Wont start (door lock light not on) & stops 10 min into cycle

The washer doesn't want to start (or if it starts, it stops about 10 minutes into the cycle) due to the door lock not working correctly. The door is completely shut, yet the door lock light doesn't turn on, so the cyle won't start. I have a washer full of soaking wet clothes and don't know what to do! HELP!!

Sounds like the door micro switch is out. You can check this by opening the door & pressing in switch lever with your finger should feel a clicking almost like popping a knuckle on your finger no clicking switch is bad. If switch is bad you will need to have it replaced. You could bypass switch but with all electrical parts it could be dangerous if you do not know what your doing. Switch $2.00 to $13.00 Labor is where they get you.

Washer won't start, control lock lite on?


Try unplugging the washer for 30 minutes. When you plug it back in, the power board should reset and allow you to start a new wash cycle.

My whirpool locked light keeps flashing and wont wash


Hi


The light is flashing due to the door lock error. The door lock is activated as the machine experienced an error or was stopped in middle of a cycle. Or the door was being pulled while the machine was running a cycle. Try unplugging your washer and restart the washer to check if you are still getting the same blinking light. If error is still not resolved then start the rinse/spin cycle & stop the cycle, now press and hold the cancel button for 5-10 seconds. However, if you are still not able to get the door open then you'll need to open the door manually by disassembling the washer.
Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

When washer starts it usually makes a clicking noise know it is humming and nothing happens the door is locked and wont open


your main belt is broken or loose i would suspect the latter,the reason the door will not open is the machine has started a wash cycle and because the belt is not able to finish the cycle the door wont open so the progam is not finished,switch the machine of at the mains and the door will open after 10 mins.But the problem remains the belt.please rate this answer thanks.adrian,,,,,,,,,

Door Light won't go out


Hi, Does the door lock? Usually when you close the door it locks and allows the water to fill, then it starts the wash cycle. If when you close the door it does not fill, then it could be the door interlock which is at fault. Tom.
