Hi just read your posting.Sorry to ask you this but could you confirm the lights that are lit.Starting from the left of the machine to the right which ones are lit when the machine is beeping.Is it the 2nd and 4th or the 5th and 7th ---etc---?The reason I am after this information is there is no fault code with that number.Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi just read your posting.Now I rechecked my manual and it tells me the fault with your machine is the OUT OF BALANCE SWITCH, which is located under your top panel.Remove the 2 screws at the back of the top panel and tilt the panel forward to expose the computer.It should be either gray or brown.Now have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter?The switch is under the computer to the right.Remove the screw holding the computer to the frame and slowly move the computer so you can see the switch underneath.This switch will have 2 wires to it.With the meter I need you to test for a circuit or conductivity between the 2 terminals where the wires are attached.Please turn the machine off at the wall before you work on the machine.Now if the switch is has no conductivity between the 2 terminals then this is what the problem is.Replace the switch and refit panels and the machine should work once again. Please reply for further help or to tell me how you got on.

How can you get a washer smelling good?


First of all this mainly happens when you use cold water washing, the plastic bowl(s) become slightly porous over time & the dirt from clothes adhere to the area between the inner & outer bowls.

To clean & remove smell.

1. Put washer on hot wash, high level & let it fill with HOT water.

2. Stop washer, put in an old towel.

3. Add a bucket of hot water (This allows the water level to be above the scum mark inside machine.

4. Add washing soda to the bowl (double the amount it says on the packet).

5. Start washer & allow to run to the end of the first wash cycle.

6. Stop washer & allow to sit for a few hours.

7. After the few hours, start washer & allow it to run the rest of the full cycle.

you can do the same procedure with Vinegar.

you may have to repeat procedure a few times.

TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN YOU NEED TO DO THIS PROCEDURE ONCE EVERY 3 MONTHS.

The worst case scenario, you will have get a technician to remove the inner bowl & manually clean these areas.

My f&p gw611 Fills up but then wont wash.the 2nd


Most possibly be Error code 56,
Is common in 11 series machines & early series 12.
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 Maytag Neptune will not go into the spin cycle, instead the letters "nf " come on the display. What can I do to prevent this and to have the cycle completed?


Bonnie,

NF = No Fill the control board receives signaling for the washer during the water fill cycle. With most cycles the depth of water is around 3.5 inches in the wash basket. I know a Bulky Wash cycle selection will fill the wash tub to a high fill which is about 7.5 inches of water in the wash basket.

Is the washer filling the machine with any water? Do you hear water entering the machine? If you are doing a cold water fill and there is no or very little water in the wash basket with the NF error code. Try a Warm or Hot fill and see if the machine will fill and start the wash cycle.

Assuming you are doing cold water wash loads. You could have a water line block at the inlet screen or a failed cold water inlet valve which will not open. Try the above and let me know the results..........Rich

My frigidaire front load washer will start a wash, complete the first cycle but then stop and flash all the lights and beep continously until I press "start" or "cancel". If I press "start" again it just...


Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

My HE3 washer fills up with about 3 inches of water on its own when it is not in a washer cycle


Fill valve is not sealing correctly when it is switched off

If your machine is hot & cold fill, try turning off the cold water at the inlet and see if the machine still fills up if it does then it is a faulty hot valve if it does not then it is the cold one

They are easy to change and easy to buy from dealers or third party suppliers

Water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.
