It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Electrolux ewf 1029. What's wrong with it?

Something not working? Problems which you can resolve yourself, before calling the After Sales Service.
During machine operation it is possible that the end light
4 flashes= the door has not been closed
2 flashes= the machine does not empty
1 flash= the machine does not fill.
Once the problem has been eliminated, press the START/PAUSE button. In the case that the blown fuses due to consumption exceeding 10 amps and also have problems with the front cover microswiche which is not activating when you close the door. You should check the condition of the engine and change the microswiche of the door. Remove any objects from the pump impeller by rotating it.

Craftsman 53918 - 3/4 hp, belt drive garage door opener. Wall unit says safety sensors misaligned. Replaced them as suggested by manual, no fix. Does not appear to be any power from where you plug...

The main light flashing 10 times is the sign of a door sensor problem. Check to see if the small light on each sensors is lit and not flickering. If you cannot get both lights to come on your sensors or the wiring to them is bad.

Simpson ezi loader washing machine clicks 3 times then the end button lights up without even starting the cycle. does anyone have a solution for this?Solve this problem 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 This is a... Solution...

It sounds like a door switch fault see if the end light and the start/pause light are flashing count the flashes if end flashes 4 times and the start/pause once or maybe more this could be error 41, door switch fault.A door switch would cost about $ 20 but there may still be a problem with the main Programmer.
Good luck.

Both lights on our garage door sensors are green (not blinking), but the door will not close with the remote or button in the garage. It does close if you force it by holding down the button in the garage....

If the main light flashes 10 times when the door starts to close and then reverses it is a door sensor problem. Look very closely at the lights on the sensors. If one of them is flickering ever so slightly it will give you the problem you have.

If the main light is not flashing then you need to increase the down force which is near where all those white wires go. A 1/4 turn should do it.

Door light flashes 4 times and can hear 4 clunks?

First measure the door lock, make sure it's fine, then ensure that there's current flowing towards the door lock. if it'll trip all the electricity out you'll need to ru very close inspection or to replace the main circuitboard

Update me about your progress
