If prvious owner has had no problems sounds like a good deal that is less that half new price no major issues most problems are customer instructs ..front loads are just catching on.. a lot of people don't fully understand them and with electronic controls they can be fickle..

Why does F20 come up and my washer stops? Washer is less than a year old

If the washer is less than a year old it is still under warranty. Call where you purchased it and it should be serviced for free.

F35 and Suds error on Kenmore Elite HE5t

I also got the SUDS error followed by F35 many times. I replaced the analog water level switch, Wirlpool part number W10156252, and the problem went away. The part is located against the back right corner of the top of the washer after removing the top cover. The part cost $62.99 + $12.95 express shipping from I have the Kenmore HE3t Steam Washer, model number 110.46752 700 front loader. I was able to run about 6 loads of laundry by unplugging the washer, waiting about 5 minutes, the re-plugging and re-starting the washer. Thereafter, the problem became permanent. I always used HE detergent. The washer was purchased new in December 2007, and the I made the repair in September 2009. I spent about $1300 for the Kenmore H3t Steam Washer, and I am disappointed that it required repair after less than 2 years. My mothers old Maytag washer lasted more than 15 years, and was not susceptible to soap SUDS.

Wirlpool Duet Sport Washer shows no indication of power

That happened to mine I had to replace the "brain" of the washer....the part was about $170. I think it is called the control panel.
There is a test you can run...look in the manual.

To buy or not to buy whirlpool duet sport washer

Hi there!

You have to ask yourself how much is the warranty worth to you. You normally have a 12 months warranty because if the machine is going to develop a fault, it will usually be in the first few months of use.
Saying that, some brands just don't last that long. The ones that do are expencive to buy in the first place.

So to answer your question, if you are getting it for half price of new, then yes I would go for it. If in the event something does go wrong, a repair will still be cheaper than a similar new unit, so you haven't lost out on the deal.

If this provides the info you need, Please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question))))
