergent causes 'soap lock.' The electronics will get confused when there's too many suds left after a rinse and shut the spin cycle down. That's why re-running the entire cycle without more detergent solves the problem. Use less detergent.
2. There is a way to manually get the spin cycle to run using diagnostics codes. Here's what my guy did:
a. Washer selection knob in OFF position.
b. Hold the 'Spin Selection' and 'Delay Start' buttons down at the same time.
c. While holding those two buttons, turn the Washing selector knob to Permanent Press-Cold.
d. Keep the buttons held down until the LCD control panel reads 'P:01'
d. Release buttons.
e. Use the 'Spin Selection' button to cycle thru the codes. Stop when it reads 'P:04' which is the spin cycle.
f. Press 'Start/Pause' button to begin the spin cycle.
I don't know what the other codes do but this should save you from having to run the entire wash cycle.
does it have a manual programme knob?if it does ,probably the internal contacts do not mesh so it stops at next step (programme)but the water pump keeps on making the noise.
try turning the knob by hand when machine stops before entering next programme cycle.if machine starts ,programme knob is the problem.
