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

So error F22 means that the washer thinks there is a load inside the washer when you are trying to run a clean cycle. If you are trying to run a clean cycle, you can't have clothes inside the washer. The clean cycle is only to clean out the tub and washer itself.

Now if this error is coming up when you're trying to run a normal cycle, that is a problem. Try to unplug the washer for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If that doesn't work, your main control board is just corrupted and would need to be replaced.

Ok well then the issue is not likely worth fixing. The washer bases the load on the amount of strain the motor is getting. If the bearing starts to drag it will cause more friction which causes it to think there is a load inside when there is not. The entire rear outer tub would need to be replaced to resolve that issue and that's about a $600 repair so it's probably just best not to use the clean cycle anymore.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
