Fault Code Guide
Free Edition
All content Copyright (©) 2011 UK Whitegoods Limited
Welcome to the UK Whitegoods Fault Code Guide
The book is intended to be a reference work giving as many fault codes and diagnostic
procedures as is possible for the first time ever in one easy to use manual.
In this document we have collated much of the information that has been shared within the
community that has formed on the UK Whitegoods website and, whilst we strive to ensure that
the data contained in this book is as accurate as possible, because it is often gained in the
field very often and not from the manufacturer’s own published information, we cannot
guarantee 100% accuracy in every instance.
Service tips, hints and shortcuts are provided in the main by field service engineers that have
found easy ways to tackle known problems or easier ways to do a job etc. many of which we
have gleaned from years of free technical advice in the web forums.
With this in mind please realise that this book is an great resource for all service engineers
and we hope to build it over time even further, but we cannot be held liable for incorrect
information.
We have taken the decision to make this publication freely available to all but we would ask
that you remember this and that you use UK Whitegoods for spare parts, the Whitegoods
Trade Association for finding an engineer if you need one and ISE if you fancy a good washing
machine or dryer. Without these companies assistance this book would not be possible, we
need support from you to keep the information available and update it as it is a very time
consuming task.
We hope the book is useful and solves some of the problems that you encounter in the field.

LED Symbols
As we all are most likely well aware, manufacturers use all sorts of different symbols
and graphics to, basically, say the same thing. In many cases we have simplified this
as well as a lot of the “gobble-de-gook” instructions provided and tried to present
simple, clear instructions on how to read the faults or use the diagnostic routines.
So we have some simple graphics for the lit/unlit/flashing LEDs that we often find
used as follows:
Lit LED, lamp or
light
Unlit LED, lamp or light
Flashing LED, lamp or light

Amica
Amica Washing Machine (Polish Production)
Error signalling specification of PB, PD or AWC(S)M washing machines.
The electronic system features self-test functions which detect faults or incorrect
functioning of the washing machine. The electronic controller of the „amica digital”
washing machine additionally features a large LCD which indicates errors and faults
in a clear and easily readable manner by displaying the letter „E” and the error code.
Theoretically, up to 99 different errors can be indicated in this way, however in
practice only about a dozen codes are used.
After switching off, the washing machine memorises the last detected error and in
order to erase the error from the memory (so that it is possible to use the washing
machine again) the error indication must be reset by pressing the START button for
about 3 seconds.
Caution! Resetting the error indication does not rectify the fault but only erases from
the controller memory the information that the error was detected! The error message
only describes the detected malfunction but does not specify the faulty component!
All of the errors below may also occur if any cables or electronic circuits are damaged
(this is not stated for each item in the table).
Caution! Each detected fault causes the doors to lock. The doors can only be unlocked
by resetting the error indication or switching the washing machine off with the mains
switch.
Code Direct cause Action taken by the controller Possible causes of the malfunction
E01 No feedback signal from door interlock
After 15 seconds the E01 code is displayed and the wash programme is terminated

Toptronic PG Washing Machine Test Procedure
The servicing mode is a function of the machine that enables checking the operation
of individual machine components and functions separately. This is not a self-test for
detecting defective components, but only some assistance for the service technician
in diagnosing the fault.
Inflow and outflow of water and power supply is required for carrying out full test.
Certain checks do not require water.
Part I
Test start – switch to servicing mode
To secure against accidental launching, the servicing test is started with a special
combinatio of dialing and pressing the EXTRA RINSE” and “SPIN OFF”:
Servicing Test Access Steps:
1. The machine must be in „READY” mode.
2. Set the selector in position 12 “SOFT RINSE”
3. Press the “extra rinse” and “spin off” buttons simultaneously and hold them while
setting the following positions in the given sequence:
12,11,12,11,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
4. The “start/pause” LED starts to blink in red from position 9, showing that test
programmes are being launched. Release the “extra rinse” and “spin off" buttons but
continue the setting sequence as above.
5. Press the “spin off” button before switching to last position of sequence, i.e.
position 1. Then, the machine will go to MANUAL TEST mode, which is signaled by
yellow blinking of the “start/pause” LED.
6. To switch off test mode, press the “extra rinse” and “spin off” buttons
simultaneously again in MANUAL TEST mode.
Part II
Washing machine testing. Ending the service test.
The machine is tested as follows:
- turn the programme selector knob to the desired position – Note: do not turn
through positions 10 to 12;
- press and release the „START/PAUSE” button
- note the machine behavior – only the “START/PAUSE” LED will stay on during this
step, the other LEDs being off;
- the test step can be interrupted through pressing the “extra rinse” and “spin off”
buttons simultaneously again
- before selecting next test step, interrupt (end) the previous step.
- the door lock is only powered when the selected test step has been launched.
14 | P a g e
www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk
©2011 UK Whitegoods Limited
- if you choose position 10, 11 or 12, the test will terminate without pressing
“START/PAUSE” unless the machine is just performing a test step.
Tests on individual selector positions
Item Test: Execution:
1 Filling the machine to pressure control via wash compartment Applying supply
voltage to EV2 solenoid valve (to the right side when looking from machine front
perspective). Voltage is disengaged when pressure control is switched.
2 Filling the machine without level control via rinse compartment Voltage applied to
both solenoid valves. Note: when pressure control overflow level is reached, the
machine quits the servicing mode and displays error 4 - overfilling.
3 Filling the machine without level control via pre-wash compartment Voltage applied
to EV1 solenoid valve. See note to item 2.
4 Pump test / water drainage Supply voltage applied to pump, draining takes ca. 80s
after detecting the “empty” signal.
5 Heater test: heating up to preset temperature. Any temperature can be set, 40C is
proposed. More water is taken to the pressure control level via EV1 valve and heater
relay goes on. The relay goes off when the selected temperature is achieved.
6 Engine test: washing movements. The drum engages in washing movements: 12
seconds at a rate of ca. 53 rpm, 3 seconds break. Movements are alternately to the
right and to the left, first movement clockwise.
7 Engine test: spin-drying cycle – rate can be selected Water is drained (voltage
applied to pump) and spin-drying cycle is carried out as in wash programme 8 of the
machine.
8 Door lock activation. Only the door lock is on.
Error signalling specifications for PG – LED washing machines
Rev.00, 11.10.2007 – concerning washing machines featuring programme PG1.03 or
later
The electronic system has certain machine self-test functions for detecting damage or
improper behavior of the washing machine. Electronic controller of PG machine – the
LED indicates any errors and defects detected through combinations of additional
function LEDs, “start/reset” button LEDs and “on/off” button LEDs. Theoretically, this
enables signaling of up to 9 different errors.
After power shutdown, the machine memorizes the last error found. To delete the
error from memory (and continue using the machine), you need to delete error signal.
Press the ON/OFF button and hold it for about 2 seconds, then turn off the machine.
Note! Deleting the indication does not remove the source of error. It only deletes error
detection information from controller memory! Error indication only shows that
something wrong has been found, but it does not specify the actual part that is
damaged! All the signals mentioned below may also occur in case of cable damage or
electronic system damage (which is not mentioned in every section).
15 | P a g e
www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk
©2011 UK Whitegoods Limited
Note! The door will be locked in case of detecting any error. You may only unlock the
door through deleting error indication (turn off the machine) or disconnect the power
cord.
Note! Most of the above mentioned errors may also occur in case of damage to the
quad (broken quad, short circuit, connection block damage) connected to the given
electric circuit.
Error codes in the table below are signaled by relevant LEDs going on. Red
START/PAUSE LED on always indicates a fault.

display. Actual freezer display and error code/codes are shown in sequence.
E0 (Freezer sensor failure):
- Entry: If measured sensor value is open circuit or short circuit
- Behaviour during error: Compressor and freezer fan run continuously. Freezer bar-graph
display will be off.
- Exit: If the sensor value is correct (not open or short) error is omitted.
E1 (Freezer defrost sensor failure):
- Entry: If measured sensor value is open circuit or short circuit
- Behaviour during error: Defrost heater will be switched on for 25min. during normal defrost.
- Exit: If the sensor value is correct (not open or short) error is omitted.
E3 (Fridge sensor failure):
- Entry: If measured sensor value is open circuit or short circuit
- Behaviour during error: Baffle should be opened for 3min. and closed for 7 min. Fridge bargraph display will be off.
- Exit: If the sensor value is correct (not open or short) error is omitted.
E4 (Defrost heater failure):
- Entry: If defrost time is equal to the maximum defrost time of 60min. for 3 consecutive
defrosts this error is shown.
- Behaviour during error: Control runs defrost heater normally.
- Exit: When a defrost finishes shorter than maximum time of 60min error is omitted.
E8 (Ice sensor failure):
- Entry: If measured sensor value is open circuit or short circuit
- Behaviour during error: Ice machine should not operate.
- Exit: If the sensor value is correct (not open or short) error is omitted.
E9 (Ice machine failure):
- Entry: If switch does not change as described during initialisation or, while rotating ice
machine, if SW position does not change in 1 minute
- Behaviour during error: Ice machine should not operate.
- Exit: If ice-off is selected, or if during initialisation switch changes as described.
When the failure is corrected the error code will disappear on the display and control will run
according to normal related algorithm.
After a power interruption, error codes should be remembered.
After an initial power-up, error codes, except heater error, should not be remembered. (Heater
error should be remembered)
Error codes are cleared after a self-test.

