Question about Fisher and Paykel IWL12 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My simpson ezi sensor front load model swf 10761 won't start. The door lock light keeps blinking.

The washing machine has power and water going to it. But when you try to start the machine the door lock light blinks and it won't start. The door closes and appears to latch closed just fine.

This can happen so easily, my cat knocked a button, and the lock message came on and it seemed could not use washing machine. Easy fix though, look at bottom of program buttons, find the lock buttons (numbered 3 and 4 instruction manual)which have lock symbol (numbered 9)bracketed down the bottom, hold these two buttons(3 & 4) together for a few seconds. You will hear a beep, then see unlock appear in the door lock section. Fixed and ready to again wash.

Look for the 2 buttons on your that have a lock symbol.  Pushing & hold both for 3 seconds.  This toggles the child proof mode.

SOURCE: lid lock stays on and constant beep on excellence washing machine

I am having the same issue and hope someone can post a solution. I have found a work around though. Mine does it when it is on a 'Regular' wash cycle, I found that if I put it on Permanent Press it works fine.

SOURCE: Our washing machine was stopping at various stages

Although the machine itself is balanced, it sounds like the drum isn't. Since it's not held in place with belts, it has a tendency to float some and on occasion, it will become unbalanced. You will notice it more often on lighter loads than heavy because the extra weight of the clothes is enough to seat the drum well enough to run. It's the lighter loads when you will notice an issue. What I've done is to physically lift the drum slightly and shake it around in all directions. After letting it come to a rest in the center, it should balance and run correctly for all loads.

Disconnect the washer for few minutes (5min) then connect it again and press cancel, before you start any cycle, good luck

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

Simpson Ezi Sensor Front Loader keeps pausing during washes, doesn't put through the detergent.

you might be putting the detergent in the wrong part of the dispenser,or you might have the hose on the wrong way,or the water valve has failed. Read up on your user manual to see what happens on this part of the cycle,does the w/m empty ,then try and bring in more water?? The main give away to this fault is,detergent still in the dispenser.Check all your filters on your inlet hose and water valves.
You have to ask yourself what has changed,cheers.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Although you say it's level I would recommend you try my method to make absolutely certain before considering something inside.
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

(If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a 5.5kg Simpson Ezi Sensor SWT552 Washing Machine. The lid locked light keeps flashing and the machine keeps beeping during the spin cycle - even though the lid it down properly. Could you please...

yes the safty door latch switch is eather loose or going bad. somewhere on your door there is a small sensor or switch that tells the washer the door is closed and its ok to spin, these washers put out alot of force when spinning and thats why the sensor is there it would be dangerous without them. when the washer goes in spin cycle there is more vibration than any other cycle. and thats whats making the sensor or switch wiggle and its getting an intermedate signal. it probily needs replaced these can commonly go bad due to wear buy slamming the door on the washer.. i hope this helps
