Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

F Code for the Kenmore Elite he4t Front Load Washer (3 years old)

I repeatedly get the "F" code on my Kenmore Elite he4t front load washer. When I hear the warning beeps, I have to push drain and spin for the load to be complete. Is there something I can do, like perhaps reset the factory settings to troubleshoot BEFORE scheduling service? It is still covered for service.

    I have unplugged the machine. There is nothing but the letter F and the signal is different from the ending cycle signal. Sometimes it says SUD, but I'm using the appropriate detergent; however, there are times that the softener does not seep through into the machine.



    This morning I ran a cleaner for front load washers through the normal cycle and it worked just fine empty! When I wash a load of clothes it does this with small and normal size loads alike on normal and express cycles.

    I have the same problem. The machine rarely runs through the complete cycle without stopping and presenting us with a F code that is not listed in the manual. I also have a problem getting the door unlocked to get the clothes out.

    Night before last I ran the entire bottle of the cleaning solution made for front load washers through the entire cycle; in fact, it ran through perfectly...without any codes or SUD message.

Hi! ricksmith
What is the first three digits of the model number.
The he4t I have reference to does not have a "F" code error. Most of the codes are two digit, PF, F1 to F9 etc.
You could try: Pressing Pause/Cancel two times to clear code. As well as unplug for 20 seconds. Do you have power fluctuations in your area.

    When was the last time you ran the monthly cleaning cycle with 1/3 cup bleach. The cleaning cycle is in the owners manual.

    How do i get to the main drain and pump on a kenmore elite front load washer


    You will need a few towels. There is a cartridge like filter located on the front lo2er left corner of all current front load washers for cl3aning purposes. Remove or open the access panel plate and begin unscrewing the cartridge. After about 3 full turns it will begin to leak water. If you have a elevation base with a drawer place towels inside there to soak up water that leaks out. Once drained unscrew and pull straight out to clean the lower filter. There is another place to clean out just inside the drum on the front just under and behind the door seal

    Kenmore elite front load washer model 46752701 after replacing pressure control switch i still get f35 code


    Most common cause for the F35 error code: Using non-HE detergent. Detergent slime builds up in the hose, eventually getting into the analog pressure switch and killing it. Make sure you flush out as much soap as possible and make sure to use HE soap or it can keep occurring, also some vinger can calm down the suds

    I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T quietpak 9 washer. It has stopped the wash load with about 11 minutes left several times. It gives and error code DL then F alternating. The door remains locked and anytime...


    Hi,

    The error you have is due to a failure in the door latch mechanism. There is a way to manually open the door if you are a little handy I can send you some instructions, it requires pulling the lower panel off (3 screws).

    Let me know if you want me to help on this.

    Kenmore Elite quiet pack washer quit. Please help!


    The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

    If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


    Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


    F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

    Same problem with my front loader. You have to make sure to clean out the rubber trap in the front regularly. it seems to collect alot of hair and plug the drain hole. also it helps to leave the door open when you finish washing to further reduce the stagnant water smell. Use fabric softener for the towels!

    hope that helps.
