Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

KENMORE ELITE HE5

We just received a replacement washer and dryer after having had defective/non-fixable ones after only 6 months. We had the mamager order brand new machines. I attempted to do laundry today and am getting an F20 error, despite the hoses being connected correctly. I read and re-read the manuel and then contacted service, where the "washer specialist" was unable to find an F20 code in her book. I read her the description I had in my manuel. She was unable to provide any assistance, ststing the machine appears defective. This is extremely frusterating as we waited for service, the delivery. Has anyone had this experience with this code? Any advice? Thanks.

    I have the same problem with my HE5t washer. Our water pressure is not low and you can see water filling the washer and it just shuts off. We checked the hoses and the screens and they seem to be clear of any obstruction.

Non-operational in RV when Onan generator and Xantrex inverter are on


Are you still under warranty with your RV? If so, take your RV back to them and try to get this problem fixed through them. You know more about electronics than I do (LOL) however, I do believe the RV sales/repair should be taking care of this issue for you.

I on the other hand own the Majestic brand washer and dryer and I am very dissapointed with them. The washer is broken already and is only 15 months old. Ugh!

Good luck, I hope your issue is a simple fix.

6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!


Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....

Kenmore oasis washer


Jenine, I have run into this problem on a few of the Oasis washers. In talking to the Whirlpool tech rep (Whirlpool makes the Oasis), I was under the understanding that they had some issues with the initial main board supplied in these washers causing the F code. Therefore, in changing this washer out, you probably received one in stock with the same board. What I would do, since it's under warranty is to have the technician order a board from the factory. Any revisions to the new board should be in there. As long as you have both water valves on, no clogged screens on the hoses and 120 volts at the outlet your washer should operate normally.
