Delay Start not working

My washer delay start seems to have its wires crossed!! When pressing the button before starting a load, the time for the cycle changes by about 10 or 12 minutes, depending on the cycle. I wouldnt spend the $$$ on going for a new circuit board just to fix this problem but am wondering if anyone has any other ideas what I can check or try.

Your delay switch should be separate to your main board it will be faulty the delay switch and should be cheaper than replacing your washer there is nothing you can do if this part is faulty sorry for the bad news m8 it is only a small circuit switch to replace

A red padlock symbol is showing on the panel of my WCVH6800 front load washer. I can't change any of the wash settings. How do I fix this?

Here's what the Padlock represents:

Lock Function

You can lock the controls to prevent any selections from being made. Or you can lock the controls after you have started a cycle. children cannot accidentally start the washer by touching pads with this option selected.

To lock the washer, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds (on some models use SIGNAL button). To unlock the washer controls, press and hold the DELAY START button for 3 seconds. The control lock icon on the display will light up when it is on.

NOTE: The POWER button can still be used when the machine is locked.

Dishwasher ran all night still not finished. Error code 4H displaying.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The 4H is indicating your dishwasher is in the delayed wash start mode. Here is some information from Sears about what to do:

  • The number letter combination indicates that the dishwasher is in a "Delay Start" mode, as well as how many hours were set for the delay start.
  • The dishwasher will not start the wash until it reaches the delayed hour that it was set for. Example: 1H = 1 hour delay start, 2H = 2 hour delay start, etc.
    • To start the dishwasher immediately and not wait for the Delay Start time, cancel the "Delay Start" option, by pressing the Cancel button. Then program the cycle and options and press Start.
    • To start the dishwasher after the Delay time, select the cycle and options desired. Select the "Delay Start" option and on some dishwashers it requires, pressing the Start button.
    • Some dishwashers will display a countdown of the delay time on the display.
Note: Refer to the Owner's Manual or Use & Care Guide for specific instructions on using the "Delay Start" feature.

If you need more assistance we will need your exact model number in any of your future responses.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The delay start light on my washer is on and I do not want to delay start. I have pushed the cancel button twice like instructions say and once I hit start, the delay start light is on and machine is...

First I made sure the detergent dispenser door was closed. That did not work. Then i made sure that the dispenser was clean, by running water thru it. That did not work,. Then I turned the dial to hand wash and pushed the start button. That worked. Delay light did not turn on. Then i turned the setting to the proper wash cycle and pushed the start button. Clothes are being washed now.

How to cancel delay start

Press the Delay Start button several times until the displayed delay start time is cleared or reads "00". Unplug the machine or flip the circuit breaker to the OFF position for at least half an hour or so to forcibly reset the control if pressing the Delay Start button does not alter or clear the displayed delay start time.

Frigidaire F/L Washer - Delay Start will not reset?

I had this EXACT problem this morning and ended up calling the Sears Home Central Team out (I have an extended maintenance agreement). This is an error code that CAN BE RESET by the end user (you and me!) and doesn't need a repairmain. Here's what you do:

The four lights above the START button will begin to flash.
Continuing holding the START and CANCEL button and "spin" your wash selector knob to "SPIN".
Release the START and CANCEL buttons and Press the START button.
This will RESET the error codes within the system and allow you to "cancel out" of the DELAY START.

IF the error codes are "bad ones", then the system will stay locked and you'll need to call a repairman; however, this "fix" should work for MOST of the routine system error codes.

Worked on mine and we're a happy washing family once again!!
