Question about Washing Machines

Westinghouse Washing Machine Model LF700B

Starts ok but about 20 to 30 seconds into the cycle the LED panel starts flashing 'HE' and beeping and the cycle stops. I believe this means that the water is not heating, but I do all washes in cold water. Any suggestions greatfully received. Thanks Tracey

    Thanks heaps - now.......Can I bypass the "thermistor" as I would assume that it is only required for warm/hot washes?

    Anyone got a PCB or photo of what or where the thermistor is?

The thermistor (witch senses water temp) is most likely faulty and needs replacing

  • anonymous111 Feb 19, 2008

    no you cant bypass the thermistor, the electronic control board relies on what ohm reading it is, as to what temp the water is. if you bypass it you will get the same error code. there is a slight chance that the control board itself could be faulty but is more likely the thermistor. if you take an ohm reading of the themistor you should get something like this
    6.1-3.8 kω (at room temperature20 – 30°C)

    if not , its faulty

My Electrolux EDV 605clothes dryer is turning but not heating, heating element is ok possible faulty thermistor, dryer heats up when thermistor is unplugged but has an error code of 5 beeps


I think you're absolutely right exhaust sensor is faulty.

The buzzer will give 5 beeps, all program LEDs will flash for 5 seconds and the dryer will continue with the cycle. The warning beeps and flashing LEDs will occur every 30 seconds.
On Timer Drying programs it will run for the time remaining and in Sensor Drying programs it will run for 90 minutes. As the exhaust air temperature can not be sensed the element will be cycled on and off at a preset amount. The cycling time of the element will vary depending on the amount of time remaining.

NOTE: When this fault exists the dryer can still be used but regardless of the Sensor Drying program selected the dryer will use the 90 minute Timer Drying program, Timer Drying programs will use the selected program, and with both types of programs the element will cycle as above. The buzzer will also still be sounding.

If an exhaust sensor fault is detected the buzzer will beep and the Reminder Clean the Filter LED will flash. The LED flashes at different rates depending what is wrong with the sensor -

Fast (4 per second) = open circuit senor, broken wiring or multi pin plug not correctly fitted to the control board.
Slow (2 per second) = Short circuit in sensor or wiring.

The sensor resistance at different temperatures is as shown below.

Temperature (Celsius) Resistence (Ohms)
55 2960
50 3570
45 4330
40 5280
35 6490
30 8030
25 10000
20 12555
15 15880
10 20260
5 26080
0 33870

As you can see this is NTC thermistor with Negative Temperature Coefficient , means if temperature increasing the resistance decreasing.

Why my washing machine will start the wash cycle but will not spin or rinse?


the drain pump is probably blocked or overheating, when it starts beeping which lights are flashing reading from right to left e.g. 1,3,5 also what is the model number?

Why my AEG F55080vi stops after drain cycle (program beginning) and then it stops and I hear 2 beeps and 2 flash continuously?


Definitely, water drain time-out. Error code i20.
The pressure switch doesn't return to EMPTY (1-2) after two drain phases lasting 120 seconds.
Possible causes:
Drain circuit obstructed/blocked; drain pump
interrupted or jammed (foreign bodies); level
pressure switch blocked on FULL (1-3); hydraulic
circuit of pressure switch obstructed; wiring faulty;
circuit board faulty.

Thanks to your detailed description of failure I conclude that in drain phase (after starts drain pump) leaks water and causing a short circuit. I would thoroughly reviewed drain hydraulic circuit. If is alarm displayed and there is no water inside dishwasher then check heater and anti-interference suppressor.

What is Error Code "F6E1"


I had the f6 e1 code flashing on Whirlpool Duet washer. It would stop midcycle and beep. I cleaned out the lint filter. This seemed to help but gradually the problem got worse. I cleaned filter again. Still beeping. I read more solution and finally found the answer! I never put the cover back on. There is a switch on the left bottom that is held in by the cover. Works fine now!

Zanussi ZDT6252 stops 1min into cycle


You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.

Indesit DV620 Dishwasher


You have a internal leak in the dishwasher...there is a safety float system in the base (below where you put the dishes in!) of the unit, which in the event of water in the base will stop the cycle and activate the drain pump continiously.... You will have to open the unit and find the leak. Don't know these models, but usually you have to remove side panels and front panel, drain water from the base and re-start....then check with flashlight where the leak is. Oshie
