Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.


That is a ERROR CODE F01
The pump driver fails to activate/One of the main relays is not working properly/
A communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM
onboard the CCU occurred.

Check for loose power outlet. A loose power plug in the wall can create
line noise and issues.
- Check if washer is on a dedicated circuit. Other devices on same circuit
can create line noise and cause this issue.
- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Make sure that wire harness connections from the CCU are not broken or with wires
detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.
- Make sure all green wires (ground harness system) are not broken or detached.
- Make sure the two ground switches are pressed correctly by the toe and rear panels.
- Make sure all connectors are fully seated.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Check for power going to Central Control Unit (CCU) by listening for a click in the
CCU when unit is plugged in washer or when reconnecting power.

- Verify unit operation by performing the Diagnostic Test. See page 5.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect power
and wait for 15 seconds.

Normally you need to replace the CCU to correct that issue.
