Despite the excellent quality of a washer and your best efforts to maintain it in good condition, a washing machine can still break down. When this happens, you need to troubleshoot and fix the issue. Troubleshooting Hisense washer is easy. The washing machine does the heavy work of identifying system failure, which it then displays on its display screen as an error code for the user or washer repair technician to read. The error code is in a programming language that needs to be decoded. Fortunately, this guide will list the Hisense washer error code and what it means. This information should help you troubleshoot and fix the issue within a short time.
Hisense Washer Error Codes
Explained below are Hisense washing machine (View on Amazon) error codes, a possible cause for the error, and how you can fix the problem and continue doing your laundry. Hisense washer runs its diagnostic feature and displays error codes, if any, on the display screen.
If there’s no luck with your washing machine and the errors don’t seem to go, then you’ll either need to get your washing machine repaired or replaced. A portable washing machine (view on Amazon) will do a similar job to your Hisense washing machine whilst you’re getting it repaired or finding a proper replacement.
F01 Error Code – Water Supply Fault
The F01 and FO2 fault code on your Hisense washer indicate that your washing machine has a broken water supply. Check your water inlet and ensure it is running as it should. Check the water pressure to ensure it is pushing water efficiently.
If your washer isn’t not filling due to a supply faulty, you should make sure the faucet at the water-supply end of the hose is turned on. There could be crimps or kinks in your hose so you need to inspect it and make sure that there isn’t. If the filtering screen at the end of the water supply is dirty, then you need to clean it. To fix the f01 error on your Hisense washing machine, you need to unthread the hoses and take out the small filtering screen at the water-supply end of the hose. Once done, check the screen and make sure it’s not dirty nor does it have any wear. If all looks good, thread the hoses back onto the water supply and remove the other end of the hoses from the back of the washer. Place the ends of the hose in a bucket or in the washer and turn the faucets on to check the water pressure.
F03 Error Code – Draining Fault
Fault code F03 pops up on your washer display screen if there is a problem with your washer’s drain hose. It also comes up when there is a problem with your pump. Inspect the draining and pump of your washing machine and clear debris that might be clogging the waterways. Ensure water draining from your washer flows freely out of the washing machine. To do this, you need to remove the drain hose from the back of the washer. Run a moderate to high-pressure water stream through it and if it is clogged, this should force the clog out and allow water to stream out freely.
There are a few things that you need to make sure of when you receive the F03 error. These have all been detailed by Hisense and they’ll help fix the draining fault when you receive the F03 error.
- The appliance has not emptied. Check the drainpipe is not knotted or frozen. Once you’ve checked it, select and start the drain program or push the reset button for 3 seconds, then restart the desired program.
- Check that the filter in the drain pump is not blocked.
Check that the drain pipe spigot on the sink is open and the end cap has been removed.Once you’ve done this, select and start the drain program or push the reset button for 3 seconds, then restart the desired program.
For the drain hose to drain as efficiently as possible, the drain hose needs to be elevated to a height of between 65cm and 100cm. This’ll ensure that the water drains efficiently and it stops water from being let back into the appliance.
- Check that the drain pipe isn’t blocked or connected to waste-water pipework. You should also check to see if the pip is trapped under any appliance.
F05 or F07 Error Code – Electrical Module Fault/Board/Wiring
These fault codes are displayed when there is an issue with your washer’s wiring. Inspect all wiring in your washing machine to find faults in the connection. Tighten loose wires and unwind wire harnesses. This should correct the problem. Call a qualified technician or electrician to help you if you do not feel comfortable working with electric wires.
F08 and F12 Error
The f08 error shows up when there’s a heater circuit error. If the main control has detected a failure with the heater circuit, you won’t be able to start the cycle before the heater circuit error has gone. The heater circuit is used to increase the temperature of water that will be used for the washing purpose. It’s checked before the cycle starts and after the spinning steps.
Another way to tell if the heater circuit is bad without receiving any error codes is if the machine won’t finish a wash cycle – and this is usually going to result in the machine either continuing to wash or displaying the F08 and F12 fault code as it waits for the water to get up to temperature.
F13 Error Code – Door Lock Fault
This fault code indicates a problem with the door of your washing machine. In most cases, it means a door that cannot close completely. Check your door and find out the reason why it will not close. In addition to this, inspect the door switch and ensure that it is working as it should.
The EEPROM is the data chip that holds all the program information for your washing machine, if yours is faulty, you’ll see the f14 error. If there’s a problem with the EEPROM, then the central control unit onboard the CCU can’t read the data coming from it.
F17 indicates that no water coming into the condensing chamber whilst it’s in the drying cycle. In your washing machine, the hot air is moved to a condensing chamber where it is condensed into water, it is then collected and stored in a container under the machine. If no hot air is coming into the condensing chamber and condensing into the water, then there’s a problem with the chamber as the air can’t get through. To fix the condensing chamber yourself, unplug the appliance. Take the top off. Check to see if the condensing chamber below the heating chamber is blocked.
