HttpClient PostAsync doesn't return anything

I have a PostAsync that doesn't return anything and doesn't continue code execution afterwards. I get no error but nothing happens when it reaches PostAsync. My code:

        public async System.Threading.Tasks.Task<HttpResponseMessage> LoginAsync(string name, string name2, int sourceid)
            var client = InitiateHttpClient("");
            var json = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(new
                name = name,
                name2 = name2,
                sourceid = sourceid,
            var data = new StringContent(json, Encoding.UTF8, "application/json");
            var response = await client.PostAsync("myRequestUri", data).ConfigureAwait(false);
            return response;

            HttpResponseMessage httpResponseMessage = await login.LoginAsync(Text1, Text2, Source);


After several seconds (possibly 1-2 minutes) I get Exception Unhandled
System.Threading.Tasks.TaskCanceledException: 'The operation was canceled.'

    Try to check your web service with Postman. Will it get the expected response when using Postman to send the same post request?
    If your InitiateHttpClient has instantiated a correct HttpClient then your code should work if the parameters match with the backend service.
    So we could use Postman to test the connection of the backend service and we also need to check the validation of the parameters in Xamarin.
