Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Water was leaking out front of washer had to stop and now code f01 is flashing -clothers are still sitting in water. How do we fix this?
I have Minimal skill level. But read many bloggs. Take the waste pump off; seriously not hard. Clean out the trap and also the magnetic shaft section in the motor. It rotates about 3/8" and pops off. I had all kinds of gue in the rotating shaft section water must have passed by the o ring.
I took off the top cover and found the mother brd. Hand checked all wires then I took the handle end of the screw driver and lightly hit the cover of the M/B to shake things up a little. Pushed the start button and its been working all night. Seriously if that fails get online and order the M/B it didn't look that hard to unplug some wires and replace. Thats the same as a technician would do. I learned that from my high dollar fridge with a bad ice maker $250 dollars latter 15 minute board swap. Thats why I tried on this one to do it myself.

F01 is usually control bd failure but first try removing power to washer hold start button or almost any button will work for 10-20 sec reconnect power and try again if still codes f01 suspect main control bd top rear of washer