BELLING DISHWASHER FAULT CODES
E1 - If the water inlet valve has worked for 4 mins and the flowmeter detects that not enough
water has entered the Dishwasher (3.5l) the the control board will shut down all functions and
the alarm buzzer will sound for 30 secs and "E1" will be displayed on the control panel, the
Dishwasher will pause for 3 mins and then drain out the water for 90 secs and revert to the
rest position.
E3 - A. If the heating element is still heating after the allowed time, then the control board will
advance the programme to next step and at the end of the washing cycle the alarm buzzer will
sound for 30 sec and the display will show E3.
B. When the contol board detects that the heating element is operating during a non heating
step or during the internal test the heating circuit is found to be open circuit then the alarm
buzzer will sound for 30 sec and the control board will cease all functions except for the drain
cycle which will run for 90 seconds and then E3 will be displayed on the contol panel.
E4 - Any time that the float chamber micro switch operates for more than 2 secs the control
board will shut down all functions and operate the drain pump for 30 secs and then sound the
alarm buzzer for 30 secs and the control panel displays E4. If the microswitch sets during the
draining period then the control board will allow the dishwasher to function normally again , or
the dishwasher will then revert to constant draining until the micro switch returns to normal
rest position.
E6 - If after the control board has carried out an internal test and found the thermister open
circuit the dishwasher will cease all functions and the alarm buzzer will sound for 30 secs and
the control panel will display E6 after a further 3 mins the machine will operate the drain
pump for 90 secs and revert to rest position.
E7 - If after the control board has carried out an internal test and found the thermister short
circuit the dishwasher will cease all functions and the alarm buzzer will sound for 30 secs and
the control panel will display E7 atfer a further 3 mins the machine will operate the drain
pump for 90 secs and revert to the rest position.

CDA
Whirlpool Manufactured Dishwashers
The CDA CW492 and 494 models were made by Whirlpool so these codes and test procedures
will also apply to some Whirlpool models as well as some early Tecnik (TKD795), Hygena and
Diplomat dishwashers as well.
Test procedure
If there is a fault on the appliance then this will be indicated by a rapidly flashing “Start” LED
and by beeping at one second intervals.
1. Open the door, the failed fault will be indicated, the test procedure cannot be initiated
whilst a fault is displayed.
2. Unplug the faulty component from the control board and check it.
3. When the fault component is repaired or replaced restart the appliance to delete the
fault.
Check for short circuits! Short circuits on components can damage the main PCB
Check that none of the electronic boards (PCBs) are wet as this can cause damage.
Failures, which occurred during the program will be stored and indicated by flashing the start
LED or digit
related to the failure table.
To erase the failures, push the start button and hold for at least 1.5 seconds.
The failures
Fl
F2
F9
NTC break
Water Leak
Continuous Water Inlet
These are checked and indicated immediately after the program starts so these failures have
to be repaired before you can run the test program. The components get their feed via triac
from the PCB. To test the component a voltmeter must be connected in parallel to the
component. If the component is disconnected, then the output voltage from the PCB is
reduced.

Fault Codes & Causes
FO Sensor failure (when a dirt sensor is installed)
Will not be indicated to the customer. The programs will finish even if there is a failure. The failure is
indicated only in the active test program after 10 - 30 seconds. The active test program will cancel as
well, if there is a failure. If the failure in a sensor program appears, the machine will always choose the
highest consumption (best cleaning result).
•
•
No or wrong output from the sensor
Illogical or unreal measurement results
Reason
•
•
•
•
Defective electronics in the sensor
Optoelectronic parts in the sensor defective

F8 - Water Level Failure
Failures are supervised over the whole program. Mechanical water indicator WI Spray pump works, the
WI switches more than 20 times in 2 minutes back
Optical Water Indicator
Always after the OWI - signal is missing the electrical components are turned off for 5 sec. If after the 5
sec. the OWl-Signal is still not present then it notes a failure F8. If, however, after the 5 sec the OWlSignal is present, then the water-level is filled to 6 Ltr. and the electrical components are again turned
on. After the OWl signal is missing for a second time note an F8 failure.
•
•
•
•
•
WI defect? Should switch on after approximately a 1 litre intake of water
Filter blocked
Water foaming giving false reading
Pot has turned off and is filled with spray water

If the electronics signals of the flow meter for the 3,4 Ltr of water has been received on permanent wash
system and 2,5 Ltr on alternating wash system and the OWl signal
“Water in the sump” is missing then take note
•
•
Lens will be cleaned. Water inlet off for 10 Sec and SPM on for 10 Sec.
If after that there is still no signal “Water in sump”, then the appliance goes into failure mode FA
FB MDV (Motor Diverter) - Failure
Failure condition
Start water inlet. After 1.5 sec switches the WI if not then within 120 sec. a signal comes from the MDV
to the control board, lower or upper spray arm is functioning, then the FB will indicate
Check:
Do the upper and Iower spray arms alternate turns in approx 30-40 sec.? If only one turns then there is a
failure.
Is the diverter disc in the sump blocked? Yes, unblock it.
Does 230V come from the control board (ZW,DVH) to the MDV? If not then change the PCB.
41 | P a g e

