Baumatic Fault Codes

Baumatic washing machine fault codes and spare parts

This set of fault codes is for the Baumatic Megadigital range of washing machines with a digital display. Theses fault codes will not relate to other Baumatic washing machine models as they will often have been produced by different manufacturers, please check carefully before using these fault codes.

These washing machiens are made for Baumatic by Gorenje so the error codes below may well be replicated on certian models from Gorenje and others.

Before you start any investigation of the fault or even remove the lid of your Baumatic washing machine please read and fully understand this article in full and pay particular attention to the safety and information notices at the bottom of this page as they contain extremely important information!

Please remember to support our site by buying Baumatic washing machine spares from our spare part store and, if you decide that you really need an engineer please support the local repairers that help make this site possible, you can search for a repair engineer using the engineer search.

  Baumatic Megadigital Fault Codes

These fault codes are written for washing machine repairers and not for the general public by Baumatic and they assume a certain level of competence on the part of the user in diagnostic routines. We have added some notes to try to assist you in determining the nature of the fault you have but, you will still need to investigate each failure on its own merits. For more help and advice on fault finding on a washing machine please refer to our washing machine fault finding guide from this link before you begin which will help you diagnose the problem with your Baumatic washing machine.

  Baumatic Washing Machine Spare Parts

We have purposely not listed any Baumatic washing machine spares in this article.

Please, don't guess or assume as spares can be altered on a production run with the same model number having several different alternative components used.

F1

Connection to temperature sensor either open or short circuit

The fault code is displayed, if the connection to the temperature sensor is open or if there is a short circuit between the two terminals of the sensor.

The wash program will be cancelled without heating.

The failure will be displayed at the end of the wash program.

  • Check wiring to thermistor and connections on PCB
  • Check thermistor

F2

Water level not reached

This faut code is displayed, if within an filling or heating step the water level is below level 1 for 4 minutes.

If the filling step is shorter than 4 minutes, the code will not be set.

If the failure occured the first time within a washing program, the current step will be started again. If the the failure occured the second time, the washing program is stopped, and the fault code will be displayed.

To continue the washing program, the owner has to press the Start button.

If the failure occured the third time, the washing program is stopped, the failure will be displayed, and it is not possible to start the washing machine again.

  • Check water supply
  • Check for a leak in the machine
  • Check water valve
  • Check wiring
  • Check connections to water valve and PCB

F31

Motor tacho detected open or short circuit

A washing program is active and the motor control unit gets no signal from the tacho generator. The washing machine is stopped immediately and the failure is displayed.

  • Check motor tacho wiring
  • Check motor connection block
  • Check PCB connections
  • Replace motor

F32

Motor triac or IGBT short circuit

The fault code is displayed, if the washing program is active and the motor is working without control of triac or IGBT. The washing machine is stopped immediately and the failure is displayed.

  • Check motor tacho wiring
  • Check motor connection block
  • Check PCB connections
  • Replace PCB

F4

Water temperature not reached

Error code displayed if after a heating step the temperature is more than 15°C lower than the rated or set temperature. The washing program will be ended normally. The error code is displayed at the end of the washing program.

  • Check heater connections
  • Check PCB connections
  • Check wash heater element for continuity
  • Check thermostats or thermistors

F41

Water overheat error

Error code displayed if the washing program is active and the water temperature is 7°C higher than the maximum rated temperature of the washing program selected. The washing machine will be stopped immediately and the fault code will be displayed.

  • Check wiring to thermostat or thermistor
  • Check wash thermostat  or thermistor
  • Check heater relay on PCB

F43

Water heating error

Fault code displayed if the temperature gradient within a heating step is higher than about 9°C in a minute.

In a time of one minute, the temperature is measured and the corresponding gradient related to the last measurement is calculated.

If the failure happens, the washing machine is stopped immediately and the failure will displayed.

Ordinarily this would be caused by the washing machine attempting to heat with no water in it.

  • Check pressure sensor wiring and connections
  • Check PCB connections for pressure sensor

F5

Failure to drain water

If after a drain section of the wash program the water level did not fall below level one then this fault code will be displayed.

If the failure to empty occured the first time within a program, the drain step will started again.

If the failure occurs a second time, the washing machine is stopped and the fault code is displayed.

To continue the wash program, the user has to press the Start button.

If the failure occurs for a third time, the wash program is stopped and the failure is displayed. At this point is not possible to start the washing program again until the problem is rectified.

  • Check drain filter for blockage
  • Check drain pump for blockage
  • Check drain pump wiring
  • Check drian pump for continuity
  • Check drain pump connections on PCB

F61

Motor field relay not switched

This error code is displayed at the end of the spinning cycle or the test program if the spin is more than 100rpm lower than the rated speed. The error code is displayed after the end of the testing program.

  • Check the motor connections
  • Check tacho coil and magnet for damage
  • Check PCB

F63

Communications error

No communication with the chopper unit for 10 transmissions. The washing machine is stopped immediately and the failure is displayed.

  • Check wiring between PCBs
  • Replace faulty PCB

  More Baumatic Washing Machine Help

Should you need more help and guidance please use the links from this article as most of them will help you to understand your Baumatic washing machine a lot better and probably very much help you in diagnosing the fault you have. Of course there are many other articles on the site that will also help you do this.

In addition you can post in our help and advice forums after registering but please do pay heed to the information below before doing so and read the guides, they are there to help you.

You must understand certain things before you begin or attempt any repairs on your own and we want to make these points very, very clear to anyone that decides to investigate one of these or any other washing machines:

  • We are not responsible for your safety, you are and by using this guide you accept that and accept that any damage that you may cause and work undertaken is entirely at your own risk.
  • We will advise the common causes of the fault codes but we cannot guarantee that any parts or work recommended will resolve the issue. It is entirely your responsibility to diagnose your particular problem and resolve it.
  • We are not responsible for you buying spares that do not resolve the problem, this is down to your own diagnosis not ours.
  • No warranty is inferred, implied or given.

You also have to note that fault or error codes are not a "magic bullet", they will not tell you what the problem is, they will only offer you an indication of where the problem lies and they are no substitute for good old fashioned diagnostic skills. You can find out more about what washing machine fault codes actually tell you in this article. So please be well aware that, even with this new found knowledge you will still have to actually be capable of investigating and diagnosing the problem and this means adhering to basic appliance safety for working on them.

 

Also manufacturers can and do change fault codes without notice and we cannot guarantee that these error codes will apply to your particular model as all codes apply to a wide range of appliances and not normally any one specific model. To determine if these fault codes do apply to your particular Baumatic washing machine model please post a request to confirm this in the washing machine forum.
