The reason this is happening is because there is a bad kill switch on the door.In order to fix this problem just unplug the dryer lift up the top by pulling the top to you and lifting it up at the same time.once you get the top of the dryer open the switch that needs to be replaced will be located where the door meets the front of the dryer just pull off the wire on each side unscrew the switch from the outside of the dryer in front of the door and install the new one in reverse order.if you write down your model number you can find this switch on Amazon or many other web sites or go to tribbles to purchase the part.Then again there is always the option to call gene at Mechanicalmobileservices and have him do it for you

The number one reason for your issue would be a faulty stuck door switch. Does the black lever retract out when the door is opened, and can you press it in and hear a click when pushed in or released out? Best to have the door switch checked. Door switch part# 340617.

You have a leak somewhere in your gas system, Either from the gas valve or some other tubing. In this situation unless you understand how it works I would recommend getting a tech out to look at your system. That way you know that it is being done properly.

Sounds like the door lock, before getting a new one check it's not just the connection come adrift. Isolate from mains, open door, remove retaining spring from around door gasket and you can access the door lock (usually held in position by two Torx20 screws.

Why it doesn't spin


almost all washing machines have a special switch to turn off or don't let spin when door is open. If machine 'thinks' that door is open, won't spin. "" Danger, Will Roberson...Danger..."" If you don't know what U are doing, please get help. An open switch looks like door is open.The switch is INSIDE the body of washing machine, ON the door is a plastic piece that pushes the switch lever in. You have to place 'jumpers' across the contacts on switch,shorting switch and turning machine to spins cycle.

Asko 12505 fills with water, doesn't rotate, doesn't spin or drain.


Hello.


If your washer is indeed a WFL2066, than the not spinning is directly relatedto the unit not draining.

These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.

Here is the first step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drainpump/filter to clean it.

To reach the filter and clean it...

**Unplug the washer from the dryer or wall, or turn off the 30amp breakerat the home service panel...safety first**

1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of thewasher.

2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where awet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works aswell.

3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out.Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or yourwasher detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreignobjects/obstructions.

4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight. Beforeclosing up the small access door, run a short rinse spin cycle to check forleaks.

Let me know how you make out, or if you require further assistance.

make sure the switch is sey correctly,it can be set to off or on all the time or set to turn on with open door, so check the switch position first. next thing to check is for a door not closed good then for a bad door switch.

Washing machines door open light is on, but door is shut


Found it for myself - F7=motor fault. New motor brushes fixed it. This error code will come up if the motor fails to turn on demand at any point in a program, be it filling, in a wash cycle, or spinning.

Had the same problem on a whirpool drayer. Get our multimeter and check which heat fuse is broken. Take that one out and throw it in the floor until you have conductivity again. Clean drayer vents and heater. This worked for me, good luck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuFQOuSlzlw
