    The drain seems fine. I may have gotten it a little too sudsy. But I can't check to see if the drain will work because there is something wrong with the locking mechanism and it will not start a cycle. The lock keeps locking and unlocking. I get the message F: dL. What should I do?

The code F02 indicates along drain error and the door will not definitely unlock to prevent flooding. Check the drain hose for kinks and clogs, clear the pump filter and check the pump impeller.

The FdL code indicates a door lock error. The door lock and switch assembly is broken or its connection to the machine control is loose. Check the connection between the two and make sure it is good and snug fit. Replace the door lock and switch assembly if the code still persists. Specify the exact model of the washer for specific and accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F/02 error means Long Drain. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

    Error FDL means a Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot
    be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code.





    It has occurred due to


    1. Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.


    2. Door switch/lock unit failure. To unlock it follow the
    steps—


    a. Unplug washer or disconnect power.


    b. Check door switch/lock unit.


    c. Check the wire harness connections to the door
    switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).

    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Thanks

My indesit iwc6105 washing machine is not draining at all.


see this causes: and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump If the washer won't drain the pump belt might have broken or might have worn out. Check the belt and replace if it shows signs of excessive wear.

Drain Pump If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

Clogged Pump or Hose If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Drive Belt If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all.

Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Drain Hose If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions.

Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out

Error 0E


It sounds like your water inlet valve is stuck open. You have two on this machine, a hot water and a cold water assembly. You should be able to tell which was stuck from the temperature of the water spilling out.

It is an easy fix. To replace it you take off the top by removing the screws at the rear and pulling back on the top. Unhook the hose to the drain pump and drain the water out of your machine. The door lock on this model is likely set so that you cannot open the door if water is in the machine (they don't want you to flood yourself, but its a little too late for you) You can now access and remove and replace the faulty valve.

Put things back together, but leave the top off and see if the machine will start up and the door will open. If your door is still locked you should be able to reach down and find a pull tab around the door lock assembly. Pull gently on this and it should release the door.

After up get it back together and drained of water hopefully the error message will clear itself and you will be back in business.

Samsung washing machine wf7604naw door is stuck and the lock sign won't go away- how do i force the door to open- my cloths are locked inside


It can be the door lock servo which is a ****** to reach or tamper with as it's a sealed unit, I sorted mine by draining via the filter port at the bottom right front behind the rectangular front panel ( this will normally fill a small saucepan half way when machine is level which is the best way to drain although you will be using a cellulose sponge to soak the water from the floor rather than directly into the pan) then tilting from the front 45 degrees or more backwards. This all being done with power off and water inlet pipe disconnected as this can and will snap readily. Having rested back down to a level try the door again and smile.

Hi, I have a zanussi wwashing machine model= ghg1200apm. The door won't open. I plugged out the machine after the wash and when i plugged it in again, the door wont open. Can you help me?


Hi.

The door does not open because there is water inside the machine. To open the door you need to empty the tub first.

To empty the tub disconnect power, open the door at the bottom of the machine's front side, unscrew the drain filter cap and collect water using a container.

Usually that is enough to allow the door to open. If the door does not get released, try running a cycle again.

If still no luck, then the door is locked either because the pressure switch detecting water level is clogged with soap or because the power surge has damaged some component. In that case the machine must be partially disassembled to reach the back of the door opening mechanism. The door latch is reachable either from drain filter access or from top of the appliance.

Emptying water through the drain filter and/or restarting a cycle usually is enough to release the door lock.

Regards.

Won't finish the wash cycle and flashes the code F 02


This code means that the machine is not evacuating its water.

F/02 Long Drain
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

Hi, I have an LG 1412RD washer dryer. I received the DE error message so opened the front to access the door lock and plugged in the electric socket which seemed loose. Now I am getting the OE message...


http://www.lg.com/au/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=WD-1412RD&matchedModelCode=NOT_MATCHED&searchEngineModelCode=WD-1412RD&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile#
Owners manual above. LG washing machine error code – OEThe LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn’t pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer door will not open


The error code F-02 on the Kenmore HE3 means that the drain pump could not pump out all the water within 8 minutes. Not sure what this has to do with the door being locked,, but its also possible that if the machine thinks there is still water in the drum, or if in fact there is still water in the drum that it would keep the door locked as some sort of safety precaution
