Midea MFL70 D1211S and EdgeStar CWD1510W

by Jaro

RANK #3:

edgestar-mideaIf you’ve never heard about the company named Midea, don’t worry, me neither. The reason I started to be interested in some more information was that I found they make a really quality washer dryer combo. At least this is what all the user comments I found say about this actual model: Midea MFL70 D1211S.

After a little bit more searching I found that it is actually a re-branded version of EdgeStar CWD1510W combo and the only real change is the logo on the front panel.  They even share the high satisfaction level of their customers. So here comes  a review that covers both of them at the same time. However, in the Image section you can find images for both models. The difference between the two models is:

  • EdgeStar products have a great U.S. based support.
  • The EdgeStar is available in the silver version.

(Quick overview of the main features and properties)

The video for the brand by EdgeStar, but the only difference from the Midea model is the logo you can see on the front panel.
Video #2:

(Nice explanation and tutorial on how to easily set up and program the unit for your current load)

Pros and Cons:
Positives:
  • Exceptional performance, especially the drying function is said to be better in comparison to other combos.
  • Energy efficiency.
  • Very quiet thanks to the high-quality polyurethane material the tube is made of.
  • Complete wash together with dry in less than 3 hours.
  • Option to set your favorite cycles in the memory and next time start with just a push of a button.
  • Heats the water for you – you can use just cold water and then tell the unit to heat the water up.
  • Fits a 24” deep closet thanks to it’s dimensions: 23 7/16” x 33 7/16” x 23 1/2″ (WxHxD). If the depth is one of your requirements, this unit is your best choice from my TOP10.
Negatives:
  • Beeping after the wash and dry is finished can be a little inconvenient for some users. Although for me it’s a good feature as I always forget about the clothes inside:).
  • Sometimes the door gets locked for a few minutes because it has a safety rule to wait until the machine is sufficiently cooled down after the use of the dry function.
Negatives common to all combos:
  • There is no exterior lint trap for the dryer. The lint tends to collect around the rubber seal and you have to empty that once a month depending on the frequency of use.
  • The clothes need to be free to tumble in order to dry completely. Fill only half of the drum if you’re going to use the dry function.
  • Noisy water pump that expels the water from the machine – although active only intermittently during the wash and rinse cycle.
  • Produces a bit of heat.

Reviews and Prices:
Here you can find and compare user comments and prices from different online stores. Just a small advice – if you find a lot of positive reviews and some negative ones, it usually means that the complaining people don’t use the machine properly, or received some defective piece. I also added a price for a silver style design – EdgeStar CWD1510S.
Model and Online Store Price Link
NEW version EdgeStar CWD1550W – white (Amazon) w/ FREE SHIPPING now only: $899 Purchase
NEW version EdgeStar CWD1550S – silver (Amazon) w/ FREE SHIPPING now only: $949 Purchase

Conclusion: As I already mentioned, these models are practically the same thing and the remake by the Midea company is just a business matter. However based on the advantages of the EdgeStar model I mentioned at the beginning, I would go with this one. BTW. if you ever hear about a combo called Dometic, RCA 2.0 RWD200 or SOLOROCK 24″ SRWD732, know that they’re just another rebranded version. The SOLOROCK rebrand or the LG washers are a good choice for people living in Canada as some of the other washers I review on my site are not available there.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that there is a new version – EdgeStar CWD1550W.

  • The Amazon link does not show this product.

    • Hi Michael, thanks for pointing that out. It looks like Amazon simply discontinued the product and put a simple redirect somewhere else.

  • Jeffrey J Nelson

    I could have sworn I left a comment…

  • bill

    wheres the lint tramp at? how do you clean it?

    • Hi Bill, it exhausts the lint through the drain line. The machine also has a coin trap on the front bottom right-hand corner. You should clean it from time to time as it collect excess lint and any other small objects which might end up in the drum.

