If you have reset it according to the manual, then you could have a stuck button switch. these buttons sometimes breaks and got stuck in the close position. test each one and observe if there is a clicking feel on each button.

look closely on the fluff button, it could be the one that is stuck.

tnx 4 using fixya,

HI
Most washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.

My washing machine fisher paykel mw511 stopped working and now only beeps and show red light on spin. But don't spin or wash clothes


Is this the same company that makes Fisher-Price Toys?
I thought so, well you get what you pay for! OK most machines have some Reset function process. Most work by unplugging the machine for 5-10 minutes (computer to reset) then plug it back in. You should get a prompt/ audio or text message (if there is a window) that alerts you that the machine is resetting itself. Then just follow by testing a Light load setting so you do not have to wait around a long time. IF...This does NOT work. THEN...My Friend...You have a BAD control board. Which is like a computer board. And those are EXPENSIVE! $200-$400. So then it becomes economics. How old is the machine 5+ yrs? Buy another Machine

Le code drum only turns one way


LE indicates a fault with the motor on the appliance.



LG suggest you switch off, wait for a minute, unplug the appliance.

Wait 15 minutes then plug it back in again.

Try the machine again.



If it's still faulty, you can try changing the Hall Sensor in the motor, this can sometimes cure the problem.



Unplug the machine and remove the rear cover. There are 4 Philips head screws. Take them out and remove the rear cover.

You should now see the rear of the motor, which is mounted to the back of the drum.

In the middle is a large bolt which holds the stator cover.

You'll need a 17mm socket and a ratchet to remove this bolt.

Remove the stator cover and place aside.



Toward the bottom-left, you will see a couple of wire bunches held to the motor by three screws. One holds a metal bracket, one actually holds a ground wire, and the last is through a plastic bracket toward the bottom. Remove these three screws and don't lose them.

Through the motor there are 6 bolts holding it onto the back of the drum assembly.

You'll need a 10mm socket and ratchet to remove them.

You will now have the motor off the back of the drum.

Disconnect the two wire harnesses from the motor.



Looking at the surface of this motor that was facing the DRUM (not the outside), you'll see two small pieces clipped onto it, toward the bottom.

The sensor you are looking to replace is the one that looks like a kitchen magnet.

It is attached by small clips. You'll see how it goes on. It's easy to remove.

Go to google and search for part number 6501KW2002A.

This will bring up an LG sensor assembly.

Double check with the supplier that this is the sensor for your appliance.

When you receive the sensor, simply reverse steps 1 through 5.

Once re assembled, try the machine again.



If still the same after this you'll need to replace the motor and/or control board.


Is this a new installation?

In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.



Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?

Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.


Has the washer been overloaded?

Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.

NOTE: Make sure the drum is not overloaded

Are there soap suds visible in the drum?

Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Hi, my front loader washing machine (Bosch Logixx 8 sensitive) has child lock written on the screen and will not start the load. ive tried switching it on and off again but it does nothing. the door is...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The Key symbol means the lock has been activated some how.

On most bosch of your class this is how you work it on & off.

Here`s how to deactivate it...

1) Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. ( if nothing is pressed within 10 sec.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display )

2) Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display.

3) Finally by pressing the "start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Let me know if this was helpful to you or not, if so please take a second and rate it accordingly.

Thank you for visiting "fixya" for your washer solution inquiry.

good luck going forward.

How do i deactivate the child lock on the bosch axxis washer


Hi

To unlock the washer press and hold 'dry' & 'spin' button. It should unlock now. If this doesn't work then press and hold "end of cycle" button for 5-10 seconds. However, if it is still locked then unplug the washer for 5 minutes and then plug it back. After plugging it back press and hold Start button for 10 seconds to unlock it. Hope this helps...

With the Door Lock display on (which is what the red key indicates), are you able to open and close the door?
If so, you probably have a defective door lock assembly. Try unplugging your machine for a couple of minutes and plug it back in to see if it resets itself.

Whirlpool Calypso Cycle Problem


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

Maytag Neptune Tl Spin settings



I would try verify that the spin cycle membrane key is not stuck/defective signaling the controller to cycle thru the spin settings. I have not experienced this issue but let’s try the Membrane Pad Test to get a start point.

Do you have the troubleshooting guide stored in the control panel? It was shipped with the machine, pull 120VAC washer power plug, remove the top three torx screws at he top back of the control panel and remove the trouble shooting guide. Rassemble and power up your machine. Follow the instructions for Membrane Pad Test. You will enter Service Mode to verify that the key pad function LED can be toggled, just press each key once except the Presoak key as described below. If you don’t have the Troubleshooting guide that came with your FAV6800A I have pasted in the test from the SM;

Enter / Exit Service Mode
To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin
Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps.
Membrane Pad Test
While in Service Mode, pressing the Presoak key will
start a membrane switch check that verifies switch
operation. All the LEDs (except Presoak ) can be toggled
or slewed by pressing the key associated with the LED or
set of LEDs. Each time either set delay arrow is pressed
the digits toggle between a blank and 8. All keys
(including the OFF button) must be pressed within 5
minutes for this test to pass. “PA” will be displayed for
five (5) seconds once all keys have been pressed and the
test is completed. Following 10 seconds of inactivity at
any point, this test will exit without any display.

Let us know your results.
