You can try unplugging it for at least two hours and then re-starting. Since I moved my washer starting acting up getting stuck at various points in a cycle--sometimes 19 minutes, or 12, or 33, or 3...no rhyme or reason, no specific point in the cycle. My mover is an appliance repair guy and told me to do the unplug thing and it has worked multiple times--not that I enjoy having this happen over and over, but he told me Sears would charge a minimum of 100 to show up at the door, and I don't have that right now. Anyhow, it has only worked if I left it alone at least 2 hours---my new strategy is going to be unplugging it daily...I love the washer but this is nutty.

Our Whirlpool washer is GVW9959KQ0, bought in September 2001,
in September 2010 it had the problem as follow.
When the panel was lite up, it was always set at "44" minute, NORMAL wash,
no touch area is responsive, not even STOP or START.
I could turn off the panel completely by pressing STOP and
"Whitest white" in sequence quickly.
When the panel was shut off, I could turn on the panel again
by just pressing "STOP"; But the panel was back again
to "44" minute, NORMAL wash. Unplugging the power did not help (see as follow).
That was the washer life for a couple weeks.
We left it w/o power for 24 hours, it worked again normally
just for 1 wash, and it was back again to the zombie mode;
left it again for 24 hours, no luck, left it again for 24 hours,
worked again for just one wash.
We managed to wash 3 loads during the 2-week period (just 1 wash per time).
Since the washing functionality sounds and looks working well to me,
I thought that the panel might be the culprit.
Finally we ordered Control Panel Assembly (Parts AP3884746,
it is just the panel part where we touch for washing selections
w/o electronic boards behind it) at appliancepartspros.com
(cost $177 regular S

    sorry... truncated, too long :)

    (cost $177 plus regular S&H, arrived in 2 business days),
    as suggested by many posters in the internet who has almost
    exact same problems. It works for now, just had 3 consecutive loads.
    Hope it works for years to come... BTW, our drier had the same problem,
    back then 4 years ago, its Panel Assemby was also replaced.
    hese problems happened after we had power outage, probably power surge,
    during storms.

Display will not clear. washer will not start


If you had to replace blown capacitors on the control board, whatever took them out most likely took out something else on the board at the same time. Causes are many...lightning strike, moisture, bugs etc. I would look carfully at the board with a magnifing glass...you might get lucky and find a short you can fix. If not, your probably going to have to invest in a new control board.

Why won't the oven door lock to start the self cleaning? The door appears to be shut all the way. After hit start, this code appears E1 F5


According to the Whirlpool website, the self-cleaning latch may be interfering with the door, though this would be indicated by an "E0 F5" error code. If that's the case, Whirlpool recommends the following:
1) Press "Stop/Clear" to clear your display.
2) According to Whirlpool, there should be a door switch plunger in the upper right corner of the oven front. Press and hold this so that the door latch will unlock.
However, if it is indeed "E1 F5" (or any other number with those letters in the code), Whirlpool recommends calling an appliance technician.

Problem with the Samsung Washing Machines The machine keeps coming up with the message HEI 10x


Here is a list of errors for your machine.

I hope they help you.


SAMSUNG WASHING MACHINES, ERROR FUNCTIONS

When an error occurs, the alarm noise will sound and the error code displayed in the program window. Listed below is a series of error codes you may or may not see for your model of Samsng Washing Machine. The errors are shown as blinking in O.5 second intervals until the error status has cleared. In this case, all the driving devices are turned off until the error is cleared.

1. WATER SUPPLY ERROR - Display shows 4E.

Water Supply Error occurs when water level frequency does not show changes more than 100Hz or water is not supplied up to the preset water level after 10 Minutes or more at the time of initial water supply. The error status can be cleared by turning the POWER switch OFF and back ON.

2. WATER DRAIN ERROR - Display shows 5E.

5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.

3. OVER-FLOW ERROR - Display shows oE.

Over-Flow error occurs when the water level is too high. It can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF. Water is drained prior to POWER switch OFF. The tub is drained for 2 minutes if a frequency of more than 25 KHz is detected.

4. UNBALANCE ERROR - Display shows UE.

Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.

If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

5. WATER HEATER ERROR - Display shows HE, HE1.

HE, HE1 is displayed if the water temperature rises by 7 C or more in 1 Min or by 2 C or less 20 Min after heating process has started. The error can be cleared by turning POWER switch OFF.

6. WATER PRESSURE SWITCH ERROR - Display shows 1 E.

* Generated Frequency Signal of WATER LEVEL (WIL) SIW (KHz)

Normal Level = Abnormal W/L Frequency
Low Level = 30.00 Khz
High Level = 15.00 Khz

If the same signal is detected for more than 5 seconds, it is a PRESSURE SWITCH Error. When this error occurs the drain pump will operate for 3 min. and the display will show 1 E indicating a pressure switch error.

7. ABNORMAL WATER TEMPERATURE ERROR- Display shows cE.

e.g. If the water temperature is 50 C or more, during a Delicate or Wool cycle.

At the time of initial water supply, if the water temperature is not appropriate, the display will show cE. This error can be cleared by POWER SWITCH OFF.

8. WATER LEAKAGE ERROR - Display shows 11 E.

Water Leakage error occurs when the water drains naturally, (by leakage) after the washing program starts.

9. THERMISTOR ERROR - Display shows tE

My wife was beginning an auto cleaning of our whirlpool range oven [model RF387LXG]. When changing the automatic cleaning time from the 3 hr 30 minute default time to 2 hr 30 minutes, the display began...


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.

Oven wont work everytime we push bake E1 and F1 appear


Is the display showing E0-F5?
The Self-Cleaning latch may be interfering with the oven door causing the Self-Cleaning cycle not to work. If the oven door is open and will not lock, press Stop/Clear to clear the display, press and hold the door switch plunger (located in the upper-right corner of the oven front), and the door latch will unlock. If the oven door is closed and locked, press Stop/Clear to clear the display; apply pressure to the upper-right corner of the oven door, and the door will unlock.
Is the display showing E"#"-F"#," for example, E1-F2?
You will need to schedule service.
