Re: zunnussi f1226 problem

The first thing to attempt for the F01 error is...

Reset it : hold the 'start' button until all lights displayed, then press 'start' again.
Hold the 'start' and 'on/off' button together until it reads d-end or d-off.
It doesnt always work 1st time so keep trying.

F 01 is actually a shorted motor triac. You'll need a new pcb. (Primary Control Board)
Your machine may not have been the cheapest but all Hotpoint electronics hold much the same quality...questionable at best.

A few more things to do before trashing it....

- unplug the washer power supply, close the water valves.
- unscrew two screws that hold the control panel.
- remove the panel - you need the lid to be semi-opened.
- Disconnect and re-connect all connectors to fix any possible oxidation or loosensess - then try the washer

- On the right panel - unscrew the right screw (when standing in front of the washer)
- unscrew all four screws hidden under the bottom cover in the front of the washer that hides also the filter (those still hold the side cover)
- unscrew two more screws at the top back of the washer - they hold the circuit board to the washer body - it needs to be loose
- by pulling the top side of the washer up by the lid and pushing the side cover away "to the back" (with a screwdriver), see how the side cover is held by the top, remove the side cover
- observed the motor and immediately saw heavy corrosion at the ground connection (yellow-green wire) at the motor board and possible slight oxidation at one other connetion of the black wire
- using sand paper and screwdriver clean the contact together with the connector and try the washer

- clean the black wire connection with the same way
- try the washer (spinning program) and hope it works!!

- Empty the drain pipe out - if there is an obstruction... it may cause the motor to overheat and throw you this code.

- try unplugging the black wire and running the spinning program - both the motor AND the pump shouldnt start.

The problem may be in an oxidation of the black wire connection - that is apparently a power supply for both the pump and the motor.
That will cause insufficient voltage and thus a power for the motor but probably still enough for the pump.
The randomness of the problem is probably caused by humidity in the room and maybe some more factors.

The washer is actually opened from the bottom so when you test the washer more times and find a solution, it may be best to cover the connetors with silicon to avoid corrosion or oxidation in the future.

Here are also some tips for putting all together:

When removing the side cover something fell from it inside.
It was a plastic lath that is placed on the nearer edge of the cover and fits both onto the edge of the cover and the adjacent edge of the washer.
It's a bit tricky to put it all back plus there is a plastic piece at the bottom of the side cover that is fixed there also very loosely and keeps falling inside when srewing the filter side screws - but this can be fixed with pliers adjusting the edge of the side cover to make the plastic to fit there tightly.

I'm optimistic one of these solutions will do the trick - try unplugging/re-plugging first.

We are using our Electrolux/Simpson Ezi Sensor washing

also have the same machine - if you wash with the eco rinse the clothes will ALWAYS have the soap residue on them and if you use the deep rinse then this machine will just sit there doing the very occasional agitate for up to 6 hours - can't win - have only just hung out a load and as usual there are many many dry spots on the sheets which is a daily occurence - really hate this machine and it's so called u-beaut functions -

Simpson washing machine leaves white marks on clothes . It isnt the filter as it was just purchased a couple of months ago. We are using recommended detergent as well

The transmission is leaking the grease out of it.
It comes in from in under the adgetator not spelled right. But that is where it is coming from.
If it is 5 years or more just get another one.

Washer is turning my white clothes gray

Oil from transmission is a good possibility. The machine is still young but sounds like you do a lot with the washer. Better have a friend that don't mind looking it over, make sure that's oil and go from there!

Would suggest doing a full hot empty load, using bleach according to bottle instructions. It sounds like a build up of scum from washing powder, fibre from clothing etc. Can also be caused by overuse of fabric conditioner.

Musty smell, but can't tell from where

I have the same problem with a 3 month old ge front loading washer.after 1 month it started off smelling musty..I thought it was my imagination, now at 3 months old our clothes smell so bad I think we might just have to buy new clothes! everytime I wash a load the clothes smell worse and now you can even smell it just walking into our closet 2 floors up. A new washing washing machine should NOT be doing this! so far leaving the door open in between washes has helped a little but I plan on tipping it back and finding the hidden filter today. Isn't it lovely that they don't mention a filter that needs monthly cleaning or it's location in the manuals?!

Clothes still wet washing on Maytag neptune

Your pump, or the hose between the pump and drum, might be clogged.  Could be spare change from unemptied pockets.
