Are you able to remove the rear panel?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Not really as we have the tumble dryer on top and its heavy

No problem there may be another way. Is the door still locked shut?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
the door is locked
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
There should not be a lot of water inside as i was just draining it as the clothes were still a bit wet from the wash

If you look at where the filter is located is there a little plastic lever you are able to pull. Its normally red, black or green

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
its red, shall I pull it?

Brilliant. Yes pull it and it will release the door for you and I'll be able to get the model to help you better

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I have pulled it, and the door is unlocked now, but the F23 is still flashing

Yeh unfortunately that's not your fix but can you give me the model now please

Ok, thanks

We need to remove the lower kick panel. there's screws by the filter that need to come out to do this. Are you able to remove that now?

There was no water in the washing maschine when Ibopened the door

?

Its the piece labelled 0208 - 0209 that needs to come off

This is the part where the filter is. So I need to unscrew this one screw on the right. Then what do i do?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
We could remove one screw, but the whole part did not come off

Yes that's right. Once unscrewed that panel will be able to be removed normally push to the right and it will clip off

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question

Sorry didn't see your reply. If there is just the one screw by the filter the panel will definitely come off

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Once its opened, what shall I do?

Make sure that the power is off. I'm expecting that you will find water in the base behind that panel which you'll need to mop up. When you plug back in the F23 should be gone. If not there is a reset procedure I'll take you through.

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Unfortunately we are not able to take that panel out yet. Any further tips

It will come off I promise. The only other way is to get to the rear and take the back off

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ok, its opened and we found water at the bottom, so we are cleaning it up
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
But why is there water there, do we need to urgently do something about that?

Fantastic! That is the cause of your F23 fault code. Before you put on a full wash load try an empty as if there is an internal leak you'll need to find what the cause is and repair that

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question

Check the inside of the door seal for any small tears and make sure the soap drawer and box is clean

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
we cleaned all the water and switched on the washing machine and tada .. the F23 error is gone. Excellent. Thank you so much. I checked the door seal and did not find any tears. I cleaned the area where the detergent goes. So should be ok. I will try the empty cycle run now.
