Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Unit will not turn on at all. Power source definately works. Unsure if unit stopped during dry cycle or finished and never came back on, but clothes were dry, indicating it was finished with the wash cycle (there were also very few items in the machine at the time). All drains have been cleaned and there are no fuses out in the apartment's breaker box. Are there any internal fuses in the machine we can check? Also, the door would not open, which you can normally do even if the power to the machine is off (Used manual door override to open door). Thank you for your time. the washing machine door won't open after the cycle has completed - how can i manually overide??

To open the door. First kill the power supply. There is a vaccum switch as part of the door lock which has a small diameter pipe connecting from the lock to the a vaccum container mounted on or near the pump remove this pipe to allow air in to the switch. Whilst you are in the process clear the vaccum container, pump and all pipes leading to and from pump of debris (usually lime scale related). Then reconnect everything. Put a cup full of soda crystals in drum and wash on hottest temperature.

Malber WD1000 wont condense the water that is fed through during the drying cycle


Since it drains properly during the wash cycle, we know the drain pump and its impeller (propeller) work, and the coin trap (you called it a filter) and hoses are not clogged. By the way, turning the rightmost knob to "4" will start the pump-out cycle, so you don't have to open that trap-door at the bottom. To condense, the machine needs COLD water (spritzing on an internal screen) during drying. Make sure your cold water hose is connected to the outside (outboard) connection on the back of the machine. As a long shot: If the gray drain hose is pushed too far down into your home's drain pipe (more than 8") there could be a "back-siphon" where dirty water siphons back into the washer. It's a long shot, but it does happen.
Lastly, the controller board (mounted at top of right side) could be bad, and not sending on-off commands to the pump during drying. During drying, the drain pump should cycle on and off constantly, every few minutes. Do you hear it running? If you remove back (about 12 Torx screws), at your lower left you will see the pump. There are only 2 wires (120 VAC) and they can be connected either way. Stick a meter on the terminals and see if power is cycling on and off. If not, the controller board is bad.
You can order one from Malber (in NYC) by calling Nancy at 516-323-5299. Tell her Mike, in Wash. D.C., says hi.

Stuck on "problem detected" screen


Hi deejay961...You may want to begin with the following procedures. Please update your post with your results, and if needed, we can progress until we correct your issue....good luck my friend...chris The Harmony washer electronics can automatically determine if problems exist with the machine. Sometimes an error code can also be present because of things the machine cannot control: like changes in house voltage, water pressure, or temperature. "A problem has been detected with this unit" will be displayed on the screen. The most common solution for this message is to turn the machine OFF and then ON. However, this message will sometimes cause the control to stop the machine from working. With this type of error, the control panel will need to be reset. The following steps will allow you to reset your control. Solution: 1. Clear the ERROR from the screen: Press and hold the MY CYCLES and BACK buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The control will display any recorded errors. Please write down what error codes are shown on your screen in case service is needed. If a MORE icon is displayed on the screen, press MORE to list additional errors. When the EXIT button appears, press EXIT. 2. Remove Power: Follow the onscreen instructions to remove power (unplug unit) and then immediately plug unit back in. 3. Clear Setup Mode: After power is restored, a setup screen that begins with "Congratulations..." will be shown. DO NOT PRESS the OK button shown at the bottom of the screen. Press the START/STOP and POWER buttons simultaneously until the Home Screen is displayed. Your unit is ready to function normally.

My HWD1000 Haier Washer/Dryer combo error EC4


EC4 is regarding: The temperature of air vent.

Within 30 minutes of dry cycle there is 5 minutes in which the temperature is not increasing.

The dryer heater is not working properly. Call a repair technician.

Alternatively, create a custom wash cycle with no dry cycle and hang dry the laundry if you are past warranty and do not want to pay to repair it.

Washing machine suddenly stopped working during cycle


Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

Stuck on "problem detected" screen


Press the Back Button and the Heart (My Cycles) buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds or more. This will reset the screeen. Diagnostics will then run. Let it run through the diagnostics on the screen and then the washer can be used.

Washer keeps stopping during any cycle


the humming noise could be from two sources and it is worth while doing a few simple checks first the drain pump is jammed with a foreign object. check nothing caught in the impellor second water not available - check taps turned on. also turn water off, undo fill hoses, put in a bucket and turn water back on try on drain or spin programs to check water drainage as well

Sounds like the problem is with the control board.  There is an internal fuse in the board but it is not replaceable.  You will need a qualified LG technician to service this unit.
