Same question, exactly what is happening to me, it is skipping

This answer was rated:

Same question, exactly what is happening to me, it is skipping the steaming. It also does the same with the blinking blue light. And also happened AFTER a cleaning with vinegar cycle. I don't know about where and how to clean the sensors.

Not sure what you are talking about (same thing happening to me )

I only get to see your question .

May I get your units Model number to better assist you?

Sorry, I had read a prior similar problem.

Model LRF4001RY

After I "cleaned" the system with vinegar, it stop working correctly. Now after it starts, it does not "steam" like it used to, and the blue light begins flashing.

What can I do? is there a solution that I can try?

Thanks you



Whom is the manufacture?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Whirlpoor fabric Refreshener

Ok you can try running another vinagar cycle .

I suspect that the last cycle loosened deposits and now it is clogged. Hopefully that will break them up so it will work.

But Unfortunatly this is considered as a disposable unit .

There are not even replacement part available
