Hello David. There are two possibilities here.

The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

The timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

The cl code is the latch code under normal operation of the dishwasher. In some cases when the door latch is good and isnot faulty which commonly is; The micro processor starts to fail and the unit thinks the door is open but just continues to run. That is when you need a new circuit board

    if pressing the cancel button doesn't get rid of the power failure error "PF" then you have a bad control board. So you will need to replace the control board itself.

    Press and hold the Clear/Off button for three seconds . A beep wil sound and Door Loc will flash until the door unlocks


    "PF" indicates the electronic control detected a Power Failure.
    This could have been caused a brief power outage OR may be an indication that the connections at the plug are loose

    Check the lid switch. Check the thermal fuse. Check power from power inverter to main control board.

    PF error indicates power failure which means that the control has failed and should be replaced.

Kenmore he4t washer codes


The control for the washer likely detected a problem. The failure code will not be displayed on all models of washers. You can recall the error code by using this procedure:

  1. Select the "Drain/Spin" cycle.
  2. Select No Spin.
  3. Press the "Prewash" options and hold this button for 5 seconds.
  • Immediately after those 5 seconds the last stored failure code is displayed for 4 seconds.
  • After those 4 seconds the display switches automatically back to the selection mode
NOTE: If your washer does not have the Pre-Wash option. Then use the 2nd Rinse button (called Extra Rinse). The failure code should stay in the memory so that it can be recalled as often as necessary and as long as it is the youngest failure Code.
