Self-recovery work

Error F8 appears when the drum rotation speed during the spin cycle is lower than usual. The peculiarity of this error is that it is not displayed in the wash mode. To identify deviations in the speed of rotation of the drum, you need to run a verification test. If a discrepancy with the norm is detected by more than 100 rpm, after the test is completed, the code F8 will be displayed on the display.

Most often, the machine starts to rotate the drum more slowly due to problems with the motor. Jamming of the drum itself may also occur because a foreign body has got into it. In some cases, the problem lies in a faulty electronic control module.
