HOW TO FIX ERROR 7 PROBLEM!
This problem is quite common on these machines, especially just after the machine has been moved. As a previous poster has said, Err 7 is a motor error. It is usually because the electrical connector has become detatched from the motor. Here is how to fix it.

  • First of all, PLEASE unplug the machine from the wall socket! And switch off the water supply too!
  • Pull the machine out from under the counter, and turn it so that you have access to the back of the machine.
  • Remove the 3 phillips screws that secure the back plate. You are only removing the small plate immediately behind the drum, not the whole back panel!
  • Look through the hole you have just created by removing the panel down towards the bottom of the machine. You will see the motor. Hopefully you will also see a 7 way connector not connected to anything, and a 7-way socket on the motor! (7 way means that it connects 7 different wires!)
  • Plug the connector back on to the motor. Don't worry, it will only go one way round, so you can't get it wrong. If the connector looks like it is connected, give it a little wiggle and a push to make sure it is fully home.
  • Replace the the small back panel, taking note that the top of the panel goes BEHIND the main back panel, and the bottom of it goes IN FRONT of the main panel. (This could be the other way round, I can't remember!)
  • Push the machine back under the counter, making sure that it is level (level it up by turning the 2 feet at the front of the machine until it doesn't wobble), reconnect the water and plug it in to the electricity supply.
  • Turn the machine on and attempt to operate the machine. (Top Tip: Select the wool or quick wash to test the machine, otherwise you will have to wait 3.5 hrs for the machine to go through a cotton/linen wash! Unplugging the machine won't help, because it remembers where it was when it gets a power cut!)

Hi, I had an error 7 and fixed it myself. In my case one of the two carbon brushes in the motor had seized and needed replacing. This as it turns out is EASY to fix. Here's how.
Unplug the power cord.
Place a bowl on the floor and put the waste pipe into it keeping the pipe low to drain out as much water as possible. Then replace the bowl with a frying pan or something similar as it's lower and you can get more out.
Lay the machine on its side. It's heavy so take care. You may need to disconnect the water pipe. Isolate the supply first if you do.
Underneath the drum you should be able to see the motor. On the side closest to the front of the machine are the two brushes. They are housed in red plastic and have a lead connected via a spade connector. Pull the leads off using long nosed pliers if you have them. Each brush is held in place by two Philips screws. Take the screws out and inspect the brushes.
The brushes should have a smooth surface and spring easily in and out of the red housing, protruding about 1.5cm or so. One of mine was jammed up inside the housing.
If they are damaged or badly worn then replace them both as a pair.
I got mine from ebay from a supplier called suds dash online. The pair cost 15.94 including postage and arrived the day after I ordered them!

Ive repaired loads of these and i know this an old topic but it may prove to be of use to someone . These machines or a good number of them have a small resin encased circuit board screwed to the top upper rear left corner of the inside of the machine .
This board has protruding from it a choke ( looks like a metal polo mint with wire wound round it ) due to a bad bit of design this choke rubs on the inside of the cabinet of the machine wearing away the wire when the wire breaks instant error 7 .

solution remove board remove resin bonding board to case remove single phillips head screw securing board to case unsolder the two conections to the choke and replace choke. a suitable choke can be found for a couple of pounds at the likes of maplin .

It is not draining the water out it is a haier hw-c1460tveme-0


Hi, you can drain the water by disconnecting the grey empty hose putting the end in a bucket and lowering the pipe flat and below the tub level, the water will empty under gravity into the bucket.

When its empty CLICK HERE to follow the instructions ho how to check and empty the filter of any debris, then try the machine again, is it still does not empty then suspect pump failure.

hope this helps.

My Haier HW-C1460TVE-U washing m/c keeps giving (CLrF) ERROR Code


Anyway, my machine shows an error code "clrf". I just spoke to someone at Comet, and apparently this means there is too much foam in the machine. The machine will then refill with water and try to rinse it out, but if after that the machine still has too much foam in, then it will stop the cycle. Hence why my clothes are still wet (although I'd not realised they weren't rinsed properly either!).

I have not been using excessive amounts of washing powder, and usually use powder tablets or the liquid tablet sort, so they are a set amount and I don't do anything daft like stick 6 tablets in! I find it ridiculous that this would cause a problem with the washing machine, as I've used them perfectly fine with other washing machines.

Anyway, the advice from Comet was to keep trying different washing powders until i find one that foams less.
