It giving me an F22 code, what is that mean and how do I fix it?


"F22" is a door lock error. The washer locks the door at the beginning of the wash cycle. If, after 6 attempts, the door fails to lock, the error code is displayed. You can attempt to correct the problem by perform the following steps:

1. Unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main control board for the washer. Sometimes this is all that is required to correct some common momentary glitches. If the error code reappears after a CCU reset, proceed to step 2.
2. Check the door switch and locking mechanism for any obvious signs of broken or missing parts.
3. Check the wiring harness from the door latch to the CCU. You will need to remove the washer top panel for access. This is accomplished by UNPLUGGING the washer and removing the three screws that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. Verify that the connectors are in place and snug.

If all these preliminary steps still don't fix the problem, the manufacturer recommends replacing the door latch assembly. Replacements can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com. Use the "Search by Part Number" feature and look up part number 8182634.

If you need further assistance, or have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Machine saying close outer door but its closed


I'm not an washing machine engineer but I do tend to do all my own home repairs - had to fix this fault this morning,

Quite easy to fix as long as there are no broken parts in the interlock and the solenoid isn't jammed.

UNPLUG FROM MAINS

Remove the top - 2 Philips or flat blade screws - pull backwards.

Remove front door - large flat blade inserted into gap in lower door hinge at back and gently twist to widen gap while pulling the door forward at bottom.

Remove 4 torx type screws (not sure what size) and 2 long torx screws from behind the hinge.

You may want to remove the coin trap door now - it makes the job of removal and refitting the front panel easier. Remember to put a tray underneath!

Unplug the ribbon connector for the front panel from it's socket and the clips - unplug the little pipe from the middle of the front panel.

Gently lift the front cover pulling the bottom edge forward a bit to ease removal. It is not necessary to fully remove the front panel so you can leave the mains switch connected.

Unhook the emergency release strap from the pivot arm.

2 Torx Screws above and below the door latch hole secure the latch assembly. Unplug the latch from a socket past the little foam block on the front - just inside the machine.

You now have the latch. Operation is quite obvious. The door loop pushes an angled plate that swings a hook into the loop. The solenoid when activated pushes a bar down to lock the hook in place and push down on 2 micro switches wired in series as the interlock.

To strip down the assembly unplug the micro switch plugs and push a small screwdriver into the top and bottom catches.

You can now lubricate the latch and check the function of the micro switches using a meter. They a easily replaced if you can find the correct type. (Unofficially - for a home repair - if one is not working you could always bypass one - but I wouldn't condone that obviously)

If you are careful enough - the operation of the solenoid and latch can be checked and observed by plugging the unit back in and pushing the door loop into the latch - be careful of the exposed wires etc - not sure what voltages are there!!

If it's unservicable then a replacement is about £35 online.

Reassemble in reverse - nothing to point out and is quite straghtforward. Dont forget the little pipe on the back of the control panel - it's easily missed.

Hope this helps.
