Earlier this afternoon, I'd posted about my washing machine's door locked light being lit, and my not being able to do anything to activate the washing machine.
I realize now that I was mistaken. It's not the door locked light, it's the control locked light that is lit.
I can't specifically find anything on how to release this lock.
There are no f-codes showing.
If I push all 3-- control, start, cancel-- buttons, simultaneously, I can get the control panel to light up, but I can't change any options.
How can I release the "control locked"?
Answer Hello Steve. If it does not reset, by pressing and holding the lock button, you will need to replace the control board in the unit.
Washer try's to drain F2 code all drainage hoses are clear and all other areas that need to be clean and clear are. Is this telling me the pump is failing and I need to replace it. We can trick the machine and make the pump work on a different cycle.
is it easier to replace the computer ?
Answer hELLO jAMES. Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make
sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.
I turned on washer and a code came out on the board it was f11. Will u be able to tell me what that means?
Answer Hello Johnny. Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU)
and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent
correctly. Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the
motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not
mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left
when facing the MCU connectors.
My washer throw a code f5 I think and it lost power and left door locked repair man came out and got it unlocked and tested machine and said it was control panel I just replaced it and it still has no power to control panel . it has power into box the panel plugs in to.
Answer Hello Mike,
If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, the “F/05” error code will be displayed. Possible Causes / Procedure 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Check the water temperature sensor. Refer to the
Water Temperature Sensor section, page 11 of the units' tech sheet. Check connections to the water temperature sensor. 3. Check resistance of heating element, if present on this model (abnormal = infinity).
Water Temperature Sensor
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Disconnect the wire harness from the water temperature sensor and measure the resistance of the sensor. Use the table on the units' tech sheet page 11. An abnormal condition is an open circuit.
Replaced the main control unit (8182695) after a failure. With replacement unit installed, the machine worked for about a day, and then it stopped working again. Cannot get the machine to turn on again, but you can lock and unlock the controls (using the lock/unlock button). Tried unplugging the machine and leaving it for 30 minutes, and even four hours. Checked wiring with no faults found.Suspect control unit is defective.
Answer Kevin, Are you sure you have all the harnesses between the UI(user interface) and the CCU Central control unit) properly seated and attached? Have you attempted to conduct the diagnostic or manual test programs ? You should find your tech data sheets in an envelope attached to the back side of the lower access panel. Program into the test modes and iof the new control has had any failures or errors, they should appear in the tests. If there were no codes generated, then you can presume the new conmtrol is faulty.
Kept getting the F02 code, clean the drain at the bottom which was completely clogged, ran a couple times to get sedement out of lines, then ran the washer cleaning monthly maint which completed and cleared out the rest of the sedement, (I have well water). Went to do my load of laundry and now the door wont lock and gives me the DL code. How do I know its just the door switch that needs replaced and not the whole control board ? Also, still have a load banging noise when it enters the fastest spin cycle but stop's shortly after and finishes the cycle, does not bang unless it's in the fastest spin mode and has been doing this all along.
Answer Hello Diane,
It is actually considered normal for the unit to make noise and to even vibrate at times in the spin cycle. The unit senses the most violent and the smoothest spin speeds and will finish the spin at the smoothest rpm. If it were possible to perfectly balance a wet load of clothes this wouldn't be necessary but, unfortunately, being in the real world, perfection isn't possible, so mankind came up with this method.
As far as the DL code goes, A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure
The control must be in the OFF state before pressing the touch-pad sequence to start the test.
Starting the test mode
Close the door.
Press the Control On button.
Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle.
Select NO SPIN by pressing the SPIN SELECT button, as needed.
Push Prewash Option button four (4) times within five (5) seconds. C:00 will show in the display.NOTE: If Model does not have PREWASH Mode as an option, press RINSE/HOLD.
If the Starting procedure fails, push PAUSE/CANCEL button. Then repeat the starting sequence.
The first thing that happens in the diagnostic test is the display will read C:00 and the door should lock or try to lock. You can test at the door lock for the voltage but this is un-necessary if the door lock mechanism makes a noise. If no voltage is getting to the door lock mechanism, the issue is an electrical connection or the main board. If the voltage is present at the door lock mechanism, the door lock mechanism has failed and requires replacement to restore normal operation.
