Whirlpool Washing Machine 6th Sense Error Codes

DISPLAY (Saved Code)EXPLANATION AND RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE
Long Fill
error_codes (1)
(F30)
LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
• Is water supply connected and turned on?
• Are hose screens plugged?
• Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.
• See TEST #2.
Long Drain
error_codes (2)
(F32)
Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on.
• Is the drain hose or the drain pump dogged?
• Is the drain hose height greater than 96" ?
• Is the pump running? If not. see TEST #7.
Unbalanced Load
error_codes (3)
(none)
uL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an off-balance load, and is steady on while the washer runs a mini-cycle to rebalance the load.
• Display clears if mini-cycle successfully rebalanced the load.
• If the mini-cycle is unsuccessful. uL will flash until the door lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and redistribute the load.
Overloaded
error_codes (4)
(F70)
oL flashes when the machine/motor control deteds a load size that exceeds the washer's capadty. • Open the door lid to clear display, remove excess laundry, then restart the cycle.
Suds Detection
error_codes (5)
(F71)
Sd is displayed when the machine/motor control, by analyzing drag on the basket, detects a suds-lock condition, and is steady on while the control then runs a mini-clean out cycle. If the clean out cycle is unable to corred the over-sudsing problem, the cycle ends and Sd flashes in the display. This may signify:
• Excessive detergent usage.
• Basket cannot engage during drain step.
• Mechanical friction on drive mechanism, not allowing basket to engage.
Open/Close Door Lid
error_codes (6)
(F81)
Lid flashes when the following conditions occur:
• User presses START with lid open.
• User presses START after 2 consecutive machine cycles without opening lid.
• The machine/motor control cannot detect the lid switch opening and dosing properly. See TEST #8.
Pump Out (lid opened)
error_codes (7)
(none)
Po flashes when drain pump begins pumping out water from tub upon activation by the door lid having been left open for more than 10 minutes.
• Close door lid to stop drain pump.
Hot, Cold Reversed
error_codes (8)
(none)
HC flashes when the hot and cold inlet hoses are reversed.
• Make sure inlet hoses are connected correctly.
Door Lock Failure
error_codes (9)
(F80, 82. 84.85)
dL flashes if the following conditions occur
• Door lid is not closed completely due to interference.
• Wash media buildup is preventing the lock bolt from extending.
• Machine/motor control deteds open door lid switch when attempting to lock.
• Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in a locked state.
Door Unlock Failure
error_codes (10)
(F83)
dU flashes if the following conditions occur:
• Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
• Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retrading.
• Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in an unlocked state. See TEST #8.
Primary Control Failure
error_codes (11)
(F60-68)
F then 1 flashes when there is a primary control failure. Replace the machine control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
Keypad/User Interface Failure
error_codes (12)
(F2)
F then 2 flashes when in:
• Diagnostics Test mode if a stuck key is detected.
• Standby mode if there is a user interface mismatch. See TEST #4.
ATC Thermistor Open/Short
error_codes (13)
(F40)
F then 40 flashes when the ATC Thermistor is detected to be open or shorted. See TEST #5.
Motor RPS Thermistor Open/Short
error_codes (14)
(F41)
F then 41 flashes when the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) thermistor is detected to be open or shorted. See TEST #3.
NOTE: This error code is only displayed when viewing saved fault codes. See Diagnostic Test for accessing saved fault codes.
Heater Thermistor Open/Short (Not Used)
error_codes (15)
(F42)
F then 42 flashes when the heater thermistor is open or shorted.
Motor Stalled
error_codes (16)
(F50)
F then 50 flashes when the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) senses no rotation.
• Does basket turn freely? If not, make sure bottom shipping pack has been removed. Remove basket and look for foreign object. Determine cause of friction.
• If basket turns freely, see TEST #3.
Motor RPS Failure
error_codes (17)
(F51)
F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure. See TEST #3.
Motor Stop Failure
error_codes (18)
(F52)
F then 52 flashes when the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) senses rotation after stop command. See TEST #3.
Motor Control Overtemp
error_codes (19)
(F53)
F then 53 flashes when the machine/motor control detects high temperature for the motor module.
• Does basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.
• If basket turns freely, see TEST #3.
Motor Control Overcurrent
error_codes (20)
(F54)
F then 54 flashes when the machine/motor control detects high current for the motor module.
• Does basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.

error_codes (21)
(F72)
F then 72 flashes when the basket check routine fails to determine if the basket is re-engaged after being disengaged.
