Upside down backwards fE comes on. We had a repair man tell us it was the pcb board. WE replaced it and it is still doing the same thing? What would you suggest next

    This wasn't helpful because it isn't an FE it is a backwards upside down FE I don't know how else to write that. I have changed the PCB board and the Hull sensor and still getting the same thing. It seems to have problems in the spin cycle.

The error code FE refers to the fact that water is overflowing ( normally means the inlet water valve is stuck open and continues to let in water beyond the expected and/or sensed level.. so the water pump turns on to drain it and keep the level down. This kind of problem would probably warrant a aservice call from a tech since the majority of troubleshooting would require diagnosing the failed component itself and is not something that I recommend you try. There are too many pieces of hardware that have a direct impact on how this works and I highly doubt you want to play the shotgun approach..try this to see if it fixes the problem and if not..try that...

Before calling for service.. try this..

remove or disconect ac power from the washer..let it sit unplugged for at least an hour..then try washing 1 towel at the lowest cold water setting to see if that works ..if it does..repeat the process using only hot water.. if that works... then try the same test using warm water.. ( this test may help determine if the water inlet valve .,.either hot or cold is leaking through it)...
If you still get the FE test..call for service..

BTW..if only one of the two tests fails.. ( Hot water only generates an FE error.. then chances are the hot water inlet solenoid valve assembly is either sticking open or the controls to that are commanding it to remain open.

    WHooaaa...I just checked the error code again to make sure and it's actually and FE error (actually an upside down 'F' as the first letter - according to a manual says it's the THERMISTOR is out of order.



    That code is a heating error - thermistor



    You can check to see if the wiring to the heater and quick connect plugs to thermister are ok.



    Those parts can be changed by you if you took the back and motor off

1998 vw cd changer reads "chk magazine" or"cd err" help!


Unplug it for about 5 minutes and plug it back in and pray to the vw cd changer Gods to allow it to play again.. By unplugging the unit AT THE UNIT will result in a hard Boot. Now if it is still not happening than it's time to call the repair man, also be sure the magazine is inserted correctly. I couldn't tell you how many customers came in with the magazine upside down, *** backwards, cds loaded upside down, etc but try unplugging it 1st. good luck. but let me ask you why you messing with a changer when you probably don't own but 4 cd's and all your music is on your iPod??
