I've got a Whirlpool wtw4900bw0, a lot of tabs open, and a lot of confusion.
Basically, I tried to do a load of laundry last night, and it just refuses to start. I press 'start', and it goes through the lock test and the first sensing stage, and then it does the blinking lock thing.
I tracked down the blink code information [not that much different from reading the check engine light codes on a slightly older car], and I think I got F2E1 and F7E1.
I cleared the codes, and ran automatic test mode. It seemed to complete successfully, although it did release the door lock while the drum was still spinning.
I checked the codes again. No codes.
But, it's still doing the sensing/blinking lock thing.
So I check codes again, and get what I assume is F7E1 again. The other code is gone, so that may have been my fault.
I say 'I assume' because I could be wrong about what Sensing-Rinse-Spin-Done then just Done means.
I am not sure how to proceed from here, though.
