First and foremost, check your water inlet valve. If water doesn't come into the machine, it generally wont start. A faulty inlet valve has to be replaced by a brand new one.

Secondly, it would appear that you have a faulty lid switch (door switch). Try replacing this as well. If the door is not recognised as being closed, the machine wont start.

Lastly, I would re-check the control board for faulty wiring. If you are not experienced with these kind of tasks, I would recommend calling in a qualified repairman. If your machine is old, and the cost of repairs is unwarranted, then the best alternative is to probably go in for a new machine altogether.

Hope that helps!

If you replaced the control board, then it sounds like there could be some wiring issues. If its having problems with not only selecting different cycles but the lock and water dispensing, then either there is something wrong with the wiring or the computer/control board wasn't installed properly.

LE error
then your machine still has water in it from the last spin/ wash

How do I unlock a whirlpool duet washer


from a previous discussion:

Wait at least three minutes after the end of the cycle before attempting to unlock your Whirlpool washer. The door will not unlock until the motor speed equals 0 and 180 seconds have elapsed since the motor control unit received the "Stop" command. If the water in the washer is warmer than 122 degrees Fahrenheit or the water level is set higher than Wool, Delicate or Hand Wash, the washer must drain before the door latch will unlock 2 Hold down the "Control Lock" button on your Whirlpool washer for three seconds at the end of the washing cycle. Listen, and when you hear the unlatching sound, the door should open.3 If your Whirlpool washer did not unlock at the end of Step 1, press and hold the "End of Cycle" button for five seconds to manually reset your washing machine.4 Unplug your Whirlpool washer and leave it unplugged for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, plug your washer back in. The washer's programming should be reset and the door should open.5 Manually unlock the door of your Whirlpool washing machine. Make sure to unplug the appliance before completing the manual unlock. Use a screwdriver to remove the metal strip, called the toe panel, at the bottom of the washing machine. Once you've removed the toe panel, reach up inside the front panel of the washer and feel around for the door latch. Locate the tear-drop shaped tab at the bottom of the door latch and pull it gently. When you hear a click, the door should open.

    Need to reset the key fob on acura 3.5 rl 98 and dont know how


    It is a PAIN. You have to be very precise and have good timing. I had to repeat the whole thing about 4 times before it worked. As a side note, a great place to read EVERYTHING about your car is at rl.acurazine.com it is terrific.


    • This system accepts up to two transmitters.
    • Entering the programming mode cancels all learned
    transmitter codes, so none of the previously
    programmed transmitters will work. You must
    reprogram all the transmitters once you're in the
    programming mode.

    1. Open the driver's door.

    2. Push up the driver's door master power door lock to
    the unlock position. Hold it there for the rest of this
    procedure.

    3. Insert the key in the ignition switch, then remove it.
    Repeat this four more times within 10 seconds.
    (Steps 3 and 4 must be completed within 10
    seconds, or the system will exit the programming
    mode.)

    4. Insert the key in the ignition switch. Make sure the
    power door locks cycle to indicate that the system
    has entered programming mode.

    5. Press the "LOCK" or "UNLOCK" button on the
    transmitter. Make sure the power door locks (all
    except the driver's door) cycle to indicate that the
    transmitter has been accepted.

    6. To program a second transmitter, press its "LOCK"
    or "UNLOCK" button within 10 seconds.

    7. Release the master power door lock switch to exit
    the programming mode.

    Pushing the pause / start button will unlock the door in all but the sanitary cycle. If in sanitary cycle, you may have to turn off power, then turn power back on.

    LG Washing Machine Model : WD658 When using the function "Rinse & Spin", the timer decreases when rinsing. However, the timer decreases and stops at 9 minutes. This results the machine...


    Try setting a lower spin speed. You may have a bulky load which the washer is having a difficult time getting up to the high speed spin you have selected. Also, did you know that on most LG washers, you can do just a spin without a rinse? Just turn the washer power on, then, without selecting a cycle, just push the spin speed selector to select the spin speed desired. This should set the cycle for about a 12 to 14 minutes pump and spin only. Then push start. You can spin that bulky load at the lowest spin, then try it again at the next faster spin if needed, without adding rinse water.

    LE error after full cycle toward end of wash it comes up with an error. not sure if it LE or upside down F E? Anyone have this prob?


    LE toward the end of cycle probably means you had a bulky load which you tried to spin out at the high spin speed setting. Use a low spin speed with bulky loads. For this load now, just put power on and without selecting a cycle, push the spin speed selector button until a low speed comes up (should be about a 14 minute display) then push start to do a pump and spin only cycle.

    I am not able to use the hand held lock/unlock now. The driver door lock tries to work, but it won't. If I push the lock down manually, it will lock all locks. What could be wrong?


    Note:
    Entering the programming mode cancels all learned keyless remotes, so none of the
    previously programmed remotes will work. You must reprogram all of the keyless
    remotes once you are in the programming mode. You must complete each step within 5 seconds of the previous step to keep the
    system from exiting the programming mode.

    1. Turn ignition switch to ON (II)
    2. Press the LOCK or UNOCK button on one of the remotes. (An unprogrammed
    remote can be used for this step.)

    3. Turn ignition switch to LOCK (0)
    4. Repeat steps 1, 2 and 3 two more times using the same keyless remote used
    in step 2

    5. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II)
    6. Press the LOCK or UNLOCK button the same remote. Make sure the power door
    locks cycle to confirm you are in programming mode.

    7. Press the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each remote you want to program. Make
    sure door locks cycle after you push each remote button to confirm system has
    accepted the remote.

    8. Turn the igniton switch to LOCK (0) to exit programming mode.
    9. Test remote(s)

    Whirlpool control locked


    Power shd be on. Press and hold "end of cycle" button for 3 seconds. Always wait for 2 minutes after the wash is over for the machine to release the door lock; an inbuilt safety device. Never force washer doors, you'll have probs.