Indesit Group Products
One of the largest manufacturers in the world Indesit are very protective of their service information across the
Hotpoint, Indesit and Ariston brands. In this section we cover the most common faults that we have encountered that
have had little or no explanation before now.
Indesit uses what appears to be a more or less standard software for the machines now known as “EVO2” across
which there is much commonality in the fault codes for laundry appliances. However, some do vary from appliance to
appliance with codes used or not as applicable depending on the specification and features available. For much more
on this software please refer to page 27.
There also appears to be almost a paranoia about loose connections to the PCBs in these machines so it may be well
worth making sure that you have good connections to the boards before condemning them.
In the next edition we hope to add more information about the EEPROMs.
Indesit washer and washer dryers with rotary dial
This appears to be a variation of the EVO2 software.

EVO II (Ultima) Three Phase Motor
The new range of EVOII washing machines has a machine fitted with three-phase motor.
Compared with the commutator motor there are no brushes and the stator is delta connected
internally as shown in the diagram below.
Compared with models fitted with a traditional commutator motor the power card is different
and becomes a special code for three-phase machines.
The three-phase motor has a thermal protector that cuts in turning off the supply to the power
part of the electronic card and also to the motor.
The diagram below shows you the connection diagram of the windings as well as the pin
assignments to the motor.

EVO2 Software Fault Finding
As stated Indesit (Hotpoint, Ariston etc.) use a software in the machines that appears on many of their machines so,
whilst the machines may differ slightly in terms of specification, features and EEPROM used the same basic core
software seems to be used across a wide range of machines. This makes life a bit easier on these products in some
ways as there are common elements and failures to a lot of these machines as listed below.
NOTE: Modules used in production do not have replaceable EEPROMS. If you have to replace a module for a machine
that does not have a plug in EEPROM then you will have to order both the module and the EEPROM as separate parts.
If the EEPROM is in a socket then it is replaceable without changing the PCB.
Please be aware that you may have to adapt the connectors to each machine by tracing the wiring, but this should
make that much easier to do.
Erroneous Faults
There are instances where the machine will not work but no error code is displayed. The natural course is to assume
that the module is faulty, but there are several things that can be looked at before reaching this conclusion:
•
No water supply to the machine – Check
•
Inlet valve/s faulty – Check
•
Some motor faults cause the machine to allow the door to lock but appears dead otherwise
o
Check motor field windings
o
Check carbons
o
Check wiring loom and connectors
•
If the motor TOC operates during a wash program the machine will stop mid-cycle and not display a fault
code. When the TOC resets the program will restart.
•
If the wash heater fails whilst mid cycle and the pressure switch reading “full” then a fault may not be
displayed but the machine will wash for an extended period
Please note these simple faults if you come across a machine that appears to have a dead PCB.
Additional Fault Code Information
F01 – Motor Triac Short
•
Check motor continuity
•
Check the connector on the PCB for the motor (often J9)
•
If these fail change EEPROM or module as applicable
F02 – Motor jammed or tacho failure
•
Check that the motor is not seized or similar type damage
•
Check the connector on the PCB for the motor (often J9)
•
Check tacho for continuity (170Ω ??)
•
If applicable check contacts 6 and 7 on J9 connector
•
If all the above fails then change the EEPROM and/or PCB
F03 – Wash Heater Thermistor Fault
NOTE: the heater relay stuck can also cause this problem and this fault is only signalled when the machine fills to
level and the pressure switch activates to signal that level has been reached.
•
Check connectors to module (often J3 and J8) are secure
•
Check Thermistor
•
Check heater
•
Check wiring loom
•
Where applicable remove connector J3 and check contacts 1, 2 and 4
•
Check the resistance of the thermistor, at room temperature (20°C) this should give a reading of around
20KΩ
F04 – Pressure switch jammed, empty
The machine will fill constantly until the overfill protection is reached when the water level reaches, approximately,
half way up the door glass. At that point the drain pump will kick in on the overflow contacts from the pressure switch.
•
Check pressure switch connector on module (often J3)
•
Check pressure switch connector or connections

NOTE: In high humidity conditions where condensation forms F08 may be displayed
F09 – Setup Error
•
If the module has a soldered in EEPROM replace module and EEPROM
•
If the EEPROM is the plug-in type then check that the EEPROM is properly in position
•
If all the above fails then change the EEPROM and/or PCB
F10 - Pressure Switch Failure
If the machine can be started and will fill see if the water levels are correct.
•
Check pressure switch connection on PCB (often J3)
•
If applicable check contacts 1,2 and 4 on connector J3 are good
•
Check pressure switch wiring and connections
•
If all the above fails then change the EEPROM and/or PCB

Service Notes For EVO2 based machines
Anti-interference filter
Mounted at the back of many EVO2 based machines the anti-interference filter, or mains filter as it is often known, is
usually bolted to the back of the cabinet close to the mains inlet and terminal block. If this filter goes open circuit then
there is often no motor action and no code (as far as we know) displayed to indicate the nature of the failure.
Please check this on “no motor action” faults before replacing the PCB.
Faults that do not show a fault code
•
•
•
•
•
Water turned off at the tap or inlet valve open circuit
Some motor faults such as faulty carbons, plug out. The machine will lock but not start.
Open field coil will show fault F01
Motor TOC operates during the cycle, machine will restart when the TOC resets
Wash element goes OC when full and operating. Will continue to wash.

