Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have an H2T Kenmore front load washer (3years old) It will not spin and the F1 code comes up. Sears repair came and told me it needed a new CCU board. Came back a week later with the CCU board and it did not fix the problem. He said he thought it might be the pump and he would be back with a new pump to try it. He said he was leaving the CCU board here in case he needed to try it again. I have a friend who has worked with electronic control boards for years and said they have to be handled with extreme care. This brand new CCU board was left laying on my laundry counter, then on top of my dryer and now it is sitting in a box on top of the dryer and it is not in an anti-static bag. It is my understanding that it should always be in an anti-static bag until it is placed in the machine. Is this correct and is there a possibility that this unit could be damaged now. Thanks for your help. Model number 110.4756

The F1 code is for the CCU board and as with all circuit boards should be handled carefully.

There are a few other things that could be causing the F1 error.

Check to insure the outlet the washer is plugged into is properly grounded with an outlet tester, and that the polarity and voltage supplied are correct. If you do not have a tester, or are unfamiliar with
testing your outlet, I recommend getting an electrician to test this.

Your repair technician can also check the pressure switch hose to insure it isn't kinked or restricted
in any way.

You can always request to have a different technician sent out.

Kenmore elite E3t F11 error code

The "F11" fault code will display if the Motor Control Unit (MCU) has an internal failure; repeating under or over voltage, or over current conditions. If failure occurs during high speed spin the door unlocks after 3 minutes. The MCU (Motor Control Unit) is located beside the motor. See images below. Key #13 is the CCU and key #1 is the MCU.

The CCU (Central Control Unit) is located under the top along the side panel.

I recommend checking for loose wire connections at the MCU, CCU and motor. If you do not get any motor action at all, the MCU has likely failed.NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the top and lower access panel. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer.

Parts can be looked up and ordered at Sears PartsDirect

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:Sears Home Services .

My Kenmore H2t front load washer won't drain and

Hallo there
So it will not do what it is told. This happened to my Candy machine the other day. It was finished and I opened the door, out came water and I got 5 towels on the floor to dry up the water. Closed the door again and put empty water on, it emptied the water, stopped the machine and put spin on and it made it.
My experience ,learned the hard way, to wait long enough after the machine stops as well as between changing programs.
I this will be of some use to you.

Kenmore elite flashes f1 code and stops

If I remember correctly? It is stopping after the wash cycle and won't spin? If this is correct you need a new pump. I found out that front load washers have a filter that is behind that front cover and it needs to be cleaned every 6 months or more often if you have lots of strange items that show up in the wash like coins or toys or if you have lots of furry pets. Mine did that with out the code and I replaced the pump and check the drain every 6 months or so. I was told a good indicator that the drain filter is getting clogged is when your washer has an odor. Just a rule of thumb.

Inconsistent spin?

This type of issue may also be related the the water level switch. If the water level switch fails it can cause the washer to only spin slowly because the CCU thinks there is too much water in the machine.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Clanking noise during spin cycle

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.
