I am looking for Qal verbs in yiqtol and wayyiqtol that are spelled plene (with waw like יכתוב), but excluding ע''ו verbs. I have trouble getting the right results.

With a minor adjustment (?ו* instead of *ו*) I received the right results, but the reason I didn't get the right results before is that I didn't add the final part of the inflection (ו*-). What is its function?

It removes the plural forms. It may not be needed with your change.

It actually does need the addition, but I don't understand why without this addition it finds plural forms. Shouldn't ?ו* exclude plural forms because of the requirement of one following letter after the waw?

No, because without quotes you are defining the lexical form, the quotes define inflected forms.

I did this search for, for example, Ezekiel, but somehow it does not find the forms אשפוך (Ezek.7:8), אמלוך (Ezek.20:33), תמוד (Ezek.45:3), or יעבור (Ezek.48:14). How is this possible?

I did exactly my search and it found all three of your examples, 22 hits total.

With your search I found 23 forms including forms like יוכל which I didn't want. Therefore, I searched with the minor change I indicated earlier (inflexion: ?ו* instead of *ו*) and I get only 16 excluding also the forms like אמלוך. I tried to add my screen picture but did not succeed.
