DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR

If the control is unable to properly detect motor speed, the machine shuts down.
If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door unlocks after 3 Minutes.

Possible Causes/Procedure

1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and the power cord are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check drive motor tachometer resistance. It should be approx. 115 ohms.
4. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.

Generally if everything checks good, you'll want to replace the MCU because it's not reading the motor correctly.####

-Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer.
-Are faucets completely turned on?
-Are screens at inlet hose connection clogged?

My washing machine keeps displaying error code F17 and won't go on. Does anyone know what this means and what I can do to fix it?


F17 indicates no water coming into the condensing chamber during drying.


Unplug the appliance.

Take the top off.


Check to see if the condensing chamber below the heating chamber is blocked.

What does a flashing code HF mean? This is a kenmore elite HE3t washer. thanks


That is the code for a water inlet issue.  Meaning "no or insufficient water supply" according to the manual. It says to hit PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel cycle. Then unplug unit and check for:
Are faucets completely turned on? Are screens at the inlet hose connection to washer clogged? Are inlet hoses kinked? And last...Are inlet hoses frozen? After checking all those it says to plug back in, re-select cycle and press START. If problem still comes up call for service. I remember on another site someone had the same code coming up, all the inlet suggestions checked out OK and they had to call for service as it was something in the control panel/computer of the unit.
Hope your issue is something simple as suggested by the manual. Take care ; )
