If you think your washing machine may be faulty, check the following points before calling a Service Engineer. These checks could prevent a charge being made for the Service man's visit if the machine is found to be in perfect working order.Initially check the filter on your washing machine and clean if necessary, your manual should detail this procedure.
If your machine will not start or complete the programme, check:

  • The plug, the socket and the switch, if necessary, with another appliance.
  • The fuse in the plug.
  • That the door is closed.
  • That a programme is accurately selected.

If water will not enter, check:
  • The hot and cold hoses are correctly connected to the relevant caps and that these are turned on.
  • That a suitable programme has been selected.

If water will not drain, check:
  • That the outlet hose is not kinked or raised more than 40° from the floor.
  • If you wish to remove articles when the water will not pump out, place the end of the drain hose into a bucket on the floor and allow water to drain out by gravity, noting that more than one bucketful may be present. Hook the hose into the sink again and try the spinner before removing the articles - if this fails most of the water can be baled out with a cup.
  • If the above method fails to remove the water then the pump is probably blocked - do not open the door, but contact your nearest Service Engineer.

Why won't washing machine start?


It is most probably the door sensor that is faulty. If the sensor does not sense the door closing the machine will stay in "open door" mode and will not start with it's program.

If the machine is still under warranty, take it in for repair or have someone check it out for you. It should be a quick fix, if parts are available.

Hoover nextra washing machine door wont lock / cycle start


sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

Near the end of the rinse cycle there was a load noise accompanied with a lot of vibration. I stopped it and took out the wet clothes and fininshed manually. To test i put the machne on spin cycle and...


if the clothes bunch up on one side the tub doesn't spin evenly and goes off balance,the tub will start banging all around,if this happens,open the lid and move the clothes around to even them out so all the wieght isn't on one side,it's a common thing mostly with a few items in the washer but can happen with any size load.if it keeps happening send the brand name and the model number.you should be fine.

I have a Kenwood KDW12SL3A and have used it about 5 times and now it flashes up E1 near the end of the program. What can I do?


i had an e4 error and after lookin itup i tilted it forward after i done this i got an e1 error after playing about for a bit and checkin all hose's and connection , i came to the conclusion it was an air lock so i put on a 8min rinse mode and when it counted down to 7 mins paused it and toped up the bottom of the dish washer with boiling water from the keetle and started the rinse again. straight away you could hear the air lock movein once rinse mode fininshed i put onto a 2hr 36 min wash and is workin fine now. so make sure your machine is level and try this it may work

Washer won't start, stopped at beginning of cycle and the door lock flashed. after about 5-6 flashes the display read: FL. Tryed to start again, unplugged it for a while several times. nothing happens....


FL:
Failed to lock.

Trigger:
Door lock monitor switch in door lock mechanism unable to communicate to control board the door is locked.

Action to be taken:
1.Check wire connections in harness leading from machine control board to door lock mechanism.
2.Check solenoid and door lock enable switch in door lock mechanism.
3.Replace responsible component.

If you need to open the door.
Maytag's Neptune washer has a latch and lock on the door. If this lock fails to open when the cycle is finished. You can rescue your clothes by:
1) Remove the bezel from the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser.

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.

Door lock light flashing


Shame to say it but yes..

You board behind the control pannel is blown. this is caused by either a faulty door swtich or the motor.. Your model number tells me its most likely the door switch.. The control board will need replacing and the door swtich.

Getting to the board is easy only three screws near the soap draw. make sure you write which wires go where and to getto the door lock undue the door rubber if you needany further advice let me know
i have worked on more the 300 of these machines
