    This is a Toshiba Model No. AW-D2001S washing machine, 9.5 kg, top loading, made in 1999

    I don't think it has a heater, it's a cold water washer, only uses 535 watts, so doubt it has a heater. The error code of E61 comes on after a couple minutes of beginning to fill with water and then stops. Only a quart or so of water. To drain that water out, when setting the cycle for drain and spin, it starts draining the water and then stops, showing the error code E66, taking several trys of start and stop before finally getting that little water out. During both these cycles there is no action from the motor, but this maybe because there wasn't enough time into the cycle for the motor to kick in. I've checked the motor and it looks in good condition no opens or shorts in the windings. The drain and spin cycle never gets to the spin as its only on for about a minute before it stops with the error code on the control panel. The Toshiba service man just came and took one look and said the machine is to old (8yrs) and you can't get parts from Toshiba anymore, never even opened the top to look at it. It seems the younger technician just want to replace new parts and want you to buy a new machine if those aren't available any more instead of trying to see what exactly the problem is and if can be fixed with replacing components. That is what I'm hoping to find out by this error code message which may pin-point the problem. Can you find out what these codes mean? The machine is in very good condition, everything looking almost new.

Can you tell me what make this machine is? As it sounds like a heater problem??

Posted on Dec 28, 2008

    Ok its sounds like you have more than one problem!! The first sounds like a heating problem or that the machine is over filling with water! When the machine starts to spin does all the water get drained out?

  • Kris Seymour Dec 28, 2008

    Hi, I think you could be a little confused! Your machine is yes a cold fill but it will require a heater to heat the water for the washing powder to activate and remove the dirt... I will have a look at toshiba web site and try and get some information on your parts. I would not be surprised that the parts could be obsolete as 8 years old is now old for a washing machine..

Can you tell me what error code E12 is on a Bosch vision 300 washer?


I am not quit sure if my answer will help you, but I am going to tell you the cycle

The unit fills to whatever water level you choose to use
.
After reaching the water level the the wash begins, after 20 or 30 minutes of washing it needs to drain the soapy water. The drain pump turn on draining the water, after draining the unit fill back up to the settings and or sprays water while doing the draining and spinning to remove as much dirty water as possible from the first wash. After the first draining, fills back up again for the final rinse and the final drain

The symptom you are describing, here tell me, that issue is with the drain valve, drain hose, the sewer, or is a big possibility that there is is a sock or woman garment stuck in inside holding the rotor causing the water not drain inside the water valve, if the sensors are not sensing the opening of the pressure switch after the first fill. it will not continue This units lately has been added many sensors the only thing this unit doesn't has is the ability to speak but if using common sense you can get to the part that needs to be replace. You need to read and understand the wash cycle first.

Started filling, made a loud noise, stopped filling immediately, door wouldn't open. I tried everything to get it to open. Running the spin cycle finally got the door open at the end of the cycle, though...


The washer drain the water if you put on spin. all electronically controlled washer won't unlock the door and or spin if there's water inside the water has to be drained out first.If the basket didn't move(no motor movement) and it finished the cycle, POSSIBLE problem is the motor control board.

Agitater wont stop at start of cycle maytag mvwc6esww


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

In the begining of was the water won't stop filling, it overflows and it won't go to the wash cycle (adjetate) however I can turn it to the rinse cycle and it will drained and spins?


Possible that the water level sensor has failed.Shut down washer and trace the sensor which is a pressure activated switch from the drum overflow. the switch can be activated by blowing and checking continuity. if so replace the unit

Beginning of wash cycle starts agitating instead of filling w/water.


the water pressure/level switch contacts are welded together,usually the load selector switch for the amount of water lets it fill to a determined water level and the water level creates pressure in a tube from the tub to this switch and stops water fill and starts the wash agitation cycle,replace this switch inside the control panel

It has an F1 error code. It will start the water flow for about 2 seconds. Stops and beeps f1 on the screen. I hit the stop button and start again and have to repeat this 3 times before the wash machine...


The manufacturer has issued a remedy for the F-1. What you do is empty the machine of water and unplug it. Open the control panel and remove the pressure hose. Blow out the hose to remove sediment . Re secure it to the control and retry. No parts needed. F-1 Error infothemobilian_1223.jpg

My frigidaire front load washer will start a wash, complete the first cycle but then stop and flash all the lights and beep continously until I press "start" or "cancel". If I press "start" again it just...


Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should 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. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

Washer starts to fill then stops /now warsher wont wash


I too was having the same problem and I almost paid to have it repaired, which would have cost a few hundred dollars, thanfully I called the recall line after reading some of the other post on here and my machine was elgible for a upgraded on the control panel so didn' t cost anything for us. Sears told us that the F1 code is a miscommunication in the control panel, basically the machine is confused and don't know what to do so it stops and gives that code. Hope it helps!
