Re: Codes

The manual says this is a problem with the water input. I cleaned the water connection (the little screen trapped some broken mineral deposits) and everything was okay. Remember to turn the water back on though.
I cleaned the water drain from the front first and that did not correct the problem. (A pain to unscrew the torque screws on the bottom; not to mention the water when you open the conveniently located water trap.)

My front loading washing keeps coming up with f 13 code, what does this mean


This means that the washer has detected a condition it needs to check. Press "Cancel" to clear the display and to stop the beeping sound, then try turning the washer off and on again. If you still see the "F," turn off the power to your washer and wait five minutes before turning it on again. If you hear the beep or see the "F" when you try to washing again, then it need to be troubleshoot.

thanks for using fixya.

F codes flashing

it is the control board that has failed. there is an upgraded version that runs about $150 and can be installed by the homeowner. its not that difficult. and, if you call sears one source, they may pick up $100 in parts and $150 in service call fees if you complain enough.

however, this doesn't explain why a recall has not been issued for this problem and others that will soon crop up as the machine ages (HC code, LF code, constant UL code).

i learned from this experience. i will never buy another kenmore item again.

Whirlpool duet front load beeped and flashed f with no numbers and stopped mid-cycle. now what. i've pushed red button x2 and tried spin/drain and nothing. now it is stopped again. help!!

In many cases these error codes can be erroneous. If you reset the Central Control Unit (the Main Control for the washer), in many cases, the problem will clear. You must unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in order to do this, however. If an error code returns following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem.

Washer won't stop beeping and can not change cycle selections

what light is flashing when it beeps. You might have to check and see if you are getting water to both Hot and Cold on the machine. Or your door might be closed all the way

Error codes

if this is a fridgidaire washer, I guess it's a clogged coin catcher. You have remove the front access panel and clean it out. I am working on that now.
