Check the water solenoid valve, it may have failed. A quick test is to use hot wash rather than cold wash. If the hot water works, then your cold water valve has failed.

My whirlpool Model wtw4850xq is not working. The spin light keeps flashing and it won't do anything when I push start other than lock the lid.


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

My Frigidaire affinity washer front-end loader will not start. All hoses are fine, electrical is working fine, all doors are closed. I push start button and PAU flashes, That normal click or locking...


You may need to check the drain pump for anything that could obstruct the flow of water,or stop the impellar wheel from turning.if there is standing water in the unit you can use a wet dry shop vac to drain the water out by attatching it to the end of the drain hose.if you remove any of the hoses from the drain pump ther will still be some water that comes out.

Make sure to also check the boot that is coming from the bottom of the tub and make sure that the coin trap is not clogged.

The front panel has to be removed in order to get to the drain pump.I hope this helps good luck will be looking for any furher questions.

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.

'door locked button flashing'


The door lock flashing all time has nothing to do with the weather, or pipes freezing up, it is a fault with the washer.
It is unlikely to be a faulty door lock, but could be a broken door catch spring or door catch problem, make sure you can feel the door latch in securely.
the other probable cause a fault on the main pcb where you programme the washer.
Another prob that can occur is a fault on the mptor caused by the brushes shorting on the motor armature, this in turn can blow a track of the pcb, and giving you the flashing light prob.
I would start by checking the motor first, if you are satisfied that the door is closing o/k.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

No flow


Hello hedrickcari
Welcome,

You said, you are getting a no flow error code. This washer was installed today.If I have an air pocket, how do you get it out so the washer senses the water flow?

First I would unplug the washer for 5 minutes and see if it resets and clears the errors!



Make sure the door is tightly closed. (Unlike top-loaders, front-loading washing machines must be closed in order for water to begin filling. Makes a lot of sense when you think about it.)

Then make sure the machine is plugged in to a live (or working) electrical outlet. It's a good idea to check the appropriate circuit breaker and reset it if needed or check the fuse if you have a fuse box.

Next, turn the control dial to the proper cycle and push the START/STOP button firmly. Then turn both faucets (hot and cold) on all the way. Take a look at the inlet hoses (which go from your pipes to your washer) and straighten them out if necessary.

Turn off the faucets and then disconnect the hoses. Clean the hose filter screens to remove any blockage that could be plugging up the water line.

Then replace the filter screens, reconnect the hoses, turn the faucets back on, open and close the door, and push the START/STOP button firmly one more time.

You should be rewarded with the sound of water beginning to fill up your Maytag® Neptune® washer. If you aren't, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-688-9900.

Water in door takes over a minute to BEGIN flowing.


I had the same problem.... Until just one day the water quit working... Always thought it was hard water build up blocking the waterline.... Come to find out several years later all it was, was the dual water valve that had gone bad... I guess they have a censor in them that will either lock open or lock shut.... Mine was locked shut... When I tried to fix the valve myself, by opening it up and blowing air threw it, I locked it open and when I conected it back up to the fridge water was coming out of the door uncontrolably. So I ordered a new water valve.. Replace it myself... Works great now.... Hope this helps...
