Question about Hotpoint WF645 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hotpoint acquiarius WF645

My machine has the word 'test' on the display and I can't get it out of this mode, or get the door to unlock. There is already a similar problem posted on this site for another model, but on the wf645 the start and the cancel are both on the same button. I have tried cancelling, turning off the power, every combination of buttons that I i can think of .

Tip

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


Hi.

If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


Regards.

Ginko.

I have a whirlpool electric dryer Model No. GEW9200 and lights come on, it appears to be sensing moisture content, but the drum won't turn


The cause of the problem is either a blown thermal fuse, a faulty belt switch (loose or worn out belt), a faulty door switch, or a faulty machine control board. Activate the "Diagnostic Test Mode" to determine which you should check first to avoid unnecessary disassembly of the machine.

Diagnostic Test Mode Activation Procedure
  1. Unplug the machine for fifteen minutes.
  2. Make sure the machine stays in standby mode when it is plugged back. That is, no indicator light is on.
  3. Press the following button sequence within five seconds: More time>Less time>More time>Less time
  4. All of the indicators on the console should light on and "88" is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display panel. It means no fault is detected and the belt switch is faulty or the belt is worn. Replace whichever is necessary to be replaced.
  • If E1 or E2 flashes on the display, the thermistor has failed and the thermal fuse is open. Replace both.
  • If E3 flashes on the display, there is a fault in the machine control board. Check the board for loose connections or replace it.
  • Open and close the door. There should be a "beep" everytime the door is closed and opened and "OE" is displayed whenever the door is opened. The door switch is faulty if no "beep" is heard or if "OE" is displayed even when the door is closed. Check the wiring harness connection or replace the door switch assembly.
Please inform me about the result of the test to give you the exact repair/replacement procedure.

Whirlpool Fron Load washer. Can not unlock door.


There is a manual way to unlock door. I copyed this from the tech sheet.
Manually Unlocking the
Door Lock System
1. Unplug the power cord from
the outlet.
2. Remove the lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of
the front and locate the bottom
of the door switch/lock unit.
4. Located on the bottom of the
door switch/lock unit is a
tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about
a ¼” or until a click is heard.
6. The door may be opened.

Also there is a test procedure you can run to check the door lock actuator.
DIAGNOSTIC TEST
The washer must be empty and
the control must be in the OFF
state before pressing the
touchpad sequence to start the
test.
Starting the Test Mode
 Close the door.
 Push CONTROL/ON (if present on
this model).
 Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle.
 Select NO SPIN by pressing the
SPIN SPEED touchpad.
 Push PREWASH OPTION four
times
within five seconds. (If
PREWASH OPTION is not present
on this model, press RINSE HOLD
four times within five seconds.)
C:00 will light up on the display.

Hope this helps.

Maytag MAF1300AAW Error code 4. The machine starts to fill then drains which is repeated several times before eror code 4 appears.


Hi this searstechtoo I did some research on similar american models and will paste what I found for you.
Will Not Lock
• Door not all the way closed or not properly
aligned. Possible laundry load is too large to
close door.
• Place washer into Service Mode and check for
diagnostic codes 4 &18.
• Perform Board Output Test. Check door lock
system.
• Check electrical connections at lock switch
assembly and machine control board (CN2).
Cn2 is a thermistor used in a wax motor to control the lock and unlock feature of the door.
I would start at the lock and trace the wires then unplug and replug them.
Thanks SearsTechToo

Cycle runs normally but the washer does not stop after spin


I don't know specifically about your machine but I think the problem is with the door lock. Again, on most machines with a shakeout it can go on and on until the door unlocks. Does your machine have a door UNLOCKING solenoid or does the door lock just lose power at the end of the cycle. It may be that you just have a very weak solenoid to unlock the door.
