Re: Code od

The OD code should mean that the unit did not detect the door open between your loads. Try to open the door and close it a couple of time to see if it will reset itself. If it doesnt reset, then the problem could be one of three things. The first thing is the door latch assembly itself could be defective. Second problem could be the control board is defective, and is not picking up the code. The other could be the wiring itself running between the door and the control board. There really is no way of testing the control board (which is located in the console itself) or the door latch assembly. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE UNIT BEFORE REMOVING ANYTHING PLEASE. This unit has 2 lid locks, left and right. I believe to remove the front panel you put a putty knife between the top and front panel, approx 2 inches in from the sides, and pop the two clips. Lift the top up and support in a safe way (if it swings down and hits you in the head, the door locks wont be a problem for a few hours). Check he wiring in and around the lid locks, the top, and where they pass all along the route to the console. The control boards on these units are very expensive to say the least. The part numbers for each part are:

Control Board Assembly: 25001217 Approx $175 US
Lid Lock Right Hand: 25001037 Approx $ 23 US
Lid Lock Left Hand: 25001048 Approx $ 23 US

Here is a couple of pages with diagrams that may help you a little better:

Front And Cabinet (Note that #14 will be the clips I was telling you about)

Let me know if you have any questions whatsoever. Just take note, that replacing one of these parts on a guess could cost you a lot of money. Pleased try to open and close that lid a couple of times to see if anything changes. And please let me know how it turns out, or if you need ANYTHING at all. Thanks and great luck. Jim

F 01 code comes on when trying to start another load. Pushed the cancel button and the machine shuts off also tried unplugging it and that does not work either

F1 error means a communication error, if you unplugged it, for more then 2 mins that should have work, but you also have to verify ccu operation by running a diagnostic test

Pushing Start Button only results in "Beep, beep, beep"

Need to check that the lid is shut properly and the door is locking. You don't mention an error code in the display. Make sure there isn't one showing.
