Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE/ Error Code F1

Upon Starting the washer it locks the door and starts, then The F1 Starts flashing and the washer stops. IF I stop it and start it really quick by the third try It will run through it's cycle. Help this has been an ongoing problem since I bought this machine. I am really frustrated with this. Our Kenmore Elite WAsher is just over 2 years old and is doing the same thing. Sometimes I hvae to press stop and start just once and other times twice. Has anyone found an uncostly solution? THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM, CODE F1 AND I SPEND THE FIRST 5 MINUTES AT THE WASHER AT EACH WASH TURNING THE THING OFF AND THEN ON AGAIN AND IT FINALLY GOES THROUGH THE CYCLE. HAVE TRIED USING DIFFERENT SETTINGS BUT NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK. AFTER READING ALOT OF WRITE UPS FROM CUSTOMERS I DON'T THINK SEARS WILL BE OF MUCH HELP.

    I have the same problem, but for me it happens when I first start to wash and then again at the rinse cycle. Stop and start until it continues on with the cycle.

    I have the exact same problem with my kenmore elite oasis he washer. My washer is 16 months old and i called sears this morning and they have told me that i would have to have the control board replaced on my washer and it is not covered under the warranty. Upon starting the machine the door locks, it begins to fill and immediately the F1 code pops up and shuts the washer off.

    when I try to start my washer the lid locks and it starts for a moment and then starts to beeb and flashes F1. sometimes I can shut it off and restart and it will run but usually takes 5-10 tries to get to wash.then sometimes it will do it again halfway through the cycle. this washer is an expensive piece of ****

    My Elite washer is doing the same thing as others have described. The F1 function comes on at the beginning of the cycle and I have to play the stop/start game until it decides to work. I'm treated to the same process in the middle of the cycle. The technician wants over $300 to replace the control board. That's almost half the price of the washer! How ridiculous, especially seeing that this F1 problem is so widespread! Sears needs to step up and put out a recall for this control board.

Sears Electric Dryer is flashing F01 What is wrong?


The F01 indicates a failed electronic machine control board. This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines. You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.
You can order a new control board from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Dryer turns on then stops in 5 seconds and flashes F40 code. shuts down


Check lint filter, check vent outlet at dryer, and continue on through vent checking for lint to the exit area of the vent. Keeping the vent lint free saves energy and reduces drying time.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer - no power (PF code)


Press and hold the "Start" button to restart the dryer cycle if the "PF" (power failure) error code appears. This code often appears when a cycle is interrupted before it completes. You may also check the breaker or household fuse, and ensure the machine has not come unplugged.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T quietpak 9 washer. It has stopped the wash load with about 11 minutes left several times. It gives and error code DL then F alternating. The door remains locked and anytime...


Hi,

The error you have is due to a failure in the door latch mechanism. There is a way to manually open the door if you are a little handy I can send you some instructions, it requires pulling the lower panel off (3 screws).

Let me know if you want me to help on this.

I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis Canyon Capacity Dryer. When I start it it runs for about 3 minutes and stops and flashes F or F1. What is that?


The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

LINK: http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wfgstgtftbtkrrdxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/gfsfgfsgqxgfqtqtgwf/1/1303472/5961857/image55806img-or.gif



NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.
