The machine is flashing to warn you that there is a problem and it is probably something stuck in the pump filter. remove the panel in the front and remove the black round plastic filter. Clean out the stuff in there and everything should work.

hope this helps.

    Dlivingitup.. only use the quick wash for a couple of t shirts for example... don't use it for a full load because it just wont get a lot of clothes clean in a short time and use a lot less detergent. hope this helps

Why does my 5 year old machine keep stopping mid-cycle?


Check the door sensor and clean it. Or one or more(i believe there are three) of your tub sensors may be bad.

Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?


Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

Whirlpool 6th sense wont start cycle


I have the same problem. Look at the previous post, it seems to be the motor brush worn out. I've opened up the machine and checked. The carbon brush remains very little. I am trying to find out a replacement brush

Opening the door after a wash


Turn program selector to "off". Turn selector to Drain or Spin. Press the start / pause. Wait until program ends. Open door.
OR

Press "start / pause" until the start / pause light flashes.

First, unplug the machine and turn off the water supply. On the lower right of the front panel is a 6" / 15mm cover. 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.

F-28 flashing. Door will not open


While the machine is on press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, then wait for 2 minutes to try the door. Try this again if it does not open, this is the child lock program - to lock and unlock; it is the same procedure.

Check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. You can also plug off for half an hour to reset.

Control lock light will not go off.


Do you have any error codes?

Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

Paused. now stuck. cannot open, turn off, etc.


Unpluggin the machine is pretty much the only way to reset it.Leave it unplugged for a couple hours if that doesnt work its most like a control board issue
