It was at the end of a wash .The machine hadn't done the last spin very well.

Hi Anne


This erro code is indicating either a main motor or a control board fault.

The most likely is that the carbon brushes are worn in the motor, and need to be replaced.

To try it again try this

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.

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.


This should get rid of the code, but if it reappears you will need to check the motor.


If you need more help, please just ask.
