Cabrio Washer Error F5E3


The Cabrio Washer F5E3 error code means the lid lock will not unlock or the lock assembly has failed.

  1. This error can happen if there is anything heavy on the washer lid that is putting  the lid lock bolt in a bind not allowing it to release.
  2. Check the lock for interference and make sure nothing is blocking the lock bolt from retracting, sometimes soap scum build up can cover the lock bolt opening and prevent it from being able to retract.
  3. If the lock assembly looks ok and there is no interference then most times the lock assembly will need to be replaced. In some cases it can be the main board at fault, this is not very common but can happen.
  4. There are some diagnostic steps you can take with an ohm/volt meter to determine 100% what the cause of the failure is. If you need help with these steps let us know.

In most cases, this error code is caused by a failed lid lock assembly. The lock assembly can be ordered from the link below:
