Sears Electric Dryer is flashing F01 What is wrong?


The F01 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.
You can order a new control board from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Why is my Maytag Epicz model #MGDZ600TW2 not starting and giving me an error code F01. What does it mean?


The F01 error code is typically a communication fault. You may have a defective main control board. Unplug the dryer or turn off the breaker to the dryer. Double check to make sure dryer has no power. Remove the screws holding the top on at the back of the dryer. Standing in front of the dryer push down and slide the top away from you then lift. With the top removed you will see a metal bracket on the left side housing a control board. Remove the control board from the bracket. You may want to take a picture to reference where the wires go. Remove the white cover of the control board then gently remove the control board from the white housing by pressing in the small tabs. If you see a black mark on the back side of the control board and the white housing replace that control board. According to your model number the main control board is part number W10111606.

Why are error codes F01, F06 and E2 showing up?


sounds like its not loading water.. this normally occurs if either your pump filter is obstructed or the inlet pipes filters are..TURN OFF THE POWER SURPLY then turn your water off at the stop valves and get the.. hold a small bolw under the joints when doing this as there will be some water in the pipes. with the pump filter id need to know the model to tell you where there filter is located, if your machine has a small panel at the bottom left of the front then its fairly easy if not the pump is at the back.
Click open the front panel you will see a knob similar to that on a mircowave,, turn this gently anticlockwise. ONLYT TURN IT SLOWLY as water will flow out, using a small bowl drain the water out. it will take a few bowl fulls to do this.. when your sure all the water is out fully remove the filter.. and run under a tap to clean of any lint etc, Before replacing put your finger in the outlet you will feel a small fan like device just move it slightly it should rotate freely.. (if not then the pump is jammed or burnt out) when replacing the filter double check for any dirt give it a rub with a sopf cloth and screw back in.. make sure it is in tightly..

Bosch series 300 washer: E:04 error; how to remove pump cover


You can get that cover off, by prying it up at the bottom and spinning the thing clockwise. then there is a large hand turnable plug inside.

Once you turn it water will start leaking out, you'll have to get in and pull out the crud from the pump screen there to clear the jam. Good luck!

F01 error code


I've fixed Indesit WITE 107 F-01 failure error!

We have the washer like 3 years and the F-01 error kept showing irregularly since one year ago - just after the warranty expiration. Usually unpluging the washer from the power supply solved the problem, sometimes immediately, but mostly overnight. When we moved from flat to country house, the problems frequency slightly increased. Till last couple of days it was still bearable. But in the recent days the error didn't even show up, and the motor was not turning at all. Just the pump was pumping the water in and out, so the program got hanging somewhere. So resolution became necessary. I've contacted tow servicemen yesterday, but none of them answered yet - well it's weekend. But as usually, when you ask for help, you'd find it on your own right after. So I decided to look at it myself.

- unplugged the washer power supply, closed the water
- unscrewed two screws that hold the control panel
- removed the panel - you need the lid to be semi-opened
- (re-conected all connectors to fix any possible oxidation or unpluging - then tried the washer, but problem persisted)
- unscrewed all screws that hold the side cover - only the right one had actually been necessary (when standing in front of the washer)
- unscrewed all four screws hidden under the bottom cover in the front of the washer that hides also the filter (those still hold the side cover)
- unscrewed two more screws at the top back of the washer - they hold the circuit board to the washer body - it needs to be loose
- by pulling the top side of the washer up by the lid and pushing the side cover away "to the back" (with a screwdriver), see how the side cover is held by the top, remove the side cover
- observed the motor and immediately saw heavy corrosion at the ground connection (yellow-green wire) at the motor board and possible slight oxidation at one other connetion of the black wire
- using sand paper and screwdriver I've cleaned the contact together with the connector and tried the washer - still no effect
- cleaned the black wire connection with the same way
- tried the washer (spinning program) and - voila! It works!
- tried unplugging the black wire and running the spinning program - both the motor AND the pump didn't start

So, it looks to me that the problem was in an oxidation of the black wire connection - that is apparently a power supply for both the pump and the motor, that caused insufficient voltage and thus a power for the motor but probably still enough for the pump. The randomness of the problem was probably caused by humidity in the room and maybe some more factors - the washer is actually opened from the bottom so when I test the washer more times and see this as a solution, I'll probably cover the connetors with silicon to avoid corrosion or oxidation in the future.

Here are also some tips for putting all together:

When removing the side cover something fell from it inside. It was a plastic lath that is placed on the nearer edge of the cover and fits both onto the edge of the cover and the adjacent edge of the washer. It's a bit tricky to put it all back plus there is a plastic piece at the bottom of the side cover that is fixed there also very loosely and keeps falling inside when srewing the filter side screws - but this can be fixed with pliers adjusting the edge of the side cover to make the plastic to fit there tightly

---
So if you are a bit handsome, try this before calling the service. It might help. And also you'll know your washer a bit more.

I receive an error code F01 on my Kenmore Duet Sport


If memory serves me correctly this is a main control board error. To find out for sure, Remove the lower front panel of the washer. (the 1/4 screws are across the bottom) Just inside that panel is a tech manual. Skip to the error code section. For an F01, the steps should be unplugging it for 2 1/2 minutes (to reset the Triacc (part of the main circuit board). I would also pop the top cover (the screws are in the back) and check for any loose connections on your main circuit board ( front top, right hand corner) WARNING - Circuit boards are delicate and an static shock could ruin them. Ground yourself before touching the connections. If all steps fail, you can contact a local servicer. I only suggest this because I have found there are other things (not printed in the tech manual) that will give a false f01 error code. Make sure they give you a warranty for thier work. If you would like to replace the board yourself, they can be obtained from the local appliance parts supply stores or online form the manufacture.

Maytag epic z washer flashes f-01 error code


I had the same problem and the code f01 would flash, I could select the wash and make selections with all the other buttons but once I pushed start it would flash f01. I fixed the problem by not turning the machine off and pulling the power cord out of the wall and it seemed to reset it. I could immediately turn the machine on and it stared working.

Duet sport with an error code


I have a Whirlpool Duet and the washed load would stop and give me a F-21 error. I tipped the washer back a little and removed the three screws on the front bottom cover. There is a large white drain value, turn and open the drain (make sure you have a pan or something to catch the water and any junk inside) to remove the water. Attached to the drain is a black hose with an expanded section, squeeze this to find any loose socks, under clothes etc. I acually found three socks, a battery, a pair of tweezers and a few coins. This F-21 error is a drainage problem, don't call the repair center and pay for a serviceman, it is easy to fix yourself. I hope this helps!!