Additional info for Hotpoint dryer Model CTD40 This uses the same codes as CTD80/85 but does not have a digital
display The codes are displayed by flashing the ON/OFF neon and a combination of the top four left hand neon’s and
the Post Crease Care neon. Each neon has a numerical value.
The Post Crease Care neon = 16
The top left hand neon
=8
The Second neon down
=4
The Third neon down
=2
The fourth neon down
=1
The bottom neon is not used for fault codes.
You add the value of the flashing neon’s and compare them to the fault codes for the CTD80/85
For example Neon’s second & fourth from top are 4+1 = 5 this gives you fault code F05 and so on.

correctly i.e. hard water problems
Fan Triac &/or Heater malfunction closed/open circuit -. Wash Cycle completes but with poor Drying
EPROM malfunction - appliance finishes cycle before it is completed & stops.
Should a fault occur in use, the Fault Codes above will be displayed & should initially be used as a guide in your
diagnosis.. Note that after switching on the machine upon your arrival, a short delay may occur before that fault is
displayed.
How to determine the date code
Serial No. 9 10 02 0895 for example is
First digit = year of manufacture - 1999
Second two digits = month of manufacture - October
Third two digits = Day of manufacture- 2nd October
Fourth remaining digits = Build number that day - 895
The 'Code' number on the rating plate identifies the factory etc , vital for correct parts ID.
Hotpoint two digit date codes from December 2003 to July 2006 start at 24 for December 2003
through to 55 for July 2006. Generally Hotpoint date codes only went up to 96 then started again.
Many years ago some machines did go past 96, but I have not seen any for a long time. You can
work back from DC24-Dec 2003, to get any earlier months.
They are normally the first two numbers of the serial number. Many years ago they used to be the
last two numbers, often in bold or slightly apart from first five or six digits.

Hotpoint Cooker Codes
Range / Stove / Oven Fault Codes Failure Code Fault Code Description
F0 Stuck touch pad Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called
clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be cancelled,
replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.
F1 Stuck touch pad Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called
clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be cancelled,
replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both. Refer to F1 test at the
top of this page for more information.
F2 During BAKE Control senses oven temperature above 615F-630F If actual over temperature
condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens,
replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other
cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness
and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.
Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven
temperature.
F2 During CLEAN Control senses oven temperature above 915F-930F If actual over
temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven
control (also called clock or ERC).
If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other
cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness
and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.
Check door lock switches.
Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven
temperature.
F3 or F4 Open or shorted oven temperature sensor (RTD) Check sensor harness and harness
connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if
wiring is ok.
F7 Stuck touch pad or bad clock Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control
(also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be
cancelled, replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC), touch pad, or both.
F9 Lock switch Check wiring to door lock switch (the wire harness may be connected wrong).
Check for stuck lock switch.

Overfill/flooding
It is worth noting that these dishwashers suffer from extremely poor reliability problems,
recalls are highly likely!
Multi-function Tablets – Chinese Dishwashers
It is also worth pointing out that these machines are very prone to “overfill” problems. This
has been found in the field to be caused largely due to the use of multi-function tablets as they
can “over foam” on the rinse cycle and cause flooding into the base. Both the Haier and Midea
produced dishwashers seem to be prone to this issue.
Should the customer use rinse aid as well as a multi-function tablet with a rinse aid function,
then the overfill condition can be reached far quicker and more severely.
The other cause of this can be the customer opening the door whilst the machine is on, for
example to add an item once the program has started, as this causes a temperature
differential, increases the interior pressure and forces water into the overflow flooding the
base. That’s the official explanation, what we’ve found is that the machines are often poorly
installed and opening the door causes a “wave” to the front which drains into the overflow and
floods the base. Ask the customer if they do this and, if they do, tell them not to open the door
once the program has started.

