    My new Ariston Hotpoint ends also into F10, most of the time. Spinning especially is difficult. Took all electronics out and cleaned the contacts. Worked then intermittently.

    Then got the brilliant idea to touch the heatsink during washing to see if it gets hot. I got ELECTRIC SHOCK! Not severe, but more like an electric fence type, thing which you really dont want to do another time.

    Error code list claims F10 is about water intake.

F10 shows Motor Control Unit (MCU) heat sink thermal trip If the thermal protector on the MCU heat sink gets too hot, it will open the thermal protector on the heat sink which will stop motor functions and an F10 will be displayed. Potential Causes • Check for Proper Installation, verify the unit is not located near a source of heat and has proper ventilation.• Check Wire Harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU) • Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components • Check MCU • Check Motor Replace failed component .hope this helps

Front load washer LG wm2140cw with error code up side down FE. Any ideas what this means? Will start to run then error code shows up and it stops.


A tE error code on the display of the washer indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor.
  1. Unplug the washer from the power outlet for 10 seconds.
  2. Plug the washer back in and press the POWER button and then the SPIN SPEED button until No Spin is selected. Press the START/PAUSE button.
  3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.
  4. If the tE error code appears again, close the water taps and unplug the washer. The washer will require repair service.

If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

Hope this helps.

Says "dr", will not start


Hi,

The error clearly indicates bad door switch. Very simple to fix, have to take top off and loosen switch from front panel. Remove and replace.
Part #131763245 and suggested retail price $50.

Thank you

Close are Too Wet


Are you getting any type of error message on the display?

How long have you had the washer? Have you ever cleaned out the filter?

I also have a Duet (2 years old) and my clothes were not spinning out as well as they once did. I started getting a SUD error message with almost every load and then started getting a F5 message which the manual says it means it's not draining correctly. It never said how to fix it though. Went into the panel underneath washer, found the clean out plug for the drain...it was gross! Cleaned it out, washer works like new again.

This means the computer is not seeing that you opened the lid between cycles 3 times. So likely the lid locks are faulty. PLEASE rate my help as solved all other ratings dock us

HOTPOINT ULTIMA SUPER SILENT ( WF 860 ) 1600 SPIN SPEED.


I read that someone has a problem with F-03 on the display. I have seen this for the first time on my hotpoint wf860 1600 spin. I read the manual the only thing I can think of maybe an unbalanced load in the machine. Albeit the manual is not clear about this. P21 automatic features unbalanced load warning.
