My Frigidaire Affinity washer stopped working in middle of cycle and shows E41 code.


Hello Shawn Smith - Typically error code E41 indicates that washer has detected that the main control board thinks the door switch is open. Try reprogramming the washer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately and properly assist with the repairs.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE model number: 110.27072603 washing machine shows LID error code. It wont work at all.... went half way through cycle... help.


Greetings,
this washer has a lid switch problem...or possible main board failure, but lid does concentrate on the lid safety switch. If you remember when you open the lid it stops..well, its a safety feature and prevents tub from spinning with lid open...this one is more difficult to service if your not use to working on washers...try unplugging machine and leaving off for awhile...does the door lock? check switch for lid fault

Machine will not spin and displays FP fault


Hi There
I have this for you and i hope this will get you in the right direction. Let me know how this goes. By the way Merry X-Mass and a Happy New Year.
PF Power Failure PF flashes if the washer loses power during a running cycle. The washer does not flash PF when it is first plugged in.

Press START to continue the cycle from the moment that power was lost -OR-

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display and completely cancel the cycle. Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

FP fault 43


Hi,

code 43 is an out of balance switch problem.Once replaced, would fix the issue.

One trick that might work ;-

I unscrewed top cover, then unscrewed and lifted up the grey computer cover. The balance switch is underneath on the right with a yellow and white wire coming off.

I removed switch from clip and then removed the wires/clips from contacts. There was definitely corrosion on the contacts. I soaked switch overnight in vinegar. Then rinsed with water. Then dried switch out for day.

Put it all back together and am now on second load of washing.

Thanks.

Hotpoint WT960 Fault F-07 heater relay


A few reasons for this, faulty heater, broken wire, faulty pressure switch or faulty main control board (the heater relay is on the main control board).

There is no reset for this.
Unplug the appliance and take the rear cover off.

Check the wiring to the heater and thermostat. Give the wires a good tug as they can break internally and look ok.
If you have a multimeter, test the heater, it should read around 25 ohms.
Take the top off the appliance, locate the pressure switch (has a thin tube on it), give it a few good taps with your screwdriver handle.
Finally, take the main control board out (bottom left when viewed from the rear) and one plug at a time, take them off, clean and tighten them, plug them back on.
If everything checks out ok, then it's likely the main control board is at fault.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Shows "LE" in display.


"LE" error means the motor has overloaded. There is no way to fix this yourself. You will probably need a new motor. Call for an engineer.
