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

I have an AC unit with the model # PDH12K3SD-C the unit stops working and flashes an error cod = "06" anyone know what the error code means?

According to the Owner's Manual if the Error Code flashes "06" the O.D. coil Temperature > 175 Deg
F for 2 consecutive minutes. (Heat Pump models only).

The action taken by the unit is Alternate flash set point and error code. Shut unit down for 5 minutes, then try again 2 times, if fails the 3rd time, then shut down unit.:

All of this is can caused by several things:

• Dirty filters
• Dirty coil
• Fan motor failure
• Restricted air flow
• Improper refrigerant charge
• Restriction in refrigerant circuit

The dirty filters, dirty coil and restricted air flow you can troubleshoot and solve yourself. The reaming ones should be handled by a an authorized service technician.

Here's a link to your Owners Manual, that you can download and print for future reference.

Hope this helped to to troubleshoot and solve the problem . Please let me know. Thanks.

Dell 926.... the printer will not acknowledge that a new cartridge has been put in. It will not work. previously had the error code 1203, a short circuit in print head. That has now disappeared. Help...

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad...

1 - try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
2 - when error shows up, shut the printers power off; wait one minute and turn it back on press copy.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
