Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Just intalled a Kenmore HE5 washer and on second wash on the spin cycle at about timer 16 minuets or so display showes F28. Had service out three times each said its a ground wire problem. No fix, small loads do not seem to be affected. Tech has ordered a wire harrnes asm. I would like to know what the code means. Tech will be out to install it tomorrow. I am not sure tech has a handel on the problem.
F28 is a serial bus error from the CCU (Central Control Unit) to the MCU (Motor Control Unit).
All you need is some Electronics contact cleaner spray and a 1/4 inch socket to remove the top of the machine and the back of the machine.
The CCU is the computer looking box at the top front right hand corner.
Find connector M13, (has red marking on it and only 3 wires) disconnect it by pushing the retainer tab back and pulling gently on the connector.
Spray the contacts of the connector and computer with connector cleaner.
Then re-assemble connector.
The MCU is in the back lower left corner.
Find the connector with 3 wires and red mark, and remove this connector in the same way you did the other, spray it and re-install.
Put the back and top back on.
