It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.In this case the flow being low it can be fault of the inlet valve or the inlet filter.

If the water flows then the flow 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.

Finally 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.

Make sure 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.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open, but first

**The door typically won't unlock as a result of the unit failing to drain due to a pump or filter obstruction, excessive suds, but the pump failing can cause this as well**

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs...safety first**

This is generalized info regarding most front load washers which differ from other models. I believe it will resolve the issue with yours.

Start by following this guide for accessing and cleaning the pump filter...


The next step is as follows,


That should resolve the problem, As I also alluded to before there is a small possibility the pump itself is faulty, but not likely.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance or if any of this is unclear.

When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

Check out this tip I wrote about the noise and vibration that front loadwashers can make..

That is a contact to ground , either on inlet valve connector or on wiring harness. If it is not that it can be a bad timer board, but that is really unusual in this case.

The circuit boards of these machines are not repaired, they are replaced, so only the engineering diagrams would exist and the factory would have them only.. As far as parts go we have no way to resource parts, we are STRICTLY a technical advice site. We are USA based so Have no way to find where you can buy parts in your home country from California USA.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If it is carrying out the wash and rinse cycles OK it sounds very much like the belt could be slipping. Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
If it turns out to be the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished.
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C
