I have a Kenmore front load washer and I'm getting an F01

Customer Question

I have a Kenmore front load washer and I'm getting an F01 error code. It has been unplugged due to a drain issue that we resolved, but now getting the electrical error. What do I need to do to resolve this?

Hi there,

That error means that the control board is failing internally, power surges or software glitch can cause this error on occasion and can be reset by killing power to the unit for 10 minutes and then plugging it back in, you want to leave it unplugged that long because it gives all the capacitors in the unit time to drain and resets the control board. If the problem continues after that then the main control board has faulted and needs to be replaced:

Part #: W10160262 click here

Its located right under the washer lid on the right side of the unit.
