WASHING MACHINE KEEPS DISPLAYING ERROR CODE
Older washing machines never used to be as hi tech as the ones we find today, nor did they have the array of programmes to choose from. It is certainly true that modern washing machines can do much more in terms of the variety of programmes, timer settings and other add ons that people have become accustomed to. With digitial displays on most washers it is simple to select a programme for a load of washing and away you go. When things go wrong it’s typically possible to determine the problem from an error code on the digital display. When a washer is displaying error then it is telling you that something isn’t quite right.
Error codes can usually be translated by knowing what the code means or looking it up in the user manual. The code that is being displayed could range from something very simple that can be easily rectified to something more serious that could require a technician. A washer that displays error codes is trying to communicate and the chances are the machine won’t work until the problem is resolved. Some people aren’t keen on modern washer, preferring that a washer would still work despite a problem but actually it is the machines way of protecting parts and preserving the machine’s longevity.
Common appliance codes could be related to a problem with the door, a water heating sensor, a software or circuit board fault, a motor or pump fault plus much more. Simple things that could have an error code could be the door being left ajar on the machine or the detergent drawer not in situ properly.
To preserve the life of a washer and prevent the appliance from displaying error codes it is worth taking care of it. Using a washer-dryer inappropriately, overloading it or expecting it to deal with oversize item are all likely things to cause problems. Using a washing incorrectly is not normally likely to break it immediately but you could be storing up problems further down the line and let’s face it having a broken washer is very inconvenient. Treating your machine to regular servicing and using a special cleaner to ensure parts don’t get clogged up is usually recommended.
