Hi, I've been double checking the fault codes for you and it seems the 'control unit' is faulty.
Fault code 16 and above point towards a control unit failure.
I'm not sure how moving the machine could have caused it to fail.
Sorry but hope this helps.
I wonder if you switch it off, (un-plug it) confirm you have no kinked hoses and re try it. Worth a go maybe.

This means thatthere is a controller board failure and the remedyis to replace the controller board. Thhis could mean that a connector has become disloged by movingthe machine so cheack every connector to make sure it is fitted correctly.

What does an OE error msg mean and how do you fix this


something is blocking the pump.unplug first.take drain hose and hold down at floor level with a container to catch water.it may be a coin or a wire from a bra,hair bobble etc feel in the pump to see if the impeller is free to move.if it is then suspect something in the hose between drum and pump like a sock.that restricts flow enough to put up fault code

My washer won't spin it fills with weather then flashed f16 !!! Help what does this mean


First of all check your hose is clear of any blockage, it also could be something blocking the hoses going to the pump, check the little drawer too (empty it) should be at the bottom of the washing machine, can you hear the pump trying to kick in? as if it's trying to drain? the pump may need replaced for draining the water after the spin cycle, I had the same symptom on my own washing machine, replaced the pump and it's been working fine ever since. You could e-mail the manufacurer too, they can tell you which service error code this F16 is - as I do not know the manufuturer or model of your washing machine as you did not mention then I wouldn't know exactly why this

What do's f16 mean on the bosch classixx 6 1200 mean


F16 is a door fault, could be the door is not tightly closed before pressing start, the lock is faulty so the machine is not registering that it is closed or the wiring connection to the door lock is loose.

H20 is showing on the display screen of my hotpoint washing machine. I'm aware this means water but I'm wondering why this is displayed?


Possible that there is no INLET pressure or water flow to the machine, check the inlet filter and valve, check for good flow to the valve if the hose is disconnected. If not it needs to be checked if the panel board is showing error due to memory fault..

I have a Bosch Logixx 8 washing machine showing error code 34. What does this mean?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Same as 'F16', 'F34' stands for 'door lock (fault)' ;-0)

This is indicating that there is a problem either with the door lock or the door locked sensor requiring a service call, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
