Dr, C1 occures when there is a spike of 25 amps or more on the motor windings. This can be caused by overloading, the drive motor itself or the motor controller. You need to do some tests on the motor windings to see if they are in spec. Easiest way is on the board. Using a putty knife, slide it under each end of the consol and press on the spring. Push up on the consol while pushing in. The consol will lift up. The motor contoller board is on the left. The P6 harness is in the center. With the washer unplugged, unplug the P6 harness. Measurements on the harness should read: From the red wire to white/black=3.1 ohms. From yellow to white/black=2.8 ohms. From red to yellow=5.9 ohms. Or if you want to read them direct at the motor. Remove the harness and at the motor, red to white=3.1, yellow to white=2.8, red to yellow=5.9. If you have a reading that is much higher than the posted a problem exists in the motor windings. If they check ok, then the problem is in the motor controller. It's up to you but I sure wouldn't put any money in this machine. It has been my experience that there is just too many failures on this model. Catriver.

Daewoo DWD-F1011 1E error code I have a daewoo washing machine model DWD-F1011 and it start working the wash before no working spin and gives error code 1E. Any idea what that might be?

I do not believe that is a 1E I think it's an IE error code which would be water inlet wiring or something like that. Here is the code list, scroll down until you find IE, Daewoo errors start at E2, hope this helps.


What means c1 on aeg oko lavamat 74500


Error C1 on AEG Lavamat usually means that there is a trouble with water filling. The required water level is not reached.

I reccomend you contact your local Service
Force Centre.

Here is the link to a manual of a similar AEG Lavamat waching machine (a "trouble shooting" part). Hopefully, it will help!

Have a 7.5 Kg Fuzzy Logic top Loader that does not spin

Hello.. DE Error means door error but if wash cycle is working properly means you need to change your drain motor.

Placing the drain hose from the lg front load washer it leaks excess water and it spin but do not get the water out of clothes on spin cycle and I notice the drain hose is flat like a tire

Flat like a tire? That is an indication of a vacuum situation.

The first thing I would do is make sure that the pump is getting an activation voltage when the washing machine goes into spin. If it doesn't it is either your controller board or your timer circuit. If you are getting a signal at the pump then you will need to replace the pump.

Since I don't have your model number, I can't look up those parts to give you an idea of what the parts will run.

I have a c1 error on an AEG oko favorite 50700 What dies this error mean

I don't understand why replies talk about the C2 and C3 errors... The problem is C1! I have the C1 error. I start a programme, it does the draining cycle to check empty then starts filling. MI can hear water entering but it sounds slow at a low flow rate. If I leave it going, eventually the programme stops and the error is displayed: C1 Opening and closing the door allows the programme to continue. I get the error after the various stages of the programme, when it is filling for the next wash or rinse. So it's 4 or 5 times I think during the programme. Now, if I help the filling... When the appliance is filling, I open the door, and poor in a kettle or two of water, then the error does not happen (the fill is within the time expected by the appliance?) So I am thinking one of two things is wrong: 1) I have a flow rate problem BEFORE the water connection to the appliance. E.g. It is blocked somehow. 2) There is something which opens/closes the "tap" within the machine which is causing the flow rate to be low and it does not fill quickly due to that. No idea which of these two, but I did disconnect the hose of the supply and check that water flows quickly from it into a bucket, so I am thinking there is something inside the machine which "opens the tap" and it's not doing a good job of it. Anyone got a clue?

Whirlpool Washing Machine shows error code C1

The C1 error is displayed when the motor tries to pull more than 26 amps to run.

This indicates a problem with the motor or motor controller.

Overloading or excessive suds can also cause this error.

If you like to make a few more checks then the image below contains the instructions for entering the diagnostic test mode.

Its a short cycle that runs all of the components so the operation of each can be checked.

I hope this helps but an intermittent C1 error can be hard to pin down.
