It appears your timer/main controller/CCU 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.

Why doesn't it go past the "pre-rinse" stage?


I would say that there's a very high probability that the heater in the machine has failed. It does the cold pre-rinse but when it gos to the next stage and tries to engage the water heater it detects an open circuit and faults out. You will find replacement heaters on eBay and probably videos on how to replace on YouTube

Machine powers up,,,than the whole machines powers down


Let's see if we can get it into diagnostic mode and check for any fault codes. Make sure the dryer is in standby mode, plugged in with all the indicators off. Select any button except the PAUSE/CANCEL button. PRESS/HOLD 3 SECONDS > RELEASE FOR 3 SECONDS > PRESS/HOLD 3 SECONDS > RELEASE FOR 3 SECONDS > PRESS/HOLD 3 SECONDS. If test mode was entered successfully all indicators will illuminate for 5 seconds with 88 showing in the two digit display. If there are no saved or active fault codes all indicators will momentarily turn off then stay on with 88 in the display. If there are any fault codes, the most recent one will alternately show F- and "XX " where XX is the fault code. and all the cycle indicators will flash. If you can't enter the test mode try a different button. Lets start there.

Maytag Neptune front load washer door is locked with clothes in the machine. How do I get it to unlock?


there is an emergency release in this, you will need to open the detergent dispenser on the top of the washer, (if you have this type) not sure without a model #. and you will be looking towards the front of the dispenser for a florescent plastic wire, this when pulled releases the door lock so you can open it, sometimes this is hard to find and you may need to remove the cover of the dispenser, ( four screws in the dispenser) and look towards the front.

If i use combination tablets in dishwasher do i need salt & rinse aid, thank you.


Hi,

The combination tablets are very convenient and do work well but you will still need to use salt and rinse aid for the best results. The reason for this is that every dishwasher has a specific time or times that it needs that chemical (rinse aid or salt) to be released. The tablets will release it but maybe not at the best times.

Getting the F21 flashing on my Whirlpool Duet Washing maching


To know what the f21 means, You need to see the fault code list; this is on a tech sheet that is usually taped to the back of the machine, orit is in the contol compartment that you will have to open to access. Note: the newer whirpool units have end caps that must be removed by light prying in order to access the screw on each side that releases the component compartment . Goodluck, Macgivor

Indesit washer dryer


check heater element first, thats a common fault on these machines, loose connection or open circuit, after that check the pump for same open circuit

the rotating of the timer knob indicates a fault, maybe even a setting fault, to try and reset set to off, turn off and back on again, till light flashes, then turn off again and start again

if you do not know how to test for open circuit then the job is not for you, sorry
