F01 is indicating a short circuit motor triac, this is part of the control that controls the main motor. You have no option but to call Hotpoint (indesit) and book an engineer as it is something you can't do youself..Sorry , but that is your course of action.only
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

NEXXT 300 FRONT LOAD WASHER SHOWS CODE E-01. DOOR WILL NOT OPEN AND THE HOW TO VIDEOS ARE ALL FOR MACHINES WITH COMPLETELY ROUND DOORS, THIS MACHINE DOOR HAS LARGE PORT HOLE IN A SORT OF THUMB SHAPED DOOR....


Have you tried powering off/disconnecting the power cord to the wall? Then try plugging it in and turning it on - it may revert to the default "unlocked door" state.
If the door is still locked there is generally a manual release that is accessed from a panel that you need to remove below the door lock mechanism. On my model I had to prop up the front of the washer to access the screws - the panel runs the full width of the washer in my case. Once the panel is removed you should find a plastic rod hanging down from the lock that you pull down on - and then open the door at the same time.
My door lock mechanism went bad on my Bosch washer and I had to replace it - but it did give me a warning (though I wasn't sure what was going on at first). My washer makes a loud noise when locking/unlocking the door - that's the solenoid engaging/dis-engaging. In my case it started making that noise more than just once - first a couple of times, then 3 or 4, then finally about 8 times before it gave up the ghost a week or so later.
There are a bunch of videos online that are generic in nature about how to replace that door locks on front load washers... but essentially you need to remove the retaining spring/wire that is holding the rubber seal onto the washer opening, then peel the rubber seal away from the washer to allow access to the door lock mechanism. Replace and reverse the process.

My stanley electric presssure washer does nothing when push on botton there is the right power in wall plug- i have had it for year and half -


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the bottom of the unit, after this test the door lock-switch assembly. If the door lock-switch is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Washer. door lock wont lock. I hear a click click, like it's locked, but the indicator lock light is not on, then a couple seconds later I hear another click click like it's unlocking and then...


the actual door lock switch inside the wall of your washer where the door clips in has most likely burnt out or a piece has broken out of it i have found the only way to fix this problem is to replace the door lock switch

Washing machine wont drain the water out. it wont even make a noise when it goes into the spin cycle


If it doesnt make any sound your door switch is probably bad. If you can hear a motor humming under the bottom its probably a direct drive and the rubber coupling is broke to the pump there is a 5/16 screw holding a flat spring clamp that holds the pump to the motor. These clips can be a pain but just look closely how they come off and you will not have any trouble. But you may have two different problems the spin cycle wont kick in if the door switch is not showing the door closed.(lid) and there is also a motor switch that kicks the motor into high gear but if its not moving at all its probably the door switch. hope this helps

Whirlpool Duet washer will not start . Hear a clicking noise then receive DL F fault


The clicking sound is coming from the door lock/switch assembly trying to lock the door but it cannot. After six trials, the error code "FdL" shows up on the display. Press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear it.

The only way to fix the problem is by replacing the door lock/switch assembly with part numer 8181700 and costs about $40-$55. Some vendors listed it as part number 1094190 or PS972231. Below is the replacement procedure.

Door Lock/Switch Replacement Procedure
  1. Unplug the machine and open the door.
  2. Stretch the retainer spring of the seal boot retaining hoop then remove it. The seal boot is the gray rubber around the door opening. The retaining spring is located at the bottom of the door opening. The door lock/switch assembly is located on the right side of the door opening.
  3. Ease the part of the seal boot off the lip of the door opening near the door lock/switch assembly. Remove enough of the seal boot to gain access to the door lock/switch assembly behind the front panel of the washer. Be careful not to tear the seal boot because it will cause water to leak from the tub.
  4. Remove the three screws securing the door lock/switch assembly to the front panel.
  5. Lift the door lock/switch assembly and pull it away from the front panel then pull it out of the machine.
  6. Disconnect the wiring harness connector and connect the new door lock/switch assembly.
  7. Reinstall the new door lock/switch assembly and the seal boot in reverse order of the procedure above.

The door on my whirlpool duet washer won't lock


Sounds like door switch is bad. Look at inside front panel of door, get model number, search on internet for "error codes" with that model number. It should show "DL" door lock defective, not secured, failure. One sure way (in most cases) is to push in on door and hold it firmly closed,it is works,bad door switch. To replace, order new switch, take the whole front panel (front assembly including door) off, switch on back side of panel. DO NOT TAKE DOOR HINGE LOOSE. Replace switch. By the way, before taking apart, UNPLUG FROM WALL.

After six failed attempts by your machine to lock the door F22 flashes.
Causes & Procedure:
Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
Door switch or door unit failure.

1 Unplug / disconnect washer.
2 Check door switch lock unit.
3 Check wire harness connections to door switch/lock unit & the
Central Control Unit (CCU)

Fault 22
Push the door to make sure it is locked firmly (try some WD40 on the door mechanism on machine, not on door, to ease out any lock jam & try the door open/close with the power off the wall) I'm giving you tips to avoid the so-called techs zooming for your wallet.

Fault 28
The communication between the CCU & the MCU (motor control
unit cannot be sent correctly.

1 Unplug washer / Disconnect power
2 Check wire harness connection to the MCU, the motor & CCU
Check communication of the CCU board within the housing.
Make sure all grounding switches are engaged.
3 Check the drive system for any worn or failed components
4 Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted
upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the
MCU connectors.
5 Verify CCU operation by running the Diagnostic Test or any
cycle after plugging in.
Will try getting back re the door lock. Desperate i know, so am i.
