Question about Kenmore HE3T Washer
"FdU" is a Door Latch Unlock error code. This is usually an indication of a failed door latch, a Central Control Unit (CCU) problem, or the interconnecting wiring between the two. The first step in troublehsooting any error code on these model washers is to press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear. If the error remains, UNPLUG the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit. In many cases, resetting the CCU will correct many momentary glitches in the program operation. If the error returns following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem. The following link explains the door latch error and what you can do to troubleshoot:
I know the link is for the "Fdl" error, but the symptoms, troubleshooting and remedies are identical. I have included web links for part resources (if required).
NOTE: EACH ONE OF THESE APPLIANCES COME WITH A TECHNICAL DATA SHEET INSIDE. THIS IS THE SAME SHEET AN APPLIANCE REPAIRMAN WILL REFERENCE ON A SERVICE CALL. REFER TO THE TECH SHEET FOR MORE DETAILED TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION.
The tech sheet contains troubleshooting data, wiring diagrams, diagnostics procedures, component illustrations and all error code definitions.
To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access to the screws (a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, and come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the toe panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.
It is recommended that the tech sheet be placed back inside the appliance when repairs are completed in order avoid losing and to keep this pertinent info for future use.
If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.
