Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Kenmore Elite front loader dryer dispalys error code CF 01.

At this point I can still get it to run, but I cannot find this code in the manual and would like to determine if it is something I can fix before it stops completely.

    My dryer emits a beep periodically...started during night when dryer was not in use. The error code is CF then flashes 1 then 2, then 3.



    I can still use the dryer, but there is a beep every 15 secs or so.

CF01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board.
This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines.
You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes.
If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.

The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...

Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time.
Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer.
Reassemble and test the washer.

The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU.
The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate.
Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU.
There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed.
The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.

Cf code on testing the dryer (kenmore elite oasis canyon dryer)


The "C" codes are usually just indicators used during a test mode to tell what parts of the system are engaged but are usually followed by 2 numeric digits. (eg. C:00, C:01, C:02, etc.) I've never heard of a "CF" but what it means may depend on *exactly* what the machine is suppose to be doing at the time. You could see if you can locate the appliance's 'tech sheet' that may list such codes which should be with the unit's wiring diagram either inside the machine's control console on inside the washer's cabinet in a small pocket, pouch or envelope stuck to the RH side panel. Maybe it will give you a clue as to what is transpiring? You'll need to probably take of the panel to find it. As far as i know tho- after hitting the test it should actually come up with a c:01-c:08 meaning the test is complete. As loong as it only does this after hitting test you are ok, but double check the tech list inside the panel of your dryer. Hope this helps!

My Kenmore Elite Oasis dryer has a CF code and continuously beeps. Running or not.


The CF error is a communication failure between the main computer and the touch panel...you may have a bad or weak connection or a bad computer..I wold recommend that you contact your local Sears and ask them about recalls, and for service should this happen again.

If you have a little bit of knowledge mechanically you can unplug the dryer and pull the top off by removing the 3 screws across the back at the very top, slide it back and lift it off. Inside of the dryer, at least in mine, there was a plastic folder on the inside with tech instructions that list the fault codes and it also tells you how to run a diagnostics mode on your dryer. Hopefully this will help you at least determine if it is something you need to call a tech to fix.

What does error message F 11 mean? Kenmore front loader elite. Thanks!


This usually points to a wire that has rattled out of its socket on a kenmore washer. with all the vibrations in a washer, cables do shake out of place, you should take the top panel off by unscrewing it and sliding it back so you can get to the front and back wires and check every connection is clean and secure.
should fix your problem and save about $65USD

Check your manual should have a basic code listing in the back......is it pumping all the water out??? That might be off base....but it is the most common on a late model front loader.
