Question about Washing Machines
The water heater is blinking for a start up failure, heater never turns on, just makes a clicking noise everytime it tries to turn on. Heater has kicked the braker.
Sounds like very worn motor brushes to me, as its trying to turn the drum but has'nt the power needed to maintain any momentum,and the blinking door light is because of the bad cotact from brushes to motor.About £20 for a set of brushes or get an engineer to fit new brushes,but get a price first.

sounds as if you have a bad mootor coupling, part number 285753, easy enough part to change, easier to search on the you tube site for whirlpool motor coupling repair, fo rthe video, then try to explain procedure, but definalty easy enough repair for home owner

you can access the drain pump assy by removing the 3 screws across the bottom of front panel, after that youll see the drain pump directly in front of you, youll need to unscrew t he filter cap form the "button trap"assmebly, this is what catches all the junk left in pockets, or the baby socks, so they dont make itr into the puppmp itself. be warned there will be water wanting to come out after unscrewing the cap. ALOT depending on amount of water in machine!!!!!!

The problem is that the sump is full of penneys and nails and screws etc. left in posckets. Pull down the flap on the front lower section of the machine, put down a towel and unscrew the filter. Water will run out but only a small amount, approx a cup or two. You will more than likely find it full of debris like nails and change. Stick you fingers in and claar around the inside and put the filter back in place. This should sort the problem

Blocked pump, open flap bottom right, drain off excess water manually and remove pump filter. Make sure you get right down and have a look in at the impellor and give it a turn to make sure its free to rotate. You'll probably find a coin, button etc that is catching the pump impellor. When you start a cycle the pump engages for a few seconds and then the w/m takes in water, so if something is stopping the impellor rotating the w/m will not start.
Best of luck

If its rattling check the drum for anything
caught in it.Washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign
of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem
may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.
Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud
noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has
come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn
of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire
time the drum is spinning.)
Look for obvious dents and creases in the
drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the
drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.
Clear the water pump from obstructions like
coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is
Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires
if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can
also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the
drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if
you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or
wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.
