If memory serves me correctly this is a main control board error. To find out for sure, Remove the lower front panel of the washer. (the 1/4" screws are across the bottom) Just inside that panel is a tech manual. Skip to the error code section. For an F01, the steps should be unplugging it for 2 1/2 minutes (to reset the main circuit board). I would also pop the top cover (the 1/4" screws are in the back side of the top panel) and check for any
loose connections on your main circuit board ( front top, right hand corner) WARNING - Circuit boards are delicate and an static shock could ruin them. Ground yourself (always keep one hand touching the frame of the machine) before touching the connections. Also try following the black hose on the top, right hand side towards the rear. It goes to your pressure switch (round cylinder 2 1/2 - 3" wide). Give it a firm tap with something insulated (the handle of your screw driver for instance). If the switch gets stuck it can cause a false f01 error code.If all steps fail, you can contact a local servicer. I only suggest this because I have found there are other things (not printed in the tech manual) that will give a false f01 error code. MAKE SURE THEY PROVIDE A WARRANTY FOR THIER WORK! If you would like to replace the board yourself, they can be obtained from the local appliance parts supply stores or online from the manufacture.

I have a Kenmore HE2T error code F24

The "F24" error code is a heat sensor error code. The following link explains the error code in detail and the steps to correct it:

In many cases, the connector plug on the NTC sensor wiggles loose and causes the error code. Check the NTC connection first to make sure it is tight and making good contact. This may save you a service call and/or replacement parts. Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing anything inside the unit.

A replacement NTC module (if required) can be purchased at for about $10. Refer to the parts illustrations under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Each washer comes with a technical data sheet located inside the cabinet. You will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to access it. If it is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all troubleshooting tips, wiring diagrams and fault codes with explanations.

Kenmore HE2t washer - error code 5d

5d is a definitely a the code for a plugged discharge. We removed the lower access panel and discovered a virtual treasure: $12.50 in quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies, a pen, a pencil, collar stays, 10 bobby-pins, 3 barrettes, a elastic headband, a draw string, a box cutter, 3 washers, 3 broken zipper parts, a elastic waist band. Amazing it took all to trigger a 5d error code. Hope this helps!
