Re: will not start

Bsolo, sounds like something jammed in your pump stopping the motor. You will have to remove the cabinet to get at the pump. It has 2 clips that hold it to the motor. The best way to tell for sure is to remove the cabinet, jump the lid switch and start the washer. If the motor runs without the pump, then you know for sure it's jammed. I will try to attach a diagram on how to remove the cabinet.6212c10.gif216ffff.jpg

Good Afternoon Leszek - Thank you for your question. Based on the symptoms you are describing it sounds like the unit has a faulty timer or a potential wiring failure. Try reprogramming the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If issue persists, then at this point I strongly suggest reaching out to a professional that can accurately diagnose and repair the washer.

I would call a local appliance store that sells and does repairs. Explain what's happening. They will probably be able to tell you if it needs service, and what type of problem it has.

Drum will not spin

I am the new owner of a used Asko Cylinda 10504.
The last owner briefly demonstrated the washer starting a wash cycle and entering the agitation cycle of the wash before stopping and pumping the water out and spinning in a final end cycle. I bought it. I had the machine installed turned it on and cannot get it to go through the wash cycle. After starting at #1 it goes through a perpetual spin cycle of sorts--water and soap soaking the drum and laundry but not enough water to fill up half way or less. It stops at number 4 on the program knob sits on a red dot (next to the #4) and does nothing. I then manually move it to the next cycle and it repeats the spin cycle again until I have advanced the program to the end. No wash cycle no rinse cycle. Nothing. When it advances to the red dot I wait for at least 5 minutes before manually advancing the knob. The instructions say that I should get the water pumped out by turning the program knob to #7 or #9 but in both cases it just spins and does no empty or finish in the end spin cycle of several (9?) minutes. Nothing but banging and spinning. The water seems to get into the drum as well as the detergent but nothing else is happening.
No mater where I start the program it spins and sloshes soapy water, pumping almost nothing out.
Any suggestions short of putting it on the curb or paying a kings ransom to fly a tech out to look at it?

It seems that it is repeating the same brief cycle over and over. During the move to my house the electronics re set(??!?!?) and now need to be set to the normal mode after being re connected?
Can you help?

Front load kenmore washer model 417 will not enter any wash cycle. It will do the rinse and spin cycle but not a wash

will it fill with water? if not listen by the water hose when you press start to wash and see if you hear a faint buzz/humming sound. If so you need to replace the water inlet valve. cheers
