Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

3 x Flashing Red Lights and 2 x Solid Green

Hello fellow forumites, I can see there has been a lot of people with the same terrible condenser dryer as me, the Whirlpool AWZ7913 but unfortunately I can't afford to replace it at the moment so am desperately trying to keep it going until such time as I can. The dryer has been working on and off for the last three years, and it's latest issue was a very high pitched squeaking noise whenever it ran. I diagnosed this as a damaged jockey wheel, so I ordered a replacement jockey wheel assembly. I installed it today with little issues, however when I put the dryer back together again, it now comes up with a number of flashing lights on the front control panel. These are Clean Filter, Empty Bottle, Clean Heat Exchange, and the Drying and Anti-crease lights on solid green. The lights are arranged like this:- 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 And the current fault code the board is displaying is:- 0 1 1 0 2 2 2 With 1 representing a steady green and 2 representing a flashing red. As mentioned, all I have done is removed the back and top, disconnected the electrical wiring plugs from the heating filament, removed the heating filament housing, removed the drum so I can access and replace the jockey wheels at the bottom, then re-assemble, ensuring all of the wiring is re-connected. Many people seem to have diagnosed this as a thermal cutout or heater issue, but the dryer worked fine yesterday until I replaced the jockey wheels and I can't think what I have done wrong. I have also reset the dryer using the below fault clearing procedure: Dryer is switched off: 1. Turn dial to 6 O'Clock position (6th Sense) 2. Press start(pause) button three times 3. Turn dial one click clockwise (Airing) 4. Press start (pause) button three times. The dryer does reset as all lights briefly go out, but the same fault is reported. Any help that anyone can provide would be most welcome and very much appreciated. Many Thanks

Hey my friend, we have all done repairs and are sure of ourselves putting it back together right! But we are only Human. The plain fact that it ran yesterday if evidence enough. It's more than likely your problem. You did basically tore it limb from limb, LOL. just one more try?

    In the end, it turned out to be the temperature of the ambient air around the dryer. The condensing unit shuts down below 7 degrees C rather than the 5 degrees C quoted in the documentation. As soon as it warmed up, the dryer began working again.

Greetings Gurus. I have Makita charger model DC18RC, battery model is 18v BL1815...manual is of limited help. I'm trying to understand what the indicator lights mean, what the time is for charging,

I agree that the pictographs are not very helpful. You probably have one of the new chargers. I have an old one, which is a little easier to figure out.

From top to bottom

1. The flashing green light with the electric plug indicates that the unit is plugged in and ready to go.
2. The flashing red little fan means that the battery is too warm so it is just cooling it and not charging it at that moment.
3. The solid red empty battery outline means that it is charging but hasn't got very far, less than 80% full.
4. The mostly full battery outline with both solid red and green lights at the same time means it is 80% full or more
5. The full battery outline and solid green with the musical notes means it is full up.
6. The broken battery outline with flashing red and green means you've got a broken battery.
7. The yellow light with the wrench means the charger is "conditioning" the battery, whatever that means.
8. The yellow light with the fan means "cooling abnormality."

Hope this helps

My charger is flashing red when i place the battery in it

Ridgid charger lights read as follows: Solid red; charger has power. Flashing red; charger is evaluating the battery, checking if it's cool enough to charge and if it is in chargeable condition. If the battery is hot, i.e. just came off the tool after extended use, it won't charge the battery until it cools down. Flashing red & green; the battery is defective and the charger will not charge it. Solid red & flashing green; battery is charging. Solid green; battery is full.

Flashing lights on my saeco italia espresso machine

I had the same problem, two green flashing lights with one red (water) all 3 would just keep flashing and not turn solid. No coffee can be made or hot water. I could not pump prime. The problem was the steam wand was blocked with old milk residue. It needs unblocking or you will never pump prime. I could not unscrew the steam I let it sink in a glass full of hot water for a few minutes and then turned the water knob counter clockwise to push out the softened residue. After that, everything was good. When water started flowing out of the steam wand, the red light turned off and the green lights turned solid. The obvious answer to why you can't pump prime is there is a blockage somewhere and best to start with the steam wand. --Mabada
