Do you ever find yourself washing clothes only to find out that the washer has stopped working?
This happens to me quite often.
I recently had my washing machine stop working during the middle of a load.
I thought it would be a quick fix but it turned out to be a nightmare.
This blog post is about how to troubleshoot a washing machine that won’t start.
Washing machine stops at rinse cycle
Your washing machine has stopped working because the water level is low. It needs to be refilled with water. To refill the washer, turn off the power switch and remove the plug from the wall outlet. Then open the door and pour in enough water to fill the tub. Close the door and wait until the water fills the tub. Turn the power back on and let the machine run again.
Basic steps to resolve this problem
To solve this issue, you need to check if the drain hose is clogged. This could happen if the drain hose gets blocked by hair or other debris. In such cases, you need to clean the drain hose using a brush or a vacuum cleaner. If the drain hose is not clogged, then you need to check whether the water level is low or not. If the water level is low, then you need to fill the washer with water. After filling the washer, you need to close the door and wait for the water to fill the tub completely. Once the water reaches the top of the tub, start the wash cycle. If the water level is still low after running the wash cycle, then you need to empty the water from the tub. Empty the water from the tub and then refill the tub with new water. Start the wash cycle again.