  • Matt Dodd

    Jaro: Ive read that the heat sensor gets dusty or gets lint on it, which causes drying problems. Do you know how to clean?

    • Hi Matt,
      what you are referring to is the error code E3A, which means as you described, some accumulated dust or lint on the heat sensor caused some problems. The fix is mostly pretty easy: Just take the top of the machine off and clean the heat sensor which is on the top back of the machine.

  • Romy Gomberg

    Hi I have this washer dryer and I love it but it is hArd to program and my door is alwAys locked I have to run the spin cycle then be right their when it stops and keep the door ajar when I am not using help what am I not doing right I need tutorial on how to set the washer and the dryer I am just pushing what I hope is the right cyclet at thizs point and missing out on some of its great features help!!

    • Hi Romy, please have a look at the second video I’ve just added to this page for you. It nicely explains the programming of individual features/options of the unit..hope that helps

  • Debra Hanisits

    My dryer does not dry clothes at all. Is there something I can do to fix it. It was working when I just got it. Thanks!

    • Hi Debra, it’s hart to tell from here. Does it show any error? Try to have a look at the heat sensor as I describe in the comment below, clean the lint trapped inside, etc..

  • Maya

    Hi, my machine constantly stops in the middle of the cycling. I have to start it over,but same result. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong….

  • Nikki Niehues

    I just purchased this Midea version of the unit and it was missing the “transport hole plugs”. The company customer service was a joke and not helpful at all- said they don’t sell replacements of the hole plugs and I will have to return the entire unit and order a new one. Anyone have any ideas of something I can use in place of the hole plugs?? Or is it safe to use without the hole plugs? I have searched all over the internet and cant find replacements or what the purpose of the hole plugs are. (The plugs go into the back where the transport bolts get removed before you use it.)

    • Hi Nikki,
      yea that sucks, I’ve been searching as well but it’s hard to find them for that particular brand. Maybe try to have a look at this page http://www.appliancepartspros.com/frigidaire-transport-plug-kit-134591500-ap3879520.html and ask them if they have plugs for Midea or some universal plugs, etc.

      • Nikki Niehues

        Thanks!

        • manapp99

          Can’t see why you would need the hole plugs. The transport bolts are only to hold the drum in place during shipping. Once installed you don’t need the bolts or the plugs that cover the holes.

          • Nikki Niehues

            I wasn’t sure what the purpose of the plugs were. I have be running it without and its fine.

          • Yes Nikki, as manapp99 has mentioned, the plugs are there to simply cover the holes. The important things are the bolts, which you need for a safe transport of the machine.

  • Julia

    Does this machine need hook ups? Can I use just the kitchen sink inside my apartment? (Not allowed to install a washer/drier). Need something that can be easily connected/disconnected/moved. Thanks!

  • Derek

    Worst decision I ever made purchasing this machine. Absolute garbage. After five months on the first machine it stopped drying and would cut the dry cycle in half. After four repair techs couldn’t fix the problem they made me send it back, pay for a new one and then refunded me my money after a month.

    This one has lasted all of two days and now the door is permanently locked. Do everything to stay away from this disgusting company. On top of everything the customer service is a joke.

    I hope to turn on the news tomorrow and learn their entire building in Texas has been blown up

    • Hi Derek,
      I’m sorry for your bad experience. I’d like to assure you that it’s pretty rare because most people are really satisfied with this model. Which brand is it, Dometic, RCA, Midea or Edgestar? Which shop did you buy it at?

      • Derek

        Its an edgestar and I bought it from compact appliances I believe

        • Well, it looks like you really had a bad luck, most of my readers buy at Compact Appliances and say they’re happy with their purchase. The second unit you got I believe is OK, you just need to wait a little more to allow the unit to cool down completely. Or there might be a problem with the drainage or some installation problem that makes the machine believe it should stay locked..

