We closed the hatch door, pressed “Start”, and after a while we noticed that the machine had stopped and the F4 code was on the display. What to do? What does the F4 error mean in the Atlant washing machine? How to fix the problem yourself? You will find answers to all these questions in this article.
Error F4 on the display of the Atlant machine says that there are problems in the drain system and it is not possible to drain the waste water from the tank. Before calling the master and panicking, you should find out if there is a reason for panic and understand what the problem is.
On washing machines without a screen, the on / off light and the second indicator in the bottom row will be lit.
How to fix the error yourself
Before calling the master and panicking, you should find out if there is a reason for panic and understand what the problem is.
- Control failure. To resolve this error, you must restart the Atlant washing machine. To do this, turn it off using the power button and unplug the plug from the outlet for 5–10 minutes. After that, turn on the machine again. If the error was random, then the code will not appear.
- Blockage in the filter. Often, the F4 error appears due to debris in the drain filter. Various threads, a trifle from pockets clog holes over time and water does not pass. In this case, the blockage must be removed. To do this, drain the water manually, after laying rags, then unscrew the drain filter and clean it of debris. At the end, put everything back in place and check for errors. If it disappears, the cause has been eliminated.
- Blockage in drain hose. It often happens that debris under the action of the pump passes into the drain hose and clogs it, thereby blocking the passage of water. To solve this problem, you must first drain the water, then disconnect the drain hose and clean it under a strong stream of hot water, then return it to its place and start the Atlant machine again in the spin mode. The error code should disappear.
- Blockage in the sewer. Often the cause of the F4 error on the Atlant typewriter is a clogged siphon or sewer pipe. To diagnose such an error, it is necessary to pull out the end of the hose connected to the drain and turn on the spin mode. If the error did not appear and the water was safely drained by the machine, then it is necessary to clean the sewer pipe with a steel cable, or a siphon, having disassembled it.

Faults requiring repair
Unfortunately, not always the cause of the error is a simple malfunction. Therefore, it is necessary to be aware of other possible reasons.
|The Atlant washing machine does not drain the water and freezes in the wash or in the rinse mode, shows the F4 error.||Drain pump defective.
The pump malfunction occurs due to the development of the norm of the resource of the watch or when small objects get into it.
|The pump needs to be replaced.|
|While draining the water, the Atlant machine makes a hum and the water does not go away. In this case, there is a code F4.||Clogged pump (drain pump).
All kinds of small items, various debris from pockets, twists of thread or wool, slipping through the drain filter, enter the pump and block its normal operation.
|It is necessary to disassemble the pump and clean it of foreign objects.|
|Clogged drain pipe.
The branch pipe located between the drain filter and the tank is also prone to clogging with various objects (thread, wool, small change, etc.).
|It is necessary to clean the nozzle from blockage.|
|The washing program is interrupted and code F4 is displayed.
The appearance of an error is possible at any stage of the program (rinsing, spinning, washing), and it is also possible that it will appear immediately after starting.
|Defective electronic control module.
|In cases of failure of circuit elements for various reasons, their replacement is necessary.
If the error occurs due to a firmware failure, you should reflash the controller program.
If the above methods did not help get rid of the error, or it was caused by a malfunction in the microprocessor, then a complete replacement of the board is necessary.
|The washing machine drains water during washing and stops, showing error code F4.
Atlant hung during the spin cycle and showed an F4 error. The door is locked.
|The pressure switch is faulty.
The sensor responsible for the water level in the tank does not work. The controller does not receive a signal from an empty tank. Most likely there was a short circuit in the sensor connection circuit.
|The pressure switch needs to be completely replaced.|
|The Atlant washing machine stopped at one of the points of the washing program. F4 error is displayed||Faulty power supply to control units.
The pump or pressure switch is not supplied with power or the control signal is interrupted between these nodes and the control board. This is due to oxidation of the contacts, broken wires, or a short circuit in the wiring.
If the contacts are oxidized, they must be cleaned or replaced.
If there is a break in the wires, they should be replaced.
No one can exclude the appearance of malfunctions in the operation of the washing machine. Therefore, this article will be useful to all users of the Atlant machine. Often, the error code is caused by simple malfunctions that you can deal with on your own by reading them in the sections above.
