"F05" 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 block of wood under each front foot 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. 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

    Any way to adjust the sensor to allow it to run at a lower hot water temperature?

Kenmore front load HE 4T error code 2F what does this mean?


Its been my experience this is related to the drain pump being plugged.
First, you need to take out as much water as you can. Empty the washer and then select drain with NO spin. It may help to drain water.
Second step, unplug your machine, and unscrew the front-bottom panel (there are three screws on the bottom, you need to go to the floor)
Third, there is a plastic cover for the draining pump. WARNING - There is still, water inside, so have plenty of towels handy!
Unscrew the plastic cover and there is a good chance you'll find the clog.

I have a Kenmore Elite front loading machine machine HE3 that keeps giving me an error code of F05. What does this mean? Obviously I've lost the manual


"F05" is a heat sensor error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r629462-f05_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Actually, none of the error codes are included with your owner's manual. They are, however, included in the technical data sheet which should be located behind the lower kick panel directly below the door.

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