The central control unit has detected a short in the motor contol unit. If a failure occurs during the high speed spin the door will be locked after 3 minutes.

Potential causes
1.Check the wire harness connections between the drive motor and the motor control unit and between the motor control unit and the central control unit.
2.Check the MCU... The mcu motor connector has 5 pins. pin 1 is at the top then 2345 going down
Pin 1 to 2 = 6 ohms
pin 1 to 3 = 6 ohms
pin 2 to 3 = 6 ohms
3.Check the Drive Motor
pin 1 to 2 = 6 ohms
pin 2 to 3 = 6 ohms
pin 1 to 3 = 6 ohms
4.Check the wire Harness

Getting a code F20 on my washer


a f-20 error code deals with the draining system mainly the long draining or lack of. open access door for pump in front , drain liquid with black drain hose. have something to absorb any water left in pump area. you can avoid this if possibly tipping the entire washer machine backwards and lean it against rear wall so the extra water that remains will be back towards the rear of unit and stays in side so you can open pump trap area to inspect it for any derbies blocking flow. look with light inside making sure nothing is in it. also use finger to feel around opening inside rt. where pump impeller is to check for turning freely and no unusual movement or blocked movement. if all checks out ok then run a spin/drain cycle to listen for unusual load noise or noises. this would mean a replacement pump needs to be installed. listen to make sure pump is being activated during this cycle request. further diagnoses would require disassembly of front control panel,front panel and door boot front door boot spring and rubber part of boot would need to be removed for access to check voltage at pump connection to ensure diagnosis that pun is the issue. no voltage to pump could be due to bad connection at main control board or the main control its self. hope this helps you and thank you for taking the time to read this.

The washer was starting spin cycle. It stopped & started huming. The door won't unlock. It has water in it. unplugging hasn't changed anything.


If it has water in it it may not unlock the door, it depends on what type of door lock is fiited as it may be a pressure type. If you can get the outlet hose out and lower it below the level of the drum to drain the water that is in it then the door may open oncethe pressure is gone.

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA54 very noisy during spin


Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.

Maytag Neptune Front Door Load, Problem


Hello Yery1975
Welcome

You said, you have a situation with my washer machine (Maytag Neptune front loader). It was making the noise several times as latching the door, then if would go off and you could not open the door, You found the under soap deposit cord but the situation is not opening the door or no, it is getting he machine to work. Whichever cycle you press, the door makes the locking noise several times, sometimes the door can not be opened and the lock door light is off, the thing is that whichever cycle you try the numbers on the electronic pad would go down several numbers and then it will again make the door locking noise and will stop there, the start button begins flashing and the machine does not wash at all on any cycle, neither it spins or rinses. Can you please, please, help me? Ohooo... some times after trying and trying get the FL code... you have tried keeping it disconnected from the electricity for long periods, plugging it back and all you can think off.... but nothing!!!

You did the right thing

The Maytag Neptune had a lot of very different defects that Maytag was, and is aware of still.
That is why they discontinued that model .
But if you call Maytag service this time, you may find that it will be one of those defects in their design and an authorized Maytag person will recognize which fault is taking place.
perhaps they may cover the parts if you bring it to their attention.

Thank You

Hotpoint bwm129 making huming noise


Sounds like the rinse water can't come. Maybe the solenoid for cold water got stuck or a water filter needs cleaning? If the humming is louder, perhaps the drum motor (or drum) needs a little care or cleaning.

If all else fails, download the user manual and check the trouble checklist index. (Or; try learning your kenpo succession move sparring against laundry to clean it.)
