F26 Error - Door Switch?

I was told F26 was a manufacturer code, refers to door switch, according to Kenmore. The door is closed, I can hear it click. I've even unplugged the machine in order to reset it. Keeps saying "F26." I know the door is closed, does anyone have any ideas?

SIEMEMS WASHING MACHINE ERROR CODE F:26?


F20-30 is drain or intake
and can be within a given time
so can be something inside the pump or drum skin
or a bad intake valve filter ...

try reading the user manual

look at the makers site i found it easy...
and it has the error code list
your lazy or not looked...

youll find the info you need

try this also from a similar issue

http://www.manualslib.com/manual/770034/Siemens-Wfxd8400uc.html?page=34

look at the ' water does not enter the machine'

cross reference with other machines that c=share the same controllers

here is the answer i found about F26

\\:
The error F26 does indicate a fault in the door switch . There is a door unlock error that would display if the door is not locking or unlocking but the F26 means the control is not seeing the door switch open and close.

This is most likely a problem with the door switch
interlock
or a loose connection at the switch but not likely
its more likely a burned connection
and has high resistance so you perhaps need to check out the wires plug.. etc make sure the contacts are very good
The door switch is part of the door lock assembly part number 8183270 {not sure this is right}

this info is from a maker that uses the same chassis
not the same parts number

its prob the door switch ....!!!

How do I get washing machine door to unlock?


The error F26 does indicate a fault in the door switch circuit. See the image below for a complete listing of what can cause this error. There is a door unlock error that would display if the door is not locking or unlocking but the F26 means the control is not seeing the door switch open and close. One thing to try first before scheduling service or replacing the part is to check the connections on the door switch.
Unplug the washer first and remove the lower access panel and reach up to the door lock and try to feel for the connections and make sure they're tight.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE5t and the code F26 keeps coming up Please let me know what that is My acct is under the phone719-465-3853


The door switch sensor button may be sticking in the closed (pushed in) position. Try to get it to spring back out. Otherwise the washer computer "thinks" that the door has not been opened for three cycles (F26).
