Hi,

The reason for "F 20" is that while there is "NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING MACHINE OR PRESSURE SWITCH TRIP NOT DETECTED." If after 30 seconds not minimum 0.1l of water entered or maximum fill time of 13 minutes is exceeded, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
The possible fix for this problem is:
If there is no water in the unit: Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves.
Verify inlet valve operation.

If there is water in the unit: Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
properly connected to tub and pressure switch.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, flow meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Verify pressure switch operation.
7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and measuring the resistance.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.



Thank you

Did you get an error code? Also, take a wet-dry vac and **** the drain line. Sometimes there will be a blockage there as well. Have you checked the door switch for continuity?

Washer stops and F 51 flashs


Hello, It is a rotor position sensor code. The control is no longer receiving a signal from the motor. It can be a failed sensor or control, but usually it is a bad connection where the wires plug on to the sensor.
Thanks

Musty smell


This problem is caused because the water does not get totally pumped out of the outer tub and sits in the bottom of the tub and in the front seals. Eventually a mildew type scum develops and causes the washer to stink and also impart the odor to clothes. Even though front loaders do use less water and energy, all of them have essentially the same design and therefore all will eventually develop this problem.
Run a load with just bleach (about 1 cup) and white vinegar (about 1 1/2 cups) poured directly into the washer with hot water and it seemed to help, but this does need to be repeated about once a month or so...

but with your wife's Asthma tho you could try
Typically the cause is the machine itself, but occasionally the water being used in the washer can be the source of the problem. If the smell resembles rotten eggs, you may need a water filtration system installed. After you eliminate any other possibilities, you can begin the treatment process. Create a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. Add 1/2 cup of baking soda to 2 cups of white distilled vinegar. 3Begin a wash cycle using the machine’s hottest setting. As the water rises, add the baking soda and vinegar mixture. Let the washing machine complete a full cycle. If you notice any residue that has been loosened, use a cloth to wipe the surface clean. Run a cold water cycle to complete the process. You should immediately notice that the smell has been neutralized.

What is kenmore he4t button sequence for


If the washer does not come equipped with a "Clean" cycle, then run the washer on it's hottest setting. "Sanitary" or "Whitest Whites" will do. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool duet front loading washer purchased in 2004, beeps and displays F9 code during whitest white cycle or heavyduty cycle when washing towels, this provokes unusual delays, frustration and ineff


Boyz, your machine is draining too slowly. When it initiates a drain cycle, the water level switch is sensing the water level is still too high after 60 seconds so the computer stops and generates this fault code. Here are the things to check; * Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or inked. * Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU) * Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects * Check for Drain Pump Failure * Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off * Check the Pressure switch for proper operation
