Re: HE3 front load washer
PS you can also place the washer in diagnostics mode to see if the same "F05" error is displayed. To do so, select DRAIN/SPIN, NO SPIN and press any key under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the SAME key, though). "C:00" will be displayed as the washer runs through a series of tests that check the door latch, flow meter, hot and cold water inlets, dispenser, motor actions, drain pump, AND the heater & NTC. The heater and NTC are checked at segment C:05. The washer should advance through all segments and end after C:08. There is a tech sheet inside your washer along one of the side panels that has all this information available to you.

Hello. Noises are common when using a two-in-one washer and dryer, as clicking or whirring is part of the cleaning process during the transition to the next cleaning process. The GE Spacesaver washer and dryer combo uses a top-loading washer stacked beneath the front-loading dryer, and uses an agitator that makes noises throughout the spin cycle. Although whirring or clicking is normal, other noises or malfunction indicates a problem with the washer that requires minor troubleshooting. Professional repair is necessary if the washer continues to experience problems during the spin cycle, as there may be a problem with the washer's agitator. 1 Open the washer's door and check the balance of the load's clothes. Clothes that are unevenly distributed around the agitator cause excessive shaking and result in an imbalance during the spin cycle. Reduce the load's size by removing clothing if the washer's drum is overloaded. 2 Push "Start/Pause" to pause the spin cycle and turn the washer's cycle knob to the "Off" position. Turn the knob to "Spin Only" and press "Start/Pause" to reset the cycle. 3 Turn the wrench counterclockwise or clockwise around the unit's legs to adjust the appliance's balance. The legs are adjustable with the help of a wrench to ensure the unit does not shake while in use. An unleveled unit shakes as it spins, and causes excessive squealing or rattling as it attempts to dry the clothes. 4 Touch "Start/Pause" on the front of the washer's control panel and unplug the washer/dryer unit's power cord from the electric oultlet. Wait two minutes and plug the power cord back into the electric outlet. Push "Start/Pause" to resume the spin cycle. Thanks.
This could be the MCU which on an HE3 2009 3.8 cu ft washer front load appears to be the most common problem. This leads to the F71 because the MCU and the CCU are not able to communicate. Can be accompanied by no lights.
1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws
under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up
the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will
make access to the screws much easier. 2. With the screws removed,
the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a
light tap on either side will knock it loose. 3. Reach your hand up
inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This
is where the door latch assembly is located. 4. At the bottom of the
door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for
the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.
these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error
codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If
you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.
It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing. I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information. RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell. In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I don't know if this will help or not, but my machine has gone through (2) fill valve assemblies so far. In one case, it wouldn't fully shut-off and was also erratic. I replaced it (very easy to do) and that fixed the problem. I think my machine is an HE2, but I'd guess it's probably the same parts... (Parts available through the Sears web site. The last one I bought was around $55 for the assembly.)
