    So frustrating. I've had my machine for 4-5 years and spent over $1000 for it expecting it to last longer. About every 5th load I get this problem, usually when it is a lighter load. It won't complete a spin cycle. 11 mins remaining and I still have soaking wet clothes. HELP!

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley hub to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 3.5 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!

I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium and heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.

Samsung VRT error code dc


dc means clog in the filter. look to the lower left front of the washer for the filter door. Take off the door and pull out the short hose. Empty the water from the hose, this could be lots of water be prepared. Then pull out the filter on the right by twisting counter clockwise and rinse the filter. Put it back together and the error should go away

-I have a Daewoo washing machine DW F1251S with OE error code. What doesthis mean?


Possible this is relative of a poor drain time which means a clogged draining pump and system. So it si best to remove and clean the drain pump/filter and reset.
check if the machine drain hose is connected to a outlet which is not clogged when the water is flushed out . Also the washing machine must be slightly tilted to drain to the pump to reduce the drain timing.
Finally check if the machine was overloaded to produce a strain on the motor so as to give an error. If so shut down remove plug remove load , check if the agitator is jammed and reset.

Good Morning Sir/Ma'am, We own an LG WM2233HW with an "error code of OE" which means "Drain hose is bent or clogged" and/or "The drain filter is clogged". I have checked both. I straightened the drain hose...


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

What does error code F-21 mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F21 means long drain, this error occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. To resolve this check the drain hose and make sure it is not kinked with any foreign particles; also clean the drain pump filter for any clogs. Also check if the pump is running fine. If still the issue is not resolved after all this then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Maytag neptune toploader won't finish cycle code dc. What does dc mean?


If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.

What does error num. F02 mean?


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

In MOST cases, this simply means you have something clogged in the drain pump and the pump requires cleaning. However, if the pump becomes damaged and no longer pumps at the correct volume, the error code will reappear. In this case, the drain pump will require replacement.

If you perform these steps and can't get the error code to clear, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Error Code OE and Door will not unlock


error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.try running the spin cycle alone till the water empties completely.If the problem still continues it means that the pump is clogged where you cant reach, since you've tested with the drain hose.

E10 code


I believe E10 means there is a draining problem. Check your drain hose and see if that is where it should be and not clogged. If that is okay, most likely your pump is clogged.
