Kenmore HE 2Plus Clothes Washer F01 Code

My wife unlocked the Front loading washer the other day because it only had a minute or two left on the cycle and she wanted to put the clothes in the dryer. Nothing abnormal. The next morning, when she went to start a new load, she got F01 code. The door won't lock, nothing happens at all. I've read your forum and it's pretty frustrating to see the problems others have had too. The washer is Model 110.47532602, purchase April 2007.
I am VERY handy whether it be electrical or mechanical so anything you can tell me to fix this would be appreciated. I just can't believe a Sears repair guy has to fix this. I also can't believe my wife broke this by pushing the Stop button. Just doesn't make any sense.

Thanks,

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

Testimonial: "this seems like helpful advice on the surface, but after looking up the error code I'm receiving it is something to do with the motor rotor sensor..."

Let it run through its cycle. At the end take 1/4 of the clothing out put it aside in a hamper. re run load with some of the clothes taken out. Then washer the other clothes afterwards.

Clothes have a musty smell if left in the washer


Make shure to do a cleaning cycle. As well, wipe out the inside, the rubber gasket and the door when done washing for the day. We also have found that
leaving the door "Open" for several hours, when finnished, eliminates any future
smells.

Clothes smell.


Mold, mildew and other fun things use washers as a breeding ground. Clean your machine with a generous amount of white vinegar run through a cycle. Or there is a product called Affresh you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot.
