Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

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.

The first problem was it wouldn't drain/spin. Now it won't start a cycle at all. When I press the start button once, it beeps. The start light flashes and the wash, rinse and final spin lights come on. When I press the start button again, it sounds like the door lock engages, but the start light begins flashing and nothing happens. What could be the problem(s)?

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!

It is probably a clogged pump (don't look in owners manual for info - curiously it isn't in there - just says call tech - bolocks!)

Remove 2 screw on front bottom panel.
Remove cover.
Plastic boot and pump are on right had side. Clean out - and use the change to buy a drink - celebrating the fact you didn't have to spend hundreds on a tech!

SOURCE: Door Lock LED flashing

The solution from testy helped me but I decided to change it.

I cut the plastic latch away from the end of the interlock,just the little bar that holds the door closed.This means that the lock position doesn't affect the door.

I then used the little piece of plastic to act as 2 packing pieces to hold the lock half closed. This works fine.

Don't push the lock fully closed or it doesn't work

I've had this happen before. Try unplugging it and leaving it unplugged for about five minutes. Plug in and try again.

I have a Whirlpool Cbrio top load washer. it won't start it's cycle. Once it senses the load, the lock lid light flashes and it does nothing. can this be fixed?


I would say that the lock has failed. Either the lock itself or maybe the pin or latch that fits into it when you close the door may have cracked / broken. If the machine thinks the door / lid is still open, it wont let you start it.

Hoover nextra washing machine door wont lock / cycle start


sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

It won't start. The panel lights up, but nothing


Either the door switch or timers is faulty. I would test with ohmmeter, voltmeter, or a multi-tester that has both.

Push start different sound water may start may not start pause


I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.
