I had the same exact problem. I was getting a F-02 code. After alot of headache and searching I found out I had 3 baby socks stuck in the drain. Which explained why the water would not drain. There was atleast a gallon of water in the pipes so when I opened the cleanout.... WATER EVERYWHERE!!! make sure you have atleast 5 towels readyto go when you do this

I had a sock stuck in the drain. the bottom front of the washer has three screws that take a star shaped bit(screwdirever head) take those screws out and you can see the white clean out. If you open this, (turn by hand) you will find the obstruction. If the obstruction is not there, it may be elsewhere in the line.
You will get about gallon of water on your floors so have a couple towels right by you.

It is hard to tell if there is no model number. Normally, WP machine has error code appeared on the display. I guess your unit does not have display, so the combination flashing is a signal to tell you what wrong with the system. You can check the service manual normally taps inside the unit.

Hello,

A dE error code indicates that the washer door was unable to lock. This can normally be resolved by performing a simple reset on the washing machine.
How to reset the washing machine:
1.
Press POWER to turn the washer off.
2.
Unplug the washer from the power outlet or turn the circuit breaker to the unit off.
3.
With the power disabled, press and hold the START/PAUSE button for 5 seconds.
4.
Plug the washer back in, or turn the circuit breaker back on.
5.
For more information about how to reset your specific model, please refer to the owner's manual.
Press in on the door firmly and select any cycle. The washer door should lock, and the cycle should begin without an error code appearing on the display. If the cycle does not begin and the dE code appears again, repair service is required.

Fault code f26


This error code indicates that the door needs to be opened and closed.

The F26 code may appear the first time you try to use the washer. Open and close the door to clear the display.

The F26 code may also appear if the washer has run three cycles without the door being opened. Open and close the door to clear the display.


If opening and closing the door does not remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:

  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.

Bosch classixx 1200 washing machine. There was a power cut and now it won't work. tried leaving for 20mins with it set for a wash cycle. All spin lights flashed as did the wash programme light. After...


Before you investigate the fault, try unplugging the machine at the mains for 20 minutes. This MAY reset the problem and all will be well. If that fails, then read on:

The flashing lights are an error code. You will see that there are a series of rapid flashes followed by a pause and then the series of flashes will be repeated, this is the error code being displayed. If you count the number of flashes being given then you use that number to correspond to the fault code, for example, three flashes would be fault code 3.

Fault Code 1 notlit.gif notlit.gif lit.gif Door open after program has been startedThis error code may well not show up for a minute or so after you actually go to start the washing machine but the door can be closed and the program restarted.
If the error persists there may be a fault with the door locking mechanism or door latch.
Fault Code 2 notlit.gif lit.gif notlit.gif Water intake has failed
Error after more than 10 minutesa failure of the water inlet valve or the water supply itself has been cut off somehow. This can be due to the water valve or supply as stated but it may also be worth checking the filters in the fill valves to ensure that they are clear.
Fault Code 3 notlit.gif lit.gif lit.gif Heating time exceeds 105 minutesThis would ordinarily indicate a fault with the water heating element or, certainly, the water heating circuit as the washing machine is indicating that it has failed to reach temperature.
The error can be caused by faulty wiring, the heater as stated, low voltage or even a calcified heater has been known to generate this error code.
Fault Code 4 lit.gif notlit.gif notlit.gif Takes longer than 6 minutes to drain.Very often you will see this error if the filter is blocked or obstructed or the drain pump is jammed or faulty.
This error code can also be caused by the pressure sensor being blocked by overfoaming from overdosing detergent or using a poor quality detergent as well as a pressure switch or sensor failure.
When this error occurs the program is aborted as it is considered to be a "fatal error" without any attempt to drain the washing machine.
Fault Code 5 lit.gif notlit.gif lit.gif NTC thermistor open circuit or short circuit
Self explanatory really, either a faulty NTC or wiring. The washing machine will complete the program but will not heat.
Fault Code 6 lit.gif lit.gif notlit.gif Unexpected heatingThe machine has attempted to heat at a stage in the program where it should not.
Fault Code 7 lit.gif lit.gif lit.gif Fault detected in motor or drive circuit
Very often you will see this error if the carbon brushes or the motor fails.
This error code can be generated by no tacho reading from the motor (the electronics cannot see the tach generator of the motor), a triac fault or short circuit or a faulty reversing relay on the control board. The washing machine will try to start the motor but after several attempts the program will be aborted with this error code which is again consider to be a "fatal"

What does E27 on display mean


Bosch washers come with built-in sets of error codes used to diagnose and correct common problems. The E27 code isn't often listed in Bosch manuals but relates to the washer door lock

The E27 error flashes on the washer LCD screen and stops the current load. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and then plug it back in to reset the code.

Open and close the door two or three times to reset the sensor. Sometimes the door has been closed too hard and the sensor reading fails.

If you get the FL how do you get the door to open??


  1. Your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.
  2. Do
  3. Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.
  4. FL
  5. The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.
  6. Sd
  7. The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.
  8. PF
  9. The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.
  10. Nd
  11. The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.
  12. LO
  13. The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.
  14. Lr
  15. The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional.

Maytag Front Load Washer - SD error


hi there,

it appears that you have a door switch problem. the door latches on these machines are equiped with a mechanical switch and if this switch disengages in any way, the machine thinks that the door is open, even if it's not.

the code that you see is actually a "dS", which stands for door switch.

check the door latch, which is where the door switch is located.

thanks.

Will not start


Alright, unplug the machine for 5 or 10 minutes, after plugging the machine in make sure power is off and hold the spin button down for 5 seconds, then off for 5 seconds until all lights light up, if there is serious error a F code will appear, press spin again until it clears, now 88 appears in the display,flashes and starts a diagnostic cycle. Your error will pop if serious in the display stopping the test at which write the F code down and power off the machine, Either the toe panel or at the right side behind the toe panel is a tech manual to decipher the F bomb.