          • Derek

            They have to order a new sensor because it is saying it is still hot when it is not. Unless the unit stays hot for 24 hrs strait lol

            On top of that I need a new door because your “wonderful company” is too stupid to realize that if you place a sticker on the door insuring the client removes the back bolts you probably don’t want to place that sticker directly on to glass in 130 Texas heat.

            Absolutely idiotic. I will make it a point that my company insures that the rest of the public knows of my experience.

  • Nicole Strong

    I keep getting an error 64. How do i fix this? I have the model MFL70-D11211S
    Plus it wont dry anymore. Ive had it for not even 3 months….

    • Hi Nicole,
      I’m sorry about your problem. It looks like you’ll have to call the service. The error 64 refers to the heater open circuit – Heating element or wiring is probably defective and the heater coils and connections for open circuits should be checked. You might need to replace heater and/or wiring..

  • Stephanie Berryman

    I can’t get it to unlock when I hold the start/pause button for 3 seconds. It will only unlock when the cycle is over. Also I received the E3A error and I have no idea how to open the top? Please help.

    • Hi Stephanie, thank you for your question. I’ve just added an answer to your query in my FAQ section. The question is #26: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#26 and you should find there solutions for both your problems.

  • Steve

    Why would my unit be soaking my floor, besides from the obvious, connections are tight…?

  • Greg Baz

    Do you know where I can find a service manual? A small piece of plastic seems to have caused a malfunction in the drain pump. It won’t dry clothes anymore. So I assume it can’t pump the condensed water out. The pump does not make the normal noise. Thank you.

    • Hi Greg, yes no problem, you can find a link to it in my FAQ section, question #26: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#26

      • Greg Baz

        Turns out that the cold water line I got had an auto shut off function if it detected a burst line. It had activated by mistake. I replaced the line with a normal line. With out cold water the unit will not dry.

        • Hi Greg, thanks very much for the update!

  • Farhan Abbasi

    Hi – after my first cycle, this is happening: The water fills up when it’s off, then leaks out of the door when full. I have to turn it on and it automatically flushes 70% of it. But then it fills up again overnight. Any idea how to troubleshoot this? Secondly, I can’t finish a cycle because during the wash it moves around and risks extending the pipes. Any idea on how to keep it in place?

    • Farhan Abbasi

      Just to be clear: It doesn’t leak from any of the pipes, or from under the washer. The washer simply fills itself up and then drips out from the door.

      • Hi Farhan, solution with machines moving around can be found and is discussed in my FAQ section, Q#1: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#1

        Regarding the leaking problem, I talk about it in the Q#23: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#23

        I have to say that it’s very weird that you washer fills up with water when off and leaks even though its new. I’m afraid you’ll have to call the service to have a look at it closer.

        • Farhan Abbasi

          Issue with the water was due to bad hot water pipe. Technician is replacing it.

          • Thank you very much Farhan for your shares and updates. I really appreciate that because your experiences will help other people to solve and understand the problems with their new w/d combos in a case of a similar behavior.

    • Farhan Abbasi

      UPDATE: The thing violently moves around and I have to push it back. I level it but that doesn’t help. If I let it go on its own it moves over 2 feet. What can I do?

      • Farhan Abbasi

        FIXED: My installer didn’t remove the bolts in the back. So the inside unit was unable to fully move around inside since it was bolted to the shell, causing the whole machine to dance.

        • yea it’s important to follow the manual instructing how to properly install the combo. Removing the transport bolts is an important task, and I’m surprised your installer forgot about it. After a longer use it could even damage the machine..

          • Tanielle

            I am having the same issue with mine. Guess it wasn’t installed correctly. How do I remove the bolts. I am trying to find the proper installation instructions online with no luck.

          • Hi Tanielle, I talk about it in my FAQ section, Q#6:http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#6. I’ve just added there a quick video on how to do that too. Hope that helps..

          • Tanielle

            Thanks for the help. My Midea isn’t drying. I am not getting an error code but it won’t dry. Not sure what to do?

