I put ingredients in machine , set to "quick cycle" , the clock starts at 1:30 and counts down as it should. BUT nothing happens ,no movement at all. In the last part of the cycle the heating element turns on. The the machine stops.... and I am left with a blob of stuff...
Machine is 2 months old , used 3 times only. Any Ideas ??
Hi, This machine should still be under warranty, contact the store where you bought it to find out how to get it either replaced or fixed. Any attempts to fix this by anyone other than a certified repair person will void your warranty. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

I don't know about your specific model, but in most bread makers there is a removable paddle that goes in the bottom of the bread pan after you put that in the machine. The paddle usually has a flattened side on the hole which slides on to the post sticking up from the bottom of the machine. If you look at the post straight down from above it should be D shaped. The usual procedure is to put the pan in the machine, install the paddle, and then add your ingredients. Assuming you are doing this and it is still not working, trying running it through a mix only cycle (like for pizza dough) with the machine empty to see if the paddle is engaging and spinning properly. If it is not, contact the manufacturer for assistance.
The links to the manual posted here are useful!I have the BT56- without manual unfortunately. However, YD250 manual was a useful guide - it that has a similar "Yeast-drop" arrangement that seems unique to Panasonic. The other settings on the BT56 are pretty generic and easy to intuit. Only caveat...after you plug in the machine, DON'T hit the big START button. Here is the sequence:* plug in machine* Choose cycle (White/whole wheat, dough only etc)* Set timer * Put in dry ingredients first, put in wet next,load yeast in dispenser * Hit Start - this starts cycle.* To Reset, hold down start for a few secs.Hope this helps, good luck.
More details would help troubleshooting. For example, are you sure the machine has power (is the LCD display working? Is the light above the on off push button on?). The circuit breaker for the outlet it's plugged into (it is plugged in fully, right?) may have tripped, for example.
Yes, many machines warm up a little when you choose the wheat setting, also if your manual shows the cycle times for the various programs you will probably notice a different Knead time (more) vs. the basic program and that is because whole wheat flour lacks enough gluten to make a nice, large, soft loaf, so to compensate it has a longer knead. Even with that though your whole wheat loaves are probably going to be shorter than a 100 whole wheat loaf.
Many bakers ( me included) add purchased wheat gluten and add that to the flour, (be sure to remove and equal amount of w. wheat flour from the recipe if you do this) to get a softer, higher, better texture loaf.
I can't promise you that this is the solution, but some of the cycles have a relatively long preheat cycle where the bread machine just sits there. Make sure that you are on cycle #1 and it should start kneeding right away.
