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.

Kenmore HE2 Plus 110.47512600 Error Code F30 = Dispenser System Error. Have reset CCU multiple times. When cycle starts, dispenser motor runs for 3 minutes (~11 revolutions) then stops with F30 error


The F30 error code will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.

* It could have a mechanical failure in the linkage between the dispenser motor and the top of the dispenser.
* Loose wire connection between the machine control board and the dispenser motor
* Failed dispenser motor

Machine powers itself on-off / Error code F-01


I would try to find out what the "F-01" means but if you need to replace circuit board they normal are easy to "unplug and replug" wires. But SEARS tech's would be best to repair. If can't find a source to tell you what F code stands for , call SEARS service and when he diagnoses problem you could see or ask him how to replace my tech is helpful that way, then it only cost the "service casll" rate and not hte return part replacement cost also

F-26 error message


F-26, is a door lock switch error code. Some things to try; Unplug the washer for 1 minute and see if the error clears. If not, try entering the diag mode by pressing any key except pause/ cancel. Press for 4 seconds and release for 4 seconds 4 times. If entered correctly, all lights should light and the first error should appear. Press the same key to advance through all the errors. When the errors finish. It will start an automatic test mode that tests all componets. The first thing it will test is the door lock. If this fails you more than likley have a door switch problem. Let me know how you make out. Catriver
