Question about Siemens WXL142 Front Load Washer

Open Question

Will not stop washing!

Siemens XLS 140 worked fine for 2 years. Moved to a new address and now it will not move off the wash cycle automatically. All functions appear to work if I move the control knob onto a new setting eg rinse, pump, spin. Switch on a wash cycle and the machine fills normally. Auto load balancing occurs. A target time is set. But then it just keeps washing! If I move it to spin, it says "machine too full". Move it to drain, and all the water is removed. I have not detected any problems in the fill hoses. The drain filter seems to be clean, although I have not looked other than at "ground level" behind the trap door. The pressure switch works if I blow into it, but presumably the other pressure sensor is used to detect the level by varying its output voltage, so cannot easily be checked (although I could try). I cannot see any loose wires, but I have not removed the front panel.

SOURCE: washer spins dry but will not fill also outer tub does not drain

If washer does not fill.

If water is not getting into the machine, check the following:

To start cut power to the applianc3e for five minutes, this can fix a jammed timer control.

Check if the hot and cold water faucets are connected, and have good pressure.

If that does not work you may need to call a repairman to test the following:

The inlet valve must be tested by energizing it , testing valve solenoid, and reading voltages to identify a fault in wiring (contact).

If the inlet valve is fine when tested, worth having a look at the water level switch, if it is stuck on overfill position , it will prevent water from getting into the machine.

Lastly,the timer control board should be tested, to ensure that the problem is not a faulty timer keeping the inlet valve on close position.

SOURCE: my siemens WD1252 doesn't change from wash to rinse

Hallo,
I have the same problem since yesterday. I've seen that probably it doesn't warm up the water. If I change washing temperature to "cold" everything works normally. I think that heater is broken.
Have You resolved your problem? Have You called service?

Best regards.

Wash machine sometimes gets stuck on rinse cycle & dryer not dry


Sounds like the drain hose for the washer is too far down in the stand pipe at the wall causing a siphon effect, try raising drain hose a little. The dryer sounds like the vent line from back of dryer too wall is pinched causing an air flow obstruction. Hope this helps.

GE Profile will not run cycles. Runs water continuously.


OK, i would do a hard reset by unplugging for 2 minutes. if the problem still exists, this is defiantly a malfunctioning relay. it will have to be replaced.
