Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

No power in Kenmore HE2 Plus.

The machine was within one minute of finishing the cycle when all the lights started flashing very fast. No error code. We hit cancel, which turned off the lights, but when we tried to power it back up, nothing would happen. I manually opened the door and closed it, but that didn't help. I unplugged it and plugged it back in. Checked the breaker and it's not plugged into a GFI.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Kenmore HE2 washer will not automatically advance through all the cycles


I had this same /similar problem with my machine and found that the micro-computer board on the top rear near the cover of the machine are very prone to having bad electrical contacts on the board where the wire connectors go. The answer simply was to remove this board and add solder to each and every solder pad that goes to the connectors. The board is not bad (defective) just poor electrical connections.The repairman probably just wiggled the 1 with the issue and it worked for you for months as described! Perhaps you could get away with just disconnecting the electrical connectors and plugging them back in -it could buy you some more time before fixing it permanently with solder!

Good Luck!

HE2 Plus Washer starts then shuts off immediately.


Aren't microprocessor controlled appliances wonderful? Especially when the code is flawed! No wonder the space program bit the dust!

Won't finish the wash cycle and flashes the code F 02


This code means that the machine is not evacuating its water.

F/02 Long Drain
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

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.
