Why won't washing machine start?


It is most probably the door sensor that is faulty. If the sensor does not sense the door closing the machine will stay in "open door" mode and will not start with it's program.

If the machine is still under warranty, take it in for repair or have someone check it out for you. It should be a quick fix, if parts are available.

GLTF1240ASO Front Door Won't Lock/Close


Most probably your door lock is damaged. You are not supposed to force it open, you have to wait for at least 2 minutes (or till the lock sign is off) after the wash is over to open the door, never force it.
You can just google your model number and search for parts to obtain it. It is quite possible you can change it yourself. See that the line is disconnected from the mains.

hello,

solution bellow.

There is disclosed a method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus
for a washing machine that includes the steps of determining whether or not there is an error in
an automatic door opening or closing operation carried out in response to a command to open or
close the washing machine's door; determining if the erroneous operation has been
repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the door; and when erroneous operation has repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the door.
1. A method of controlling an automatic door opening/closing apparatus for a washing machine door, the method comprising the steps of: determining whether or not there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation which operation is carried out in response to a command to open or close the washing machine door;
determining if the erroneous operation is repeated more than a predetermined number of times according to consecutive incoming commands to open or close the washing machine door; and
in the event that the erroneous operation is repeated more than the predetermined number of times, ignoring a subsequent command to open or close the washing machine door.


2. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: returning the door to the washing machine to an original position in the event that the error occurs.


3. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the step of determining if there is an error in an automatic door opening or closing operation is performed on the basis of whether or not an inversion occurs in an open/closed state of the door within a prescribed period of time after an automatic door opening or closing operation is initiated.

4. A method as set forth in claim 1, further comprising the step of: clearing the number of errors in the case where the door of the washing machine has been opened or closed manually at the time of occurrence of the errors.


5. A method as set forth in claim 1, wherein said predetermined number is 3.

6. A method for controlling the operation of an automatic door mechanism in a washing machine, said method comprising the steps of: sensing a command to automatically open or close a washing machine door;
sensing whether a failure occurs in opening or closing the door in response to the command to automatically open or close the door;
incrementing a counter indicating the failure;
determining whether the counter is equal to a predetermined number; and
failing to engage the automatic door mechanism in response to a subsequent a command to automatically open or close the door if the counter exceeds the predetermined number.


7. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: returning the door to an original position if a failure is detected.


8. The method claimed in claim 6, wherein failure is indicated by a lack of a transition between a door open state and a door closed state within a predetermined time period following entry of the command to automatically open or close the door.

9. The method claimed in claim 6, further comprising the step of: clearing the counter if the door is opened or closed manually following a failure indication.

Turning the dial to any wash cycle clicks 3 times and end button flashes, won't wash at all.


You have not indicated a make and model, but this sounds like the door lock is faulty.
To test this theory, leave the door completely open and start a cycle, the w/m should have the same clicks and flashes, which more than likely is it telling you that you are trying to start a cycle with the door open. The w/m can not differentiate between a faulty door interlock and the door not being closed.
If nothing else this should give you a starting point for a diagnosis.
If you need to repost or comment please included the make and model number, on most machines this will be on the inner door frame.
Best of luck.

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.
