F09 Overload condition If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is Closed for more than 60 seconds an Overflow condition will occur. In an Overflow condition, the Door will remain locked, and the Drain Pump will run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the Display is cleared. Unplug the unit to service. Potential Causes ? Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked ? Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU) ? Check / Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects ? Check for Drain Pump Failure ? Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off ? Check the Pressure switch for proper operation Replace failed component.

What does a f 54 code mean?


F54 = Motor Control Overcurrent
Does the basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.
There is a detailed repair manual inside the machine. If you open the top of the machine with a screw driver in the front you will find the manual on the inside of the front panel.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Error codes

I own a HE3 kenmore elite for 4 years now and the troubleshooting codes are: SUD When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This causes the cycle to go longer to remove the excess suds. Reduce detergent amounts or use HE detergent. The F02 error I had with mine and it is a drain problem. Book says check the hose for kinks, clogged or is it more than 96 inches above the floor. On mine it was the fan pump on the forward motor that drains the washer. It was worn and not pushing out the water fast enough. You will hear a high pitched whine at the front bottom of the washer if this is bad. To reset the washer from the F02 error, select pause/cancel twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or dissconnect power. good luck
