Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this JUST IN CASE!)
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not go to spin or release the door lock if there is water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general pre-typed (!) guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to pursuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Duet. What does F8E1 code indicate needs to be done to restore operation?


Check out the Link and the info below.
Question: Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL Answer Product Symptom:
Front Load Washer - Error Code - F8 E1 or LO FL


F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:
No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. The washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:

Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.

NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

Whirlpool recommends that appliances be direct connected to the water supply for optimum machine performance.
If a "flood saver" device is being considered:
  • Check with the manufacturer of the device to ensure it will not affect the performance of the appliance.

  • Whirlpool has experienced that "flood safety" devices can interfere with the performance of the appliance. Whirlpool typically does not recommend these devices.
Two types of "flood-saver" devices, hoses and valves are illustrated below. anti%20flood%20hose%202.jpeg floodsafe%203.jpeg Whirlpool Duet Washer F8 Code Appliance Repair Forum

Error code 13. Turned water on to machine and it leaked.


Try this link

it says the following:
E13 Condition Water leak in the tub or air leak in pressure-switch air hose Check/Repair The washer fills for too long without the water level pressure switch tripping to indicate that the washer is full. Check for a leak in the wash tub. If the tub is not leaking, check to see if the washer is overfilling. If it is, check the air hose and water-level pressure switch for problems.

How do I fix a Duet Front Loader displaying a F8 E1 error Code?


Without model Number going on experience they change based on model the error codes F8E1 is a long fill error code if you have flood safe water supply hoses install regular washing machine hoses most common issue pull machine out remove back panel inspect black hose that runs from pressure switch to plastic tub the clip that holds it in place usually comes loose allowing it to rub against the rotor of the motor causing a hole to develop which will give a F8E1 code

Not enough water supply F8E1 in a front load washer


Long fill error code if you have flood safe water hoses replace with regular hoses, this may sound stupid but I have seen this in the field make sure water is turned on, other possible reasons bad inlet valve or no power to valve from control, front load washers are notorious for rubbing a hole in the tube that goes to the pressure switch this switch is what tells the control to output power to the inlet valve also make sure the drain hose hasn't fallen to the floor. Quickest way to eliminate some things start with an empty washer after door locks unlocks and locks again the basket will rotate a few times then water should enter the machine fill to a level in the the basket that is barely above the bottom holes in the bottom then stop this eliminates control and inlet valve , if unit continues to fill and you get water half way up the door glass probably a hole in pressure switch tube I very seldom see a pressure switch go bad hopes this helps.

Make sure your washing machine is on level ground, if the machine is off balance it will stop.

Whirlpool LF Error code


LF = Long Fill
LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
Is water supply connected and turned on?
Are hose screens plugged?
Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.

At some point during the wash cycle, my washer stops and flashes "F35." I can't find my owner's manual, so can you help?


The F-35 error occurs when the central control unit cannot detect water level. Remove the hose going from tub to the water pressure analog control and blow out sediment in tub then resecure and pump out the water then retry if unsuccessful you will most likely need to replace that puppy:

I agree. here are some things to check for

• 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 Drain pump operation

• Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and

Pressure switch

•Verify there is not a siphon problem

•Verify wire harness connections to Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump,

Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)

•Check all hoses for possible leaks

•Verify pressure switch operation

•Verify flow meter operation

•Verify CCU operation

Error code washing is delayed wil wash half the clothes


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.
