Kenmore elite HE4t front load washer completly dead panel after error codes not ccu

Appearently these HE4t's have a history now of bad electronics controlling the machines funtions. Bad enough to prompt a possible class action suite against sears. Any real experence operational sequence techs want to respond to this. The electronic boards are Italian made for whirlpool.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

The symptoms are pretty specific for the F11 code on the Whirlpool Duet front loaders and clones (Kenmore Elite and KitchenAid):

If the washer starts to fill but the drum NEVER moves, your MCU is bad

If the washer runs through most of a cycle and then gives the F11 before (or during) a rinse or spin cycle, then you have the CCU relay problem.

If you are interested in having me repair your CCU for you, I offer that service on eBay (website coming soon). My username there is "jhagner"

Kenmore elite he4t f33


The F33 code can indicate a bad pump or a problem with the wiring either at the pump or the CCU (central control unit), or the wiring harness itself. Before you replaced the pump, did you test the resistance in the wiring harness?

Unplug the washer and use an Ohmeter (VOM) to test. See http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wtftddqbdtwbdkrxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/tgdkbwkswxfddbwsbdbxtbgtgwftb/1/1303472/5961857/image49983img-or.gif for the schematics of the wiring for the pump on the CCU. To access the CCU, you need to remove a few screws on the back of the top panel. You remove the lower service panel on the front of the washer to access the pump. The wiring should read 12.3 ohms at the CCU. If you get a reading of infinity (open), check the pump. If the leads to the pump motor give a resistance of 12.3 ohms, then the wiring harness should probably be replaced. If the circuit to the pump is fine and the error persists, then the CCU is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with the specific model of your washer, I may be able to give additional suggestions.

Washer won't unlock flashes f14.....Kenmore Elite HE4t


F14 for Kenmore (Whirlpool) machines means EEPROM Error.

The Central Control Unit (CCU) receives it's data from an EEPROM on board the CCU, if there is an error reading this data, it will cause this error.

A power glitch may cause this error. Try unplugging the Unit for two minutes to see if that fixes the error. Check CCU. So its likely you'll need a new CCU board.

Check your owners manual, some models have up to a 5 year parts warranty on that CCU.

HE4t Washer


"F06" is a Motor Speed error. The following link explains how to troubleshoot and some common causes:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

The first step to troublehsooting should be to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that it takes to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears following a computer reset, follow the advice given in the link I provided.

If you have questions, or require additional assistanc, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
