Dear claughrin

The problem in Fault code F12 can be EEPROM on the main module PCB which is malfunctioning.

A new EEPROM installation is possible and will be a cheap repair.

Alternativaly you have dump on the PCB boards and you have to blow dry the cards in order to remove the dump. (This requires opening the washing machine)

Please be careful, take off any plugs, Electricity is dangerous!

Regards!

    F12
    - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps.

Start button does not activate door lock and will not turn on


It may be a micro switch that is not engaging. Try pushing on the door to see if that solves the problem. If so, put in a spacer to push the switch more.

Why won't my washer start a cycle? Start button LED just flashes. All other lights are steady. Door lock sounds like it engaged, but nothing happens.


There should be a way to enter the washing machine into service mode to view an error code. Check your user manual and then you should have your answer!

Washer won't start


First of all, does the washer make a distinctive "click" when you push the START button? This is an indication that your door latch is locking (or at least making an attempt to lock). Normally, however, the display would have an "fdl" fault code indicating a door lock failure if it were bad. I have seen the latch go bad and not register a fault code, though. You can perform this simple diagnostic test to see if any fault codes register: 1. Select DRAIN/SPIN 2. Under SPIN SPEED select NO SPIN 3. Then, under OPTIONS push the PREWASH button 4 times. You should hear the door latch click then "C00" will show on the display. The washer will begin a series of tests (C01...C05 - depending on options and model) by testing the hot and cold fill valves, the various dispenser compartments, followed by tumble, drain and spin. If there is something wrong the diagnostic test will abort and a fault code will be displayed. The washer usually beeps when it displays a fault code. If you attempt to perform the diagnostic and the display momentarily flashes after you press the PREWASH button the fourth time and goes out, this can also be a symptom of bad door latch. You need to perform these simple steps first in order to further diagnose. Let me know what you come up with.
