My washer WFW70HE was started with the water shut off, now the door lock flashes, it sounds like the pump is running and none of the buttons including power will work. I have unplugged and re plugged?

Try resetting by pushing "Wash Temp", "Spin" and "Soil" buttons 3 times. Also be aware that your model may automatically run the drain pump for approximately 10 minutes when it is first plugged in. Let me know if you have success with that.

GE Washer, Model GBVH5140HWW. Door seal failed and water in washing machine leaked into the base of the washing machine. Removed the front panel, replaced the door seal, dried up the water in the machine...


The seal is likely not installed correctly. What is happening is the latch for the lock is trying to hook and it is being blocked so it doesn't actually lock. After so many tries the machine goes into an abort mode where it washes out all the water and stands by for it to be fixed. If you put some pressure on the door (closing it) while it is trying to lock, it likely will lock and then run. It is basically an adjustment issue. It is also possible that something with the lock mechanism is broken or out of adjustment causing the leaking to begin with and that is actually the area that needs attention rather than replacing the door seal. Door seals rarely fail unless they are physically damaged somehow.

Bosch classixx 1200 express spin light flashing water wont drain pump is running water draining very slow i checked for blockage none found help... thanks


Sounds like the blockage is closer to the drum, Tilt the machine as far back as you can to access underneath. Make sure to have a basin and remove the pipe going from the drain pump to the tub and see if anything is obstructing the pipe or stuck in the tub, is usually a sock. Hope this helps.

The door will not go to lock,I push the start button it will run for 2seconds,then it will stop and flashes pause,their is a small piece that broke off the bottom of the lock,but the door seems to shut...


these elctronic controls can become problems to troubleshoot sometimes. however the normal operation on this model when you power up is it will drainn first or try to drain any water left in bottom to make sure you have fresh water. then the door will lock prior to it filling with water... i would first try to look at drain pump and hose to drain and make sure no obstruction and that drain pumpp is working properly... if all looks good and your sure drain pump is ok then look at the door lock mechanism as it could have failed... repost with anymore questions ,but willing to bet the drain pump is the culprit...

Push start different sound water may start may not start pause


I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!

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 clicks and wont open and washer runs but wont do anything


Potential reasons for it: - Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure - In this case it should be replaced. - Door Lock unit is broken or removed from the door. - Look for disconnected wires to the door Lock/Switch unit. - Door Lock/Switch unit Failure You should remove machine's top cover and then you will have an access to the door lock unit. Be aware you should discconect machine's power cable first !! Good luck!
