It means that there is a fault in the heating circuit and the heater is not working
The listed site deals with this problem so take a look and if you are fully capable of testing, follow the troubleshooting instructions but always double check that the unit is unplugged or disconnected from the electrical supply.
And remember kindergarten rule #1 "If in doubt, don't" with everything that is potentially dangerous. Electricity kills so a service repair bill may be a better solution.
Hope this helps.

F:23 means that your machine is leaking and should be repaired. This is often a bad seal and if you are competent or know a friend who is they can inspect the source of the leak for you. Needless to say you should make sure that you unplug your machine before attempting any repairs.
Hope this helps you.

Welcome to FixYa.
The F23 indicates the unit is sensing too much water in the unit. This can be a result of either a faulty inlet/water valve which is allowing water to enter even when not called for.
That can be confirmed or dismissed by simply letting the machine sit idle unused for several hours ( while monitoring it though ) and inspect for water accumulating in the basket.
If there is water present after sitting not used, you`ve got a faulty fill valve.
To swap out the valve simply follow these steps...
**Unplug the unit from the wall before attempting any repairs suggested here...safety first**
1) turn off the water and unfasten the hot & cold fill hoses going to the washer.
2) remove the three screws along the back of the top panel and then slide the top panel back slightly and pull up. The panel should lift away.
3) in the left rear corner ( when observing from the front of the washer )you should now see the valve.
4) remove the wires, carefully the harness has little release tabs which must be bent back slightly to pull the wire & harness off.
5) remove the hose to the dispenser assembly, a pair of pliers or vise-grips works well here.
6) remove the screw on the outside back wall of the washer and pull the valve out, voila !
Now the other possible cause of the F23 is actually a by-product of a partially blocked drain pump, hence the unit doesn`t evacuate enough water when draining thus when it fills following the drain, you get a scenario of too much water.
**If this is the case one would likely find an error code of F21 in the memory if doing a diagnostic...but we can cross that bridge later if necessary**
Here`s what you can check for...
If it is in a position that allows you too lean it back against something strong or a second set of hands it will help if tilted back almost all the way.
Careful not to hurt the machine or yourself, and undo the fill hoses and drain hose.
**Again Turn off the breaker at the service panel or unplug the washer from the wall socket...safety first**
1) locate the screws in front at the very bottom of the panel below the door and pull the panel down and forward until it is off. They will be either 1/4" hex head or #20 torx head screws.
2) You will immediately see the drain pump in front of you with a large removable filter. ( **see image below...this is were a wet-dry shop vac and towels come in handy, also the use of the removed panel as a catch pan is beneficial...but you may still get wet ) 3) Turn it counter-clockwise should allow you to remove it and inspect it and clean it out. Make a good thorough inspection inside the pump as well not just the removable filter.
4) Re-insert the filter and before placing the panel back run a test rinse/drain cycle to inspect for leaks and to verify the unit drains and spins now.
( If the problem still exist`s the "F21" or "F23"will re-appear. If so you`ll need to check the hose/rubber bellows from pump to tub...back-flow ball...for other obstructions ).
5) If all appears OK after your efforts, well your efforts paid off...pat yourself on the back. You just saved yourself potentially a couple hundred bucks !
Now You should be good to go. Re-attach the lower panel and you`re back in business.
**This however can also be caused by the back-flow ball inside the bellows which connects the tub to the pump. There is a large clamp which secures it to the tub, but if you remove it to clean out all the dirt built up inside, make sure you get it good and secure when putting it back.**
Let me know how it goes and if you require further assistance. I realize this is a lot of info anbd I hope it isn`t overwhelming, but it isn`t as hard as it may appear...you`ll see.

SOURCE: f23 fault
F23 that it indicates a leak into the base of the appliance.
You'll need to unplug the appliance and take the rear cover off.
Check for a spillage and if there is an anti flood device in the base, ensure it's reset/working or replace it.
