The only Reset is unplugging waiting a few mins and plug it back in. If not perhaps the lid locks have failed.

What will cause my Whirlpool washing machine to set on low speed spin cycle?


The machine uses automatic load sensors to balance the load and when you put something in the machine that is big, like a comforter, it knows that it cannot balance that item. So with a front loader it wont spin at high speed because it would be off balance and either damage the machine or the machine would "walk" because of the off balance motion.

UE Error Code


The UE error code (Unbalanced Error) displays when you wash items that cause the machine to shake badly during the spin cycle, if possible wash and drain the items only, then open the door and stack the items evenly on both sides of the drum in order to balance it, now select the spin cycle.

Why is F16 code flashing up on my bosch avantixx washer dryer


The door is not locked properly.
Open and close the door again and press the "start reload" button (play and pause button). If necessary, open the washing machine door, remove some of the cothing items and then push the door closed again. You can also try switching the washing machine off and on again, setting the programme and then starting the programme.

Why is my frigidaire washer not spinning?


  1. Stopped Mid-cycle
    • If your Frigidaire washing machine started spinning, but then stopped, verify that the power cord is still connected to the outlet. See if the outlet blew by plugging in a different appliance into the outlet. See if you blew a fuse. A blown fuse usually is either black or has broken wires. Replace the fuse. If you have a circuit breaker instead of a fuse box, reset the circuit breaker if it's been tripped. Check the lid switch, which is located inside the main housing of the washing machine, near the door frame. If the switch is burned out, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer.
    Pump
    • The pump's sole responsibility is to remove water during the spin cycle. If the pump isn't working properly, see if it's clogged with debris or clothing. Use needle-nose pliers to remove these items. Check the pump pulley, which is connected to the pump. This component must move freely for the pump to work. If it won't turn, purchase a new pump pulley since you can't usually fix this component.
    Lid
    • Check the door latch assembly if the door isn't closing correctly. If any of these components are broken, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer. If you do not, the washer won't start spinning since it believes the door isn't closed. Your Frigidaire washing machine won't start the spin cycle until the lid or door is closed. Always close the lid, and remove any items preventing the lid from fully closing. Always close the dispenser drawer.
    Additional Concerns
    • Never over- or under-load your washing machine. Your Frigidaire washer may not enter the spin cycle if the load is too large, since this can damage the washing machine. Remove a few pieces of clothing. If the load is too small, add a few similar items to the washing machine. Check the internal belt, drive motor and motor coupling. If any of these components are broken or very worn, they may not work properly, preventing the washer from entering the spin cycle. Order replacement parts from a parts dealer. Check the tub and basket bearings, and get new ones if the current ones have broken components or are defective.

Your blanket probably caused an out of balance on the tub which caused the washer to stop in the middle of the cycle. The lock switch is a time delayed switch. Requires several minutes before it is activated to release. When washing single items you need to add another clothing item of approximately the same weight to create a balance during spin.

Washer stopped washing at rinse


Could it be ul? Sounds like it got out of balance. Try opening the lid and rearranging the contents. If you are washing heavy items like coats or big blankets or comforters, be sure to chose BULKY setting and low or no spin. Hope this helps!

When I wash comforter in whirlpool duet front load water comes


first an foremost your washer isn't designed to wash comforters, the capacity isn't large enough. only clothes sheets . the reason ur door wont stay closed is the bulk item is pushing it open. overloading washer will cause $$ major problems. simiply take that to the cleaners an save urself some big bucks.

Whirlpool control locked


Power shd be on. Press and hold "end of cycle" button for 3 seconds. Always wait for 2 minutes after the wash is over for the machine to release the door lock; an inbuilt safety device. Never force washer doors, you'll have probs.
Check out your filter too.
