Family error code E60 is visible to customers and (could be E61,E62,E66,E68 and E69 only visible in service mode) means problem with heating phase.
Possible failures : heating element faulty, NTC sensor faulty, PCB faulty, wiring.
E90 is family error code visible to the customers. It is necessary to read the error in the service mode so please proceed with the following procedure for rapid reading of alarm codes:
Press and hold down START/PAUSE and the option button nearest to the START/PAUSE button for at least two seconds!
After that the display will show one of the following errors that are more precise:
E91, E92 - Communication incongruence between main board and display board (versions not compatible). Posible causes: wirings, main board or control/disply board.
E93 - Incorrect configuration of appliance. Posible causes: Incorrect configuration data; electronic board faulty.
E94 - Incorrect configuration of washing cycle.
Posible causes: Incorrect configuration data; electronic board faulty.
E95 - Communication error between microprocessor and
EEPROM. Posible causes: Electronic board faulty.
E97 - Incongruence between programme selector and
cycle configuration. Posible causes: Faulty electronic board (Wrong configuration data).
Considering that this is a complicated fault, my advice is to contact an authorized service center.They have special equipment such as an interface that allows them to upgrade software in your appliance. If you are not doing anything on the appliance before the failure, the only thing you can check is the contacts between wiring and electronics.
E90. The E90 error code is not a common error but it may occur when the washing machine electronics get wet for some reason. This may happen if wet clothes are left in the washer for a prolonged period after the wash cycle ends or if the same load is washed repeatedly.
One of the first steps whenever an error code appears on a Frigidaire washer is to perform a simple reset to the machine. To reset the washer, press and hold the "Cancel" button for 15 seconds. Then try to set a new wash cycle and press "Start." Note that any clothes that have finished washing should always be removed promptly after the cycle is done.
An E90 error indicates some sort of communication error between the two boards that control the washer. Usually it's a problem with the wiring. (At least for Electrolux and related washers, E90 is a communication error.)
You can try unplugging the washer overnight and then trying again. This resets the board. Otherwise, you need to open the washer and use an electrical contact cleaner. Check all the wiring for any corrosion or solder issues. This will be time consuming.
Alternatively, you could replace both control boards (usually comes a large fraction of the cost of a new washer when you add the repair man's time). You usually can't tell which of the two boards are bad so replacing just one frequently doesn't solve the problem.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (if you add a comment with the make and model of your washer, I'll check the parts cost/availability if they are at my usual sources.)
The E90 error code is not a specific code. The error code E90 is just a group error code. It is indicating a communication error between the two boards in your machine. It does not indicate where the problem may be. A power glitch may have caused the E90 error code or a loose connection. One of the control boards could have failed. If it did not clear by unplugging the washer, I recommend a technician come out to properly diagnose your washer
Error 90 is a common fault code in domestics within the Electrolux, Zanussi, AEG range. It's a wiring fault /connection normally between the printed cicuit board and wires. switch off power, remove lid, pull off each connector on board checking for clip holding the connector in place, one at a time, look for arcing marks, rub pins gently with clean cloth, tensinsion up clips in connector(delicately) and refit. having done this, test again with a wet load on spin, then a wash programme. Before dispairing check the motor coonnections.
