Thank you for contacting ManageMyLife.com regarding the F01 error code being displayed by your Kenmore Elite dryer. I know error codes can be frustrating and I'm happy to help you today. The F01 error code indicates a primary control failure and the machine control electronics will need to be replaced to correct it. You can try to reset the unit by disconnecting the dryer from the outlet for 2-3 minutes, then restore the power. If the reset doesn't help and the error code returns, replace the machine control (p/n W10174745).

The machine control can be purchased from Sears PartsDirect. I included an image below with the instructions for replacing the part. If you do not feel comfortable repairing this issue yourself, an appointment can be scheduled at Sears Home Services.

I really hope this information helps you today. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.
