Either there is a small leakage of current in the display panel or there might be a shortage of supply.in either cases the display looks faulty.try to check the leakage by removing the panel.better be done by a professional.try contacting any technician available.sometimes the problem solves by just switching on and off the machine a couple of times.

What does c.f. means on a letter where you fill personal information? thanks


Hi, I'm not sure if you meant to post this on the washing machine forum, but if you are talking about a business letter, "C.F." generally means "copy forward" (indicating you or the person sending the letter is copying one or more additional recipients on the letter).

Code in digital display does not have a E in front of it


Please let me know if you can get a number after this - if so what number shows up?


Model differences:
• Better models have a digital readout display
• Good models do not have a digital readout display
In the Better Models line, the failure codes will appear in the display as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter
or two letters. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control indicator lights will flash.
Example: E14. To stop the flashing and beeping, the customer may touch the Pause Cancel button. The error code remains
stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not effect the operation of the washer. If the failure is something
that the customer can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate normally the next time it is
started.
In the Good Models line, the control signals the failure code by flashing the five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse,
Final Spin and Control for the first number or letter after the E and the Start indicator light for the second number or letter
after the E. When a failure occurs, the washer stops or pauses and the control beeps and flashes the five indicator lights to tell
the customer that a failure has occurred. To stop the flashing and beeping, the customer may touch the Pause Cancel button.
The error code remains stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not effect the operation of the washer.
If the failure is something that the customer can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate
normally the next time it is started.
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
• All 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.
Please Note the following...... on a small number of washers with serial number prefix XC4,
if the previous procedure does not perform as specified, follow the option below:
• Follow all previous steps but instead of pressing Start and Pause Cancel buttons,
press and hold Options and Pause Cancel buttons.
If the washer is a Better Model, the error code will appear in the display. Troubleshoot problem by using charts on the
following pages.
If the washer is a Good Model, the five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control will flash the
number of times for the first digit of the code and the Start indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit.
Take
separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code.
The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice
indicating the 2 and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START
indicator light start flashing at the same time.
The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code as long as the two buttons are pressed and held.
Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine:
A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15
Example Code F1: the first digit would be 15 and the second digit would be 1. If this code would appear on a washer in the
Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink fifteen times and the START indicator light would blink once.

How do you clean automatic soap dispenser?


Hello Sherri Ortwerth - I located the manual on the Frigidaire website. Here is the manufacturer link and it provides step by steps instructions in how to clean the soap dispenser drawer. If you have difficulties pulling up the requested information, I recommend taking off the last letter of the model number so you can pull up the data.

"Pause" will not give way to the selected cycle


Turn off the machine then unplug it for at least 15 minutes and plug it back. Turn the washer on then press any button and wait for 5 seconds. Press and hold the START/PAUSE and CANCEL buttons simultaneously and the most recent error code will appear on the display as an "E" followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator lights will flash. Post back the error code to determine the problem and necessary actions to be undertaken in order to address it. Include also the exact model number of the machine if the foregoing instructions don't seem to be applicable with your machine.

But accepting the solution should you find it helpful and/or informative will not stop you from posting comments or additional information. You can still communicate with the expert should you need further advice regarding the issue stated herein.

I havbought a new phone that should conntact to Wifi but it asks for SSID - forgot what it is/was how do I find out - is it a number or name as I have written a few notes in my diary. Thank you


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

You have actually posted your 'network' problem to the washing machine forum ;-0) I doubt you will get a satisfactory answer, sorry.I recommend you repost to a suitable forum.

Having said that- if it is your home WIFI you are wanting to connect to, the Broadband supplier will have given that information with the other documentation! The SSID will be something like (supplier name)-LAN-(XXXXXX) followed by 'WPA-PSK:(numbers/letters combination which is a mile long- well actually 26 numbers/letters!!)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

I recently bought a used Maytag Washer. Is there a way to tell the year-model by the serial number or model number?? Thank you for your help---Gordon, at grsll@sbcglobal.net


The age is determined by the last two LETTERS in the Serial Number (the first letter is the YEAR, the second letter is the MONTH). If you post back with the information I can tell you when the washer was manufactured.
