Washer Diagnostic Modes and Tests

uL Error Unbalanced Load

If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while running an imbalanced load correction routine at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press START.
If the washer is actually going out of balance on a regular basis and the load is similar weighted items at least half full. Then you likely need to replace the suspension spring rod kit.

oL Error Over Loaded (Stored Error Code F70)

Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill and begin a wash cycle. If the washer is overloaded, it will drain any water and detergent that was added during the fill. To correct the overload, remove several items and add detergent. Close lid and press START.
That’s how it should be perfect world where washing machines are constructed with quality materials. However, in this wasteful world of poor quality the inner tub may be jammed in the down position, unable to float off the drive hub because of a rusted drive shaft! Or hopefully there is just a sock or something lodged in between the inner and outer baskets causing the same result.

Washer Diagnostic Modes and Tests

Sd Error Suds Detected (Stored Error Code F71)

Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High Efficiency (“HE”) detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer’s directions. If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.

lid Error Lid Opened (Stored Error Code F81)

Is the lid open?
Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10 minutes, water in the washtub will drain.

Washer Diagnostic Modes and Tests

Po Error Pump Out (Lid Opened)

Po flashes when the lid of the washing machine has been left open for more than 10 minutes.  Close the lid to stop the drain pump.

HC Error Hot & Cold Hoses Switched

This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the hot and cold-water inlet hoses are reversed.

dL Error Door/Lid Cannot Lock (Stored Error Codes F80, F82, F84, F85)

Indicates the lid cannot lock.
Check for items caught in the lid keeping it from closing completely.
Is soap, fabric softener, or anything else keeping the lock from extending into the lid?
The control detects an open lid switch, or cannot determine if the lid is locked. Test the lid lock connection to the washer’s control board and lid lock resistance levels.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
