SOURCE: Washer won't start. Power is on, pressed

Hi - if that red led light comes on as you press start - then the display module is faulty - however it's not always the case - often its the motor controller module thats faulty..

Your call - display module first and hope it works or controller.

The manufacturers recommended procedure is to replace the display module (primary) if it still doesnt work then replace the control module (secondary).

Cheers

Hello Scott, welcome to FixYa.

I understand you have a GW712 Fisher & Paykel washer where "after filling, the hot and cold water temp lights flash", correct ?

According to Fisher & Paykel this can mean one of these scenarios is at the root of the error...

1) The taps have not been turned on.

2) Inlet hose screens may be blocked.

3) The hoses may be kinked.

4) The drain hose is too low or the drain hose is pushed into the standpipe too far and the water is siphoning out of the machine.

5) The flow rate of the supply water is too slow.



To address this, and as long as water is indeed entering the unit here`s what I find is most common (when dealing with the symptom you`ve describe) the hose screens at the water valve have become obstructed or partially at least, thus you still get through a cycle...even if having to attempt twice or up until the rinse when it needs "cold' water again...I would focus on the cold water line.

In my experience the other scenarios are less likely as well as more obvious when they occur. I would suggest you turn the water off and check and clean the screens at either end of the hoses (if applicable to your hoses...some only have screens in the valve) as shown in this example...

Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. If not we can move forward from there, but please let me know. Thank's for coming to FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

For the Elite (HE) machines:

Press 'STOP' twice, press 'POWER', choose a wash cycle (such as 'NORMAL'), select wash options (water temp), press 'START' to finish the reset sequence.

Other Kemore electronic washers:

Unplug the machine for a minute, plug it in. Press 'PAUSE/CANCEL' twice.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Front loader stops mid cycle and blinks Er until start button is pressed, the cycle will continue, and sometimes repeats this scenerio three -four times each load. any thoughts anyone?


The control board has detected an error. Press any button to wake the machine then wait for 5 seconds. Press and hold the START/PAUSE and CANCEL buttons simultaneously then the failure code will appear in the display as an "E" followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters as long as the buttons are held. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator lights will flash. Post back the code for further advice.

On my Maytag Washing Machine...Sometimes my water selector works... sometimes it doesnt. Sometime hot will come out when set on cold and sometimes cold will come out when set on hot.. Sometimes it works...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Just reading this it sounds like the water temp selector switch is acting up. You did not provide a model number so this is just an outright guess to help you. Try this if you have the button type start mashing the buttons several times between temps. Do it with conviction. Your cycling the switch to unstick or clean off the contacts in the switch. If the cycle temp switch fails while doing this; changing the switch was the next recomendation to correct the temp problem. You should cycle the switch at least 30 times methodically. Press, change temp, press repeatedly. Then check your cycle water temps for hot and cold as selected. Depending upon model you could have a problem with the water inlet valve. I will wait for a response before commenting on that.

If you need specific model information I need your Model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