          • Tanielle

            Just read above. Maybe I’m overloading it. I use to have an LG combo and it would dry no matter what. Took a lot longer but I liked being able to dry more items at once.

          • Yes Tanielle, based on your previous messages, I think you just need to let more space for the load to dry and maybe add some extra drying time. Midea probably also has a smaller capacity than your previous LG combo..

          • Tanielle

            Not sure how to add more drying time. You already have to press the dry option just to get it to dry with the cycle. After that once it stops I can set it to the dry options. I miss being able to put it in in the morning and have clean dry clothes when I get home. With needing to manually add the extra dry option it makes the washer/dryer combo less worthwhile.

          • Yea I understand what you mean. Well, I think you’ll just have to find out what cycle works best for you, maybe also add the extra rinse and definitely put less clothes into the drum. I think you’ll have to get used to more frequent washing with smaller loads and it should be ok.

  • luis

    Hi mr.Jaro I. Found your site interesting, I am having a display error. E64 and not heating and door does not unlock, it freeses I need the final answer of how to get it fixed and solve the error. Please unit #EdgeStar CWD1510W

    • Hi Luis thank you. I’ve actually already answered a similar question made by Nicole. I’ll copy my answer here: It looks like you’ll have to call the service. The error 64 refers to
      the heater open circuit – Heating element or wiring is probably
      defective and the heater coils and connections for open circuits should
      be checked. You might need to replace heater and/or wiring..
      hope that helps!

  • Greg Baz

    I got the RCA branded version of this unit. I paid only $450 for it and I love it. I do a small load of laundry every 2-3 days. I’m thinking I don’t even need as much clothing as I used to when I did laundry every 2 weeks and the laundromat.

  • Peg Wheeler

    I have a Midea 2.0 and love it. I just did a cleaning on after watching the Youtube video. One thing the video doesn’t include that is mentioned on the sticker on the inside of the door is doing a ‘basket clean’. I searched that process and found that some units have this as an option on the dial but the Midea 2.0 does not. Can I run it as described for the units that do have a cyle called Basket Clean by putting in a cup of bleach and running a regular wash cycle?

  • Robert Michaels

    Hi, is it possible to do a “no-dry” (i.e. speed wash or delicate) load completely in cold water? My fiancé uses the delicate cycle and is surprised at how hot the clothes are at the end of the wash. We’ve set the temperature to the lowest “double dash” setting and they’re still really hot. Also is the a stand-alone dry setting?

    • Hi Robert, yes there are also “only wash cycles” but the best of all is that you can actually modify the settings of any preset cycle. To better understand which cycle has which preset settings, please look at my FAQ section Q#26: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#26 for a link to a PDF document – Owner’s manual, where you can see also the respective symbols that belong to each action, etc. E.g. the ‘sun’ icon on the display indicates that the chosen cycle has a dry cycle applied to it..

  • Julie Crews

    Can anyone tell me what the error E3a means?

    • Hi Julie,

      the Error code E3a is overheating of the heat sensor not on main board. So don’t worry, it doesn’t mean the main board is defective. Your machine can be fixed by cleaning the heat sensor which is on the top back of the unit. Please have a look at my video in the FAQ section Q#26: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#26

  • Griffin Mason

    I had a leak on my cold water inlet valve so I replaced it with a new one. Since I did this replacement, the unit will not dry. It goes through approximately 30-40 gallons of water on the dry cycle and at the end of it the clothes are hot and wet. I had a technician look at it and recommended a circuit board replacement. I replaced the board and got the same issue. All limits seem to be operating properly, no codes, and the unit seems to drain properly. Is there something I’m missing?

    • Hi Griffin,

      Please, have a look at the video in my FAQ section Q#26: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#26, where you can see how to properly clean the lint in the inside of the machine. There might be a lint build up and drainage problems, maybe also because of this.

      • Griffin Mason

        Thanks for the reply. I think I have narrowed the issue to the water inlet valve. When compared with my old one, the port with the restrictive or in it is in a different location. Can you help me confirm what color plug on the solenoids go to which water line? Here is how I have it now, Black-drum water line, White-water line to pre wash fill, Red-water line to softener fill.

