SOURCE: washer goes into unbalance mode

Check the springs and spring mounts,(might be broken or not on right), also could be something wrong with the balance switch (where the tub hits the switch).It could be mis aligned or defective. Check the springs first.

SOURCE: error code

Hi,

The reason for "F 20" is that while there is "NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING MACHINE OR PRESSURE SWITCH TRIP NOT DETECTED." If after 30 seconds not minimum 0.1l of water entered or maximum fill time of 13 minutes is exceeded, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
The possible fix for this problem is:
If there is no water in the unit: Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves.
Verify inlet valve operation.

If there is water in the unit: Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
properly connected to tub and pressure switch.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, flow meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Verify pressure switch operation.
7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and measuring the resistance.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.



Thank you

I had the same problem. My control lock was on without the status light on. To unlock the controls I Selected and held END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for at least 3 seconds. The lock/unlock control status light never indicated the locked position, yet my washer now works. NOTE: Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds to toggle between lock and unlock.

SOURCE: washer starts to begin wash cycle then says suds then error code f35 appears then washer shuts off

F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.



The "SUDS" error can be caused by too much detergent, improper detergent, drain pump/drain line problem, or pressure switch malfunction.

1. If you are not using HE detergent, you need to be. These washers are designed to use HE detergent which is formulated for wash tubs that use 5 to 7 gallons of water. If you use regular detergent, you are, in affect, placing a higher concentration of detergent in the washer that is normally formulated for wash tubs that have a 35 gallon capacity. The manufacturer should have a disclaimer in the owner's manual explaining this. In most cases this will also void your warranty. NOTE: Prolonged use of the wrong detergent can damage the drain pump components and or wash tub seals.

If you are using the correct detergent, double check the label to make sure it is not double (2X) or triple (3X) concentrated. You could still be placing too much soap in your wash.

To get rid of excessive detergent, place the washer on a RINSE & SPIN cycle, then run it through a normal wash cycle with NO detergent added. You may have to repeat these steps depending on the amount of detergent used.

2. If you do not have a detergent issue, double check the drain pump and drain lines to ensure they are not obstructed in any way. Click on the following link for step-by-step instructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

Obstructions in the drain pump and/or drain lines can attribute to air getting trapped in the drain pump and cause the error code. Double check all electrical connections to the drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU). You will need to remove the top panel of the washer to access the CCU. This is accomplished by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top panel in place. With the screws removed, slide the panel back, then off. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub in the center of the washer. The Drain Pump connector will be the 6th connector (facing from the front L to R) in the center of the CCU.

3. Check the Pressure Switch to ensure it is good. The Pressure Switch is located to the right of the CCU as you are looking from the front. It is a small cylindrical shaped device with a connector plug and an air hose attached. The switch can be checked at several water levels by removing the plug and taking resistance readings at the connector pins. Readings are as follows:

(Pins are numbered R to L facing the from the REAR)

Pins 1 to 2 (SUDS Detect) – 0 ohms
Pins 3 to 4 (Overflow) – 0 ohms
Pins 4 to 5 (L1) – 0 ohms
Pins 4 to 6 (Empty) – 0 ohms

Front load washer LG wm2140cw with error code up side down FE. Any ideas what this means? Will start to run then error code shows up and it stops.


A tE error code on the display of the washer indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor.
  1. Unplug the washer from the power outlet for 10 seconds.
  2. Plug the washer back in and press the POWER button and then the SPIN SPEED button until No Spin is selected. Press the START/PAUSE button.
  3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.
  4. If the tE error code appears again, close the water taps and unplug the washer. The washer will require repair service.

What is error code 41


Good Afternoon Donna,

I see that you are wondering what an error code 41 is on your Frigidaire washer, model# GLTF2940ES. Error code 41 means the control board thinks the door switch is open. You will want to make sure the door is closed. Reset your appliance by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker. When you restore power select any cycle and start it. If you are still receiving an error code 41, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Washer has a LE (or EE) code or something like that. First character looks like an E missing the top bar, or an L with an extra bar in the middle. i was doing a load of towels when this happened. i assumed...


Washing machine has an LE error code
Is this a new installation? In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.
Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.
Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Over-sudsing is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency) detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.

Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.
Step 5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.

Hope this helps.

I had a problem start with error code E000-0120. I easily found this was an overheating problem. The room where the printer was located had gotten very hot, so I shut the printer off and left it until...


Hi,
these means that thermistor still reports the temperature problem or that copier was memorised the error code and keep reporting it. Auto shut off is sign of fixing trouble.

To be sure if the thermistor or lamp is faulty, first try under service mode to clear the error.
If that doesnt help you you need to call service to locate problem in fixing section.

Procedure to clear error:

Clearing E000
1) Start service mode, and select 'FUSER' under 'FUNC'.
2) Press 'E000RLS'.
3) Turn off and then on the power switch.


SERVICE MODE:
1) Press the "*" key on the control panel.
2) Press "2" and "8" on the keypad at the same time.
3) Press the "*" key.

Hope that helps!

Windows xp tries to start in safe mode screen then as program starts gets brief blue screen then back to safe mode start selection screen once again this keeps repeating


your system will do this as it has shut itself down to protect itself, to make the blue screen stay on so you can write down the error code (e.g stop 0x0000007B),you need to choose the option of `disable automatic restart on sytem failure` (this will be on safe mode screen, reboot, then when you get the B.S.O.D it will stay on and display an error code, google it and you get the answer or post the code on here and i`ll tell you

Washer will not fill with water after it locks


Hi brittruiz07, I’m an owner like you and will try to help.

Is your machine type a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW? I need to know the model number this is important.

With this condition I assume both lid locks retract allowing you to open the lid and no water flows into the wash tub and you take no error codes to the display is this correct?

The Lid is Locked LED lit and if the water valves are not not signaled on at the start of the wash cycle this issue could be related could be related to a Control Board issue. I don't want to say failure just yet. Let's see if the Control Board will let you get into Service Mode. With no error codes to start the troubleshooting process with we need to enter Service Mode and vview machine Error Code History.

To enter Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”.
This is from the Service Manual; this process starts on page 17 in the Service Manual.
In Service Mode press the Wrinkle Control key.
The display will show a “d”.

The diagnostic codes can be viewed by using the Set Delay Time arrow keys. Pressing the Set Delay Time down arrow key will cycle down the list one code at a time each time it is pushed. Please right down each code such 4, 18, 22 etc.
If there are no error codes in the Control Board memory the display will read “- -“ that’s two dashes in the display. I feel you will have many Error Codes from previous wash cycles. I just want to get a feel for the Error Code history.
Next I want you to hard reset the Control Board by pulling the disconnecting the washer power cord for ten seconds then reconnect washer power. Go back into Service Mode and make sure all Error Codes have cleared you should only see “- -“. Press the off button to back out of Service Mode.
Start a Quick Wash cycle with minimal machine settings and no clothes in the basket.

If the washer fails to start the Quick Wash cycle as you described in your initial post how long did it take for the machine to unlock the lid? Did any water flow into the tub and were there any Error Codes sent to the display? Please go back and read the error code list and let me know what error codes you see from this Quick Wash cycle attempt. I know this is painful but we need to start somewhere.

You can pump out excess water when you fail with dc/UC unbalance errors with this process from the Service Manual.

Close the lid and enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Press the Delicates key this will lock the lid.

Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on.

Turn off the drain pump by hitting the off button or hit the Presoak key.
