My washer will fill up on every cycle, but then it does nothing, except on the delicate cycle, which is very strange because it will go through the complete cycle. It is not the lid switch, i have checked it out. What could this be, with it working on the delicate cycle. Please help montie
Sounds like a winding on the motor is burned out or the timer is defective. The motor uses a low power circuit during the delicate cycle both during wash and spin. The timer selects which winding is energized (fast or slow).

Hello annp, thank you for your post! Based
on the symptoms you are describing, it does sounds like a siphoning issue.
Generally speaking, the drain hose should come up above the washer tub and
please make sure the drain hose is not too deep in to the house drain pipe. The
drain hose should only be submerged 4-8 inches into the house drain pipe. If
correct, otherwise the unit might be experiencing a communication with the
control board and water fill valve. At this point, please
reach out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is
ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this
information helps to some degree - please do not
hesitate to reconnect.
Has your machine got a delicate cycle or a switch to turn it on and off? Some machine have a cycle for delicate fabrics where it will do all the wash except a spin to protect the clothes, if you have this feature make sure it is not switched on or that you are using this program for the wash.
