Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I recently had this problem and was able to resolve it, although not without some trial and error. This error code indicates an issue with 1 of 3 parts in the washer - the CCU (central control unit), the MCU (motor control unit) or the motor itself. There is no way to tell which is causing the issue without replacing them one at a time. I started by changing the motor based on other posts I had seen on-line. That was not the problem. Then replaced the CCU - again, not the cause of the problem. Lastly changed out the MCU and that solved the problem. I ended up putting the old CCU back and returning the new one.
My suggestion would be to start with the CCU, move to the MCU, and go to the motor last - the boards are easier to both replace and to return if you find they are not the issue. Good luck.
