I AM ***** *****, MY WASHER WFW8410SW01 GAVE AN ERROR CODE…

Customer Question
HELLO, I AM *****...

HELLO, I AM ***** *****, MY WASHER WFW8410SW01 GAVE AN ERROR CODE OF F5. THE MACHINE WOULD START A WASH CYCLE NORMALLY HOWEVER WHEN ITS TIME TO WASH (THE SIGNAL CLICK COULD BE HEARD) THE BARREL DOES A GENTLE ROCK & STOPS........... GENTLE ROCKS AGAIN & STOPS , EJECTS THE WATER AND THE CYCLE IS OVER WELL SHORT OF THE STIPULATED TIME FOR THE CYCLE. I FOLLOWED ALL THE SUGGESTIONS RECOMMENDED FOR THIS ERROR CODE (F5) BUT THE MACHINE CONTINUES TO OPERATE THE SAME WAY WITH NO ERROR CODE BEING DISPLAYED NOW.......

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I JUST TYPED ALL THE ISSUES ABOUT THIS MACHINE. THE MACHINE IS SEVEN YEARS OLD.

That washer model has an electronic temperature sensor, to better determine and control the temperature of the wash and rinse water. The sensor used is called a thermistor which has the ability to change in resistance as it changes in temperature. If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, the 'F/05' error code will be displayed. Replace the temp sensor and the washer will be fixed.

and here is the gasket for the sensor if you want to replace it as well, I recommend to change it.
