SOURCE: washing machine wont start.... it

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

You have to be more specific about what Red Alarm is flashing, now days cars have a dozen Red Alarms and Amber Alarms all located in the cluster, what is the icon or symbol on the Red Alarm that is flashing ?

Whirlpool washer won't start. Not a water problem. Door lock lift on or at times flashing. Think it's something to do with the door or panel.


At the right end of your panel you will find the 'end of cycle' symbol, to unlock keep this depressed for 3 seconds, this is the child lock feature. You do it again, and the machine locks.

My bosch classixx6 1200 express keeps flashing the key/lock symbol and bleeps so I cant start a programme


The door is not locked properly or the door lock switch is not functioning. In the second case the door lock functioning can be checked by bypassing the door switch (for testing only). After bypassing the switch the program can start. If it succeeds replace the door lock switch.

Hotoint WMA34 door light keeps flashing and machine wont start


The light flashing usually indicates that the door is not closed securely. this can be caused by a weak or broken door handle spring.
If you are satisfied that the handle is o/k, then the other possibility is that the control module has a blown track, this can be accessed by removing the top cover.
Hope this nhelps.

Keeps flashing SE


I recently had this happen but with no error message on my model, the rinse symbol just kept flashing and nothing was happening. I tried running a spin cycle or rinse and spin. The rinse & spin started but stopped when it got to spin. I finally determined that the water was not draining out. I ended up emptying a bucket and a half of water out of the emergency valve near the floor (which spills water everywhere) and found a lint ball that was plugging it. After this I tried running just a spin cycle and it worked.

Security lights flashing after battery cable removal-no start


Anytime you disconnect and reconnect your battery, the factory alarm will arm upon reconnection and the truck will not start. You have to close your doors, then manually lock and unlock the door with your key. This should turn off the security system and you should be able to start the truck.
