I get error FE- book says unplug and call a tech. Is this something I can fix myself?


FE error means that the water is filling past it's set point. You may have a broken water valve that won't shut off when it's in the filling mode. You can check by running the washer and watching the water fill. If the water level fills above the bottom of the glass, you have a water valve that's not shutting off. Replace the water valve.

MY KENMORE WASHER , MODEL # 20712 991 70 SERIES FILLS WITH WATER AND NEVER GOES IN THE AGITATE MODE , IT JUST CONTINUES TO FILL(it would run over if allowed), WHEN YOU MANUALLY MOVE THE TIMER TO THE SPIN...


The water level sensor hose may have come off. This would require some dis-assembly to repair. Get the correct model number please to get a diagram.

I have a fisher paykel GWL10 washing machine. It shuts off while


At this stage i can suggest that the inlet valve may be faulty & giving off this burning smell.open the control box & see if one of the 2 inlet valves look distorted or brown or burnt looking.I'm wondering if it's not filling very fast also,this could also be an indication of the valve.

Water dose not stop runing and go into wash mode


Does your washer constantly attempt to fill and never does? Or, does the washer continue to fill and overflow?

If the washer is constantly trying to fill, but your water level does not change, you may have a condition known as siphoning. Siphoning occurs when you don't have a proper air gap on the drain line and the washer will actually drain as it attempts to fill. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575830-how_to_prevent_washer_siphoning

If your washer fills, won't shut off and then overflows, this is caused by either a pressure switch malfuction, or a water inlet valve that won't shut off. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753517-whirlpool_top_load_washer_fills_when_not

I know the link is for a problem where the washer continues to fill even when it is not in use, but this problem occurs while the washer is running as well. The method of determing the cause is the same. In many cases, an overflow problem is caused by the air hose slipping off the pressure switch. Without the air hose, the pressure switch never detects the pressure differntial from the wash tub as it fills and won't shut off.

Read through the links provided and let me know if you have any questions. If the conditions I have described do not match your symptoms, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can help you determine the source of the problem. Please include your complete MODEL NUMBER. I hope you find this information helpful.

My maytag neptune washer stop washing with 10 minutes left to go.


If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error. The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue. The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle.
Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only? I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket.
Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens. If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode. Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s. If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly. You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.
