code nf means no fill. i dont think that is correct. please put the washer on the spin cycle and see if it will bring the code back up. let it ru till it shuts off or the code comes up and let me know what it says. should be dl, lr, or dc

Will not let me put on spin cycle

ok open the rear control panel by removing the four screws on the back top of the control panel. in here you will find the tech sheet which will walk you through the diaongnistic mode. here you can retrive all codes and test som parts. get this and get back to me asap.

Expert:  S.E.Thomas replied 6 years ago.
you can reach these with out moving it. look straight down the control panel. they are right over the edge.

I ran a quick wash cycle and did not come up again could it be related to the fact it was some thick blankets?


Expert:  S.E.Thomas replied 6 years ago.
yes for sure. they never want to spin in these machines and will take several tries to get them spun out.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
So do I need any further service repair....should I worry that the drain is stopping up? Have had machines for approximately 5 years?
Expert:  S.E.Thomas replied 6 years ago.
you should be just fine. i believe the reason the water was there was simply from the large item. if you run a regular load you should find it will work just fine. the code you had was most likely dc or dl. distribute clothes/load
