SOURCE: whirlpool awo 3761/5/s

have you checked that there is not a blockage in the outlet pipe or that it is not kinked?sometimes if the pipe is lying to low (ie creating a u-bend) this can prevent water getting in & out & so the machine interprets it as either taps off or the pump needs cleaned (this has happened to me numerous times :) )

I don't know if this is a real solution but it wokred for me. I just unplugged it for about 10 minutes and then plugged it back in. The flashing stopped and I was then able to resume normal function.

SOURCE: Can't get washer to start again after pushing pause/cancel button

sounds like central control unit problem, you can check for diagnostic mode operation by setting (door closed) drain/spin, no spin, pressing prewash 4 times in 5 secs pressing prewash again will advance through diagnostic cycle. replacing user interface may also be necessary

Machine was working fine but I stopped it twice to add new garments now the add a garment and wash light are on but when I try to start it nothing happens


its a washing machine built be a man so its none to smart you have confused it to much by asking it twice to do the same job,,,,,,try turning it off then give it time to forget the last job you give it to do, turn it back on and tell it to rince and spin,, that may help it get its drain back in the box?

I have a whirpool duet. the door is on lock mode and i can not cancel. what can i do


This has happened to me...unplug and plug back in. If possible, start the machine on a normal wash cycle. It will start, then the door will unlock at the 'add a garment' portion of the cycle (usually a few seconds into it). Hope this works!

I have a Whirlpool Duet Sport, brand new. It keeps asking to add a garment when the washer is jam-packed with clothes. Is it a malfunction, does the "add a garment" light ever shut off?
