Problem(s) with Kenmore front load

7 posts in this topic

So long story short I was getting error code F21 and when I went to clean out the drain it out I noticed the drain motor had water in it (thought that was odd) so I pulled the motor off and noticed the impeller had a hole in it and was probably leaking allowing the water into the motor. 

 

Well being my wife had laundry going I ran an hour to sears to get a new pump (very expensive) and the damn thing did not work so I took it back and the next one was the same issue.  I have decided there is a power issue.  Is it possible the water in the motor caused it to short and fried the control board? Or is there a fuse internally to protect it?

 

Any help would be great!

 

thank you

No Fuse ..

If it's not the Drain Pump, then it could be the wiring or the Controller

 

Tech Sheet - W10071740

This error code is only shown in Diagnostic test.

- Plug in washer or reconnect power.

Thank you.  Cant view the Tech sheet but I will try again later. 

 

Do you have the part # for the controller or a link to your parts center where I can buy it?  At this point I would rather replace parts than pay another 500 bucks for a service guy to come out again.

The CCU sends power to the drain pump.  If you're into swapping out parts, replacing the CCU is a good place to start: Part number: AP4454148

Part number: AP4454148

 

While you're in there, check the pressure hose for leaks, make sure it's on goodntight at both ends and test the pressure switch.  If you can't tesy the pressure switch, just replace it:  Part number: W10163980

Part number: W10163980
