Question about Washing Machines
My 3yr old simpson eziset 550 stops midway of rinse cycle, after wash(the wash knob set to Normal), it rinses, then stops, and make loud long beep sound, the green light at Wash Choice rotating between Extra Dirty, Regular, Light&Fast. Before stopping, the machine shakes a lot more than usual, it looks like going off balance. The clothes are soaked with water, not like half of the tub, but enough to keep the clothes all wet, and the soap is still there. I tried to keep rinsing by restarting the machine, and set the Wash knob to Rinse&Spin, this time it also stops after a while (same symptoms), but the clothes are clear of soap (as a result of rinsing). Hope I describe the problem well, feel free to ask for more info if needed, any tips are appreciated, thanks in advance.
Simpson eziset 550: model#35S550: The machine wont start, green wash light keeps flashing. Rinse and spin lights are orange and red respectively. The wash choice and water temp light are both orange and at the middle. I have checked the lid magnet and looks ok. i have also checked the pump for blockage and its ok. Kindly help.

I had the same problem before, but removing the kink in drain hose does the trick. Maybe yours is more complicated but try it.

Okay...I asked you a question in your other posting before I saw this one. This is a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. Some lid switches are located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plunger on the lid itself. Make sure the plunger is not broken off. This will also keep the switch from not working. On some model washers the lid switch is located on the left-hand side, in the rear, mounted under the casing near the lid hinge. It is activated by a rod on the lid. Sometimes the rod can be adjusted if it is not making good contact with the switch. In either case, if the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $35 and is fairly simple to replace if you follow the steps below:
First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. Or, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:
1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.
2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.
3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.
You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job.
Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:
1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.
2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.
3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console.
I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

There is no more convenient and effective troubleshooting of a machine other than knowing first the exact model number of the machine. We may not be able to help you determine and address the problem unless the exact model number of the machine is stated explicitly. Troubleshooting may push through only when the exact model number of the is known. You may have stated it in your previous exchange of messages with a fellow expert, if there's any, but I cannot view the transcript of those.
You don't have to accept or reject and rate this post to add information or post comments and follow-up questions should you need further assistance. But accepting a solution does not stop you from communicating with an expert. You may continue communicating with the expert as long as you need assistance regarding the issue stated herein.
