Washer fills with water but wont continue washing cycle

We have an Esate top loader washer (model ETW4300TQ0). The washer will fill with water to wash the clothes, but will not proceed to the next cycle after water level is full. Can you help?

    I have the same problem. My machine is just one and a half years old. I put a load of clothes into it this morning. I set the load to Super and to Hot temp. It filled up and then it just stopped everything. I can't get it to spin or empty or anything. I tried opening and closing the lid and it does click. I also checked breakers in the house and they are just fine. Also plugged in another appliance in same outlet just to make sure it wasn't that. I don't know what to try next.

Your lid switch is bad or loose.. open and close your lid and see if you can hear clicking noises.. if not.. then your lid switch is broken.. good luck

Kenmore 700 series top loader washer. I put it on the normal cycle, the washer fills and agitates for a few minutes (maybe 5) then drains only to fill back up and finish the cycle. Is this normal?


no
some cycle the agitator during the fill cycle to get better distribution of the clothes as it is filling and then shut of the water and proceed to the wash cycle
have a technician check out the program board

For saftey the lid lock and lid down switch must be activated before the machine can advance to the next cycle. This has been the sequence for all top loaders..

My GE top load washer is about 5 months old. It fills up and runs through the agitation cycle but then stops at the end spin cycle. The clothes just sit in the water. I checked the hose for kinks and...


I have had this problem with two of my previous washers a top loader and front loader.Each time it was a faulty pump that drains the water from the tub after the wash cycle is complete. If the water does not drain from the tub the machine will not go to the spin cycle. Both of my washers were 5 or 6 years old when this occurred. If the washer is only 5 months old it should be under the manufactures warranty. Good Luck.

Slow to fill on most cycles, top loader. Kenmore washer takes forever to fill to the level needed to wash clothes.Model # 110 (92284800), Serial #CC0523352.


Turn off the water. Remove the cold water hose from the machine. Clean the sediment out of the screen on the water valve.You can remove the screen with a bent paper clip. Replace the screen after cleaning.

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin
