the F code is a puwer outige. This is how to fix
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call
This is what an HF code is.
"FH" (Water Inlet Problem--no water or insufficient water
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.
Check the following:
Are water faucets completely turned on?
Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?

Are water inlet hoses frozen?
Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press

Motor Tachometer Error
The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws
under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up
the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will
make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.
Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Thanks for using FixYa. Error code LD means Long Drain. It flashes when washer takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets.
Error code CA means Average current limit. This error code will display if the load of clothes is more then the normal load. Also if current limit breaches then status signal comes back from the motor controller. The unit will return to standby mode and display CA. Average current trip occurs if the current draw at the motor windings is greater than 5.55 amps in 2 seconds. This error occurs if there is a problem with the drive motor, thermal protector or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

f35 code indicates a pressure switch problem. Try unplugging unit for 2 minutes.Plug back in and test.If F35 reappears,check hose from tub to pressure switch
