Question about Washing Machines
I have watched all of the lights light up and it goes through the entire cycle but then it just goes back to fill the machine and the light all the way to the left which is the Fill light. I have now done another operation and that is setting the cycle to spin only. The washer did the spin only and after it drained what water was inside of the machine and did the spin, the motor stopped the spin only, the light shut off and after approximately 10 to 15 seconds, the machine started the spin only cycle. This is useful in case we can't get down fast enough to unplug the machine at end of cycle, we can set the dial to spin only and let the clothes get spun again because of our fault. We can unplug the machine, when we feel the clothes have spun enough and most of the water is out.
Dear William, I guess first you have to check if the start switch is shorted. When you turn on the machine, does it automatically go into cycle? If yes, then your start switch is faulty. Otherwise, you may have to replace your timer/sequencer.

Testimonial: "I think that the timer is correct,if the timer has a countdown sequence and when it reaches zero, the machine does stop. I think that this item does work in the sense that the washer does all of the cycles and I am sure that the time is correct for the various sequences. For instance there is a light for the 3 different minute times and each one operated as it should. I will say that they seemed to work, using my mental timing to get a sense whether the times were correct. Back to the next item that you named and that being the sequencer, I am not sure what the function of this part is. If the sequencer makes step 1 fill go to step 2 agitate then go to step 3, etc. You may have nailed the nail on the top with that one. If the sequencer is supposed to know when the complete operation is done, then you could be right. Does the sequencer make a mechanical operation which ends the contact of electrical current to the motor or something similar. I will look to see if I see this item on the owners manual online. I will close for now. The exact model number is WWRE6260DOWW. I will add this item to inventory on this site. Thank you very much for your few suggestions. I will take them into strong consideration."

1st I checked the power, compressor in garage had tripped the breaker to the washer circuit. This model has no bells or whistles to tell you if the power is on to the unit. Reset the breaker and unit works.

if you are saying that the washer finishes the load of clothes and timer goes to off and water is filling the tub after this then you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer.disconnect the water lines and change out the valve
