Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the washer seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it, if yours does not have a timer then the issue is with the electronic control that has gone bad and should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    If the Timer is fine then its the electronic control that seems to be bad.

    It might be the switch have you tried another outlet, if you have then it is the electronic control that has gone bad.

My maytag dishwasher will run for a short then stop running, I'll push on the door the machine will run again then will stop again


your door is not staying latched.. imagine if it did stay running and the door came completely open, what a mess that would be. so there are safety switches that help stop the washing if the door opens. not too sure how to fix your exact washer.. but the problem is the door not staying closed. maybe you can jamm the door shut while it is running? its not the best answer, but probably the most free way to fix it

My Duet Dryer starts runs a minute or two then beeps two or three times and stops. The display lights flash, if I push start it starts again but then stops again after a minute or two. I've gone t


I would first unplug the unit and remove the top cover. There are 3 screws towards the back of it. Push the cover back towards the wall and pull off. To the left you will see a control panel (usually black metal case), remove the 3 screws and flip over so you can see the control. Make sure there are no loose connections. I have ran into quite a few that had relay connection wires loose. If everything is ok. The next thing you would want to do is remove the front lower access panel (kick plat panel) and blower chamber. There is a thermal fuse and a thermistor located behind it. If you have a meter then take the proper continuity tests that are displayed on schematic. Both the thermal fuse and thermistor are fairly cheap.

Got an F02 code on my Kenmore ELite HE3 washer. How do I unlock the door to get the water out?


Try pushing the start/pau botton several times,this causes the drain to start drining, when it stops and starts flashing again,push the botton again.The water needs to come down a level and sometimes it may start to spin.I've had several problems with this type of washer,But all machines do this.After you get the clothes to spin,remove them and put,draino-max gel or Rooto-rooter drain opener in drum and let it sit 1-3hrs.then run machine heavy-duty hot-water no clothes,you may have to run it several times to get all the cleaner out.the pump may be clogged with animal-hair or strings from clothes.good luck

On machine shows c610


sometimes, this code can be caused by a power fluctuation or outage. try this: turn machine on, press and hold these keys in this exact order. "stop/reset", "start" and then "left copy exposure" key. let up and quickly hit "stop/reset" again. at this time you should be in the maintenance mode and see "U000" on display. next, using the "zoom" keys, go to "U163". then press "start" and you should see "CLE". press "start" again. then press "stop/reset" twice and you should see "U000" again. press right "zoom" key to go to U001 and press "start" to get out of maint. mode. turn copier off, wait 3 secs. and turn back on. if message comes back, you truly have a bad fuser, but my experience is you'll be back up and running.

good luck,

Turns off after a few minutes


sounds like your motor is overheating or going bad. sometimes lint built up around the motor can cause it to overheat. or the motor is dying.

Stops drains and bleeps with only spin light illuminated


It sounds like you need to re programme the
machine.
With the machine plugged into the wall and
turned on and the headset turned off this is what
you do.
Push and hold down the start button, while doing that you need to then push and hold down the power button.
Hold them down for about 5 seconds, during
which time you may a series of up to 3 beeps.
Then release the buttons.
Turn the machine off and then on again followed by the start button. Allow the machine to then run the complete cycle.
This should correct your problem, if this doesn't then you may need to then look at replacing the computer panels.

Fisher and paykel smart drive top loader , Wont fill properly .


Well where to start .....
This brand has a hell of a lot of quirks.
The first thing to try is this : With the power on at the wall and the machine off ,push and hold down the start button , then push and hold down the power button you may hear up to 3 beeps at this time (hold down the buttons for 5 seconds then release) turn machine off and turn it back on and just push start button.
What this does is re programes the computer ,then just leave machine to run cycle
