Question about Kenmore Elite Washing Machines
I been skeptical about buying the CCU board due to the cost of 250 Dll Plus tax and there is no return if I am wrong. I did the diagnostic test Following all the proper steps and I think I did it right ( three times just to make sure I received the same results ). The process went through Like it was suppose to go, from C:00 through C:08 with no interruptions Or any signs of any type. Then the washer turns off by itself and I did not see any codes on the front board but when I opened the door code 0:02 came on . Could this be where the problem is at ? Reading this code from the service manual, it shows dispenser motor / dispenser contact. Am I reading it right or wrong ? My initial code it has always been F11 and I just can't get to the bottom of this. Can any suggestions be provided ? THANK YOU. !!!!!!

First of all, make sure you unplug the washer before making any measures, and make sure you unplug any connectors from the CCU, so you aren't reading parallel paths. Isolate the components you wish to test from the CCU or you may get inaccurate readings.
The reading across the heating element terminal should read 15 ohms. Make sure you aren't grounding your probe against the case, or you will get improper readings.
The NTC will read approximately what you have at room temperature. Was the connector plugged in before you began troubleshooting? A common problem is the connector falling off and generating the error code.
As far as the connector plug on the CCU is concerned, plug layouts can differ between models. Make sure you have the correct connector plug to the NTC. You may have to hand over hand it to find it. Unplug the connector at the CCU and leave it plugged in to the NTC. Perform a resistance check across the PLUG terminals. You should get the same readings as you mentioned before if the plug and wires are good. This not checks the resistance of the NTC, but also proves continuity of the wires.
Doublecheck your readings and let me know what you have. I would like to rule out a CCU problem. It is not common for this error code. I hope this helps you.

easy repair, somply open the door, and l;ook behind the rubber boot, youll see a metal band holding it to the fornt of the machins( spring loaded at very bottom) roll the "clamp"wire off andremoveth righthand side of the boot, youll need to unscrew trhe 2 phillips screws holding the latch assy on nad it will slide right put, probly 3 connectors( youll have enough wire to almost pull all the way out.. replace with the new latch(wires only plug into correct spots, you cant do it wrong). resecure the latch and roll the rubber boot back over the front lip. rescuring the metal clamp may take a little patience, but get a third hand if available.. starting at top strecth over both sides and snap spring over the bottom. easy repair take youtime youll be fine!!

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

The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.
If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.

Let's focus first on error codes F22 and F26. Error code F22 is door lock fault and it flashes when the door lock fails to activate after 6 attempts while F26 flashes when the door switch is opened for more than 5 seconds while the door is locked or when the door is not opened after 3 consecutive cycles. Since you cannot do 3 consecutive cycles without opening the door, this may indicate that the door switch contacts are welded together. But both error codes may also indicate a malfunctioning CCU or any other component such as the motor controller unit (MCU).
Disconnect power then start troubleshooting the machine by disconnecting the MCU wire harnesses (MI3 and MS2) from the CCU then reconnect power and start the machine. If error codes F22 and F26 go away, then the MCU must be the culprit, replace it. If the error codes do not go away, disconnect power then test the continuity of the terminals of door switch harness DS2 both with the door open and close. It must have continuity, if the door lock and switch assembly is good, when the door is close and none when the door is open. Also test the continuity between the terminals of connector DS2 on the CCU and it should read open.
Proceed with the troubleshooting of the door lock switch and solenoids if the door switch contact is open when the door is open and close when the door is close. Disconnect power then disconnect the door lock switch harness from connector DLS2 on the CCU. Jump a wire between the terminals of DLS2 on the CCU then close the door firmly. Reconnect power then start the machine.
Post back the result of the tests and your observations about the behavior of the machine as you do the tests. It will help determine which part is causing the problem.
