I have the same problem with the same washing machine: Simpson Encore 806. I followed the instructions suggested above. I bought the part suggested (temperature sensor) replaced it, screws back, turned machine on and error message still shows. There must another meaning for dF message.

SOURCE: machine will not stop filling with water

Does machine stop filling if you discnnect from power? If it does, the problem lies with timer/control unit, or fault in pressure switch/ tube. Check pressure tube (thin rubber pipe that goes from water level selctor switch to side of outer bowl) for holes- replace if faulty. You can test pressure switch by remove pressure tube from outer bowl and blowing thru tube- you should hear the water level switch click when you blow, and then click again when you release pressure.   If it keeps filling even with power off, you have a faulty inlet valve. If you remove top panel (3 screws along top rear-power off first!!), you will see the inlet valves- one for hot, one for cold. The valve is the thing the inlet hoses screw onto. New valves availble from any good spare parts supplier, relatively inexpensive part. Good luck!!

SOURCE: simpson 705 washing machine shakes on spin dry

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you hav removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

SOURCE: simpson encore 605 won't start

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi, my simpson eziset 950 when filling with water doesn't stop filling when the cycle starts. Water overflows all through the washing cycle. When I turn the tap of it stops filling.


there is a small tube running from the bottom of the tub up to a pressure switch in the control panel that is set by what ever wash level you want
when the pressure in that tube exceeds the pressure set by the knob it does 2 things
it turns off the inlet water solenoid to stop water coming in and then starts the wash cycle
as it is starting the wash cycle , it indicates that the stop solenoid for the water inlet is either still getting power or the stop valve is faulty
try replacing that water control valve first

I had the same problem before, but removing the kink in drain hose does the trick. Maybe yours is more complicated but try it.

Simpson encore 605


Sounds like a motor transmission problem.190.00 parts and labor is not a bad price.
Check if there is a warranty with the new parts the service person is installing.

SIMPSON 816 ENCORE WASHING MACHINE ERROR MESSAGE


Hello

Try running the washer through rinse/spin cycle,then normal cycle without any detergent.

SF is suds failure,or too much detergent or wrong type of detergent.You need to use H E type detergent.

This should clear the machine out.

Hi, our simpson enduro 701 washing machine does not spin back and forward in the deep rinse cycle. but operates ok and spins in spin cycle. thankyou Tina.


Hi Tina just read your posting. From the information in your posting the machine fills, then when the machine is full of water the agitator moves clockwise then anticlockwise until it gets to the rinse cycle then drains the water ,then it fills for the rinse cycle but does not move the agitator in the rinse cycle.Then it drains and spins the clothes dry .Is this assessment of your posting correct.If it is not 100% correct please reply to tell me what the machine is doing or not doing.If it is correct then the problem with your machine is the control board.Is your model the electronic one with the push buttons?Looking forward to your reply.

Frigidaire washing machine gets stuck on cycles


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.
