    Thanks for your response!!

    As per manual :-

    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
    "CI" 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. Overloading
    the unit may cause this problem.
    Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

    Also, disconnect the power supply for few minutes,say 30 minutes and then turn it on. If problem persists, revert and then we need to run diagnostics to find what actually went wrong.

    Let me know,so that we could proceed.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for your response!!

    As you are getting this message on medium and light load, this more often confirms that this is an internal failure and needs repair. If you have appliance repair experience, could read diagnostics, would be able to use multimeter and could keep all precautions, you could revert and i could guide you unless you could call Sears or repair shop to get this fixed.

    Note - This is an internal fault. There are few diagnostics that needs to be run and then we need to replace that component. Punching in the buttons would not help.

    Let me know,so that we could proceed.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    If he wanted to get this fixed, you could always revert and i would be glad to provide a link for service manual for this washer and provide you some pointers. I might not be available 24 by 7 , so it could take few minutes or hours before you might get a reply.However, a reply would be there.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

I have the T731 butterflying dryer. It appears to be locked in the 15 hour time delay. How can I get this to start drying now without the delay?


I believe you have to press down on the start button and hold it till the time it's set at appears. Then you can change the time. If that does not work, then unplug for a minute then plug back in. -Tom

Dish washer does not turn on CL light stays on when reset count down 6 appears then goes to CL


Hello and welcome to Fixya,

I have a ton of service info on Bosch so it`s best I post you an exert from the service pdf`s I have on my PC which will explain the meaning of "CL" and then go from there. This is not a common indication of a control problem, but it could be a problem with the plastic casing which houses the control, we`ll deal with that later.

I`ve underlined the section pertaining to the "CL", this is for the SHU68** dishwashers only.

TO OPERATE:

First depress the On/Off Button until it locks in place.

Once the On/Off Button is depressed the LED above the previously used cycle will illuminate.

To change the cycle, simply press the desired Cycle Button twice. The LED above that cycle will then illuminate.

The Cycle Countdown will display an approximate run time for the cycle chosen.

This run time will depend on incoming water temperature and the turbidity of the pre-wash water.

Note: It is normal for the Countdown Display to remain at a time increment for more than one minute, or skip a time increment depending on the calculations of the Control Unit. Also, with continued use the Control Unit will learn the wash and temperature patterns for the most commonly used programs and will then reduce the overall start and running times.

At the end of the cycle the display will show a CL, indicating that the cycle is complete.

**TO CANCEL A CYCLE:
Press the Scrub Wash and Delicate / Econo Buttons both in at the same time. The unit will then drain and the figure CL will appear in the display.**

DELAY START:
The Delay Start feature allows the unit to be delayed for up to nine hours. To program, start the unit as described above, but after selecting a cycle push the Delay Start button. The display will show a 1h, or one-hour delay. Continue to depress the Delay Start Button until the desired delay time is reached (up to nine hours, 9h).
The unit will begin automatically once the delay time has elapsed. To reset the delay, press the Delay Start Button until it reaches 0h.

TOP RACK ONLY:
The Top Rack Only feature can be used in conjunction with any cycle. To active, press the Top Rack Only Button after selecting a
cycle, the Top Rack Only LED will illuminate and all water will be diverted to the upper wash arm for the complete cycle.

REFILL RINSE AGENT LED:
The Refill Rinse Agent LED is activated via a Reed Switch on the Detergent Dispenser, Section 4, Fig. 8-3. The LED will
illuminate when the Rinse Agent Dispenser is empty.
Service note: The Refill Rinse Agent LED will also illuminate when the dishwasher door is opened and then
closed even if the Dispenser is full, but will only remain lit for a few seconds.

“F” CODE:
An “F” in the display window indicates a filling fault.

Please note: If the door is opened during the cycle, the On/Off Button will be reset to off and must be depressed again to re-active the cycle. The cycle will resume from where it left off.

Now that you are equipped with this info, what I`d suggest is trying the **cancel option. ( ** see above )

Once you`ve tried the cancel option, select a Regular Wash and post back what happens and I`ll try to assist you from there.

Good luck.

Display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode


This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.

Dishwasher AEG FAV40620W stuck time delay


Thanks. I figured it out from the online manual. Hold buttons #2 and #3 (second and third button down on far left side) for 2 seconds should reset it. It took some 15 minutes however before the dishwasher reset!

Error on Westinghouse mastermind 708 front loader washing machine


This happend to me once, and it was in relation to a blocked intake filter.

- Check that the intake houses are not cloged and the small filter under neath is clean (Use an old tooth brash)
- Also check the opening on the front bottom left of the machine. (Open with a flat head screw driver)
. My one had coins in it. Note: drain with the small pipe into a backet so when you open it you don't have watter everywere.
