Model NFW7200TW Washer wont fill with water


Are you sure you have both hot and cold water connected? Try turning the water valve on, if you don't have hot water make sure you choose cold cycle. That's the first place I'd start.

NO ON OFF SWITCH


Hello Heather, I know It is weird they don't have a on and off switch, but when the cycle is done it turns off. Turn it on by starting the cycle. You can stop the cycle by unlatching the latch when it is running. So like if you need it quiet, just open up the dishwasher door a little bit, it will stop. Close the door and it will finish washing.

Beko 5100 w-5100 s door jammed


Try further spin/drain cycle then try door again. If no go, sounds like door lock switch may have jammed. Have to have lid off and see if you can unlatch the door manually.

I have a 3-year old WFL 2090 Axxis Washing Machine. The door will latch initially, but unlatches during wash cycles and blinking lights come on. It was working fine until the machine was moved. ...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is likely to be a problem with either the lid/door solenoid/lock or the 'lid/door closed' sensor becoming apparent with the extra movement of washing requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

We are using self clean feature. continuous beep about 20 minutes into cleaning screen shows F# locked door and beeps nonstop. what can we do to stop beeping but still proced with self cleaning?


F3 is a bad oven temp sensor. The sensor fail F3 code will appear if during self clean that it senses temps above 915F, or there is an open / short in the temp sensor. The only thing you can do is replace the sensor. Just getting the oven door open can be a real pain as you have unlatch the oven door lock to get to the screws that are in the top lip above the oven door so that you can change the sensor. Depending on model you may have to reach through a burner to manually unlatch the oven door lock or remove the side panel of the oven to manually unlatch the door lock. On most units It will not continue to self clean with an F3 code detected. Once an F3 code is detected the ERC shuts off power to the bake and broil elements so that it does not catch fire from a run away temperature condition.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The lock will not release after cleaning


This is GE's trouble shooting advise:

Range - Oven Door Won't Unlock After Self Clean

The Oven Door has been Locked Accidentally:

  • If no food or utensils are in oven, put it into a short self-clean cycle (1-2 hours).


  • If there is food in the oven, let the oven cool to room temperature and try to unlatch the door.


  • With electronic ranges there is a small chance that turning the circuit breaker off for a few minutes and turning it back on can release the door. latch to the "off"


  • Note: Do not force the latch at anytime!

Door Will Not Unlock After Cleaning:

On models with mechanical latches:
  • Once the oven is cool after a self-clean cycle (approximately 30-90 minutes), slide the latch over to the left.(Some older models have a latch release button that must be pushed in while sliding the latch over.)
Note: Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

If the above suggestions do not work try the following to unlock your door:
  1. Disconnect power to range for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect power and see if door will unlatch.
  3. If door does not unlatch, and you do have food in the oven, wait for oven to cool completely and try again. If it still will not open you will need service.
  4. If door does not unlatch, and you do not have food in the oven, set the oven up to clean for 1-2 hours.
  5. Wait approximately 30 minutes and try to unlock the door.
  6. If the door unlocks, the control has reset itself and there should not be any other problems.
  7. If the door will not unlock or if you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
Note: Under no circumstances should you ever force the door or latch open.

Soap door opens during drying cycle because soap is still dry when it says its finished


The soap door solenoid may have had water leak into it causing it to jam. The solenoid is mounted behind the main door interior panel which must be removed to access the part. Be sure to turn off the power to the machine before working on it. Make sure that the soap door operates freely when unlatched. The solenoid itself, has a metal plunger that is drawn into the coil when it is powered on and that unlatches the soap door. Take the plunger out of the coil and clean any white deposits from it--same with the coil interior. Don't apply oil to anything as it will gum-up the solenoid operation. Hope this helps.

Detergent door does not open during session


Sounds like a bad dispenser solenoid, or it is not getting the prompt to open from the controller or timer and it also sounds like it is still under warranty, get them out to look at it while you can.

Water is not coming into my Maytag dishwasher.


Hi,
Is the door open or unlatched?Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons or utensils), that may be interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure. The lights for cycles selected will flash if the door is opened while running a cycle.
Is there power to the dishwasher?Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.
Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob?The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.
Is the control lock option activated?
The indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked. Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.
Is the delay start option activated?To cancel the delay and cycle, press Start/Cancel twice.
Is the water shutoff valve turned on?Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.
