SOURCE: Trying to run diagnostics on

Hello,
What to check next is if the switches on the lower panel below the one where the door mounts,check that when the panel is off that those switch are closed and have ZERO omhs resistiance and the are open when panel is installed. To do the DISCONNECT POWER TO WASHER, remove that panel and check for continuty with the panel off them,then push the switch in as if the panel was on and see if the switches are open with infinate ohms.
If they check to be good ,since of you have already checked for tight good connections on CCU/MCU the MCU would need to be replaced.

Good luck,
Gene

Where is the MCU located on my kemore washer?


normally its located down below the drum on either side,but without a model number i cant tell you for sure because kenmore does not make any of their appliances,it could be a whirlpool,maytag,g.e.,frigidaire,etc.,the first 3 digits in their model number before the decimal point tell you who produced the appliance and the 8 numbers after the decimal point are model specific

I have a Kenmore HE2t front loader washing machine and getting a F 31 error and the door is locked with a load in machine


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Error F31 in your washer is displayed due to MCU (Motor Control Unit) failure. It is displayed if the heat sink gets too hot and then the MCU stops motor, then MCU sends the signal to CCU (Central control unit). Please check the wire connections between the CCU and MCU, if thats fine then check the motor operation. Hope you understand...replacing the part# that has gone bad is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore H2 PLUS reads F--28 code what does this mean?


The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.
Motor Control Unit (8540135)
Microcomputer Machine Control Unit (8540788)
It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for error code F28

If you find either the MCU or the CCU(Microcomputer Machine Control Unit) fixed it.

Here's the online repair manual for your
Whirlpool Duet Sport, but its identical to your HE2.
Give it time to download.
On page# 4-20 it shows how to access your MCU.

My washer beeps f 11


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. F11 is a communication error between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU). To start with check the wire harness connections between CCU and MCU, and then check the motor. If both of them appear to be working fine then it seems that the MCU of your washer has gone bad as the control unit seems to be working fine. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Error code F-28


It may be that the drain pump is not the problem at all. Error Code F-28 on the Kenmore HE2 means that there is a signal error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU)
