Whirlpool (UK) AWM 8163 Washing machine
Posted 02 May 2005 - 05:58 AM
I had a problem with the machine not draining. Eventually traced this to a coin trapped in the outlet of the pump, after an hour long fight with the machine I managed to retrieve the coin. I don't know if I disturbed or damaged something during the battle to get the coin out. Because now the machine drains fine. But when the drum is due to start I hear 2 loud clicks from the motor and the drum jerks a couple of times. Then the digital display starts to flash displaying the number 7 and The letter F, presumably fault 7. Any Ideas ?

Also, photos of the guts of your washer would help us to visuallize the problem. You can post them here using the attachment feature.

"Electrical module fault
The “Spin Speed” indicator and the “Start
Delay” option are flashing and an audible tone
sounds. The display shows “F4” to “F16”.
• Switch off the appliance. Select a programme
and press the “Start/Pause” button once
The programme will continue.
• If the fault re-occurs, contact After Sales
Service (see “After-Sales Service”).
This is the error my machine displays. I've took the back of to have a closer look. After disconnecting the drive belt and watching the motor it seems to me that whatever system controls the speed of the motor in not functioning. When the motor kicks in it seems to go at full speed immediately then a fraction of a second later the machine trips out displaying the above error. Do you think the electrical control module is faulty or could it be the motor itself ?

If the fault code re-appears, then you'll probably need to replace the motor speed control board.
