Re: Error 5

Error 5 refers to the temperature sensor.
On my machine the wire to it had broken at the spade connector connecting to the sensor.
You can access it easily by removing the back panel, the sensor is at the bottom of the drum with one white wire coming from it. I replaced the connector with a sleeved 1/4" spade connector bought from Halfords.
The wire is of poor quality so try to support it so vibrations dont cause the cable to fracture again

What does f3 flashing mean?

F3 error code means your washer has not drained. To fix the washing machine error code is simple and straight forward. Simply remove the drain pump filter and slide the filter out and clean the debris inside. The filter in most cases is on the lower bottom panel. Simple depress the tab and fold the access door down. The washer drain pump filter is a white handle twist the handle to remove the filter. You may also find an article of clothing trapped down where the filter is like socks or change etc. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations Thanks Rick

Kenmore Oasis Washer won't drain. "Ld" code during


Error code LD means long drain. This error appears when the washer takes more than 5 minutes to pump out the water till point where pressure switch resets. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. Hope this helps... Please post back for more information.

What does LF mean on my washer?

Hello there:
It is possible your line or tube that goes through the fabric softener dispenser is partially obstructed, giving the LF error which means it is taking too long to fill. I would try cleaning out all of the dispenser lines, and if that does not fix things then you may need to replace the inlet valve assembly which may not be working correctly. or you may want to make sure that your hoses are not all tangled up and are clear of any debris in the screens of the hoses

What does 5d mean?

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters ofwater and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.

Possible Causes/Procedure
If too much detergent was used:
Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure
switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any Cycle.

Hoover washer model VHD9143ZD

Have the same problem. Have just looked in the service manual, it reads: Error 9 - Cancel the programme by returning the selector to the OFF position. Select again the programme and press the START/PAUSE button to switch the machine back on.

We recall having this problem with a previous Hoover washing machine and it was solved by cleaning the filter. The service manual recommends you clean the filter once a month. The procedure is as follows:
1) Open the flap

2) Only available on certain models: Pullout the corrugated hose, remove the stopper and drain the water into a container.

3) Before removing the filter, place absorbent towel below the filter cap to collect the small amount of water likely to be inside the pump.

4) Turn the filter anti-clockwise until it stops in the vertical position. Remove and clean.

5) After cleaning, replace the filter and lock by tightening the filter screw. Then follow all procedures described above in reverse order.

Hope that helps :)
