The washer has power but when you push the start button nothing happens. The machine filled then was paused and it will not drain or restart. Any help out there?

The start button actuates a small switch on the control board. Pressing the start button hard enough can cause damage to the microswitch, and/or loosen its connection to the PC board. If you rock the start button with your finger (ie circular rubbing motion), that sometimes works. Better still, open her up, find the microswitch directly under the start button actuator, a plastic plunger that makes contact with the microswitch, and press the microswitch button directly. Try jiggling the microswitch itself while pressing in the button. If it comes on, then it's a bad solder joint.

Fills, goes 4 minutes and fills, pauses, then fills, pauses then fills, over and over


Sounds like its syphoning out the water. If it was overfilling, you would have water everywhere, the machine would eventually flood. Check the drain hose. Make sure the end is higher than the water level in the machine and that there are no extensions running outside which have an end lower than the water level in the machine, it will start syphoning, usually after the first pump out.

The washer stops half way through all cycles and displays "oL" .


Error oL means overload.
If the "oL" error code appears, the washer has been filled with a load that is too large for its capacity, causing it to drain.

*Remove some items from the washer and add more detergent since the previous amount will have drained with the water.
*Close the washer and press the START/PAUSE/Cancel button to remove error displayed and restart the cycle.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:

*Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
*Plug in washer or reconnect power.
*Re-select the cycle and press Start.

NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and the condition above has been checked, call for service.

Hope this helps.. :)

Drop your drain hose to floor level with bucket under it this will drain with no power applied , pour in as much water as you can to flush it out / clear pump .After all suds clear refit / restart ..Should now fill, wash/ empty and spin...I hope ...

Machine won't restart after reset, 'start/pause' button flashing.


Hello,

When you put it to drain/spin does the pump make any attempt to drain,if not it could be that there is something stuck in the pump,needs draining manually.Another thing to try is to find the fault code.If you hold down the 2 buttons on the far right of panel then press on/off button till lights start chasing,then release the 2 buttons on right hand side.Now the first function button by the on/off button you will need to press until the light above the button reaches the 9th or 10th position this will give you a read out in the display.
E10 = low water press.
E20 = pump or filter.
E30 = press. switch or heater faults.
E40 = Door swich.
E50 = motor.
Some of these numbers can vary there are more but those are the most common.After checking codes switch off machine then back on twice to reset.

Hope this helps.

Can't get washer to start again after pushing pause/cancel button


sounds like central control unit problem, you can check for diagnostic mode operation by setting (door closed) drain/spin, no spin, pressing prewash 4 times in 5 secs pressing prewash again will advance through diagnostic cycle. replacing user interface may also be necessary
