Washers n dryers usually require some balancing after a move to the new area, and when you lift the washer on a dolly, you lift it from the rear. Assuming you've already tipped the washer slighlty to one side, checked the bottom for which side has the most metal underneath. This is best done with 2 people. Do the same with the dryer. The braces are used to help balance or to keep from tipping when the machine was packed inside a large box.

I have the same problem . If I power cycle mine enough times I eventually get a F70 or F71 code. My research online suggests that the user interface board has a problem and needs to be replaced.

The good news is the warranty covers these boards for two years. The bad news is they are $360 if you are out of warranty.

SOURCE: My Kenmore dryer "Start" button does not stay depressed.

a complete model # from inside the door would be helpful, on wost dryers when this occures the motor is packed with lint so the sentrifisle switch cant move from the pastion to the run or the switch on the motor itself is bad, the run windings in the motor could be bad. some of thethe more complicated dryers have a relay on their control board than burns out. try blowing out the motor with compressed air or the blow end of a shop vac use the skinney attat. to concentrate air

Kenmore elite he5t washer model 11047789701 flashing F01 fault code- does this mean ccu must be replaced?


Do not take this as definitive answer! I am not an expert. A F01 error is indicative that the Central Control Unit cannot get instructions from the EEPROM. If you have not already done so, unplug the washer for a full 2 minutes to clear any instructions in memory, then plug it back in. If you still have a F01 error I suspicion that it is a bad CCU board. You can try to run the diagnostic on page 8 of the service manual but I do not think it will run if it is a bad CCU board.

He5t tearing clothes


Are you sure that the clothes are not getting caught on exposed zips.

Why not load some things like towels sheets (without zips/buttons etc) in the washer and see if the issue repeats itself. You should also be able to see if there are any sharp edges or loose sharp items in the drum (mind your fingers)

I have a 2002 27" kenmore elite gas dryer that runs great except you have to hold down the start button. I took it all apart and cleaned it. The motor looked fine. I think it might be the start button.

I am having the same problem. I think there is a design problem. They have tried to fix mine 3 times (replacing the dryer with a new one on the first try!) My dryer is only years old. I'm so disappointed with Sears and Kenmore.
