Ok, inside the Door, there is a switch, mechanism, that "Tells" the "Brain" if it is open or closed. Depending on the "State" of the door, the machine, will or will not do certain actions. If need to be replaced it is an easy job. To undertake this task, you need to get a Service Manual, your your exact make and model. When the Door Switch goes faulty, the "Brain" can "Sense" this and will then give an "Error Code" Sometimes it is NOT the switch, but the "Brain" itself, is faulty, the Only way to tell, is to swap out the old switch for a new one, if still "Faulty" then it will be the "Brain" that's faulty instead.

What does e 62 error code refer to?


E62: Overheating during washing this is real ans now iam giving u more tips abt error -
E11: Difficulty in filling during wash phase
E13: Water leakage.
E21: Difficulties in draining .
E23: Malfunction of drain pump triac.
E24: «sensing» circuit of the component (triac) that controls the drain pump faulty
E33: Incongruence between closure of anti-boiling and 1st level contacts of pressure switch
E35: Water level too high
E36: «sensing» circuit of anti-boiling pressure switch faulty
E37: «sensing» circuit of 1st level pressure switch faulty
E39: "HV" «sensing» circuit of anti-overflow pressure switch faulty
E40: Door open, Interlock, wiring or main PCB
E41: Door open
E41: Problems with aperture of door
E42: Problems with aperture of the door
E42: Problems with aperture of the door

E97: Incongruence between selector version and configuration data
EA1: Drum positioning system (DSP) faulty (top-loaders only)
EB1: Incorrect mains frequency
EB2: Mains voltage too high
EB3: Mains voltage too low

E32 INCORRECT CALIBRATION OF ANALOGIC (ELECTRONIC) PRESSURE SWITCH. IF THE MACHINE IS DRAINING OK, THEN IT IS THE SWITCH
E32 relates to the electronic pressure switch, normal pressure switch,inlet valves,poor water mains pressure and finally the main control board
E90 means theres a fault on the main control module so A;will need a new control module or B; get an engineer to try re-configureing the module

FL keeps coming up on machine


The "FL" is indicating that the door has failed to lock or it locked but the control does not sense the door has locked.

It could be caused by:

  • faulty door lock solenoid
  • loose wire connection
  • faulty door lock switch
  • faulty door lock sense switch
  • bad control board

Doorlocks dont work except from passenger side. mirrors dont work. windows dont work from anywhere


First, check all fuses to make sure that none are blown.

If the door lock switch works on the passenger side, then the drivers side door lock switch is probably faulty. Use a multi-meter to test the Drivers Side Door Lock Switch (Black and Pink/Light Green wires unlock the vehicle, and the Black and Pink/Yellow wires lock the vehicle)
If the switch is tested and found to be operating properly, you may have a faulty Body Security Module or Drivers Side Door Lock Actuator.

If neither of your Power Mirrors are working, you probably have a faulty Exterior Rear View Mirror Switch, Power Mirror Module, or blown Central Junction Box Fuse.

If none of your Power Windows are working, you probably have a faulty Accessory Delay Relay or a blown fuse in your Central Junction Box or a faulty Master Window Adjust Switch (all of the Power Window Switches feed through this Master Window Switch). If the Power Windows didn't stop working at the same time, you may have faulty Window Adjust Switches, or faulty Power Window Motors, this is very unlikely though. It would also be a good idea to inspect the wiring for any obvious damage.

The door ajar keeps going off


Hi!!

Check all the door switches, one of your doors is not shutting tight or the switch is faulty. While sombody is in the driver's seat with the motor running, push and pull the door to detect the faulty door switch. Once you find faulty door, open it up and press switch to find out if it is the switch or the door latch needs adjustment. Usually the sliding side door is the one with this type of problem.

Don't forget to rate this answer, Good Luck.
