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.

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

F4e1 error


You can try resetting unit by disconnecting it from the outlet or by switching off the designated circuit breaker for 2 or 3 minutes, then restore power. If the reset doesn't work, I think you need to call a technician to properly diagnose

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.

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!

I didn't use the stove at all the day before i woke up the next day and the stove has a code on it F4E1 what does this mean and how do i fix it my stove is a kitchenaid superba glass top


Short circuit detected; oven temperature sensor. Check sensor for normal room temperature resistance (1085-1097 ohms at 75 degrees F). Check wires between electronic range control (also called clock or ERC) and sensor.

VOTE FOR ME IF THIS HELPED.

Replace sensor if other components check normal. Replace electronic range control (also called clock or ERC) if fail code reoccurs
