KitchenAid Washer Error Code F07 points to a Motor Control Unit (MCU) error, indicating a problem with the communication or operation of the MCU. The MCU plays a crucial role in controlling the motor functions of the washer, and when an issue arises, it can impact the overall performance of the appliance.

Wire Harness Connections: Loose or damaged wire harness connections between the drive motor and MCU. Issues with wire harness connections between MCU and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Unplug and Disconnect Power:

    • Turn off the washer and unplug it from the power source.
    • Check the wire harness connections between the drive motor and MCU, as well as between the MCU and CCU. Look for any visible damage or loose connections.
  2. Reconnect Power and Plug Unit In:

    • After inspecting the wire harness, reconnect the power and plug the unit back in.
    • Power on the washer and observe for any changes in the error code display.
  3. Check MCU Operations:

    • Verify the operations of the drive motor by running a diagnostic test.
    • Observe the drive motor for powered rotations during the test.