        • Honestly, I wouldn’t follow the colors, if you are not sure how it was originally plugged in, I would just try to make sure that the port with the restrictive is exactly in the same position as described in the video and then plug the other two lines accordingly.

          • Griffin Mason

            I actually did that. I ran a cycle and found the prewash and detergent were backwards but the dry cycle did finally work. I reversed the wires for the detergent drawer and everything seems to be good now. Thank you for all your help!

          • You’re welcome Griffin.

  • Thais Coimbra

    Hi, Jaro. My Midea MFL70 is showing an E30 error. I cannot close the door anymore…

    Could you help me out?

    P.S.: Thank you for your website! It is really useful 🙂.

    • Thanks Thais 🙂 The E30 error code is a door locking failure. The unit attempted to lock the door several times without success.

      1.) First, make sure your door is closed firmly. Check for anything that may be blocking the door latch.
      2.) Check that the latch is aligned to the door lock.
      3.) Unplug the unit for 30 minutes to reset the electronics.

      If the unit still does not lock, I’m affraid you’ll need to call a Midea service. Be sure to have your serial number ready.

  • Porquoi

    I keep getting error code E10 on my CWD1510S. I did a search and kept coming up with a possible hose issue and the washer not filling up quick enough although I rechecked my hoses and do not see anywhere this can be coming from. It was also working for a load earlier this morning, but the second load is having this problem.

    • Hi Porquoi,
      it truly is about the washer not filling up quick enough. Maybe you should check again the installing and having a look at this video if you haven’t so far: https://youtu.be/Qwu3VZc1PLU

  • JTM

    I have the RCA RWD200 version of this machine. It is showing an error code of E0A and I cannot find out any info on this code. Could someone please provide with some info, possible solution? Also, the manual says to call for service, but doesn’t give a number to call. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    • Hi JTM, unfortunately there’s not much information on this particular rebrand of the machine but from what I could find it looks like it’s an error with the temperature sensor. Most probably the error code E-0A or EOA means that the control board thinks that the combo is not heating. You can check that by touching the machine. If it gets warm, there’s a possibility that the control board will need to be changed.

  • Theresa Glover Radke

    Any idea how many actual amps the midea version uses when it’s running in washing or drying mode? I’m thinking of installing one of these in my conversion school bus .. but I run only solar power electricity so can’t really have something that sucks 10 amps all the time when it runs.

    • Hi Theresa,
      It’s around 10-12 amps. Sorry but I cannot help you with the solution for the solar panel connection.

  • Travis Hoffman

    Recent problem… Sometimes when I leave a load in the unit after a dry cycle, the drum will fill up with water. If I’m not careful to turn the machine on before opening the door (so the unit automatically locks the door), water goes everywhere! I can tell its filling up with water as opposed to failing to dry because if i turn the unit on after noticing it has water in it post-cycle and drain, the top of my load is dry and warm and the bottom is soaked. Could this be my Washer Water Inlet Valve failing on the dry cycle? I feel like the condenser is just not turning off the cold water valve causing the drum to slowly fill up… Any thoughts? I should add… If i unplug the machine and plug back in after this happens, it often will fix this problem temporarily…

    • Travis Hoffman

      Also, no error codes show.

      • Hi Travis, I’m sorry but from what you say it looks like your best option is to call the service to have a look at it, especially if it started to happen just recently.

  • Colin

    I have had this unit for about 10 months now, and I’m not a huge fan. Something is always wrong with it and it requires a lot of finicking…

    Now when I try to dry stuff I get an “E37” error code. Any ideas what that could be? The dry cycle stops when the error shows up.

    • Hi Colin, this is directly from the Edgestar website:
      “The EdgeStar Combo Washer Dryer is designed to sense various conditions that may prevent the unit from operating in a safe and efficient manner. E37 is a temperature sensor error. When the unit cannot properly detect the internal drum temperature it will not be able to proceed with its drying cycle and will display the E37 error code.

