The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

What is the brand name and model of your dishwasher? Different manufacturers can quite often use the same error codes for different faults.

Washing machine displays an LF error code. Started last week during whitest whites cycle in rinse. I cancelled and just did rinse to finish my load. All other cycles worked and yesterday all started...


LF = Long Fill

LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
Is water supply connected and turned on?
Are hose screens plugged?
Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.

Bosch Vision 800 Series front loading washer. Flashing "water level is too high". We are not getting any water into machine at all. Is there a way to reset?


We had this same problem last night, although we had just purchased this washer 'new' (bought it at Sears, display model, and it's 9 months old but had not been used). We didn't even get the correct user's manual with it, but after running one cycle without laundry the message went away.

Hoover hpe 236. water not draining, stops mid cycle, lights flash


Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Hope this is of some help to you.

Error light flashing - wash & drying lights flashing.


My machine would not always set properly and various lights went on and off without reason or stayed flickering. I phoned Hotpoint as like you my warranty was finished. They told me to switch off the machine and unplug at the mains. Leave for 10 minutes then plug back in and switch on. It re-booted the control panel and last night I was able to set it properly. If it doesnt work for you I suggest you phone Hotpoint customer service (number of website) and ask if there is anything else you can do to solve the problem yourself before you pay for another service call. Failing that buy a new one!!

Just bought a new cuisinart coffee maker and no book came with it. I need to know how to program the coffee maker.


Hi,

  1. Setting the time
  • When the machine is plugged in, the screen will display 12:00.
  • Press and hold the "HR" and "MIN" button until the numbers flash.
  • Then press the "HR and "MIN" button to scroll through the numbers. When the numbers stop flashing, the time has been set.
CAUTION! When you pass the number 12, the letters "PM" appear to indicate the time between 12 noon and 12 midnight. When these letters do not appear, the time corresponds to the morning hours, from midnight to noon. Always make sure the hour is set according to the correct period so that programming is correct.
  • 2 Programming the start time
  • Press and hold the "PROG" button. The numbers and the indicator light flash.
  • Press "HR" and "MIN" in the same way to set the hour to the desired start time for the cycle. When the numbers stop flashing, the programmed time is set.
CAUTION! Programming the start time is not possible when the coffee maker is running.

Hope this will help you.

Best regards
/Mirran
