    this did not work. i do not have a rinse hold button, so i am assuming you mean the extra rinse button. i tried several variations from what you were saying and nothing seemed to do what you said, in accordance to your c08, etc. the LED works fine, it is just when i push start it turns the machine OFF instead of starting the cycle. maybe this will help. thanks for your reply.

Turns out mine had a bad electronic board. It was covered under warranty but took them over two months to get the part becasue it was backordered. That was about six months ago and it has worked fine since then although it's extremly noisy and shakes a lot in the spin cycle. Much more that my previous standard washer ever thought about.

Electronic panel freezes!


In reference to Kenmore washers in general:
Most washer's can be reset like a personal computer.
If the appliance does not accept inputs from the control panel, follow the Hard Reset steps below to reset the control:
  • Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  • Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  • Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  • Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.
Note: If the Hard Reset does not work, there may be an internal failure with the appliance, that requires service

I have code fh


Hey Lukec,

The FH error code on your Kenmore Elite washer indicats that there is a problem with in-coming water flow. When the water feeding the washer is less than what it should be, the FH code will trigger and the washer will shut down.

You can check a couple of common problems that can manifest this error code after resetting the machine. Steps for reset and diagnostics can be found below.

  1. Using the "Pause/Cancel" button on the washer control panel (this button will be below the digital time clock, to the lower right of the wash cycle selector) by pressing the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle.
  2. Next, unplug the washer from the wall socket (this will reset the error code).
  3. Several things you can do to troubleshoot the follow issue are these:

    Check for kinks in the water supply hose.

    Turn off the water supply (hot and cold) and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Check the port screens at the hose connections for sediment buildup and clean as necessary.
  4. Reconnect the water supply hoses to the washer and turn on the water supply.
  5. Plug the washer cord back into the wall outlet.Select the wash cycle and press the "Start" button.
If the error code returns, you will likely have internal water flow issues due to the pump or other internal problems which may require a service technician.

Hope this helps.

Asko washer W6324. Ran two loads with no problems. These used the SANI setting (wish I could control the water temp by temp settings and not fabric descriptions). New load of delicates. I set it to woolen...


Try to press the start/stop button for at least 3 seconds. This should reset the started cycle, and you can make a new choice. If this dont help, it could be a faulty control board

Duet whirpool washing machine stop and DLF sign appear


Hi,
Initially unplug the washing machine.While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for five seconds.
Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the DL code is cleared.

If you still face the problem then follow the procedure:

Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause].
This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum.

Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Hope this helps.

Control locked light is on and washer won't turn on. Can press "Control On" and Cancel/Pause buttons at the same time to get the power on but won't start.


Looking at the manual of my Whirlpool front loader gives me the following advice...

CONTROL WON’T ACCEPT SELECTIONS
1. Press PAUSE/CANCEL button on the touch-pad twice.
2. Drain the unit, then check that the drain hose and drain
pump filter are clear of foreign objects.
3. Check the touch-pad/LED assembly by selecting different
cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to
confirm the touch-pad/LED is responding.
4. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
5. Check harness connections.
6. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
7. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any
cycle
BTW: The full manual is at http://www.servicematters.com/docs/wiring/Tech%20Sheet%20-%208182208.pdf

The machine will start a cycle normally, but after the timer reaches a certain point it stops counting down and the machine will continue to agitate until you force it to stop.


Thank you for verifying the model type so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A questions in this forum machine specific topic area.

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

You will need the Service Manual for support. I’m an owner like you with a solid repair skills on the machine and will try to help you DIY the repair if we can ID the issue through troubleshooting.

Do you have this condition in all wash cycles? Will a Quick Wash cycle complete? Do you see the Cycle Status LED ever indicate the machine has moved to the Spin Cycle during the wash cycle? This could be a Control Board failure but we need to troubleshoot.

I want to make sure the Wash basket will spin up with a Spin Only cycle selection. Can you select a Spin Only cycle with a empty wash basket. I would release the washer top so you can observe this test. I want to rule out a broken Clutch large wrap spring.

Page 33 of the Service Manual will show you how to release the washer top from the base. In Spin Only cycle raise the top just enough to make sure the wash basket is rotating Counter Clock Wise – CCW with the Spin Only cycle selected and operated.

If the above test doesn’t indicate an issue I would like you to try the Quick Service Cycle test on page 15 of the Service Manual and see if your FAV6800A will pass that test with no clothes in the washer. When you put the machine in Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys until the machine beeps and the LED display reads 00. Then press Wash/Rinse Temp to start Quick Service Cycle test. Did the test complete with a PA indication in the display? It will only display the PA code for a few seconds. End of cycle will beep washer will unlock and Cycle Status LED will indicate complete.

Waiting for your reply….Rich

Washer will not start on any cycle. Any position


It may be the lid switch? If the lid isn't shut, then on most models the machine won't start.

Anymore queries, please post and I will try to help you.
