Disconnecting the power normally releases the door lock.

Turn it back on briefly and then off again.

If that doesn't work, you will need to get inside and unlock the door manually.

F13 often means a problem with the dispenser motor. Sometimes the fix is as simple as pressing the release tab at the back of the dispenser drawer, pulling it out and then replacing it. (This works if the linkage between the motor and the drawer has twisted.)

Other issues can be junk blocking the sensor that indicates that the drawer is fully seated (and locked into position). Try removing the drawer again and cleaning it and the area where it fits into the washer. The drawer motor needs to be able to move the drawer between 4 different positions. You should be able to see if the linkages are moving if you take off the top cover of the washer.

If those steps fail, the problem could be the wiring harness between the dispenser motor and the CCU (control unit) or the motor. You will need to add a comment with the full model number of your washer. There should be a sheet in the washer (behind the control panel) with some information on testing the wiring of the washer. With the model number, I may be able to provide more assistance. (The model number is usually on the inside of the door opening for a front-load washer. Kenmore models will have a three digit prefix (manufacturer) and then the rest of the numbers give the exact model.

I hope this helps.

The router motor has much in common with the humble vacuum cleaner motor - the first routers used those motors.
The series-wound brush-type AC motor is electrically very noisy and self-generates many spurious currents so these motors are perpetually trying to destroy themselves. It should never be a surprise when the internal insulation fails and the motor begins to run slow and sounds as though something is dragging.
These motors need a good supply of cooling air so it is important to keep the ventilation system clean. Without lots of cooling air a hard working motor will quickly overheat with the same result.

The most surprising thing about these motors is just how durable and long-lasting most of them are.

Your router will have to be dismantled and examined. Assuming the power is reaching it and the switch is good it is possible the speed control (if fitted) has failed or if you are really lucky a motor brush has stuck or worn out - that often sounds as though something is dragging.

You did not post the model number but when a front loader wont spin at high speed it usually means that a spring or shock absorber on the drum is broken or came off.

F22 is a low dram code. SUD means high suds. Most likely there's junk (coins, dirt, gunk, Bobby pins, etc.) Jammed in the sump.

This response gives a good description on how to clean it out.

You are correct, an RCD trips when the current in the live and neutral lines is different - the question shouldn't so much be why it tripped but where did the missing current go?

The assumption is the missing current leaked to ground (or to the appliance casing) through an insulation problem...

Hello Shirley
please don't post follow ups as a new post. This no post has no relevance to your other post because posts on fixya are not nested by poster. I answered your last post and just happened to see it. You should have answered by clicking COMMENT under my post. That way I get a notification you need further help.

You need to return the one you got by mistake and get the correct one. You can't mix and match, or adapt fuel items, it is just too dangerous. you need the correct part for the scooter you have.

simply remove the switch. Take the wires and place them together covered by electrical tape. This by pass works on most switches, etc. MAKE SURE IT IS UNPLUGGED first
