Sounds like the door switch or motherboard is faulty. Try testing the door switch by disconnecting and splicing the wires from door together to read as door being closed. If it still errors then you have a malfunctioning motherboard. I have seen malfunctioning units that were operating near certain elctronics, and or overhead lights, same happened with ovens near airports. Try keeping all other devices and lights off and test unit, sounds weird, but I have seen many weird instances.

Ds codemkeeps coming up even though the door is shut


The "dc" error code indicates an unbalanced load is preventing your washer from spinning properly. Try redistributing the load, then press the Start/Pause button. If the load appears well-distributed, you may need to make adjustments to the leveling legs to make sure the washer is properly leveled, removing the clothes and running a spin only cycle to make the necessary adjustments. Once firmly leveled, be sure the plastic leg locks are tightened to prevent them from vibrating loose.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'door' stands for Door Error. There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

There is a switch that should "close" when the door closes.
But, that switch either is damaged, or it is not sending the "now closed" signal to the printer.

Check that there is no obstruction blocking that switch, nor any dust plugging it up.

Washing machines door open light is on, but door is shut


Found it for myself - F7=motor fault. New motor brushes fixed it. This error code will come up if the motor fails to turn on demand at any point in a program, be it filling, in a wash cycle, or spinning.



Hope That Helped;

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.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. 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.

"door open?" alert will not go away even thought the door is shut firmly is there is nothing blocking the door.


This washer has a built in self diagnostics feature.
What you do is: With the selector knob in the off position, press and hold the "menu & select" buttons, then turn the selector knob to the "permenent press cold" until the display comes on. This puts you in the diagnostics mode, in which the last 8 errors codes will be displayed. At this point the display should read:
START-MENU T1:ERRORS
LA-Er:-------.
It gets a little hard to explain from this point on, but in my case I was able to scroll through the errors using the menu button, and I found that the were 7 errors related to the "FLOW THROUGH SENSOR".
I had already replaced the door latching mechanism without results.
Now I am going to replace the flow through sensor and see if that works, I will let you know what happens.

I have in depth information about the Axxis wfr2460 that will most likely be very helpful to owners of this machine, but I don't know how to attach it to this forum, so if you like, contact me: monahan1958@yahoo.com and I can send you the info that I have found. It explains the whole testing procedure as well as defining the error codes, which may save a lot of frustration in solving your problem.

Error #1203


Error #1203

A 1203 error message on the operator panel could indicate a problem with one of the ink cartridges. Please carry out the steps below the image to confirm that this is a cartridge failure rather than a hardware problem
  1. Make sure the All-In-One is powered on.
  2. Pull the control panel towards you, and then open the cartridge access door. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position.

  3. Pull the old cartridges towards you, and then lift them out.
  4. With the cartridges out of the printer, shut the access door and the control panel.
  5. Power the printer OFF and then back ON.
  6. Check the operator panel to see if the same error has returned or if a new message has appeared.
  7. If the message displayed is 1203, there is something wrong with the printer hardware.
    If the message now displaying is Cartridge Missing, do the following:
    1. Reinstall the cartridges into the printer.
    2. Insert the color cartridge in the left carrier. Insert the black cartridge in the right carrier.
    3. Push back firmly on the cartridges until they snap securely into place.
    4. Close the cartridge access door, and then close the control panel.
    5. If the 1203 message is still present on the operator panel, you need to insert one cartridge at a time to determine which cartridge is producing the failure.
    6. With one cartridge in the carrier, close the access door and control panel.
    7. Check the operator panel. If the 1203 error is displayed, this cartridge is the defective item.
      If the Cartridge Missing message is displayed, the second cartridge is producing the failure.
    8. Please replace the defective cartridge.

E70 error


May 15, 2009

Hello,

I had this exact same problem with my Frigidaire washer (E70) as bubbles100. I called an appliance repairman on 5/14/09 and paid him $60 to tell me my hot and cold water hoses were reversed/not properly installed.

This repairman was the cheapest priced $60 and he would work till he found the problem. I had one appliance repair company wanting to charge me $90 for 30 min and another wanting to charge $120 for 30 min. Hopefully this information can help save the next person some money by trying this first.
