It sounds like the user interface board has stalled. Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the memory in order eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch. Post back the complete and exact model number of the machine for further troubleshooting. The model number indicated doesn't appear to be in existence. There used to be a 3-digit code before the 8-digit actual model number.

    Return it and ask for the correct one. You should give them the exact model number of the machine.

    Coud you please help me...what would ne an error code F 21 for Kenmore frontload washer?


    "F21" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


    1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
    2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
    3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
    4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.


    If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

    Kenmore ELITE HE 5t 47086 frontload errror code F70


    The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

    If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


    Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


    F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

    I have a Kenmore frontloader washer HE2Plus that says error code


    "F20" is a No Water Detect error. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed. This can be a potential problem with the following:


    If you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:

    - Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
    - Make sure water taps are on.
    - Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

    If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, check the following:

    - Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions:


    http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

    - Verify Drain Pump operation.
    - Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.
    - Verify wire harness connections at the pressure switch, inlet valves, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).

    To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. Click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

    To access the Pressure Switch - remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a plastic air hose attached. Verify the electrical connections are intact, and the air hose is attached and not cracked or leaking.

    To access the Central Control Unit (CCU) - with the top panel of the washer removed, the CCU is located directly behind, and just above the rear of the wash tub. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the lower panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics and to verify the wire connections at the CCU. In addition, the tech sheet will also assist in how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

    On my Kenmore frontload washing machine, we are getting a DL error?


    On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

    You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

    If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.
