Hello - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.
error code indicates that an unbalanced load is detected. if
the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while attempting to
balance the load at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the
code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has
stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press Start/Pause. If
the washer is not level, the washer may be more sensitive to
unbalanced loads. The washer must be level from side to side and from front to
back. The front and rear feet must be in firm contact with the
floor. Make sure the locknuts are tightened. If
Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for
one minute. Plug
in the washer or reconnect the power. Re-select
the cycle and press Start/Pause.
f22 is a door lock error try this hit cancel turn your dial to another setting, hit start and once it starts hit cancel again and it should unlock. thats what i did anyway. If you're getting an F22 error, you will want to check anything to do with the door latch switch.
This error code indicates that the door is not locking. Is the washer door firmly shut?
The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it. Were you washing a large load?
Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed. To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:
Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.
