Washer won't start and the door is closed tight


Replace the door lock, takes about 10 mins. Just replaced mine. Ordered it from Amazon for less than 40.00. You take the top off and unscrew the lock from the front. Reach in and pull up, unplug old one, plug in new one. put new one back in the holes, screw it in tight. Put the top back on and your done. Don't forget to unplug it before you start.

Want to disengage lid lock on maytag centennial


I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK

Error message dE


HELLO,

WHAT THIS SIMPLY MEANS IS THAT THE DOOR OF THE WASHER IS NOT PROPERLY CLOSE OR LOCK.

WHAT YOU ARE TO DO TO FIX UP THIS PROBLEM IS, FIRST OF ALL PUT OFF THE WASHER FROM POWER SUPPLY THEN PUT IT ON AGAIN AFTER SOME TIME, THEN OPEN THE DOOR OF THE WASHER AND CLOSE IT BACK AND / THEN MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR IS PROPERLY CLOSE OR LOCK.

GOOD LOCK AND THANKS FOR USING FIXYA.

I have a zanussi turbo dry built-in washer/dryer built-in 1200, Mod zjd . 125, and I do not know how to use it. HELP! Thanks, Cindy


Hey, Just load the washer but do not over load. These combo washer dryers are strictly for smaller loads. You should have a drawer to the left that you place the soap and softer and bleach. Set to the washer to washer. The door should lock automatically. Then set your dryer setting to the the Heat temperature that you want. 100 degrees is ok to start with. then it will adjust itself as it goes through the cycles you have set. Enjoy the machine should work. If it does not look to make sure that the door is closed all the way. Sometimes you have to open the door and reset it and shut the door or while it is closed gently push on it till you hear a small clicking noise. ENJOY YOUR WASHER DRYER COMBO

Owners manual


Dear Mupin,
ngafam at your service.

I under stand you have this problem!
I have a kelvinator K605 washing machine that has suddenly halved it's wash time! I can't find my user manual.

At the bottom of this page is a web site for Kelvinator manuals from fixya.com.
But I have some most important advice for you to read first!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This machine is very and an energy gussler!
My advice is not to put your good money into bad!
It's not worth spending a dime to repair!
The new machines cost so much less to operate and will pay for them selves in only a few years!
And the new machines will not wear out you clothes so fast! Top load machines used to use 54 gallons a load.
Todays top load Speed Queen washer uses only 34 gallons!
cost only 549 and out lasts every machine on the market.
It's tested at 8 loads a week for 25 years.
has a 3 year warranty compared to the 1 year of all the rest and a TEN YEAR TRANSMISSION WARRANTY, compared to ONE YEAR of all the rest!
Today you can get 10 to 15 years depending how much you spend on the washer!

The washers and dryers today use so much less water,electricity,and detergent that they pay for them selves after a only a few years.
My advise is, do not put good money into a washer that is over 10 years old!
It is less expensive to buy, run, and operate a new efficient machine!
You will see you water and electric bill reduced!!!!!!!!!
Speed Queen commercial grade top loader uses only 34 gallon of water compared to the others at 54 gallons!
Their front load washer uses, (GET THIS) ONLY 13.9 GALLONS of water and washes in 35 minutes and the clothes are cleaner and last longer cause it uses water agitation instead of a vain to wear out your clothes! How about spinning at 1000 RPM and the clothes come out so dry they are only in the dryer half the time than all the other machines! Thus half the gas or electric bill!!
All my employees have replaced their laundry pairs with Speed Queen!
My Guys call it the, "No Brainer Machine!"

I hope you can utilize the good advice I so enjoy sharing with all the good people we talk to!

Washer door pops open during wash cycle


Start the washer in a cycle. When the door locked light comes on, before unit gets to full of water, see if you can pull door open. If so, you probably have a broken latch. The wax motor is activating the switch, but latch is not actually closing. There was a door latch upgrade for some of these models.
