Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.

SOURCE: fisher & paykel washing machine fault codes

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

SOURCE: f-02 fault code on indesit we16 washing machine

For what it is worth my WE16 often stops with an F-02 display within 3 minutes of starting, but only in summer months. Powering off and restarting usually cures it, and it will then go on to run several loads without problem. I keep the machine in my cellar boiler room, and attribute the problem to high humidity when the boiler is not running. Changing the PCB does not cure the problem, nor does protecting it against humidity (eg poly bad and silica gel). I conclude that moisture getting somewhere unexpected (tacho perhaps?) can cause this error.

Model wf361. What is causing e3 error?


e3. Drive motor tach fault. This means that the tachometer is not regitering any motor movement when it should. Main reasons for samsung: motor control board fault. Tachometer fault. Motor fault. Also check wireing from motor control board to motor. But this issue is not common at all with samsung.

Model pw6065. Why is 'technical fault' displayed?


Hi dear. Machine display that message because,there is a problem with machine's components - drive system etc.. Which is not rectified by user. (You can check the fluff filter but you can not test the motor or electronic board.)You need to get professional help from Miele for proper diagnose and solution for it. Thanks.

The SE light flashes when turning on the washing machine


Not sure which washing machine you have. But assuming it is an LG SE is a serious fault.
Motor fault detected Can also be caused by be main PCB
This is not a good fault code to see as it will generally be correct and either the washing machine drive motor or the main electronic control PCB is faulty.
  • Check motor
  • Check motor tacho
  • Check all connections and blocks to the motor
  • Check connections on the main control module
  • Check main control module
For more detailed analysis please post make and model of your washing machine in the comments field.

Error code f 07 mid cycle?!?


You do not state your machine or model. The error code F07 that I have states that the Central Control Unit has detected a short in the Motor Control Unit.
Check the wire harness between the Drive Motor and the MCU and between the MCU and the CCU.
Check the MCU.
Check the Drive Motor.
Check the entire wire harness.

Replace any defective parts.

My machine keeps displaying a E9 fault, what should I do to repair this?


You have not mentioned the make and model. Now the error is an indication of the fault or a protection indicated.
So remove power and plug in after making sure the door is shut - the door switch is checked to work.
If the error comes on , check on the power to the control panel, observe board for visible damage, check the inlet valve, check for working, check the drive motor, capacitor and drain pump/valve. Once confirmed that all these are working check for line break , if there was damaged done by rats/insects.
If none of these show an indicative fault then the program controller can be faulty.

Error message F 11


Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
Potential causes: • Check Wire Harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU) (its the
usual thing)
• Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
• Check MCU
• Check CCU
• Check Motor
• Check Wire Harness

Replace failed component. Check for sharp edges in wash basket of machine. Companies want you to dump your machine & go for a new one, keeps their factories running.

Washing machine


this clicking of the timer tells you there is a fault somewhere, this could be anything, you have to check things i would do them in this order check the heater element, most common fault second the pump but you said that works then check the motor that drives the drum belt look at the motor control board for any signs of burning etc, this could indicate a motor fault you have not given much info, but with a fault like this thats all you can say, i have given you a brief starting point what and where to look, so happy hunting if i can be of further help get back to me
