My zanussi zwg 6141p washing machine is calling water at start of cycle but is not going into drawer to swill out detergent , is also stopping half way with the green light on the start button flashin

Some appliances malfunction can be displayed in hexadecimal or in binary code.
So your device is defective and shows you what's wrong. You have to count how many times flashes red light and how many times flashes green light. Red light shows the first error number and green light the second error number.
For example: you forgot to close the door and you started washing machine. After some time (timeout) will generate an alarm. Four times will flash red light and once the green light which means error code " E41 " or "Open door"
" E20 " means "No drain water"
" E10 " means "No fill up water"

The washing machine seems to have stopped during it's cycle ad the door light has come on, now it is stuck with the door light on and I'm not able to reset it, change functions, start a wash,...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

From your desciption it seems to be indicating that there is a problem either with the door lock or more likely the door locked sensor requiring a service call, 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!

I have a whirlpool sixth sense washing machine. the door open light constantly flashing although the door is well shut. No programmes work

We had the same issue: the cycle would start then stop, with the door open light coming on. It turned out to be a faulty contact in the door. Took a technician 15 minutes to fix.

My whirpool locked light keeps flashing and wont wash


The light is flashing due to the door lock error. The door lock is activated as the machine experienced an error or was stopped in middle of a cycle. Or the door was being pulled while the machine was running a cycle. Try unplugging your washer and restart the washer to check if you are still getting the same blinking light. If error is still not resolved then start the rinse/spin cycle & stop the cycle, now press and hold the cancel button for 5-10 seconds. However, if you are still not able to get the door open then you'll need to open the door manually by disassembling the washer.
Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

I select a programme and then press the start button, the door locks but the start light flashes, and nothing happens

When the program is pressed to start then the inlet valve must open and allow the water to come to the drum. if this is not happening then check the voltage to the inlet valve, if there is no voltage then the program controller is not outputting and so defective.
If not the inlet filter/valve is clogged and will need a back flush .

On my whirlpool 7 sense washing machine door light comes on 10 seconds after start and machine stops and wont start without power down

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(
Good luck,

Washing machine wont do anything

rotating timer knob indicates that there is a fault, obviously, so its a case of going through a checklist, based on info given, check in this order, outlet pump, for open circuit, then heater element for open circuit, then maybe the water valves, you have given little information for me to go on as an engineer, please understand, the more you say the more detail we can give ..... ok cheers with looking for the fault, best of luck and work safe
