The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

F25 indicates a possible drive motor tachometer error. (NOTE: The tech sheet is located behind the front quarter panel– remove the three hex head screws at the very bottom to remove the panel. The tech sheets will be folded up in a little plastic pouch.

The f25 error code is a motor tachometer error. To determine the problem you will have to remove the top cover and the front access panel. On some models, the rear panel will have to be taken off for easier access to the motor control. Now with the washer-unplugged remove the each plug one at a time and make sure the pins in the connector are not bent then reseat them on the board. Now retest the washer. If the washer still fails, you will need a meter to ohm the motor.

With the washer unplugged, locate the motor harness. Now unplug the motor connector to ohm the motor. Follow the list below to check the motor.

* Pin 1 to 3 6 ohms
* Pin 1 to2 6 ohms
* Pin 2 to 3 6 ohms
* Pin 4 to5 115 ohms

If the readings are close to what is listed above the motor is fine.

Live voltage checks are dangerous, and possibly deadly. Exercise caution at all times. If you are not comfortable working with live electricity I suggest you call an experienced service technician. I have provided you with a wire diagram with what the voltages should be. If the voltages are correct I would then recommend that you replace the motor control.

Why does my Dell Vostro 330, running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit go into sleep mode, even though I am telling it not to?


If your sure after going into the control panel and going into the power options icon that all your power settings are set to none then there could be something in the background that is causing the laptop to go into sleep mode.
Click on the windows logo in the bottom left hand corner and in the search box type in the word MSCONFIG. Press enter and then go into the startup tab. You'll see all the programs that are running. Best things is to click on the box that says disable all. click on apply then okay and let the computer restart. Let it run for a while and see if it goes into sleep mode still. If it does then that means there is an issue with the Operating system and you should try doing a system restore (located in the system tools section) back to the last date the laptop was working properly.
If it stays out of sleep mode then that means one of the programs that was disabled is the culprit. You'll have to go back into msconfig and enable all the programs and then disable the ones you know you dont have to have starting up when you go into windows.

1. Go to the task bar in the lower right corner of your screen.

2. Right -click on the battery icon and select Power Options.

3. This will bring up the Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options window.

4. On the left hand side of the window, select "Change when the Computer Sleeps"

5. This will bring up the Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings window with options for different settings on the battery and plugged in.

6. Click on the arrow for the drop down menu next to Put the Computer to Sleep>Select Never (last option) do this for both plugged in and battery mode if this is your choice.

7. Click on Save Changes.

the monitor is in sleep mode ... have you tried hitting the keyboard Space bar?

Blank screen after monitor sleep just blue flashing light


Hi,

First of all you can change the Power Settings in Control Panel. You can configure as you need. I mean after how much wait it should go for sleep n all.

If it takes 5 min. to wakeup that means you have so many applications running that system cannot manage or RAM is small.

The final solution just remove the Display drivers and reinstall it.

After removing please restart the system once to proceed further

I pressed the sleep button by accident and the pic and sound went off and the stand by/timer red light started blinking. what does it mean?


Depends on how many times it blinks,just count the blinks Example: if it blink 2 times then pauses and blink 5 times then the code would be 25 and so on

Once you have this code,please post it.

Flashing lights


You can't it lets you know that the power is on even when the screen is off in sleep mode. You can still recieve call when it is like this if it is not blinking it is off and will not recieve calls or use anything else without waiting for it ti power up and boot up much like your PC.

Power LED Flashing Yellow on Qosmio laptop F15


This flashing LED means only one thing, and it is quite harmless:

Your laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must simply "wake the laptop up" now:

Look for a symbol on keyboard for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key). If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few seconds.

Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.

If this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start laptop normally.

Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.

If this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)

good luck.
