Cleaned filter, washer still won't run

I cleaned the filter and the washer still won't start. It locks the door, turns one direction and then the other, then unlocks. I have unplugged it and it does the same thing. All help is appreciated.

WasherMama,

I think they all start out that way - sort of a self diagnostic check on all its functions (lock, turn one way, turn the other, unlock) before it actually starts washing. After I wait a moment (or longer) it relocks the door and only then does the water start to run and the cycle begin.
I hope I'm not just stating the obvious.

Water fill and start


if the water valve is bad it will hum and no water will enter the washer,first thing is to see if it's a problem with the houseicon1.png water valve or the washer valve,shut off the water supply,reomve the water hoses from the back of washer,mark the hoses so they go back on the same way,stick the hoses into the washer or a bucket and turn the water on,if water comes out of hoses then you know the problem is just the washer,check the valve,look at the screens where the hoses connect to the valve,usually sediment gets in there and the valve on the washer has to be replaced,on some the screens can be removed and cleaned,also you say you have trouble with the lock,what's humming is it the lock or the valve,if you turn it to drain and spin will it run?you could have a bad door switch,if door doesn't latch washer won't run but most likely bad water valve

Washer Flashing Error Code ND; door won't open after turning washer off


Hello,

The ND error code means NO DRAIN. ,

The usually reason the door remains locked once the cycle is over is because the filter screen on the drain pump is blocked so not all the water could drain out...the door lock is tied into the pump and until the pump tells the control board that the wate r is out the door will not unlock. This tip i wrote will show ya how to take apart the washer to clean the filter on the pump.

LG washing machine fail to spin at end of the cycle


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum.
You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not familiar which with the model you mention) there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.

Sorry. It seems that I have fixed it by using your solutions!

Interestingly I found a bobby pin down there!

I get the F:16 error nearly every time I run my Bosch front loading Maxx 7 washer. I've cleaned out the water filter on the intake line, blown compressed air in the line...many times that will do it, but...


F16 has to do with your door lock. you probably have a faulty door lock. the machine senses the door is open and will stop. the door lock isnt that expensive and should solve your problem. if that doesn't solve it then you may have a faulty control board. but i would first start with the lock

Not draining and washer arm not spinning


Have you cleaned the drain filter? The symptoms you describe indicate that the filter are totally clogged.

Cleaning filters should be done every other week to maintain good function in dishwashers, it is not uncommon people forget that.

You access the filter by removing the perforated stainless steel plate at the floor of the washer tub, usually there is a round plastic knob in the middle that you turn counter-clockwise then lift it up. Underneath this plate you will find the main filter, take it out and clean with a soft brush under running water.

Good luck!
