Symbol ol a key will not allow a wash cycle


This indicates that the DOOR SWITCH is faulty and is not contacting without which the machine will not start off as it encounters an error for safety.
You can remove the door switch clean and reset it or else replacement is the best option.

Machine goes thru all the wash cycle but gets to last min and keeps spinning then comes up with f11


Not knowing what sort of machine you have, one of these should help.


F11 - No hot fill.The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.

F11 - Pump cannot be activated - Book a washing machine repair.

F11 - Heater timed out. The heater has not reached the required level. Book a dishwasher repair.

F11 - No pump connection - Book a tumble dryer repair.

I have a bosh dishwasher that has not drained of water and the tap light is red on the indicator board


Hello there:
Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them. Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water. Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. I you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

Wash cycle wont finish start button does an 8 flash cycle


Hi, these machines get corrosion in the door safety switch. I would start there.

A little cleaning of the contacts might get that machine going. How about a repair manual?
I have a few:

F 02 error


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases this means there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean if necessary. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

It is stuck on wash cycle


The cycle select knob may need to be replaced, or u may have a bad solenid in your washer. If a solenoid is bad, it wont allow the washer to go past a certain point in the cycle.

Kenmore Elite HE 3t washer - stops and flashes error code F 02


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you may have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system somewhere. The washer will NOT complete a cycle with the condition present that is causing the error code. In most cases this means there is a clog in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:
