Hi There

My washing machine works fine but the display has no lights showing up. It did initially but has gone 'dead' for a few months now - my wife sets it from memory but is getting fed up with not being able to use the various functions. any ideas?

Re: Display not working

Disconnect power.
Open the top of the machine , screw in top back ,
follow the ribbon cable from the front to the control unit ,
reseat the connector.
That is likely all you can do for yourself.

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

My hotpoint washing machine wt741 will do nothing except fast spin, LED display is flashing TEST, it will not stop doing this unless i switch if off, what can i do?

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

Frigidaire affinity atf6000es1 - control panel locked

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines hope it may for you..............And please rate me if helped

Beko WMA 765s washer, power works no display

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.

Shows "LE" in display.

"LE" error means the motor has overloaded. There is no way to fix this yourself. You will probably need a new motor. Call for an engineer.
