Question about Washing Machines

MWM145W will not start

Hello, The machine will not start, 1) The start button does not have a positive feel, is it a fleeting contact onto the PC board? 2) When you turn the program switch past zero there is a click somewhere, maybe like a solenoid going in and out. 3) No indication of the problem using the light sequence in the manual, just the ''program ready'' light staying on. 4) The machine has been playing up intermittently for the past two weeks. 5) Tried rebooting it from the mains socket, still no good. Regards Ian

Hi

unplug the washer, then plug a lamp in the same socket that the washer was plugged into, turn the lamp on to be sure that the receptical is still getting electricity to it. if it is then you'll need to start checking on the other suggestions, if not, maybe a bad receptical.
you said you already checked the circuit breaker.
good luck to ya Rylee

Make sure that the dispenser drawer is closed. The washer will not start if the control senses that this drawer is open. There is a magnet in the dispenser drawer that is detected by a switch when this drawer is properly closed. If this magnet fell out and it missing, then the washer will not start. You can pull out the dispenser drawer. Turn it over and check for the magnet

    You need to consider the following


    • Jammed drain pump.

    • Loose or burnt wires at the motor or timer.

    • Timer

    • Start Capacitor

    • Motor

    • Transmission

    • Improper voltage

That is probably a faulty control board. Give me the model number to get more information.

Where is the on switch on a matsui mwm145w


There isn't one. Basically, when you set it up for a specific cash program by rotating the program knob, it will switch on when you press the start/pause button. When the wash cycle is complete, you can turn the program knob to "O" at the top, which is "off".

Button will not stay down


Hi Dorothy, it's Jack at Dyson.

To ensure DC25's on/off switch works correctly, make sure you're pressing it downwards firmly. This will ensure the machine remains running and also activates the brush control swich - so when the machine is reclined into the vacuuming position, the motorised brush bar will rotate for effective carpet cleaning.

If you feel there is an actual fault with the switch we'd be happy to take some further details. Please contact the Dyson customer Helpline directly at 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi, We have an electrolux EWF1074 which is reporting error EHO There is no mention of this in the manual or on Google after a brief browse. Please advise. BK


Hello,

First of all is the machine doing anything it should not be.That alarm code does not exist on our system,the closest is EH1 and this relates to Power supply problems or a faulty PCB.To cancel press and hold the start/pause button and the nearest option button for about 5 seconds,now turn the programme knob to position 10 then hold in the start/pause button and option buttons again till alarm disappears and E00 is showing.Then turn dial to 0 then back to position 1 then back to 0 to cancel operation.

Hope this helps.

I have an older mpc 1000 & just today it started changing the programs & number of bars of the sequence I was making when I pushed the cursor.


There is probably a switch problem. IF these use the conductive rubber contact type switch buttons where a "pill" of conductive rubber is pressed onto a circuit board with traces, CLEAN the contact rubber AND the circuit board with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips. This type buttons feel "Rubbery and squishy" when pressed.

If the buttons have a hard tactile feel, then check for a bad button that might have broken internal parts and replace it... OFTEN you can tell by the "feel" when pressing compared to others.

In either case, disassembly and service is required.

Matsui mwm145w goes straight into a spin cycle


Try to move the timer to a different postion if it still does the same thing turn the timer one full turn and try turning it on again if it still does it you have a bad timer, as for the bounceing that could be casue the leg stops need to be adjusted so machine is level, You may have a bad drum roller as well.

Standby button stuck


Hello. Check all of the buttons on your unit to make sure that they are not stuck...you can feel the click they make as you push it then they pop back out as your finger pulls off. Any stuck button will lock up your microprocessor and keep the unit from turning on. All other problems will require a consumer electronics technician to trouble-shoot the turn on circuit. If you know how to use a meter and know how to solder\unsolder and require further assistance you can contact me. Good luck.
