Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The machine has a diagnostic provision that displays an error code when a fault is detected. Run a diagnostic test if no fault code is displayed to determine at which part of the test the fault appears and pinpoint what the problem is. Start running the diagnostic test by closing the door then pressing the Control On button if present on your machine. Select the Drain/Spin cycle then press the Prewash Option button four times and C:00 will light up on the display to indicate that the diagnostic test has been started successfully. Use the Rinse Hold button if the Prewash Option is not present on your model. Press Pause/Cancel if starting the diagnostic test fails then restart it.
Press Prewash Option button two times to advance to the next step of the diagnostic test. Refer to the table below for the steps description and the parts that are being checked.
Post back the diagnostic test results and indicate the fault code if there are any. You don't have to accept or rate this solution in order to post comments or information.
