Customer: replied 8 years ago.
FAV6800 1069 09900EE is the model number and serial no of our machine
Expert:  Chas replied 8 years ago.



ERROR CODE "dc" is displayed due to the following:

During the spin cycle an unbalanced load prevented the washer from spinning.

This is normally a problem with the clutch / pulley on the tub slipping and the machine not being able to spin at all, it has been my experience that replacing this part will allivate the proble 95% of the time,


They have upgraded this pulley to make it more ROBUST and less prone to failure.


I have included a link for the information on the new part needed.
