Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The f26 error code means the computer is not seeing the door open or close which means there is an issue with the door lock switch which is part of the door lock mechanism. First thing you will want to do is check the wiring from the door switch to the control board and make sure the connections are not loose and are plugged in good and tight. If that checks out then replace the door lock. You did not provide the model number of the washer so without that I can not give you the replacement part number, if you would like that please provide me with the model number of the washer, thanks.

In the meantime please:
