Most topside panels are just stuck on the top of the tub with a double sided tape.
Sometimes it can be held into place with a nut on the underside that must be unthreaded to remove the top panel.

What's your problem?code F35 is coming up


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned. This problem could be caused by a failed analog pressure sensor, a problem with the air tube connection between the analog pressure sensor and the bottom of the washer tub or a failed central control unit.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.
A loose wiring connection or a broken wire harness could be causing this problem. You can remove the top panel of the washer by taking out the screws at the very back of the top panel. Pull the panel back slightly and then lift it up and off of the washer. Check the wire harness connected to the analog pressure sensor. Also check the air tube connected to this component. If these connections are okay, check the analog pressure sensor connection on the central control unit. THE IMAGE BELOW (click the link for zoom) shows the location of the central control unit on a similar model of washer and also provides a wiring diagram. The analog pressure sensor harness plugs into the central control unit on the PR8 connector. Make sure that this connection is secure. Look for damage to the wire harness.

10_15_2011_12_33_01_pm.jpg

If this dont solve it, I suggest replace the analog pressure sensor (shown in THIS LINK). Additionally, keep in mind that if your device is less than a year old, then this component is under warranty and should be replaced by a dealer technician.

Magtag series 3000 Error F 71 Flashing. Will not respond to shut-of or start.. What do you do?


Hi, F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

F32


The F32 error code indicates a water level pressure switch failure. This is normally caused by wiring connection problem or a failed pressure switch. If you are able to unplug the washer and remove the top panel, you can check the wiring connections between the control board and the water level pressure switch. To remove the top panel (with the washer unplugged), take out the screws at the very back of the top panel and slide the panel back and then pick it up and remove it from the top of the washer. The pressure switch is on the top of the right side panel toward the back of the washer.

If the wire harness connection between the pressure switch and the control board is okay, then you will probably need to replace the pressure switch to correct this problem. The part number for the pressure switch is 8181695. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website www.searspartsdirect.com .

The F28 error code indicates a communication error between the main control board and the motor control board at the bottom of the washer by the drive motor. A loose wiring harness connection can cause this problem. It can also be caused by a failed motor control board, a bad drive motor or a defective main control board. You may be able to check the wiring harness connection to the motor control board by unplugging the washer and removing the bottom from service panel. To remove this panel (with the washer unplugged), take out the screws at the very bottom of the panel and then pull the panel down and out to remove it. Access to the motor control board may be limited. You may be able to check to make sure that wiring connections are firmly secured on the motor control board. If the connections are okay and you continue to get the F28 error code, you may need to replace the motor control board.

My machine wach but do not spin a the end.


Note: This solution is intended only for asker qualityisc as per Live Chat session discussion. Error code reads E47 which means the Control board thinks the PTC circuit (wax motor) is open.

Unplug the machine then remove the spring-loaded wire loop that holds in place the front of the bellows over the lip of the door opening in the front panel.
a550e37.jpg

Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected at the bottom of the bellows and pull the wire out of the groove of the bellows then pull the bellows off of the lip of the front panel.

Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine and disconnect the electrical connections.

Measure the resistance of the wax motor. The normal resistance is around 1500 ohms. Shorted or open circuit wax motor means the door lock and switch assembly needs to be replaced.
27a1c27.jpg

Simply
replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) if the wax motor reads shorted or open to address the issue. But if the wax motor resistance is normal, check the continuity of the door lock and switch assembly wire harness, particularly the wax motor wire harness. Start with the continuity of the red/black wire of the wax motor harness to each of the red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness. They should all have continuity; otherwise, replace the harness.

Remove the top panel to access the control board if further continuity test is necessary or if the red/black wire of the wax motor harness has continuity with the all other red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness.

Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the cabinet then lift the panel off. The console can be removed from the cabinet to completely access the control board connections, particularly the door lock and switch assembly harness connections. Check the continuity of the red/black wires at the door lock and switch assembly to the red/black wire of the harness connected to connector J2 on the control board.
0bdb8ce.jpg

The problem is in the control board if the wax motor is good and the door lock and switch assembly wire harness has all the necessary continuity. The only viable solution, should that be the case, is the replacement of the control board.

Whirlpool duet sport front load doesn't wash and shows code F2O and some times F13


f13 is a Dispenser circuit error

If the dispenser motor is not able to be driven to it's proper position.

Check mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to the top of the dispenser.

Check Wire Harness connections to the dispenser motor and Central Control Unit (CCU)

Check Dispenser Motor



"F20" is a No Water Detect error. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed. This can be a potential problem with the following:


If you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.
- Verify wire harness connections at the pressure switch, inlet valves, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. Click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

To access the Pressure Switch - remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a plastic air hose attached. Verify the electrical connections are intact, and the air hose is attached and not cracked or leaking.

