Kenmore Elite 5t shows an F30 code, water fill solenoid is making a noise like its not opening


This is a dispenser motor issue. If you pull the unit out and remove the 3 screws coming into the back of the top panel, you can remove the top panel to access the top of the dispenser. There is a motor that turns a plastic lever on the dispenser. you might be able to manually help the arm move to get past the error code, but ultimately you will need to replace the dispenser motor. Here is the part to order.

Softener does not dispense and we get a code F 30


This error code F30 flashes when the central control unit (CCU) cannot drive the dispenser motor to the proper dispensing position and hence the softener dispensing problem. Disconnect power then remove the top panel and check the dispenser motor assembly for damage or broken parts. You may run a diagnostic test then take a look at the dispenser motor and observe how it behaves. Replace the dispenser motor assembly if damaged.

F30 code? Makes a weird noise and drains the soap from dispenser but no water is added and won't spin.

My Whirlpool washer flashed F30. Not filling up with water.


Hi,
"F30" indicates "DISPENSER SYSTEM ERROR" When the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position this error appears in your washer. To fix this problem follow these procedures.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Check mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to the top of the dispenser. 3. Check wire harness connections to the dispenser motor and Central Control Unit (CCU). 4. Check dispenser motor for powered rotations.

Thank you !!
