Washer stops error code F08 & E01

Customer Question

washer stops error code F08 & E01

F08 E01 means that your washer isn't filling up with water fast enough. Make sure you have good water pressure to the washer from both hot and cold water. To reset the error, just leave the washer plugged in for 30 minutes and the drain pump will keep running and it will exit at the end of that time and unlock the door so you can start a new cycle.

If you have good water pressure from both hot and cold then watch the washer before the error occurs. If it stops after just a few seconds or a minute or two, then you have a bad flow meter not sensing the water properly if the washer is actually filling so you need to replace the flow meter. If water really isn't filling very fast at all, then you need a new electronic water valve which is the part that your water supply hoses from your house connect to on the back of your washer.

On the other hand, if the washer tries to fill for 6 minutes and it's not getting the water level to the bottom of the door, replace your water valve assembly because the flow is just too slow.
