Kenmore Elite HE5t Power and Errors

Hi experts! We have the "latest and greatest" washing machine which has worked wonderfully for the last 10 months until we got a F2 error message; then a F10 error message. Now, machine will not even power up although when we push the START button, it beeps. Nothing lights up now... just the little chirping beeps. Hubby unplugged, checked breaker box, checked filter after opening bottom, front kickplate. All looks well. Actually, everything behind that kickplate looked quite clean too.

It takes FOREVER to have a Sears tech to come out. Any suggestions? Hubby is very handy but not familiar with the new designs.

Thank YOU so much for your help!

    Motor Control Unit (MCU) Heat Sink Thermal Trip

    If the thermal protector on the MCU heat sink gets too hot, it will open the thermal

    protector on the heat sink which will stop motor functions and an “F/10” will be

    displayed.

    Potential Causes

    • Check for Proper Installation, verify the unit is not located near a source of heat

    and has proper ventilation.

    • Check Wire Harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control

    Unit (CCU)

    • Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components

    • Check MCU

    • Check Motor

Unfortunately you spent money unnecessarily, and before making any additional errors; it would be best to have a trained technician with knowledge of the washer, service the system.

Hi After a year of using my Kenmore Elite HE5T washing machine, Model #110 47789701, serial #CSW2733428 I am getting an error F35 and Sub. Could you please let me know how to fix it? Thanks Barb


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F35 error means that there is some sort of issue with the steamer electronic board and analog pressure sensor has gone bad. Check that the hose is firmly attached with the washer and is not blocked. You can also check the water level pressure switch operation. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I plug it in and it won`t turn on


A faulty door switch can cause this, You can test it with an ohmmeter. A faulty control panel can also cause this. Also a faulty fuse or power supply which can be tested with a voltmeter to make sure it is getting power.

this looks like a classic whirlpool control board issue. fault is a communication error between board and panel. check connections.