ISE5 – CI555WH
Error codes can be observed during a functional test and in fault code test mode.
Fault codes are displayed on the LED’s as shown above and are coded, in brackets, after each code to
indicate the LED’s that will be lit where 1 = on and 0 = off. So for H1 for example, the “Ready” LED will
be on whilst the “Wash” and “Spin” will both be off.
H1 : NTC OPEN OR SHORT CIRCUIT ( 100 )
H2 : HEATER OPEN CIRCUIT ( 010 )
H3 : HEATER ALWAYS ON ( 110 )
H4 : VALVE TRIAC SHORT CIRCUIT ( 001 )
H5 : PUMP OPEN OR SHORT CIRCUIT ( 101 )
H6 : MOTOR TRIAC SHORT CIRCUIT ( 011 )
H7 : WATER LEVEL SENSOR FAILURE ( 111 )
PS : THE ERROR CODES GIVEN ABOVE DOES NOT ALWAYS MEAN REASON FOR THE FAILURE IS THE
DEFINED COMPONENT
ALWAYS CHECK THE CONNECTORS AND WIRING FIRST TO SEE IF THE CAUSE OF
THE FAILURE IS A DISCONNECTION OR SOMETHING SIMILAR.
FAILURE CODE TEST MODE
To enter the test mode:
Press the first auxiliary function button from the left for 6 seconds. “Run/ Pause/Cancel” led will start
blinking and the program followers will start blinking as an error code for 3 seconds if any failure routine
has run.
After 3 seconds, the machine will return to the selection mode.
Clearing the error code:
After entering the failure code observing mode, pressing and holding “Run/ Pause/Cancel” button for a
short time will erase the error code from the memory. After you complete your inspection, if you are not
84 | P a g e
www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk
©2011 UK Whitegoods Limited
sure that you have solved the problem and if you are going to change the electronic card group, do not
erase the error code so that we may investigate any failures.
For all other cases, you may erase the error code.
Functional Test Program
Entrance to the test mode
1. Turn off the machine at the On/Off Switch
2. Turn on the machine from the On/Off Switch, whilst pressing and holding the
“start/pause/cancel” button. ~The start LED will start to blink within 3 seconds.
3. At this point, you will see the failure code displayed in the progress indication LEDs (as
shown below)
4. After noting the failure, you can clear the fault code by pressing and holding the
start/pause/cancel button for 3 seconds or longer
5. After clearing the fault code, you will be in the functional test mode. Each push to the
start/pause/cancel button will represent one function of the test sequence as listed below
NB. At stage 2 if no fault indicated by a code there may be a fault not logged by the PCB please then
got to stage 4
Functional Test Sequence
1. All LEDs on the board will start to blink after the door is locked.
2. Take in water from pre-wash compartment
3. Take in water from main wash compartment
4. Take in water from softener compartment (Both pre-wash and main wash valves are active)
5. Not used on the ISE CI555WH please skip if required by pressing to advance
6. The heater will be switched ON. Please note that if there is insufficient water to perform
this test the valves will be energized and the machine will fill to accommodate the test
7. Clockwise motor rotation with 52 rpm
8. Counterclockwise motor rotation with 52 rpm
9. Drain cycle followed by spinning up to maximum speed.
10. Turn on all the valves to fill a certain level in a short time for water leakage test on the
production line.

All Hygena and Diplomat dishwashers are “branded”, that is to say that MFI do not produce
their own appliances, they are bought in from various manufacturers so, when you check one
and the code is not listed here please also see the following:

MFI Diplomat- Smeg E2 code
Lots has been written about the infamous “E2” fault but it will generally be caused by one of
only a few failures although, in theory, there are anything up to twelve points of failure that can
cause this error to be displayed.
TIP: Look in sump area about the 12 o’clock position. if there is a rubber flap valve take it off
and throw it away this should solve problem if not you possibly need a new water break kit.
TIP: Remove the right hand side panel (from front) to access the air break chamber. Remove
and clean with a flexible bottle brush then refit, if this does not cure the problem then fit a new
air break chamber or air break chamber kit.
NOTE: See also the Smeg section for more

Servis UK
Servis UK is actually made by a company called Antonio Merloni, the brother of Vitorio Merloni
who owns Indesit.
The washer dryers especially are seen on a fair range of brands including Hygena and
Diplomat sold through Howdens Joinery and, obviously MFI stores. In addition a lot of Hygena,
Diplomat and Schrieber refrigeration is Antonio Merloni produced.
Many of the new machines are seen sold under the Electra brand name.

