  1. Washing Machine Suddenly Stop on Wash Cycle?

    It's always at the front of the machine at the base Washing Machine Pump Filter There are other things that can cause the water to not drain properly too including the plumbing Washing Machine Won’t Drain Water
  2. It's extremely unusual for a washing machine so young to be causing marks. The main source of marks on laundry from a washing machine is the small gap between the revolving drum and the door seal. If you peel it back check that there isn't any build up of grease, grime or limescale. Laundry can get caught in this gap and dragged around picking up marks. If it's a washer dryer also check at the top of the door seal where the big flange is that the hot air on the drying cycle comes into the drum. Other than that I can only advise carefully eliminating all the points in the following articles - Grease marks on clothes after washing Washing not getting clean in washing machine
  3. Washing Machine Suddenly Stop on Wash Cycle?

    Maybe the fault is that it can't pump out the water properly. Have you checked the pump filter for blockages?
  4. Electrolux EWT1315 E90 error

    Communication error could be a connection problem between the control panel and the PCB, or a fault on either the PCB or control panel, or a fault with them both. If you check all connections and wires between them and find nothing it's a big gamble trying to replace either the PCB or control panel.
  5. Hoover VisionTech Washer dead

    Yes if you get a direct short like that it can often blow the PCB. Sadly most of them don't seem to be protected by a fuse, which seems ridiculous.
  6. Beko washing machine

    Many thanks for the update. It just goes to show the difficulty with noises. Underwire's from a bra usually make a scraping noise.
  7. Washing Machine Suddenly Stop on Wash Cycle?

    Does it take in any water? If it can't take in water it will stop.
  8. Level of washing machine

    Yes I would double check that the washing machine is level from front to back as well as side to side. If the washing machine was leaning back, then combined with a heavy load it might be possible for the drive belt to catch on the back casing. In my opinion this would be a bad design. The parts are pretty crammed inside these days especially with larger drum capacity machines. Other than that are metal to metal sound should not be ignored. Please let us know what you find, or what the engineer finds if he still comes.
  9. Samsung WF1804WPN Washing Machine 3E error

    Hello. The 1st video shows a motor that has a slot on one of its mountings so that the drive belt tension can be adjusted. Most motors these days are fixed and cannot be adjusted for tension. They are designed to be vert tight and if they become slack and worn the belt needs replacing. The 1st type with the slot allows for the tension on the drive belt to be adjusted and tightened as the belt wears. If your motor is mounted on fixed mounts with no slot available I would fit it properly and tighten all the bolts up 1st. If by any chance it has a slot so that belt tension can be adjusted I would tighten all the motor bolts just gently hand tight so that the motor will still fairly easily move up and down on the slot but not be too loose. If the drive belt is coming off it is usually caused by the motor and the drum pulley being out of line. If the motor isn't out of line make sure the drum pulley isn't loose. Read my article here - Belt Keeps Coming Off Washing Machine The drive belt in the picture from your last comment looks extremely slack btw. It needs to be tight - details in my article.
  10. Whirlpool FSCR 10432

    It's not an error code as far as I'm aware. The only thing I could think of at the moment is to make sure that none of the buttons on the control panel are sticking. This can happen especially if anything ever got spilled above it, or even in some kitchens you can get a buildup of dirt and grime from cooking or frying that can cause delicate control panel buttons to stick.
  11. non return valves??

    Hello Andy. Yes it may well be worth checking that. If it is related to this then of course it won't stop water backing backup into the water supply, it would just mean it less detectable if it isn't being contaminated. A permanent solution would still need to be getting a tap fitted that has anti-siphoning valve.
  12. Washing machine water level gauge

    Hello Simon. Sorry but I don't understand your request. Do you mean the pressure switch by any chance? If so you have to fit the one made for any particular machine. If you wanted to use it for a different purpose I doubt anyone failed to help you regarding the water height. Pressure systems are set up to let in a certain amount of water but the calculations are all set up according to the size of the drum, the size of the pressure chamber, the size of the pressure chamber tubing etc.
  13. Regarding the hose from the soap dispenser to the tub getting blocked I would have to say that there is no other real explanation other than it's a bad design. It must be too thin, and or maybe have a bend in it? It may be that the design of the hose is okay as long as you have a nice high water pressure. Do you have low water pressure to the drawer? If the water pressure was adequate it should surely flush everything easily down into the drum.

    There is one valve that should only produce a trickle of water, although the restriction in pressure is often achieved at the point where its hose connects to the plastic condenser chamber. It’s possible there is a strong flow restricted in the valve. This is the water supply for the drier section. It should be easy to work out which solenoid supplies the drier’s condenser chamber. Any other solenoids should supply full water pressure to the soap dispenser. One usually supplies the fabric softener as described in my previous reply. If by any chance there are two more they must be for the main fill and rinses and a pre-wash valve. It’s possible that the valve is faulty inside or bunged up with something. It may need the whole solenoid assembly replacing. If you swapped over the wires and the last rinse still takes in water that seems to confirm it’s not a problem with power being sent to the valve.

    That’s good that you didn’t spend a fortune on a pcb Most washing machines have a double cold water valve. One side is for the main wash and rinses and the other is for the fabric softener. As the fabric softener’s solenoid is only activated once per cycle and the other multiple times sometimes the main solenoid fails. If wires are long enough you could try swapping the wires over to see if the rinse water comes in. Alternatively test the solenoids with at least one wire disconnected with a continuity test meter. They should all have the same resistance. It’s very high resistance though.
