If electronic control, try pulling the power plug for a little while, then retrying. If older clock driven control, try turning the knob manually to see if anything happens. If it does, the clock motor on the timer may be stuck. Probably have to replace entire timer unit to fix.

Whirlpool W10240509A did not spin out all water. when i try to restart iti

mine just started doing this on the wash cycle then we have to turn it to drain and spin. Last night it filled with water and refused to do anything else so it said it was done, open the lid and still full of soap and water. Turn it to drain and press the start button and it does nothing, no lights come on. We bought it in 2012, before the washer we had was purchased in 2000, and we are still using the dryer from 2000.

LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
Is water supply connected and turned on?
Are hose screens plugged?
Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.

Kenmore washer wont do anything but fill with water

Possible that the program controller unit is a suspect. you need to check the voltage to confirm the case. remove the inlet valve and check. check the warter level sensor as unless it triggers the motor will not start.

Dish washer starts ok then check water light comes on. if you reset the m/c it then starts ok but then the check water light comes on again.If you lightly shake machine from side to side the water starts...

This could be a slight water leak that causes the "anti-flood" system to kick in. This device is a polystireen float and a micro switch at the bottom of the washer. Once a small bit of water has leaked it causes the float to rise and activates the anti flood device that just puts the washer in pump out mode and nothing els. You could try tilting tha washer to get rid of the water at the base or dry it if you have the washer open (front or back). The cause is normaly a slight leak on a clamp or a very small hole in a pipe or can also be a rust speck inside the washer that causes the leak. You need to check the float to see if water leak is the problem.

Sounds like a programmer fault , is it stuck , is it a geared one , ie can you turn it by hand to select next cycle. if so give it a gentle turn .. could be the pump clogged .

    The door is locked, no light on, washer won't run

    Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet?
    Plug power cord into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
    Are you using an extension cord?
    Do not use an extension cord.
    Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
    Check to see if a household circuit breaker or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet has tripped. If so, reset the circuit breaker or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. If the washer is on a fuse box, check to see if a fuse has blown and replace it, if necessary. If the problem continues to occur, call an electrician.
    Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
    Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.
    NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer and turned on. The washer will not operate properly with only one incoming source of water.
    Is the water inlet hose kinked?

    Straighten the water inlet hoses.
    Are the water inlet valve screens on the washer clogged?

    Turn off the water and remove the inlet hoses from the washer. Remove any accumulated film or particles. Reinstall hoses, turn on water and check for leaks.
    Is the washer in a normal pause in the cycle?
    The washer pauses for about 2 minutes during certain cycles. Allow the cycle to continue. Some cycles feature periods of tumbling and soaking.
    Is the washer door firmly shut?
    The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look closed, but may not be latched. Open the door and close firmly.
    Are the shipping bolts removed?
    All four shipping bolts must be removed from the rear of the washer before you operate the washer. Each unit is shipped from the factory with four bolts, which are designed to protect the washer during shipping. Failure to remove all of the shipping bolts, and the four plastic spacers that are with them, can result in noise, vibration, error codes and possible machine damage.
    Has a cycle been selected, but Start has not been selected and held for 1 second?
    Press and hold Start for 1 second.
    Is the Control Locked status light on?
    Press and hold the End of Cycle Signal button for three seconds. This will turn off the Control Lock feature.
    Is the Delay Wash status light on?
    Your washer will start after the selected hours of delay are completed.
    Was the door left closed after the last cycle?
    The washer door must be opened and closed again to start a new cycle. If the door is not opened between cycles, the washer may not start.