Motor fault
Heater fault (shows during wash prog )
Test Cycle
This is a special programme to be used only by service engineers in conjuction with their
specialised test equipment.
Fault Diagnosis
A unique capability of your SERVIS QUARTZ PLUS is the ability to diagnose its own faults
should they occur.
All the functions and operations that make up each programme are continually monitored and
should any fault develop, the machine will display a fault code and in some places will stop the
programme. The fault code will consist of the letter 'F' and a number flashing alternately.
The fault codes are primarily intended for the guidance of the service engineer but, in some
cases, there may be some corrction you, the customer, can make. This is indicated in the list
below. If however, it is necessary to report a fault, please state the machine model number
and the fault code. See your Consumers Charter for service addresses and telephone numbers.
F1
THE WATER TEMPERATURE CIRCUIT IS FAULTY - Call the engineer.
NOTE: The fault code will not appear until the programme is finished.
F2
THE MACHINE TAKES TOO LONG TO FILL.
Customer Action:
1. Check that the taps are turned on fully.
2. Check the filler hose - if it is kinked, reposition it to remove the kink and reselect the
programme.
3. It may be that your house water pressure is low. If so, switch off electricity, switch on again
and reselect proigramme to continue filling process. If fault persists call the engineer.
106 | P a g e
www.ukwhitegoods.co.uk

F3
THE MACHINE HAS FAILED TO PUMP OUT THE WATER BEFORE SPINNING THE CLOTHES
DRY.
Customer Action:
Check outlet hose - if it is kinked reposition it to remove the kink. Press 'CANCEL' button to
remove the water then follow up with 'H' for normal fabrics or 'L' for delicate fabrics.
F4
THE MOTOR IS RUNNING TOO FAST OR TOO SLOW.
Sometimes this code may appear during the final spin of a very heavy load, for example;
absorbant cotton towels, duvets or sleeping bags.
Customer Action:
1. Press the 'CANCEL' button and hold until all the water is pumped out.
2. Select 'H' FAST SPIN ONLY, press the start button. If F4 is repeated, call the engineer.
F5 and F6
THERE IS A FAULT IN THE HEATER CIRCUIT - Call the engineer. If the programme stops and
you wish to take the clothes out hold the 'CANCEL' button in for 1 imnute, then release The
clothes can then be removed when the door light glows.
Single Bar Sign
The single bar sign - which appears when the door is open may remain when you close the
door. If this happens, it signifies that the door is not properly closed. Push the door fully home
until it clicks and the Zero sign '0' appears on the display.

During 2007 Servis UK are rumoured to be introducing a range of machines fro which
specialist diagnostic equipment is required to effect a repair!
Which they did and it was known as Janus, then Servis went bust.
Without the Janus programmer it is not possible to reprogram some modules and the
machine is rendered unrepairable.

Test Cycle For Freestanding And Built In E5 Generation
Before starting ensure that the dishwasher is empty by cancelling the program down, do this by holding down button
“1” until the first three LEDs in Bank 1 light. That machine will then drain down and you will se that the program has
ended when the first four LEDs on Bank C flash.
Starting The Test
Close the door and select the “soak” program, to do this press button “1” and the fist LED on Bank 1 will light.
Press “Start/Pause”, button “9” and the second (program indication) LED in Bank C will start to flash. Then hold
down the “Start/Pause” until the LED becomes steady and the buzzer sounds, this should take about thirty seconds.
Release within three seconds when this happens.
Press the “Start/Pause” again to confirm that you wish to run the test cycle and the following program LEDs will flash
to confirm the operation as shown below:
Normal Wash system
Alternate Wash system
If the LEDs do not shows as above then the test procedure has not been correctly initiated and you will have to start
again.
To exit the test cycle simple power the machine off.
The following page details what happens during the test cycle.

The Famous “E2” Error
Smeg tells us that this error is caused by “breakdown water level”, very helpful.
From UK Whitegoods articles written by Chris Chantrell:
E2 specifically means that the water level safety system has been activated. In plain
English, this means an overfill, and the secondary water level switch has been activated.
To explain the problem fully, a brief description of how the fill system works follows.
Water is introduced to the machine via a solenoid controlled water valve. This is switched
initially by the computer board (“Timer” in SMEG-ese). The water is routed through a fill
matrix on the right hand side of the appliance. This contains various channels and
chambers which may be filled as the programme requires; the rest of the water being
allowed to run down and through a transfer tube into the sump of the machine (the area
covered by the filters). As the water level rises, air is displaced from two “collecting
chambers”. One of these acts as the displacer to the water level control switch, the second
is the safety, or overfill switch. The switches are operated by air pressure.
The problems arise because food deposits build up initially in the transfer tube, and latterly in the fill matrix itself. This restricts
the free flow of water into the machine and causes water to back up and operate the safety system. There is no circulation
pressure in this particular water circuit, so there is nothing to wash the detritus away.
In my experience, 9 out of 10 instances of the “E2” problems can be solved by identifying the transfer tube and cleaning it out.
Looking into the sump area without the filters, you should spot a tube with a black rubber flap at the end. This is the one to be
cleaned out. Methods which have been discussed include long stout Tyraps, skinny long-handled bottle brushes and blasting
water or air down the tube through a fine hose. The net result is a surprising amount of crud arriving in the sump of the
machine. This is actually a good sign as it indicates that deposits are being removed.
However, on occasion, the fill matrix itself can become choked. It can be removed and to our certain knowledge people have
used garden hoses, even jet washers to try and dislodge the goo, with varying degrees of success. The only guaranteed repair
at this point is to replace the matrix and ensure that crockery is rinsed of any heavy detritus before washing to ensure that there
is no repetition.
However, in experience as a Smeg and MFI agent for many years we have found that in 9/10 cases the side fill
chamber, or matrix, will be blocked. Often this can be cleaned with some really hot water and a good flexible bottle
brush however, if that fails to clear the fault then the matrix will likely need replaced.
Access the matrix by removing the right hand side panel (looking from the front).
The list of possible failures, given by Smeg, are as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
•
pressure switch level defective
rubber pressure switch bad positioned (LS97)
difficulty of starting or pump washing breakdown
presence of water in the tube safety pressure switch
loading electric valve with elevated course
electronic card that doesn't succeed in reading the signal of height
This advice will also apply to machines produced by Smeg for the likes of Teka, Hygena, Diplomat and so on.

