This machine was spinning with an uneven load and stopped working so I emptied the machine and took it apart. I found the shock absorber on the tub needed to be put back together so I fixed that problem...

The error E68 means the ccu has sensed a stuck button on the console. MANY times this is a false error and means that either the ccu or interface must be replaced, but SOMETIMES, there really is a stuck button. TRy to run a diagnostic using the instructions I have provided below, let me know if you need any help with it.
1. Press and hold Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to reset the control. The buzzer will sound
1 time and "rES" will be shown briefly in the display.
2. Immediately after, rotate cycle selector knob 5 turns counter-clockwise to the second position from the bottom.
Press and hold the Options and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds. The control will enter test mode,
the buzzer will sound 3 times and all LED's will rapidly flash.
After entering the test mode, the cycle selector knob can now be rotated to select the following tests:
Rotate the cycle selector knob clockwise from the starting position:
0 turns: All LED's will flash.
1 turn: Drive motor runs; heat source is on. Drying LED is lit. "H" and the control thermistor reading will toggle
back and forth in the display.
2 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Cool Down LED is lit and "AF" (Air Fluff) is displayed.
3 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Drying and Cool Down LED's are lit and numbers appear in the
display showing moisture sensor readings. Opening the door (press in on door switch plunger) and placing
a finger on the both moisture sense bars at the same time will make the numbers decrease. In controls that
do not have a digit display, the More Dry LED should be ON. Opening the door (press in on door switch
plunger) and placing a finger on the both moisture sense bars at the same time will make the Damp LED
come on.
4 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off.
Key test:
a. When the Temperature key is pressed, all the temperature LED's should light.
b. When the Dryness key is pressed, all the dryness level LED's should light.
c. When the Options or Select key is pressed, all the Option LED's should light.
d. When the Start/Pause key is pressed, all the cycle status LED's should light.
e. When the Cancel key is pressed, all the cycle status LED's should light.
5 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is off. Cool Down LED is lit. Control thermistor reading is displayed.
6 turns: Drive motor runs; heat source is on. Drying LED is lit. Control thermistor reading is displayed.
7-11 turns: All LED's will flash
To EXIT test mode, press and hold the Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds or disconnect power
from dryer. Dryer will be reset for regular operation.
If you cant even enter this mode at all, your interface will have to be replaced. There is no way to determine whether its the intrface OR ccu, but in my experience, it's usualy the interface that ends up needing replacement. Here is the part to order.

My fisher and paykel top loading q washing machine won't start. It beeps and lights 5 and 8 come on. Any ideas what the issue might be?

That is fault code 9 machine not sized
9. (00001000) Size Switch Error
The Display size switch setting does not match that which is stored in memory.
Action GW Machines: Reselect the size of the machine by using the SIZE SETTING
To set the size switch, turn the power on at the power point and off at
the console. Press and hold Wash Temperature Setting Up then
press Power. SmartDrive will give 4 short beeps and the pattern of
LEDs will change.
One of the following buttons needs to be pushed to lock the size into
• Press Wash Temperature Setting Up, the Cold LED is on for 5.5kg
(560mm wide).
• Press Water Level Up, the Low Water LED is on for 6.5kg / 7.0kg
(600mm wide).
• Press Spin Speed Up, the Spin Hold LED is on for 7.5 / 8.0kg
(650mm wide).
• Press Power to confirm the setting and also exit this mode.
Action IW Machines: To access Size Setting Mode, push and hold the Fabric Care button
and then press the Power button to enter Size Setting mode. Select
the correct size on the display by pushing the Adjust button to
highlight the correct size. Size setting is then achieved by pressing
the Power button. Powering off will set the size into the memory.
Note: Fault code 9 will only be logged into the memory of IW machines. GW and MW
machines can display this fault but it will not be recorded.

My Frigidaire GLFT294OES3 turns on, but after a few seconds, it goes to "No Spin" and errors out. The water won't come through and it just shuts off, please help!!!

To recall an error code,

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds

Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously

Ail LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed.

A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

You may also have a code such as E47 or E24 etc..

Comme back with the code and I will explain what is the meaning of the code

We pulled our stacked washer out from the wall to service the cold water hose filter on the back of the unit. when we pushed it back into it's location the washer won't start, won't fill...

I know you don't want to hear this, but either you did something to the hose filter or you didn't get it plugged back in correctly.

If you banged the water inlet valve in moving it back, it might be damaged.

Suggest you unplug everything and start over.

Washer won't start. Power is on, pressed power, then pressed permanent press, then water temp, then start. There is a red light on spin cycle and it just beeps and doesn't start.

Hi - if that red led light comes on as you press start - then the display module is faulty - however it's not always the case - often its the motor controller module thats faulty..

Your call - display module first and hope it works or controller.

The manufacturers recommended procedure is to replace the display module (primary) if it still doesnt work then replace the control module (secondary).

Everytime i put my washing on it goes onto test mode. I reset it so it is back to the on screen and then evertime i press a cycle it goes back onto test mode. Ho9w can i get it out of test mode and back to...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You will have to look at the manufacturer's plate, probably on the back of the machine to find the appropriate date then-
Date code 39, March 2005
Press start/cancel until ALL LEDS are lit
Press both start/cancel AND on/off together until 'dOFF' is displayed

Date code 39, March 2005 to date code 42, June 2005
Press the cancel button and the machine should return to normal

Date code 43, July 2005 onwards
Press both start/cancel AND on/off TOGETHER with top left option button until 'dOFF' is displayed.
Good luck,
John C

The machine doesn't start! The led pause/start is blikkering green or yellow, but I can't get the machine working

1) Ensure the dishwasher is turned off. 2) (may not apply) Turn the plastic blue lever located under the sink to the vertical position (this opens the valve, so water can go into the dishwasher) 3) Pour powder indo the dishwasher 4) Turn the dishwasher controller to the top position (the 12 o?clock position) ? this is the eco-setting. 5) Press the on/power button on the dishwasher, so that it now turned on (a light will display) 6) Move the dishwasher controller to the ?R? position (it?s on the very left), and leave it there a second or two. 7) Move the dishwasher controller back to the eco-setting (the 12 o?clock position).

Error Message

I called the Hotpoint helpline and the solution to this problem was simple:

I had to press and hold the start/cancel button until all the lights on the display flashed
then I had to press and hold the start/cancel button along with the on/off button together at the same time, until the word "dOFF" was displayed... the msachine then functioned as normal.

Easy when you know how!
