Re: f 13 error message

Rocky, the F13 has to do with the dispenser motor. It's unable to move to it's home position. You will need to remove the top by removing the 3 torx screws in back. Slide it off toward the back. Check the linkage from the dispenser motor to the top of the dispenser. Check the harness from the dispenser motor to the central control unit. Reseat if necessary. At the main board in back, third harness from the left is the dispenser switch/motor. Wires read 6-5-3-1 from left to right. Ohm out the switch, test points 6 to 5 should read 0 ohms. The motor 3 to 1 should read 1400 ohms. Catriver.

I have an error f13 could you help me?

Generally the F13 code refers to a water inlet problem, I would get the inlet manifold valve checked, or stating the obvious, is the water turned on and make sure there is no restriction in the hose behind the machine.

Wdd960 f13 error code

you could have a problem with the fill valve,shut the water supply off,remove the hoses from the back of washer and mark them so you put them back the same way,stick the hoses into the washer or a bucket and turn the water on,if water comes out of hoses you'll know it's the washer and not the house water valve.if water comes out look into the washer valve where the hoses connect,if you see alot of junk on the screens change the water valve.i want to tell you that i haven't worked on this machine yet,i looked up your error code and it sounds like you're having water issues from what i've read,there's a tech sheet in the washer sometimes down near the bottom cover or taped onto the side wall,it will have all the error codes and tell you how to run the machine in a diagnostics mode to check everything in it,also next time you write in send the full model number off of the machine you're having problems with so whoever is trying to help you can look up your machine,usually you open the door and look around the opening where the door closes in and you should see a tag with the model and serial numbers.hope this helps,best thing to do is find the tech sheet and run it in diagnostics

F13 error during drying cycle

Hi, that indicates that either the fan motor is not working/ blocked or the dryer thermistor (thermostatic sensor) is playing up. Of course, the pcb reads the sensor so it could also be that causing the error.
