I have been chasing this issue for several months. I am on my third Computer (CCU). I buy a new computer and it only lasts a month. This latest coputer only lasted a week.
An interesting thing occured to me, every time I played with the wiring on the washer, it would work for two or three loads, then my F-28 error would come back.
F-28 is a communication error. There are two computers in the washer. Central Computer and motor controller computer. There is a serial bus between them (3 wire connector on the top of the CCU with a blue stripe). From my research, I discovered that these washers have a corrosion problem. The data communication wires are susceptable to this.
One thing I noticed was that my washer seems to always quit when starting the spin cycle when the washer is really shaking.
Here's the solution:
Find that 3 wire connector and clean the contacts on both sides of the wire harness (CCU and MCU sides). This can be accomplished by running some light sandpaper between the contacts. You should also do this to the wires going to the motor sensor on the back of the motor. This solved my problem. I figure I will probably need to go in and repeat this every year or so.
I also found this awesome troubleshooting guide. It has A LOT of great information

My washer say f28 it is a kenmore HE2 plus


Hi,


"F28" means your washer is locked and not unlocking. To unlock your washer take the bottom access panel off by removing the 3 bottom screws.Reach up near the latching assembly & attached to the door latch is a little plastic pull lever. Pull down on this lever and open the door. Unplug your washer for 60 seconds and plug your washer back in. If the error re-occurs you need to replace your door lock.

Thank you!!

I washed a large load in our Whirlpood Duet Washing Machine and it stopped with a flashing F28 code. I unplugged it for 5 minutes and it still will not run a cycle without stopping with a flashing F28...


The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.
Motor Control Unit (8540135)
Microcomputer Machine Control Unit (8540788)
It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for error code F28

If you find either the MCU or the CCU(Microcomputer Machine Control Unit) fixed it.

You can download the online repair manual in the below link

On page# 4-20 it shows how to access your MCU.

What does trouble code f28 mean


f-28 was flashing on my washer for the longest time, first i had read that my heating element had gone out which was false, my washer still produced the steam and heat prior to error code f-28 then shutting down.The 2nd thing i read was F-28 meant the locking switch on the door was going bad which again was false, my washer would lock and unlock allowing me to feed more clothes. So i took it upon myself to remove the lower cover clean and was my RINSE filter which at that time I discovered the DRAIN tube was pushed against my wall not allowing enough water to flow out on my washers RINSE & SPIN cycle.

If you have this problem I would recommend following your service guide to trouble shoot the RINSE FILTER & DRAIN PIPE. The washer motor spins so fast that the washer itself need to drain the water out 10X's faster then a regular standard washer!

Hope this helps cause it did for me and saved my wife and I alot of money in repairs!

It gives a F28 code. What is that?


F28 is a motor controller error... Try unplugging the machine for a minute or two, then starting it again. If no good, you can remove the access cover and check the connections to the motor... BE SURE TO UNPLUG FROM WALL FIRST...

Peace,

ERROR CODE F28


Unplug the machine at the mains. Remove the detergent tray. Reach all the way back with your hand in the slot where the detergent tray normally fits and feel for a lever. When you find it pull it forward. Then replace the detergent tray. Plug the machine back on and the error code will have reset and the machine will be useable again.
