Question about Washing Machines

Can I repair my wash mashine myself?

I loaded it and it started working well, but after about 20 minutes it stopped completely and I cant turn it on eversince. The door is not blocked, I can open it, but the water stays in - it doesnt drain. I checked the fuse - its good. Please help.

Check the breaker in the house if you haven't already. Use a ohm meter to check your timer and see if it has continuity. If that's not it pull off the shell and check the motor and water pump. Also check for a second fuse behind your control panel some models had 2. If all else fails try calling a used appliance store with it's own repair person or a independent repair person. They will usually tell you how to order whatever part you need and will walk you threw how to instal it.

Have you checked the filter, it may need emptying/cleaning out. If you take bottom front panel off you should be able to see it -- I think it's toward the right.

If there is a drain issue, sometimes there is an obvious solution. Check the drain hose for any kinks, as well as checking any lint filters in or on the drain hose. Is there a lint sock on the end that's full? Perhaps the drain line itself is plugged. You will want to make sure that the house drain system is not backed up or plugged. Always make sure that the washer drain hose is above the level of water in the drain tub. Some Whirlpool/Kenmore washers make use of a side-check valve near the tub outlet which may get clogged. A standpipe should be at least 1 1/4 inches in diameter, and never seal a drain hose into a standpipe. This can lead to back-siphoning. You also want to make sure that the standpipe is less than 96 inches in height. Pump problems show various symptoms. Sometimes the pump will lock up and seize. If the motor is running, it will continue to try to turn the pump. In the case of belt-driven pumps, the belt may break or burn through. The pulley may shear off. If there is enough tension on the belt, and the motor continues to try to turn it, you may wind up with a seized motor as well. The pump itself may have seized bearings, be jammed by clothing or another object; or the impeller blades may be broken off. The usual fix is to replace the pump.
If you think your pump may be jammed, drain out your tub and remove the hoses. Look inside the hoses and see if there are any obstructions. Feel around inside the pump inlets for anything that may be jamming the pump itself. You can also use long-nosed pliers to feel around inside the pump for any items that may be causing a jam. If you haven't found a jam, and you still believe there may be a jam in the pump, you can completely remove the pump from the washer and inspect it more closely.
Occasionally, transmission gears may become worn, or some other internal part may go bad. Some older washer models have an electric-mechanical shifter. If it won't shift, it's best to call a professional appliance repair person to address this issue. If your transmission is leaking oil, there are really only two options at this point, either run it until it dies completely, or replace it now.

  • F05 - Pressure switch jammed on full
  • The pressure switch must be changed.

    For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
    I recommend both sites because ...


    FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

    PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
    RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


    If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
    In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


    Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

    If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

    Somebody leaned on the buttons of mashine during wash, and it has frozen


    Hi Lisa, Before you check out the link below read how To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a "reset" signal to all the components.(This is a common fix that many appliance repair mechanics use - it works on about 50% of all washing machines.) Once the reset has been completed set the washer to do a small load with no clothes in the washer. See if the washer goes through with the cycle as normal. If the washer performs correctly, then it has been reset and is fixed. If not refer to more troubleshooting techniques and causes of problems below.
    If that did not solve the problem then it may be the "Lid Switch". Top loading washing machines that have a faulty lid switch will not turn the agitator and the spin cycle will not start. However on some washing machine models it will still agitate but not spin. To properly check this you must remove the lid switch.

    Your machine has (quite correctly) operated it's child safety lock.

    Your manual should tell you how to re-set it, however, you will almost certainly find that unplugging from the mains (Not just powering off on the button, as some door locks have a sneak circuit, even when the power is turned off at the button) and leaving the machine undisturbed for a full 20 minutes will allow a reset, the door lock will disengage and you should be able to start the program again as you would normally

    Doesn't your unit have a lock light in addition to an on light? On mine when you start the machine a red light comes on, then after a minute or two the lock light above it comes on. Once the lock light lights, the machine shouldn't stop. If only the initial light comes on, the door isn't locking. As a result, as the drum moves the clothes and they push against the unlocked door, it turns the machine off. You might need to check/tighten the door latch. Also check the door wax motor/door lock assembly.

    funny my machine does the same, i have had 2 answers one says to hold both the on off button and start button till it comes out of test mode? well something like that, (didn't work) and another tells me its just the board thats faulty, I do believe myself this can be reset by the right test equipment from Hotpoint (Hotpoint not helpful and i have a Hotpoint engineer as a neighbour), its also most embarrassing as i am a recently retired appliance engineer myself of 20 years, i have also been told its a conspiracy to get an engineer to call out to reset it and charge for doing so (being a computer control machine (not sure myself, these things don't happen - do they) Ps if you get told a cure and it works tell me please
