The drainage pipe was blocked so I simply un-clogged it and made the machine drain and it all seems to be going well. Cheers.

What does it mean when 'FP" is displayed to my washing machine (Whirlpool AWM 6125) ??


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


PF or FP error means power failure which is generally caused when the control board inside the unit goes bad. You can try unplugging the unit for 15-30 minutes, if the issue returns then the control board needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Whirlpool AWM 8143 - Starts a cycle and then starts flashing open door light and won't go further. Door is shut properly. Tried turning it off at the power and back on to no avail.


This is either a problem with the door lock itself or most probably a motor failiure as the door open light also indicates some kind of motor problem. If your appliance is 4/5 years and above then you will most likely need to change the set of carbon brushes on the motor and this will solve your problem
