Hi,

code 43 is an out of balance switch problem.Once replaced, would fix the issue.

One trick that might work ;-

I unscrewed top cover, then unscrewed and lifted up the grey computer cover. The balance switch is underneath on the right with a yellow and white wire coming off.

I removed switch from clip and then removed the wires/clips from contacts. There was definitely corrosion on the contacts. I soaked switch overnight in vinegar. Then rinsed with water. Then dried switch out for day.

Put it all back together and am now on second load of washing.

Thanks.

Thanks Taran, this method worked for me. Yours is the only one on this site that did actually work. I still don't know what the dogs are that someone said I should check without any further explanation. I'm not a washing machine tech, I'm a scientist and a girl.

Another little tip: to dry the switch I put it into an airtight container with lots of those little silica dessicant sachets you get in pill bottles and new handbags.

Washing machine stopped filling up and an error 43 or 43 came up on screen


Hi just read your posting.Now Error code 43 means you have an OUT OF BALANCE SWITCH FAULT.The switch is located under the control module which is located under the top panel.Would you like me to guide you throe the testing and possible replacement of the Switch?The secondary source of this error code is your Motor Controller.But we must test the switch 1st as the switch is the most likely component that is faulty.Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter to test the switch.It would make it easier to test the switch with the tester but there are ways around this.Please reply for further assistance and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Service fault 130


rotary position sensor fault. underneath the machine. Unbolt plastic cover with 16mm socket all of the plastic will come off. Undo four 10mm bolts around shaft. Pull off the big round thingy with cooper wire on it carefully. The purple wire is connected to the sensor which looks like a computer card and fits between the copper things ,pull up the sensor carefully and unpug the connection clean off the blue stuff on contacts,use electrical spray cleaner. Put back together in reverse.
