Error code F01 indicates a short circuit moTor triac.
This is part of the electronics that control the motor, it can be caused by worn brushes in the motor or a faulty pcb .
to check the motor brushes, remove the rear panel,, remove the belt and undo 2 screws that secure motor, lever motor back with a screwdriver or similar, unplug the motor leads , and remove the motor.
You will see the brushes at the armature end.
remove and inspect, you should see if they have shorted by discolouration of the armature.
If you clean the armature with emery paper and it looks o/k, then you can try fitting new brushes, but there is no guarantee that it will work,as the pcb may have shorted.
This being the case then it could be quite expensive to put right.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Replaced CCU, Sears washer still will not run


Suggestion: Unplug washer from mains. Open up the machine, disconnect and refit all connectors with wires one by one. Could be some loose connection somewhere. Also helps in the long run

Long spin cycle of my Samsung WF8590NHM Front Load Washer is always interrupted and throws this flashing "5d" error code.


Hi.

The error code is not 5D but SD, which means slow drain detected.

Check drain hose. Check drain filter attached to the pump. Check pump itself and pressure switch.

Regards.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE washer error code F2


The error code must be cleared first to make the machine back into operation. You have to press the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the error on the display.

The only filter the machine has is the one you removed to clean the pump. When the error is cleared, you can check the pump whether it is operating properly or not by running the diagnostic test.

Diagnostic Test Mode Procedure

  1. Close the door.
  2. Select the DRAIN/SPIN.
  3. Select NO SPIN by pressing the SPIN SELECT button.
  4. Press RINSE/HOLD or PREWASH OPTION button four times within five seconds.
  5. "C:00" will show on the display indicating that the door is locked and the diagnostic test starts.
  6. Press the button you pressed in step 4 above two times. "C:01" will show on the display and the machine starts to fill.
  7. Press PAUSE/CANCEL button two times when there's enough water inside the tub to stop the test.
  8. Observe the water level falls as the pump starts draining the water. Replace the pump if the water inside the tub does not drain. You have removed and cleaned the pump so you can easily replace it too.
Please inform me about the result of the diagnostic test and if you still need any assistance regarding this problem.

NEC washing machine won't spin. Letters OE flashing


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

a power glitch can cause this promblem first push pause cancel twice to clear this error code then try the washer on drain spin and listen for the pump to come on if it does then clear the machine by pause cancle twice then try to start again if code resets then the promblem is most likely the ccu or the board but try clearing the error first if that dont work get back with me and we will run diagnostic mode
