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!
John C

Whirlpool awm 8143 doesn't stop at the end of the spin cycle. Instead it clicks for a while when the timer displays 1 minute then displays F07 then goes back to wash cycle. While googling I found something...


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.

The F07 indicates a Motor Control Unit (MCU) Error.

  1. Disconnect mains power and unplug unit.
  2. Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  3. Check the MCU
  4. Check the Drive Motor
  5. Check the Wire Harness
  6. Reconnect power and plug unit in.
  7. Check the MCU operation by looking for movement of the drive motor, and check drive motor for fully powered rotation.
  8. Replace failed component. Note: If this failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle.
Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re select cycle and select HOLD TO START.

My washer wont spin on spin cycle what can i do to fix it


Hmm.. you'd probably have to get a replacement.

It would be worth the wait then just buying a new one for like £/$500, if anyone has a better solution. Say it out LOUD! :D

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.

My dvd player wont work


Not worth fixing. Just buy a reliable brand that doesn't have that problem or a cheap machine for $20-$40 and get a new one every two yrs or so.

Drum on washer wont spin


It's not worth fixing if it's 10 years old or more, better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!

The belt is gone and or snapped off or the transmission is shot! And it's not worth replacing an old transmission.
If it's 10 years old or more buy a new one
and save your money ,fixing it is a waste!
Not worth the money to fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
