    My washer won't start either. All the indicator lights are functioning, but the time just flashes and "hold to start" doesn't start it and "cancel" doesn't clear it.

After reading your posted comments regarding all the different problems with the front loader. I located the problem with the door latch activator similar to your car door light switch. As it ages/wears down it just disappears to the inside of the mount leaving no indication it is even there. As suggested in the comment on your forum you can place a small object inside the plastic switch to simulate the missing knob or possibly run a bypass electrically.

The part is only $56 and is readily available at dealers. My problem was I ordered it online and am still waiting for this to arrive even after they assured me from the order desk it was in shipping mode! Hmmmmm!!!!

Thank you

What does E6 error code mean


here is basic error codes for your dryer (and how to get them out)

READING ERROR CODES

1. Rotate cycle selector knob to the 3 O'clock position.

2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.

3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.

4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O'clock position. The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid

(Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code and the START indicator

light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to

confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting the number of times

the lights flash. Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START indicator light

will flash four times indicating the 4. The four indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same

time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.

NOTE: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine. A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15

Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. The four indicator lights would blink four

times and the START indicator light would blink ten times. Troubleshoot the problem by using the chart below.

To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.

To clear code, press the Select button. Code will be cleared when mode is exited.

To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

Error Code Label Description Solution

E10 General EEPROM

Fault

Problem with communication

between EEPROM and the

microprocessor.

Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic

control.

E11 Checksum Error Problem with communications or

memory did not check, one has

become corrupted.

Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic

control.

E12 Non fatal R/W

error

Problem reading or writing to the

memory or input/output.

Clear code, exit mode and start dryer. If problem persists, replace electronic

control.

E24 Control NTC Short

Circuit

Control thermistor or its wiring is

shorted.

Remove wires from control thermistor. Measure resistance of thermistor. If

reading is not 50 K (± 10%), replace thermistor. If reading is within 50 K (±

10%), check wiring between thermistor and electronic control. If good,

replace electronic control.

E25 Control NTC Open

Circuit

Control thermistor or its wiring is

open.

Remove wires from control thermistor. Measure resistance of thermistor. If

reading is not 50 K (± 10%), replace thermistor. If reading is within 50 K (±

10%), check wiring between thermistor and electronic control. If good,

replace electronic control.

E4A Program Timeout

Fault

The drying time has exceeded

program time for that cycle.

Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6 seconds to exit test modes.

Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT

and touch START. Check for anything that would extend dry times such as:

no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in

closet with solid door, or bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or

dirty bars. If dryer operates normally but code returns, replace electronic

control.

E5B Heater Fault (no

heating)

Temperature reading of control

thermistor has not changed in a

certain amount of time.

Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT

and touch START. Measure voltage across terminals on relay RL2 (heater

relay) on electronic control. If meter reads 240V on electric models and

120V on gas models, replace electronic control. If meter reads zero, remove

power from dryer. Disconnect wire going to NO terminal on the relay RL2.

Reconnect power and measure voltage drop between terminal COM on

relay RL2 and neutral. If meter reads zero, wire between incoming line and

relay RL2 is open. If meter reads 120V, check the rest of the heater circuit.

E68 Key (button) Struck

Fault

One of the keys (buttons) is stuck

closed (active).

Enter function test mode and perform key (button) test to determine which

button is at fault. Carefully free the and perform the test again. If button is

free but the key struck code still exists, replace electronic control.

E8C Too many trips in a

period of time.

The safety (high limit) thermostat

has tripped too many times within

a certain period of program time.

Check for blocked lint filter, blocked exhaust, air leaks around air duct,

broken blower fan blades, worn or loose drum seals, dryer installed in closet

with solid doors or door seal not correctly seated.

FH: If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering
machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be
displayed. OR If the control has turned the water valves on and after
8 minutes the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing
through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will
be turned off and the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
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.themobilian_447.jpg
-Verify inlet valve operation.
If there is water in the unit:
-Verify drain pump operation.
-Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
properly connected to tub and pressure switch.themobilian_448.jpg
1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves,
pressure switch, drain pump, 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.themobilian_449.jpg
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.
