My machine starts to fill and then stops. It flashes 7 times. What is this error?


What is the Brand and model of your washer ?

Is it Indent ?
Many basic UK Indesit washing machines fitted with a rotary dial indicate error codes by clicking the dial continuously round and flashing the door lock light a set number of times.
If the door light (LED) flashes 7 times it means, "Heater relay stuck - check connections on heater and module (PCB)".
In my experience, this fault code usually required a replacement PCB and EEProm. A connection fault on the heater usually results in the entire washing machine going dead. Nothing will work, but the LEDs light up. This symptom can also be caused by an open circuit motor or other faults.

It's always possible for a connection fault to cause error codes but the heater relay is embedded in the PCB and if it develops a fault the whole board needs replacing. I don't recommend replacing the PCB as a DIY repair. It is an expensive part and it will not be guaranteed unless fitted by an engineer. New PCBs do not come with the micro-chip EEPROM which would also need fitting. Replacing the PCB and EEPROM yourself is risky. If the fault is not cured you cannot send the parts back.
If you have an engineer to replace the PCB and EEPROM I would imagine the cost is likely to easily be over £100. If your washing machine has a 5 year parts guarantee Indesit would supply the PCB free of charge but only if their own engineer fits it at a cost of about £90.
If you are really keen to fix this yourself and want to try another PCB there is a company that might be able to help and are happy to deal with the public called Quality Electronic Repairs (see link below)

Electrolux washing machine wh1092 when turn on lights 1,4 and 8 flashes. Nothing happens


If I understand correctly there is blinking LED-s from "Prewash","Rinse Hold" and "End of cycle". In binary code it is fault E91 what means communications error between main PCB and display board.
So, could be: main electronic PCB, display board or wiring.

Wm2077cw le error is there a reset button for that code


Your LG washing machine's motor is controlled by the main circuit board. This is the brain of your washing machine. Depending on the selected program and which cycle is currently running, the PCB will tell the motor which speed to run at and which direction to turn. The Hall Effect sensor on the main circuit board is fed operational feedback from the motor. If there is any difference between what the motor should be doing and what it is actually doing - the appliance will stop operating and display an "LE" error.
For example: if the main circuit board tells the motor to rotate clockwise at a certain speed and the motor doesn't start, the monitoring sensor will relay this inactivity to the main PCB and a "LE" error will persist. The same error would be displayed if the motor rotates in the wrong direction or runs at the wrong speed. It should be evident there are many faults that could produce the "LE" error code. Failure of one of the major components or a fault in the monitoring and feedback loop, could all lead to this problem. It is true however, some faults occur more regularly than others. Test for the most common causes of failure, eliminate them, and move on to more unlikely faults.
Many causes for the "LE" error are thought to stem from LG's manufacturing process. Many customers found the wiring damaged or completely severed in their washing machine's motor drive and feedback loop. If the wires were installed too close to a moving part, they may be vulnerable to mechanical wear once the machine starts to operate. A washing machine vibrates a lot during a spinning cycle, so it is conceivable wires could be damaged in this way. Check the cables feeding the motor for any obvious signs of damage. If you cannot see any problem, disconnect those wires and check for conductivity with a multi-meter. There should be almost no resistance detected in the wire.
If you find a damaged wire, replace it and ensure the new wire is well out of the way of any moving parts. If the wire is faultless you will have to move on and continue fault finding. Try and turn the motor's rotor by hand, if there is any real friction or if the rotor is seized - you will have to replace the motor. Faultless wiring and a washing machine motor - with the existence of an "LE" error code, indicates a fault in the main system board. It should be noted though; this is unlikely to be the cause of the problem. Almost all "LE" errors indicate faulty wiring - so ensure you have properly checked this before installing a new PCB.
Here is a link to the PCB board.

Water will not fill into tub


Push the buttons or turn the dial which ever you have that changes water temperatures. Select each temp and check for water entering the tub. Let me know what you find.

Could you tell me what is f - 18 flashing on my hotpoint wt960 washer


"F18" means a communication error. and this means that the PC board has failed, a wire or plug has come loose. It is electronic and needs experience so if you decide to investigate , look for bad connections, very carefully remove the pcb plugs making a note of exactly where each plug came from, clean contacts and replace.Look for obvious damage on the PCB's Replaced after doing a wipe over with a soft dry cloth. It is worth a trying it before paying out service call prices. Just make sure that the plugs are replaced in exactly the same position they were in!

Silver care button is jammed


Call the warranty company. If you try and repair it yourself, Samsung may void your warrantee. The silver care hasn't run out, and the service company will usually have to replace the interface or the button. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
