Hi,
It means that there is a fault in the heating circuit and the heater is not working

The listed site deals with this problem so take a look and if you are fully capable of testing, follow the troubleshooting instructions but always double check that the unit is unplugged or disconnected from the electrical supply.

And remember kindergarten rule #1 "If in doubt, don't" with everything that is potentially dangerous. Electricity kills so a service repair bill may be a better solution.

Hope this helps.
jenni.

There is a filter on the drain pump. You should clean it out and see if that is the problem. You can take the bottom panel off the front if this is a front loading machine. If not you need to lay the washer down so that you can see the bottom. Be ready for lots of water! The drain plug is large and it unscrews.

Hi....f 13 is flashing on the machine and a red spanner symbol is on all the time, also unable to open machine even after draining it manually... thanks for any help you can offer.


You did not say what machine you have!
F 13 I have is a dispenser circuit error and the causes/procedures are
1 Unplug the washer or disconnect power
2 Check the mechanical linkage from the motor to the top of the dispenser
3 Check the wire harness to the dispenser motor and the central control unit
4 Check the dispenser motor for powered rotations

Replace faulty components

If there is a spanner symbol lit it means you need to call a repairman.
