Simpson washing machine troubleshooting
Wash cycle taking too long
This indicates that the filters are blocked which is slowing the water entry, causing your appliance to take longer than normal to fill and operate. Other reasons for this can be a kinked inlet hose, a blocked pump, or an out of balance load.
The door won’t open
All front loaders have a safety lock on the door which prevents the door from opening during wash cycles and stays locked for two minutes after the cycle has ended. If the door remains locked this points to an issue with the door switch or a faulty interlock. Top loaders may have issues with the hinges.
This problem may be related to a blocked pump, that is preventing the water from draining, or an obstruction or kink in the drain hose. Excessive detergent can also cause suds to block the pump.
Unable to fill
If the filters in the inlet hoses are blocked this will cause this problem. Other reasons could be a kinked or damaged inlet hose, issues with the water inlet valve or water pressure. Bear in mind the door needs to be securely closed to allow the filling to begin.
