Question about Avanti Top Load Washer W797
There could be a couple of possibilities which are explained below :-
1. Lid switch is not being engaged .Remove rear top cover , Phillips screws - snap clips use flat blade screw driver to pop cover .Look at rear of lid (door) right side plastic arm part of lid snapped off replace lid, then check safety switch manually over ride switch as a test .If machine spins change lid if switch broken as well change both.
2. This could be a problem with pump.There is a clog some where between the connector that hooks up to the sink and the other end of the water hose that connects to the washer. Remove the water hose end that connects to the washer and there should be a screen in the end. Either the washer side or the hose side of that connection. This screen protects the water valve from debris that comes through all water pipes and faucets. So as not to allow it to reach the water valve.
This valve is activated by a Solenoid. So either you will find a clogged hose or it has a defective water valve or solenoid.
Let me know,once you check all the above details.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Welcome to FixYa
E2 error means that the lid switch wont engage. You can jump start the lid switch by connecting both the wires with each other or use the third wire to act as jumper between the two. After this if the problem is solved then replacing lid switch is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors
due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program
controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN
pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from
the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the
water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the
voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no
voltage from the controller. This means
the controller is a suspect.
water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the
inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the
inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL
SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level
to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is
most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must
be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for
rinse and wash.
link to replace the inlet valve:
after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come
in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated
so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check
the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the
valve or motor or pump.