      It is recommended that you power the unit OFF, unplug the unit and wait 15 minutes and then power the unit back ON. Oftentimes, this will reset the built in electronic controls and reset the machine.

      If problems persist, please consult with an authorized technician or contact EdgeStar service at 800-297-6076. Please have your model# and serial # available.

      Hope that helps..

  • Angie

    I’m using this unit for the firs time and now that the cycle of wash and dry is completely done the door lock will not release. We have unplugged it as the manual says. We are not getting an error code. How do I get the door open???

  • Chris Cox

    Tried to find notes (past comments) on this but didn’t see anything. We have been using the machine for a couple months now. Everything has been working fine, but my wife went to turn it on one day and nothing happened. No lights, beeping, signal of turn on, etc.

    I took the top off and when it’s unplugged, and then I plug it back in, and push the power button, I hear this small click sound near the power button. Not sure if something fired electronically, or if this is something more common.

    Would love to get your thoughts.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    • Hi Chris,
      based on what you said, I think that truly something might have fired electronically and your unit requires a technician to come have look at it.

  • Matt

    Hi! I keep getting an E38 code. I haven’t been able to find out what it means. Anybody know what it is?

    • Hi Matt,
      The error code E38, same as E37, refer to an inlet air temperature sensor failure. According to the Edgestar folks, you should unplug the appliance and check the wire harness connections between the inlet air temperature sensor and the main control board. Reconnect any loose wires or replace the wire harness if damaged. Check the resistance of the inlet air temperature sensor using a multimeter. You should measure around 5,000 ohms at room temperature. If resistance is off by more than 1000 ohms, replace the inlet air temperature sensor.

      If you already tried unplugging the machine and letting sit without power for a few minutes and the error code still comes up after plugged back in, I’m afraid your best choice is to call service to have a look at it.

  • Victoria Hunt-Finlan

    Hi!
    im looking into splendide washer/dryer combo. I own a condo and looking for something that easy to install to the drain line to the drain located under my kitchen sink. I asked sales how the machine is installed and they said it was installed just like a dishwasher. I’m confused. The machine has hot And cold water line, and a drain hose. Do I still need a plumber to install hook up hot/ cold water lines? It’s fine if I need too because I have the money to do so but my problem is my drain. Im located on the top second floor and the floors are concrete so i can’t drill in the floor the reach my neighbor ceiling. And having the drain line threaded through the wall will not pass California code. So splendide seems like a good option to try… are there better brand options?

    • Hi Victoria,
      yes, you will still need a plumber to connect your w/d combo under the kitchen sink. Regarding other brand options, actually most of them are able to use in the kitchen this way. As I mention in the ranking panel on the right hand side of the page, in my opinion based on many things taken into account – the best choice is http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/lg-wm3488hw/

      Have a great day!

  • Samantha Kislek

    We have a washer/dryer combo and was wondering what the E21 message is?

  • owleyes

    Hey Jaro, I’m drying my clothes and dryer has been on 15mins for about an hour now.

    • That’s strange, did it happen to you more times?

      • owleyes

        Yes, every time

    • Dixiane Hallaj

      I have the same problem. It stays on 15 mins. forever. I finally turned it off, but had to wait a long time before I could start, then pause and it finally unlocked.

      • Maybe it’s just an error in the calculation of the time necessary to dry the clothes, have you tried to let the drying process go for more than 3 hours?

        • Dixiane Hallaj

          I called and the service person said that it will stay there until the machine does not detect moisture. Then it takes a 15 minute cool down period before unlocking. Personally, I’m think heating clothes that long bumps the carbon footprint up too high, so I will continue to stop the process and use a small drying rack. The convenience is still outstanding.

          • Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us Dixiane.

