I think all your problems are tied to one cause. Check your drain hose going to the wall, if it is too far down the pipe you will get siphoning and will cause the above symptoms. put the drain hose down the pipe no more than a foot and report back.

You have two problems. First, you may have a bad water valve, and second, you have a bad lid switch. I would replace both items.

Before replacing the water valve, I would check for soap residue in the bottom of the tub where the plastic hose going to the water level switch is connected. If there is residue I usually add some vinegar in the tub, wait for a period, then blow in the plastic tube to clear it out, or you can use a funnel to dump vinegar down the plastic hose.

Thanks, I too feel the lid switch cud be the cause (since its not the timer) and I may as well switch the water valve too, to cover all bases and save time.
Appreciate your help.

A very common problem is soap residue blocking the plastic tube to the water level switch, look at this first before spending money, cheap fix!

HI,

Sorry to sound so ignorant.

There IS soap collected on the rim of the lid - at the back end - close to where the water fills from. That I can clean off.
Where exactly is the pipe located that you are speaking of and how do I access it? The drum is in the way...should I just throw water all along the rim and wipe with a sponge or something????
Many thanks.

Follow the plastic line from the water level switch down to the plastic bowl at the bottom of the tub. Check that bowl for soap residue!

HI

Do I have to open up the washer to do this, as with the tub in between I cant feel all the way down the sides, and from what you say the bowl is right at the bottom. Sorry to be so dumb but I am really clueless about washers. I am trying to understand though. thanks.
