To Manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened.

My mastermind 708 dosen't spin after wash cycle.It spins fine in the wash cycle but dosen't drain water or spin in the spin cycle.Pease help


Your empty pump filter is blocked with debris. If it can't evacuate all the water then it wont allow the spin cycle to start. Locate the filter (probably behind a little door at the botton of the front of the machine). Remove, clean and remove the debris, re-fit and all will be well

I have a Westinghouse Mastermind 711 Front Loader Washing Machine which is flashing OE and the clothes inside are very wet. Can you please let me know what this flashing OE means....Many Thanks, ELena


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

OE is a drain error and is displayed when the washer is unable to drain water. Please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs to clean the error. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My westinghouse mastermind 708 is flashing SE or 5E? what does this mean please?


most home appliances have many ELECTRONIC components......these components are very sensitive to electrical irregularities that enter your home electrical system......these irregularities can cause some components to freeze up.......pull the plug and leave your westinghouse 708 unplugged for several minutes.......plug it in again and it will reset all of these control components........hope that helps!

I have a Westinghouse mastermind 708 washing machine and it does not spin after wash cycl. i think it might be the pump to pump water out, it still makes a humming noise


I would check the internal coin trap/drain to make sure it is not blocked with socks or 3-in1 dryer sheets. If the water does not drain it backs up and causes error messages and spin problems. These are normally not listed in the manual so you have to take off a panel to find it. Could be at the bottom or in the back. Unscrew and check the trap and remove any blockage. Prepare for a mess if you can't fit a bucket under the trap!
