Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Have you checked the operation of the drain pump motor itself to see if that is jammed? Info near the bottom.
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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!

Zanussi aquacycle 1200.After a wash has finished and i empty washing, reload again,it wont start and none of the lights come on.eventially it works ok again after a good 5-10 mins.


you have probably done no harm. try selecting spin and drain again to ensure the water has drained properly.
Machine starting on its own after 5 minutes or so is usually the door lock failing, again not caused by your actions.

My washer is not working it begins to spin stops and has the letters LE appearing.


Hi,

This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

Goodluck..

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

Err 10 message on Fridgidaire front load washer


The E10 error indicates a long fill error meaning the machine thinks it took to long to fill with water.
            We recommend u to check that the drain tube is now stuck to far into the stand pipe and possible causing as siphoning problem, and that the screens on the water valve inlet are cleaned and not slowing the water flow.
             u can hook the drain hose off, forcethe  water through it with a water hose, unclog the stinky mess and  hook it back up again and  work it.. tat woul do..
Plz rate this solution.. thank you..

Quits in cycle and flashes F11 or FdL


From Catriver/fixya, this site.
F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the central control unit and the motor control unit cannot be sent correctly. Possible solutions: Check the harness between the two boards for loose connection. Driver motor, main board or motor control board may be bad. I have come across a number of these with loose connections and bad main boards. Put it into a test by pressing drain/spin on the left side. Then press the spin speed button on the right until no spin is lit. Then press the pre-wash button on the right 4 times until 00 comes up in the display. You are now in the automatic test mode. Let it do it's thing about 15 minutes and see if the error comes again.

The dl means doorlock. (F=fault) These machines are notorious for bad solder joints in the main control board in the door lock circuit. You could have a bad door latch but I doubt it. You can keep trying to start it and sometimes it will work and sometimes not. Remove the top of the washer. It is held on by three screws at the rear of the top. Slide back and lift up.
You will see the control at the top rear of machine. There are two connectors that plug to the board with pink wires. The board will be marked dl1 and dl2 where they plug in. Wiggle these connectors and try the machine again.
If your machine is less then 2 years old the board may still be covered by warranty. Check your owners manual for details.

Drain Cycle doesn't drain right. Have to keep running the cycle to get water out.


sounds liker you have a pump/drain issue. ill assume that the technician removed the bottom acess panel and checked the "button trap" for foreign debris. if that was clear next i would check the hoses themselves, tub to pump hose may have something iin it. perhaps your drain hoseis clogged/ kinked. in some cases ive seen the pump sound as if its working but not pumping anywater out, in which case youll need to replace the pump.THis machine will not achieve high speed spin without draining adequate amount of water first. lastly you NEED to be using an HE detergent( specifically designed for front load washers)
