Kitchenaid Washer Error Codes

Kitchenaid Washer Error Code F14

Error code F14 on your KitchenAid washer signifies an issue related to the EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory). The EEPROM is a crucial component that stores critical data and settings for the appliance. When an EEPROM error occurs, it indicates a disruption or corruption in this stored information.

  1. Power Glitch: A sudden power surge or glitch may cause data corruption in the EEPROM.
  2. CCU Malfunction: Central Control Unit (CCU) failure can lead to EEPROM errors.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Disconnect Power: Unplug the washer and disconnect the power supply to ensure safety during troubleshooting.
  2. Wait and Reconnect: Allow the washer to remain unplugged for a few minutes to reset the control board. Reconnect the power and plug the unit back in.
  3. Run Diagnostic Test: Initiate a diagnostic test or run any cycle to check if the error persists. The diagnostic test helps assess the functionality of the Central Control Unit.
  4. Verify CCU Operation: Ensure the Central Control Unit (CCU) is operating correctly. If you’re not comfortable running a diagnostic test, seek professional assistance for a thorough evaluation.
  5. Replace Defective Components: If the error persists after the above steps, it may indicate a defective EEPROM or CCU. Replacement of the faulty component is recommended.

Note: A power glitch is mentioned as a potential cause for this error. To minimize the risk of EEPROM errors, consider using surge protectors or uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to safeguard your washer from sudden power fluctuations.
