My machine starts and then flashes F12 and stops working what's wrong please?


Deborah,

if your machine is a Hotpoint/Indesit the F-12 error code is a communication error between the main pcb and the display pcb. No simple fix im afraid, a new main pcb is required.

you will need to contact the manufacturer.

Wt960 is flashing F12 and wont work


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

It wont start. the display keeps flashing and wont display any of the washing times for any of the functions


Hi,
Check the contact switches first. The hood hinges had become loose. My machine would not respond until the hinge was repaired by tightening the screws. Please let us know the make and model of the washing machine. Thank You for contacting Fixya.com
