Power it off at the mains
hold in usually either the menu button or power on {check out google the exact model }
then apply the mains power
and wait and hold for 15 seconds let go
this will reset the board and clear any faults detections from before {where it came from}

all machines are different in the way reset it applied
some even rotate the program selector back to where they failed
then you can stop it drain it and wait till it opens and then start a fresh cycle too see if the fault is clear

Hi mate

I had the same problem replaced the board still no go. In my case it turned out to be the drain pump. Nothing wrong with it but a small bit of grit that although difficult to see was impeding the impeller

Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons. You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel washer GW712 won't spin

There is an issue with your drainage area. Best to remove the pump and check for the obstruction in the line or at the impellar.(If the water is not completely drained, the pressure switch wont send a low level to the timer to allow a spin).

My Whirlpool Duet washer is only using with hot water regardless the temp setting then errors out 5 minutes in with F 05. Is there any way I can test the temp control or control board?

Since you checked or replaced the parts that are most causes of the failure, the control board is most suspect. Make sure all the wiring involved is securely connected to the board and devices. I don't know how to specifically check the board inputs but usually the board gets replaced when the other suspect devices are working.

Is There Any Changes in the Board Software Version After a Service Board Is Replaced?

fter a service board is replaced, the control board checks and determines the software of the new service board.
1. If the IO board package file contains the new service board, the control board updates the software of the new service board to that of its own.

If the new service board supports the anti-downgrade function and the control board software is within the anti-downgrade version range, the new service board runs with its default software.
If the new service board supports the anti-downgrade function but the control board software is not within the anti-downgrade version range, the control board updates the software of the new service board as that of its own.
If the IO board package file does not contain the new service board, the software of the new service board is loaded to the IO board package file of the control board.

Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided you replaced the control board and continue to experience troubles with your Frigidaire refrigerator. Normally an "EF" error code stands for evaporator fan circuit failure. This could be an issue with your evaporator fan or main control board. I would suggest consulting with a professional for proper diagnosis to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt

Temperature control keeps going down. Replaced the Temperature probe, replaced axial fans. Contactor works but cant get no power from board to close contactor. This second board I have replaced.

In a cold oven the resistance of the temp probe should be approx 10k ohms. If the control has the control knob separate from the control board, as in a separate potentiometer then I would suspect that as the problem. You shouldn't lose 2 control boards in a short amount of time.
