Modern washing machines are not only ready to save us from unpleasant and hard physical work. They are also able to carry out self-diagnostics and to signal about any malfunctions - true, in their machine language. Although in most cases it is impossible to do without the help of an experienced master who is able to provide professional help to an intelligent mechanism, you can help yourself in certain situations with your washing machine (hereinafter referred to as CM) if you understand what it is asking for. The error code can be issued by the smart technician via the LCD display (if there is one) or through flashing indicators. Below are the error codes of the most popular brands (Atlant, Gorenje, ASKO, Samsung, Indesit, Ariston, Hansa, Candy, Kaiser, LG, Electrolux, Zanussi).

E 03 - Drain water took more than 1.5 minutes. In this case, the washing continues, the SM automatically reduces the spin speed to 400 rpm and gives an error code at the end of the program.
E 04 - Problems with filling water: when problems are detected (the level sensor detects "Tank overflow"), the system stops washing, issues an error code and starts the drain pump. If the pressure switch gives an "Empty tank" signal, the drain pump automatically shuts off, otherwise the pump continues to work.

E 07 - The system has detected a leakage of water into the CM tray (the Aqva Stop mechanism is triggered). The wash stops and the drain pump turns on, which works until the “Empty Tank” signal is received.
E 08 - CM warns that the parameters of the power supply network do not correspond to the norm (the manufacturer recommends a voltage of 190-253 V with a frequency of 50-60 Hz)
E 11 - Malfunction in the hatch locking system, washing is interrupted
E 21 - Problems occurred in the drive system (lack of signals from the tachogenerator). Washing is interrupted

Error codes washing machines GORENJE
F1 - CM is trying to tell you that there is an open or short circuit in the temperature sensor circuit.
F2 - This code notifies that the required amount of water has not entered the tank during the time set by the manufacturer (check the condition of the hose and the filter on the water supply)
F31 - Notification that the electronic controller is not receiving signals (problems with the tachogenerator)
F32 - Problems in the drive motor control system
F4 - (temperature mode)
This code notifies that during the time set by the manufacturer the temperature of the water in the working tank has not warmed to the specified level
F41 - In this case, the actual temperature of the water in the tank has risen above the permissible value.
F43 - CM reports that the rate of increase in water temperature is not correct (higher than the allowable value)
F5 - Problems with discharge: in this case, the CM cannot ensure the discharge of water, or for the allotted period of time the mechanism could not reach the “Empty Tank” position
F61 - SM could not provide the specified speed of rotation of the drum in the "Spin" mode
F63 - There were problems with control: the electronic controller does not receive signals from the electronic mechanism of the drive motor
Error codes washing machines Atlant
"door" - Everything is simple here: problems with the door - you could not close it tight enough, so the machine does not want to be washed. But this inscription may indicate a malfunction of the locking electric lock, and in the most difficult cases, problems with the electronic module.
F2 - By issuing such a code, the machine reports that there are problems with the temperature sensor (the “innocuous” version), with heating heating elements or with the control module.
F4 - Washing machine does not drain. Make sure that the drain hose is properly connected, check that the drain pump filter is not clogged, and the condition of the pump itself: the impeller should rotate completely freely.
F5 - This inscription can be highlighted while simultaneously drawing and draining water. In this case, check the condition of the drain hose (by analogy with the situation described above) and make sure that the water supply is adequate. Имеется в виду достаточное давление - причина может крыться в фильтре подачи (убедитесь, что он не забился).
F6, F9, F12 - Исправить поломку сможет только мастер: речь идёт о проблемах электродвигателя или электронного управления
F8 - В баке СМ - повышенный уровень воды. Следует обратить внимание на датчик уровня и состояние электроклапана.
SEL - это сокращённое "селектор", т.е. модуль интерфейса Вашей СМ. Появление этой надписи означает, что возникли проблемы с переключателем программ (СМ также может просигнализировать об этом с помощью мигания индикаторов, как это обычно происходит в конце стирки).
F13 и F14 - Возникли неполадки с электронным модулем
