Question and Answers

Q:

What does the F 01 code on my Kenmore washer indicate?

A:

The F 01 error code indicates a problem with the CCU (Central Control Unit in other words the main control board). This could be caused by an EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) communication error. This type of error can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical supply lines. Unplug the washer or disconnect electrical power for two minutes. Plug the washer back in and see if it operates properly. If not, you will need to replace the CCU control board.

Q:

How do I reset my Kenmore HEplug washer that is flashing the F 01 error code?

A:

A power surge or glitch through the electrical lines can sometimes cause this error code to be displayed on HE2+ washers. Try unplugging the washer for 5 minutes and then plugging it back in. If the error code resumes, then the electronic control board of the washer will likely need to be replaced.

If you need to replace the control board, you can order a new one from the Sears PartsDirect website. Use the full manufacturer model number of your washer to access the parts list diagram and order the correct part for your model of washer.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your washer.

Q:

Whirlpool Duet Sport #WFW8300sw00 displays code F 01.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You did replace the correct part (CCU) for the "F01" fault code. The "F24" fault code implies a water temperature sensor error. This could happen if "TH2" connector is not connected or not connected in the correct place. It must be connected to the "TH2" connector on the CCU. It can also be caused by loose of disconnected temperature sensor at the front lower part of the tub. I added an image below of the wiring diagram and specifications of the temperature sensor.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Phillip: I recommend replacing the temperature sensor for a "F24". If the temperature sensor does not measure the proper resistance but "F1" indicates a faulty CCU. I wish you still had the rebuilt CCU installed with a new temperature sensor to see what happens. Rebuilt CCU's can sometimes be faulty too.

Phillip: Did you make this measurement at the thermistor or up at the CCU by disconnecting theTH2 connector? If you made the measurement at TH2 connector then I would have to assume the CCU is faulty.

A:

Phillip; I recommend disconnecting the TH2 connector at the CCU and re-measure it. Make sure that TH2 is connected to the right location too. It could have an open wiring between the sensor and the CCU. If the sensor measures the same at TH2 then I would have to assume the CCU is faulty. NOTE: Be sure to disconnect the power cord before removing the top and TH2.

A:

Philip: Yes; measure at TH2 with it disconnected from the CCU and while the sensor connected at the tub. The resistance should not be that much difference from reading it directly across the sensor and when measuring it at TH2. Check the sensor wire for any damages. Recheck the resistance at the sensor again and compare the resistance reading. Something is not right. The resistance reading/measurements should be the same.

A:

Philip, if the sensor resistance is measuring the same at the sensor and at the CCU, replace the CCU. If it's not reading the same at the sensor and at TH2, check the sensor wiring and the connections at the sensor. Loose or dirty connections will affect the resistance measurements. But remember, F01 is a CCU failure and F24 is a sensor failure.

Phillip: It's not likely a MCU failure it spun with the previous CCU. It seems after all you have done and checked it would best to call a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer.
