If it still has water in it.... most likely you either have a obstruction in the clean out located front bottom of unit behind panel or the drain pump itself has failed.... the code is drain... it gets to its first rinse cycle the wont drain therefore will throw codes on you.... good luck service 18 years a/c and heating unlimited texas

Zanussi Washer Dryer wont wash!


Sounds like the switch that tells the controller that the door is closed and locked is actually bad or the plastic molded part holding the switch is broken. Inspect the interface for cracks.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

How to operate the washing machines front load washer brandt bf850


Hi,
  • Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.

  • Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
  • Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
  • Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
  • Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
  • Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.

  • Please rate this solution. Regards.

    Washer will not start. Getting "dr" message . Door lock light is not lit. Tried cancel and restart tried unplug and restart still getting dr message


    The 'dr' error code stands for 'door switch is not closed'. If the door is closed properly, then you will have to replace the door switch assebly.

    Hope this helps!

    Top 10 frontload washer problems

    1)Water fill problem: water took more than 10 minutes to fill to desired level sometimes indicated as a LF/IE or long fill/inlet error. Water valve screens clogged, hoses kinked, low water pressure, unpaid water bill. Check hose, clean screens.
    2)Excessive vibration: noisey,roar, knocking noises. Bad damper,bearing or broken trunnion. no error code
    3)Dispenser drawer open/detergent in wrong compartment: washer will not operate with drawer open or cleaning products in wrong compartment.
    4)Washer won't drain: clogged pump/filter, slow or clogged drain usually indicated as a LD/DE, if a code is given (long drain/drain error) Clear pump of objects
    5)Drum overfilled: usually caused by sediment in the water level pressure sensing tube going up to the main control.Find it and blow out the sediment, re-secure pump out water and retry.
    6)Door open, Door not latched, clothes/objects keeping door from completely closing. Tighten door latch, add washers if nessisary to make good contact and close door tighter in case of leaks.Note some models send a signal to the motor and another to the control letting both know the door is secure before proceeding, corrosion gets into the lid lock and the door can be locked and the control is ready but the motor ain't getting the message.
    7)Cold water does not enter washer: hoses connected backwards. Oops.
    8)Oversudsing: Wrong Detergent, too much detergent, detergent in wrong dispensing drawer, turbidity monitors pick up particles in the water and judge soil content then the washer allows for extra time to wash the clothes, if the wrong detergent is in there the machine thinks that is too much and declares a suds error. On some models a suds detect is determined by the motor over amping, most machines will try a few mini loads to correct the problem. Remove detergent, retry
    9)Locked motor: error LE,loose connection,broken wire/hallsensor, motor overheated/failed.
    10)Water heating error, hE, the thermister/heater is out.

    I will leave that on there for a while but it takes up broadband so print that manual out and keep it close to that washer.
