It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

C0500 error code DI151 machine


Sir/Mam to reset power off the machine. Wait ten seconds, then turn on the machine with the clear/stop Button held down. Power off the machine, wait ten seconds and then power on the machine. If the code comes back you need a new fusing unit.

Code 56


You have a faulty main board, my advice to you is buy an good old machine with crook seals, pull it to pieces and you have a bag of spare parts. Replace the old electronic control module with the one you pulled to bits. Not much goes wrong other pumps and solenoids.

As soon as the machine is on an error message of 3E appears and the machine stops


3E - MOTOR RESTRICTION ERROR
Hall Senior is sensed every 5OOms. 1 second after motor starts to work.

If data of hall sensor is less than 2 (2RPM), the Washing motor will stop at once.

During Washing and Rinsing when a motor restriction is sensed, the motor stops and then proceeds to the next water -flow action. If the motor stops working and this happens in one direction ten times, "3E" Error is displayed.

During dehydrating. when a motor restriction is sensed. the motor stops working and then returns to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing cycle. After ten times, "3E" Error is displayed, When the motor Is told to stop because of an operating function. no error is shown.

Power 81W OFF can clear the motor restriction error.

Solis Palazzo - dreaded ventilate problem


Hi
Your machine is still in the descale mode. You haven't finished. If you have run the descaler through, the water is ermpty the pump will still keep going until it stop on its own. If it doesn't stop on its own, the computer thinks its still in the descale mode. remove the water tank and turn the machine back on. The pump will run and then make a lot of noise, then stop. This can take up to 5 minutes. Let it run until it stops. You will get blinking lights on the panel. Put the water tank back on and close the steam knob then open it again. The pump will start the rinse mode. Let it stop on its own. Computer can't see that you ran a whole tank of water, but it can see when the flow meter stops that there is no water left. If you have already rinsed the machine start the pump flowing and just lift the tank off. When the pumps stops the rinse cycle the descale light will be gone but you will have the heater light blinking and the water light steady. Put the tank back on and close the steam valve then open it again. This will clear the water light and the machine will start to heat again.
