It sounds like the machine is a Whirlpool Duet if not a Kenmore Elite and a short circuit problem in the motor control unit (MCU) is detected by the central control unit (CCU). This is the reason the machine is not spinning correctly and fault code F07 is flashed on the display.

Check the wire harness connecting the MCU and the drive motor, the drive motor windings, the wire harness connecting the MCU and CCU, and lastly the MCU itself. The MCU is located on the left of the machine base facing the front of the machine. Remove the MCU from the housing and inspect it visually for short circuit or burn marks.

F07 is a fault with the motor control, probably the triac has failed.

My machine is displaying a code F07 and wont spin is this worth getting it fixed or buy a new machine!


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but you have not told us the make and model to be able to decode your 'F07' ;-0) So- guess time- I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor 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 persuade 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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Error code f 07 mid cycle?!?


You do not state your machine or model. The error code F07 that I have states that the Central Control Unit has detected a short in the Motor Control Unit.
Check the wire harness between the Drive Motor and the MCU and between the MCU and the CCU.
Check the MCU.
Check the Drive Motor.
Check the entire wire harness.

Replace any defective parts.

My Hotpoint Ultima keeps displaying an F10 fault and doesnt spin correctly. However, if I then switch it to a rinse and spin cycle it seems to spin OK.


F10 meanswater level pressure switch not sensing correctly, there could be a blockage in the switch hose or chamber, or the switch could be faulty.

F07 occurs at end of first rinse cycle


F07 - Motor Control Unit (MCU) Error - Disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wire harness connections between drive motor and Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU). Reconnect power and plug unit in.
Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor, and check drive motor for powered rotations. Replace failed component.

Note: If this failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.

Ariston Front Loading Washing Machine error code F07


Error code F07 is indicating that the heater relay is stuck for one reason or another.
This could be a board problem, as this where the relay is located.
However, it would be worth checking that the heater is o/k before you do anything else., as this possibly could cause the relay to malfunction.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
