There are 2 most likely problems with your washer:

  1. Pump is clogged; a clogged pump/drain tube will back up and not allow the machine to rinse and/or spin out...Remove the access panel on the bottom of the machine and check the drain hose (have a bucket ready for water in the machine) for obstructions. What happens is if items are left in pockets of your clothing, they tend to end up in the drain hose or the pump. If drain hose is clear, remove the hose and inspect the pump. You should be able to get a pair of needlenose pliers or a screwdriver in the pump to pull out any debris. Once the pump and drain hose are clear, re-assemble and start the machine. It should rinse and spin out
  2. Bad timer; Timers are a common cause of washing machines stopping in mid-cycle. The timer is accessible after removing the top panel. It's not difficult to replace
Either of these solutions should fix your front loader. Please feel free to post back any questions you may have.

My bosch nexxt 100 series washer will not start. The spin, wash and finish indicator lights flash simultaneously when try to start.


Make sure dial is switched to 'off'. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. If if doesn't work, do it again.

To get the clothes out if you are having trouble, open door manually. Near the bottom of this cover is a small hole. Insert a piece of wire into this hole, and push in gently. While pushing, turn the cover clockwise, it will came off. The door release is a narrow white plastic strip hanging down on the right; Pull down on this strip while pushing in on the door, the door lock will release.

Click helped if helped.

Finished, wash and spin lights flashing. Door


I just had this problem! To get the clothes out, open door manually (follow answers on other threads here about opening toe panel and gently pulling down on door release). But as it turned out, I didn't need to remove the clothes, and now my washer is working again.

A local repairman gave me this advice over the phone. Make sure dial is switched to off. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. The second time I tried this, my washer worked afterwards. I've done several loads today with no problem.

HE2 front loadable washer doesn't move fm wash to rinse to drain


Sounds like the door lock. It will not advance to spin if it thinks the door is open. There is a instruction sheet inside the unit behind the lower panel. That will give the error codes for the flashing lights.

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.

Indesit wia111 stuck on spin cycle


OK - Try this:-

1. Position the dial on number 0 (off) and then unplug from the wall.
2. After at least 24 hours plug back in - hopefully the thing should have reset.
3. This is really important. Select a wool wash program (No 9) and allow it to complete the entire wash until the door lock light starts flashing to say it's finished.
4. Turn the dial back round to position 0 and all LEDs should go out.

That's it - The control board is reset and all should be well

In order to prevent re-occurance, try to avoid canceling programs mid-cycle. It's also a good idea to switch the dial to number 0 and switch the machine off at the wall when not in use if at all possible.

Please let me know if this works for you :)
