This is an error that means the controller is not talking to the motor. You need to check the connections on the motor

    All of the wires look tight on the motor and the pump. Any other ideas?

  • Brad Brown Feb 13, 2014

    That was the hopeful easy fix, the only answer now is to replace the motor controller.

My kenmore dishwasher not working code f4e1 came on


I checked the searspartsdirect.com website, and according to them, it is a 'motor communication issue.' In order to get more details, you have to create a login, and it was taking forever to complete that, so I gave up.

Try flipping the circuit breaker, leave it off for 1 minute, then turn it on again. Do you still get the error code?

Okay, I finally completed the sign-up process. Here is some more info from an actual repair technician:

The F4E1 is a code that signifies a WASH MOTOR
issue. Specifically, no Communication. This is usually caused by: A loose connection in Wash Motor Circuit, Motor Communication Circuit and/or an open wash motor. 1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 2. Check all connections in Wash/Rinse Circuit and Motor Communications Circuit with meter. Fix/replace an open connection/part. Motor fuse on control open. 1. Start Service Diagnostics Cycle using keypad and advance through the error code intervals to interval 19. ( shown on image below ) 2. Listen for 2 relay contact clicks at the start of interval 19 (to confirm both the pilot and motor relays are turning on.

NOTE : These relays provide power to the motor, but the motor does not start until it receives a start command later in the cycle). If hear only 1 or zero clicks and wash motor does not come on later in service cycle, and there were no loose wire communication wire connection when checked above, then unplug dishwasher or disconnect power and replace control.

Faulty wash motor. 1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 2. Use inspection mirror to inspect for water leakage and/or overheating on the wash motor. If evidence of overheating exists, replace wash motor. If evidence of moisture exists, check seals and hoses.f you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.

Dishwasher code F4E1


The F4E1 is a code that signifies a WASH MOTOR issue. Specifically, no Communication. This is usually caused by:
A loose connection in Wash Motor Circuit, Motor Communication Circuit and/or an open wash motor.
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Check all connections in Wash/Rinse Circuit and Motor Communications Circuit. Fix/replace an open connection/part. Motor fuse on control open.

Using keypad press "Heated Dry", "Normal Wash", Heated Dry", Normal Wash, and the "cancel button" to reset.
Start a cycle and listen for 2 relay contact clicks at the start of interval to confirm both the pilot and motor relays are turning on.
These relays provide power to the motor, but the motor does not start until it receives a start command later in the cycle). If hear only 1 or zero clicks and wash motor does not come on later in service cycle, and there were no loose wire communication wire connection when checked above, then unplug dishwasher or disconnect power and replace control.

CODE F4E1 will not go away


This error means that the controller cannot communicate with the motor. It is possible that something came loose when you replaced the clamp. Recheck all the connections .

Kenmore elite dishwasher has an error code f4e1


I had the F4E1 code on my Kenmore Elite 665x. This means a water leak. I eventually pulled the machine from the cabinet and noticed some water beneath the machine and the water pump hose loose. I reattached the pump hose using a new hose clamp and zip tied the pump in place to keep it from happening again. Afterwards I had to reset the machine by pushing the smart wash pots and pan then normal wash in sequential order 3 times then shut the door. The machine then does a diagnostic test. After the test I pushed the cancel button and it was ready to go.
Hope this helps someone else!

Hi, my blaupunkt radio is displaying wait 1 hr, cant shift it. any solutions please.


WAIT 1 HR means wrong codes have been entered previously

To restore, leave SWITCHED ON ..UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself

In this case it should be 1 hour

Make sure you have the correct code
