Perhaps your user manual could explain what the flashing LED means. First thing I would do is unplug for a minute or so, then try again. A Google search may find you a manual. I hope this helps.

You must recheck with another program and if the cycle goes on without the correct sequence then the program controller unit is faulty.
make sure that the connections are firm, the motor is manually moving and the water level sensor- pressure switch is in order.
consider the cost of a new program controller and confirm the fault, before you buy.

Buy another washing machine? Absolutely NO!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. Many washers will not go to spin or release the door lock at the end if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

check pump /pump filter electronics can sense if the pump not working at the begining of the programme try a pump only prog.Can be heater or main motor with an earth fault. you need an insulation tester to isolate the fault.

I don't know how you are administering the soap powder to the machine..but for one, its recommended that you use detergent thats made exclusively for the front loader washer, usually says "he" on the front of the LIQUID detergent, they recommend that you use liquid detergent on top of that, BUT if you have to use regular powder detergent it must be put inside the tub and NOT the pull out detergent drawer. The reason why they want you to use liquid is because the powder detergent is not concentrated and when you use it, it lathers up alot and its harder for the front loader machine to clean out the clothes and I was told that they (sales agents) have heard of soap suds and bubble floods coming from the machine due to either using the powder detergent or using too much. Hope that this helps!!

Hello,
I hope you have small hands,and you are pretty handy with them cos these seals are tricky if its your first.
First remove the nylon clip around the front of seal it will pull off from bottom.then release outer rubber,then you have to just get your hand or fingers to pull at inner rubber,there is a spring around inner rubber lip but to make things awkward there is also a concrete counterweight around this.Once you have old seal out get new one and wipe some fairy liquid around inner lip to refit make sure pointy arrow is at the top.This is the tricky bit and hard to explain but you can only do it by feel and keep trying to get a part of inner lip over casing lip once it starts it can go easy or hard you may have to try a couple of times until you can feel it is on all the way round.Once on the spring has to be fitted its also tricky,start by door switch and put a long screwdriver thru. hole for door catch try to hold with knee or get help.Work it around keep screwdriver in until spring is nearly on keep hand on spring then gently try to remove screwdriver make sure spring on fully,now fit outer seal lip and fit nylon clamp.You may find it easier to tilt machine back slighty.I do this for a living and it can go easy or hard.Best of luck.

Hi,

The problem most likely is something stuck in the water port of the drain pump. The pump is located in the front right bottom of the machine and accessible by removing the lower front panel, It is held in place by 4 small screws and is connected to the drain lines. Disconnect the power connection from the pump. Disconnect the drain lines after removing as much water possible from the drum as the water will come out of these lines when you remove them. Remove the pump, open the cover to see the impeller and hopefully you will find some object or whatever else is stuck there which will be visible and easily removed. Put the pump cover back on, replace the drain lines and screws, and reconnect the power connection to the pump.
Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,
