Re: washing machine prob

You need to replace the door interlock. Try giving the handle a firm push and see if the machine will start.

I have a whirlpool sixth sense washing machine. the door open light constantly flashing although the door is well shut. No programmes work

We had the same issue: the cycle would start then stop, with the door open light coming on. It turned out to be a faulty contact in the door. Took a technician 15 minutes to fix.

My whirpool locked light keeps flashing and wont wash


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.

I select a programme and then press the start button, the door locks but the start light flashes, and nothing happens

When the program is pressed to start then the inlet valve must open and allow the water to come to the drum. if this is not happening then check the voltage to the inlet valve, if there is no voltage then the program controller is not outputting and so defective.
If not the inlet filter/valve is clogged and will need a back flush .

Suspect low water flow rate ., check flow rate from main sink tap , when turned on full this should be pretty fierce. Put machine on normal cool wash , when it is taking in cold water through the soap drawer , pull out the drawer a little , the water flow rate should be allmost the same as the tap , if not investigate , fill pipes at rear etc..

Washing machine door locked indesit WD12X

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Zanussi ZWF1437W washing machine - wont start

The error message "Err" usually indicates that the wash program and option are not compatible. 40 degrees and 900 rpm Spin should be o.k.. I would try another wash program with no special options and see if the problem goes away.
