Error code F01 indicates a short circuit motor triac, this is part of the electronics that control the motor.
What you need to check first of all is the motor.
Remove back panel, undo 2 screws that secure motor, unplug motor lead, and lever motor backwards out of the brackets, don't let go of motor.
Check to see if motor has brushes fitted, if it has , check for shorted brushes and wear,if less than 2-3 mm, then replace.
If after replacing brushes and it still shows F01, then chances are it has blown the pcb, could be expensive, especially if you need to replace the motor.
If no brushes, then pcb is probably faulty.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

    F01 is as I stated previously a short circuit motor triac. it is part of electronics in the pcb.

    You will not neccesserily see any sign of a short

    or blown board.

My machine show a 01 and a flashing key I try to do hold a button for 5 sec to deactivate but time tab it's not reacting with at is the prob


Your washer is in the "child lock" mode, hence it won't allow any program. Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. If nothing is pressed within 10 seconds.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display. Once you see that in the display, press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display. Finally by pressing the start/pause button the key symbol should disappear - confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

Pl click if helped.

During the washing circle the machine stops and F3 appears in the time window and machine cant restart


If F3 is flashing, then you are having a problem with drainage.
Check that there is no object stuck in the drain hose outlet. Check that the pump is not blocked by foreign objects and clean the pump. Check that there are no kinks in the drain hose.
After making these corrections, run the drain program or press the key button (door open) to empty the machine.

Unable to use washer due to key logo 'flashing'. Have checked the plug at bottom right of machine no blockage there.


Hi,
Please try this
the key and flashing = child lock.

close washing machine door, turn to normal setting, press the power switch and keep pressing for several seconds. The symbol should disappear and the beeping should stop.

Washer will not start...indicator lights are on. We have unplugged and tried to start by pressing "cotton/sturdy" and the start/pause. Cannot change settings


Do you hear a double beep sound when depressing any of the other buttons? If so you most likely have a defective key panel. If nothing happens at all, it may be the home control board (inside the control panel). Before you replace the board, try this diagnostics test,
Press and hold the hand wash key and the heavy soil keys for 3 seconds. The display should go to "00" next press the spin only key and the machine should run a quick spin test. When this completes press the "off" key to exit service mode.
Now try the machine, and hopefully you have cleared it's software glitch.
Good luck to you!!

Washer- lights go on, but it won't click/lock to start the load s


it is probably the door lock asm itself but lets try the diagnostic mode. Usually on the newer duets when the lock quits you get a quick series of beeps upon pressing start.
On the old style (red leds, no teardrop) set drain/spin cycle, no spin option press prewash 4 times quickly
new models (green leds, teardrop front) the old way may also work but will only start factory test, no code display. instead with unit off, select any one option key, press and hold 4 secs, release 4 secs and repeat till all lights come on (3 or 4 times) then it will flash any f codes, press that same key again to advance to the next code if any (most recent code first) then it will go to display software versions (n:xx etc)
when it shows C:00 the door should lock at C:01 it will fill with cold water this is the factory test routine it will advance automatically. some steps may take a while but should complete them all and turn off. we are of course interested in if it locks here and advances. a F code may still get displayed.
