If you can still open the door when it's supposed to be locked it probably means that the interlock on the door catch is faulty.Easier to fix than if the door is locked shut!!...Not a big job but should be done by a qualified tech. See if you can find an independent, self employed tech...Generally cheaper and better than 'Brand Name' servicemen..Good luck..........Nomess

SOURCE: i have a whirlpool WFS1071BD.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is the WFS1071AW version of the manual and the pump cleaning instructions are the same:
http://www.whirlpool.com.au/app.cnt/whr/au_AU/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001
And then enter "WFS1071" Instructions for removing the filter are on page 14 of the user manual.
(Wth pictures)

Pump / Filter cleaning POWER OFF UNIT UNPLUGED:

Basically you open the lower panel by pushing down and pulling toward you at the top. Use something like a cake pan for catching water. Grasp the CIRCULAR filter and rotate it COUNTER CLOCKWISE until the water starts draining. WAIT until all the water possible drains. Then unscrew the filter and pull it out. Clean out any debris. Make sure to reach deep into the filter hole and CAREFULLY clean off the sensor if you can reach it and then reinstall the filter by rotating clockwise. Last steps install the lower panel and PLUG IN POWER.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Press the cancel button twice to cancel the error code. There should be an error code flashing -- for example 'F02'.

Machine won't start code dl F


The machine is not starting because the door lock fails to lock the door as what error code FdL stands for. It flashes after the door locking routine fails to lock the door after 6 attempts. Replacing the door lock/switch assembly is the only viable if no problem is seen with the wire harness connecting the assembly to the central control unit. The link below contains the detailed instructions in replacing the door lock/switch assembly.

We have a Whirlpool 7KG frontloader washing machine (6th sense) model AWM8121. The problem is that the door light is flashing, the cycle has stopped at rinse (rinse light is on) and the machine is not...


We have an awm8121 and there seems to be a fault on the Spin cycle indicators with th 0 RPM and the 800 RPM flashing..

We can't seem to get the frontloader to finish the drain cycle and continue into the next was.

The last load of washing was still saturated when we managed to open the door.

My Whirlpool duet washer lights flash/beep


probably your door then, look at the door itself, at the latch is it broken? should form a complete square hole with four sides. if broken some part is probably inside lock asm. if complete, look at lock and determine if its in the lock position with door open, a arm will be up preventing the latch from going in. replace as necessary. Old duets (red lights) use standard lock asm same as GE and samsung. New duets (green lights) use whirlpool/new maytag unique asm. New locks come in two interchageable models, German (made in china) and Mexican, Mexican model is more troublesome, get german.
If lights flash during a cycle or other time, its giving a code, note the F code displayed
