What does a washing machine say?

Modern washing machines are not only ready to rid us of unpleasant and hard physical work. They are also able to carry out self-diagnostics and to signal about any malfunctions - true, in their machine language. Although in most cases it is impossible to do without the help of an experienced master who is able to provide professional assistance to an intelligent mechanism, but in certain situations you can help yourself with your washing machine (hereinafter referred to as CM) if you understand what it is asking for. The error code can be issued by a smart technician using an LCD display (if one is available) or through flashing indicators. Below are the error codes of the most popular brands (Atlant, Gorenje, ASKO, Samsung, Indesit, Ariston, Hansa, Candy, Kaiser, LG, Electrolux, Zanussi).

Error codes washing machines GORENJE

F1 - CM tries to tell you that a break or short circuit occurred in the temperature sensor circuit
F2 - This code notifies that the required amount of water has not entered the tank during the time set by the manufacturer (check the condition of the hose and the filter on the water supply)
F31 - Notification that the electronic controller does not receive signals (problems with tachogenerator)
F32 - Problems in the drive motor control system
F4 - (temperature conditions)
This code notifies that during the time set by the manufacturer the temperature of the water in the working tank has not warmed to the specified level
F41 - In this case, the actual temperature of the water in the tank has risen above the permissible value.
F43 - CM reports that the rate of increase in water temperature is not normal (above the allowable value)
F5 - Drainage problems: in this case, the CM can not ensure the discharge of water or within a specified time period the mechanism has failed to reach the "Empty tank"
F61 - CM could not provide the specified rotation speed of the drum in the "Spin" mode
F63 - There were problems with control: the electronic controller does not receive signals from the electronic mechanism of the drive motor

Error codes washing machines Atlant

“Door” - Everything is simple: problems with the door - you could not close it tightly, so the machine does not want to be washed. But this inscription can also indicate a malfunction of the lock lock, and in the most severe cases - problems with the electronic module.
F2 - Having issued such a code, the machine reports that there were problems with a temperature sensor (the most "harmless" option), with a heating TEN or with a control module.
F4 - Washing machine does not drain. Make sure that the drain hose is correctly connected, check whether the drain pump filter is clogged, and also the condition of the pump itself: the impeller should rotate absolutely freely.
F5 - Such an inscription can be illuminated with simultaneous fence and drainage of water.In this case, check the condition of the drain hose (by analogy with the situation described above) and make sure that the water supply is adequate. This refers to sufficient pressure - the reason may lie in the supply filter (make sure that it is not clogged).
F6, F9, F12 - Only the master will be able to fix the breakdown: we are talking about problems with an electric motor or electronic control
F8 - In the SM tank - increased water level. Attention should be paid to the level sensor and the condition of the solenoid valve.
SEL is an abbreviated "selector", i.e. the interface module of your CM. The appearance of this inscription means that there are problems with the program switch (the SM can also signal this by flashing indicators, as is usually the case at the end of the wash).
