Question about Whirlpool AWM6100 Front Load Washer
When you switch on, the 1200 spin light comes on and stays on for about 10 seconds. Then it goes out and teh 800, 100 and 0 spin lights (but not teh 400) start flashing. When I press teh pause button to start the machine, nothing happens.
I have checked the filter at bottom right, checked the door is properly closed and that teh water is switched on. It was woking fine 3 days ago. I am in SW France but I have used it twice since the storms and power cuts. Onlyother clue is that it is in quite a damp cellar.
Is this something I can fix or do I need to call out a repair man?

I am having trouble starting the washer . I set the cycle on casual and press the start button and the washer sensor showed to " Done" instead of starting. I only bought it three months ago.

I had the same problem about a year ago, I replaced the door switch but didn't fix it, I found the brushes in the motor has worn out - Replaced the brushes and fixed the problem.

select pause/cancel twice if it still does not unlock. It is not unlocking because of water still in the system, run the drain spin cycle manually if that does not work you will have to clean out the lint trap and the water left inside will drain on your floor. To clean the lint trap. there is a panel at the bottom front of the washer. along the bottom of the washer there are three torx type screws to remove the panel these will be above the drawer unit if you purcased the stand. remove the panel by lifting from the bottom. then in the center you will see a plastic cap. twist the cap to remove. this is your lint filter. it pulls out and has a cup shaped piece attached to it pay attention to how it comes out im not sure if you can put it in wrong. clean the area out. there may be some water to spill out depending on how much is clogged in your system. replace the cap once you have cleaned it out this should help with your problems.
