CE Communications Error If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, CE flashes and the unit beeps once.
This can be caused by corroded pins on the control card or motor control. Most of the time this relates to a faulty machine control card.

I have automatic hitachi washing mashine 110Q it has an error f9 what does it mean plz?


"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem yourself:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608557-f09_error_code

Read through the information provided and check all the common sense things that you can easily eliminate, first. For more in-depth troubleshooting procedures, refer to the tech sheet that came with your washer. The tech sheet is located inside your appliance. To access, remove the lower toe panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge (you may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access - a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

The tech sheet will either be located directly behind the toe panel, or affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes troubleshooting tips, error code definitions, test points, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. You will need to use the tech sheet to accurately locate and perform some of the steps I have outlined. F09 Error Code Fixya

F50 keep's appearing as an error code on my cabrio top load washer. The drum won't completely drain of water and i removed a sock blocking the drain hole but I still have the same issue. any help wou


The F50 code, indicates, the machine control board(in the console) is not seeing a proper input from the RPS sensor(motor).

If you're sure there is nothing between the two tubs( as you noted before,it doesn't take much to slow/stall the motor).

The problem would be in the Rotary position switch or harness.

check before ordering an RPS board. The F50 is usually associated with a motor or motor controller (main board) failure, but I have also seen it caused by a faulty wiring harness, or even something as simple as a sock stuck between the basket and the tub. I am not aware of the RPS needing to be changed together with the new board as they are not 'matched' components. My suggestion would be to make sure the tech is following the test procedures as outlined by Whirlpool, or get the tech sheet out and do them yourself. Based on the part list, the possible parts are well under $500 so you may be able to fix it yourself IF U WANT TO INVEST THAT MUCH and send the tech packing.

CE Communications ErrorIf there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, CE flashes and the unit beeps once.


Some common causes of CE errors include:

· Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.

· Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.

· Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a CE error will occur.

· Drive motor thermal protector has opened.

·Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.

Kenmore Elite HE3 "QuietPak" Washer 7 years old. The water does not enter come the tub; instead there is a buzzing noise and then lighted panel reads a flashing "H" followed by a flashing "F".


Your water valves could be faulty or no power to the valves to open them to allow water flow. You can test power to them with a voltmeter. if there is power, the valves are probably bad. If not power, trace the wires to the source, probably control board.

I have a Ce error


This is called a communications error, to access the tech sheet, pop the plastic "calypso" cover. remove the screw behind and lift the top. Sheet is on inside of front panel. Will require meter tests, but usually indicates a bad motor control bd. First try unplugging for a few minutes, cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Clothes washer won't drain - digital display shows LD


looking at the tech sheet for this, it appears to be a standard whirlpool top load but with electronic controls, correct? normalling with this type a lid switch is the issue but the electronics would have a different code for this, LD is Long Drain for this model. suspect a transmission but this should help you troubleshoot. go to www.servicematters.com and click technical reference - tech library - tech sheets, enter model minus 110.prefix. this will show tech sheet with diagnostics. this book can also be found inside your console.

"CE" is a communications error between the motor controller and machine controller. This could be a simple problem of just a dirty contact, or it could be something more significant like a wiring harness or control board. There should be a tech sheet inside your washer on the front casing beside the wash tub. You will need to lift the top of the casing up to get to it. In order to do so, you will need to find the two retaining clips holding the top down. Insert a putty knife about 2 inches in from each side along the front seam and push in while lifting up. This will release the top and it will open up. Hold on the the lid as you lift the top as it will want to fall open. The tech sheet should be sealed in plastic on the casing. The troubleshooting steps, along with illustrations are all in this sheet. Both control boards are located inside the top console. Simply remove the screws along the back of the console to remove. Make sure you unplug the washer before attempting any readings. Use care when removing any of the wire connectors or handling the control boards. The wires, as well as, the control boards are delicate. If you do not have a tech sheet, let me know and I will guide you through the necessary steps to troubleshoot. I hope this helps.
