Error code 43 is for the Out Of Balance (OOB) switch.
The OOB is situated under the Motor Control Board which is accessed by the 2 screws at the rear of the display facia.
You may be able to fold the MCB to the rear after you remove the securing screw from the front of the MCB. Or you may have to remove some of the connections.
The OOB is a micro-switch which is activated by a 'trigger' which hangs below it, between the bowl and the cabinet. Sometimes these switches become oxidised and can be cleaned, but it is far better for the small cost to replace it.
TIP.... take the switch with you when you buy a new one so that you get the right one. Some are clicked ON, and some are clicked OFF
Replace machine components in reverse order.
Good luck....Nomess

    Excellent. I stuck my hand between the bowl and the cabinet found the trigger gave it a wiggle and solved the problem, washing machine works perfectly again. Could mean the switch is on the way out though, so I'm armed and ready. Cheers

Code 43 Error Message

The Code 43 error is one of several Device Manager error codes. The Code 43 error will almost always display in the following way:

"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

Details on Device Manager error codes like Code 43 are available in the Device Status area in the device's properties


rror Code 43 Troubleshooting

  1. Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.

    There is always the chance that the error Code 43 you're seeing on a device was caused by some temporary problem with the hardware. If so, a restart of your computer might fix the Code 43 error.

    Note: Some users have also reported that powering off their computer completely (not just a reset) and then turning it back on has corrected their Code 43 issue, especially if it exists on a USB device. In the case of a laptop, turn it off and remove the battery, wait a few minutes, and then put the battery back in and start the computer.

  2. Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 43 error appeared? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 43 error.

    Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 43 error.

What is code 43


Code 43 Error Message

The Code 43 error is one of several Device Manager error codes. The Code 43 error will almost always display in the following way:
"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"
Details on Device Manager error codes like Code 43 are available in the Device Status area in the device's properties: How To View a Device's Status in Device Manager.

Cause of the Code 43 Error

A Code 43 error is generated when Device Manager stops a hardware device because the hardware reported to Windows that it's having some kind of unspecified problem.
This extremely generic message could mean there's a true hardware issue or it could simply mean that there's a driver problem that Windows isn't seeing as such but that the hardware is being affected by.

  3. Reinstall the drivers for the device. Uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers for the device is a possible solution to a Code 43 error.

    Important: If a USB device is generating the Code 43 error, uninstall every deviceunder the Universal Serial Bus controllers hardware category in Device Manager as part of the driver reinstall. This includes any USB Mass Storage Device, USB Host Controller, and USB Root Hub.

    Note: Properly reinstalling a driver, as in the instructions linked above, is not the same as simply updating a driver. A full driver reinstall involves completely removing the currently installed driver and then letting Windows install it over again from scratch.

Washing machine stopped filling up and an error 43 or 43 came up on screen


Hi just read your posting.Now Error code 43 means you have an OUT OF BALANCE SWITCH FAULT.The switch is located under the control module which is located under the top panel.Would you like me to guide you throe the testing and possible replacement of the Switch?The secondary source of this error code is your Motor Controller.But we must test the switch 1st as the switch is the most likely component that is faulty.Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter to test the switch.It would make it easier to test the switch with the tester but there are ways around this.Please reply for further assistance and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Error code 43 on F& P washing machine


The micro switch or the lever that activates it seems to have been the cause of the Error Code 43. Have re-seated the switch in its holder and ensured the activating (out of balance) lever is moving freely. The switch appears to be OK and now it is all re-assembled, the Error Code 43 is gone. Machine is operating normally again.

Out of Balance Switch was located below the right hand side of the computer board (module).
