Fault F07 is a Motor Control Unit Error. It means that the Central Control Unit has detected a short in the motor control unit. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve this issue you need to:

  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the MCU
  • Check the Drive Motor
  • Check the Wire Harness

  • Please revert for further assistance.

    AWO 3551 have a FP fault . help

    thanks for your advice. I have an AWO 3551 Whirlpool front-loading washing machine. It works but I think it's highly likely that the filter needs a clean and is long overdue. I've opened the front plate and unscrewed the plastic cover but the filter doesn't come out at the same time. It seems pretty stuck and there is nothing to get a purchase on (unless I get pliers and turn counter clockwise - but slightly concerned that might break it...?) Any suggestions of how to make it 'come out to play'?!

    Have a whirlpool AWO 3551 washing machine. Door locked light flashes and machine stops at random points in the program. Pump works OK and drains water. Don't suspect door lock module as washer works on...

    My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.

    If you have checked all of these then the only other explanation is that the pump motor is faulty and needs replacing or there is a fault with the wiring or Programmer.

    I changed the pump on my Whirlpool washing machine model AWO 3551 but it's still not pumping water. None of the hoses are bocked. What am I missing?

    Are you sure the pump is getting a supply to it?
    Also, the pump iself could be faulty.
    Only way to be sure, is test the pump on a drain cycle, and see if you can hear it going, or test with a meter for voltage. BE CAREFUL

    How do i clean the pump on my whirlpoll awo 3551

    Pump removal: power off, remove cover, locate pump, (attached to other end of drain pipe).undo 2 wiring connections, 2 hose connections, and pump mounting screws. Remove pump chamber - some are held in with screws, others clip into place. Check for foreign objects round the impeller. If pump chamber is clear, may be a fault with the pump motor - in which case, replace.
