Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Unfortunately you have forgotten to mention the make and model so I'm having to guess what the code means- different makes, models, codes! I would gently 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 even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my 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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Try resetting the mainboard by removing the wall plug overnight. May also be a faulty lid switch if it is a top loader.

    Our AW-1170S Toshiba washing machine ia showing error code E9-5 error message . How can I fix it.


    Pam: This code relates to WATER PRESSURE , could be a (1) Krink hose, (2) plugged strainer where water enters the machine ( doing it's job) or (3) a sensor that malfunctioning (thinking you have NO water pressure. These sensor prevent the machine from operating dry, flooded etc, some times they OVER protects. So check the first 3 items above. you may have IN HOME service on it.

    I have a Samsung eco bubble WF1804WPU model that started showing the error message SUD. Any time it happens the machine stops washing as if paused and I have to press the pause button twice for it to start...


    The SUD error indicates an excessive amount of soap suds in the wash. It will be difficult for the machine to rinse / spin all the soap out during the cycle, and may need to be run thru the cycle again (do not add any more detergent!).

    Remedy:

    Stop using regular detergents! Front loaders specifically call for "HE" (High Efficiency) detergents as they require less detergent and clean better with the reduced amount of water in these machines. Look for your favorite brand and select the one with the distinctive HE logo show below:

    25390537-tg4qprwnexgxw1cywyhhxkqk-3-0.jpg

    Use only the amount as directed on the bottle - do not use too much. Clothes should come out clean and soap free - and the SUD error should no longer appear - if it continues - double check the amount of detergent you're using as it is probably still too much.

    Good luck!

    My washing machine fisher paykel mw511 stopped working and now only beeps and show red light on spin. But don't spin or wash clothes


    Is this the same company that makes Fisher-Price Toys?
    I thought so, well you get what you pay for! OK most machines have some Reset function process. Most work by unplugging the machine for 5-10 minutes (computer to reset) then plug it back in. You should get a prompt/ audio or text message (if there is a window) that alerts you that the machine is resetting itself. Then just follow by testing a Light load setting so you do not have to wait around a long time. IF...This does NOT work. THEN...My Friend...You have a BAD control board. Which is like a computer board. And those are EXPENSIVE! $200-$400. So then it becomes economics. How old is the machine 5+ yrs? Buy another Machine

    Starts to wash and it stops and i have E 2.


    Hi,

    he e2 error is a generic error that the machine shows if it's been overloaded or if the load becomes unbalanced during a wash cycle.

    To fix you must do a master reset of the washing machine.

    1. Close the door and make sure the dial is pointing to the "OFF" function
    2. Hold the Start/Pause button and turn the dial anti clockwise (to the left) to the "express 15 min" program at the same time.
    3. Hold the Start/Pause button for a minute (the e2 message is meant to start flashing after a minute of holding the button down however with my washing machine this didn't happen) (and neither with mine)
    4. Release the button and turn the dial back to the "Off" function.
    5. Select any program and the message should not be appearing

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:

    1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
    2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
    3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
    4. Push the filter back into place.
    5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.
    6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.


    Also, please check the following:
    • Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
    • Check the water pressure.
