We've had a new door and seal so now it doesn't appear to have a number.
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.

Hi

Ok no worries.

F43 is a motor related fault. But you can sometimes reset the control unit and see if it clears. But try it and see if this works on your model.

Turn the knob to off.

Close the door.

Turn the knob to 6 o'clock position.

Wait 2 seconds.

The start/pause should begin flashing.

(If the start button doesn't flash, just carry on trying to erase the codes).

Press and hold the spin button. (it may be marked RPM)

Turn the knob to 7 o'clock position.

Wait 2 seconds.

Release the button.

Turn the knob to off.


Try that and see if it clear it.

If it doesnt then theres a fault on the motor. Now its more then likely worn carbon brushes. But to access these you need to pull the washer out and remove the back panel.

Then you can remove the motor from the bottom of the drum.

Then either side at the back are the carbon brushes. You need to remove them and check them and see if worn. If so then you need to replace them and that should cure it.

But if the above doesnt clear the code then it has to be pulled out to fix im afraid. Theres no otherway round that part.

Let me know how it goes.

Regards

Unfortunately this hasn't worked so we will have to call out an engineer. Very frustrating as my husband is going in hospital and I've got a bad back. The joys of getting old!
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.

Sorry to hear that didnt work.

Its still picking up a fault on the motor so that will be why its not working.

If you get someone out hopefully its just worn carbon brushes and its a cheap fix for you.
