Dishwasher  Error codes Causes and Solution
PF
Causes
Power Failure
Solution
Select 'cancel' to clear code. If error persists, check electrical connections to dishwasher and electronic control (control board). Replace if defective.
C1
Causes
Partially Blocked Drain
Solution
This error will occur when dishwasher was unable to pump out water in less than 95 seconds. Check drain line for debris and blockage. If clear, check for a restricted drain valve in the pump.
C2
Causes
Drain Line Totally Blocked
Solution
This error will occur when dishwasher is unable to pump out water within the maximum time of 405 seconds. Check drain line and drain valve in pump for debris and blockage. Note: If a new garbage disposal has been installed, remove knock out plug for dishwasher drain.
C3
Causes
Will Not Drain
Solution
This occurs when dishwasher is not able to switch to the drain mode. 
C4
Causes
Water Over-Fill Fault
Solution
This error usually indicates bad water inlet valve. Check for high water pressure to unit.
C5
Causes
Low Water Fill
Solution
This error usually indicates bad water inlet valve. Check for low water pressure to unit.
C6
Causes
Water Temperature Too Low (After 20 Minute Extension)
Solution
Check heating element and thermostat for continuity.
C7
Causes
Temperature Sensor Bad
Solution
Replace temperature sensor (remove door to access panel, sensor should be located inside the door).
C8
Causes
Detergent Cup Blocked
Solution
Check for debris around detergent cup. Keep objects clear of cup when loading dishwasher.
Microwave Error codes Causes and Solution
F1
Causes
Oven Cavity Thermistor Open
Solution
Check oven thermistor for continuity and replace if zero or infinite ohms.
F2
Causes
Oven Cavity Thermistor Closed
Solution
Check oven thermistor for continuity and replace if zero or infinite ohms.
F3
Causes
Touch Pad Shorted
Solution
Replace touch pad (key panel).
F4 / F5
Causes
Humidity Sensor Open of Shorted
Solution
Replace humidity sensor.
F6
Causes
Shorted Temperature Probe
Solution
Replace temperature probe.
Cooking Range -Stove Error codes Causes and Solution
F0
Causes
Function Key Stuck
Solution
Replace touch pad or touch pad and control board if one assembly. Refer to F1 Test for more information.
F1
Causes
Function Key Stuck
Solution
Replace touch pad or touch pad and control board if one assembly. Refer to F1 Test for more information.
F2 (During Bake)
Causes
Oven Control Senses Oven Temperature above 615F-630F
Solution
If temperature has exceeded 615F-630F, check for welded contacts on bake and broil relays. If present, replace control board. If temperature has NOT exceeded 615F-630F, check sensor, sensor harness, and the sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. If found defective, replace sensor. Also check for any causes of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit.
F2 (During Clean)
Causes
Oven Control Senses Oven Temperature Above 915F-930F
Solution
If temperature has exceeded 915F-930F, check for welded contacts on the bake and broil relays. If present, replace control board. If temperature has NOT exceeded 915F-930F, check sensor, sensor harness, and the sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. If found defective, replace sensor. Also check for any causes of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit.
F3 / F4
Causes
Open or Shorted Oven Temperature Sensor (RTD)
Solution
Check sensor harness and connection between oven sensor and oven control. If wiring is ok, replace control board.
F5
Causes
Loss of Relay Drive Circuit
Solution
If error cannot be cancelled by selecting the 'cancel' function, the control board will need to be replaced.
F8
Causes
Shorted Meat Probe
Solution
This error indicates a problem with either the probe, receptacle, or probe circuit. Check the probe for pinched wires and make sure there is no condensation or contamination on receptacle.
F9
Causes
Door Lock Switch
Solution
Check door lock switches and wiring.
FC
Causes
Door Lock Circuit
Solution
Check wiring and test switches. Most common cause of this error is pinched wires between the control and the door lock switches on motorized lock circuits.
FD
Causes
Short Meat Probe
Solution
This error indicates a problem with either the probe, receptacle, or probe circuit. Check the probe for pinched wires and make sure there is no condensation or contamination on receptacle. If ok, replace probe.
FF
Causes
Loss of Door Motor Safety Switch
Solution
Replace control board.
FFF
Causes
EEPROM Checksum Error
Solution
Replace control board.
Washing Machine Error codes causes and solution
IE
Causes
Water Level Sensor Error
Solution
Press 'Power' button and check wiring harness, pressure sensor switch, and circuit board for defects. Replace faulty part.
7E
Causes
Water Supply Error
Solution
Press 'Power' button and check wiring harness, water valve, pressure sensor switch, and circuit board for defects. Replace faulty part.
E
Causes
Drain Pump Error
Solution
Press 'Power' button and check wiring harness, pump motor, and circuit board for defects. Replace faulty part.
dE
Causes
Lid Open Error
Solution
Close lid. If error persists, check wiring harness, lid switch, unbalance switch, and circuit board for defects. Replace faulty part.
UE
Causes
Unbalance Switch Error
Solution
Open lid and re-balance laundry manually. If error persists, check wiring harness, unbalance switch, and circuit board for defects. Replace faulty part.
OE
Causes
Water Overflow Error
Solution
Turn off water supply to washer and disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wiring harness, water inlet water valve, pressure sensor switch, and circuit board for defects. Replace if faulty.