  • owleyes

    Every time my clothes are finished drying the door never open…I’ve waited over 2hrs…I then had to understand plug it to get it to unlock

    • Owleyes, typically, a door that remains locked will automatically unlock when the unit is given sufficient time to cool down. The thing is that it has sensors to monitor for safety and operational issues. One of these specific safety features is designed to prevent the door from being opened while the contents of the wash tub are hot.

      If the door remains locked, you can manually override the locking mechanism by following the instructions in this video: https://youtu.be/4xbXspQpG3w

      Hope that helps..

    My machine is an MFL70 D1211S and it will start, but it won’t run and it shows an error code of E12. It won’t run after that and won’t unlock. I havecwet other trapped in there!

    • Hi TangoC,
      it can be that there’s something that is not allowing the water to drain. That is why the door is not unlocking. In the very front at the bottom, there is a small plastic door that will flip down. There is a pump filter that will unscrew for cleaning. Be sure to unplug the machine and have towels or a floor drain as it will leak out if there is water in there.

      IMPORTANT: Leaning it back against the wall will help to prevent much leakage. Let me know what you find.

    • Sleepydoll

      Did you ever find out what caused the E12 error? As I’m currently experiencing the same error with my EdgeStar – CWD1510W . I cleared a E21 error by cleaning out the rubber drain hose that had coins and lint in it.. it gets to 12 mins sits there for some time then give an E12

      • Sleepydoll, the error code E12 means that there’s an overfill detected. It can be caused by oversudsing from overloading or you just added too much detergent. If this happens, the pressure sensor will read that there is too much water inside.

        To get to the root of the problem try to check for:
        – sudsing
        – the air chamber & the pressure switch hose
        – water level sensor
        – the wiring to water pressure sensor
        – connections to water level sensor
        – main electronic control board

        Hope that helps.

        • Sleepydoll

          Thank you for responding. I was doing a test run with no detergent or anything just a short wash cycle. I did have the spin speed set to 0 but I don’t think that would do it..
          All the rest of that sounds a bit complicated.. but I will look up a diagram (I think there’s a video identifying parts..) and see what I can come up with.. Thank you..

          • It can be actually pretty complicated, normally this is something that technicians come and have a look at. Yes, there is a video that explains the functioning a little bit – you can find it in my FAQ section, question #26: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#26

          • Sleepydoll

            Thank you so much for your help. As it turns out.. I could have resolved this problem when I first took it apart (partially). So today I not only disconnected the drain hoses I removed the drain pump and opened it. To reveal a wad of material, that was wedged between one of the propellers. It took a little effort to remove it. I have since washed 3 loads of clothes.. Thanks again.. I can definitely see how the two errors could run hand and hand..

          • You’re welcome Sleepydoll and thank you for sharing your experience. It may help others if they find themselves in a similar situation. I like how you had no problems to go into the details of the issue even when it got more technical. You’re a smart girl!

  • Melody Ry

    Had an E3A error, cleaned out the lint from the fan and tube thing the lint goes down, now it doesn’t dry anything. No longer an error code, just not drying. What else should I try?

    • Hi Melody, if you haven’t done so yet, make sure you watch the entire Edgestar maintenance video that I share on my FAQ page question #26: http://www.washerdryercomboz.com/faq/#26 and if that doesn’t help I’m affraid you’ll need to call a technician as some part may need to be replaced.

  • Melissa Munday

    What does the E64 mean?

    • Melissa Munday

      Help AND It never drys a thing ? But I would like to have this fixed . Cause this is something that goes in my fith wheel and I live in it !!!

  • Melissa Munday

    Could you tell me what the E64 means?

    • Hi Melissa,
      The error 64 refers to the heater open circuit – Heating element or wiring is probably defective and the heater coils and connections for open circuits should be checked. You might need to replace heater and/or wiring.

      If you know a technical person and want to do more checking/testing, you can check the resistance of Outlet Control Thermistor.

      Resistance should be between 4.9K Ohm and 6.2K Ohm at room temperature (68-77° F or 20-25° C).

