You should have a quick wash on your unit. By using a concentrated washing powder you can do your washing on quick wash mode which most manufacturers set to approximate 30 minutes. In a front loader most clothes can be washed on a quick cycle. Because of the way they wash.

Washing machine switches on and then hums and clicks the dial but does not operate just hums and clicks

Mind does the same thing, I'm not sure if it has to do with age or if it is time for new timer! mine does finish it's cycle, and wash's and rinses the cloths, does Yours? and it only does this in between wash and rinse cycle! The noise You hear is the timer making it's way through cycle, as I said I think it has to do with age, and in the future, hopefully a long ways into the future, the timer will need replaced! If This does this when You first start wash, then You may not be getting water into Your washer, Do you use city water or well?

The water flowing into my speed queen is vert slow

The to ensure that the water valves at the inlets are fully open. If they are, then shut them off and remove the hoses from the supply to the washer. There is usually a small metal screen-type filter in the connection at the back of the washer for each hose. These may be clogging up. They can be carefully removed, cleaned, and reinstalled.

Machine does not wash an dry dishes some time washes but doesnt dry dishes machine starts up an starts to go through cycle but goes on an on takes ages 2 complete cycle at end of cycle dishes not done

Probably heating element gone, or could be the heating circuit relay on the on board computer.
Not easy DIY jobs unless you are confident.
I found one pin (pin 3) on the relay had blown away, taking with it some of the PCB board, but other have experienced the solder just melting off the pin.

I bought some spare Relays, and rerouted the tracks on the PCB, and it has sort of fixed it - well it heats and seems to be working. The timer is still telling me 73mins instead of 35mins, though the cycle only takes 35mins.

Fysher and Paykel smart drive 051. takes ages to start. cold water flow seems ok. takes 2-3 times longer for full cycle. sometimes stops and hot water light flashes. yours, jagrat.

Hi just read your posting.Now what water temp have you selected for wash?Is it cold, warm, or hot?Sounds like a water flow problem to me.The water valves on your model of machine sometimes sound like they are filling correctly but they only let a little bit of water in.How long does it take to fill your machine and start agitating when you have selected low water level?Please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Hotpoint WD440 creases clothes badly & takes ages to dry

This sounds like excess steam in the drum. Check that the drain filter is clean as washer driers rely on cold water being taken in to cool the condenser tank during the drying cycle. If the filter is clear, the tank may be blocked with fluff. You have to open the machine a look for a big plastic tank, usually down the right hand side.

Washing cycle on a 40degree op. takes more than

Don't forget that the reason you bought a front loading washer is for the efficiency of the washing. In other words, front loaders use less water and get clothes cleaner without all the harsh beating that the older agitator units do.

If you're using any of the pre-programmed wash cycles, you might want to tgry another cycle to see how it does for getting your clothes clean with a shorter cycle.

If you check your owners manual, it should provide the cycle times for the various wash and water temp settings. The colder the water you use, the longer the wash cycle typically is, since it takes more agitation and time to get clothes clean, especially with front loading machines. Hope this helps.

The machine does not automatically go from one cycle to the next

You have a pitted timer most likely. First i would check out the lid switch which you may be tripping while messing with the timer. And what brand and age.
