What is code E1 F6?
Answer Hello John. The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit
(MCU) cannot be sent correctly. Possible Causes/Procedure
- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Check that the power cord terminals are connected at the right position to the RFI filter
- Check that the two ground switches are pressed correctly by the toe and rear panels.
- Check that ground switches are fitted correctly, and are not broken and the green
ground wires are connected correctly.
- Make sure that both ground switches are not broken or scratched.
- Make sure that all the ground harnesses (green wires) are connected correctly, and are
not broken or with wires detached.
- Make sure that all wire harness connections from the CCU (MI3 cavity), main Motor,
and MCU are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.
- Check for continuity from the MCU connector wires to CCU (MI3 cavity) connector.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed, the Main Harness must be replaced.
- Make sure that all the connectors are fully seated.
- Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the washer operation by running the Diagnostic Test cycle. See page 5.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect power and
wait for 15 seconds.
Washer will not start or lock the door. Error code F-22 displays. Have replaced the door latch and it does the same thing with F-22.
Answer Hello Gary,
You will want to check the wire harness connections to the door lock and CCU to make sure that they are not broken or detached. Make sure the connector internal pins are visible. Check continuity from the door lock and CCU connectors. If the continuity diagnosis fails you will need to replace teh harness. If the harness checks ok then you would need to replace CCU.
My door latch is 60 ohms (pins 1&3) and 118 ohms (pins 2&3). I'm replacing it. I'm also getting error code F28. Is it possible changing this part might clear up this problem also?
Answer Hello Steve,
The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad. The Motor Control Unit W10163007 and the Machine Control W10205977. It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for error code F28. As far as the door latch goes, if it is bad, of course you need to change it. If it has no obvious issues and you are just putting it on to try to solve the F28 fault code, this will not help or change the issue.
I transfered my washer to my new home. When I installed it I noticed that the door won't close. Do you think it is the latch or did it get damage from the move? I don't want to order the part and thats not the problem! Help!
Answer Hello Brenda,
First try to close the door slowly and look at how the latch lines up. If it doesn't line up properly, the hinge W10118967 will have to be replaced. This would be damage from the move. If it lines up, the door latch assembly W10253483 will require replacement.
Just changed the bellow tried to start door locks an keeps clicking.Guess it's not getting a signal that it's locked. Is there any thing I can do? Did I do something to the locking latch?
Answer Hello Matt. You will need to check and see if there is any loose or broken wires in the unit. If so, it will cause the problem you are having with the latch W10253483. If not, replace the latch assembly. Hope this helps.
How do I remove the boot off the front pannel to change the latch?
Answer Hello Lou. Open the door and remove the clamp holding the boot in place. You can use an ice pick to remove the clamp from the boot. Be careful not to make a hole in the boot. Once the clamp is removed, you will pull the boot off the lip of the front panel to remove the boot. Now you can access and replace the latch assembly W10253483. Reinstall in reverse order. Hope this helps.
I start a cycle and press start... the door locks, then nothing. No error codes or anything. When i get tired of waiting i press "Cancel" once, twice, doesn't matter because i get the same results. "Add Garment" light flashes and nothing else... Just a waiting game until i unplug and try the same over and over. I have tried the Diagnostic Test but it stops right after the "Door Lock" cycle... could it just be the door latch assembly?
Answer Hello Sean. Here is what the manufacture recommends when the washer will not start. Make sure the door lock is working properly. If so, you may have a bad control board W10205842. Hope this helps.
1. Open and close the door. The door has to be opened between
consecutive wash cycles.
2. Check the door switch/lock unit running Drain cycle.
3. If door is locked, drain the unit. Remove lower cover and drain by
opening the Pump filter. Release the door as described in the
section Manually Unlocking the Door Lock System, see page 8.
4. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
5. Check the resistance of the motor pump. See pages 8.
6. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
7. Check all wire harness connections to the CCU are not broken or
wires detached and connector’s internal pins are visible.
8. Check all the green wires (ground harnesses system) are not
broken or wires detached.
9. Check the two ground switches are pressed correctly by the toe
and rear panels.
10. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
11. Check the button/LED assembly by selecting different cycles and
changing the modifiers and options available to confirm the
button/LED assembly is responding.
12. Verify unit operation by running a Service History Mode &
Diagnostic Test. See page 5.
