Question about Washing Machines
Have bought one today when we try to start it it says demo on the screen and also machine is blocked can u help thanks
SOURCE: what does f12 mean on
Hi, I think the F12 Error means lack of water or water turned off, check that first, if water is turned on then turn it off disconnect the hose from the machine, then hold the hose in a bucket and gently turn on the hose tap to check if water does flow, if it does check the valve on the back of the machine, there is usually a small filter in there that can get blocked, these can be pulled out by a small tab on top of the filter using a pair of pliers, clean it and then put it back in reconnect the hose and turn the water back on, try the machine again, if its still the same it could be a faulty water valve that will need replacing.
There is another reason F12 could appear which is a faulty PCB or wiring harness fault, but generally the above should be checked first.
Here's a picture below showing an example of the valve with the filter in blue, you might just be able to see the tab on the filter.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my power tripped the other
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(If no one else answers here is how to obtain a manual!)
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
