Starts cycle then stops and display flashes
Start a wash cycle and I hear water coming in and then it stops and the display starts flashing. Changed settings to Cold water only and no water enters tub and the display starts flashing. After flashing for a few seconds it stops and repeats the same sequence. The door locks at start and hitting the pause will not release it or stop the cycle.
Check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.
That's not it at all with mine. Just put new inlet valve in last summer. Went through diagnostic test and it works fine but when I try to wash on any cycle, washer stops and display starts to flash. I think maybe Kenmore is just junk.
