It is worth noting that at the time of writing that Pansonic spares are very hard to get indeed and that engineers have limited
access to both spares and technical support. This may lead to difficulty in obtaining spare parts and also service other than
from Panasonic themselves.
It is also worth pointing out that Panasonic, on this range, use spare parts that have attached connectors on them. This
means that using pattern parts is not possible, you will only have the option of Panasonic spares with no alternative.

Panasonic Washing Machine Fault Codes

These fault codes are written for washing machine repairers and not for the general public by Panasonic 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.

serial number. If you are unsure about the suitability of any spare part please ask to ensure that you get the correct spares for

same model number having several different alternative components used.

More Panasonic Washing Machine Help, Advice And Guidance

Should you need more help and guidance please use the links from this article as most of them will help you to understand
your Panasonic 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 washing machine forum 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 responsib le for your safety, you are and b y 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 b ut we cannot guarantee that any parts or work recommended will
resolve the issue. It is entirely your responsib ility to diagnose your particular prob lem and resolve it.
We are not responsib le for you b uying spares that do not resolve the prob lem, this is down to your own diagnosis not ours.
No warranty is inferred, implied or given.

You also have to understand 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 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. As, if you don't and tell the engineers in the forums that you
hooked up components to a live feed, worked on a live appliance and so on they will be a whole heap less willing to help you
in our washing machine forum because they will assume that you are trying to commit suicide and are not safe working on
your machine.

Please do note that 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 Panasonic washing machine or washer dryer model please
post a request to confirm this in the forums.
