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: Kenmore Elite He5t Washer Error F24

If it is not the plug at the bottom is ok and the temp. sensor is ok.Check the plug on the CCU on top mine was not even plugged in. When I plugged it in the washer started working. You have to take the top off to get to it,but it is easy. Three screws on the back top and the top will slide off easily. There is a troubleshooting manual in the front bottom panel on right side of panel. Page 10 troubleshoots the temp. sensor. The book gives you all the troubleshooting codes. The front panel comes off easily by unscrewing three screws on the very bottom of the panel.

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.

What does error code F 24 mean on a whirlpool clothes washer duet front load


The "F24" fault code indicates a water temperature sensor error. The temperature sensor could be faulty; the wire connection may have vibrated loose or off the sensor or a possible heater or control board failure.

I have Whirlpool model WFW9200SQA and I am getting error code F24. I found instructions here regarding some resistance measurements I can make to troubleshoot, but I would like a little more clarification.


Hello,

The F24 error code as you have gathered on here refers to the temperature sensor is out of range and must be checked.To access the temp. sensor ya need to remove the lower panel below the door and check the temp. sensor by removing the wire plug to it and measure the sensor to be between 8.8K &9.2K (8.800-9,200 omhs) at room temp.

of the WASH cycle.
NOTE: To find correct Ohm reading refer to the Water Temperature Sensor section.

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check the water temperature sensor and connection to it.
3. Check resistance of heating element, if present on this model. (abnormal = infinity)
4. Refer to the Water Temperature Sensor section.

When i try to wash a laod of clothes it keeps putting up a f24 and wont do anything


Hi



Error F24 means water temperature sensor error. If the sensor reading is not within range then this error comes up. Check whether the sensor is not disconnected, if it is then connect it and check if the error is still there. If error doesn't go then you'll need to replace the temperature sensor.
Please check part#24, temperature sensor in the diagram--

Please post back for any further assistance.

My kenmore he frnt load washer has an error code of (f24). tried the manual solution no luck. can you help me?


On this model of HE washer, the F24 code indicates that the water temperature sensor is out of range (23 degrees to 217 degrees F). This usually indicates a bad thermistor (temperature sensor - Key 24 in the image below). A bad wiring connection or a failed control board could also cause this problem.

Good luck

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.

    Fault F24 on kenmore front load washer


    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. .
