Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
On the display the code "nF" come up and we no longer have our service manual
NF = No Fill Error
Check your hose inlet strainers.
Be sure they are free of contaminants.
Turn off the water supply - remove the hose.
On the side of the machine is a small metal strainer which catches debris in the water line.
Remove it using a small screwdriver and clean it.
Otherwise - your water valve is likely failed. (or the CCU not giving it the signal to open) so further testing will be required.
