Question about Washing Machines
F28 is a SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR.
Given the intermittent nature of the problem it is highly possible that this error is caused by a loose connection on the serial wiring of the machine. You can check these connections over yourself.
There are other possible causes however and I have listed what the technical repair manual says about it below.
F-28 SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR
The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and
the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
– Check connections of the CCU board within the housing.
– Make sure all grounding switches are engaged.
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted
upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing
the MCU connectors.
Hope this helps. Please do remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.
