Hi, welcome to Just answer

Customer:

How old is it ?

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

5

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

5 years approx

Customer:

OK, thanks for that....depending on how the lights are arranged: if you count from the top or from the left ...which lights are flashing ?

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

all off them

Customer:

ok

Customer:

please unplug it and plug it back ... simultaneously press and hold the START button

Customer:

let me know which lights are flashing

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

the rinse light on

Customer:

ok rinse light is on and if you count from the top or from the left ...which lights are flashing ?

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

none

Customer:

ok so it just stays on and is not flashing...correct ?

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

yes is flashing

Customer:

what is flashing and what is lit ?

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

the rinse light

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

sorry it mite be the wash light

Customer:

ok and if you number them with 1 on the bottom which lights are flashing or lit ?

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

6

Customer:

it shows 4 lights only here so I believe you mean the 4th light is flashing

Customer:

dont count the door lock light

Customer:

if you have already tried to clean the drain pump filter then the flashing light indicates a motor triac fault

JACUSTOMER-tiitcrcl- :

the washer light was flashing and now four on top are flashing and the pump is working

Customer:

OK it indicates a motor triac fault

Customer:

you will have to check the wiring and then the electronic control module

Customer:

if everything appears fine then the electronic control needs replacement

Customer:

are you willing to repair this yourself ?

Hello, my name is George..

Before doing anything, please disconnect the wires connected to the dryer heater under the lid (making sure you note their position); insulate them to stop them touching anything and try your washer again.. This problem can be caused by a bad dryer element (even when not switched to dryer) and doing this will either cure the problem, or rule out the dryer side as a cause.

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 1 year ago.
The problem is not related to dryer anyways...
