Question about Tricity Bendix AW1000W Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Door not locking, not spinning , and not taking washing powder.

Machine is not going through the cycle,especially the spinning. Powder Dispenser is also not working correctly, and the Door is not locking.

I have tried cleaning out from the area at the bottom front right of the Machine , and unblocked fluff and threads. This did seem to work , however now after 2-3 weeks this has again occured.
If any anyone could give a possible solution , it would be appreciated. Other way's it could be goosed.

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.

Glasses and dishes are coming out with white residue and clumps on them after full normal wash and dry cycle


Hello.. Firstly check thet the spray arms are clean. make sure there arent any jets blockd. Make sure the spray arms turn freely. Before closing the door on a cycle spin the arms to ensure no item is stopping the turning action.
make sure all of the water pumps out of the machine. There should be only a small amount of water under the filter after use. Any blockages should be cleared. Check where the drain connects under the sink for a partial blockage down the spiggot.

So if all this is Ok then ensure there is rinse aid in the dispenser. do not use tablets onlyrinse aid in the dispenser provided. Use a small amount of powder in the dispenser. Too much powder can over saturate the solution doing the wash and leave too much cloudy residue.

I assume the water being used is not too hard. It can look clear in a glass but be too hard. Especially artesian water.

You might try an acid descaler to return the machine to an internally clean condiditn. By the way always use a hort cycle. Economy cycles dont do yhe jop over a long period. You need to have a hot 70 degree cycle regularly.
Good luck

It is possible you have been using 'Green' type washing powder. ie no /low phosphate. You need to flush out the system with a phosphate based powder at least twice a year, especially in Brisbane, Queensland

Leak from lower door section and from powder door thing.


This could be a partially or completely seized/failed pump.
Before a machine goes in to a spin cycle, it runs the pump to empty all the water out. It used to be quite common that the machine does not check all the water has gone before spinning, it just runs the pump for a set time which if the pump is okay, is long enough to empty it.
If a spin is then started with quite a lot of water left in the drum, it gets thrown everywhere including back out of the powder/conditioner draw. Also the sheer strain of spinning a large amount of water can force water through an otherwise okay door seal.
Unless you are comfortable working on the machine yourself, call an engineer.

My whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is apparently not opening during cleaning. I find dirty dishes and clumps of soap in the hopper. Whirlpool quiet partner II


I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

Dishwasher problem


Symptoms:
Dispenser lid is open. Caked powder at (what would be during normal operation) bottom edge of soap dispenser or caked powder fallen onto dishes or dishwasher bottom. There may be loose powder in rest of dispenser or spilled down inside door or onto dishes underneath dispenser.

Solution:

Keep the area around the soap dispenser lid clear when loading the top tray.

Explanation:
The soap dispenser needs to swing open during the wash cycle. In many dishwashers the top tray has an indentation as wide as the lid of the dispenser. This allows the top tray to be as large deep as possible while still allowing space for the dispenser lid to open. People often pack their dishwasher with things overhanging this gap.

During the wash cycle the catch will release but the overhanging cutlery or crockery prevents the lid from opening all but a few degrees. Some water will splash in but not enough to wash out the soap powder. The soap powder at the bottom of the dispenser will then cake.

When the front door is opened the spring loaded lid, which is partly open, will of course swing fully open and you'll be convinced that the lid opened normally during operation. If this is the problem then if you're very careful and open the door very slowly you can actually hear the lid flip open. Also, depending on when the lid opens, how far it opened during operation and how fast you open the door you may find soap powder spilled down to cover the dishes at the front or down the inside of the door. This happens when you first open the door and obviously there couldn't be loose powder there if the powder had emerged while there was water washing around. Seeing the lid open as you open the door is a lot harder but can be done on some machines.

If you are you using a liquid soap or packets that will be the main problem.If your unit fills with water circulates the water and drains the water,and also heaters are working then you probally need to change to cascade powder soap.The film on the dishes is soap.The unit has so much build up in it that when it gets to the rinse cycle it is rinsing dishes with soapy water.You need to get 2 medium bowls fill both 2/3 up with white vinager,place one in upper rack and one in lower rack and run unit on longest cycle letting the vinager splash out during wash.do this with no soap and no dishes.Having soft water will allow you to use less soap.

Before taking anything to bits, check you aren't just loading the machine in such a way that something (for us, it's usually a frying pan) is stopping the soap dispenser from springing open all the way. A.

Why dont my machine take the soap powder


Assuming that the bit the water is going into is the prewash dispenser (rather than a bleach or conditioner dispenser), why not just put the powder into there? Some of these machines can be a bit illogical about where the main wash powder is meant to go - sometimes even varies depending on which cycle you're running. If you can find a place that will take the powder at the right time, your problem is solved. If the instructions say different, it might even be them that's wrong. Wouldn't be the first time. A.
