Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as if it helps you.
When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop, Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly. It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch. Your error code will determine this. Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on.
Red spin light = 1
2nd rinse light =2
1st rinse light =4
last wash light=8
4th wash light=16
3rd wash light=32
2nd wash light=64
1st wash light=128
To get out of it you need to press start, the display should go daft. Press start again and the display should settle down. Now press the on/off button and the start button at the same time and hold them down for a few seconds until the display shows d-end or d-off. Your machine should now work.
Unplug your appliance before working on it Thank You
hi penie92 .Just read your posting.For the LCD screen not to show any characters then I am afraid you need a new display board.Could you please tell me what light is lit?Is this the light for the LCD display?Please reply with additional information and I can help you rectify this fault.
If there is power and lights are showing, but the door will still not open, then it could be one of several things.
First and foremost the door lock could be faulty, or the door handle or latch mechanism could be faulty or broken, if the door lock is not getting power then it is probably the main cotrol unit at fault.
I feel you should get someone to look at it for you.
