The door switch sensor button may be sticking in the closed (pushed in) position. Try to get it to spring back out. Otherwise the washer computer "thinks" that the door has not been opened for three cycles (F26).

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand you have a He5t Kenmore washer with the pressure switch "no longer made"...yes this has been a problem I know...they've revised the componets and aren't compatable...what they were thinking I don't know !

If you act fast you might get one, I checked at the link below and they claim to have one. Good luck.

I have a kenmore elite HE3t and it reading error F26. What does this mean?


"F26" is a door switch error. This error will occur when the door has not be opened for three consecutive wash cycles. Or, if the door switch remains open for more than 5 seconds while the door is locked. This could be an erroneous error, however. The first step in troubleshooting any error code is to press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear, and attempt to restart. If the error code remains, UNPLUG the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit. In many cases a simple CCU reset will correct any momentary glitches or erroneous errors. If the error returns following a CCU reset, a legitimate error condition exists and must be corrected in order to return the appliance to normal operation.


NOTE: For more specific information and troubleshooting advice on how to remedy most problems, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside the cabinet. Refer to the technical data sheet for detailed troubleshooting tips. To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access (a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.


The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.


If you determine the door latch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

Replacements parts (if required) can be purchased from any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

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

My Kenmore Elite he5t steam washer gets F35 error code


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Kenmore elite he 5t the code f21 comes on, the hose is ok.


This is a Long Drain Issue. Likely that something is stuck in the pump trap. Take off the mottom tree screws under the drum panel. This will remove the drum panel on the front. From under neither you can see the drain pipe trap. Unscrew the trap cap in the from. Clean out all debris and re-install. this should do it.
