Kenmore made by LG washing machine mod# 796. 40512900.Customer is reporting DE and Pf codes. I know the DE is door error and PF is power failure. Just wondering why it is happening mid cycle (Possible loose wire or board?). She says after the errors the machine will not turn on until she unplugs the unit for a while and then plugs it back in then it will turn back on. I havent had one do this to me yet. Just now starting to see the LG washers in my town. Thanks in advance for the help.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

<<<Customer is reporting DE and Pf codes.>>>

 

*************

 

A rare set of errors (fortunately).

 

I've seen this problably twice in 10 years.

 

In each case---the MAIN BOARD was at fault (this also involved---contacting LG Tech Center for confimation---first).


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

After the display board freaking out and then not work. I found that they had an open neutral in their power plug.
