There is nothing more frustrating than a washer that stops mid-cycle. You are now left with dirty and wet clothes and is an issue that needs fixing fast.
Washing machines are quite complicated bits of kit but do not worry. Our team of experts are here to help you prolong the life of your washer and fix all faults.
As well as our technician’s advice, there are some common reasons why your washer stops mid-cycle.
On washing machines that you load from the top, there is a switch that signals to the machine that the door is locked and the cycle can start. If the lid switch malfunctions, the machine will think the door has been opened mid-cycle and so stops.
Inspect your lid switch and see if it is level and press down on it to see if the spring is working as it should. When pressure is applied, if the lid switch does not spring back, it needs to be replaced.
The water inlet valve is the part of the washer that controls the flow of water into the drum. If broken, either no water will enter the drum in the cycle or too much water will flow in. In either case, the machine will detect that there is too much or too little water and switch off. This could be the reason your washer stops mid-cycle.
If this is the problem, a new water inlet valve needs to be fitted so that the appliance can regulate the water flow correctly. Your washer should then run a whole cycle without turning off.
