Error Code Condition Check/Repair Shop Parts
LF or F30 Long fill If water isn’t entering the washer, make sure that the water supply faucets are fully open. Check the fill hoses for kinks or freezing (in the winter). Check the inlet water valve screens for debris or deposits. Replace the inlet water supply valve assembly if the screens are clogged. If water is entering the tub but not being detected properly, then check the air hose between the bottom of the tub and the connection on the main electronic control board. If the air hose connection is okay, replace the main electronic control board (the water level sensor is a component of the main electronic control board).

Inlet water valve assembly, Main electronic control board
Ld or F32 Long drain time This code is displayed when the water level does not change after the drain pump runs. If the washer does not drain, check the drain hose and washer drain for a clog or restriction. Unplug the washer and check the drain pump for a clog. If the drain pump is defective, replace it. If the washer is draining properly and the drop in water level isn’t being detected, then the main electronic control board will need to be replaced.

Drain pump, Main electronic control board
uL Unbalanced load This code is steady on when an unbalanced load is detected and the washer runs a mini-cycle routine to balance the load. If the load cannot be balanced by that routine, then uL will flash and the door will unlock. You can redistribute the load and start the washer. If the tub bangs violently even with a balanced load then you may have a damaged suspension rod/spring assembly. Replace the suspension rods/springs in that situation.
Suspension Rods/Springs (replacement part has a set of 4 rods/springs -- replace all of them at once)
oL or F70 Overloaded The size of the load exceeds the washers capacity. Open the lid and remove some garments. Restart the cycle.
Sd or F71 Excessive suds Sd is displayed steady on when excessive suds is detected. The washer conducts a routine to eliminate the excessive suds. If the suds cannot be eliminated, then the Sd flashes in the display. Let the suds dissipate and then drain the washer. Use only the appropriate quantity of HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the washer.
HE detergent
lid or F81 Lid not closed or lid not opened between cycles This code appears if you press start with the lid open. It will also appear is you press Start after 2 consecutive cycles without opening the lid. If the lid lock/switch assembly isn’t properly detecting the position of the washer lid (open/closed), then replace it.

Lid lock/switch assembly
HC Hot & cold fill hoses are reversed Check the positions of the fill hoses on the back of the washer. If they are reversed, then connect them properly.
dL (F80, F82, F84 or F85) Lid lock failure Check for debris in the lid lock mechanism that could prevent it from locking. Unplug the washer and check the wire harness connections for the lid lock/switch on the main electronic control board. Examine the lid lock/switch assembly. If it’s damaged or defective, replace it.

Lid lock/switch assembly
dU or F83 Lid unlock failure Unplug the washer. Check the wire harness connections for the lid lock/switch assembly on the main electronic control board. If the connections are okay, then you will typically need to force the lid open. This will usually break the lid lock/switch assembly. Replace the lid lock/switch assembly if it’s damaged or broken.

Lid lock/switch assembly
F01 Main electronic control board failure The main electronic control board is also called the machine control board. The F1 code indicates that the control board is defective. Try to reset the control board by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. Plug it back in. This will sometimes fix the problem. If the F1 code returns after restoring power to the washer, replace the main electronic control board.

Main electronic control board
F02 User interface failure Unplug the washer. Open the console and check the wire harness connection between the main electronic control board and the user interface control board. If the wire harness connection is okay, then the user interface control board will need to be replaced.
User interface control board
F40 Water temperature thermistor failure The inlet water temperature thermistor (temperature sensor) is integrated into the inlet water valve assembly. Unplug the washer and check the wire harness connection between the main electronic control board and the thermistor on the inlet water valve assembly inside the console. If the wiring harness connection is okay, then the inlet water valve assembly will usually need to be replaced.

Inlet water valve assembly
F41 Motor RPS failure The motor RPS (Rotor Position Sensor) detects the speed of the drive motor. Unplug the washer and check the wire harness connections between the RPS and the main electronic control board. If the wire harness connections are okay, then the RPS will usually need to be replaced.
Motor RPS sensor
F44 Heater relay failed On washers with a heating element, unplug the washer and replace the main electronic control board because the heater relay on that board is defective. For washers without a heating element, replace the user interface control board because a diode on the user interface control board is defective. If you just installed a new user interface control board when this code appears, then you likely installed an incompatible user interface control board. Check the user interface control board part number and then order and install the correct part.
Main electronic control board, user interface control board
F50 Motor stalled The motor RPS (Rotor Position Sensor) detects no rotation of the drive motor. Unplug the washer. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, then examine the drive system and eliminate the cause of friction. If the basket spins freely, check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the motor. If the wire harness connections are okay, check the drive motor. If the motor is defective, replace it.

F51 Motor RPS failure The motor RPS (Rotor Position Sensor) detects the speed of the drive motor. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, then examine the drive system and eliminate the cause of friction. If the basket spins freely, unplug the washer and check the wire harness connections between the RPS and the main electronic control board. If the wire harness connections are okay, then the RPS will usually need to be replaced.
Motor RPS sensor
F52 Motor stop failure Drive motor failed to stop after the stop command from the main electronic control board. This is caused by a failure in the main electronic control board. The main electronic control board will usually need to be replaced to fix this failure.

Main electronic control
F53 Motor control over-temperature The motor control portion of the main electronic control board is overheating. This can be caused by a high current draw through the motor circuit due to excessive friction in the drive system. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, examine and repair the cause of the excessive friction. If the basket spins freely, then the drive motor and/or the main electronic control board may need to be replaced.

Drive motor, Main electronic control board
F54 Motor control overcurrent The motor control portion of the main electronic control board is drawing high current. This can be caused by excessive friction in the drive system. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, examine and repair the cause of the excessive friction. If the basket spins freely, then the drive motor and/or the main electronic control board may need to be replaced.

F72 Basket re-engagement failure The basket fails to engage the drive system for the spin mode. Check to see if the water drained out. If not, run a drain & spin routine to evacuate the water. If the basket still won't engage, check the drive system for an obstruction or failure.
