SOURCE: wont work, flashes LR

rapoyner The "LR" error code means "locked rotor". It appears on the display after the machine has repeatedly tried to turn the motor. The cause of the problem could be the motor itself, the motor control board, the main control board or the wiring. If your washer is less then five years old most likely the parts are still under Maytag warranty. It has very sophisticated design and I wood recommend to call the Maytag authorized repair man even if the warranty is already expired. Gendos

Have you had a storm or power surge lately. May need a new electronics panel installed. That is what happened to mine. Once it is fixed, you should get a surge suppressor that is made for major appliances

SOURCE: Kenmore Front loader Washer Problems

Hi, I got this exact Kenmore washer from Black Friday.  They finally installed last week and the vibrations were way out of control!  I looked around the machine and inspected the installation manual after spending hours leveling the thing and finally figured out that most likely cause is the foam shipping part at the bottom of the machine.  I called Sears to come back out since I have a pedestal screwed on the bottom, trapping the foam.  They came out and didn't think it was the issue.  I asked them to take it out anyway, and sure enough it worked.  For the first time my machine is working just the way it should...I wonder how many washers were installed this way?
Tip: To confirm that this is the problem, if you push down on the drum from the inside of the washer, you should be able to make the foam squeak...there's your problem!

SOURCE: My Whirlpool duet washer lights flash/beep

probably your door then, look at the door itself, at the latch is it broken? should form a complete square hole with four sides. if broken some part is probably inside lock asm. if complete, look at lock and determine if its in the lock position with door open, a arm will be up preventing the latch from going in. replace as necessary. Old duets (red lights) use standard lock asm same as GE and samsung. New duets (green lights) use whirlpool/new maytag unique asm. New locks come in two interchageable models, German (made in china) and Mexican, Mexican model is more troublesome, get german.
If lights flash during a cycle or other time, its giving a code, note the F code displayed

SOURCE: Kenmore 48102 Front-Loading Washer

I have had the same problem. I unplug the washer for a couple of hours and then run the rinse/spin cycle and it takes care of the problem. I've had my machine for 2 1/2 years and this problem started exactly after the first year ended. The first time it happened, I called for repair but before the repair guys came I tried this and so far it has worked. It happens about every few months.iIt's a pain but so far no repair guy bill, yet.

Lights flash and beep nine times

Hello, there might be a faulty wire that is connected to the motherboard, or a wire that is detached from the motherboard. I would consult the company's customer service first and make sure that it is the motherboard first before, I spend a large sum of money replacing something that was never broken in the first place. Maybe it's just a faulty wire, or something small. Consult the customer care first, before doing anything drastic. Best Regards

Lights # 2 and #7 flash and beep

If the lights are showing the correct code, the motor controller is faulty because the 'tranducer is out of range', When Motor Controller boards fail, it's often because of another component has failed first...Best you consider a tech...Good luck....Nomess

the beeping usually is there to tell you something.
It is possible there is not hot water being supplied when you have hot or warm selected
Maybe the water is filling to slow
maybe the filter i clogged
maybe the barrel is out of alignment ( cased but imbalance from previous wash )
is it a top or front loader.
what lights flash when the beeping occurs?
