Sounds like you have a dead short to ground. Check the power cable & look for any rubbed through insulation & make sure the ground is still attached to it's post.

Kenmore dryer model 11087531701 powers on but will not start. Sends code f-01. What does this code mean? How can we fix this?


The 110.87531701 dryer was manufactured by Whirlpool for the Kenmore label. For Whirlpool dryers, the F-01 code indicates an internal of the main electronic control board (the brain of the dryer). Try unplugging the dryer (or turning it off at the circuit breaker). Wait a while, then plug in the power cord. If the dryer now works, you may have had an electrical surge that needed to be dissipated.

Otherwise, the recommended repair is replacing the control board. Make sure to unplug the dryer before opening the back panel to access the control board. Move one wire at a time from the old board to the same place on the new board. If you have a gentle touch and soldering skills, some have repaired the board by finding the faulty solder joint and fixing it. However, you need to make sure that you remove and replace the wires with care.

See https://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts/a8b6d876505/Model-11087531701-Kenmore-Dryer-Parts or http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/11087531701/0582/0151200.html?searchType=modelSearch&q=110.87531701&searchTerm=110.87531701 for a parts list. The control board is part 46 on the cabinet parts diagram at Sears Parts Direct.

I hope this helps.

On Whirlpool duet steam front loading DRYER...What does the error code F70 mean?Do you have to have a certified whirlpool appliance service professional to repair?


F70 code says...
Replace the machine control electronics. You should first unplug the machine and then remove and plug back in all connectors on the front panel model as well as the electronic control module.

If that doesn't take care of the problem then it may be time to consider replacing the rear board. The FSP # 8183259

The control board is part # 14 in the link below.

What does F70 mean on a front load dryer?


Hello Carol;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

F70:

No communication between the electronic control board and the user interface control board assemblies.

Unplug the dryer. Check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the user interface control board assemblies. If the connections are sound, have a technician diagnose the cause of the communication failure. The main electronic control board and/or the user interface control assemblies might need to be replaced.

Whirlpool dyer will not work, have replaced the board but


Sounds like the control panel may be dead. If you cannot get any lights to come on at all on the front panel, its probably a goner. You can check the voltage coming out of the control pc board via the schematic inside the dryer panel. I have this same exact problem. I replaced the control board 3 times because the panel seems fine if i plug it into an external power supply but will not work when plugged into my dryer. I have my jumpered and running off of a circuit breaker. I have checked every part in the entire unit. That was over 2 years ago. I still need to get a control panel and see if it fixes mine but after dropping $130 on the control board, i feel i could buy another dryer with the $200 they want for the control panel. Also this dryer seems to streak my clothes with brown or rust colored spots. The dryer is spotless inside. I even took off the rubber seal because i thought the glue is what was possibly doing it when it heated up but that didn't help either....This dryer sucks.

Dryer has power, dim control leds, will not run most of the time.


Same problem here. I replaced the machine control electronics p/n 8546219 and got 12 months service out of it before it returned to what you are describing above. I even replaced all the LED's on the board and that did not do a thing. I can tell you that this will be the last whirlpool appliance that will ever enter my home. Simply overpriced garbage!

Whirlpool duet electric dryer, not getting any power


Mine shows a faint light behind the control locked indicator and the timer is dimly lit on the two middle horizontal bars (middle of the eights). They go off by pushing various button combos. If I unplug it for a week I can get the control to work for a few minutes.

I replaced the control board, it worked for 5 minutes, then back to nothing. I want to replace the interface but would rather not waste any more money.

I dont want to check every wire for continuity. If someone has fixed this problem, please let me know.
