SOURCE: F2 error code

Chia, this is not a good one, F2 is a keypad failure or interface mismatch. You can try a couple of things. 1. unplug the washer for a minute and see if the code returns. 2. Remove the consol to access the control board, three screws on the backside and the consol lifts up. On the right side you will see the main board. On the right side of the board, center harness will be the interface ribbon cable. Reseat it a couple of times. If this doesn't work, I believe you will have to replace the touchpad. Catriver.

Here are the steps to unlocking the door manually if clothes are still in the machine.
1.Unplug machine
2.remove bottom panel
3.Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the botttom of the door latch assembly
4.Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear dropped shaped tab
5. Gently pull down on the tab about a 1/4 inch or until a click is heard.
6. You may now open the door.

This code means the door lock mechanism has failed or the central control unit has failed. Replace the door lock mech. first. This should fix the problem. (before replacing anything make sure there is no obstruction around the switch or in the switch.) After the machine has been unplugged it may fix itself. if not replace door lock mech.

"Ld" indicates Long Drain: Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on.
depends on the following factors:
1-> the drain pipe could be longer than 8 feet
2-> the drain hose could clogged or kinked
3-> the pressure hose connection from the tub to the machine motor control could be pinched or plugged?
4-> and finally the pump might not be running well.

If you need any sort of help with the disassembling of machine tell me the exact model number and i can provide with some internal diagrams.Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution, also do post comments in case of further doubts.

What does it mean when it flashes LE on the display?


Hi, if you are getting a LE error code from your LG Washing machine, there are a couple of reasons why the error code would be displayed.

The main cause for this error code is because you used too much or the wrong kind of detergent in your washer. This code is set off by too much suds in the washer. Not only will this set off the alarm code, but it may also cause your washer to leak and even start to have a bad smell from the dampness getting where it should not be.

To remedy your problem if you do get this code you must first just let your washer sit for a half hour or so to let the suds disperse. Unplug the washer to erase the code and also to make sure it does not run. Then plug the washer back in and press the power button. Then press the spin button until the no spin/drain only cycle is selected. When all of the water is drained from the washing machine, remove all of the clothing and run a rinse and spin cycle to remove the excess soap from the washer. Then you can finish washing the clothing, but do not add any more soap.

Always make sure that you use the proper amount of detergent and use detergents that are low sudsing.

Other causes for this code can be a large load on a gentile wash cycle. This will cause a miscommunication to the motor. If this happens, lighten the load, reset, and restart the washing machine.

Just plain overloading the washing machine can also cause this error code. The motor will get too hot trying to handle the large load and cause the fault code. If this happens, unplug the washing machine and wait thirty minutes before attempting to wash again.

If you get this code immediately on the start up of a new washing machine, it is best to try to just reset the machine. Unplug the machine and hold the start/pause button in for five seconds. Then plug the machine back in and restart the washing machine

Take care

Error code ''suds'' on maytag front loading washer


Press Chime and Extra rinse keys for three seconds or until the control beeps. You are now in service mode and your machine should say a new error code. Depending on what that code is, you might be able to reset your machine by unplugging it, and replugging it in. if your codes are now clear, try running machine on spin only or rinse cycle. DO NOT add more soap!!! If this corrects your problem, try running a load with out soap. You may have a lot of extra soap in your machine.

LG WM14225fd will not spin and le code


The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code.
(Load Error) can be an unbalanced load. Or, excessive use of soap causing too much suds, which can drag on the inner tub. Add only 1 tablespoon of HE soap max. per load.
Or maybe your Hall sensor died the part number is 6501KW2001A

Whirlpool Calypso stops at 26 minutes and throws ob code


first you need to clean your washer
run the washer with no clothes; add 1 cup vinegar, that will cut the soap residue from the hoses do this on hot wash hot rinse

then when you wash your next load of clothes; fill the tub about 1/4 full, add the soap, turn the agitator to disolve the soap, then add the clothes

this problem happens also if you are using too much soap or a heavy duty soap such as Tide.

I keep getting a 5d error code on my machine. What is this?


This is actually a SD code meaning to many suds. The machine will drain out mid-cycle when you push stop. You can then start the load over without adding any additional soap. Make sure you use the recommended amount of HE soap.

Soap in LG


Hello, to answer your question, it depends. Are you using liquid detergent or powder? How dirty are your clothes? How bulky are your clothes?
For average size clothes and normal dirt I use about a cup of powder. If the clothes are dirty and/or bulky I just hit the "water plus" button. These machines are so efficient you don't want too much soap, just add water.
If your using liquid make sure it's approved for front load washers and use it sparingly. The most I have put in is about half up on the dispensing cup in the washer. Remember to remove this if your using powder. Any more questions just ask. Good luck.
