Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The washer starts beeping and an "F" is displayed in the window. When I push pause, it resets to a new time which varies and then finishes the load, any ideas what the F stands for?

    Yes, I will try the suggestions offered, I don't have the owner's manual because this was my sister's washer and dryer.

Only F is not a valid error code, but just general failure.

That means that the error is probably caused by a faulty control board or by a contact inside the dryer.

Try cutting power from circuit breaker, or unplugging power cord, wait fifteen minutes and connect back.

If you still get the problem, then ring the number listed on the owner manual.

Note if instead of F you get PF from time to time, that means that the power cord, or the AC outlet is bad. If instead the error is E1, then the thermistor is bad or there is an heating problem.

My front load washer goes into pause two min after machine is started i have to press start for cycle to continue and sometimes it does it a second time press start again it will then finish cycle


you should check button start / pause the washing machine, if it is damaged you must replace it with a new one, the damage caused by the push button which is not connected properly.

Is there a reset button for my Whirlpool Cabrio Washer? Every time I start a load of laundry to wash, the washer puts the cycle on pause at least 5 times. I have to hit start, wait for it to beep, hit...


Check the lid switch and its actuator on the lid. The pause you're getting is likely an open lid sensed by the washer control. Also try to push and pull the inner tub up and down a few times - if I remember correctly these washers have a floating basket, which engages the gears when there is enough weight inside. If there is not enough clothes it may not wash correctly (I don't remember exactly, but try it anyway, what do you have to loose? ;) ).

My washer had 1 minute left before the spin cycle was complete.


Push and hold the START button for three seconds if you want it to finish off that last minute.

...or...

Push and hold the PAUSE button for three seconds to stop the cycle.

Peace.

If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are
turned off and “F/02” is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two
times to clear the display.
NOTE: After four minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed,
then four minutes later the “F/02” error code will be
displayed.



Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make
sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

Try pushing the skip button this may reset the prog. These machines will beep to indicate a fault. Dependant on how many times the machine beeps b4 it pauses ie 1 beep then a pause would indicate the machine isn't filling, 2 beeps its not pumping out, 4 beeps doors open. Hope this helps

Trying unplugging for 20 minutes maybe you can reset it.
