Bauknecht WA 8988 washing machine. Error code F7 appears near the beginning of any cycle after initial drain and during water fill. The drain cycle appears to work and empties the machine. No Drum movement ... is this a main motor fault? thanks in anticipation

    I have the same problem. My Bauknecht is wae8985. Last time this fault appered new motor was installed, and the time before that, the brushes was changed. This mean that it was'nt the brushes, and it also means that it couldn't have been the motor. The repair-guy said it was "a known problem", and quickly installed a new motor after ordering it from somewhere abroad. It took four weeks of shipment. As I now've got the same error again, shortly after, it's easy to think it was'nt the motor either. The most irritating is that it is completly impossible to find a list that shows what the errors means on the Internet. The different repair-guys that looked at my machine, seems to just take a guess of what the error means. Why is it so hard for Bauknecht to give out the codes?? Anyways: I've experienced that it is better to look at Whirpool's sites at the Internet, as Whirlpool seems to have some licenses to be the (re)seller for Bauknecht in some countries. Good luck to you, I also wish myself good luck: Every week I read the commersials for new washing machines, as the one I have is a big dissapointment, all though we payed a lot for it. This only shows that expencive machines not neccessary is better. Quality does'nt follow the price.

Model 11026955690. Why does screen indicate LP?


I am not familiar with any error code referencing "LP". Could you be seeing "LF"?
Below are the error codes listed for your washer:
  • "LF" (Long Fill) Inlet hoses are kinked or clogged or water valve screens are not clear. (Solution: Straighten inlet hoses or clear screens of any foreign material.)
  • "LD" (Long Drain) Drain hose is kinked or clogged. (Solution: Straighten or unclog hose.)
  • "FF" (Fill Failure) Problem with water level sensing system. (Solution: Call for service.)
  • "OL" (Open Lid) Lid Is open during drain or spin. (Solution: Close lid.)
  • "PF" (Power Failure) Power to washer went off during cycle. (Solution: Press any pad to clear the display. Restart the washer from the beginning of the cycle.)

Water does not drain


Is the drain line clear? Also sounds like time on water inlet is running to long. Front loaders don't use that much water.

During a normal wash cycle, the error code FH occurs. The owners manual says inlet problem. All water pressure is good and inlet screens are clear. Drain function appears to work well. Repair guy came...


If the flow meter does not register 10 and 1/2 gallons of water in 8 minutes the FH code appears.
Could be a bad flow meter, sensor, wiring harness is loose or a bad CCU Central Control Unit.
At the RINSE cycle if water enters the machine you must time the water fill for 8 minutes or less.
If water does not enter the machine suspect the CCU as bad.

H F code during wash cycle


the "HF" code is initiated when the water turbine(counter) sees an excess amount of water to fill the machine to the prescribed level- many things can cause this problem,however simply throwing components at the machine will not necessarily fix it. here is what i have run across on at least 3 occasions; the w/l switch tubing(air tube) is supported by a small retainer that establishes the tubes routing toward the side of the machine near the cabinet- if the hose falls out of this retainer,it is allowed to dangle in the danger zone near the spinning pulley/belt- the belt contacts the hose and wears a thin spot in the tube just enough the machine to fill and begin to wash initially, but air escapes slowly and machine goes back into fill mode,eventually the water counter sends feedback to the controller that it has filled with an axcessive amount of water and defaults to the "HF" condition. the cure is simple-replace the rubber tube and secure it along the side of the machine away from the moving components. its certainly worth checking out.

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Will not hold water during initial cycle


The drain hose needs to be lifted above the high fill level in washer.The easiest way to fix this is take the drain hose (if your drain hose starts from the bottom of machine and goes up)tie or strap it to the back of the washer so it cant sag or drop down and start syphoning the water.Remember the washer will drain out the water if the drain hose is lower than the amount of water in the tub.Thats why your making sure by tieing the drain hose to the highest point before it makes it way to the drain .
