Check the computer. Make sure that it is still good. You can do this with a volt meter and make sure that it is getting the right amount of volts when the unit ispowered on

Why does my kemore elite always get out of balance when spinning worst with a light load


When Loading, Always Distribute Clothes Evenly (weight wise) With A Light Load Usually Clothes Will Become On One Side Before End Of Wash Cycle--If You Look Before Spin Cycle And This Had Happened, Redistribute and restart from present position (cycle wise)

Hello, Re: frontloading washer Model C45172 Our washer has been operating withiout hitch since purchase about five years ago, We love it. Today I tried to program it to do an extra rinse after wash...


For the Elite (HE) machines:

Press 'STOP' twice, press 'POWER', choose a wash cycle (such as 'NORMAL'), select wash options (water temp), press 'START' to finish the reset sequence.

Other Kemore electronic washers:

Unplug the machine for a minute, plug it in. Press 'PAUSE/CANCEL' twice.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Have a kenmore elite 3 washer...stopped with 8 mins left in cycle...try to restart but getting F DL code...cannot open washer door


A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code.

Possible Causes / Procedure

• Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
• Door switch/lock unit failure.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check door switch/lock unit.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Replace the door lock mech if the wiring is ok

PF(Power Failure) error appears each time the washer starts.


PF simply means there was a power failure since the last time you used the machine.
To clear it - simply power cycle it.
