Code f29 in my book is Door Unlock Error Possible causes/procedure are as follows: 1 door lock mechanism is broken 2. door switch/lock unit failure. a. check door switch/lock unit for foreign objects. b. unplug washer or disconnect power. c. check wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and central control unit (ccu) d. check door switch contacts E the resistance of both door coils between pin 1 and 3 should be approx. 320 ohms... the door can be unlocked manually... to do this you 1. unplug washer. 2 remove the lower kick panel (i think 2 screws on bottom hold it on) 3. Reach up along the inside of the front and locate the bottom of the door switch/lock unit. 4. located on the bottom of the door switch/lock unit is a tear-drop shaped tab. 5. Gently pull the tab down about a 1/4 of an inch or until a click is heard. 6 you should now be able to open the door.

W10158202A Washer shows F29 Error code.What is this and how it can fix?


Could be the machine is not level.
Unplug the machine
Remove the lower panel on the bottom front of the machine (3 number torx screws). There should be a technical information panel giving error codes etc.
You can manually open the door by reaching up and pulling on the door release tab located below the door switch

Code f 29


F29 is a door unlock error, this error occurs after the washer has made 6 attempts to unlock the door. Usually this occurs when the door lock mechanism is broken and/or the door switch/unit lock has failed. To resolve this issue you'll need to check the door switch, door lock mechanism and the wire harness between the central control unit & door switch, replace the part that has gone bad.

When i try to start my washing machine it is giving f29 error


F29 is a Door Latch Unlock error. This occurs after the door attempts to lock 6 times. With no successful lock achieved, the error code will be generated. Check the following:

  1. First, UNPLUG the washer in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that required in order to clear momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, proceed to step 2.
  2. Check the door switch/latch for foreign objects that may have become lodged in the mechanism and may be preventing it from operating.
  3. Check the wiring harness from the CCU to the door latch. The harness can be accessed by removing the washer top panel. Remove the panel by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then off
