Remove 3 wire connector from the interlock unit. This has 3 wires one black and 2 white. Short out the sockets of the two white leads. Start machine and the door lock light on front panel will be on.

My maytag pav2300aww will not spin at all yet it agitates and drains well I was told to clean the agitator so I took it off yet the washer still don't spin the switch look wore out to me so I by-passe


Check the water level sensor and the lid safety interlock. Many washers will work fine with the lid open EXCEPT during the spin cycle, so this is the first logical place to look. Try bypassing the lid safety interlock switch.

Indesit 123 FAULT F06


I had this error and engineer said the meaning of the codes on the web are wrong as they don't like to disclose their real code meanings for pure protectionism reasons. F06 on IWD7145 is a burnt out door interlock IDC error. He replaced the part number C00085194 (replacement door interlock) and microritardator part number 085194 and it works ok now.

Fault code dL and F. please help me. the machine show this when is plug in but not on a program, can not start it


The FdL fault code usually refers to problem with the door interlock. Normally when the machine is on a program the door locks to prevent inadvertant opening.

This fault code indicates the interlock is not working and it will not start.

Check the lock for any obvious signs of debris or damage but if none it may need a replacement.

Washes fine will not spin and drain


Hi,
One of the main reasons for the washer not to spin or drain is the interlock switch. Top load washers are designed with an interlock switch that stops the machine if the lid is opened during a spin cycle. This switch is operated by a post mounted on the lid that goes into a hole in the rim of the machine and pushes down on the switch, or a bump on the side of the lid right by the hinge that presses against a switch when the lid is closed.
Determine which type you have. If it is the type with a hole and post, get a screwdriver and stick it into the hole with the machine in the spin cycle and the knob pulled out. If the machine starts, then the post is missing or broken.
If you have the other type of door interlock then the switch may not be working, but you will need a service call to fix it.
Would appreciate if you mentioned the model number of the washer.
Thank you for contacting www.Fixya.com

the micro switch which is part of the door interlock may be at fault, & need replacing. Or a wire may be broken/burned off

 in the interlock. Or it may just be stiff, try spraying it with WD40 (not whilst the power is on!!)
