SOURCE: kenmore elite HE 3t - error code F dU and door is locked

Just in case there is a pull string with a loop, all plastic under the latch, need to pull the toe panel off and reach up inside the right, unplugged of course until you feel the switch. a pull latch is below the switch incase this happens and hats off to all star/ a serial error or a faulty switch is most of what causes this to start.

SOURCE: F05 Error Code on Kenmore Elite HE3T Washer Model 11044932200

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.

SOURCE: washer starts then stops and displays f28

hello southerndav4,

you said, you when the unit is started in any cycle it will lock the door and then run water in for a couple of seconds. It then stops the water and unlocks and immediately locks again. There is no further action except the timer counting down until f-28 code. There is no tub rotation and the ccu was replaced.

I see you did a couple of tests and replaced the CCU!!
You did do what I would have suggested.

You may need to use hands on service this time!
rather than swapping out expensive parts blindly!

Let me know...
Please remember to leave a rating

This is the condition fo the F28 error code
The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

This is what you need to check and or repair

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
Check connections of the CCU board within the housing.
Make sure all grounding switches are engaged.
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the MCU connectors.

SOURCE: WFW9200SQA12 F22 code problem

The problem you are experiencing is a Long Drain error. You need to check the drain pump reservoir and drain lines for obstructions. the following link explains how:

If cleaning the pump does not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer that you replace it. It does not take much to permanently damage these small pumps. If anything has been lodged in the intake if the pump for any significant period of time, the motor and/or impeller may become damaged. This results in a pump they "appears" to be running, but may not be pumping anything.

In addition, check the drain hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the intake side of the drain pump. I have personally found small articles of clothing lodged in this area blocking the drain pump. Garments bags are highly recommended for small articles to prevent this.

I hope you find this information helpful. if you require additional assistance, please let me know.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore HE2

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.

Please make sure you accept the solution which you found the most helpful and informative. Failure to do so will automatically give credit to the last solution viewed no matter how unhelpful and non-informative it is. Accepting a solution will not prevent you from communicating with the expert at no further cost. You can still post clarifications and follow-up questions as long as you need further assistance regarding the problem stated herein.

What does error code F-90 mean on a Kenmore delf cleaning wall oven

The F90 error code indicates that the door unlock time exceeded. This will happen if the lock is in the locked position with the oven door open or if the lock motor fails. Have someone hold in the oven door light switch while you set the control up for the self-cleaning cycle. Let the self-cleaning cycle run for only 4-5 minutes then press stop/cancel. This should allow the lock assembly to reset & retract the door lock back into the unlocked position.

You can also try resetting the appliance by disconnecting it from the outlet or switch off the circuit breaker for 20-30 minutes. Once power is restored run a test cycle. If this does not work I suspect a door lock assembly failure. This type of diagnosing will require accessing the lock assembly & using a volt/ohm meter for testing

Door will not lock to start wash cycl

This sounds like a classic door lock problem. There was a design change in the lock assembly because of numerous problems.
You say you had the door replaced, did they replace the lock assy also?
The control puts power to the wax motor that operates the latch. As the door locks, the latch activates the lock switch that tells the control the door is locked.
What kind of reading are you getting on the lock switch?

Whirlpool wfc7500vw when put into any cycle selection the door lock lights comes and stays on and the draining/unlock light flashes for a minute then the door unlocks once opened and closed the cycle...

When you first start a load, the machine does perform several self checks. One of them is the door lock test. It locks the door and checks a loop back signal from the lock. At this point, it usually tests the drain pump to make sure it cycles on and off. In my case, the Maytag unit we own actually unlocks the door and immediately locks it again right before the actual wash cycle begins. I suppose this is a double check because if the door indicates it is unlocked, the washer won't do anything (like fill up with water, or spin...anything that either floods the room and hurts somebody). The door switch should be the impetus to start the tests. If the switch is mounted to an adjustable bracket, or the bracket is loose, then maybe it is being pushed out of position when you close the door. The fact that you can open the door after it unlocks, re-close it and the machine works normally tells me there is adjustment that needs to be made. Either the the little lever or pin that actuates the switch is bent or broken, or the door needs to be adjusted on its hinges to get the pin aligned correctly. Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

Kindest regards, Carl

The door locks when the start button is pressed, but the cycle will not start. Diagnostics shows F26 door lock assembly. Whirlpool WFW8300SW. I have replaced the CCU and it still locks but nothing happens...


If the door has not been opened for 3 consecutive cycles or the door switch is open while the door is locked for more than 5 seconds.

Possible Causes/Procedure

-Door not opened during 3 consecutive cycles.

1. Open and close the door.
2. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

-Door switch open while door is locked.

1. Push the door and check if it is completely closed.
2. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed

Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.
