Question about Kenmore HE2 Washing Machines

Open Question

Will two broken shock absorbers on same side of washer cause it to display an F28 error code?

I have a Kenmore HE2t washer. I get an F28 error code when running diagnostic and when attempting to run a wash. Took back off and found two broken shock absorbers on same side. Will this cause the F28 error or do i have at least two separate problems? At first attempt the washer was sporadically taking in water and spinning at slow speed. Came back an hour later to find F28 error code. From that point onward all i could get the washer to do when attempting to wash was to lock the doors. Then it would freeze for a while and finally show the error code. Have checked for loose wires to no avail. In diagnostic mode it seems to do everything except spin at high speed (it does spin at slow speed). I don't even know if it is supposed to run at high speed in diagnostic. The washer has been moved around quite a lot due to constructions/renovation and this may have resulted in the broken shock absorbers. My wife is going to make me wash the clothes in the tub if i don't get this fixed. Help me!!!! Thanks...

    Can't figure out how to solve my problem... Replaced the two broken shock absorbers and the F28 error message went away. So, it seems that two broken shock absorbers on the same side of the machine will cause an F28 error. Didn't have to bother with the CCU or MCU. I do suggest that you shop online with the correct part number as it will probably much cheaper.

It's a bad wax motor inside the door latch. The diagnostics are buggy and do not test it properly. It should measure about 1.5K ohms, and when 120 VAC is applied to it, it should extend in about a minute. Part number 12002535 is $10 to $15.

SOURCE: LG front load washer WM2277HW. ''LE'' Error code

First try unplugging the machine for a few minutes and then retry a cycle. If you still get the LE error:

The Hall sensor (part number 6501KW2001A) has failed. The hall sensor is rather easy to replace, and is covered by a seven year part warranty (in the US). Take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Snap new sensor on and reassemble. Usually takes under a half hour. On a difficulty scale of 1 - 10, it might rate a 4. This should be a Fix-Ya for your machine, and at basically no cost!

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

The error code F28 means one or both of these parts are bad.

It would be a good idea to order both, as both components have been problematic for

I have a Kenmore HE2T error code F24


The "F24" error code is a heat sensor error code. The following link explains the error code in detail and the steps to correct it:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1976126-f24_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

In many cases, the connector plug on the NTC sensor wiggles loose and causes the error code. Check the NTC connection first to make sure it is tight and making good contact. This may save you a service call and/or replacement parts. Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing anything inside the unit.

A replacement NTC module (if required) can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com for about $10. Refer to the parts illustrations under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Each washer comes with a technical data sheet located inside the cabinet. You will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door to access it. If it is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all troubleshooting tips, wiring diagrams and fault codes with explanations.

Kenmore HE2t washer - error code 5d


5d is a definitely a the code for a plugged discharge. We removed the lower access panel and discovered a virtual treasure: $12.50 in quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies, a pen, a pencil, collar stays, 10 bobby-pins, 3 barrettes, a elastic headband, a draw string, a box cutter, 3 washers, 3 broken zipper parts, a elastic waist band. Amazing it took all to trigger a 5d error code. Hope this helps!
