Question about Washing Machines
Hi, Fern Derham from NZ here. I have a 5.5kg WFL2400 Maxx Eurowasher frontloader. There is a problem during the fill, rinse and spin cycles. I thought there may have been a pump blockage so I went through all of the trouble-shooting suggestions and cleaning care suggestions in the manual (which have worked in the past) but the problem still exists. When the machine is filling, it pumps in some water and stops, pumps and stops, etc. When rinsing, draining or spinning, it pumps out some water and stops, etc. It also is not completing a spin cycle. I have tried each cycle with an empty machine as well as with items. I am so desperate as we have no money and an 8 mth old with terrible reflux and I use cloth nappies so this machine goes constantly. :)
It appears your timer/main controller 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
