Question about Washing Machines

Washer went haywire

Last night all the lights on my washing machine just started flashing, and I can't get it to do anything. The washer is only about 2 weeks old. I held the soak and rinse button for 5 seconds to reset it, and it did nothig. While holding buttons the flashing stops, but as soon as you release the buttons the flashing begins again.

    I unhooked the washer for 10 min just like you said, and it is good as new..Thank you very much..

    I just purchased this machine about 2 weeks ago. Should I be alarmed of a problem, or does this sort of thing happen often?

Obviously, the control panel is indicating some type of error condition.

First thing to do is unplug the unit from the 120VAC power for about 10 minutes and plug it back in. See if this fixes the problem.

2nd thing I'd check is the ribbon or molex connectors on the back of the control panel. Re-seat them.

It sounds like you have a broken piece somewhere in the unit. If you can pull the machine out and then take the back off. Then start it up and see what you can see. I'm still thinking that a belt slipped or snaped ergo the clunking. It shutting of tells me something is out of wack. The drum might have sliped off aswell. Good luck let me know what you see when you take the back off.

Error Code F01

F01 is not a valid fault code but if it is displaying that and all the lights are flashing the main computer has gone haywire. Possibly the display board (in the plastic panel that houses the buttons) may be faulty but this is unlikely
