SOURCE: f24 error code

Take off the lower panel of your washer and under this panel on the back of panel is a book which tells you what the error codes are and how to fix them or test for them. It looks like a tempature sensor code to me.

SOURCE: Error code F24

I see the same problem and now that I know it's a water temp sensor, I really don't have a problem. Living in Houston it get's so hot the cold water is hot coming through the pipes. I didn't have this error 24 until summer...

SOURCE: error code f24

F24 indicates a water temperature sensor error. If during the wash cycle in the water-heating step, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range the F24 error code will display.

Possible causes:

  • Too cold of water or hot water is turned off
  • Temperature sensor failure or loose connection
  • Control board failure

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore HE2T error code F24

The "F24" error code is a heat sensor error code. The following link explains the error code in detail and the steps to correct it:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1976126-f24_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

In many cases, the connector plug on the NTC sensor wiggles loose and causes the error code. Check the NTC connection first to make sure it is tight and making good contact. This may save you a service call and/or replacement parts. Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing anything inside the unit.

A replacement NTC module (if required) can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com for about $10. Refer to the parts illustrations under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading.

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

NOTE: Each washer comes with a technical data sheet located inside the cabinet. You will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to access it. If it is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all troubleshooting tips, wiring diagrams and fault codes with explanations.

SOURCE: Does anyone know where the water temperature

This advice is for Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “F24” Error Code. Some of the error codes on these model washers can be erroneous, however. The first step in troubleshooting any error code is to simply unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" of the washing machine. If the error code reappears following a CCU reset, then you have a genuine problem.

"F24" is an indication of a water temperature sensor (NTC) error, or Heating Circuit failure. Check the Water Temperature Sensor and check connections to the Water Temperature Sensor.

To access, you will have to UNPLUG your washer and remove the lower access panel under the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: If you place a 2 x 4 under the front feet of the washer, it will make access to the screws much easier. If the panel sticks, a tap on the sides will knock it free. The panel will drop down then come off. The sensor (NTC) is located at the base of the wash tub in the front on the heating element. This will be a small square shaped plug between the heating element terminals. Make sure this plug is secure and not loose or unplugged. It is common for the connector plug to come loose due to vibration. If the plug is intact, check the contacts for corrosion. If everything appears as it should, then unplug the wire harness and take a resistance check. Readings will be as follows:

Temperature Meter Reading
32°F (0°C) 35.9 K ohms
86°F (30°C) 9.7 K ohms
104°F (40°C) 6.6 K ohms
122°F (50°C) 4.6 K ohms
140°F (60°C) 3.2 K ohms
158°F (70°C) 2.3 K ohms
203°F (95°C) 1 K ohms

Roughly...around 9K ohms at room temperature if I'm reading the chart correctly. Take readings as listed and also double check the connector to make sure it is not oxidized. Try cleaning the plug and reconnecting to see if the error code goes away. If not, you will probably have to replace the sensor. If the sensor checks good, take a reading across the heating element terminals. It should indicate about 15 ohms.

Lastly, remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws holding the panel in place in the rear. Once the screws are removed, slide the panel back then off. Locate the Central Control Unit (CCU) directly behind the wash tub. Take a resistance check at the Heating Element Solenoid by removing connector 9 from the CCU (this is the second connector from the RIGHT as facing from the front). A reading across test points 1 & 2 should also read 15 ohms.

Error code f24


Hi

F24 is a water temperature sensor error. You have to unplug the washer and check the water temperature sensor and its connections, if that is fine then check the resistance of the heating element and the part that is bad should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have an F 24 error flashing. It is on the rinse spin cycle


The "F24" error code is an indication of a water temperature sensor error. There is a chance that there is a loose wire connection on the water temperature sensor. The temperature sensor (key#24) is located at the rear bottom of the tub. (See images below)

You can gain access to the temperature sensor by removing the rear washer panel. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel

Getting an f-24 code, saw the solution page but it doesn't describe where the part is located or how to replace it. I am wondering if there is a way to reset the machine by unplugging or a reset button...


Hi, F24 error code a water temperature sensor error or enought hot water to the washer.
check to see you have both valves are turned on. Also, the water inlet valve on the washer has a screen and it is known to get clogged and restrict water flow. Turn off the hot water valve. Pull the hot water hose off where it attaches to the back of the washer.
Even if you are getting good hot water flow, inadequate water temperature can cause an F24 error code. Check the temperature setting on your hot water heater. It should be set at 120 F. You should reach this hot water temperature at your washer within about 1 minute.
If you are getting a good hot water flow, you may one of the following failures:
1 loose or dirty connection at the temperature sensor or control board.
2 The temperature sensor could be out of range. Bad or shorted sensor
3 Control board failure.

The temperature sensor should have a resistance reading of 6.6k ohms at 104 degrees F and should drop in Ohms as temperature rises,
The temperature sensor is located at the back lower section of the tub with 2 small black wires. It would require a ohm meter to measure the resistance of the sensor.

HE2-plus washer will not start. error, status light shows "F-24"


code F24
WATER TEMPERATURE SENSOR ERROR

sorry but the following information is for TECHNITION SERVICE(only)
If the water temperature sensor NTC value is out of range (23 F to 217 F to 103F C) during the water-heating step of the WASHcycle.
NOTE:To find corrrect Ohm reading refer to the water temperature sensor in TECHNICION ONLY section.
Possible couse/Procedure
1.- Unplug washer or disconect power.
2.*check the water senser and conection to it.
3.-check resistence of heating element, if present on this model(abnormal=indifinity)
4.-refer to the water Temperature Sensor section

F24 comes on. Just won't work. I have tried turning off power.


The F24 error code indicates a problem with the water temperature sensor. The technical explanation for this code is provided in the first image below. The location of the temperature sensor is shown in the second image. The temperature sensor is Key 24. The third image provides the testing procedure for this component. To access the temperature sensor, unplug the washer and remove the back panel. Unplug the wire harness connection to the sensor and check the resistance with a volt/ohm meter. If the sensor is apparently bad, it will need to be replaced. You can order a new temperature sensor from the Sears PartsDirect website www.searspartsdirect.com . The part number is 8181705. If the thermistor tests good, you could have a water fill problem, a wire harness connection issue or a failed control board that would cause this error code. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your washer.
