This machine only rinses when I raise the lid. I will lift the lid in the middle of a cycle it drains and then rinses no problem. If I put the washing machine on Gentle or another cycle other than normal it sounds like a giant jet engine and will stop its self after a few minutes.
This problem was intermentent before but not it happens everytime we try to do laundry.

Thanks

Sounds like you may have something caught in the pump - not sure I follow the Lid thing though, with the lid lifted - the machine should not run at all - can you talk more about that ?

It's not going through its cycle properly The only time I can get it to drain is if I move the dial to rinse or when i lift the lid up If I don't do this it remains full of water if I raise the lid and close it it drains and starts the rinse cycle
So if I watch the machine in the normal cycle and it get to the rinse and spin part it just rolls right through it washing away ok and leaves the tube full of water when it stops But If I lift then lid and then shut it when it shoud be in rinse mode, it starts to rinse spin and will complete the wash

But before we get too far, the original poster needs to look more at this roaring sound... possibly the tub bearing,seal leaking

If I put the washing machine on Gentle or another cycle other than normal it sounds like a giant jet engine and will stop its self after a few minutes.


Possibly more than one speed energizing in motor until tripping overload - diagram mentions a 4 position speed switch, can you try the various settings while using normal/delicate/perma press cycles ?

Part isn't horrendously expensive, but only you really know how much work its done, how long you've had it, how happy you've been with it's performance etc - if you are looking for an excuse to replace it, could be a dealbreaker.

Hey Everybody!!
Again thank you for all your help.

I wanted to follow up with you guys on this problem I was having. I fixed the problem by replacing the Water Supply Faucets and it fixed the problem I was having.

You see the old cold water faucet would turn all the way up to full blast...so I got to thinking that maybe water pressure to the machine might make somethings go goofy. I don't know how the machine knows when and when not to go or when and when it full of water...I don't have a clue. Something just struck me that if the machine is only getting 1/3 of the cold water that it probably wants than there has to be some kind of Fuzzy Logic that the machine probably wouldn't run right.

So like I said change the water supply valves on the wall and after a couple of loads it readjusted itself and works like it brand new.

Who would have thunk

Thanks again for all you do
