Question about LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

F1 error The washer has been acting weird a couple of times this week and I thought maybe the kids had tried to do a load and messed it up but they swear they didn't. I washed three shirts yesterday and went to get them out and an F1 error code was flashing and I could not open the door. I got it to remember where it left off (25 minutes left on the spin) and told it to do it again. I went to get it out today and same error with all the lights flashing. I cannot find my book to figure out what to do.

Maytag A183 and it will randomly fill up with water. We won't use the washer for a day or two and it will have several inches of water in it. We have to turn the spin cycle on to get the water out. It...

you have a leaking water supply valve that is allowing water into the tub while not running-try unplugging the power when not using and see if it still happens-this would eliminate a problem with the controls messing up-if its still doing it you could shut the water off at the wall between loads and replace the water control valve at your leisure-cheers Denny

Maytag Bravos error code f1

F1 is a very bad error unfortunately. Try unplugging the unit 60 seconds to see if it will reset the control board. If not, then you will need a new relay control board which is about $200, because F1 means that the board has detected an internal short inside the control board itself.

LE is a locked motor error. Not to worry as 95% of the time it is just a bad hall sensor (the motor position sensor). For your model the part number is 6501KW2002A.

Whirlpool Cabrio top loading washer F1 Error

F1 means the control board is shot. Call whirlpool and they should take care of the parts and labor even though your machine is out of warranty.

I'm getting the OE code and I've done the the line purge and filter clean a couple of time but I keep getting the error after the wash cycle when the machine try to drain the water I have an LG WM2701H8

try cutting way way down on your soap
front load washers seem to exhibit weird problems when oversoaping occurs
try one load with no soap at all
and then try using 1 tablspoon per load
barring that you may have a clogged pump

Mildew odour from Whirlpool Duet washer.

I've had this problem a couple of times over the years I've had this washer. What caused the odour in my machine was one (or more) of my kids' socks getting stuck in the machine. With the door open, gently reach in and bend the grey rubber door seal back and feel for clothes that have slipped between the drum and the rubber. If there's nothing there and it has been smelling bad for a while, then it's likely that the socks have been sucked into the drain. To clear this without paying a $150 service charge (I did that the first time and watched him fix it in 10 minutes), you'll need to remove the bottom front plate of the washer (there are only three or four Torx -or star head- screws holding it on). Once that plate is off, you'll see a white plastic knob that is the cap of the drain trap. Unscrew the cap and a couple of cups of water will leak out so shove a couple of towels under it beforehand. You should find some long-lost now-rotting socks. The last time I had to do this, I found FOUR socks in there. This also contributes to the 'suds' error message as it prevents proper drainage. I've only had this problem with kids' socks, everything else is too big to get stuck, I guess. Maybe try a laundry bag for the smaller stuff.

Whirlpool duet front load washer.

Hmmm... I thought there were two keys that, when pushed together, lock the controls so that no one (kids) can mess with it while it is running. Maybe I am thinking of LGs.

Check this out though... might help
