Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call

SOURCE: Iget a f-11 trouble code on my kenmore elite he4t washer.

REplace your MCU. The MCU is the Drive Motor Control board and is located in the rear of the washer adjacent to the Drive Motor on the left-hand side (facing from the rear with the back panel removed). The wiring harness can also cause the error, but it is not as common a problem. Go onto kenmore.com and find your right washing machine and replace the part yourself. First try and take the wiring harness off and then reconnect it and see if the error code goes away if it doesnt then replace the part. Please Rate. Thank you

SOURCE: kenmore elite calypso wash motion top loader won t

Unplug the unit and let it sit unplugged for 30 minutes. There is a power filter on the AC input line and sometimes power surges can cause it to need to bleed off the voltage from capacitors. There is a test procedure to see if the filter needs to be replaced but so far every time this has happened to our Calpyso, we pull the plug for a bit and the washer recovers.

There isn't enough space on this text box to post the removal & replacement procedure for the line filter, but you can find it at www.pcappliancerepair.com and look up the part # on the Sears Parts Direct site for your model # specifically.

SOURCE: MY KENMORE ELITE WASHER WON'T DRAIN.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Had a power outage in my neighborhood. Now the washer doesn't work. Is there a reset button or something else I can check myself?


Unplug it and let it set for at least 30 min. There is a power filter atatched to the incoming lines on these and this will sometimes let the capacitors reset. If this does not work then the filter will probably need changed out.
There isn't enough space on this text box to post the removal & replacement procedure for the line filter, but you can find it at www.pcappliancerepair.com and look up the part # on the Sears Parts Direct site for your model # specifically.

My Kenmore Elite HE 4t has a bulb illuminated on the front panel. The bulb is the "Control Locked" bulb and the washer does not work! Please help. I have tried unplugging it for awhile.


The reset or cancel button does not control the locking feature. Unplugging the appliance also will not reset it. The following link explains how to correct a control panel lock issue on a Kenmore Elite:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2469429-kenmore_elite_amp_whirlpool_duet

The control panel lock is actually a designed safety feature that allows you to lock the control panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls. It can be inadvertently set by leaning against the control panel buttons, or following a power outage.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
