Error code E43 on display of WPRB9220DCC GE Washer

System locked, nothing works. How can I clear the error code

  • mikelagc Aug 05, 2008

    To clear the E43 code, unplug the unit for a few minutes, then plug back in. The E43 code will reappear when unit receives power again. Push the Start and Power buttons at the same time. Then push custom wash 1 to scroll through different error messages. When you get back to E43 (it appears again on the display), push the start button to clear the message, then push power and you should be all set.

    Does anyone know why this happens to these units? I have had to go through this process three times. My unit is about 2 years old and, until now, I haven't had any other problems with it.

This is the beginning of a leaking seal in the gear box. Some units have a pan to catch the leak from getting to floor. Seal needs to be replaced, otherwise gearbox will fail (lot more $$$$)

Zanussi washing machine fs1255w green end light flashes 5 times what is this error code

Press START/PAUSE and any one of the option buttons
simultaneously for at least two seconds: the LEDs first switch off,
and then display the flashing sequence corresponding to the
alarm condition.
Alarm E43 (problems with the door safety interlock triac) will be displayed as follows:
• four flashes of the END OF CYCLE LED indicate the first digit E43;
• three flashes of the START/PAUSE LED indicate the second digit E43;
So, error code E55 as you specified does not exist. Any how, family error code 5 (first digit) means problem with motor. Error code could be E51,E52,E53 and E54.
Possible causes:
- faulty motor
- motor brushes (very often)
- faulty tachometer (integrated in the motor but is replaceable)
- faulty electronic (Motor power triac short-circuited or motor relay contacts sticking).

E43 code on atf6000eso washer

Thanks for your post, friend!

Based off the error code you were able to provide your Frigidaire washer is providing you're an "E43" error code and that means your control panel needs to be replaced. This is not a simple DIY job and I would highly recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the replacement part is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree. -Matt

My maytag commercial washer display a code F26

This error code indicates that the door needs to be opened and closed.
The F26 code may appear the first time you try to use the washer. Open and close the door to clear the display.
The F26 code may also appear if the washer has run three cycles without the door being opened. Open and close the door to clear the display.
If opening and closing the door does not remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.
If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and the condition above has been checked, call for service.

GE Washer Model ## WPSB9220D0WW Data Code31704 Error Code E43 Drive System Excessive Brake Time My washer don't do anything but show this error

On GE Washer Machines, E43 error code means "excessive brake time". The brake and speed sensor will need to be checked. You can try resetting the machine by disconnecting the power for 20-30 minutes. Keep in mind that your right model number is WPRB9220D0WW.

You can eliminate if it's the speed sensor by entering the service model. To do this:
- Turn off the washer at the power pad
- Remove power by unplugging the cord for 15 or more seconds
- Plug back in and within 30 seconds simultaneously press and hold the POWER and START pads for 3 seconds
- Should now display the model codes
- There are a bunch of tests but we are interested in the spin fast portion, so press the custom 2 pad until the display shows SF ( Spin Fast )
- Hit START pad... it should start spinning and display the rpm's

If it does this the speed sensor is working and the problem is the brake which means the transmission has to be replaced. Parts replacement can be find in THIS LINK.

If you do not feel able to resolve it, we recommend you call the technician to do it. Now you know what the problem.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Have GE Profile Washer Model # WPRB 9250. Was working fine and then I came home from work yesterday and the normal electronic display looked odd - it was all black except for the time remaining screen...


The code means "excessive drive system brake time" which means there is a problem stopping your drum in normal amount of time. Sometimes there is a small leak down on breaks and controls. It can also be a simple computer glitch in which case you need to reset your washer. if you open your control panel in the back there should be a sheet of paper with detailed descriptions of all the error codes and how to reset your washer( push certain buttons in allotted amount of time)

If the reset doesn't work I'm afraid you are looking at a pretty costly repair..

Good luck

Kenmore 417. 4405200 Front Load Washer error code E43

It's a bad wax motor inside the door latch. The diagnostics are buggy and do not test it properly. It should measure about 1.5K ohms, and when 120 VAC is applied to it, it should extend in about a minute. Part number 12002535 is $10 to $15.
