What does error code F7 E1 mean on a whirlpool VMW washing machine


This code indicates a motor speed sensing error, the motor can not achieve the correct speed for the cycle selection.
Have the shipping bolts been removed?
This error code indicates that the motor is having difficulty turning.
All four (4) shipping bolts and the plastic spacers must be removed from the rear of the washer before you operate it. Each unit is shipped from the factory with four bolts, which are designed to secure the washer during shipping. Failure to remove all of the shipping bolts, and the four plastic spacers that are with them, can result in noise, vibration or error codes. See your Installation Instructions for details on how to remove the shipping bolts.

Were you washing a very large load?
The washer may be overloaded for the cycle you are running. Remove a few items from the load. See the Cycle Guide in the Use and Care guide for loading suggestions for each cycle.
To remove the error display, press Power once. Then press Power again to restart the washer.
If pressing Power does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.

Moving/Shipping bolt re-installation for Frigidaire Front loading washer Mod # GLTF2070DS0 Serial XC40623490 instructions and tips as well as suggestions. Is this really needed, unit will be in storage...


Hello,
yes it sure is a good idea to have the shipping bolts in place to move it they tend to bounce around and could damage something if not secured...also a tip would be if it will be stored where very warm sure as storage places generally are it would be a real good idea to pour about a gallon of water in tub since their is always water their to keep seals wet to prevent dry rot and if stored where hot that water may eveperate so add some to keep it moist and the seals wont dry rot

I recently moved and the movers removed two bolts from the back of the machine...should I replace those bolts


No do not replace the shipping bolts. I assume you have a front loading washer. The tub is secured by bolts during transport. Then they have to be removed so that the washer will operate properly without damaging the machine.

Many machine manuals are available online. For example, LG washers manuals are available at their site and under more information for models sold by Home Depot (http://www.homedepot.com/Appliances-Laundry-Clothing-Care-Washers-Front-Load-Washers/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xr5Zbv6h/h_d2/Navigation?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&omni=c_Front%20Load%20Washers). The LG front loading washers use 4 bolts with retainers. If they are not removed, the machine will have severe vibration and noise. The vibration can damage the unit.

I hope this helps.

(if you have an top loading washer, shipping bolts are less common. If you provide the model of the washer, I'll see if it is one for which I know the shipping instructions.)

Where are the shipping pins on a centennial 300


The installation instructions are here:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%20W10200890.pdf

From looking on pages 4 - 8 of the manual there are no shipping pins. There are 20 steps to the installation procedures and none of them include the removeal of any shipping pins.

However... that being said if there are any shipping bolts it is usually ONE bolt in the back of the machine near the bottom of the tub carriage on SOME machines. It does not appear that this particular washer has one.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Installing new washer and plug is stuck inside washer.


On this unit you will need to removed the shipping bolts before the plug will release. It is so important that these bolts be removed that the manufacture designed the plug to be stuck inside until all 4 bolts are properly removed.

The installation guide will have instruction on how to properly remove or post a comment to this if you have questions and I will do my best to address them.

WE recently purchased a front loading Frigidaire washer. I love it except we can't seem to get it level so it doesn't vibrate. It is on a concrete floor and thought the feet were self leveling but that's...


Make sure you have removed all the shipping bolts and straps. Front loaders come with bolts that go thru the back to keep the drum from moving during shipping. If you brought the washer home yourselves you may have left in these shipping bolts. Refer to you installation manual. It will give detailed instructions on how to set up your washer. If bolts are left in place the washer will vibrate and shake excessively and cause major damage if left in for too long.

Front load washer


Usually, the problem with frontloaders shaking violently is that shipping materials are still in them (even if you've paid someone to install them). Generally on frigidaire models they have two sets of shipping materials. The first set is a set of 4 shipping bolts on the back panel. After removeing these, on some models, you also have to remove the lower front panel by taking out the screws. On a few of the models you will find 2 yellow metal bars connected to the bottom of the washer and the bottom of the tub. After removing both sets of shipping materials, make sure not only is your unit level, but all feet are firmly on the floor and locked into place. Your machine should have come with a set of instalation instructions that will run you through these steps more clearly, but if you don't have them or are still having trouble, just reply back to me.
