Question about Washing Machines
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.