      • Melissa Munday

        Thank you for that info i was wondering . Is there not a video on it by chance? Or nither can i seem to find the MANUAL on it can you help me there???

        • Yes Melissa, there actually is a video that might help you better understand the heating process and its operating elements: https://youtu.be/IXInJIzBkNs

      • Laura Wegener

        Hi Jaro, we have the same error, E64, and could not get any resistance close to 4.9K Ohm. We also dont know where the Outlet Control Thermistor is to be sure we were checking the right wiring. Can you explain? Thank you.

        • Hi Laura, it’s hard to describe but I think that the best thing in this case is to simply call a technician.

  • Melissa Munday

    Can i get the schematics for that

  • Sleepydoll

    Hello, I have a EdgeStar – CWD1510W I was getting an E12 error then I got an E21 error. I cleared the coin trap (there was a nickle in there) and took the black rubber drain hose off where it connects the the drum and where it connects to the drain pump. I retrieved two pennies and a bunch of lint.. I verified there was nothing else in there and even verf as well as I could that there was nothing stuck in the other ends (around the drum and pump) I reattached everything..

    It runs until there is 12mins remaining… then it sits there for a long time then proceeds to give the E12 error message.

    I have been able to drain the machine using a shop vac from the coin trap so the door opens.

    Any idea what could be causing this?

  • Happy User

    Bought the Midea w/d combo…So far so good with the exception after the third dry cycle the door would not open. Unit had cooled down and still the door remained locked. I read several suggestions on how to unlock the door.. Including taking off the top and reaching down to release some lever. Before trying any of the suggestions I decided to run the spin only cycle…It ran for 11 minutes and when the cycle ended the door unlocked!😃

    • Nice, thank you very much for your experience with this model, we really appreciate it!

  • Tomas Ruiz

    Hey Jaro, do you know if any techs that can fix this washer/dryer in Miami, Florida? Please let me know ASAP.

    • Hi Tomas, I think that your best bet is to just Google someone close to your area to come and have a look at the machine, it should be ok.

  • Mairead

    I suspect I have something lodged in my EdgeStar – CWD1510W drain pump. When I cleaned out the coin trap, all of the water from the load drained out. I removed as much as possible with a wet vac and started a spin cycle. All I hear is a slight hum during the sections of the cycle where water should be pumping out. I watched all of the videos including the one on how to inspect the drain pump. All of them either leave off before, or start up after, the bottom panel that includes the door to the coin trap has been removed. Do I have to take off the entire front of the washer to get that panel off? I flipped the machine on its side and tried to disconnect the hoses from the pump, but can’t get an adequate grip on the clamps with the pump still attached.

  • Will Kelley

    What’s an E55 error code on midea 700 washer combo ?

    • Hi Will, sorry for the late response. I think that it’s either the digital discharge temperature sensor T5 malfunctioning, or the motor is overheating.

  • Hi Mairead, thank you very much for sharing your experience and explaining to us how you managed to solve your issue. I’m sure a lot of readers will find it useful, take care!

  • George Mangrum

    I have a Midea MFL70 D1211S and I am having a problem with mine. It worked fine for several months and then all of a sudden it is just powered down won’t respond. I’ve unplugged it and waited but nothing. I have a load of clothes in it that thankfully the wash cycle had not begun becasue I cannot get the door to open. Suggestions?

  • GJSM

    Awesome information, Jaro. This is the one stop shop page for troubleshooting.

    Hello I had this machine and I’m having problems with her , the cycle is stoped and I cannot open the door in the scream said ” E64″ can you help me ?

    • Hi Ori, I’ve actually answered this question more times on this page, please use the CTR + F key shortcut and search for E64 to find it.

  • ابو يوسف

    hi > i have midea washing machine its showing an E62 . it not washer and dryer .

    • I’m not sure about it but this class of errors means something wrong in the system and requires a technician to have a look at it..
