F01 appeared on display and washing machine not working.Model IWD7145.what is F01
F01 error code means motor triac fault.
Im afraid nearly always when you get the F01 error code its the main control board at the back at fault as the triacs are componments on the board.
But what you can try first is pull the washer out and remove the back panel.
There you will see the wiring to the motor. Check this and make sure the blocked is pushed on tight. Also check it for water marks on the wiring as the odd time ive found water can leak on the wiring and this causes the F01 as well.
But if that's fine then the main control board at the back in the bottom left corner will need to be replaced and programmed up to cure this.
Now the cheaper option here is to get Indesit in as they do a fixed price repair for £110 all in and for that price they will replace the board and program it up with there laptop as new boards are sold blank so needs to be programmed up with the Indesit laptop.
But that's what F01 error code means im afraid. If you need anymore info just get back to me.
