When something goes wrong with a washing machine that has a digital display, the washer flashes an error code you can use to narrow down the possible causes. For example, a Kenmore front load washer displays error codes such as UE or dc when its control detects an unbalanced load.
Below are common error code tables for the most popular brands, along with an explanation of what the code means, possible repair parts you might need and DIY advice. Visit Sears PartsDirect’s repair help section for more DIY advice for washers, other major appliances, lawn and garden equipment, garage door openers, vacuum cleaners and more. To find the owner’s manual or a complete list of replacement parts for your appliance, search for your model number.
