    Thanks for getting back to me. There seems to be a slight problem in the details at your end ?
    The questions I asked related to a DEAWOO. Front loading cloths washer "latest model" ? It appears to be stuck in between cycles or something? The door lock is on "permanently" and an error message "NO. 03 " flickers on and off. Worked great for three previous washes then all of a sudden it's all locked up and wont finish or open....I have turned it off (both power at wall and off button) "like a computer type of thing" but when turned on again still has the same problem? Is there a reset button or something or is it totally stuffed ? ;) Thanks

LG Intellowasher WD-8026C having problems with the door latch, I keep getting an error message. Latch appears not to be connecting and locking the door. to start the machine.

The DE error or fault code indicates that the door is not latching properly. Check the lid or door operation to be sure it's not binding and that the door alignment is correct. Also, check the door/lid hinges to be sure they're not binding. Finally, make sure the door catch is in place and not broken. You may need to replace the door hook/catch or the door lock assembly

Maytag front loader 2000 series code LF followed instructions in manual and has no power. Outlet works

Hi, is this a new washing machine? If not, then these Maytag front loading washing machines use a paraffin locking switch in the front panel to lock the door during operation. Now, if the switch has gone south and trip the the lock switch without locking the door. Then the washing machine want turn on.

What is a parfin locking switch work is a small container with paraffin (wax) in it with a heater. When the washing machine is turn on. The control board indicate that the machine is in operation and a small amount of current is applied to the paraffin switch to the heating element. This make the parfin to expand trip the locking mechanism and locking door during operation. Keep the door lock from accidental openings. It will take about 4 minute after the washing machine has quite it running operation to open the front loader door. The paraffin needs to cool down to release the locking mechanism. stewbison

GE WCVH6800 Pressing start results in two short beeps. The pause/start button keeps blinking and it will not start a cycle.

Is the door lock button on, but the door not actually locked? Our door lock switch keeps going out. We have replaced it 4 times in the last 3 years.

My samsung 7kg front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door

UE = Unbalance Error

Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.
If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

Error on Westinghouse mastermind 708 front loader washing machine

This happend to me once, and it was in relation to a blocked intake filter.

- Check that the intake houses are not cloged and the small filter under neath is clean (Use an old tooth brash)
- Also check the opening on the front bottom left of the machine. (Open with a flat head screw driver)
. My one had coins in it. Note: drain with the small pipe into a backet so when you open it you don't have watter everywere.
