CE Communications ErrorIf there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, CE flashes and the unit beeps once.


Some common causes of CE errors include:

· Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.

· Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.

· Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a CE error will occur.

· Drive motor thermal protector has opened.

·Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.

Flashing CE CODE


try to clear error code

Tip

Whirlpool Calypso Washing Machine Error Code Explanations And Repair


Failure - Code Condition - Check/Repair

PF - Power Failure - PF flashes if the washer loses power during a running cycle. The washer does not flash PF when it is first plugged in.

Press START to continue the cycle from the moment that power was lost -OR- Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display and completely cancel the cycle.

FL - Flood Condition - FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed.

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

ER - Processor Reset Error - This error code is displayed if the control failed to save cycle information during a power failure. This does not generate an error code beep.

LF - Long Fill - If the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed.

CE - Communications Error - If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor controller, CE flashes and the unit beeps once.

Some common causes of CE errors include:
  • Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating off the pins.
  • Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.
  • Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked up properly or a CE error will occur.
  • Drive motor thermal protector has opened.
  • Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.

LD - Long Drain - LD flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets.

CA or CL - Average current limit or Instantaneous current limit - If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and display either CA for average current limit trip or CL for instantaneous current limit trip.

  • Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings.
  • Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings. This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.

OB - Off Balance - If the motor controller detects an unrecoverable off-balance condition, the machine controller will shut down and display an OB for Off Balance.

The lid switch must be opened at least once before restarting the cycle, if this condition occurs. Opening the lid will allow the customer to view and redistribute the load.

SR - Stuck Relay - SR signifies a failure of the relay in the closed position. With this failure, power to the motor controller cannot be turned off by the machine controller.

The machine control board may have a bad relay and may need to be replaced. Check pins 1 and 5 of P16 of the machine controller and pins 1 and 2 of P1 of the motor controller. This should have AC line voltage when the motor controller is powered.

LS - Lid Switch Error - The control should flash this error code if it cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly. This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the stat if the lid switch. The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition.

This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open.

Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

My dishwasher starts ok then stops 2 flashing lights appear on control panel does anyone know why


Possible that the inlet valve, inlet filter is clogged and so there is low pressure or flow of water into the washer. Secondly the water level sensor can be faulty and so since there is no detection the processor is shut down..

Caliypso washer problems


The CL fault indicates that there was an instantaneous current spike of 26 amps at the motor windings in the washer. This could be caused by overloading the washer. It can also be caused by problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or the motor controller.

You should have been able to clear the display by pressing the STOP/CANCEL button.

If you try running the washer again and continue to get this fault code even with a small or medium load, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer.
