Washer wont start door wont unlock

The F26 indicates a door switch failure which means the control doesn't see the door is open or shut and this is why you can't start a cycle.

Make sure the door is shut all the way and try another cycle but most likely this error indicates a failure of the door switch or a loose connection at the door switch or control. The first image below shows you how to remove the top of the washer and the connections on the main control that should be checked. You should push-pull the connections and make sure there tight on the control. The control is located on the right hand side towards the back.

If the connections are all tight then checking the circuits with a volt/ohm meter would be next. The image below will help you ohm the circuits if you have a meter and are comfortable using it. Remember to unplug the washer first.

The door latch assembly is most likely the cause of the problem but it's more difficult to access than the control. The 2nd image shows how to access the door lock switch to check connections and/or replace.

Here is the door lock to order.

Stunt copter won't sync

I presume you have lights & sound on the controller when you turn it on - fourteen quick beeps and then a different toned fifteenth beep. The screen lights (blue). Insert the battery (lettering facing up toward the helo fuselage unitl it's seated all the way - an LED inside the fuselage, visible from behind, quick flashes and then begins a slower blinking.

Once the helo battery is inserted, turn on the controller, which starts the aforementioned beeping. On the last controller beep the helo's LED will stay lighted, indicating the helo & controller are synched.

I had a problem making sure the battery was inserted all the way into the helicopter. You'll know it's inserted properly when the LED inside the helo flashes.

HE2 Plus Washer starts then shuts off immediately.

Aren't microprocessor controlled appliances wonderful? Especially when the code is flawed! No wonder the space program bit the dust!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This is a common issue with washer however; your whirlpool duet washer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a control locked alarm on a whirlpool duet washer??

Press any of the buttons on the control panel to see if the buttons are operational or check to see if the "Control Locked" indicator light is lit. If the control panel is operational, you may mistakenly lock the door.

Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off.

It says the door is not locked

There are two switches in the door latch and they both need to engage. Check it with voltmeter. Most likely bad door latch assy.

Im having trouble with my maytag neptune tl washer it wont finish the spin cycle

Please see the following Whirlpool / Maytag service manual for Neptune washers.$FILE/Maytag_Neptune_Washer.pdf

On page 3-1 the manual explains that if the washer shuts off during the spin cycle, the problem points to a weak spring in the door lock mechanism.

"Shuts OFF In The Middle Of The Spin Cycle:
During the spin cycle, the machine control
monitors the door lock mechanism to ensure
the door is locked. This is done through the
door lock enable switch. During "lock mode,"
the shaft of the door lock mechanism is
pressed forward by the door lock wax motor,
and the shaft presses in the button of the door
lock enable switch. If the machine control
board sees the switch OPEN during the spin
cycle, the machine control board will automatically
shut the washer OFF. This is caused
by a weak spring in the door lock wax motor.
Replace the complete door lock mechanism.

Maytag Neptune front load washer with FL code

The "FL" is indicating that the door has failed to lock or it locked but the control does not sense the door has locked.

It could be caused by:
faulty door lock solenoid
loose wire connection
faulty door lock switch
faulty door lock sense switch
bad control board

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer.
but try this first just in case....unplug it for 1 minute plug back in and see if the fault code clears.
good luck.
