Washer Works For About 10 Mins Maybe 15 And Then Stops


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Well posted a couple of times before and have always got out of jail so to speak but now I fear sadly for the worst.

Washing machine starts ok on E cycle - colours@ 40 and ingests liquid no problem, mixes up liquid to get lather no problem and works for about 10 mins maybe 15 and then stops. TBH I am not sure/can't remember what the next cycle would be (ingest more hot or rinse) but all I get is that electrical hum of death which would stay like that for ever unless I move the dial round click by click until the machine finally responds to the spin cycle.

Any ideas would be extremely welcome, as the old girl was working perfectly yesterday and has served me extremely well. Perhaps selfishly I was hoping (baring limescale build up) to keep the old girl her for a few more years and maybe that's not of the question. We will see.

Cheers

Is it an old hot and cold fill washing machine? No cold water supply would account for those symptoms. (Troubleshooting not filling faults)

Hi Washerhelp (Andy)

I think I need shooting, please ignore my post and move on to a genuine person in need rather than a knacker who turned the cold water supply off to check for smells behind the washer and then forgot to turn the water supply back on after I reconnected the blue pipe. Sincere Apologies. The old girl is back in faithful service.

Thank you again however for coming to my rescue
