Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
Being your local Sears repair man, I feel your pain. I also hate telling people that they will have to replace a very expensive board like that, but unfortunatly, that F1 code is usually a death sentence, especially to that model. try this, sometimes you can get lucky. Unplug the machine for about 10 minutes, then plug it back in. Thats about the only way you can "reset" the unit. You can also try to run a diagnostic test. Push and hold any button (besides the start,power, or cancel) for 3-5 seconds, then let go for 3-5 seconds, then push and hold same button again for 3-5 seconds, repeat this procedure until 88 displays on the control (or all lights come on on non-display models). If you have a display, it will read to you all failure codes (you will have to push the same button you used in the diagnostic start to move through all codes), then unit will start diagnostic tests when all codes have been retrived. If you have a non-display model, you will need the tech sheet (located behind the bottom panel or inside the machine on one side in an envolope). Each light will come on displaying a certian code, which you will then have to read the tech sheet to match the light configuration to its coresponding code. Wow, i think I have a headache, do it a couple times a day. If it is your board, one recomendation, check EBAY or online sales stores. They are a ton cheaper, and you can change the board easily yourself. Remove the top, wire to wire to the new brd, your on your way. Good luck, and let me know how it turns out.
