Why are error codes F01, F06 and E2 showing up?

sounds like its not loading water.. this normally occurs if either your pump filter is obstructed or the inlet pipes filters are..TURN OFF THE POWER SURPLY then turn your water off at the stop valves and get the.. hold a small bolw under the joints when doing this as there will be some water in the pipes. with the pump filter id need to know the model to tell you where there filter is located, if your machine has a small panel at the bottom left of the front then its fairly easy if not the pump is at the back.
Click open the front panel you will see a knob similar to that on a mircowave,, turn this gently anticlockwise. ONLYT TURN IT SLOWLY as water will flow out, using a small bowl drain the water out. it will take a few bowl fulls to do this.. when your sure all the water is out fully remove the filter.. and run under a tap to clean of any lint etc, Before replacing put your finger in the outlet you will feel a small fan like device just move it slightly it should rotate freely.. (if not then the pump is jammed or burnt out) when replacing the filter double check for any dirt give it a rub with a sopf cloth and screw back in.. make sure it is in tightly..

machine will not go into spin cycle and or drain

Mine was not draining the water out, so popped off the panel at front and checked the filter on the bottom right side, make sure you've plenty of towels down as it will let all of the water out of the drum! Unscrew the cover and check what's inside, I found several coins, matted hair and a plastic clothes tag.
Tried to spin the towels I used and my machine was back to full working order again. It's worth a try before you spend any money on parts!!

water doesnt drain,It keeps giving an error, and it makes a strange humming sound.


Sounds like your drain pump has seized.
Ensure all water is drained from machine. This is not as easy as it sounds if full!!!

You may have to open door and bail most of it out. When this is done, pull out machine (two people needed) then tip the machine up 45 degrees. have a bowl and plenty of towels handy. Slowly open the drain pump filter, located behind the front plynth, and catch as much water as you can in a bowl. When water flow has stopped fully open the filer body and you will probably find a coin lodged in the pump impeller blades.

Hope this helps
