Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

F01 is a very straight forward error on washers and it means that your main relay control board has failed an needs to be replaced. If you have a model number I can give you a link to the board you'd need to order and replace. However the model number is ***** on a sticker inside the door which is locked so you'll need to manually unlock the door. To unlock the door, unplug the washer and remove the screws coming in from the back of the top panel. The top panel will then pull straight back, up, and off. Then you can reach down to the door latch and there is a plastic tab hanging form the bottom of the latch which you can pull down to manually unlock the door.
