What is hd code????


Hi Peter, If I understand your question correctly, you are asking what the code "HD" means for your machine. I am unable to find the code "HD", however, here is a list of the codes for these Maytag models, perhaps one looks similar to "HD". Hopefully this answers your question!

Washer displaying code messages
- "LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.
- "Ld" (Washer is taking too long to drain water from the wash tub)
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Is the drain hose installed properly? See "Connect the Drain Hose." Press PAUSE/CANCEL
to clear display.
- "uL" (Unbalanced Load)
If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while running an imbalanced
load correction routine at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code
remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open
lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press START.
- "oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill and begin the wash cycle. If
the washer is overloaded, it will drain any water and detergent that was added during the
fill. To correct the overload, remove several items and add detergent. Close lid and press
START.
- "Sd" (Suds Detected)
Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High
Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions.
If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds
reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine
removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and
the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your
desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.
- "lid" (Lid Opened)
Is the lid open? Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10
minutes, water in the wash tub will drain.
- "HC" (Cold and Hot hoses switched)
This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the cold and hot water
inlet hoses are switched. See "Connect the Inlet Hoses."
- "dL" (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid keeping it from closing. Press
PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "dU" (Door/Lid cannot unlock)
Is there excessive weight on the lid, such as a basket of laundry? Excessive weight will
keep the lid from unlocking. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "F##" code
Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear code. Press START. If code appears again, call for
service.

Washer skips spin cycle what is the most likely problem


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the bottom of the unit, after this test the lid switch assembly, you jump it to test it. If the lid switch is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My Roper Washer RTW43405Q0 won't spin.


For the washer to operate the lid must be fully closed, the timer must be pulled out, and the water must be drained.
The main causes for not spinning are:
  • Lid partially or completely open
  • Lid or other object has hit the timer knob and turned the washer off
  • Lid not locked (by the way, not on all washers) and may be not draining.

    Make sure the lid is completely closed. Make sure that no clothing is in the lid area.

    Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.



    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Hope this works.....

    Washer works fine until about the rinse cycle


    Check your lid switch. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

    The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

    On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

    NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.

    A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

    searspartsdirect.com
    pcappliancerepair.com
    appliancepartspros.com
    repairclinic.com

    The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare.


    If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform yourself. I hope this information is helpful.

    Water doesnt drain


    hi friend,

    Instructions
    1. Step 1 Check and make sure that the washer is plugged in. I know that sounds stupid, but washers move and it has happened before.
    2. Step 2 Check and see if the washer works during the rinse cycle. if the motor moves then skip to step 3 If the motor does not turn then you need to test the power outlet. use a small hand held appliance like a hand mixer to make sure the outlet has power. If the outlet has no power you need to check your breakers. If the outlet has power you need to call a repairman for your washer.
    3. Step 3 Good news because your washer works on the rinse cycle your problem may not be that severe. First check to make sure your lid switch is working. The lid switch is a safety device that ensures that the lid is closed before the machine will begin the spin cycle. to check the lid switch simply close and open the lid several times. each time you close the lid you should here a distinctive click. if there is no click then you need to replace the lid switch. if the is a click continue to step 4
    4. Step 4 Ok you have power and you lid switch is working that means you have one of two things going on. 1. you have clog in the line or 2. your pump is burnt out. To check for a clog start at the back of the washer and remove the drain hose. Be ready for water! It may come pouring out. if water does come pouring out then you need to check the drain hose for a clog. If there is no clog in the drain hose then you have a bad pump and it will have to be replaced. If water does not come out when you remove the drain hose then you have a clog. the clog is either in the pump or in the upper hose that runs from the tank to pump.
    Tips & Warnings
    • make sure to unplug the washer before disassembling. water and electricity don't play well together
    thank u for using fixya

    Kenmore 44152 3.5 high capicity washer will not spin


    Open the lid of the washer and let it down gently to see if you hear a click when it closes. There is a lid switch that sometimes fails and prevents the washer from going into a spin cycle. If you don't hear the click when the lid closes, then you may need to have the lid switch replaced.

    Incomplete wash cycle.


    It sounds as if you have something acting as a flap causing the restriction. You should take the hose that leads from the tub to the pump off and see if there is anything just inside the tub. I have noticed that alot times you could have a coin that blocks the opening. You may have to remove the inner tub to remove anything in there

    Does not spin sometimes


    Tbone, make sure the lid switch is not broke or loose and the actuator is making the lid switch. Usually when you have a no spin, no drain on these direct drive models it involves the lid switch..Catriver...post back.
