Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

Code E12 (?) after power outages, got it working again but is stuck in heavy duty mode only.

After several power outages, we were getting a weird code that was not listed in the manual. After fiddling around, got it working to heavy duty cycle only. I suspect a computer problem...???

A power surge may have blown out or shorted any one of the many components in modern washers. Seems silly but I've fixed many error codes by unplugging mine for a few minutes from the wall and re plugging it. Hope that helps. Otherwise you could call the manufacturer and ask for the meaning of the code its self

Testimonial: "Thanks Brian. We were doing the 'unplugging' routine, but it is now getting worse (harder to reset/get rid of code). I had contacted the manufacturer, who told me to get ahold of our local service company...at a $200.00 charge just to visit our home...At any rate, I do thank you for your assistance!"

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet washer problem

Our machine was giving the HF code at 37 min after over filling with water. I unplugged the machine, popped the top (took the 3 torx screws off the back) pulled the small hose off the pressure switch sensor (round sensor on the upper back right of the machine) and blew it out just by mouth. It obviously cleared some junk. It works fine now. (also unplugged the 6 wires on the sensor, turned it around and blew on that and heard it clicking, so I knew that was ok.) Hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: wash cycle stuck

You can attempt to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main computer for the washer. Sometimes resetting it is all that is required to correct momentary program glitches. If the problem reoccurs following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem. Let me know if you still experience problems. I hope this helps you.

HI, this is a Door Open Error.

Possible Causes are..-

* Door not all the way closed
* Loose electrical connections at door switch and pwb assembly(Control Board)
* Door switch assembly is out of order(Miss aligned)
* Gasket on door may be creased in

Most common issue here will be a defective door lock switch. check all causes before replacing the switch.

My washing has a E12 code on it.


I appreciate your inquiry, friend!
From what you have described your Electrolux washer is displaying an error code of "E12". An "E12" error code stands for a non-fatal reading or writing to the memory. This can be cleared with a reset and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue it could be a possible problem with your control panel and that may need to be replaced. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Hoover washer dryer Error Code E12 during dry programme. How can I fix?


E12 means a problem filling on dry cycle.

Unplug the appliance, take the top off and check that the plastic condenser below the fan is clear and clean.

If this is ok, the most likely fault is the triple valve isn't opening properly to feed water into the condenser.

Had to change battery. Since I did this the day will scroll several times and will not let me set the day, nor the time, nor the mode. Is my unit toast ?? As it was working till I changed the battery.


Most digital timers suggest resetting as last-step effort to restore functionality.
This particular timer is reset by removing battery.
Try removing battery again. Otherwise it seems the timer has gone bad.
HB88RC is discontinued product.
Replacement is heavy-duty Intermatic HB800RCL 2-outlet or HB800RCH 1-outlet timer.

Less expensive and less reliable timer Woods 59403 with 1-outlet has quite a few 'timer won't work' questions on fixya.

This may be similar to another solution posted. Try heavy duty batteries - I used ACDelco Super Alkaline, but any brand of "heavy duty" AA should work. Make sure battereis are not cold; low temp causes any battery to lose power. If fresh heavy duty batteries do not help, it may need professional service. (DO NOT try to force the lens back to retracted position - something WILL break.)

I am getting an error C6000 on my Kyocera KM-1820 after we had a power outage. I can't seem to get it to turn off. What do I need to do in order to get the copier to work again and for it not to have the...


Go into the service mode ( 10871087 ) then enter 163 then hit the start button. This clears the C6000 (heater error) and if it is a false code due to a power outage, it will clear the code and resume normal operation. If the code comes back, you likely have a bad heater lamp or thermal fuse or thermistor.

Gestetner CP6123 giving error E12


You should check the all paper sensor, there must be a pieces of paper in some sensor and make the sensor in wrong direction. You should remove all and off the power for a while and the start to use it.
