Whirlpool model LCE4332PQ1 will not run.

Unplugged it and plugged back. All light flash twice, then 'normal load' light flashes continually, hot water and cold water temp lights stay on continuously. Pressing start/power button does nothing. Help!

SOURCE: Fills with water and then

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

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.

I have a Whirlpool duet front load washer model #WFW8500SR02 ,it stopped before the cycle was done and flashed i can't get it to do anything.the lights still come on and it clicks like it...

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F1 error in your whirlpool cabrio indicates bad control and should be replaced to resolve the error code. However, you can contact Whirlpool as well prior to replacing the control yourself as I have seen whirlpool paying for the parts themselves just because this is known to be a common issue. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a whirlpool duet front load washer. when I put a load in on normal cycle, at some point it was flashing an H and an F on the display. Tried to pause it and unlock the door, but nothing happened....

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool's 'FH' decodes as 'no water inlet'- I suspect 'Hot Fault'!
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Normal cycle light flashing

If its the ormal led flashing that is normally caused by a stuck key ing the key pad. Might try unplugging and plugging back in but sounds like you need a new touchpad.
