I have encountered a similar problem. The following lights were flashing on and off:

  • On/Off.
  • Reduced creases.
  • Mini Load.
I also found that previously one of the 'lifters' inside the drum had broken off and someone had tried to put it back in place and continued to use the washing machine. After a short period of time the above mentioned flashing lights began.

I first suspected the pump, but this was fine. I then disconnected the hose which connects the hole from the drum to the pump and I found a child's sock blocking the hose. I removed the obstruction, put it back together and the machine worked perfectly. I also replaced the lifter (apparently these break quite often) and the machine has been working perfectly ever since that day.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Hi.
The sequence of flashing lights is in fact indicating an error condition on your m/c.
It indicates that the m/c has failed to drain, possibly because the pump filter is blocked.
Your m/c is fitted with a filter system for the pump,
The filter may have become blocked, see care and maintenance in your handbook, in your handbook for details on how to check and clean the filter.
Also make sure the door is shut properly.
If after you have checked all these points, and it still does not work properly, then I suggest you have someone to look at the m/c, or replace the pump if it does not appear to be working.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feedback.
thanks.

My whirlpool washer died in the middle of a wash. It has a bad electrical smell.The coupling between thw motor and trani is not broke,but the motor is very hot. New motor?


IS IT A FRONT LOAD OR TOP LOAD MACHINE??? ONLY THE TOP LOAD MACHINES HAVE A COUPLER. THERE IS NO TRANSMISSION ON FRONT LOAD ONES....

IF YOU HAVE A TOP LOAD AND YOUR MOTOR IS HOT AND WON'T START, REMOVE THE PUMP ON THE FRONT OF THE MOTOR AND TRY IT AGAIN. IF THE MOTOR STARTS, IT IS PROBABLY BECAUSE YOUR PUMP IS STUCK OR DEFECT... IF THE PUMP IS OK, YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE MOTOR. MAKE SURE THE TRANSMISSION IS TURNING (ONE SIDE FOR WASHING AND THE OTHER SIDE FOR SPINNING)...

My washer will run up until the spin cylce. I wont drain the water or spin, it just stops. My roomate followed your suggestion on this site to check the pump and pipes to make sure they were clear. He siad...


Twist timer very fast a few times and stop it on spin with the lid closed. Wiggle the timer to get the points to connect. Even if you
just get a little bump then its the timer.
If none of this works then it is the timer plus maybe something else contributing.

Don't forget to check the lid switch plunger on the lid

Hotpoint wf541 will not finish cycle it wont do a final spin then all the ligts start to flash how can this be fixed


Possibly a blocked filter.
If no filter at bottom front of washer then you need to remove lower rear cover of washer.
Remove l;arge black hose fastened to drum.
Remve and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for obstuction or blockage here as well, and look inside the pump.
If all o/k, and it still does not spin, then it could be for one of several reasons.
Hope this helps solve your prob.
Thankyou

Hot point washer wont spin i dont know how to


There may be two screws in the top ... if your filter is on the top ... otherwise pop it up (held down by spring clips). Hold it up - look inside to see what holds the front on - probably two screws at the top.

Move the front out of the way ... the drum will fall forward. Be careful of the door switch.

There should be a belt about 1/4 inch wide around the drum. If you dont see it ... that is your trouble. Find it on the floor.

Get a replacement at a appliance parts place or ...
visit www.partscinic.com . They will have it and they are also very helpful.

Expect to spend about 2 hours on this project.

Good luck with your projectc.

Same problem


Power it off at the mains for 60 mins and then rety. If it still does the same then call in a repair man as it is most likely thatthe main controller board is faulty and needs replacing.
