The F01 error is a communication error and most likely the cause is a bad central control board. You try to unplug the power and the machine and check by reconnecting again if still will not start so next I'd recommend trying to run a diagnostic cycle to verify the operation of the central control.In the image below are the instructions to enter and run the diagnostic routine. If the process is done successfully all of the LED light will come on for 5 seconds then display the last error. Push the same button until the error code ends and all the lights come on again for 5 seconds then the test will start. If the test runs through okay then the central control unit is most likely okay. If it fails to enter diagnostic then the control has failed and needs to be replaced. The last thing to try is to check the connections on the control. A loose connector might cause this problem To see how the control unit looks please check out this link. http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkdgrwgdsbqrsbbxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/gfbtbqbdfxgdwrwktgr/1/1303472/5961857/image59835img-or.jpg -------- Resolution: Error code F-01 can be caused by a power surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below. To clear and restart the control follow the below listed steps: Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit into the wall outlet. Wait for another 30 seconds to allow the control to recognize all components. Press the Pause, Cancel or Stop button twice to clear the display. To test operation of the washer,select Drain & Spin cycle, then press and hold the start button until the machine starts. If the cycle does not start, there may be an internal component failure that requires service by a professional technician. Note: General information for resolution is based on information provided in question. Please contact a repair technician if problem persist. Call Sears Repair Service 1-800-469-4663 You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Bosch washing machine WVT 126S, error F01 on the start. Please help


F01 means the machine thinks that you have pressed start and the door is still open, so, either the door is not completely shut or you will need a new door interlock (part number 182154) you can get the part by calling 0844 892 8979 (UK) or http://www.bosch-home.co.uk/customer-service/spare-parts-accessories.html. Or the connection to the door lock is not loose or detached.Hope this helps

My he2plus waher won'y unlock and displays code f o1


F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board.
This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines.
You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes.
If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.

The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...

Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time.
Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer.
Reassemble and test the washer.

The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU.
The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate.
Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU.
There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed.
The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.

I have a F-01 fault code on my Kenmore HE2plus front load washer. model # 11047512601. Sears talked me thru the software resets and still had the F-01 error. do I need to replace the Main Control Unit?


Hi,


The F01 fault code is indicating an EEPROM error or a PUMP DRIVER error. A communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM on board the CCU occurred.

Possible causes of an EEPROM error:
A power glitch may have caused this error. Unplug the power cord for 3 minutes then reconnect power.

Possible causes of PUMP DRIVER error:
The pump driver fails to activate. Replace the the CCU board.
Most likely the CCU board will need to be replaced.

Thank you !!

Maytag EpicZ has a F01 code. The machine will not start!


I have had the same problem and I just fixed it. The f01 code was flashing and I left the machine on and pulled the cord out of the outlet and it restarted. Mine would not start, it would power on and you could select the type of wash and make any selection, but once you pressed start it would start flashing f01. I left if flashing and pulled the plug and it started working immediately.
