Hello from JA My name is Woody. I will be glad to assist you today. I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 33 Years, and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 50,000 phone and internet repairs under my belt.
The F-22 code is is telling you the washer senses a load of clothing in the washer during the clean cycle.
when it should be spinning what is the washer doing ?
yes, now i gave you an answere
the washer is not Spinning, he is normal going on, the clothes will be wet
we thougt, that something has to be cleant inside the washer, so we took
bleach in the washer, like the Manual says. Then i saw, that the basket
will spin in high Speed, then, after nearly 1 Minute, the basket run out, then the F-22 code come up. At the normal washing cycle no F-22 came up, the wash Prozess was going on (normal) only the basket was Spinning in a slow Motion. Excuse my bad english, i am from Germany
ok so it does spin just not getting to the high speed spin .
Have you tried running the unit with out anything in it on a normal cycle?
this machine is smart enough to know if the load is out of balance or not!
Yes, i have done it with only three hankies . It was normal running without fast Spinning. Only in the "clean washing Modus it was fast Spinning and after this the F-22 came up. my wife has yesterday washed some king size bedsheets, but the washer where not loaded to much, in this washing cycles the basket was not Spinning, so the Sheets where very wet
ok lets try a drain and spin cycle with NOTHING in the washer right now and see what it does ?
And the only code you have seen is the F22 code correct?
Yes, Woody, F-22 was the only code. I will let now the washer run with "drain and spin" cycle with nothing inside. The washer says, it will Need 18 minutes. The pump is working, so we will wait. now my wife said, the washer was very shortly Spinning (no more than 10 seconds, now 2 times, the basket is turning right and left always, like he is in washing Modus, now the basket is Spinning, but not very fast i think in the middle of full Speed.
oK thank you, XXXXX XXXXX to wait for 11 minutes now, the washer "says"
The clock for remaining time is 11 minutes, all the time, ist not runnung down. The basket will run 30 seconds to the right, then ist turning shortly to the right, then to the left, is stopping, the 30 sec to the left. I think, the Basket is running with, may be, 200 to 300 rpm (i think so)
now the remaining time was 8 minutes, the washer stopped, the red bulb for "draining/unlocking" was blinkingThen the "End" was shown
ok so the unit has to have a faulty motor control board . which means it is telling the main control the unit is even out of balance with nothing in it
The only way to fix it is to replace the motor control

Thank you Woody, i am hopeful,that it is the control board, when not, what i have to do?
