Re: Kenmore He4t frontloading machine flashing F 02

I have received the HF error twice in the past year on this machine - Kenmore HE4T. Once it was something caught in the drain pump filter and the 2nd I forgot to turn the water supply back on when fixing the door from and DFL error. On the DFL error I replaced the door lock, door latch and door hinge for $100 in parts saving probably double that in labor. These repairs are fairly simple and the forums are a great source of information on the repairs.

I followed the first set of instructions, and it turned out to be really straightforward. The only difference was that my HE4T only had two screws on the toe panel. Thanks!

Kenmore elite he4t reads error 2f

Consult your owners manual; there is a list of common error codes that will help you identify whether or not you require to bring in a technician or you can solve it yourself. Being a retired sales manager with Sears, if I recall correctly the 2f refers to a faulty control panel, if you can't find your manual go to this site: you should be able to download the manual there. Good Luck!

Washer won't start; has alternating "dl" and "f" errors....can't reset

This is a Door Lock Error. The service manual lists the following causes: Door Lock Mechanism is broken or removed from door. Door Switch Unit Lock Failure-Unplug washer and check door switch, wiring connections, and the connection to the CCU (Central Control Unit (You have to remove the lid of the washer for this). To get at the switch, you have to remove the lower front panel. These are torx, I believe 3 screws. By turning yourself on your head, you can visually inspect the lock, and manually lock/unlock to check for bind (pulling/pushing a black plastic handle about two inches long with a teardrop shaped handle on the end.
