Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Kenmore top loading washer and it keeps giving me an error during wash mode. It says F 51. Is this something that I can fix myself?

A:

Hi Josh,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your washer.

Here is a link to a previous question that covers the F51 error; My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE washer stops and displays F 51. I have to push stop and start several times to finish a load. What does F-51 mean? . Follow Lyles troubleshooting in his answer.

I hope this is helpful. Check the things covered here, and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

What does F1 mean? 11028032701 Kenmore Elite Residential washer

A:

The F1 code on that washer indicates that the electronic control board (part W10189966) cannot detect water level in the washer. That water level detection system is a component of the electronic control board. The electronic control board usually needs to be replaced to fix that failure.

If you replace that electronic control board yourself, be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components.

If you need more help, let us know.

Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.

Q:

Auto washer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The error code "LF" flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time OR water is present but control does not detect the water level changing. The "LF" stands for Long Fill.
 
  1. Is water supply connected and turned on?
  2.  Are hose screens plugged?
  3. Is water siphoning out of the drain hose?
  4. Check for proper drain hose installation.
  5. Is the pressure hose connection from the tub to the machine/motor control pinched, kinked, plugged or leaking air?
If the water is entering too slow or not at all, I recommend disconnecting the power cord and turning the water supply off. 
  
Disconnect the hot and cold water fill hoses from the back of the washer. Place the ends of the two hoses into the tub and turn both hot and cold water valves on and confirm the water flow. Also, the two fittings that the hot and cold fill hoses were threaded on you will find a filter screen inside the port. If the screens are restricted with debris, it will restrict the water flow into the washer. You can pull/pry the screens out for cleaning but be sure to reinstall them or it could cause the valve to stick open. 
 
I added an image below that may be helpful in checking for pinched air hose between the control and the side of the tub. 
 
 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
