How to clear "lid" code on GE top loader washer? I have lifted and lowered lid 6 times, unplugged and waited, entered service mode and there is no code.

GE top loading washer and I've had this problem before, back when I first bought it used. I was able to fix the problem, using field service guide, but forgot what I did. This happens when I unplug washer for extended time-I went on vacation or when I bought it. It was working perfectly when I left.

SOURCE: od code

od code is supposed to mean that lid has not been opened for the last 3 completed cycles. Also, apparently you tried the service mode and found the door lock to be working. So, unless the problem is with the electronic board itself the only other thing that could be happening is a faulty sensing switch at the door lid or a bad connection to it. I would try shorting the leads from the switch and see if the problem goes away. Then you might just need a new switch.

SOURCE: Sony KF-50WE610 flahing red light (6 blinks)

Jeff, did you look at the Sony web site? They had a problem with 9 different TV models that were from 2003 and 2004, KF-42WE610, KF-50WE610, KF-60WE610 and 6 other models.
This is what it states: It haas come to our attention that a limited number of Grand WEGA rear projection TV's may exhibit warping to the lamp access door. In rare cases, some additional components may also become damaged as a result. and so on........
You probably have some components melted on the inside around the lamp. I have a 42 inch and I just replaced the lamp at Christmas and the door was melted shut. This is the second lamp that I have replaced, the door was starting to melt the first time. They never sent me anything about this problem, and as of today I am still trying to work something out with them. The repair shop who has it told me that it can't be repaired. The parts that are melted are not in stock and they don't make them anymore. They are supposed to get back with me and make me some kind of offer.
They will only fix this problem through March 31, 2009.

SOURCE: Washer drains but won't spin.

The next time this condition occuers, take the front panel off the machine and look under the top cover of the motor at the right front side. There is a LED light on the motor inverter board there. If it is flashing twice, then a pause, then repeating this again and again you most likely have a loose hub nut on your wash basket. (the motor reads this as belt slippage)
1. Order and install a new hub washer (WH2X1199) and a new split ring (WH2X1195) along with a new hub nut (WH2X1193). If the hub part of the basket is worn, replace that as well (plastic tub models = WH45X10027, SS tub = hub / basket WH45X10060.
2. Tighten hub nut, torque to 110 ft-lbs.
3. Clear flash code error. (your method to clear code is a bit more extreme than required, but will work)

SOURCE: F 1 code after using Jenn-Aire electric oven

F1 Defective touch pad or clock (ERC) Replace touch pad or clock (ERC). Touch pad is a more common problem.This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

GE Profile washer shows d5 how do I eliminate that so I can wash


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
D5 is a lid switch error. It comes on when there are 3 complete cycles without a lid switch actuation. Either the lid switch has failed or something is causing the lid switch to not sense lid movement. This is a proximity type switch that uses a magnet to actuate the switch. Check to see that both the switch is in place and that the lid itself is not loose at the hinge or shifted to one side.

The lid switch is item 90 of this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5130746

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3204102

You can try to unplug it for 6 minutes and plug it back in again to clear the code but if the lid switch is bad you will get the D5 code again. Not only that if you have children around it is not safe to leave the washer un-attended with a bad switch because the machine will not stop spinning in the spin cycle with a bad switch. If they lift the lid and stick their hands inside the end result can be quite horrific.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Can I reset my motor on a 6 flash code?


Let us just see what 6 flashes mean:
Aha 6 flashes: locked motor check for objects between tubs
Once yall remove the objects yall might have to reset the motor inverter to do so:

Shut off the control. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds. You might have to repeat this more than once.

How it works

Try this:

Unplug the machine, wait two minutes. Plug it back in. Open and close the lid slowly 7 times.

Did that do it?

Washer will not fill with water after it locks


Hi brittruiz07, I’m an owner like you and will try to help.

Is your machine type a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW? I need to know the model number this is important.

With this condition I assume both lid locks retract allowing you to open the lid and no water flows into the wash tub and you take no error codes to the display is this correct?

The Lid is Locked LED lit and if the water valves are not not signaled on at the start of the wash cycle this issue could be related could be related to a Control Board issue. I don't want to say failure just yet. Let's see if the Control Board will let you get into Service Mode. With no error codes to start the troubleshooting process with we need to enter Service Mode and vview machine Error Code History.

To enter Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”.
This is from the Service Manual; this process starts on page 17 in the Service Manual.
In Service Mode press the Wrinkle Control key.
The display will show a “d”.

The diagnostic codes can be viewed by using the Set Delay Time arrow keys. Pressing the Set Delay Time down arrow key will cycle down the list one code at a time each time it is pushed. Please right down each code such 4, 18, 22 etc.
If there are no error codes in the Control Board memory the display will read “- -“ that’s two dashes in the display. I feel you will have many Error Codes from previous wash cycles. I just want to get a feel for the Error Code history.
Next I want you to hard reset the Control Board by pulling the disconnecting the washer power cord for ten seconds then reconnect washer power. Go back into Service Mode and make sure all Error Codes have cleared you should only see “- -“. Press the off button to back out of Service Mode.
Start a Quick Wash cycle with minimal machine settings and no clothes in the basket.

If the washer fails to start the Quick Wash cycle as you described in your initial post how long did it take for the machine to unlock the lid? Did any water flow into the tub and were there any Error Codes sent to the display? Please go back and read the error code list and let me know what error codes you see from this Quick Wash cycle attempt. I know this is painful but we need to start somewhere.

You can pump out excess water when you fail with dc/UC unbalance errors with this process from the Service Manual.

Close the lid and enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Press the Delicates key this will lock the lid.

Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on.

Turn off the drain pump by hitting the off button or hit the Presoak key.
