Hi I've got a KFL1600 with error 6 too - I fixed this once by cleaning the filter, but now it's come up again and the filter is clean. Not sure if it's related but the door has stopped unlocking too and we have to open it by pulling the little tag in the filter door. Very reticent to get it repaired as everyone says that these machines are a nightmare and costly.

    Found some more info on a couple of sites. Error 6 means that means that the machine is not heating up enough in the time available. which can be due to either:
    1. The machine is overloaded and is automatically taking in more water than it can heat up in the time available. If you are using a gentle or synthetic cycle then it requires more water so they recommend that on those cycles the machine should only have a half load (3kg).

    2. The heater is broken and the water is no heating up at all

Hi I have this error displayed in my machine. Can you tell me what causes this? Could it be because we use too much washing powder? Thanks

You did not post the error BUT if it is a front load machine you must use detergent that says "He" That detergent wont produce a bunch of suds.

KFL1600 - stops with Error 7.

If you unplug the machine when it stalls, that should reset the controller to allow release of the door. Does the pump run when it is supposed to? If ok, check the drain coupling at the bottom of the outer tub. If you pull the drain hose loose at the tub, water should run out (if water is in it). If not, there may be a stray sock or similar that is blocking the drain opening. Hopefully, there may be an access plate nearby that allows cleaning of the port. Otherwise, the machine will need to be torn down completely to access the port. (BIG job!) If you lay the drain hose down at floor level, an open drain system will allow gravity draining of the machine which would point to a defective or inoperative pump.

Kleenmaid kfl1600 front loader, does not start

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
