If there is power to the outlet the machine is plugged into...It appears your timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Avanti w798-ss e3 error


It seems there is a fault on the main controller unit of the washer. It seems to start and then drain off in mid cycle. Now choose a different program and see if there is any change. Also check individually the inlet valve, the water level sensor and also the drain valve. Also check all the connections to the main panel.

Avanti spinning problem


One of the largest problems with this washer has been the lid switch, you must check it out with a ohm meter, if the switch quits you will lose power to the motor. Things can get caught between the tanks as well, this machine is bad for the center bearing tightening up and the spin will quit. This is a new close up pictureof a typical lid switch. You can temporarily join the wires together to test the motor and washer operations.

Avanti w798ss doest start


Close the lid! There's a sensor on the back hinge of the lid. Make sure its working. You should hear a small click when you close the lid.

Avanti W852 Parts??


It's going to be hard finding parts for this machine because I have one as well. You can search the internet or call the company. The last time I had problems with my machine the company told me they stop making parts for this particular brand. Don't give up looking for parts, maybe someone else sells the parts for this washer. Good Luck!

Avanti W797: Tub won't spin or water does not empty.


Had the same problem. The water pump is not working and since it cant drain water it wont spin. A easy fix. There's a magnet located on the water pump thats comes lose. Simply tie it back into place.
