SOURCE: error code 7

The error code 7 is in fact a motor error.
The motor that drives the spin cycle has become faulty. The only solution now is to get an engineer in to fix it or get it sent away to get repaired.

SOURCE: Hi I have a hotpoint

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Most Hotpoint, Ariston and Indesit (who make the other two) use similar fault codes. Although I cannot confirm it on your particular machine, f08 means there is a problem with the heater/its relay/its control. Often a cure is to re-seat the cables/wiring to and from these items.
Good luck,

John C

After the wash cycle it won't spin or drain and makes a hummin g noise then stops without spinning or draining

there is a blockage on the outlet from the drum
perhaps a sock or something is stuck in the drain
and the pump will pump for so long them error is detected
and it shuts down

this sock or something perhaps plastic or etc
can get into the space between the washing drum and the outer drum
and cause this issue

you only notice it at certain times filling it up will make the garment float
and then it empties and gets sucked down blocking the outlet

its a job for a tech to take out a sock or some garment
and clean the outlet fully

check your waist at the sink is clear and flows well
and the machines outlet filter ...

Getting f20 error code, how to check flow meter operation

Check for stuck socks or something just under the door seal at the bottom of the drum. Check filter for blockage and all outlet pipes. Check the pressure switch hose for any holes as it may have rubbed on the drum and created a small hole in it. Make sure flow meter is level and not at any angle.

Can you tell me what e13 means on my bosch nexxt 500

Timed out on drain cycle, basically you either have an outlet blockage or something is trapped in the pump, you can check the pump by opening the bottom right flap on the front panel,manually emptying the w/m and checking the pump filter for coins etc. Also, check the outlet isn't blocked. E13 means timed out on drain cycle, In other words its trying to drain and cant so it stops with that error code, Hope this helps,

I have a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher DD602. I continue to get the "U2" error code while running a cleaning cycle. The drawer is empty and I've cleaned out the filter and drain line. It...

Looks like you may have a broken drawer limit switch.
If the switch isn't depressed...the CPU thinks its still open.
To get to the switch...youve got to remove the drawer.

Hope this helps...

I,ve a LG VM-1433IFD model and I,ve had it unblocked and now its coming up on screen as OE fault help

The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.

A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system.

Thank You

Error code

H20 indicates incoming water supply problem.
Check that the water is fully turned on.
Check the inlet hose/s for kinks or restriction.
Make sure there is a good pressure of water to washer.

Water overflow error on machine E1

The error code E1 : washing machine has exceeded a check time for fill, heat or empty.
Common causes for this are fill and empty problems, heater fault (or the wiring to it broken), water pump open circuit (although that would stop the water draining too) Pressure chamber blocked or pressure tubing pipe looped below the pressure bottle, or a sticking eco ball in the sump hose (sludge and grease build up)
This error code is generic and vey common.Try getting checked the internal wiring damage by professionals.I certainly hope the problem lies there.
Thanks for contacting

Hotpoint WT761 washing machine - Error code F-10 The machine is filling with water, then signalling F-10, then pumping the water out. So the fill solenoid and the pump are working OK. If I set the machine...

Thats strange, F10 means no cold fill.
Ok back to basics, you can check the pressure switch by taking off the tube and gently blowing into it and I mean gently, you should hear a click if its ok - make sure the other end is'nt blocked, blow it out with a cycle pump near the drum end
