This problem is quite common on these machines, especially just after the machine has been moved. As a previous poster has said, Err 7 is a motor error. It is usually because the electrical connector has become detatched from the motor. Here is how to fix it.

* First of all, PLEASE unplug the machine from the wall socket! And switch off the water supply too!
* Pull the machine out from under the counter, and turn it so that you have access to the back of the machine.
* Remove the 3 phillips screws that secure the back plate. You are only removing the small plate immediately behind the drum, not the whole back panel!
* Look through the hole you have just created by removing the panel down towards the bottom of the machine. You will see the motor. Hopefully you will also see a 7 way connector not connected to anything, and a 7-way socket on the motor! (7 way means that it connects 7 different wires!)
* Plug the connector back on to the motor. Don't worry, it will only go one way round, so you can't get it wrong. If the connector looks like it is connected, give it a little wiggle and a push to make sure it is fully home.
* Replace the the small back panel, taking note that the top of the panel goes BEHIND the main back panel, and the bottom of it goes IN FRONT of the main panel. (This could be the other way round, I can't remember!)
* Push the machine back under the counter, making sure that it is level (level it up by turning the 2 feet at the front of the machine until it doesn't wobble), reconnect the water and plug it in to the electricity supply.
* Turn the machine on and attempt to operate the machine. (Top Tip: Select the wool or quick wash to test the machine, otherwise you will have to wait 3.5 hrs for the machine to go through a cotton/linen wash! Unplugging the machine won't help, because it remembers where it was when it gets a power cut!)
hope this helps

    if the motor connector is seated properly and the connection is assured then you would test the motor if the harness were not the cause this error is mainly either from the harness or the motor showing the fault if you have tested the harness for continuity also at all ends of the harness and found no faults with the harness you may end up having to replace the motor Thanks again for using Fixya Rick
    p.s with a few coins coming out you may have burnt out the motor I await your reply Thanks Rick

It is not draining the water out it is a haier hw-c1460tveme-0

Hi, you can drain the water by disconnecting the grey empty hose putting the end in a bucket and lowering the pipe flat and below the tub level, the water will empty under gravity into the bucket.

When its empty CLICK HERE to follow the instructions ho how to check and empty the filter of any debris, then try the machine again, is it still does not empty then suspect pump failure.

hope this helps.

Error code Unb: After the last rinse finishes, spinning fails completely due to unbalanced of the laundry (What does this mean) and How do I clear the error. Machine does not spin the clothes.Every thing...

I have had the same problem with the same model and rang up the help line to be told that the machine cannot sense the clothes in the drum. I tilted the machine forward and this worked for a while, sometimes i have to unplug at the wall so there is no electricity flowing through the machine for an hour and it resets itself,. Its not adequate but it works.

My Haier HW-C1460TVE-U washing m/c keeps giving (CLrF) ERROR Code

Anyway, my machine shows an error code "clrf". I just spoke to someone at Comet, and apparently this means there is too much foam in the machine. The machine will then refill with water and try to rinse it out, but if after that the machine still has too much foam in, then it will stop the cycle. Hence why my clothes are still wet (although I'd not realised they weren't rinsed properly either!).

I have not been using excessive amounts of washing powder, and usually use powder tablets or the liquid tablet sort, so they are a set amount and I don't do anything daft like stick 6 tablets in! I find it ridiculous that this would cause a problem with the washing machine, as I've used them perfectly fine with other washing machines.

Anyway, the advice from Comet was to keep trying different washing powders until i find one that foams less.

It is a task that you might not want to tackle. You might be better off to have it serviced to keep your sanity.

Err1 : Door not properly shut
Err2 : Drainage error (clean filter check hose
Err3 : temperature sensor short circuit
Err4 : Heater error
Err5 : water fails to meet specified level within 8 mins check tap, water pressure
Err6 : motor error
Err7 : motor error
Err8 : water exceeds protective level check circuit
End : end of wash cycle
Unb : after the last rinsing cycle finishes spinning fails completelt due to unbalance of the laundry

only reason I know is i looked through the manual after getting it myself could be something to do with running a bath while washer on or something perhaps not enough water getting in if powder channel blocked