F22 Error Code – NA
This error code is displayed when there is a general issue with the washing machine. To fix it, you will have to turn off the washer by unplugging it from its power source and wait for a few minutes for the washing machine to reset before you plug it back into the power source.
F24 Error Code – Water Level Reaches Overflow Level
Hisense washing machine has been designed to accommodate water to a specific level. However, water flowing into the washer fills beyond this point; it might overflow. An overflow can only happen because of a faulty sensor or a broken water inlet valve. Therefore, when fault code F24 displays on your washer’s display screen, you need to inspect both the inlet valve and the sensor for faults. Fix the errors to restore your machine to its normal functioning state.
The F26 error is a sign that the pump driver is failing. If the triac of the pump is faulty and this is detected by the CCU during the washing cycle, then you’ll see the f26 error. If it’s defective, then it could be down to the failure of the pressure switch. You need to check the resistance of the pressure switch using a multimeter (view on Amazon). If the resistance is ok, then start the service test to check CCU. İf the failure occurs replace the CCU.
F27 Error Code
The f27 error is triggered when the reversing relay is failing. If the CCU detects that the relay can only travel in one direction, then the error code will display. The motor has to be able to rotate in both directions or it’ll send a signal to the CCU which will cause the F27 error to show up. You need to check the CCU and the motor to make sure that they’re both functioning.
If the CCU can’t turn on the tapped field of the motor, you’ll get the F28 error to show that there’s a problem. To make sure that there isn’t a problem with the motor, check that it’s built in properly, check the resistance of the field of the motor, check the harness between the motor and the CCU. If all looks good, it looks like there’s a problem with the CCU since it’s receiving an incorrect single from the motor and displaying the F28 error.
UNB Error Code – Unbalance Load In Washer
This error code pops up when the load within your washer is not evenly spread within the appliance. Readjust the load in the washing machine to get a balanced load before you proceed with the washing process. Do this by switching off the washer and rearranging the clothes within the washer. Once everything is placed in order, choose the spin program and start. The appliance should commence the washing process. Observe it carefully to see if the error has been fixed. If it is still faulty, unplug the washing machine from the socket and call a washing machine specialist.
The FH error means that there’s a water supply fault or that the water tap is closed. The first thing to do when you receive this error is to check that your water supply is turned on. If the supply is turned on, then check the inlet hose carefully to ensure that there are no kinks which could be restricting or preventing the water supply from reaching your machine.
How To Fix Hisense Washing Machine Error Codes
Hisense washer is fitted with various safety precautionary measures that make it easy for you to detect faults early. Most of these faults are minor and can be solved in a few simple steps.
1. Washer Will Not Start and No Indicator Lamp is On
Inspect the socket to see if the main plug is fixed correctly, and the power switch is turned on. It would help if you also inspected the wall socket for faults to ensure that it is functioning correctly. Test it using a table lamp or any other similar electric appliance.
2. Washer Will Not Start
Inspect the washer’s door to ensure it is locked tightly. You also need to check the start/pause button to ensure it is pressed and finally ensure the water tap is open. Press the start/pause button to begin the washing process.
3. Appliance Stops During the Program
Check if the rinse hold signal lamp lights up. Press the start/pause button to end this option. You can also end it by selecting and starting the drain program of the washer. Check if another program has been chosen before the start/pause button is pressed. Finally, check if the door of the washing machine is open, and the start/pause button has not been pressed. Shut the washer’s door and press the start/pause button one more time.
4. Machine Vibrating During Spin Cycle
Check if the washing machine is standing on level ground. It should be standing on all its four feet. Also, inspect if transport bolts have been removed. The transport bolts have to be removed before you start using the washer. Ensure that your load is balanced and enough for your washer. Do not put large loads, which will cause the washer’s drum to go out of balance. Always be careful when you are loading the Hisense washing machine.
5. Poor Results from Final Spin
Typically, washers have an imbalanced detection and correction mechanism in place. If you load heavy items, this mechanism may lower the spin speed or interrupt the spin completely if it picks up an imbalance even after more than one spin. To protect the washer, you need to:
- Remove some load and repeat the spin cycle if the laundry is very wet at the end of the spin cycle.
- Use the right amount of detergent to avoid the formation of excessive foam that may inhibit spinning.
- Inspect the spin speed and ensure it is not set at 0.
If your washer has a time display, the initially displayed program time is shortened or extended by some minutes or hours. This is a washer’s ability to adapt to different factors that may affect the wash program period. Some of these factors include load imbalance, the formation of excess foam, and extended heating period because of low inlet water temperature.
Hisense washing machine error code is a quick way to learn about the fault within your washer. It is the manufacturer’s way of ensuring you get the best service when using the washer. The code is displayed on the washing machine’s display screen and can be understood using this guide. You need to follow a few simple steps when fixing these errors and get back to your laundry task. If, despite your best efforts to apply these simple fixes, your washing machine still won’t perform at its optimum condition, call an appliance specialist to fix it.
