I just had the F23 problem and it went away when I took the filter out, rinsed it and replaced it. Funnily enough the filter was perfectly clean... so the rinse may not have neen necessary - bottom line it was the filter.

SOURCE: I have a siemens WM14S794GB washing machine and F23 is flashing

F:23 means that your machine is leaking and should be repaired. This is often a bad seal and if you are competent or know a friend who is they can inspect the source of the leak for you. Needless to say you should make sure that you unplug your machine before attempting any repairs.

Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: getting FE error on our

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I suspect that stands for 'Filter Error' so 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 generic 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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters 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 this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

SOURCE: code f23 for whirlpool washing machine

Hi,
It means that there is a fault in the heating circuit and the heater is not working

The listed site deals with this problem so take a look and if you are fully capable of testing, follow the troubleshooting instructions but always double check that the unit is unplugged or disconnected from the electrical supply.

http://www.assuredparts.com/WhirlpoolDuetWasherFaultCodes.html

And remember kindergarten rule #1 "If in doubt, don't" with everything that is potentially dangerous. Electricity kills so a service repair bill may be a better solution.

Hope this helps.
jenni.

Hi I have a Whirlpool 6th Sense Washing Machine - AWM8143. I is washing and spinning perfectly well and there are no error codes. However when it spins the machine makes a grating squeaking noise that is...


hi,
looks like there is some friction between the main and outer tub of your machine. there is generally a mechanism for smooth spinning of the machine in good rpms for wash-spin cycle. this could be because of rust formation, or mud collection. please refer your manual and remove the 3 screws behind the lower front plastic cover, and look for rust formation. scrape the rust and try spinning again.

cheers
