avast firewall is not free service, so if you had trial or something, that could be the reason why firewall doesn't work. 

If you payed for avast firewall service, make sure subscription is not expired. To enable/disable avast firewall, go to Tools > Firewall. 

One last question, are you talking about firewall inside avast or about Windows Firewall?
