Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Error Message I've tried to put a load of washing on this morning and the little LED screen (which normally shows the time of the wasing cycle selected) is showing the word "test". Does anyone know why this is and what I need to do in order to get the machine to wash??!! Thanks in advance for any help, I've looked through the manual which came with the machine but it doesn't mention it. The machine will be 3 yers old in November, I hope it's not dying on me!! :o(

I called the Hotpoint helpline and the solution to this problem was simple:

I had to press and hold the start/cancel button until all the lights on the display flashed
then I had to press and hold the start/cancel button along with the on/off button together at the same time, until the word "dOFF" was displayed... the msachine then functioned as normal.

Easy when you know how!

LG washing machine direct drive when i put it on it washes and goes down to 9 mins then stops, sometimes an error code comes up UE? CAN U HELP PLEASE


It means Unbalanced Error, it means the machine cant balance the load during the spin cycle, normally happens if there is too little a load i.e 1 or 2 things or overloaded. It is designed to protect the bearings. If it happens with a normal load try stopping it and re-arranging the load by hand and putting it on a spin only cycle. Hope this helps.

What's the purpose of the tub displacement sensor


To detect excessive wash tub movement and shut down the wash cycle. Here is a copy of my post from a real DIY forum;

Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down.


Here ya go.....in this post I discuss the issue related to unbalance error codes DC and UC;

Your FAV6800A or FAV9800A is going off balance with DC or UC unbalance error codes during spin cycle and you see/hear the wash tub banging around at the start of Spin Cycle of the wash cycle or a Spin Only cycle. If this is the condition the TDS (Tub Displacement Sensor) is working as designed and signaling the Control Board properly of an unbalance wash load condition.

The Control Board receives a varying D.C . Voltage from the TDS sensor and if the out of range D.C. Voltage limit continues the Control Board will halt the Spin Cycle and try to redistribute the wash load. If you are interested I will show you how to monitor the TDS input to the Control Board with a DVM.


The Control Board then starts the Spin Cycle again. If the wash tub/basket out of balance condition continues the Control Board will attempt another redistribute of the wash load. After several attempts (4 to 5 I believe) the Control Board will shut down the Spin Cycle and send a error code DC or UC to the LED display of the FAV6800A, my machine type. And I believe a text statement to the LCD screen of the FAV9800A machine i.e. something like "Unbalance Condition" I'm not sure what the text message is.


If you need help open a post in that repair forum and I will try help you through your issue.
The forum is free and my time is free I just don

My neptune washer will start and run about half a cycle and it acts like it gets stuck and on one cycle and never shuts off. I put a load of clothes in before I went to bed and next morning the machine...


What does half a cycle mean are you in Wash cycle, Spin Cycle? What does the Cycle Status LED indicate?

If you think the wash load is in a spin cycle of the wash cycle or rinse cycle place the machine in Spin Only cycle and see if it will complete.


Waht are your DIY skills? Do you want to try the repair/fix?.............Rich

Code "rL" means???


Code rL or F34 --> Load detected in machine at the beginning of the clean cycle. Push stop, remove clothes from washer & try again. Mine did this to me, even though there was nothing in the washer. I just tried it a second time & all is good again.
