That means that there is a short .

Parts that you need to inspect are:

Power board : if it is shorted you find burnt areas or blown components on board.

Wiring harness : If that is the problem it can happen because of vibration, it is rather unlikely.

Motor and Motor control Unit : MCU is a board, and it is sealed inside machine, if it is shorted, same as control board.

Power cable : excluded, machine will trip from start.

All repairs must be done by a technician.

Enter model number here to find diagrams and replacement parts.

    And technodeal also right, in case that instead of the plug the machine is tripping the circuit breaker.
    In that case check that the machine is not just overloading the system, and tripping, turn off all other appliances.

Have old kenmore elite he3 washer. Have wet laundry after spin out. Have checked ball be low drum, replaced strainer, pump motor, cleaned all hoses. Did a test run in the drain and spin cycle. For like 7...


If the washer is taking more water during spin, then most likely it is thinking the water level is low for the load. It is a smart washer and tries to adjust water according to load. This can mean the level sensor is giving wrong sensor. I would try to run the washer with a cleaning agent (not bleach) available from specialist stores or washing machine retailers.
Also observe if the drain pump is running all through the spin cycle. If not that is likely causing water to remain. But controller is thinking there is no water and not starting the pump when required.

You should be able to locate the parts in these diagrams.

Kenmore Elite HE3 Error FH I forgot to turn the water hoses on when I started a load. The FH error sounded at 33 minutes of a 45 minute cycle. I can't reset the machine now. It is stuck. It is unplugged....


according to kenmore, you should press the "pause/cancel" button twice and it should release it.  it may also have locked up the CCU, central control module and might need to be replaced.

Kenmore Elite HE3 front loader F-11 and FDL codes


yes!! the F/11 is triggered under high voltage conditions like high speed spinning. The part is called the MCU motor control unit. if it goes into failure while using your machine and locks the door, just wait 3 minutes and the door will unlock after the MCU resets. Try using you machine with a low speed spin for awhile.