To access the Central Control Unit (CCU) - with the top panel of the washer removed, the CCU is located directly behind, and just above the rear of the wash tub. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the lower panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics and to verify the wire connections at the CCU. In addition, the tech sheet will also assist in how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

Probably a control panel error


The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself.

GE #WHDVH626 Front Loading Machine - Door gasket Leaks, Need to replace gasket, HOW?


Remove the top panel, the control panel, the toe panel, and the front panel to replace the door gasket. Disconnect power to the washer before servicing to avoid electric shock.

Remove the top panel by removing the top cover and the three 7-mm hex-head screws that attach the rear of the top panel to the cabinet. Remove the top cover by removing the three Phillips-head screws that hold it in place then insert a putty knife blade or similar tool along the top seam between the cover and the control panel. Lightly tap the cover off rearward; slide the top panel rearward then lift it off the cabinet.

Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops; push down the locking tab, and then pull the dispenser drawer all the way out. Once the drawer is out, remove the Phillips-head screw from the recess of the drawer opening.

Remove the four Phillips-head screws that attach the control panel to the control panel cover. Release the tab on the right side of the control panel from the bracket inside the cabinet.

Lift the top edge of the control panel to release the three tabs that hold its top in place. Push the control panel towards the left, then release the side tab.

Label the wires and mark the connectors matching the wires before disconnecting the wires from the control panel.

Remove the three Phillips-head screws at the bottom of the toe panel holding it to the cabinet, then pull the toe panel down and off the cabinet.

Open the washer door, then remove the three Phillips-head screws holding the door switch and lock assembly to the front panel.

The door gasket is held to the lip of the door opening by a wire and a spring hidden in the fold of gasket. Grasp the wire at the spring location using a pair of needle-nose pliers and stretch the spring to clear the gasket, and then remove the wire and spring assembly. Peel off the door gasket from the lip of the door opening into the drum.

Remove the four Phillips-head screws that secure the front panel on its four corners to the cabinet. Lift up the front panel then remove it from the two hooks and all the way off the cabinet.

Pull down the top of the gasket, and then remove the nozzle from the gasket. Remove the gasket from the water inlet pipe, and then loosen the 7-mm bolt that tightens the wire holding the gasket to the outer tub lip. Take note of the position of the gasket, and then remove it and the wire from the lip of the outer tub.

Install the new gasket into the lip of the outer tub aligning the notch in the gasket with the arrow located on the top of the lip of the outer tub, and then secure it with the wire and the bolt. Do not over tighten the wire with the bolt. Allow a gap of about 1.25 inches between the ends of the wire. Over tightening the wire may tear the gasket.

Insert the nozzle into the gasket ensuring that the washer is placed on the outside and that the nozzle is aligned with the dent on the inside of the gasket. Insert the water inlet pipe into the gasket, and then put the gasket inside the drum.

Reinstall the front panel back into position on the hooks then secure it to the cabinet with the four Phillips-head screws.

Slide the toe panel up into the cabinet then secure it with the three Phillips-head screws.

Reconnect the wires to the control panel. Snap the control panel back into the cabinet, and then secure it with the screw at the recess of the drawer opening.

Slide the top panel back in place then secure its rear with the three 7mm hex-head screws to the cabinet. Reinstall the top cover and secure it the three Phillips-head screws.

Sometimes washer stops and gives f 11 i hit pause then start to finish load


F/11 is serial communication error code. It means the communication between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU) is not good. Possible causes include worn or failed drive system components, faulty CCU or MCU, broken wiring harness, faulty drive motor, or faulty wiring harness connections in the CCU, the motor, or the MCU.


In your case, the problem is intermittent and it may indicate a glitch in the wiring harness connection between the MCU, CCU and the motor. The glitch may be due to a loose, soiled or oxidized terminal connection. Check and clean the terminals and connectors.
  1. Remove the three screws securing the top panel at the rear of the machine.
  2. Slide back the top panel then lift it off the machine.
  3. Lift the top plastic tabs of the central control unit (CCU) that are securing it to the back cabinet frame.
  4. Slide the CCU towards the front of the machine and remove it.
  5. Disconnect and clean the terminals and connectors one at a time.
  6. Reconnect the connectors properly and ensure a good connection with the terminals.
  7. Reinstall the CCU in reverse order of the above-mentioned procedure.
Access to the motor control unit (MCU) requires disassembly of the machine's front panel. Please let me know if the error code still appear and if you need to access the MCU and the motor.
