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 or 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$$$$

I had a problem with my f8086ldpwashing machine...when i turned on the machine the clothes are being washed but it is not taking the detergent powder from the case that is provided..that is why the washing...

there are little holes in the dispenser that are clogged pull the dispenser drawer out & the roof of dispenser is where the holes are blocked unblock the holes with a pin and you should be right. this only usually happens when you are using to much powder. you only need a quarter of a scoop these days the powder is so strong everyone is wrecking there machines because there using to much powder.

My intuitive washing machine will not go into a spin cycle?

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.

Is powder or liqued detergent better for front

They are trying to make money off you!!!!!!! LIQUID!!!! Dont ever!!! use powder soap in your front loader. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and then gets into the bearings of the washer and eats them away! This caused about a 450 dollar repair for your repairman. Never use powder soap.

Soap powder remains in the soap compartment

Depending on which compartment the powder is remaining in, it could be low water pressure causing the problem.
If it is taking some down, but not all the powder, then try putting the powder towards the front of the compartment.
If all else fails then I suggest you get one of these dispenser balls that you put straight in the drum with the washing.
Plz rate this solution.

Musty smell in washing machine - no obvious water/mold, etc.

1. Run an empty load wih nothng but bleach in the dispenser on the sanitary cycle. (Do this once a month)
2. Switch to powder HE detergent. The liquids cause their own smell.
3. Leave the door open when the washer is not in use.
4. Guaranteed!

Switch to powder HE Detergent.

Is the powder in a dispenser? If so, the function is a problem. First, try the latch: does it move freely? If not, clean/replace that item.

There may also be a corroded connection or the solenoid actuator is bad. Inspect. Disconnect wires and test for continuity. When running a cycle, see if voltage appears when powder should be dispensed. If yes, solenoid is the problem. If no, wiring or timer.

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.
