Question about Asko W6461 Front Load Washer

Open Question

Asko W6461 Some programs (normal, quick, hand/wool, rinse) won't start, and machine freezes when start/stop is pressed. Other programs are fine(Sani, Heavy, Normal Plus, Perma Press) start just fine.

As soon as the start/stop button is pressed when one of the problem programs is selected, the machine freezes and no button pressing or knob turning will have any effect on anything at all. Only turning the machine off with the power button, then turning back on, will allow anything to function again. Is there a simple solution for this?

SOURCE: normal, delicate LEDs blink; rotor starts, then stops

OK. Here is the real solution: the dry sensor itself needs to be clean. There is an excess of clothing fiber deposited over the sensor. When you use "sensor dry" the sensor is not detecting humitity flow and it "thinks" that the clothes are dry, therefore it turns the machine off after a minute of operation. The sensor is located on the right side of the plastic grill where the filter is inserted. Stick you head inside the dryer and look down towards the mounting plastic grill and you will see it. You will see 4 holes where the screws are installed to mount the grill. Remove the screws and you will release the sensor. You will see the black and white wires connecting to it when it comes loose. I don't think that it matters where each one is connected, but I did mark them in order to re-install them back to their original connectors. The sensor is made of two metal pieces that run parallel to each other. Disconnect the wires after releasing the sensor. Use a vacuum to clean it. I actually washed it to remove all fiber dust from the surface of the plates and dry it with a hair dryer. Clean it very well so you do have to do it again anytime soon. Re-install the sensor and reset the dryer. This should do the trick... Good Luck!

SOURCE: Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher

have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

Model EWF10843. How do I select diagnostic mode?


Electrolux Diagnostic Mode

* Within 5 seconds of wake up, turn the selector knob to the far left cycle and press and hold Cancel and far left
button under the display simultaneously for 3 seconds to enter the diagnostic mode.




To save time at wake up, the Welcome screen can be bypassed by turning the selector knob.





1. Upon entering diagnostic mode, all lights should flash for 1¼"x2" display models and all lights on for the 1¼" x
4 3/4" display models.
2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water

Try to press the start/stop button for at least 3 seconds. This should reset the started cycle, and you can make a new choice. If this dont help, it could be a faulty control board

Kenmore dishwasher model #665 15872000 is stuck on time saver option for washing and I can't get it to switch to any of the other options such as normal wash


Similar Kenmore Dishwasher 665.18664000. Time saver and Quick rinse were the only programs that would run. I pressed "high temp scrub" then "air dry" then "high temp scrub" then "air dry" and the machine went into a diagnostic mode and counted down from 10 while running a series of tests. After about 10 minutes and various test cycles the machine reset and the "normal wash" light had come back on. If this doesn't work then you may have a problem with the controller which other threads have mentioned replacing yourself for about $120.

Hi there, I have a Euromaid WM5 and suspect it was overloaded as it stopped near the end of the cycle. We turned it off at the power as it wouldn't reset and couldn't get clothes out. It has been off...


I think, that if you want to cancel the program, you have to select correct program on selector knob. When turning the knob observe the display. When correct program is selected, it will show spin speed and temperature.
I have also managed to reset the machine by entering service mode. Turn it off, select Cotton program. While keeping Start/Cancel button pressed, turn it on. It showed E 05, then whole display started blinking. Using the same button it started spinning. After turning it off and on again, the machine was reseted.

Have Error Code E20 - won't drain. How do I approach?



The diagnostic test is used to check individual component function only. TO START THE TEST: • Turn the Program Knob to the start position, Spin Only. • Press Start/Pause to start the cycle and save it. • Press Cancel to stop the cycle and turn off the LEDs. • Press Cancel again to turn on the LEDs. • Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Options and Start/Pause buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons. 1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality. 2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment. 3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment. 4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment. 5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.When the door is opened, the drum light should turn on. 6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble. Once tumbling has started, the Boost Heater (if so equipped) will turn on. 7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The drain pump & door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. 8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code. Exiting Diagnostic Mode There are two options for exiting theDiagnosticTestmode and returning the washer to normal operation: a) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR b) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the start position. Press Options and Start/Pause buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear.

My washer won't start, it keeps flashing ERR and then the wash-time, and then LOC. My roommate says to fix it before, he held down three buttons, but can't remember which ones. Any idea?


Try the following two buttons: press Options and Select together for 10 seconds (or until the LOC disappears). The pair of buttons held for 10 seconds also sets this control lock.

To find out the error code, turn the Program knob to the start position, Spin Only. Press Start/Pause to start the cycle. Press Cancel to stop the cycle and turn off the LEDs. Press Cancel again and within 5 seconds press and hold the Options and Start/Pause buttons until the LEDs start chasing. Then release the buttons. Turn the Program knob seven clicks clockwise from the Start position. The control will signal the last error code. To clear the error, press and hold Options and Start/Pause for 3 seconds. Then either unplug the washer for 5-8 seconds before plugging it back in. Alternatively, press and hold Options and Start/Pause together for a few seconds until the Wash LEDs appear.

http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/frigidaire-electrolux/12950-frigidaire-atf6000es1-wont-drain.html has a link to the service manual for the listed washer (the link is half-way down the page).

I hope this helps.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.
