It is probably either the post that engages the switch is broken or out of alignment or the switch is knocked out of whack or is broken. Check it by inserting a small flathead in the slot and push in while the unit is on spin cycle (unless you want a mess to clean up) and see if it works then.

My indiset washing machine says f06 and all lights r flashing an door wont open it had already stoped an then done this

the fault is that the pump isnt emptying the water fro the drum, its possibly blocked with a coin or some such, open the bottom front panel, some have just a little door about 4 inch square, others you have to remove the little panel at the base which runs along the front. Then open the pump, it looks like a knob about 2.5inch in diametre, unscrew it and pull it out, it may take a bit of jiggling. Bewqre as all of the wster in the drum will flow out of here so you need to catch it, i usually use a large black ssck and let it in to it, clean the cover and put it back in. power off your machine for a fee minutes and then power it back on again and this should solve your problem

My whirpool locked light keeps flashing and wont wash


The light is flashing due to the door lock error. The door lock is activated as the machine experienced an error or was stopped in middle of a cycle. Or the door was being pulled while the machine was running a cycle. Try unplugging your washer and restart the washer to check if you are still getting the same blinking light. If error is still not resolved then start the rinse/spin cycle & stop the cycle, now press and hold the cancel button for 5-10 seconds. However, if you are still not able to get the door open then you'll need to open the door manually by disassembling the washer.
Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Machine Stoped at the begining of spin cycle

The door switch or its actuator is not making contact. This is assuming that the other cycles work properly. Basically it thinks the door is open and it will not spin.

Copier Machine stoped to print and copy

Open the right side door and check the transfer/separation corona unit. It may be a broken corona wire, and make sure corona unit is sitting properly.
