When the program is pressed to start then the inlet valve must open and allow the water to come to the drum. if this is not happening then check the voltage to the inlet valve, if there is no voltage then the program controller is not outputting and so defective.
If not the inlet filter/valve is clogged and will need a back flush .

Why won't my washer start a cycle? Start button LED just flashes. All other lights are steady. Door lock sounds like it engaged, but nothing happens.


There should be a way to enter the washing machine into service mode to view an error code. Check your user manual and then you should have your answer!

1) since you do not have any error code, because you do not mentione, we must shure you have problem with the switch door, test for open or defective and replace, Test the wires loose, or broken wires.

If the door does not lock at this point it probably needs door lock replacing

Machine won't start and clicks if turned on with door open


 
Ok, this is the fix:


No payload. Close the door. Press off, then press on. Then enter a program starting by selecting the fabric and the others as usual. Do not press start, instead press the slip button to advance the programme to the very last phase, ie drain and empty. Then press start. It will perform this operation with no load and pump out the “no water”. This part takes 5 minutes. After the 5 mins the programme will end and the machine will beep annoyingly, but the computer will be reset and you can clear the program and use the machine as normal.


Why?


I had the same problem. The stupid computer inside remembers the program whilst it’s off and unplugged. What has happened is you accidently pressed start and start again to pause it in very quick succession. This confuses the computer and it thinks that a program is in progress. This is why it wants to close the door. There is no problem with the latch (unless it is a separate problem). You have to let it play out a program to reset it, which is why you can play the very last “drain” segment.


Question.


Presumably there’s a way to reset the computer either by a secret button combo or shorting out two pins from the computer box. I don’t know. If someone knows this please tell me.


Good Luck!

Check the water level pressure chamber for a partial blockage, this can cause all sorts of problems.