Whirlpool Side-By-Side US Styled Fridge Freezers
Diagnostics information to help with fault finding on US-styled Whirlpool fridge freezers.
Test Procedures
Normally when the freezer door is opened the receiver will flash twice, pause for a second then repeat. This would
indicate that the optical system is okay and working as it should be.
Diagnostic Mode
•
•
•
•
•
Turn the machine off at the mains and leave off for at least 60 seconds
Close the freezer door for the duration
Power the machine back up from the mains
Open the freezer door and observe the LED and it should operate as detailed above indicating normal
operation of the system
If you push on the emitter flap door and the optical path is clear then the LED should light solid indicating
that there is no fault.
From power up you have 60 seconds to run the diagnostic before normal operation is resumed.
Diagnostic mode cannot be entered while the icemaker is in its ice-making cycle. To see if this is the case simply
press the emitter flap door and look at the status LED as it will flash on/off at intervals of one second, if this is the
case then diagnostics will not work.
Error Code Flashes
Three flashes, delay of two seconds then repeated
Icemaker fault – replace icemaker
Four flashes, two second delay then repeated
Infrared receiver relay is fault – replace IR receiver PCB
Two flashes, two second delay then repeated
Infrared receiver optics faulty – replace the IR receiver PCB
Five second solid
No faults present on system
NOTE: Only the first fault will be displayed if there are multiple failures you must repair the first fault before any
further failures are shown.

Zanussi, Electrolux & Tricity Bendix Dishwashers
From UK Whitegoods by Chris Chantrell
There are two common types of fill systems used by the Electrolux group of dishwashers and
both are discussed frequently on UK Whitegoods.
Both systems utilise displacement of air to operate pressure switches, which will cut off the
electrical supply to the water valve and thus the supply of water into the machine. They each
also have a flood protection system to prevent overfilling should the primary control system
become inoperative. This works by diverting air into a pressure cut-off on the water inlet valve,
which will remain electrically activated.
The Blue Tubes
This is the early system and may be easily identified by looking at the large filter in the
appliance. If it has a large dome in the moulding at the 3 o’clock position, you have the early
system. This is a very simple set-up and, barring a mechanical failure of the pressure switch
itself, is always repairable.
Remove bottom basket, rotor and large filter. This will reveal a translucent dome at the 3
o’clock position, retained by a single screw on the top. When undone, the dome can be
removed and will reveal the two blue tubes, and a cranked spout. Lift all three out and clean
thoroughly, jetting water through the tubes until clear. 75% of the time, this will clear the
problem. However, if on re-assembly the machine will fill once and then not refill, you will need
to clean out the transfer hose. This is a horseshoe shaped hose mounted in a bracket on the
underside of the machine. With the power off and the machine tipped back, remove the hose
and flush out. Don’t forget to clean out the spigots which the hose mounts onto.
The IWMS System
This is the later set-up and the one which causes all the headaches. In theory, the system is
very simple. The IWMS is a large plastic moulding housed under the left hand side of the
dishwasher. It comprises a series of chambers which are filled and emptied as the programme
requires, and a “main channel” which allows the water to run down into the machine for
circulation in the wash programmes. The water passes from the IWMS through two tubes –
ones is a rigid plastic moulded pipe, the other a flexible plastic one. Both are prone to choking
with food detritus, and need to be cleaned out from time to time. They may be identified as
passing across the front underside of the tub and curving round to the sump area. If flushing
these tubes out does not restore correct fill function, the IWMS will be at fault. Viewed from
the side of the machine, the lowest parts of the moulding frequently appear to be black in
colour – this is food detritus which will have built up over time. Theoretically the moulding can
be removed and an attempt made at cleaning it out; however because of the myriad of narrow
channels contained within, this rarely works. The only practical solution is a replacement
IWMS and in future ensuring that crockery has had any heavy deposits thoroughly rinsed off
before insertion into the dishwasher. There is no circulation through the IWMS area, and the
water enters the machine under gravity, so over time sedimentation can and will occur.
