Appliance Error codes – What You Need to Know

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: September 21, 2007

Appliance error codes are a mixed blessing. On the one hand they can give a good indication of what has gone wrong if a fault occurs. But on the other hand they are often kept secret from us. Even when you have an error code list the explanations can be cryptic, contain multiple possible causes, and at times can be next to useless. If you are currently trying to find out what an error code…

Appliance Error codes – friend or foe?

Relevance: 98%      Posted on: April 15, 2011

In the old days error codes on appliances just didn't exist. When an appliance went faulty, instead of aborting the program and displaying a mysterious error code - it soldiered on regardless and displayed symptoms. At times these symptoms might be quite nasty such as boiling all your laundry or flooding the kitchen, but often they were benign symptoms such as sticking part way through a wash or just reaching the end of a drying…

Dyson washing machine error F11

Relevance: 58%      Posted on: October 29, 2011

The Dyson CR01 washing machine error code f11 is one of the many next-to-useless codes that I talk about in my error codes (useful or not?) article. F11 means "no motor action", which means the motor isn't turning or at least the control pcb isn't getting any indication that the motor is turning. This fault could be equally observed by just looking through the door glass and seeing the drum isn't turning. The motor not…

Hotpoint WD washer dryer flashing lights – error code F03

Relevance: 56%      Posted on: May 18, 2011

Modern washing machines indicate error codes by one of 3 ways. The more basic ones usually flash a single light a set number of times in a cycle - eg. Error F03 might be indicated by the door lock neon light flashing 3 times, pausing for half a second or so and repeating. Other models display the error code in a digital display - eg. F03. Some can also indicate error codes using a combination…

Indesit or Hotpoint washing machine flashing 10 times (error F10)

Relevance: 55%      Posted on: November 10, 2010

Many basic UK Indesit washing machines fitted with a rotary dial indicate error codes by clicking the dial continuously round and flashing the door lock light a set number of times. If the door light (LED) flashes 10 times it means, "Pressure switch not sensing correctly: Check pressure switch and module". As Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines are currently owned by the same company they share many things and some of the error codes are…

Hoover error code E1

Relevance: 53%      Posted on: September 25, 2007

This is an error code relevant to the old Hoover New Wave washing machines. E1 = timed out on either fill, heat or draining. This is a typically ambiguous and confusing error code in that it is shared by 3 totally separate and unconnected types of fault instead of having a separate error code for each fault. You need to watch the washing machine to see when it aborts to get an idea which of…

LG error code SE

Relevance: 51%      Posted on: September 21, 2009

LG washing machines displaying error code SE are indicating a "motor fault" although the technical information also says it could be a main PCB fault. They recommend to, "try the motor first". Like many error codes it's vague and not too helpful, especially for a DIY repairer. So you really need an engineer to try and sort this one. You can't possibly justify "trying the motor first" if you interpret that as buying and fitting…

Zanussi washing machine error code E50

Relevance: 50%      Posted on: January 5, 2009

Zanussi washing machines can sometimes display error code E50. As John Lewis washing machines are currently also made by Zanussi some John Lewis models can also display error E50. Unfortunately this is not a "proper" error code and is not listed in error code lists. It's part of the motor fault error code group and is apparently displayed to customers, but when an engineer enters a special diagnostic display the "proper" error code will be…

LG washing machine error code OE

Relevance: 49%      Posted on: September 21, 2007

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation, but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause, but it could be…

AEG error code E35

Relevance: 48%      Posted on: November 20, 2013

Error E35 on AEG washing machines and washer dryers indicates a fault on the filling system and is described as an "Overflow" fault. The machine believes it is overfilling and takes abortive action as described later. There are several possible causes listed, many of which a diy repairer is unlikely to find helpful. The possible causes listed are Fill valve is faulty Leaks from water circuit on pressure switch Pressure switch defective Wiring defective Main…
