WHIRLPOOL WFS1071AW washing machine - lo lights, no nothing!

Hi, My WHIRLPOOL WFS1071AW washing machine has stopped working from one day to the other. The issue is there is no clicking, nor error code, nor LED, there's simply nothing! Checked the plug, measured power going into the machine. All good. Took the timer appart and found one of the resistors close to where the power goers in was blown. Couldn't read the coloured rings properly due to discolouration from overheating. Replaced it with a 27KOhm which didn't fix it. Would like to find out if I got the right one. Also there seems to be a relais of some sort directle where the 240V lead enteres the machine. Could that be the problem also? Didn't measure power on the timer board at all, can't tell if power is actually getting to the board. Any suggestions or help would be amazing! Really don't have the cash to buy a new washing machine right now! Thanks Damien

the 3 things i would consider would be the interlock,on/off switch or timer, Just because the door clicks it does'nt mean the interlock is'nt faulty there is no test you can do to prove it apart from trying a new one. also the on/off switch can melt remove facia to gain access to the switch it will help if you also loosen the timer, which will also allow you to see if the timer has shorted where the black connector block on the top of the unit goes if there is a track blown you will need to change interlock aswell. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: the lights and fan didn't

There may be a reset, but it may be due to a power surge burning out the controller board.

I have a WFS1071AW-7.5kg. It is stopping mid cycle and showing a red "Clean Pump" light on the front panel. Where is the pump and how do I clean it? Your help would be appreciated.

The pump is hidden below the removable kick plate at the bottom of the machine. Hold the plinth on either side and pul it downwards and outwards to remove it. The filter is unscrewed by turning anticlockwise.

This is covered in page 11 of your manual, a pathetically poor scanned PDF copy of which is supplied by whirlpool Australia if you go to this web address:

Enter WFS1071AW As the commercial code and select language ENGLISH

Note: This model has no drain hose to get rid of residual water, suggest you tip the machine back 45 degrees and have a towel ready to catch any leaked water.
