Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Our front loader Blanco washing machine gets to the rinse cycle and stops. After the lights blink for a couple of minutes the door will then open. The washing machine is then frozen until we reset it by holding the start/pause button for a few seconds. How can we get it to finish the cycle?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If it still has water in it I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.

Whirlpool Front Loader WFS1071BW, rinse cycle problem


I had exactly the same problem with the same machine... I've seen a few people on various forums with the same problem. The problem on mine turned out to be just the EMI filter located next to the power cord inlet. I just bypassed it for now until I can get a replacement.

Hello. I have an LG intellowasher front loader wd-8015c which has finished its cycle but the door will not open.... how can I get it to manually open? I have tried doing another rinse cycle and pumped out...


If you've waited the normal time for the interlock to allow the door to open and it's still locked, the interlock switch itself is probably faulty. Tricky job. Best to find a repair technician........Nomess
