Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite washing machine won't complete a full cycle

Washing machine is started by selecting normal wash but won't complete a full wash, it starts, runs for a few minutes then beeps and flashes codes H then F. The add a garmet is lit along with the wash light, the only way we can restart the wash is to hit cancel/pause to start it up again.

Then, after a few more minutes it does the same thing with the H then F flashing and we have to do the whole cancel/pause thing and start.

Then it will say suds and we have to hit the rinse/spin button to finish.

E90 error


The E90 error code is not a common error but it may occur when the washing machine electronics get wet for some reason. This may happen if wet clothes are left in the washer for a prolonged period after the wash cycle ends or if the same load is washed repeatedly.
One of the first steps whenever an error code appears on a Frigidaire washer is to perform a simple reset to the machine. To reset the washer, press and hold the "Cancel" button for 15 seconds. Then try to set a new wash cycle and press "Start." Note that any clothes that have finished washing should always be removed promptly after the cycle is done.

If the cancel button reset does not remove the E90 error code from the display, try a full power reset. To accomplish this type of reset, unplug the washing machine and wait 15 minutes or more. Then plug the washing machine back in and make a new wash selection. If the error code does not return, normal function may resume.

Unfortunately, if the cancel button and/or full power reset attempts do not eliminate the E90 error code, it is very possible that the electronic control board will need to be replaced. Here is the board to order.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

My washing machine will lock the door, start the cycle and within a minute, it will start beeping and flash an F, then an 11. At this point, I will hit the cancel button to break the cycle. Sometimes,...


The F11 error code is a communication failure between the 2 control boards. This includes both boards & the wiring harness as potential defective components. However, this is usually the main machine control board that needs replaced.

if this is a fridgidaire washer, I guess it's a clogged coin catcher. You have remove the front access panel and clean it out. I am working on that now.
