Question about Washing Machines
Machine starts in normal way, rinses powder from fist tray, starts cycle, but as soon as cycle 2 supposed to be started, machine stops with error 08E- "increase in water temperature is is below parameter set". Powder still remains in tray 2 dry .
What should I check first? PS: When selecting modes in manual, e.g. "pre-wash", "main wash", "rinse"- everything works OK. Water is heated up and so on. Error appears on the screen on automatic mode at the moment when program has to jump to another step of cycle. Seems to be program error?

I have a hotpoint aquarius washer/drier. I don't know if this will solve your problem but I know with mine, this almost always happens, the only way I can get it to start is by firmly pushing the door a few times around where the lock is, once I hear a little click inside it will start ok. I presume its because it wont start as it isn't registering that the door is closed, the only time it does not do this is if I literally slam the door really hard. Hope this helps you!

They are trying to make money off you!!!!!!! LIQUID!!!! Dont ever!!! use powder soap in your front loader. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and then gets into the bearings of the washer and eats them away! This caused about a 450 dollar repair for your repairman. Never use powder soap.

Don't put the powder in the tray. Select you wash cycle, let the water run into the washing machine, then add the powder.The powder should dissolve before you put your clothes inside the machine. Let the washing machine fill up to almost half way and add clothes. This should stop the clothes from getting the residue powder on it.

There should be an adjustable "barrier" in the drawer. One for liquid and one for powder. Open the drawer and look at it carefully, you may need a flashlight. See where you pour the powder in? Well... you know what they say about pictures and a thousand words...
Since I don't have your model number, yours will probably look different than this pic,, but it should be close enough. All you have to do is set the barrier to the "Powder" setting.

use liquid detergent, less clothes, larger load size, or put the powder in first and let water fill up. u may want to mix up with your hand or like i do give a twist to the washing device to mix up better. but i did find this the problem when i used generic detergent for they go a little cheaper on the ingrediants try brand name like tide, or gain. cheaper not always better but i find these two work well for me and have a lasting scent.

Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.
Has a large load size been used with a gentle wash setting?
Gentle wash cycles such as Perm Press, Delicates, Hand Wash, and Wool/Silk should only be used for smaller loads. Because the cycles are more gentle while tumbling and spinning, too many items in the drum can register as an issue with the motor. In this instance reset the unit and run a test rinse and spin cycle.
Has the washer been overloaded?
Single bulky items or large loads can add extra weight to the drum and place stress on the motor. Remove some of the clothing and restart. If the issue is still present after a few items have been removed, unplug the washer for 30 minutes to allow the motor to cool and then restart the cycle.
