    When I use the prewash option, I will get the F33 error code once the washer starts on it's wash cycle. If I turn it off and start the washer again and don't push the prewash button, it runs just fine.

Really need the whole model # ?

1 pressure switch
2 flowmeter
3 CCU
4 hose

he F33 means that the CCU has not received a signal to shut off the water which would be sent by the pressure switch, the flowmeter has signaled that the tub has received 10.5 gallons the CCU then shuts off the water and pumps the water out, giving the F33 error code.

We just had our HE 4t serviced for a f 33 error. Apparently, the drum was rubbing against an air hose that created a small pinhole, which caused the drum to keep filling with water. Luckily, our tech knew what to look for! The cost was about $120 to repair

SOURCE: error code f33 on an he4t

The F33 error code indicates a pump drive system error. If the pump ohms out correctly & the harness is secure I recommend replacing the CCU (central control unit).

The F33 code can indicate a bad pump or a problem with the wiring either at the pump or the CCU (central control unit), or the wiring harness itself. Before you replaced the pump, did you test the resistance in the wiring harness?

Unplug the washer and use an Ohmeter (VOM) to test. See http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wtftddqbdtwbdkrxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/tgdkbwkswxfddbwsbdbxtbgtgwftb/1/1303472/5961857/image49983img-or.gif for the schematics of the wiring for the pump on the CCU. To access the CCU, you need to remove a few screws on the back of the top panel. You remove the lower service panel on the front of the washer to access the pump. The wiring should read 12.3 ohms at the CCU. If you get a reading of infinity (open), check the pump. If the leads to the pump motor give a resistance of 12.3 ohms, then the wiring harness should probably be replaced. If the circuit to the pump is fine and the error persists, then the CCU is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with the specific model of your washer, I may be able to give additional suggestions.

F Code for the Kenmore Elite he4t Front Load Washer (3 years old)


Hi! ricksmith
What is the first three digits of the model number.
The he4t I have reference to does not have a "F" code error. Most of the codes are two digit, PF, F1 to F9 etc.
You could try: Pressing Pause/Cancel two times to clear code. As well as unplug for 20 seconds. Do you have power fluctuations in your area.
