Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, I don't know your particular washer but try this--->
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 complete 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!

Good luck!
John C
If this is the solution please score it accordingly- thanks!

Multiple letter input in one letter


hi neriz, i believe what you meant by "multiple letter input in one letter" is that when you press a key, say the letter A, it comes up with AAAAAA on the screen, is that right? if its so, its called "sticky keys". the keys on your keyboard are stuck either with dirt, dust, food crumbs, or if water has been spilled. you can try vacuuming the keyboard or shaking it face down the table to get rid of dirt inside or under those keys. try pressing other keys aswell, if all of them acts the same way, you may want to change the keyboard settings on control panel. but if its just a couple of keys then yes, it is dirty. if this is not your case, let us know ok?

Lack of drive letters on my hdd.


Letters are limited but you can always use the letter for other drive without removing/disabling/getting rid of other disks. You can manage your disks by accessing the disk management utility. Right-click My Computer and click Manage (Disk Management) or open up Run dialog box (START menu->Run) and type in "diskmgmt.msc"

Next you can remove the drive letter from the drive which you are not using at currently by right clicking the partition and click on "Change Drive Letter and Paths" and click remove. Finally assign the letter to the desired disk/partition. It will appear on My Computer now.

Will not finish last spin cycle or drain water out of tub.The letters "dc" flashes on the monitor.


The issue with dc/UC errors will only get worse. Take a look at this post and see if it will help you. Many owners of the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW have experienced this issue. Root cause almost all the time is the one-way roller clutch bearings. There could be an issue with the Tub Displacement Sensor and there is a quick test for this I will attach the test in this post. If you have basic mechanical skill sets give it a try. I and others will try to help you thru the issue if you decide to go forward, post back if you have questions. Rich

3.0 Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check.
It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.


3a. Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”


3b. Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.


3c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


3d. Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


3e. Press Hand Wash.


3f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). If you get these results your Tub Displacement sensor should be OK and I believe it’s not the component failure producing dc/UC errors in spin cycle. I would remove the clutch for inspection and re-lube. There is a more technical troubleshooting method to check Tub Displacement Sensor in the Troubleshooting guide and Service manual.
