Error code E43 on display of WPRB9220DCC GE Washer

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

    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 $$$$)

LOC showing on screen

Hello Annie, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I see you are still receiving error code "LOC" even after replacing the door lock assembly. Let's try unplugging your washer once again to determine if it is a false error code. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn your washer on. Before selecting a cycle, press OPTIONS and SELECT at the same time for 20 seconds until "LOC" is no longer displayed. If the error code does not clear, then your washer more than likely may be experiencing an issue with the control board or wiring harness. I hope this information helps to some degree.

I have a whirlpool duet washer with error code f 11 please help!!!!

The F11 error code means "Motor control unit error". If there is nothing wrong with the wire harness, then looks like the motor control unit (MCU) has to be replaced.
I would FIRST replace the door latch/lock assembly it has cleared this problem for some people and is the cheapest part for this problem.

I have maytag neptune tl,i moving3 week ago i do a coneccion and a have a cod en tha machine OP,and dont do nothing.

Sorry should read ""Confirm the model number and the 1st two digits if the serial number and I will see if I can help. Is the machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Any error unbalance codes during the spin cycle like dc or UC? ""

You have lost signaling thru the left hand lid lock or have a lid magnet out of posistion.

With the lid open try placing a magnet over the left hand grey lid bumper with the lid open.

If the OP error code clears then it's a Lid Magnet issue. If the OP error code dosen't clear we need to troubleshoot the Left Hand lid lock or replace. I prefer to troubleshoot further before buying a part. Let me know what you want to do. If you want to troubleshoot/DIY the repair we need to move your issue to a better DIY appliance repair forum. Try the external magnet first and rule out a Lid Magnet out of position issue.

See pics;


See if an external magnet over the left grey lid bumper will clear the OP error code.

Lr code went into service mode but wont respond to commands model #fav6800aww


The LR error code can be a tough one to troubleshoot but I'll see what if any help I can be.

The LR code stands for Locked Rotor.
If you Power Cycle the 120VAC to the machine will the error code clear?
What cycle was the machine in when you took the error code wash, spin?
If you remove the front panel and with the 120VAC power cord removed from the service outlet can you rotate the Clutch Pulley CCW (Spin direction) or CW (wash/agitate) direction.
Sounds like you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual.
Let’s see if the drive system is free and not locked up…………Rich

I have an error code OP what should i do

You could have a lid magnet out of position. Quick check for that is to place a magnet over the left bumper with the lid raised and see if the OP error code clears.



If it does you need to remove the inner panel of the lid to access the lid magnet see page 32 of the Service Manual for the procedure.

If the external magnet doesn’t clear the OP error code you will have to start troubleshooting the Left Hand Lid Lock. You could have severe corrosion with and an open lead on the magnetic reed switch in the Left Hand Lid lock. Link to replacement Left Hand Lid Lock

See this post Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting for further info. I discuss troubleshooting the OD error code but you troubleshoot the OP error code the same way……Rich

My Fridgidaire Affinity front load washer has a ERR pause and I can't reset it. How do I clear this

Take a look at this post, it’s for troubleshooting an OD alarm but you can follow the same troubleshooting path to see if you have a lid magnet out of position or a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay located in the left lid lock. The lid magnet operates the magnetic reed relay to signal the lid is closed/the lid is open. Try an external magnet on the left bumper and see if that clears the OP error code with the lid open. If it doesn’t I would try reseating the left lid lock plug (possible corrosion issues). If that doesn’t clear the OP alarm it would be time to pull the life lid lock out of the machine and inspect for a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay or other corrosion issues with the left lid lock. The left lid lock is in a location near the bleach dispenser. Links to the SM are in that post and a link for parts look up. Post back if you have questions

Door lock light

I just had the same problem. The door lock wires have clips so unless you uncliped them that would not be the problem. It should be listed in the reset error code section, but I would suggest performing the system error check first before clearing the error.
Step 1 go to
Step 2 click on CUSTOMER SERVICE on top of page
Step 3 go to PRODUCT MANUALS and click on DOWNLOADS
Step 4 type in MODEL NUMBER and click on search
Step 5 your error code information is in the TECH DATA file there you can perform a full system check PLEASE READ ALL WARNINGS POSTED
Step 6 save all PDF files to a new folder name it FRIGIDARE for easy availbility.
Thank you and good luck.
